 GREAT NEWS!

We have a new home! We've recently partnered with the Cottonwood Center for the Arts (map here: 427 E. Colorado Ave.) and are one of two resident theatre companies occupying their new performance space! We can't tell you how excited we are to be working with them, surrounded by art and creativity.

NEXT UP: 

BAREFOOT IN THE PARK by Neil Simon

Neil Simon's lighthearted classic is a delicious confection made of the chaos and confusion of young love and the fragile first moments of newlywed life. Paul and Corie are the original Dharma and Greg, a buttoned-down conservative in love with a sparkling free spirit who turns his carefully ordered life upside-down. They have a lot to learn about what it really means to be married, and nobody is more surprised than they are when they hit the first few bumps in the road.

Directed by Wes Whatley.

Bill Wheeler at BroadwayWorld reviews KILLER JOE: "Star Bar takes on Killer Joe with a bold enthusiasm. The challenges for a small company are considerable; this is a script that will appeal to a limited audience. The set and props are substantial, the special effects, including spilling blood onstage are critical to a successful performance. Star Bar blows right by these challenges, bringing Letts’ script to life with a brash, raw, nonstop energy."

 We are lucky in COS to have a group like Star Bar that is willing to take a chance on a risky play like "Bug" -- or, for that matter, "Waiting for Godot" last Fall. -- "Bug" is not an easy play. We witness how seemingly normal people in the first act are drawn into a psychotic world of paranoia and conspiracy theory in the second act. Not the most uplifting theme in the world! -- The transition is tough, and the playwright doesn't really help. Three weaknesses of the main character are revealed in the first act, and none are used in the second act to make the transition believable. The actors have to do that all on their own. The Star Bar players are powerful and should be supported, in my view, even if only because they are willing take huge risks -- like this one.
James Wood, 2010
