BWW Reviews: JERSEY BOYS - An Electrifying Entertaining Evening Photos BWW Reviews: JERSEY BOYS - An Electrifying Entertaining Evening
(3/27/2015) - The 60's were an exciting time for music in America, due in no small part to the proliferation of groups with amazing vocal harmonies like The Mamas & Papas, The Beach Boys, Spanky & Our Gang and The Four Seasons. JERSEY BOYS is a jukebox musical based on the song catalog of The Four Seasons; however, unlike most jukebox musicals, JERSEY BOYS features an intelligent script where the songs flow with the story instead of being forced into a storyline. I suspect the participation of Rick Elice, who was also one of the scriptwriters for the charming and witty PETER AND THE STARCATCHER had more than a little to do with the intelligence and theatrical storytelling skill on display here.

BWW Reviews: CHARLEY'S AUNT Plagued by Pacing Problems Photos BWW Reviews: CHARLEY'S AUNT Plagued by Pacing Problems
(3/24/2015) - By definition, a farce is a light theatrical work in which highly improbable plot situations, exaggerated characters, and slapstick are used for humorous effect. Brandon Thomas's play CHARLEY'S AUNT (1892) is a classic example of farce. Farce requires a certain level of comic timing. In farce, the humor comes from rapid speech and rapid movementā€¦ people running into and out of rooms at breakneck speed and managing to cause havoc in the process. An example of this style done to perfection was the BBC series FAWLTY TOWERS. Another meaning for the word farce is a seasoned stuffing, as for roasted turkey.

CHARLEY'S AUNT Opens Today at City Theater Photos CHARLEY'S AUNT Opens Today at City Theater
(3/20/2015) - Different Stages continues its 2013 - 2014 season with Brandon Thomas's Charley's Aunt. Oxford students Jack and Charley can't court their sweethearts without a chaperone. Charley's aunt is on her way from Brazil and will fit the bill - until her arrival is delayed! What to do, what to do? By George, they hire an impersonator, or rather coerce their rascally schoolmate Fancourt to pose as Charley's aunt from Brazil, -'where the nuts come from.' Complications begin when the schoolmate, in drag, becomes the love object of two older men.
