Bob Goepfert Reviews "The Whale"

GLENS FALLS – “The Whale” is more than a good drama – it’s a genuine tragedy. It is about good people who succumb to their flaws and live lives that are hurtful to themselves and others.

“The God Game,” a new play being offered at Capital Repertory Theatre through May 25, tells a thoughtful story in a totally engaging manner.  It has enough drama to keep you interested during its two hour running time but it doesn’t depend on the scandal of the moment to drive the story.

SCHENECTADY – The film “Flashdance” was a surprise hit in 1983.   It wasn’t a musical but the music and dance in the show about a female steel-worker who moonlights as a dancer in nightclubs and dreams of being a ballet dancer won over audiences.
