Theater Review: Roller Coaster Theatrics Drive Otherworldly The Wiz

The new production of The Wiz, presented as a joint collaboration by the Dallas Theater Center and Dallas Black Dance Theatre, has done something magical. It’s taken a dated, often lambasted piece of material and refashioned it into an exciting and surprising theatrical experience.

Dallas Theater Center’s Fat Pig Feels Like an Idea Not Fully Formed

Fat Pig was not written as a companion piece to The Shape of Things, but by presenting the two side-by-side in repertory as the Dallas Theater Center is doing now, it’s all but impossible not to compare and contrast. Where The Shape of Things’ characters kept secrets, created tension, and danced an escalating dance of manipulation, the foursome of Fat Pig seem too exposed, too obvious. It’s a treat to see the actors in such a different light from their Shape of Things characters, but sadly they’re not given much to explore.
