Hello, Dolly!

The Matchmaker is a Hit!

Dolly Gallagher Levi is savvy, sassy and yet sweet—and young actress Isabella Wolder fits that role perfectly, in Hello, Dolly! now on stage at the Grand Theatre. It is a wonderful romp back to the 1890s in Yonkers. Dolly Levi is a widow, missing her husband, but quite capable of looking after herself. She is a matchmaker who finds suitable spouses for others, but at the same time, asking her late husband for a sign that she should find a mate …

A town is simply a semi-organized collection of people of different personalities and dreams, at least at the surface. This play is a somewhat meandering take on that truism that considerably ramps up the emotional power of its telling of life’s different directions in its second half.

Ever since video games became a mainstay of popular culture, and then a dominant one, they have attracted a passion as powerful as the kneejerk criticism that inevitably followed their rise. This play provides a newer perspective of four gamers getting deep into a massively multi-player game and finding that the real world still has a hold they cannot ignore.

Considering that popular culture is just beginning to shed the old arcade game stereotypes of the medium, this play is a more nuanced story about gamers as it’s written by one. What we have is a humorous milder …

Romeo and Juliet

Reviewed by , July 23, 2015

There have been a bazillion and one productions of Romeo and Juliet over the year. It’s arguably William Shakespeare’s most famous play, and sometimes companies go a little overboard trying to be unique in their presentation. Troubadour Theatre Collective’s production of Romeo and Juliet, running at the London Roundhouse, straddles that line effectively — modernizing the play whilst staying true to its roots in an overall enjoyable presentation.

[Note: webmaster Peter Janes is the producer of this play.]
