BroadwayWorld: GOD OF CARNAGE

Keegan Theatre’s Feisty GOD OF CARNAGE A child injures another in a playground confrontation. The parents of each meet to discuss. It’s a parenting moment so universal that the familiar premise in Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage was originally written in French and first presented in London. It was a Tony-winner on Broadway a decade ago

BroadwayWorld: HANDS ON A HARDBODY

What is the American dream? Some would say two kids, a house with a white picket fence, and a dog. In the musical Hands on a Hardbody, with book by Doug Wright and music by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green paired with lyrics by Green, the American Dream is a “hardbody” or a little red pickup truck at the center of an

BroadwayWorld: AN IRISH CAROL

It’s not exactly clear what fluids sustained the original Ebenezer Scrooge on his late-night tour, but Dublin native Matthew J. Keenan is pretty darned sure what would fuel the old cuss in Ireland today. The beers and the Jamesons flow like water in his seasonal offering, An Irish Carol, a hardened, touching, hilarious tour of a
