Patrick Fitzwater

When South Florida's theater critics attended Slow Burn Theatre's Next to Normal in October, most of them had seen the same show a year and a half earlier at Actors' Playhouse in Coral Gables, in a production that was nominated for some of the highest honors in the community. But...

Carrie: The Musical: Scares Are Few and Far Between, but the Message Resonates

7 years ago by John Thomason
In 1974, decades before bullying became a national cause du jour, Stephen King created the issue's avenging spokesperson: Carrie, the sheltered, ungainly high schooler who begins menstruation at the wrong place and wrong time, is tormented by her classmates, learns how to move things with her mind, and, when humiliated...

Next to Normal: A Rock Opera About Mental Illness — and It's Awesome

The Wise Kids


The Perfect Family

Comedy, Drama
There's a vague echo of John Waters's film Serial Mom in director Anne Renton's The Perfect Family. But where Waters's satiric look at the lengths to which a mom would go to maintain the illusion (if not delusion) of her idealized family struck the balance between vinegar and lemonade, Renton's competing tones and intentions result in a film at...
