That’s All Right Baby

It’s a wonder they don’t bring the house down. It rocks. It rolls. But it remains intact while four actors/singers/instrumentalists personify Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley as if there were no tomorrow. There’s only now. They wail. They stomp. They leap. They swing. They soar. They sing. They play. They come together as the Million Dollar Quartet, in Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux’s...

Dark Days in Dublin

Brigit Saint Brigit Theatre Company continues its mission of focusing on Irish culture in an earnest and respectable production of Sean O’Casey’s famed Juno and the Paycock.  Craig Lee’s excellently conceived set brings home the dreariness of life in these characters’ tenement.
