Sure, war is hell, but when author Kurt Vonnegut is telling the tale, it can be hellishly funny, too. Perhaps the greatest American humorist since Twain, Vonnegut (Cat's Cradle, Breakfast of Champions) is at his absolutely best in Slaughterhouse-Five, recounting the horrors of World War II with sly wit, sci-fi zaniness and the profound insight of a survivor and veteran. Now the Custom Made Theatre Co. brings this modern literary masterpiece to the stage with a brilliant adaptation by Oscar winner Eric Simonson. An ensemble of 11 actors plays dozens of characters in a production enriched with Vonnegut-inspired animations and an evocative set. Deeply hilarious from the get-go -- and increasingly moving as the story progresses -- Slaughterhouse-Five is one play you won't soon forget. Learn More

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds was a very powerful drama. At times the cruelty of Beatrice was almost too difficult to watch, but Michelle Jasso was fascinating in her portrayal. I thought Julia Belanoff was wonderful as Tillie. That child has so much talent. I want to also mention the performance of Aj Davenport. Although hers was not a speaking role, she was able to convey strong emotions in her facial expressions. That is quite a feat.
