REVIEW: The Man of La Mancha, PSC, June-July 2017

REVIEW: The Man of La Mancha, PSC, June-July 2017

by PFTC writer and Ya-Ty Magazine editor Seneca Garrison Who doesn’t love playing into delusions here and there? Prague Shakespeare Company’s staging of ‘The Man of La Mancha’ is a balance of charm and fun with story and conviction. Lane Davies’ performance as Cervantes/Quixote emerged as such an amiable, enigmatic character that the audience couldn’t help […]

REVIEW: Glengarry Glen Ross, CATNIP/Studio Savec, Every Tues & Sat 14.3-1.4

REVIEW: Glengarry Glen Ross, CATNIP/Studio Savec, Every Tues & Sat 14.3-1.4

by PFTC writer and Prague Pulse Magazine editor Seneca Garrison CATNIP/Savec’s production, in association with The Language House, of David Mamet’s distinctly 80’s play ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’ opened with lot more shoulder pads and big-ass hairdos than you usually see on a Tuesday night in Prague. The sets, acting, and costumes were on par with […]

REVIEW: The Conquest of the North Pole by Cimrman English Theatre

REVIEW: The Conquest of the North Pole by Cimrman English Theatre

by PFTC writer and Prague Pulse Magazine editor Seneca Garrison Cimrman English Theatre’s second voyage into the world of the legendary Jara Cimrman is so easy to love it’s absurd. Of course, the show was absurd for more than just that one reason. If you’re unfamiliar with the plays of Jara Cimrman, read up a […]

REVIEW: Coriolanus by PSC, Divadlo Kolowrat, Sept. 21-23rd

by PFTC writer and Prague Pulse Magazine editor Seneca Garrison Photo credit: Kája Curtis What a poignant time for an all women’s scathing, political tragedy about ego, bowing to the wills of the people, and ultimately proving unable to succeed no matter how qualified, demonstrated, or hard working they prove to be. #MAGA * There were […]

REVIEW: Margaret by PSC, Divadlo Kolowrat, Sept. 6-7th

by PFTC writer and Prague Pulse Magazine editor Seneca Garrison Photo credit: Kája Curtis There is much to say about this packed-in play. It isn’t easy to push three Shakespeare plays into one, the man wasn’t exactly known for being brief or uninvolved. But Prague Shakespeare Company‘s ‘Margaret’ works. It leans heavily on the ability of […]

REVIEW: Richard III by PSC, Estates Theatre, Sept. 3rd

by PFTC writer and Prague Pulse Magazine editor Seneca Garrison. Photo credit: Kája Curtis ‘That bottled spider…that poisonous bunchback’d toad…’ is exactly the Richard III that Guy Roberts brings to life as he scrabbles across the large stage of the Estates Theatre on black crutches that never slow him down, but animalize him into a four-legged […]

REVIEW: The Tempest by PSC, June 28th, Divadlo Kolowrat

by PFTC writer and founder of Prague Pulse Magazine Seneca Garrison. Photo (c) Kája Curtis. First time director, long time puppet master, Brigitte Dörner’s ‘The Tempest’ was a smile further than the fun you’d expect to find in a show full of unique puppetry, vintage styled shadow play, and rich textured costumes. The re-imagined Shakespeare play had very […]

REVIEW: The Taming of the Shrew by PYT Advanced, June 11-14, Divadlo Kolowrat

REVIEW: The Taming of the Shrew by PYT Advanced, June 11-14, Divadlo Kolowrat

By Seneca Garrison, PFTC Staff Writer and co-founder of Prague Pulse Magazine My first thought for this show – the gang’s all here! The essences of Boy George, Joan Jett, Don Johnson, that annoying blond neighbor girl from ‘Full House’ and all the 1980’s tropes danced across the stage reciting conniving plans and declaring teenage […]
