Feline Fatale: The Lieutenant of Inishmore, reviewed.

Megan Dominy and Thomas Keegan in Constellation Theatre Company's proudction of Martin McDonagh's "The Lieutenant of Inishmore."

I reviewed Constellation Theatre Company‘s new production of Martin McDonagh‘s bloody 2001 farce The Lieutenant of Inishmore in today’s Washington City Paper. The fine Washington Post story I cite (by David Segal, not long after he’d handed off his gig as the paper’s pop music critic to my pal Josh du Lac) about the blood work in the play’s U.S. premiere back in 2006 is here.

You Gotta Move: Synetic’s A Trip to the Moon and A Commedia Christmas Carol, reviewed

Georges Méliès’ "A Trip to the Moon," 1902.

Georges Méliès’ “A Trip to the Moon,” 1902.

I was a big admirer of writer/director/illustrator Natsu Onoda Power‘s Astro Boy and the God of Comics at Studio Theatre earlier this year, and also of Martin Scorcese‘s 2011 film Hugo, which was in part about pioneering filmmaker Georges Méliès. So I was excited to see Power’s new stage adaptation of Méliès’ most famous film, A Trip to the Moon — which I found promising but underdeveloped.

I review it in today’s Washington City Paper, along with a Faction of Fools’ A Commedia Christmas Carol.
