MY reality can whip YOUR reality!

Written by Andrea Braun
One of the most appealing aspects of Yazmina Reza’s plays is how readily we see ourselves in her characters. Common to her style is a brief (around 90 minutes) focused look at one thing or event. For example, in Art,…

Big hair, big dreams and bigotry in Baltimore

Written by Andrea Braun
If you don’t live under a rock, you probably know the name “Tracy Turnblad,” or at least recognize Hairspray as more than a product to set your coiffure. Born in the twisted mind of John Waters with the divine Divine…

Chockful O’ 'Nuts'

Written by Andrea Braun
Much of the time, we regard “insanity” pleas as a cop-out in criminal cases, I think. If you’re not responsible for your actions, then you won’t be punished to the full extent of the law. Claudia Faith Draper (Lara Buck)…
