Retrospective

 


Journey to the West
September, 2012

Matt Bowdren, Christopher Johnson, Patty Gallagher and Ryan Parker Knox

What audiences are saying about Journey to the West:

Tucson area people: This is a don't miss.
Superb performance of
Journey to the West at The Rogue Theatre.   —P.S.

Thanks a lot for the marvelous play! It was full of inspiration for all of us.   —P.H.

An amazing journey for the audience as well! Rogue is consistently excellent...a gem!   —J.S.

Wonderful story, production and performances in Journey.   —S.M.

What an amazingly wonderful and creative show and your solutions to its many
complexities are equally wonderful and amazing!
I can't imagine a better way to begin another superlative season.
   —D.S.

The production merged music, acting, sound, lighting, costumes and props
to swirl us effortlessly from underworld to celestial realms and back to earth again.
We left the theatre feeling intoxicated, and this morning, we're still smiling.
   —L.R.

I totally enjoyed this fun, innovative, and wise event! I highly recommend it.
The music was beautiful. Thanks!
   —L.S.

Saw an AMAZING performance today—so glad we have season tickets now!
Thanks, Rogue, for helping us to introduce our 10-year-old niece to high-quality theatre.
Looking forward to a great season.    —S.D.

A tremendously theatrical achievement.   —M.H.

Mother Courage and Her Children
January, 2013

The Ensemble of Mother Courage

 

What audiences are saying about Mother Courage:

The Rogue Theatre showed a bit of courage itself staging Brecht's masterpiece ...
And it worked.   —Arizona Daily Star

Just got home from Mother Courage. Last saw it in the National Arts Centre in Ottawa over 35 years ago.
There was no comparison. Your production blew theirs away in every way, sets, music, acting and costumes.
Congratulations to all on such a great piece of work.   
—J.B.

The Rogue production of Mother Courage is another barn burner. It is so terrific.   —P.M.

After the play, we had a wonderful, long discussion about Mother Courage. I know I've said this before,
but thank you for enriching our lives so deeply.   —K.D.

Although the entire cast is wonderful, Cynthia Meier has set the bar very high for 2013 with her portrayal
of Mother Courage in tonight's opening of the play at The Rogue Theatre. If you miss this one, you will regret it!   —
M.C.

This is quite possibly the best theater I have ever seen in Tucson.    —C.A.

I saw the production of Mother Courage that the [New York] Public Theatre did in the Park a few years ago.
There were a lot of stars in it. But I wasn't moved the way I was by this production at The Rogue.
   —J.J.

Everything about the production was exceptional as usual and I thank you again
for bringing such wonderful theater to Tucson!
   —L.K.

after the quake
June, 2013

You absolutely must go see after the quake which opened tonight at the Rogue Theatre.
As profound as it is delicately lyrical, adapted from a pair of modern Japanese short stories,
the play directed by Nic Adams is pure delight.
And if you don’t go see it, you will forever be sorry!

—Chuck Graham, TucsonStage.com Reviewer

 

after the quake is a rich, beguiling tale. It shouldn’t be missed.

—Kathleen Allen, Arizona Daily Star
