Avenue Q (Review)

The best address in Dayton is Avenue Q

0 Comments · Monday, June 24, 2013
 Much of Avenue Q's humor derives from the use of puppets very much like those you will remember from Sesame Street. But here they're gay, racist and slutty.

Tale of Hollywood desperation and dementia gets a big-time patina

0 Comments · Monday, May 13, 2013
David Zlatic designed a production — scenery, lighting in the style of film noir and a stream of well executed photographic and video projections in moody black-and-white — that works very well, including Desmond’s mansion with a sweeping central staircase.

Last weekend I traveled to Louisville, Ky., for the 37th annual Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre. I’ve attended regularly since 1998 and thoroughly enjoyed these doses of new, ambitiously conceived and professionally presented works.
