From Venice to Memphis to Avenue Q: Looking back on local theatre in 2012
Let's not fight. You might like only Shakespeare and restoration comedies, and I might take pride in seeing Cats 99 times.

The Gamm’s Circle Mirror Transformation
It could be called the water cooler effect: casual contacts among unlike people, repeated often enough, can lead to unlikely friendships.

Review: The Gamm's Paul examines the power of faith
Looking at Christianity objectively, historically, can appear to be critical, since religion is a matter of faith.

The Gamm's masterful Doll's House
There have been other plays well worth seeing this season, but nothing like this masterpiece at the Gamm. And I don't mainly mean the classic by Henrik Ibsen itself, since A Doll's House in shaky hands can come across as shrill and lesson-laden.
A matter of trust

Review: The Gamm's Child's Christmas in Wales
The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre is presenting Dylan Thomas's A Child's Christmas in Wales , always a good idea at this time of year. This expanded version of the 2003 adaptation by artistic director Tony Estrella incorporates fragments of other works

Gamm's Mauritius gets a stamp of semi-approval
The very idea of spinning a tale of suspense and high drama over stamp collecting is comical, so Theresa Rebeck's Mauritius is certainly funny. The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre is staging it through November 21, directed by Rachel Walshe.

If we've come to know anything about 2nd Story Theatre, it's that we shouldn't presume to know what plays to expect.

Review: Gamm Theatre stages Glengarry Glen Ross
As a playwright, David Mamet is tritely, inaccurately, and frequently accused of being a misogynist. But the evidence of his 1982 Glengarry Glen Ross indicates quite the opposite.

Talking ’bout a revolution
It takes a theatrical genius like Tom Stoppard to come up with Rock ’n’ Roll, which merges the pulsing spirit of both until they feel like one. And it takes a theater of the caliber of the Gamm to make history feel like a Stones concert that becomes a po

The torment within
In dramatic terms, it doesn't really matter whether the female protagonist of 4:48 Psychosis commits suicide at the end of the play.

Cries and whispers
Mental illness is a touchy subject, one that needs to be handled sensitively on stage or not at all.
The Gamm finds the balance in 4:48 Psychosis

Brilliant and infuriating
Shakespeare didn’t slow dance when he wrote Romeo and Juliet — he went for the essence of impetuous young love like a brisk waltz.

An awkward adaptation
Times change, but the frailties of the human heart . . . not so much. That overworked muscle can be haplessly generous or slammed-door shut. Nathaniel Hawthorne's mid-19th century novel The Scarlet Letter still stands as a perceptive examination of th

Ideas and emotions
Grace takes place in the recent memories of the title character as well as in her difficult present. The basic concern here, which nags her like a toothache, is the non-existence of the divine.

Review: Awake and Sing!
Written at the beginning of the Depression, Clifford Odets's Awake and Sing! sounds from its title like a paean to American exuberance and chest-thumping optimism.

At this time of renewed political idealism in the country, director Judith Swift has labeled the London setting of An Ideal Husband , at the Gamm through December 7, as "inspired by the 19th century, set in the 20th century, reflected in the 21st centu
