BWW Reviews: BAD MEDICINE Or GOOD TO THE LAST DROP?BWW Reviews: BAD MEDICINE Or GOOD TO THE LAST DROP?
by Katricia Lang (Houston)

(8/20/2014) - There is something for everyone. Kids from 1 to 92 can 'boo', 'hiss', and toss popcorn at the villains. Adolescents can moon, if kids still moon these days, over the love story. And if you're too old and crotchety to care about love stories like me, then you can witness the other characters getting drunk, flirting, yelling and all in all having a good time. In the end ... should I say it? I'm gonna say it. In the end, BAD MEDICINE is good to the last drop.

THE VOYSEY INHERITANCE Comes to Peterborough Players, Now thru 8/31THE VOYSEY INHERITANCE Comes to Peterborough Players, Now thru 8/31
by BWW News Desk (New Hampshire)

(8/20/2014) - 'The Voysey Inheritance' was written in 1905 by Harley Granville-Barker, however, it tells a tale that proves that there is nothing new under the sun. It is a story that we are all too painfully familiar with if we were keeping up with Bernie Madoff and his fraudulent financial dealings. But, 'The Voysey Inheritance' gives us hope that there still may be some good people out there who might try to set things right. This iconic British play of morality and manners comes to the Peterborough Players this summer.

BWW Profile: Benedict Cumberbatch Emmy-Nominated Star of Stage and ScreenBWW Profile: Benedict Cumberbatch Emmy-Nominated Star of Stage and Screen
by Matt Tamanini

(8/20/2014) - Though only 38 years old, British actor Benedict Cumberbatch has already amassed an impressive list of credits on stage, on television, and on the big screen. Though he has yet to grace a Broadway stage, I have a feeling that that is just an eventuality as his popularity continues to skyrocket on this side of the Atlantic. Today we are taking a look at his career from the British stage in 'Hedda Gabler,' 'After the Dance,' and 'Frankenstein' to his work on film in '12 Years a Slave,' 'August: Osage County,' and 'Star Trek: Into Darkness,' to his iconic work on TV as the 'high-functioning sociopath' titular character on the BBC's 'Sherlock,' for which he is nominated a second time, in addition to his 2013 nomination for HBO's 'Parade's End.'
