Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella @ Rose Center Theater – Review

Written by Daniella Litvak 

One of Cinderella’s enduring qualities is its adaptability. The fairy tale about a girl and her glass slippers has been told in novels, films — animated and live-action — and of course musicals. Theater legends Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II adapted Cinderella into a musical for television in 1957 (starring Julie Andrews in the title role). Afterwards, it made the transition to stage show, becoming a popular production in the process. Continue Reading

“God of Carnage” surprisingly, is not a myth about unclothed Spartans. It’s a lurid headline that brings to mind grisly images of battles led by a shirtless Gerard Butler, but funnily enough, there are no naked Grecians here to be found. Forced into close proximity by the violent actions of their own children, two very American, very “typical” couples show us that wrath lurks in the hearts of even the most refined among us. The Wayward Artists “God of Carnage” is a thought provoking show that pumps out a few shocks along the way.

The Vandal @ The Chance Theater – Review

(Photo by Doug Catiller, True Image Studio)


Two strangers are waiting for the bus on a cold road at night… next to a cemetery. The bus is late. The woman’s coat is too thin. And this fast-talking teenager waiting at the same bus stop won’t leave her alone. He works hard to get her to talk to him, using everything from philosophical riffs to brash seduction. Just around the corner is a liquor store, whose owner is waiting for a special delivery. All three people have no idea what this fateful night holds in store… and that it may provide the answers they’ve all been looking for.  Taken from the website.
