Maryland Morning theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck says "The Golden Spike" playwright R.M. O'Brien condenses "a bit of the Wild West, a bit of silent movies, a bit of Native American legend, a bit of Mormon theology, a bit of American Capitalism, and the epic of Gilgamesh" into a 95-minute format.

You can see it for yourself at the Baltimore Annex Theater until March 2. 

J. Wynn Rousuck has been reviewing theater for WYPR's Midday (and previously, Maryland Morning) since 2007. Prior to that, she was the theater critic of The Baltimore Sun, where she reviewed more than 3,000 plays over the course of 23 years. Her feature coverage for The Sun included a comprehensive series chronicling the development of the Tony Award-winning musical, “Hairspray.” Judy got her start at The Cleveland Press and at Cleveland’s fine arts radio station, WCLV. Her broadcasting experience also includes a year as an on-air theater critic for Maryland Public Television.
