The Gamm's masterful Doll's House

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

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

Political intrigue, parallels to today’s electoral brouhaha, and reminders of historical warnings, all presented in dignified but unpretentious blank verse cadences.

Anything but tame
Director Peter Sampieri and an ace troupe are mounting a slam-bang production of the comedy that sparkles with originality and resolves a feminist objection to the play that we can assume is older than the play itself.
A smart take on Shakespeare’s Shrew

The art of violence
The most frightening thing about this play is the prospect that less than first-rate actors can perform it, skating upon its sensationalism rather than sinking into its depths.

Peace and war
War. What is it good for? More than absolutely nothing, the indomitable title character of Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage and Her Children would contend.

Robert Frost, loving his little rhymes, once compared writing free verse to playing tennis without a net. Playwright David Hirson might very well enjoy swinging a racket in shackles, considering the fun he’s had composing La Bête entirely in rhymed co
