Review: ‘King Kirby’ at Greenbelt Arts Center

Print Friendly, PDF  Email

Who could guess that a play about the life of the renowned comic book artist, Jack Kirby (August 28, 1917 – February 6, 1994), would be filled with so much humor, pathos and fact-dropping narrative? The play, written by comic book artist Fred Van Lente and playwright Crystal Skillman, is so new, its Kickstarter page is still up. With stunningly real performances and clever direction by Keith Cassidy, King Kirby is top shelf stage art about the world of comics. Kapow!

Kirby was a “tough jew” from the Lower East Side, a place that was a “farm team for the mafia,” a place that forced him to fight in the streets against tough Irish kids. Kirby, driven by his

Review: ‘King John’ at 4615 Theatre Company

Print Friendly

Scandals, sibling rivalry, adultery and divorces represented daily living for England’s royal Plantagenet family, which held the dynastic reigns of power from approximately 1120 to 1490. The Plantagenets provided enough drama for two playwrights: William Shakespeare, who wrote The Life and Death of King John, and James Goldman who wrote The Lion in Winter. Under the marketing banner “One Family, Two Playwrights”, 4615 Theatre Company is playing both shows in repertory with Jordan Friend as director. The focus of this review, King John, is a potpourri of pumping rock music, rollicking rumbles, dazzling light schemes, and potent performances.

Review: ‘Murder on the Nile’ at Greenbelt Arts Center

Imagine this scene. You’re on a paddle steamer on the Nile River in Egypt. It’s the mid-60s. You find yourself surrounded by an off-kilter cast of characters: Miss Ffoliot-ffoulkes on holiday with her niece Christina Grant; a communist-leaning British lord named Smith, with the hots for Christina; a fez-wearing steward; a French maid named Louise; an old physician, Dr. Bessner; a rich girl Kay Mostyn and her new husband, Simon Mostyn; Jacqueline de Severac, friend of Kay and ex-lover of Simon; and a pious and slightly creepy parson, Canon Pennefather. Mix in an ill feeling that something sinister is bound to happen and you have the crux of Thunderous Productions’ Murder on the Nile. As directed by Rick Starkweather, Murder on the Nile is a mind-bending mental workout, a delectable evening of detective work on stage.

Review: ‘Rebollar and Friends: 40 and Up!’ – Last Chance to RebollarDance at Joe’s Movement Emporium is TODAY, 6 …

We’ve all heard the cliches about aging: Life begins at 40. You are not getting older, you are getting better. Age is just a number. Once a man, twice a child. The inspiring dance repertoire Rebollar and Friends: 40 and Up!, curated by Artist/Organizer and choreographer Erica Rebollar, shattered those cliches into dust. Featuring 10 delightful dance works, created by ten internationally known choreographers over the age of 40, Rebollar and Friends: 40 and Up! is part performance art, part inner-mind emotional release and all body-shaking shindig.

Rebollar, who founded Rebollar Dance in 2003, has won a 2013 Dance Metro DC Award for “Excellence in Choreography” and a Pola Nirenska Award for “Outstanding Contributions to Dance.” Rebollar not only brought her “40 and Up” friends to the stage, but also performed herself.
