Annie at the Children’s Theatre Company

Jumpin’ Jehosaphat, but those orphans are cute.  Led by the inimitable Annie, belting out the uptempo “Maybe”, a niftily drawn 1930s NYC skyline looming in the background, the girls dance and mug winningly and by golly they steal our hearts.  “Awwwwwwww”s and “Oooooooooh”s swept through the Children’s Theater auditorium on opening night.  Never mind...

Arms And The Man at the Guthrie Theater

In Arms And The Man (on the Guthrie‘s McGuire Stage, through May 8 ) George Bernard Shaw hides deep cynicism in plain sight, behind a veneer of flashy dialogue, sweet romance, giddy farce, lovable preening upperclass characters.  We laugh, get pulled in by high energy antics, we have a wonderful time.  But Shaw, the...
