DCMTA In the Moment: THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY

Iowa can seem such a mythical place. That crossed my mind as I took in the Keegan Theatre’s top-notch production of the bittersweet, mystical romance of The Bridges of Madison County. Sure, Bridges is sentimental in its outlook, but no more so than say the male-oriented movie Field of Dreams, also set in the cornfields of a mythical Iowa–a movie

BroadwayWorld: OTHER LIFE FORMS

Dating is rough. “Other Life Forms,” which premiered at the Keegan Theatre this week, opens with this reminder. The audience is witness to two very different internet dates: Ben and Molly in one restaurant, and Jeff and Leslie in another. … As one date settles into comfortable conversation and the other spirals wildly out of control,
