Theater Review: Pygmalion Theatre Co.'s "Tigers Be Still"

Dramedy proves better at finding laughs than seriousness in emotionally wounded people
We might have reached an awkward but necessary cultural moment in terms of the representation of mental illness in art: It's clear that certain notions that were acceptable in the past just won't play any more, but it's far less clear what is acceptable. When can we be invited to laugh at symptoms of depression?

Theater Review: Plan-B Theatre Company's "Good Standing"

Over the course of 75 minutes in Plan-B Theatre Company's world premiere of Matthew Greene's Good Standing, only one actor ever occupies the stage.  It's the fact that this one actor takes on so many voices, with such complexity, that makes Good Standing one of the most devastating pieces of original theater to grace an SLC stage in years. Austin Archer is the actor, and he initially appears as Curt Brown, a member of the LDS church who has been called before a disciplinary "Court of Love" for possible punishment—including excommunication—after marrying a man. At first, it seems that this might be a monologue, as Curt faces the 12 men who will judge and/or defend him.

Theater Review: Salt Lake Acting Company's "A Funny Thing Happened ..."

The title of Halley Feiffer’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unity at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City certainly is a mouthful, but it’s also kind of fitting for a play that packs a lot into its 95 minute running time. At once a romantic comedy, a sex farce, a mother-daughter relationship drama and a study of grief and loss, it brings an acidic comic sensibility to potentially maudlin subject matter, and the combination manages to help both go down more smoothly.

Theater Review: Pioneer Theatre Company's 'Oslo'

A fact-based story explores the power of building trust between enemies.
Pioneer Theatre Company’s production of J.T. Rogers’ Oslo  (running through Sept. 29) begins with a seemingly innocuous bit of table-setting. Two Norwegian couples share drinks together circa 1993: Sociologist Terje Rød-Larsen (Jeff Talbott) and his diplomat wife, Mona Juul (Kate Middleton); and incoming Norwegian Foreign Affairs Minister Johan Jorgen Holst (Ian Bedford) and his wife Marianne (Susanna Florence).
