The entire cast—imported from Chicago’s Theater Wit—is uniformly excellent.

'Seven Homeless Mammoths' is a witty, inventive success

August 20th, 2014

The entire cast—imported from Chicago’s Theater Wit—is uniformly excellent.

  • As heart-wrenching as it can be, it’s also a bitingly witty drama.

  • Madeleine George's academic sex comedy comes to Las Vegas.

  • The production leans on the imagery and interpretations of previous performances instead of finding its own, authentic take.

  • 'Anton Chekhov’s Cherry Orchard of the Living Dead' leads with six wins, 'Red' named Best Production.

  • Timing and characterization are critical—but both are lacking across the board.

  • The Reynolds Foundation could provide SST with a $500,000 matching grant, a $1 million windfall that would go toward repairing facilities.

  • Here's hoping we get more comics like this visiting in the future.

  • The summer installment features The Comedy of Errors, Twelfth Night and more.

  • SST kicks off this season's series with the musical "lovingly ripped off" from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

  • The hit musical rolled into the Smith Center with as many awards as profanities—and delivers even more laughter.

  • The production demolishes one myth more than any other: Science isn't fun.

  • 5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche is just one highlight at the yearly theater fest.

  • What a great—and supremely silly—way to kick off the season.
