Leapin’ lizards! Limited-run 'Annie' worth effort to catch this weekend

Loosely based on "Little Orphan Annie," a Depression-era cartoon strip, the narrative of “Annie” is straightforward – plucky, red-headed orphan warms the heart of a billionaire industrialist.

Kooky 50-year-old 'Barefoot in the Park' shows its age

Neil Simon is usually easy money for a theatre troupe. But in the case of Arizona Repertory Theatre’s “Barefoot in the Park,” the world of the early 1960s feels more like an off-kilter alternate reality than a fond memory. If the pre-Beatles Camelot culture represented here is to be believed, were we really so vapid and narrow-minded?... Read more»

Irresistible 'Irving Berlin' — It's not about genius, it's about endurance

A one-man show, especially a jukebox musical focused on a single composer, has inherent limitations. “Hershey Felder as Irving Berlin,” of course, has two key tools to overcome these challenges. The first is Berlin’s rich song catalog, featuring classics such as “Blue Skies,” “White Christmas” and “God Bless America.” The second is Hershey Felder himself. ... Read more»

The thrill remains the same: Honor BB King and go listen to live music

Like most music lovers, I'm listening to some sweet old B.B. King cuts on Friday.

UA’s 'A Little Night Music' lightens up the evening

The UA’s “A Little Night Music” should satisfy stalwart Steven Sondheim fans, who can be highly opinionated about his works. It is also a serviceable introduction for anyone not already familiar with America’s greatest living musical theatre composer.... Read more»

Tucson playwright wins $10k Yale Drama prize

Barbara Seyda, a Tucson writer and photographer, was awarded the 2015 Yale Drama Series Prize for her play "Celia, A Slave: 26 Characters Testify."

Opera Distillery brews up new take on Mozart classic

This should not work. Red-and-white checkered tablecloths. Pizza, popcorn and beer served by staff shuttling in and out during the performance. Opera. Opera? Yes, grand opera in a most unusual setting. Where is the solemnity? The dignity? The reserve that accompanies the typical opera experience? The bizarre sets and extreme costumes?... Read more»

Rogue proclaims, 'Let England shake, rattle and roll'

Rogue Theatre’s latest, "Jerusalem," focuses on Johnny “Rooster” Byron, a hard-drinking, profane but lovable ne’er-do-well and lady’s man. Rooster’s main redeeming quality is his drug dealing, reviled by proper town folk, but also quietly relied upon by the villagers. Inspired by William Blake and a life-loving Gypsy, the play explores life in the vanishing wilds of Britain.... Read more»
