    A Holiday Show that’s more Naughty than Nice!

    Another great review for In Tandem Theatre’s “Holiday Hell: The Curse of Perry Williams”!

    “In the role of Granny (a Minnie Pearl lookalike complete with price tag dangling from her hideous-looking hat), Samantha Sostarich nearly steals the show. Her bawdy jokes get even bolder as the evening continues. For instance, she sings her own lyrics, “Granny’s Pants Are A-Comin’ on Down,” to the tune of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”” – Anne Siegel, ShepherdExpress.com

    “Holiday Hell” is a Hit!

    The first reviews are in and “Holiday Hell: The Curse of Perry Williams” is a hit!

    “A word has to be said about Sostarich who is rapidly building a reputation as one of the funniest female actors in town. She seems to be able to get into a depth of every character she plays and finds the funny bone just waiting to be tickled. Watching her play the dirty granny, the pleading newsboy and the sultry seductress of Benny is a treat worth an entire evening.” – Dave Begel, OnMilwaukee.com (You can read the full review here.)

    “Nothing in this show is sacred. Which, in this season of saccharine and sugar plums, can be exhilarating. An equal opportunity offender, “Holiday Hell” deconstructs all the hype, freeing one to actually think for oneself about the reason for the season.” – Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel (You can read the full review here.)

    Victory for Victoria – From the Critics…

    From the Critics…

    “’Victoria’ brings into the light — and makes one want to know more about — an intriguing historical figure who deserves far more attention than she gets.”
    -Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

    “Three of Milwaukee’s best and most interesting young women actors were in the cast. Allie Babich, Katy Johnson and the splendid Samantha Sostarich all commanded the stage…Alissa Rhode’s music was played on piano, cello and violin, and provided a smooth and sensitive backdrop for the songs…and Joel Kopischke once again proves that when you need someone to sing and dance and play a sleazy dissolute old man, he is the guy to call. His voice is wonderful, and his manner and appearance make you want to dig into your pocket to give him bus fare to the nearest rehabilitation center.”
    -Dave Begel, onmilwaukee.com

    A quick look at Victory for Victoria

    Russ Bickerstaff, of the Shepherd Express, was kind enough to take a little look into Milwaukee Opera Theatre’s production of Victory for Victoria!

    “One of the largely unsung figures in US history gets a closer look this month thanks to Milwaukee Opera Theatre’s production of the original musical Victory for Victoria. From obscurity to prominence, the show sounds like a fascinating biography. The book is by Susan Peterson Holmes with music by Alissa Rhode and lyrics by Peggy Peterson Ryan. Emerging talent Allie Babich is given a fascinating challenge in portraying a character as complex as Woodhull. She’s got plenty of charisma to shine into a very charismatic figure from the margins of US history.

    Victory for Victoria runs Oct. 27 – 30 at the Wauwatosa Woman’s Club on 1626 Wauwatosa Avenue.”
