Plan B Theater Company will open its ambitious new play, Virtue, this week starting with a preview night on Wednesday, Feb. 15. The play is an examination of the life of Hildegard of Bingen,...

Theater Review: ’Women in Jeopardy!’

All that’s missing in Pioneer Theatre Company’s production of Wendy MacLeod’s comedy Women in Jeopardy! is the laugh track. The director-described “brand-new classic, chick flick rom com” takes us into the lives of three divorced...

Review: ’Harbur Gate’

We're pretty lucky to have local playwrights among us creating original works. Kathleen Cahill, one such human, is an award-winning writer and the author of Salt Lake Acting Company’s currently running production Harbur...

Preview: ‘Harbur Gate’ at SLAC

I’m looking forward to playwright Kathleen Cahill’s newest production at Salt Lake Acting Company. I first encountered Cahill’s work in the play The Persian Quarter, which was a taut psycho drama between...

Preview: ‘Women in Jeopardy!’

Who could use a laugh? (Weary arms are raised.) Following on the heels of the heavy hitting Fences, Pioneer Theatre Company’s upcoming production of Wendy MacLeod’s Women in Jeopardy! promises a lightly comedic...

Review: Stomp your Feet for Kinky Boots

You remember fun? (Like back when Obama was president?) C’mon…you know… fun—care-free, lighthearted, lovely whimsical, Cyndi Lauper, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” F-U-N. You do? Well then. Kinky Boots, now playing through Jan....

Made for Walking

Mayor Ralph’s dream comes true. Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein’s musical Kinky Boots could be a metaphor for former Mayor Ralph Becker’s struggle to build the Eccles Theater. To save a shoe business...

Review: ’Fences’ at PMT is a Slow Dramatic Burn

I have heard that if you throw a frog in a pot of boiling water, it’ll leap right out. But, if you start out with cool water and gently raise the temperature...

Not the Movie: The play ‘Fences' opens this weekend at PMT

I’ve recently read a lot about August Wilson’s Pulitzer-Prize winning play Fences. Most of it, however, concerns the now-playing film adaptation starting Denzel Washington and Viola Davis (reprising their stage roles). And...

Events in Park City

Cirque Eloize Cirque du Soleil is great, but Las Vegas is terrible and not all of us are looking for an entertainment environment that feels like a fever dream. Thankfully Cirque Éloize is...

Theater Review: Hedwig and the Angry Inch at The Eccles

I could tell as soon as I walked into The Eccles Theater on Tuesday night that the crowd there to see Hedwig and the Angry Inch was not the typical musical theater...

Theater Preview: Hedwig and the Angry Inch at The Eccles

Hedwig and the Angry Inch was probably never supposed to be on Broadway. Instead, it was probably meant to always be relegated to small off-Broadway theaters and to productions in regional theaters. But...

Theater Review: Irving Berlin's White Christmas at The Eccles

It should come as no surprise to readers of my reviews that I'm a cynical person—I never miss an opportunity to make a snide remark or to dismiss something as not-for-me. In...

Preview: White Christmas at The Eccles Theater

“We're gonna have the hap-hap-happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny f*cking Kaye.” Okay, I admit, that's not White Christmas. But it is part of Clark Griswold's epic rant in National Lampoon's Christmas...

The ReduxNut-Cracker breathes new life into holiday classic

This year's Odyssey Dance Theatre performance of the classic Nutcracker ballet will get an upgrade with The ReduxNut-Cracker. In the company's original version, Clara receives a smartphone instead of a nutcracker for Christmas, and it...
