Hansel & Gretel too grim to enchant

Perseverance Theater ends its 2009/2010 season with a folk musical rendition of "Hansel and Gretel." I went to the theater in excited anticipation built from all the hype surrounding this production and left sorely disappointed. Though the play affords a feast of visual delights for the eye and showcases stellar acting talent, it suffers from a stale storyline, dull pacing and a flat musical score.

Wooly mammoths and wars and floods, oh my!

Perseverance opens its 31st season with a roller coaster ride of fun and frustration, Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning play within a play, "The Skin of Our Teeth."

When theatrical spectacle isn't enough

Perseverance Theatre's current production, Sarah Ruhl's "Eurydice," opens with symphonic genius: Jocelyn Clark and Ed Littlefield play a haunting duet that evokes the ocean's steady rhythmic tide. Even though the play is not a musical, the live music created by Clark and Littlefield throughout the performance is a defining character in Roblin Gray Davis's production, and in my view, the star of the show.

'Boom' lives up to its name

Perseverance's "Boom," written by Peter Sinn Nachtreib, certainly lives up to its name.

'Leading Ladies' offers a new twist on classic farce

Perseverance Theater opens its second main stage show of the season Friday with Ken Ludwig's "Leading Ladies," a new creative twist on a fail-safe formula for farce.

An unforgettable night at the theater

Ken Ludwig's "Leading Ladies" is a night of theater you do not want to miss. Two thumbs up, five stars, and hats off to Perseverance for this madcap production. Opening night, Nov. 6, was a magical evening of theater that I am sure will grow toward perfection with each passing performance.
