The Seagull, by Anton Chekhov
Pushing Chekhov's Boundaries
Saturday, September 10, 2005
PushPush Theater is, truth be told, hit or miss. You never know, stepping through the front door, whether you'll stumble across brilliance or a complete misfire. No worries this round, though, as Anton Chekhov's The Seagull comes alive under the direction of Tim Habeger and the acting talents of Carol Mitchell-Leon, Sahr Ngaujah, Brenda Moorer, Liz McGeever, Shelby Hofer, Daniel Pettrow, Randy Havens and Matt Stanton. Highly recommended for those who want to see an updated Chekhov done right.

Dad's Garage Comedy Improv 2000-2001, by Dad's Garage Players
great improv by the same old faces
Saturday, July 14, 2001
TheatreSports is always good for a laugh, with seasoned performers mixing with newbies in an environment that draws the laughs out one after the other.
This thursday night show at dad's is and always will be a crowd pleaser, i guess, because it has to be current and immediate and because of the sheer amount of talent onstage at any given time.
My one problem with the Thursday night show is that it should be both a place for the seasoned improvisor to stay on their toes and ahead of their game, but also a place where new improvisors can learn their craft in front of an audience. It seems like even though there are nonensemble improvisors that perform on Thursdays, that it is the same faces, week after week. Dad's Garage should take this platform and give the newbies a chance to cut their teeth with some true professionals like Matt Stanton, George Faughnan and Z Gillespie. After all, the future lies with those who come after us, and Dad's has never been known as a theatre that doesn't give the new kids on the block props. Dad's is the best Improv in Atlanta, yes, but should always strive to be better.

Stella Goes to Hell, by Ian L. Fuller

Overlong and pointless.

Action Movie II: Episode One, by Daniel May
Action Movie satisfies...ya dig?
Saturday, June 23, 2001
Action Movie is filled with so many cliches that it borders on the absurd...wait...borders? No, it is completely absurd, with actors gleefully overplaying their roles. The fight scenes are incredibly overelaborate, with characters literally leaping over one another, and, in one truly hysterical moment--playing rock, paper, scissors. Finally, an Atlanta play that knows how to have a good time.
