THE WHO'S TOMMY MusicalFare Theatre
When The Who first created “Tommy,” it was a concert, as at Woodstock where they played much of the music.

ART Kaleidoscope Theatre/Medaille College
It’s not really very visible in the program but Yasmina Reza’s “Art” was originally written in French and given a strong translation by Christopher Hampton.
It’s only as the interesting play continues that its French nature becomes very, very clear.

TO THE TOP Alleyway Theatre
Through the early scenes of “To the Top,” I kept having that déjà vu sense of “Waiting for Godot” and Samuel Beckett would have enjoyed the opening segments and the script language.

It may be the best acting performance of this theater season but “Dai” is thoroughly, utterly depressing

ARCADIA Court House Theatre/Shaw Festival
The true genius is someone who comes up with something truly new.
That genius can be like Charles Babbage whose early computer couldn't be built in his day because the machine tool industry couldn't handle the tolerances.
That's what Tom Stoppard's “Arcadia” is about, two women kept in their place.
