“They think I’m stupid and I like it.” Winner of the 2007 Critic’s Choice Award for Best Fringe Production, Laura Harris portrays comedic actor Judy Holliday. Judy Holliday, Oscar winner for 1950′s Born Yesterday, was a 170-IQ genius who specialized in playing dumb blondes – an act that held her in good stead when she was hauled before Senator McCarthy’s inquisitors in 1952 on suspicion of having communist sympathies. That part of her too-short life is the subject of this evocative play starring Laura Harris. More »

The February production of the rock n’ roll comedy Trafford Tanzi by Village Theatre in Waterdown brings back to life the glory days of Hamilton’s supremacy in wrestling, when the city earned the name The Factory for churning out “wrasslers” who conquered the world. The play, by British playwright Claire Luckham, features the growth of a wrestling heroine from a baby in diapers to a woman who takes on her parents, her rival, and her husband in bouts of rock n’ roll, dance … and wrestling! Every argument, discussion, and disagreement is played out in wrestling moves, winner take all. More »
