SALT LAKE CITY — I and You is a play written by Lauren Gunderson, who is one of the most produced living playwrights in the United States. The plot follows two characters, Caroline (played by Cora Fossen), a teenager forced to stay at home with a life threatening health condition, and Anthony (played by Tristan Johnson), a young basketball player and student needing help with a project who comes to Caroline. As the story unfolds, the audience learns that things for these two characters are definitely not as they seem. When a production only has two players, it can be...Read More
NEW YORK CITY — Year Three of BroadwayCon, founded by Broadway actor Anthony Rapp, was unique for Utah Theatre Bloggers Association because I had the exciting opportunity to moderate a panel with three other Utah natives, Megan Guiterrez, Johnny Hebda, and Holly Harmon, about the wonder things we do in Utah to build out theatrical community. The main convention was held from January 26-28 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, and new this year on Thursday the 25th was the first ever BroadwayCon Industry Day, where panelists were gathered to speak to people who work or desire to work within the theatrical...Read More
With the end of the year upon us, it’s time for one of our favorite annual traditions: the UTBA post about excellence on the Utah stage in the past year!

There are plenty of excellent productions that do not appear on this list, and most reviewers were forced to limit the number of plays they talked about. Excellent professional (Equity) productions Some day, Newsies might replace Joseph… as Utah’s favorite musical. The...Read More
OGDEN — A Ziegfeld Theater holiday tradition has returned: A Fairly Potter Christmas Carol. Written by Rick Rea, this show is a parody of all things Harry Potter and all things Christmas. Rea has taken the idea behind the stories of everyone’s favorite wizard boy, combined them with everyone’s favorite gift-giving jolly man, and thrown in a bit of Dickens and Dr. Seuss for good measure. Fairly Potter has been slightly altered since the first version I saw a few years ago, and many of the changes were quite beneficial to the overall humor and plot. This is parody at...Read More
CENTERVILLE — One of my favorite Christmas memories is watching an old television movie adaptation of Barbara Robinson‘s book The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. When I learned that CenterPoint Legacy Theatre was producing a stage production, I jumped at the chance to review it. This production is directed by Wendy Inkley and shown on the Leishman black box stage. The classic story is about the awful Herdman family—a group of rude and rough kids that the entire villages hates—and the crazy things that happen when they decide to join the town Christmas pageant. The first thing I noticed is that...Read More

I have a lot (like, A LOT) of feelings about @SackersonCo's 'Hindsight'.
