Review: ‘The Most Spectacularly Lamentable Trial of Miz Martha Washington’ at Ally Theatre Company

“I do believe you darkies are trying to kill me,” says Martha Washington to her house slaves in this fantastical-historical play, just opened in a sensationally cheeky production at the new Ally Theatre Company. Martha has reason to be concerned. Philadelphia Playwright James Ijames, a 2017 Whiting Award recipient, made up the script’s surreal story: […]

‘Major Barbara’ at Pallas Theater Collective

Money Talks The Pallas Theatre Collective’s Major Barbara is a captivating, thought-provoking comedy. The themes of class disparity, the necessity to compromise one’s values to survive, and the redemptive value (or not) of religion still pervade our everyday lives. Shaw’s perspective seemed to lean towards the practical; “Lack of money” he once said, “is the […]

‘Major Barbara’ at Pallas Theatre Collective

It’s not always easy to figure out what view of life George Bernard Shaw is trying to express in Major Barbara. Though he was a freethinker, he gives us a witty, tolerant, idealistic heroine, Barbara, who’s passionate about her work with the Salvation Army; though he was a committed socialist, he nevertheless puts some of […]

‘The Taming of the Shrew’ at Pallas Theatre Collective

Shakespeare’s Shrew is always a challenge. Misogynistic in sentiment, slapstickishly machismo in design, its story of how to tame a headstrong, stubborn woman couldn’t be more ethically risky, especially considering recent high publicity woman-battering NFL headlines (not to mention women battering in the military, in the police force, among the lawyers and judges, and the….).

‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ at Pallas Theatre Collective

Were Betty Friedan and H.P. Lovecraft to have a baby, Pallas Theatre Collective’s new musical, might be their demented offspring. The show (with music by Sarah Taylor Ellis, book and lyrics by Lane Williamson) tells the story of a woman known only as “wife” (Ty Hallmark) who is confined to a single room due to […]

‘She Stoops to Conquer’ at Pallas Theatre Collective

David Mavricos, as the confused suitor, Charles Marlow, exemplifies the quality of Pallas Theatre Collective’s production of Oliver Goldsmith’s popular farcical romp She Stoops to Conquer. Filled with confused identities and the vagaries of love in 1800, AnneMarie T. Saunders smartly directs this delightful journey, which is void of diversions, and has a plot which is very, very […]
