Theater review: 'All Because of Agatha' lacks wit and sparkle
Playwright Jonathan Troy must have had a copy of Noel Coward's "Blithe Spirit" close at hand when he wrote his "All Because of Agatha." Troy, however, takes Coward's basic premise of a couple haunted by a ghost for his plot but then dumbs it down with a pale imitation that lacks...

Theater review: Art of conversation shines in 'Sense and Sensibility'
Even the coiffures of the two oldest Dashwood sisters speak to their disparate natures: Elinor's is simple and sensible; Marianne's overly ornate, right down to the twin ringlets that frame her pretty face. In Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility," it quickly becomes clear that Elinor...

Theater review: All about the sardines in UMD's hilarious 'Noises Off'
In Michael Frayn's farce "Noises Off," the play within a play is aptly named "Nothing On." Lloyd, the hapless director, just wants to get through the play once before they open the next evening. In a rehearsal where nothing goes right, props are lost, and a drunken actor is missing,...

Theater review: 'Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage' where Wild West meets 'Evil Dead'
Part satire, part parody, part high camp, part lowbrow, with gore galore, the sum of the parts of "Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage" screams Renegade Theater. It's is one of those shows that would cause many other theater companies to run for the hills. Renegade, however, doubles...
