Summer Youth Theater’s production of ‘Macbeth’ not about the curse | LJWorld.com

Doug Weaver isn’t superstitious. At least not about theater.

“I’m intensely superstitious when it comes to my golf game,” he says. “But not when it comes to theater.”

So the prospect of directing the most legendarily cursed play of all time — William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” — didn’t daunt him. In fact, he was looking forward to it.

Reflective of community, ‘Ragtime’ opens new Theatre Lawrence building | LJWorld.com

Reflective of community, ‘Ragtime’ opens new Theatre Lawrence building | LJWorld.com | OffStage | Scoop.it

Say you have a brand new, state-of-the-art theater. What’s the perfect show to open with?

It should be something big. Something that takes advantage of the space, involves as many people as possible and is absolutely electrifying. What do you choose? “Phantom of the Opera”? “Les Misérables”? “The King and I”?

Theatre Lawrence went a different route. Rather than a famous, all-time favorite, they selected “Ragtime,” the musical story of America at the turn of the 20th century.

IN REVIEW: A violinist, a chorus, a symphony and the “Goldbergs” offer delights | KC Independent | OffStage | Scoop.it

Elena Urioste and Gabriela Martinez effect a fine collaboration, playing with a unified and intuitive feel for each other’s musical outlook and direction. At the duo’s violin-piano recital on June 7th, part of the Harriman-Jewell’s Discovery Series, one was aware at times that the sharp sophistication of Elena’s violin artistry was not always matched by Gabriela’s somewhat less compelling pianism.
