Texas State’s ‘Ragtime’ shows why musical is so timely today
 The late-1990s musical “Ragtime” has never been considered a major, “important” work of American theater, in the way that
            shows like “South Pacific,” “Rent” or “Hamilton” have. However, a new production of “Ragtime” by the Texas State University

‘Grounded,’ a one-woman shot about a military pilot, soars
 We’ve heard a lot about drone warfare in the past few years, from the constitutionality of such attacks to the level of secrecy
            associated with the programs. One thing that rarely gets discussed, though, is the effect that waging war from thousands of
            miles away has on the pilots and operators of those drones...

Free play an emotional and timely look at the immigrant experience
 In the year before World War II broke out in earnest in Europe, the British government established a policy that allowed for

If you loved ‘Shakespeare in Love,’ the movie, you’ll probably like ‘Shakespeare in Love’ on stage
 A famous movie about a famous historical playwright co-written by a famous contemporary playwright is now a play adapted from
            that screenplay by a playwright best known for a screenplay. Which is perhaps only fitting for a play about a woman pretending
            to be a man so that she can act in a play written by the man she...
