Noises Off: Austin Playhouse stages this chaotic, ridiculous backstage farce with precision and fun

Solid Cast Deserves More Than Stale Script of DESERT CITIES
"Rick Roemer is wonderful, loving, and charming, but he really comes alive in that aforementioned final act twist. And it is Babs George as Brooke's mother, Polly, who is the most memorable. George plays the stubborn, bigoted, and egocentric Polly to perfection. [Read more...]
