Anatomical art

Pollard Theatre Company’s rendition of The Vagina Monologues hits all the right pleasure centers.


Performing Arts

Larry Laneer
For this 1999 piece, Ensler interviewed many women of various backgrounds and ages, and their stories are the sources for the monologues. Their experiences range from hopeful to harrowing. Many of the women appear surprised that anyone takes interest in their stories.

New Ado

City Rep places Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing in frontier Oklahoma.


Performing Arts

Larry Laneer
Oklahoma City Repertory Theatre’s Much Ado About Nothing, now at the Freede Little Theatre, is one of the most neatly acted and clearly presented productions of a Shakespeare play seen around here in a long time. It’s also a comedy that is practically devoid of humor.

Acting out

The top theatrical production of 2013 doesn’t favor glitz or pomp, but substance.


Features

Larry Laneer
A theater company that was founded to stage musicals produced the best play in 2013, and a theater company that focuses on plays gave us the best musical. Go figure.
