AMADEUS Irish Classical Theatre Company/Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra/Kleinhans Music Hall
A crazy kid with talent for the ages and a musical bureaucrat with an extreme case of jealousy.

GROUNDED Kavinoky Theatre
War so sterile it’s fought on a black and white video screen, video games with real death.

SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH Irish Classical Theatre Company/Andrews Theatre
For theatrical purposes, there’s nothing like a good delusion.
It’s Tennessee Williams and “Sweet Bird of Youth.”

DINNER WITH FRIENDS Road Less Traveled Productions/RLTP Theater
Dinner with friends, ah!
Often pleasant but also prone to problems and difficulties and poorly said comments.

DEAR LYDIA, Alleyway Theatre
Advice columnists are all over the media.
They go back to the British papers with their “agony aunts.”

AMERICAN IDIOT American Repertory Theater of WNY/330 Amherst St.
For a certain generation, Green Day’s “American Idiot” will remind you of “Hair” and its young people and a war, clearly an earlier war than “Idiot.”

URINETOWN: The Musical Subversive Theatre/Manny Fried Playhouse
“Urinetown” is the perfect musical for the lefty atmosphere of Subversive Theatre, a society whose bathrooms are controlled by a private monopoly, enforced by the police.

GYPSY MusicalFare Theatre/Daemen College
“Gypsy” is one of those classic shows, on stage constantly and on the big screen.
The difficulty is that it’s hard to cast, because it needs singers and dancers and, most notably, it needs Mama Rose.

THE DANCE OF DEATH Studio Theatre/Shaw Festival
You can count on a few things from the Swedish playwright, depressing story, fantastic characters and social issues.
