Romeo & Juliet at TPAC

Romeo & Juliet should not be a difficult play to present…but it is. Remarkably difficult. It is not that the plot is too convoluted; Hamlet, in its original form, is much more confusing. It is not that the language is an insurmountable barrier; Henry V is richer in the lofty phrases of Elizabethan English. It is not even that it is a tragedy of mythological proportions; MacBeth does a better job of exploring the tragic flaws that drive men and…

Left Behind Review by Ted Baehr

LEFT BEHIND, The Movie ©2000 Dr. Ted Baehr LEFT BEHIND is the best movie made so far in the apocalyptic genre and has been crafted with a very careful, deft touch. It involves the audience in the storyline of the people. Kirk Cameron’s vulnerability, though unlike the Buck of the book, makes the movie much more compelling. He is an everyman caught in circumstances beyond his control. The characters are well drawn. LEFT BEHIND presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ…

“Death, be not proud, though some have callèd thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;” John Donne Wit, on the surface, is a straight-forward play about one woman’s battle with cancer – insidious advanced metastatic ovarian cancer, to be exact. It is a tragi-comedy of sorts. As the lead character, Vivian Bearing, Ph.D. (Tandy Cronyn), informs the audience during her first monologue, “I think I die in the end.” For the next 90+ intermissionless minutes the audience is…

As You Like It: Shakespeare In The Park

A man of the world who, notoriously or not, was one of the translators of the Bible for King James is the subject here. In most of his plays that have transcended the ages almost as well as Bible literature, he uses scripture passages very often biblical themes, and varying degrees of Christian characters. William Shakespeare knew Scripture well enough to finesse it into his playwriting. He had a grand sweeping view relating wide experiences of life. His sonnets reveal…
