Stephen King


Misery- A Misery Worth Laughing At

Tacoma Little Theatre’s production of Misery is based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. Misery is about a famous romance novel writer who is taken hostage by his number one fan after he crashes his car in a snow storm. His legs are immobile and he relies on her to give him pain medication, food, and water. However, when she finds out that he has killed off her favorite character in his book series, she forces him to rewrite it at any cost. 


Shawshank Redemption-Hope Springs Eternal

Hope is a Good thing, maybe the Best Thing and No Good Thing ever Dies.

Like the film Schindler’s List, Tacoma Little Theatre’s production of The Shawshank Redemption portrayed humanity at its worst and at its best. Also, I had the same feeling upon leaving TLT, as I did upon viewing Schindler’s List; that I had gone through a profound, emotional and morally uplifting experience. On a less personal level, the production may not have had Steven Spielberg nor Hollywood big-bucks, but its quality was on a par with anything I have ever seen on Broadway or the West End. It was a tribute to director Blake R. York and Tacoma Little Theatre.
