“Godspell” is a musical retelling of the Gospel According to Matthew, in which Jesus shares parables with his followers. It seems fitting, then, that this year’s annual production by Riverhead Faculty and Community Theatre — temporarily homeless due to renovations at the high school — would land in the historic Jamesport Meeting House, which has its own history of religious services and has had numerous “resurrections” of its own over the last 275 years.  (more…)

“Once upon a time” is a phrase filled with the promise of adventure, thrills, true love, lessons learned and happy endings. And so begins “Into the Woods,” a musical that combines numerous well-known fairy tales into its own unique story that offers all of the above and more.

If you have never seen “Into the Woods,” written by James Lapine with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, you need to catch North Fork Community Theatre’s current production. If you have seen it and are a fan, as I am, you won’t want to miss the chance to enjoy it once again. (more…)
