PROVO — Last year I was scheduled to see a Grassroots Shakespeare Company’s play and it was raining. Because their shows are performed outside, I wimped out and decided not to attend. It turned out that the rain stopped, the show went on, and I missed out. Boy, did I ever miss out. Had I gone then I would have found out much sooner that this group of players is amazing, and I would have never missed another one of their plays. UTBA was invited to a private performance of Hamlet that was being put on for the supporters of...Read More

SPRINGVILLE — The Little Brown Theater’s latest play is On Golden Pond, directed by the theater’s owner Bill Brown and co-directed by Cara Baker. Brown also plays the lead, Norman Thayer, Jr. The first thing you notice as you walk into the Little Brown is that it is a black box with three-sided seating. I personally like these types of theaters as they have some nice advantages. First, the performers don’t need mics. Second, the audience seems to develop a camaraderie, an intimacy. It’s almost as if the audience is part of the play. The set design for On...Read More
MIDVALE — I am a certified Camelot geek. My mother called me Guinevere all the time when I was growing up because “Guinevere” is the Welsh version of my name, Jennifer. At least once a week my mother had us listen to Lerner and Lowe’s Broadway version of the show with Julie Andrews as Guinevere, Richard Burton as King Arthur, and Robert Goulet as the valiant and ultimately adulterous Lancelot. As a girl, I wanted to be Julie Andrews. As an adult, I still do. So, I approached Salty Dinner Theater’s King Arthur and Lancelot—For the Love of Guinevere...Read More
SALT LAKE CITY — My husband, son, and I had the pleasure of seeing Educating Rita presented by the Pinnacle Acting Company in Midvale on Saturday night. This isn’t the first Pinnacle production I’ve reviewed. I sincerely believe it won’t be the last. I love their work. It’s almost a no-brainer to review these shows. I am tempted to just write two things: (1) This show is great. (2) Go see it. If I did that, I would be done with this review. But I really do want to tell you why you should go see this show. The...Read More
PROVO — I’ve been reviewing for UTBA for over a year now. In that time, I’ve seen some good shows. I’ve seen some great shows. I’ve seen a few perfect shows. Tonight’s performance was one of those perfect ones. Or nearly as perfect as it can get. Let me describe the space first. The Covey Center for the Arts used to be Provo Library, which incidentally is where I met my husband, so was it just so cute that my husband and I went to a show called Blind Date in the building where we met? And here we are...Read More

“It isn’t everyday that a new play makes you really consider some heavy and heady questions. It is rarer when questions are posed without an agenda. For us...those answers are entirely up for grabs.” #UtahTheatre review for @pioneertheatre’s /i/: https://t.co/ox9OTga0KS
I saw 4 productions of ROMEO & JULIET in 7 months. Here's what I learned. #Shakespeare @UtahTheatreBlog #utahtheatre
It unlocks something hidden and innocent within the performers and audience.

“As a reviewer, it is my distinct task to say what I think of plays and productions, but all I can give this one is a resounding, “I don’t know. You’ll have to decide for yourself.” New #UtahTheatre review for @slactingco’s HIR: https://t.co/CbHBlPbxKc

“CRAZY FOR YOU might not be worth the drive from Provo, but if you’re in Davis County, it’s worth the price. Take the kiddies and get them started on the music that makes America great.” NEW #UtahTheatre review for @Hopeboxtheatre: https://t.co/AU3VHMxmV1
"Gays, Mormons and ‘Angels in America’: The landmark play took more than 25 years to get to Provo, but now it’s here ... in a shopping mall" -Salt Lake Tribune
