Review-
Flying H Group Theatre’s presentation of Karl Gajdusek’s FUBAR delivers another fun night of whacky, dark comedy.

Review: My Fair Lady at Rubicon

INTRO MFL
-Review-
The Musical, My Fair Lady is based on George Bernard Shaw’s highly successful play, Pygmalion. T. S. Elliot is rumored to have remarked upon seeing My Fair Lady that “Bernard Shaw is quite helped by the addition of music, isn’t he?” Rubicon’s current production proves the point.

Review: Acting Rules at Flying H and Elite

SER Poster title only
 
-Review-
Some scripts call for tremendously committed acting. These are the kind of scripts that great actors hunger for; but often aren't produced as they scare the daylights out of everyone else. John Pollono's Small Engine Repair, and Jim Brochu's Zero Hour are scripts that might be considered in that category. Both scripts are smartly written, with sweeping structures yet tightly focused, giving both the kind of range and focus that great actors like to exploit. Both plays take a certain level of significant courage and commitment from their actors. A level that lessor talents dare to attempt.

Review: Rubicon’s Copenhagen

croppedCOPENHAGEN 2
Review
 
Michael Frayn’s play, Copenhagen, is a rare treat for anyone who is remotely interested in finding intellectual stimulation in Ventura. There is great art and then there is important great art. Michael Frayn’s Copenhagen is the latter.

REVIEW: It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Living Room

MG 2
Review

Mad Gravity, the latest zany comedy presented by Flying H Theatre is set "in a strip mall home" [read modest mid-to lower-middle class suburban California home, aka Flying H's strip mall theatre] that has been altered in a certain manner not to be disclosed here. On opening night it played to a fully engaged, enthusiastic audience typical of the young, hip, and savvy audiences Flying H attracts.

Flying H Theatre Delivers Hilarious B-Movie Parody in “Women Behind Bars”
VENTURA – After a prodigious beginning--15 full-length plays in its first 20 months,
exploring some of the most provocative theatre of our times--Flying H Theatre jumps
off into a new direction with Tom Eyen’s Women Behind Bars. Eyen’s play is a loose,
full-steam-ahead comedy based on one the most quality-averse, tasteless, and overexploited
genres in world cinema: the women-in-prison B-flick.
A funny-enough concept in itself, but in the hands of Founder and Artistic Director
Taylor Kasch’s direction and a large, able cast, this production is hilarious.

Review: Other Desert Cities at the Rubicon

ODC13Review
Ventura, CA - For those locals who follow American theatre, it was great good news when the Rubicon announced it was going to produce Other Desert Cities this season.  This is a great play.
 
A fabulously funny, yet serious play.It was a sensation when it opened off-Broadway at the Lincoln Center Theatre and then later re-opened on Broadway in November 2011. And the Rubicon theatre company has delivered a top-notch, not-to-miss production that gives this play everything it deserves.
