It’s the production design of this Macbeth, which is somehow both opulent and plain, but altogether unique, that sets this version of ‘Macbeth’ apart.

If you need just one reason to see this show, Josh Young is that reason

Grant Neale stars as Polanski during three distinct periods of Polanski’s life
If you’d like to see an animated production of one of the better musicals from last decade, I’d recommend getting your tickets to The Wedding Singer soon.
Brandon Walker’s forte is emotionally conflicted, mentally troubled characters, and if that doesn’t describe Hamlet’s character I don’t know what does.
Billy Elliot the Musical, currently playing in San Diego, features two wonderful performances from Rich Hebert and Mitchell Tobin.
Without mentioning them all individually I have nothing but praise for each actor in the play because this is very much a group effort — each part is significant.
The best way to describe Ann, Holland Taylor’s one-woman show about former governor of Texas Ann Richards that she both wrote and stars in, is what the Hall of Presidents in Disney World would be like if instead of a robotic Barack Obama the host was a Texas-twanged white-haired lady who didn’t care that she was on a stage in the family-friendliest theme park in the world.
When people I know in theater ask me what growing company I think has its act together (horrible pun not intended), The Seeing Place is always the first that comes to mind.
The biggest compliment I can give the cast and crew of #hero is that the approximately 110 minute play is just too short to fully tackle the full potential of these characters.
Without question, the highlight of this production is the cast.
New York City’s The Seeing Place has constantly demonstrated that what it offers is versatility in its productions, but the only thing that never changes is the quality of the performance and the value of the ticket prices.
The Encores! series at the New York City Center began twenty years ago and presents forgotten musical gems and a handful of new works for limited engagements, some of which have later gone on to great acclaim when selected for longer runs elsewhere.

Touring around the country and now currently in San Diego, the 25th Anniversary production of Les Miserable is excellent.
With so much indie theater in New York City it’s impossible for me to make it to every production I’m invited to review. So before I even get into my review of The Seeing Place’s double-bill of Harold Pinter’s The Lover and John Patrick Shanley’s Danny and the Deep Blue Sea, I feel obligated to point out that this is the third Seeing Place production that I’ve been invited to review this season and perhaps the biggest compliment I can pay them is that I make sure I have been there every time.
A play with the provocative title Cock is going to raise eyebrows (especially with the marquee outside the Duke on 42nd Street says it). The provided plot description makes it even more appealing: “When John and his boyfriend take a break, the last thing he expects is to suddenly meet the woman of his dreams. Now he has a big choice to make.”
While the titular sisters of Anton Chekhov’s play Three Sisters aren’t particularly humorous, the cast of the current production by The Seeing Place at the Sargent Theater does a remarkable job of playing up the humor in even the play’s most tragic elements.
