Play On!
In the backstage comedy Anton in Show Business, playwright Jane Martin wittily paints the contemporary stage as a madhouse overrun by loons and lunatics so preoccupied with money, image, and themselves that they can hardly be bothered to create art. And the State Theater Company's production takes us inside the insanity with an air of playfulness that keeps the audience primed for a good time.
"...for the production is to throw out all of Chekhov's text. (The diva gets her booted, too.) Meanwhile, company..."

c/o the grove
In c / o the grove, director J. Ed Araiza has moved Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard to modern Central Texas, where pecans take the part of cherry trees and pop culture references abound, not always to the play's benefit, but the strong storytelling and focused performances of the young cast make this another success in big, collaborative, ensemble theatre for the St. Edward's University theatre department.
