  • Theater Review: Nuanced, Soulful Performances The Focus Of Current TheaterWorks Production

    NEW MILFORD — TheaterWorks New Milford’s main stage production of Time Stands Still is a subtle, moving piece of drama that gives pause as it explores the monumental challenges faced, collateral damage inflicted, and price paid by those who are witness to trauma. This is accomplished with humor, tenderness and urgency.

    Staged on a phenomenal apartment set, designed by Steve Wyshynski and Richard Pettibone, the souls of the characters created by David Margulies are laid bare and the nomadic nature of their lives revealed.

  • Theater Review: Restaging Of ‘Souvenir’ Is Perfection In New Milford

    NEW MILFORD — TheatreWorks New Milford’s production of Souvenir is awesome. A night at the theatre I will not soon forget. Written by Stephen Temperley, this comedy with music is immensely entertaining while covering all of the emotional bases.

    This production was originally performed at Westport Community Theatre. Under a new director, Sonnie Osborne, the play is being restaged at TheatreWorks. This was an excellent move.

  • Top of The Mountain

    Photo bombs continue to be a very popular trend, and this week I spotted one of my own doing just that. When one of our Bee photographers was out collecting Bee’s Buck photos last week, she didn’t realize that while she was trying to sneakily take a photo for this week’s challenge photo, the photographer herself was also being watched.
