Caught in the Act

Company One Artistic Director and co-founder Shawn LaCount is reliable on two counts. He is always well capped in what's become his trademark hats and his theater company will always take audiences in fresh and uncharted directions.  As a director this summer, he turned the Roberts Studio at the BCA into a real wrestling ring for his intensely sharp "The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity."  

Later this month he directs the regional premiere of "Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo," which starred Robin Williams on Broadway last year.  Here he's Caught in the Act with Jared Bowen talking about what propels him…including "Little Shop of Horrors."

Inside the Worcester Art Museum

There was a time that the Worcester Art Museum was considered one of this country’s best, but as that city’s luster faded, so did the museum’s.  Now it’s coming into prominence once again, however, as a new director with ties to one of the world’s greatest museums takes hold.
 
It is a shame that for so long, praise for the Worcester Art Museum has gone unsung. It is, without question, world class.  The Roman Mosaic in its Renaissance Court is the largest in the Western Hemisphere. Its colonial portraits are by far the oldest. It has the second largest Paul Revere silver collection and a first rate assemblage of European masters.
