BTC production resurrects the past

If you had walked into Spingold Theater Center's Laurie Theater this weekend, your first thought would have been "Toto, we're not in Waltham anymore!" The Brandeis Theater Company successfully created a time capsule of drama this weekend with its production of A View from the Bridge, directed by Michael Hammond, who is a visiting professor of acting from the Boston University School of Theatre. Written by Arthur Miller in 1955, the play covers a range of controversial topics, such as homophobia, immigration and gender roles.

The Color Purple' production portrays struggle

The tragic and touching story of The Color Purple took its time reaching the stage. Originally written as a novel by Alice Walker in 1982, it was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1983, and Stephen Spielberg first produced a film adaptation of the story in 1985.
