A Doll’s House Part 2, Sequel to Ibsen’s original

strong>Fifteen years after Nora Helmer walks out, she comes back

Written by Lucas Hnath , A Doll’s House Part 2, a sequel to Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 A Doll’s House, opened at Tacoma Little Theatre this past weekend. Nora Helmer, the heroine of the original, walks in through the same door, she walked out of 15 years before, at the end of Ibsen’s original play. Although it has a parallel theme to the original, Part 2 lacked the drama and suspense of the original.


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.


Significant Other, or, Better Yet, Significant Self

Tacoma Little Theatre Features Significant Other

Finding love is never an easy thing to do, but watching all your friends find love before you? It adds an extra level of difficulty, regardless of how happy you are for them. Significant Other acknowledges this struggle through Jordan, who is as excited to find love as anyone else yet is stuck going from engagement parties to bachelorettes to weddings. He cares for each of his friends deeply and showcases how happy he is for them, but he can’t help feeling sad for himself.


Rock of Ages-Really Rocks at Tacoma Little Theatre

Let the Good and Bad Times Roll

Rock of Ages, a “jukebox musical” which is to say a musical that features popular songs from the past, opened this past weekend with an enormous amount of youthful energy in a joint production by the University of Washington-Tacoma’s theatre department and Tacoma Little Theatre.
