Custodian of a Dream

Upon meeting Fuzz Roark you are immediately drawn to his southern charm and warm personality. Since 2005, the South Carolina native has been the artistic managing director of one of Baltimore’s special gems, Audrey Herman’s Spotlighters Theatre.

Approaching Leonard Bernstein, Arthur Laurents, Stephen Sondheim and Jerorme Robbins seminal work West Side Story is no easy task.  The musical, which premiered on Broadway in 1957, has become a part of our American Theatre cannon in much the same way as the works by Eugene O’Neill, Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller. Musical Theatre is a uniquely “American” invention that has had a lasting contribution to international theatre.

Land, Love and Loss

Outside Mulligar at Everyman Theatre

Three years ago, I was lucky enough to visit the rolling hills and gorgeous vistas of Ireland.  As I write this review, I am looking at framed pictures of my adventures that include the Cliffs of Moore, Blarney Castle, Trinity College and more castles that I could possibly count.  When asked about my experiences in Ireland, I often respond that one cannot comprehend the color Green until one visits Ireland. It is part of the energy of the people of the land—friendly, charming, naughty and full of life.  It is in that spirit that I saw the Baltimore premiere of John Patrick Shanley’s latest work Outside Mullingar at Everyman Theatre.

Center Stage Tackles Football

Center Stage’s latest production X’s and O’s takes a hard look at America’s number one sport. The play is written by K.J. Sanchez with Jenny Mercein, and features dramatized interviews with real people – players, family members, doctors – whose names have been changed, in addition to scenes, presentations, projections and a few comedic gags, all of which culminate in lampooning the sport of football, characterizing the corporate monstrosity as immoral, predatory, and historically exploitive, with few redeeming qualities.
