Juneau Empire Recommends ‘Cat’ to Anchorage!

From the Juneau Empire:

[box] Hot “Tin Roof” heads to Anchorage April 11

If you missed the Juneau run of Perseverance Theatre’s “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and you’re planning on being in Anchorage in April, I highly recommend you catch the production at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. This is a standout show, anchored by riveting performances on the part of the cast, particularly major players Enrique Bravo as Brick, Elizabeth M. Kelly as Maggie, and Herbert Siguenza as Big Daddy. The show, directed by Robert Barry Fleming, opens in Anchorage April 11 and runs through April 27.[/box]

For director Maynard-Losh, ‘Treasure Island’ marks homecoming

JUNEAU EMPIRE, November 7, 2013
“It’s been a while since Anita Maynard-Losh has directed a play at Perseverance Theatre; 2004’s Tlingit “Macbeth” was her last local production before she moved to Washington, D.C., later that year. But in terms of her lasting influence on the theater and the Juneau community, she’s never really left.” See the Juneau Empire article for more:
