Spinning Tree Theatre

Critics' Choice

Local theater is a fertile field of dreams — if they build it, we will go. Around here, more and more new players have been doing just that and, in the process, also drafting teams of local designers and actors (the better to see both new and familiar faces) and giving us more shows. The nonprofit Spinning Tree Theatre first sprouted on the scene in April 2011 with Make Me a Song. The company continued to flower with a two-show season in 2011–12 (see "Best Recovery," Best of KC 2012), and co-founders Andy Parkhurst and Michael Grayman have been growing Spinning Tree into a three-show season with professionally mounted and well-pruned productions. Last year, we got into a famous diva's head in Terrence McNally's Tony Award-winning Master Class; we were swept up in award–winning playwright Donald Margulies' Shipwrecked! An Entertainment; and we explored sexuality in Michael John LaChiusa's musical Hello Again. And all we had to do was get there.
