REVIEWS


The Merry Wives of Windsor - The Bard meets Lucille Ball in Southwest Shakespeare’s production of “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” which has been done up like a ’50s sitcom complete with commercial breaks and a catchy jingle for Falstaff beer.
Director Ben Tyler’s conceit is a perfect match for the material, whose silly plot contrivances are among Shakespeare’s sitcommiest. Kerry Lengel - The Arizona Republic


The Wallace & Ladmo Show  -  The Wallace and Ladmo Show is not just a small part of the valley’s history, it’s an immeasurably important part.  Because of it the lives of both children and adults were made that little bit richer, and Ben Tyler’s loving production brings it home. David Appleford - KEZZ FM


Beau Jest - To open the space, the Hale is presenting James Sherman's comedy of errors, Beau Jest. They were wise to hire local Director Ben Tyler, a strong helmer with a successful track record with comedies, who has collected a strong cast. 
Mark Turvin - Backstage.com


The Last Shwartz - Director Ben Tyler and his design team underline the serious subtext with symbolic cracks in the walls and on-the-nose song selections from R.E.M. ("Losing My Religion," "Man on the Moon," "It's the End of the World"). The result is a bittersweet portrait of a family watching history and happiness, slipping through their fingers, like stardust floating gently back to space. Kerry Lengel - The Arizona Republic


See How They Run ​- Tyler's paced the antics so the audience gets a grip on the play's essential facts early, building to a thigh slapping third act. Roberta Burnett - The Arizona Republic


The Pirates of Penzance - Valley playwright/actor/director Ben Tyler, who’s at the helm of the current summer show of “Penzance” at Gilbert’s Hale Centre Theatre has  mined the script for every possible double entendre, pop culture reference and fourth wall-breaking gag — everything but the kitchen sink and if it would have earned a laugh, he might have included one of those, too — and thrown them in with abandon, though thankfully without shipwrecking the show’s easy spirit. Match that comic wackiness with some wonderful singing from the cast, and it’s easy to say Tyler and company have crafted a near-perfect summertime show.  Chris Page - Mesa Tribune


Mrs. Bob Cratchit's Wild Christmas Binge -  The ensemble is consistently and appropriately manic with a wild-eyed holiday gleam in their eyes. Tyler has kept the show running pitched forward and aimed at the gut.  Mark Turvin - Backstage.com
