This was my first time watching Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie performed on stage.  Like many people I studied this play in high school and read through the entire text, so I had a good idea of what to expect. Yet somehow after watching the production at International City Theatre, it really felt like I was being introduced to this material for the first time. It’s weird to have this story in your head that you’ve known for years, and then have your preconceived notions about it totally change when you watch it play out on stage.  ICT’s version of this famous play is a solid, straight forward take on one of the richest stories, plays or narratives written in the 20th century.

Adapted from Daniel Wallace’s novel and Tim Burton’s acclaimed film, and featuring spine-tinglingly beautiful music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa (The Addams Family and The Wild Party), Big Fish is a fantastical musical that illustrates the larger-than-life anecdotes of Edward Bloom, a man nearing the end of his life. This fact has compelled his grown son Will to embark on an adventure of his own — to unravel his real dad from the myths of his tall tales. Filled with magic, love, luck, and crazy coincidences, this rollicking fantasy set in the American South is a tribute to the power of dreaming big. Taken from the website.

THE STUDY takes place during a psychological clinical test of the flight-or-fight response set in a college lecture hall. The audience’s reactions and answers determine the outcome of each performance; in this immersive, audience-interactive, video game and theatre-inspired piece. Created by Jared Tyrel Pixler and David Evan Stolworthy, the creators of THE VIDEO GAMES, which ran for nearly three years. THE STUDY has a cast of eleven characters, many of which are from the worlds of the creator’s premiere plays; Let Me Out and Roommates. No show will be like the last in this scripted, choose-your-own adventure style play. Taken from the website.

The City of Happymont is your typical small but growing city, and while the Happymont City Council tries to keep order and get business done, the Public, or at least those who participate in Public Comment, takes up the Council’s time with Conspiracy theories, rants, and musical numbers. The council tries to get rid of Public Comment but the Public won’t give it up without a fight. It all boils down to one man who has never spoken before giving the speech of his life and saving Public Comment. Taken from the website.

Insight
This brilliant show gives us a unique insight into the torment and courage of accepting and overcoming Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It opens up this human condition with grace, humor and candor. Many people hide in the shadows but Jessica puts it in the spotlight.
