Happy holidays, folks! Around this time of year, no one is sure what day of the week it is and as such we have decided to write an extended Yuletide Roundup for you all. We’ve got the low-down on what is up this weekend, right through to New Year’s Eve.
BFFs: “From the first meeting, to the first date, to their first kiss, the audience can see for themselves if things were set to fail from the beginning or if their divorice was all a big mistake.”
“For the last week we have been talking non-stop about how excited we were to get to see this show on stage and couldn’t wait for opening night.”
Barb Popel: “Plosive Production’s The Ugly One is a fine start to The Gladstone’s theatre season. It has an interesting script, an excellent cast, and good direction.”

So grab your ticket before the short run ends on Saturday!

Brian Carroll: “King Lear is often looked on as a bravura vehicle for the lead actor. But don’t just keep your eyes on Howarth. There are other estimable performances in this production.”
