By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Mar 1, 2015 – In 1965, America was newly awash in a painful harsh reality of a divided disillusioned country.

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Feb 26, 2015- We want theater troupes to take chances, bend rules, push boundaries.

But MTC has missed the target so badly in its misbegotten revival of the 1952 sex comedy The Seven Year Itch that you only thing […]
