"The Winning Streak"Theatre can be a great escape, but it can also be so much more. In 2006, most of the area's challenging works were presented by the New Ground Theatre, My Verona Productions, and the Prenzie Players, and over the past year and a half, I've had the pleasure of interviewing the impresarios of these organizations: New Ground Artistic Director Chris Jansen, My Verona producers Sean Leary and Tristan Tapscott, and Prenzie founders Cait Bodenbender, John Luxton, Aaron Sullivan, and Denise Yoder.

So, as I'm on a first-name basis with all of them, permit me to direct a few holiday cards their way:

New Ground Theatre’s presentation of Rebecca Gilman’s stalker drama Boy Gets Girl is sensationally entertaining stuff – the most consistently smartly acted and directed work I’ve yet seen from this organization – and the production becomes all the more impressive when you realize just how easily it could have proven unbearable.

The psychological drama Scotland Road, the first production in New Ground Theatre’s 2005-6 season, is both entertaining and disheartening – entertaining because of the skill of director Michael Oberfield and his cast, disheartening because playwright Jeffrey Hatcher’s work doesn’t quite seem to deserve their skill.

My Verona’s "Closer" a Great Season Opener

Few stage sights are as thrilling as a cast of genuinely hungry actors, especially when they have genuinely meaty material to tear into. My Verona Productions’ Closer is a biting, at times painful, piece, yet it’s suffused with joy; the actors seem to be relishing the opportunity to verbally claw, scrape, and expose (often self-inflicted) wounds.

New Ground Turns Mamet’s "Boston Marriage" into a Massacre

From first scene to last, New Ground Theatre’s production of Boston Marriage is an almost total misreading of David Mamet’s 1999 work. As usual, New Ground’s decision to tackle offbeat and challenging material is commendable, but its latest offering is so wrong-headed in execution that it makes you understand why audiences often shy away from the offbeat and challenging.
