by Matt Tamanini

(10/20/2014) - We are halfway through THE VOICE's Season 7 Battle Rounds, and I honestly couldn't tell you a single person who has won so far. Though there have been many memorable moments, the majority of them have involved the superstar coaches. However, tonight, I think that is going to change. In a performance preview video Team Pharrell beltresses DaNica Shirey and Toia Jones absolutely destroy Beyonce's 'Halo' in every possible good way. I have barely had a goosebump all season, let alone the full-body bumps that this performance gave me. Check it out for yourself below.

by Pamela Roberts (Washington, DC)

Set gloriously in the mid-century, the production elements are a delight.


BWW Review: HELEN LAWRENCE at Canadian StageBWW Review: HELEN LAWRENCE at Canadian Stage
by Dennis Kucherawy (Toronto)

(10/20/2014) - 'Helen Lawrence,' now playing at Toronto's Bluma Appel, theatre, is an entertaining, multi-media presentation of a 1940s film noir story hampered by a thin script by Chris Haddock (co-written with Stan Douglas.) During the first five minutes, you tend to be overwhelmed by the show's blue compositing technique in which the live action onstage is enhanced by its larger-than-life, black-and-white close-up projection on a scrim in front of the actors. But the technical ingenuity shortly wears off, and you're left with a complex plot, heavy on exposition and light on action and tension.
