Theatre Review: Psycho Beach Party has Stellar Acting but Falls a Bit Flat

 Lisa Much Theatre Review: Psycho Beach Party has Stellar Acting but Falls a Bit Flat

Rare do I see a show that leaves me asking, “What the…?” (Insert word of choice there). While watching the opening night of Columbus Immersive Theater’s production of Psycho Beach Party, I felt annoyance, confusion, frustration, and a little anger. I heard a lot of laughter from the audience, but I, personally, found very little […]

Theatre Review: Short North Stage’s The Great One a Hockey Musical Everyone (Even Sports Fans) Will Enjoy

 Lisa Much Theatre Review: Short North Stage’s The Great One a Hockey Musical Everyone (Even Sports Fans) Will Enjoy

When I first heard about Short North Stage’s original musical The Great One, a hockey musical, I felt bemused. Sports and theater do not typically jive well together; or, really, sports fan and theater patrons believe they do not. As a person who knows very little about sports, I developed a keen sense of curiosity […]

Theatre Review: Shadowbox’s Sex at the Box: Uneven But With Some Raunchy Delights

Richard Sanford Richard Sanford Theatre Review: Shadowbox’s Sex at the Box: Uneven But With Some Raunchy Delights
