Set in the French Antilles, this celebratory musical from the Tony Award-winning creators of Ragtime and Seussical combines elements of both Romeo and Juliet and The Little Mermaid. The result is an exhilarating, calypso-tinged story filled with infectious rhythms, rousing dance and exuberant theatricality. The Tony-nominated hit chronicles the fairy-tale love of a young peasant girl for a handsome young aristocrat -- a love that leads her to save him from death. As the gods debate the star-crossed lovers' fate, the islanders gather to sing and celebrate the hope of the human spirit. Olney's production is directed by Alan Muraoka, proprietor of Sesame Street's Hooper's Store since 1997. Learn More

This was my first time seeing a show at this venue and a production by this Baltimore-based theater company. Both delivered!
As for the venue, the Theater Project is a fantastic space (which I would never have known from the outside) located within walking distance to/from some of the City's best restaurants, coffee shops, and bars.
As for the show itself, Iron Crow packed a lot of drama and (dark) comedy into the play's approx. 70 min. running time. (A nice length, BTW). In that period, each of the cast members - who displayed nice chemistry amongst one another - managed to lovingly capture the myriad of emotions that one might feel when losing someone and, for me, drive home one of the important points of the play: one may truly never (ever) really know someone.
Incidentally, the play is not about the military so don't let the title fool you. And, while the emotional center of the play is (presumably) gay, the points of the play are universal ... and timeless.
I will definitely be back to the Theatre Project and I look forward to future productions of the Iron Crow.
Quotes & Highlights
“David’s dancing spirit refuses to die. That spirit rises up in the final imagery of Iron Crow Theatre’s production — imagery beautifully staged by director Steven J. Satta-Fleming and set to an original song by Michael Perrie. The Soldier Dreams may be about coping with loss and grief, but this poignant production leaves no doubt that it is also about celebrating life.” -WYPR
“…beautiful, sad, hilarious, heartwarming offering that Iron Crow Theatre doesn’t just produce but conquers.” -Broadwayworld.com
