THEATER REVIEW: Moonlight's “Little Women: The Musical” is endearing

“Well-behaved women seldom make history.” - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, 1991

Jo March (Hilary Maiberger) may not have made history – but she wanted to, and was definitely not well-behaved, especially not for her time (immediately post-Civil War).

Jo, by far the most appealing character in Louisa May Alcott’s classic “Little Women,” dresses like a tomboy, writes “blood and guts” stories, dreams of world travel and making her mark in the literary world. Marriage and family are not on her radar.

VIDEO: GLAAD's What To Watch on Thursday

(This post was originally published at GLAAD Blog.)

Earth-shattering secrets are revealed on "Days Of Our Lives," the Florida team on "The Office" prepares for the new Sabre store opening, Pharrell Williams guest stars on "Project Runway All Stars," Chris and Ami confront each other on "NY Ink" and tensions threaten the shop and Archer may be in real danger after his sexcapades interfere with an assignment.

THEATER REVIEW: “God’s Trombones: Seven Negro Sermons In Verse” is quite uplifting

I don’t know whether God has any trombones, or for that matter whether there is a God, but James Weldon Johnson used the term to describe the fire-and-brimstone preaching style of black pastors.

Now Johnson’s slim 1927 volume “God’s Trombones: Seven Negro Sermons In Verse” has been adapted into a sort of gospel review for the stage by Calvin Manson of the Ira Aldridge Repertory Players, playing through March 11 at the Educational Cultural Complex.

THEATER REVIEW: “The Car Plays: San Diego” is theater up-close and personal

You’ve heard of in-your-face theater, the sort written by Sarah Kane.

Now La Jolla Playhouse offers the extreme version: in-the-car theater, where the actors are inches from the audience’s nose.

“The Car Plays: San Diego” is a series of short plays (10 minutes each) presented in, well, in cars. This is the second in the Playhouse’s “Without Walls” series funded by a grant from the James Irvine Foundation.

THEATER REVIEW: "June Moon" offers rare glimpse of theater history

Fred Stevens (Jack Mikesell), clerk at General Electric in Schenectady, hops a train to New York in search of fame and fortune as a writer of song lyrics, meets cute on the train and gets briefly derailed by a brazen New York woman in Ring Lardner and George S. Kaufman’s 1929 comedy “June Moon.”

This sendup of Tin Pan Alley (adapted from Lardner’s short story “Some Like Them Cold”) has been judiciously shortened and updated a bit for its run through March 3 at the Mandell Weiss Forum, under the auspices of UCSD’s Theatre and Dance Department.
