"...This intimate 80-minute dive into the life and times of Welles, set in his later years as he looks back and reflects on his past, follows the brilliant highs and spectacular lows of Welles' life. The play is the first production at Don Bluth Front Row Theatre's beautiful new venue in Scottsdale, and it stars Keath Hall in an exceptional and commanding performance as Welles...the success of Hall's performance goes beyond an uncanny impersonation. He draws the audience in to Welles' plight and makes them care for him and the many unfortunate circumstances he suffered, which is incredibly impressive considering how pompous, conceited, and hot-heated a man Welles was and how he's depicted exactly that way in Druxman's script...." -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway (click here to read the complete review)

"Bonnie & Clyde (has) a score that has many standout songs and a book that has three-dimensional characters and period perfect dialogue...Limelight Performing Arts' production features a talented cast, rich creative elements, and direction that ensures the heavily dramatic dialogue scenes are realistically delivered....Limelight's cast is very good, with exceptional performances by the show's two main female actresses, Rachel Nathan as Bonnie and Paige Shanks as Blanche, and powerful portrayals by Vance Wolf Cook and Vincent Farley as Clyde and Buck, respectively. All four are very believable as these real people, with natural line delivery and passionate performances that allow us to see the desperation they all feel, which helps to explain how they each ended up in the life they have chosen. Nathan and Cook convey a palpable passion and plenty of heat in their connection with each other and in their constant desire to find a life filled with excitement. Nathan does a beautiful job of showing the conflicted nature Bonnie sometimes feels in her desire for Clyde, even as she realizes that what they are doing is illegal. And Nathan's singing voice is superb. Cook often delivers his lines and lyrics with a growl that elicits the fierceness and unease he feels. With an excellent accent and spot-on line delivery, Shanks is excellent as Blanche...Directors Van Rockwell and Emma England have done a great job of ensuring the entire cast deliver committed, fleshed-out performances, with every dialogue scene ringing true....With a talented cast, including two superb main female performances, Limelight's production is a winner." -Gil Benbrook, Talkin' Broadway (click here to read the complete review)
