FIRE IN A DARK HOUSE

...looking at the show from a larger picture, I think Smith and Mariano's decision to debut it during this political arena was smart. It may have had some flaws but the message intended for the audience was clearly envisioned. The America we live in is a tumultuous country, and it's important for us to understand history should never repeat itself... This timely piece brings to light what it means to be an immigrant and an American, two hotly debated words within the White House. It shouldn't matter where someone is from or the color of his or her skin because immigrants built America into the beautiful melting pot it is today.

ALL MY SONS

Directed by Linda Alznauer and produced by Diane Frank and Alznauer for The Group Rep, the story is incredibly emotional and deals with themes quintessential to understanding what post-war life was like in America in the 1940s. America came out on top and therefore men were viewed as strong and able-bodied who were never seen displaying sorrow and other deep-seated emotions that surrounded death and loss. ...I enjoyed GRT's production of ALL MY SONS.

RUMORS

I found RUMORS to be a fun time even though I didn't necessarily enjoy most of the script. I thought Act 1 was performed better than Act 2, but that might be because by Act 2 I was starting to find Simon's writing a little kitschy and unbearable. Despite all of that, I would recommend RUMORS to my friends and family.

DON'T HUG ME, WE'RE FAMILY

I found DON'T HUG ME, WE'RE FAMILY to be a good laugh, a good time and in no way serious. If you are looking for a way to de-stress after a long Friday at work or are looking for a fun weekend nighttime activity, by all means attend a performance of this show. Despite a few mishaps, the point of this show is to bring joy and happiness to the audience, and on opening night, it did exactly that.

ROAR

ROAR continued to catch me by surprise the entire night. With no real script (to my understanding), Felder used his knowledge and passion for classic rock and folk music to bring the show to life.
