Martin on New Plays: Camelot
Two River Theater in Red Bank, New Jersey -- a charming, welcoming space only a bit more than an hour from midtown Manhattan -- is home to the NYC area's most delightful musical of the season: a luminous, revelatory, thrilling and entertaining production of "Camelot."
The Farm Report: Ashland - Night two
The Farm Theater in collaboration with three colleges (Ashland University, Clark University, and Centre College) commissioned playwright Lindsay Joy to write a play. This blog is to document the journey of the play and be a place for all of us (you included) to join the creative conversation.
The value of seeing the play the second time was seeing these living characters and their situation become real - and in that reality comes awareness of things you would like to know more about or struggles that can be intensified.
