EMOTIONAL CREATURE Review: PerformInk Kansas City

EMOTIONAL CREATURE Review: PerformInk Kansas City

To be completely honest, this production was an experience that I am so glad I decided to share with my daughter. We spent the ride home discussing which of the pieces resonated the most with each of us and why. It was a beautiful experience, and one that I encourage all of you to share.

#22: SPINNING TREE THEATRE KEEPS INTRODUCING US TO OUR FUTURE FAVES

Kansas City has a burgeoning theater scene with a deep pool of talent from which to draw. But you might not get that impression by scanning the cast lists at a few local companies. Directors (and artistic directors) have a merry-go-round of favorites, and sometimes, it can seem daunting for newcomers to hop on board. Not so at Spinning Tree Theatre. The seven-year-old company has …

DADDY LONG LEGS “This season’s must-see show!”

DADDY LONG LEGS “This season’s must-see show!”

“Samantha McHenry stars as Jerusha Abbott. Actors are seldom as perfect for a role as McHenry is for this one. She inhabits Jerusha like we all inhabit our favorite article of clothing. She wears her comfortably, believably, and is so genuine in her approach it’s as if the role was written with her in mind. McHenry checks through the emotional highs and lows of this character so convincingly she has the audience on the edge of their seats. McHenry’s brilliant performance is…quite special.”

THE NANCE (November 2-18). Kansas City premiere! New York City’s Mayor LaGuardia wants to clean up the city before the 1937 World’s Fair, and his biggest target is burlesque. A “nance” was burlesque’s stereotypically camp character and master of comic double entendre, almost always played by a straight man (so to speak). What happens when our nance is gay…and has fallen in love?

Directed by Michael Grayman-Parkhurst and Nicole Marie Green

Starring Andy Perkins, Katie Gilchrist, Timothy Michael Houston, Ashley Personett, R. …
