Nothing Average About Measure For Measure’s Next To Normal

A new theater debuting by choosing a complex musical about mental illness, and in the small confines of the 50 or so seat theater? Now that takes confidence.

Outre’s The Violet Hour Is A Daring, Flawed Modern Medea

Sometimes the daring efforts of Outré Theatre Company work beautifully such as Back of the Throat, An Illiad and Thrill Me, sometimes not so well such as Bed and Sofa, and Othello. Often, it’s both as with the current world premiere of The Violet Hour, A Modern Medea.

Glorious Voices Outweigh Unsubtle Script In ‘The Journey’

The scruffy damaged denizens of New Orleans’ underclass depicted in the musical The Journey: The Story of Your Life really only have one dimension and the subtlety of a freight train, but, good God, the power that this cast and creative team from Outré Theatre Company invest in that one dimension is overwhelming.
