SALT LAKE CITY — A Salt Lake Acting Company tradition for over 35 years, Allen Nevins and Nancy Borgenicht‘s Saturday’s Voyeur is a Salt Lake staple when it comes to summertime theatre. Voyeur parodies the Mormon cult-classic musical and now movie Saturday’s Warrior. Taking directly from modern-day cultural references, this year’s production focused on the plight of a young man named Ned who, with the help of a special sacred garment, thinks he is invisible. Everyone can still see him, including his lesbian mothers and gay fathers. Yes, he has two dads and two moms. After a troubling day at school,...Read More

SALT LAKE CITY — A brilliant script by Martin McDonagh, coupled with excellent direction by Tiffany A.

WEST VALLEY CITY — Everyone loves an origin story. However, I have to admit, I am getting a little tired of seeing Batman’s parents getting killed outside of a theatre over and over again, a radioactive spider biting Peter Parker’s hand, or baby Superman slamming into the Kansas prairie. As much as I’m getting a little worn out of origin stories, the Tony award-winning Peter and the Starcatcher is this type of origin story: how did Peter Pan become Peter Pan? How did the Lost Boys arrive on the island? Who is Captain Hook and how did he lose his hand? Questions like...Read More
SALT LAKE CITY — I’ve seen several Utah Repertory Theatre Company shows. This theatre company has the incredible knack to find local and well-rounded talent to present its audience with a professional evening of theatre. So I was looking forward to see their production of A Little Night Music, a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler. A Little Night Music follows the lives of touring theatre actress Desiree Armfeldt and her once-lover, Fredrik Egerman. Years pass and Egerman takes Anne, his current wife, to a performance of Desiree’s. Following the evening of theatre, Egerman confronts...Read More
At the end of every year at UTBA we collect our members’ thoughts on the excellent shows they have seen that year. And for the fifth year in a row, it is clear that the Utah theatre scene is vibrant, with entertainment options available for patrons of all types. Below are the shows that stick out in our reviewers minds as 2015 draws to a close. Excellent Professional (Equity) Productions Who would have thought that a farce written in the 1890’s would still be belly-aching funny 120 years later? The Utah Shakespeare Festival’s take on Charley’s Aunt was phenomenal all around:...Read More
