Theater 2014-15: Women finding power set tone for romance, mystery, superheroes at Lifeline
Seventh in a series of season previews: A thematic thread of young women connecting with their strength as adults runs through the three main-stage plays of Lifeline Theatre’s 2014-15 season. But what jumps out just as clearly is the wide – or maybe the right word is wild – range of stories sharing that motif.
In a compressed ‘Tale of Two Cities,’ Lifeline touches the heart of sacrifice in time of chaos
Review: It’s a good trick, reducing an epic – and I might add really famous – novel like Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities” to two hours’ worth of narrative and dialogue, and yet preserving the psychological and dramatic dimensions that make the story compelling.

The New Season: Adaptable Lifeline Theatre reshapes three novels into stage premieres
Ninth in a series of season previews: In a sense, Lifeline Theatre’s 30th anniversary season will be a year like any other year. The difference with Lifeline is that business as usual means a full slate of world premieres.
