New #utahtheatre review from @Theatre_Critics member @MarenSwensen for @ZiegfeldTheater's A FAIRLY POTTER #CHRISTMAS CAROL, which borrows from the greats (including Dickens and Dr. Seuss) to create the company's first #COVID19 era show.
Imagination and creativity matter. Whatever your age.

The 3rd streaming #utahtheatre production from @BYUarts, AN IDEAL HUSBAND, was plagued by technical glitches and a poorly conceived script modernization. Read UTBA member Sara Claverie's review to learn more. #BYU
New #utahtheatre review by UTBA president (and @Theatre_Critics member) @Russwarne for @SCERAupdate's A CHRISTMAS STORY: THE MUSICAL, a show that can't escape the shadow of its source material.
It's #intermission now. Theater is at about 15-20% capacity, making social distancing easy. #utahtheatre #covid19
I'm at @SCERAupdate to review A CHRISTMAS STORY: THE MUSICAL for @UtahTheatreBlog. Look for the review later! #utahtheatre
The #COVID19 pandemic has forced @HCTO to make changes to their annual version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Our president (and @Theatre_Critics member) @Russwarne sees these as improvements that strengthen this crowd pleasing #Christmas show. #utahtheatre
