TV Eye

Critics say programs like Providence and Normal, Ohio play on the adult desire to recapture a happier time. But it's shows like The West Wing and Gideon's Crossing that really fill us with nostalgia.

Back Bog Beast Bait

While its Sixties-era script gives Sam Shepard's early, kooky drama Back Bog Beast Bait a hallucinogenic clunkiness, the look and feel of the Tongue and Groove Theatre production is impressively atmospheric and its company of performers have a terrific time.

Death of a Salesman

On a Mary Moody Northen Theatre stage painted with splashy autumn colors evoking fallen leaves, Melba Martinez and Michael Massey, co-directors/designers of this production of Death of a Salesman, take their audience on a trip through the dying world of Willy Loman, and a powerful trip it is.

Gut Girls

The title characters in Sarah Daniels' play Gut Girls are brash, foul-mouthed, beer-swilling cockneys, carving their lots from life at the slaughterhouse, and the UT Department of Theatre & Dance production's colorful design work, solid direction, and vivid performances put us inside their greasy, tough world.
