BROOKFIELD — A recent performance of ‘Night Mother, the current production by The Brookfield Theatre of the Arts, left the audience in tears. The highly charged Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Marsha Norman emanates the pain of depression and loneliness as it examines the depths of the fundamentally fraught mother-daughter bond.
While this is a play about the trauma of depression and its treatment by suicide, it is not without humor, love and compassion. Mostly, it is about connection as essential to fulfillment.

BROOKFIELD — The Brookfield Theatre of the Arts production of Godspell rocks, literally. This performance of an updated version of the original, which was conceived and directed by John Michael Tebelar, with music and lyrics by Steven Schwartz, has been blessed with an incredibly energetic and talented cast which is being imaginatively directed by Mensah Robinson, making his directorial debut with this vibrant creation.

BROOKFIELD — I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, by Joe Dipietro and Jimmy Roberts, ran for over 5,000 performances off Broadway, making it the second longest running show there ever. After seeing the version currently on stage at The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts, I could only wish that they could keep it going at least until New Year’s. It is that good a production, of a hilarious, rollicking, ultimately touching examination of human relationships.
