The future is here.
2001:A Space Odyssey has to be one of the most ambitious productions ever. There’s nothing to hide behind in the stark white Tek Box, which gives a very Apple-flavored vision of the future, or, the iOdyssey.
Sound design doesn’t get mentioned very often and it should. Miriam Gerberg has created a soundscape of synthesized sounds mixed with traditional instruments and human voices that is really a character in its own right.
I have to first admit I’m not a fan of the movie- which is too long and dry for my taste. Fortunately live actors, movement, and acrobatics make all the difference.
Review of “LES MISERABLES presented by Bloomington Civic Theatre” posted by David Zarkin on October 31
The Bloomington Civic Theater’s production of “Les Miserables” is much like watching a classic painting come to life as actors in the ensemble react to the central characters. In a lecture on Wednesday, director Karen Weber said the the job of the ensemble was to act as well as sing.
The set was stark and revolved in the center so the stage was transformed before your eyes as action moved along without a hitch.

Hello, Dolly! good reason to come in from the cold
By Mindy Mateuszczyk
Hello, Dolly! is now performing at Lyric Arts Main Street Stage. It’s a delightful voyage into the classic musical theatre genre. Beth King, is a successful and endearing Dolly Gallagher Levi who moves the story ahead with wit, charm and solid acting.
Alyssa Wyatt, as Irene Malloy, delivers pitch perfect vocals. Her convincing rendition of “Ribbons Down My Back” is worth the price of admission alone.
