Kansas City Actors Theatre has opened the final show in their 10th Season down at The Carlsen Center on the campus of JCCC.  Crimes of the Heart is a dark comedy filled in tragedy and laughs, suicide and lemonade.  Come out and see us if you can.  The show runs through March 8th.  For tickets check this out.  Or, if you know me well enough to email me, drop me a note and I can probably get you a discount.

Check out what the media is saying:

The always excellent, Deborah Hirsch, of The Pitch, proclaims the story strong and rich, full of idiosyncratic performances.  “This casting, if in lieu of narrative logic, provides an ideal platform for this talented ensemble. It also adds a depth that might not otherwise exist in this largely light work…”.  Full review here.

Diana Reese at the Kansas City Star calls it “memorable theatre” saying: “I hated to say goodbye to the sisters Magrath“.   She goes on to say that “Coleman Crenshaw shines in his KCAT debut”.   Read the full review on the KC Star website here.

The KC Metropolis reviewer, Karen Hauge, chimes in with:  “Henley’s fine, colloquial writing and delicate storytelling come to life in the careful hands of the actors and director Darren Sextro.”  Find the full text of Karen Hauge’s wonderfully crafted review here.

Frank C. Siraguso calls it “just plain fun” and “a fast-paced tale” in his review over at the Kansas City InfoZine.

Bob Evans, with the Examiner, says it is “a super-strong cast from top to bottom” that create a “darkly funny” play that he gives his “highest recommendation“.   Full review here.
