Reckless Struggles At Being Relatable Or Riotous

2 years ago by Jessica Goldman
Beware a Director’s notes assuring us that Reckless, Craig Lucas’ darkly comedic Christmas play penned in 1983, feels modern and relatable.

It's Difficult to Like Charlotte in Everything Will Be Different, But Actress Clarity Welch Delivers a Tour-de-force Performance

4 years ago by D. L. Groover
Fifteen-year-old Charlotte (a wildly unfiltered Clarity Welch) is a mess. The poster child of teen angst, this high-schooler is devastated by the death of her beloved beautiful mother.

4 years ago by D. L. Groover
Meet Macedonio “The Mace” Guerro (Luis Galindo, in the role of a lifetime). Squat and a bit doughy, he sits on the top turnbuckle at a corner of the wrestling ring. He fits comfortably there; it's home turf, it's where he belongs. Although he's not the star at THE Wrestling,...
