ROOMMATE American Repertory Theater of WNY/The 330 Performance Space
I knew a collector for a local mobbed up money lender, best known for using a 2X4 to collect.
After all, who would see a piece of lumber as a weapon?

Love among the arts glitterati, something for everybody.

IT CAN'T HAPPEN HERE Subversive Theatre/Manny Fried Playhouse
Subversive Theatre does many shows other local theaters are no way going to do, in keeping with its message of dissent.

THE OLD LADY The New Phoenix Theatre Company
Families are strange and quirky, each in their own way.

JOHN Road Less Traveled Productions/RLTP Theater
Sometimes a show just doesn’t work.
Road Less Traveled’s “John” qualifies.
Besides that, it’s boring.

THE PRODUCERS Kavinoky Theatre
It’s the kind of world where corporations make more money by having fewer employees and get tax write-offs for getting rid of them.

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER MusicalFare Theatre/Daemen College
In popular entertainment, we’ve seen a fad for prequels, the idea that if we know where people come from, we will better understand where they are.

MIDDLETOWN Jackie Maxwell Studio Theatre/Shaw Festival
The 1929 study “Middletown” is a sociological look at an unnamed community grappling with the social change of the early 20th Century.

DRACULA Festival Theatre/Shaw Festival
“Dracula” is a wonderful show but the Shaw Festival production occasionally makes you want to be bitten just so it’s over.

THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL Avon Theatre/Stratford Festival
Sometimes you get lucky.
When Stratford impresario Antoni Cimolino scheduled Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s Restoration comedy “The School for Scandal,” he probably figured it was time for classic comedy.

AN OCTOROON Royal George Theatre/Shaw Festival
The best part of the Shaw Festival’s “An Octoroon” is the work of André Sills as the star and narrator of this melodramatic tale of the Old South in the last days of slavery.

HMS PINAFORE Avon Theatre/Stratford Festival
In these current days where there are concerns about all kinds of issues, Gilbert and Sullivan’s “HMS Pinafore” may be one of the few shows which makes it onto stages without selective slashings.
Of course, a wonderful production on Stratford Festival’s Avon Theatre stage may also have something to do with it.

ANDROCLES AND THE LION Court House Theatre/Shaw Festival
In his director’s notes for “Androcles and the Lion,” Tim Carroll describes George Bernard Shaw’s play as “A crazy mishmash.”
So, is Carroll’s production.

Listen carefully to your family stories and compare them to your own memories of events.

WILDE TALES Royal George Theatre/Shaw Festival
From his perch on the shadowy edge of patrician society, Oscar Wilde could see things as few others could.
