Rivera’s “Marisol” Remains Frighteningly Relevant Today 

Todd Theatre’s newest production, “Marisol” — which was as disturbing as it was disorienting — is not for the faint of heart. But while some moments were difficult to watch, the surrealist show was a worthwhile, deeply moving, and all-encompassing theatrical experience.

OBOC steps ‘Into the Spotlight’

At what is likely to be my last OBOC show, I appreciated the effort that went into staging such a production. I adored that the club threw themselves fully into the world of each song, leaning away from the UR-specific jokes and settings of the past.

“Hedwig and the Angry Inch” brings identity euphoria to those on and off stage

Tick Tick Boom: Don’t fear the passing of time

ROC Players are better than ‘Big Fish’

Friday night’s performance of “Big Fish” in the May Room served as an important reminder that while every story needs a good storyteller, every storyteller needs a good story.
