  • Review: 'Macbeth' at Mad Cow Theatre

    Review: 'Macbeth' at Mad Cow Theatre
    At the heart of Mad Cow Theatre's three-actor version of Macbeth is a rich vein of twisted malice. It's there in the way Sophia Wise slowly rocks back and forth on her heels in anticipation of Macbeth's downfall. And the way Michael Sapp's eyes glitter...
  • Theater review: 'Private Lives' from Mad Cow Theatre

    Theater review: 'Private Lives' from Mad Cow Theatre
    A successful staging ofNoel Coward's"Private Lives" means pulling off a tricky balancing act with precision — several balancing acts, in fact. Perhaps director Timothy Williams is also a tightrope walker, because in Mad Cow Theatre's production...
  • The year in theater, 2011: Puppets, Witches and Men in Heels

    The year in theater, 2011: Puppets, Witches and Men in Heels
    What? Another year has gone by already? Here are some theater reflections at the end of 2011. •Best scene-stealer: Isn't "Chicago" the story of two women convicts? In Theatre Downtown's production last January, Joel Warren as lawyer Billy Flynn more...
  • Theater review: 'Dancing at Lughnasa' from Mad Cow Theatre

     Theater review: 'Dancing at Lughnasa' from Mad Cow Theatre
    There's a beautifully disturbing undercurrent of change in Brian Friel's "Dancing at Lughnasa." It's 1936 in rural Ireland, and 7-year-old Michael goes to school now. Radios are displacing gramophones as a source of entertainment. And the world order...
  • Theater review: 'Hedda Gabler' from Mad Cow Theatre

    Theater review: 'Hedda Gabler' from Mad Cow Theatre
    Hedda Gabler is one tough cookie to love. Heck, let's set the bar lower: She's tough to like. Keep in mind I'm talking about the title character of Henrik Ibsen's play, not the current production at Mad Cow Theatre in which there's plenty to like. Ibsen...
  • Theater review: 'Rashomon' from Mad Cow Theatre

    Theater review: 'Rashomon' from Mad Cow Theatre
    In "Rashomon," three witnesses to a murder in Japan of long ago each present very different accounts of the crime. Why would they do such a thing? That's what three other characters — a woodcutter, priest and wigmaker — ponder. In Mad Cow...
  • Theater review: 'Legacy of Light' from Mad Cow Theatre

    Theater review: 'Legacy of Light' from Mad Cow Theatre
    I hesitate to tell you that "Legacy of Light" contains philosophical musings, references to Voltaire's "Candide," discussion of Sir Isaac Newton's science and a mini-lecture on dark matter. I hesitate because I fear you will think if you don't have a PhD...
  • Theater review: 'The Understudy' from Mad Cow Theatre

    Theater review: 'The Understudy' from Mad Cow Theatre
    "I'm not bitter," explains the title character in thecomedy "The Understudy." In fact, he explains it repeatedly, you know, in that way that makes you doubt the truthfulness of that statement. Harry (Josh Geoghagan) has reason to feel that way: He's a...
  • Theater review: 'Next Fall' at Mad Cow Theatre

    Theater review: 'Next Fall' at Mad Cow Theatre
    There was a time when people were taught not to discuss religion and politics in polite company. (Of course these days, the two topics so often seem to be the same.) There was a good, common-sense reason for such a policy: No one ever agrees 100 percent...
  • Theater review: 'The Drowsy Chaperone' from Mad Cow Theatre

    Theater review: 'The Drowsy Chaperone' from Mad Cow Theatre
    "The Drowsy Chaperone" is a love letter to the good (and the bad) of musical theater told through the eyes of one devotee, speaking for all the fans of the genre. For those fans, the best thing about Mad Cow Theatre's uneven production of the 2006...
  • Terry Teachout's 'Satchmo at the Waldorf' has world premiere in Orlando

    Terry Teachout's 'Satchmo at the Waldorf' has world premiere in Orlando
    Writer and arts critic Terry Teachout first encountered jazz great Louis Armstrong on "The Ed Sullivan Show" — thanks to his mother. It was the mid-1960s, and Armstrong was singing "Hello, Dolly!" He recalls: "My mom called me in and said, 'This...
