BWW Blog: Siobhan O'Loughlin - Bathtubs in Tiny Totnes
by Siobhan O'Loughlin - October 21, 2015

Eight years ago, I flew to the U.K. for the first time in my life. It was also the first time I left the country ever in my life, and the first time I ever lived in a place that wasn't in the state of Maryland. That place was a tiny town in south of England called Totnes.  (more...)

BWW Blog: Meet Jennifer Kronenberg of Miami City Ballet
by Jennifer Kronenberg - October 13, 2015

In many ways it seems so surreal that Miami City Ballet is already embarking on its 30th Anniversary Season. Having been a part of the company for 21 of those seasons, it seems like I simply blinked and suddenly arrived at this point in time.  When I really stop to think about it though, and reflect back on all of those years, I have seen the company grow, change and evolve tremendously. What is most amazing to me is the one thing in particular that has been an unwavering constant - the dancers' incredible spirit. There is no disguising how passionate each one of is, and has always been, about what we do. It is clear how collectively appreciative we are to work alongside one another, and grateful for the opportunity to share our passion with the audience. But performing, of course, is our dessert. First comes the process - the hearty meal that nourishes our souls each and every day. Whether we are tackling a company premiere, or revisiting a work we have done a dozen times, we approach it with the same intense commitment. This season is a bouquet of so many exciting ballets, and it is hard to imagine that only eight weeks into our season, as our opening night nears, we have already immersed ourselves deeply into practically all of them.  (more...)

Special Talkback: Virtual Reality & Treatment of Pain
by Roundabout Theatre Company - October 06, 2015


Veterans, Burns and Pain Management
by Roundabout Theatre Company - October 05, 2015

In Ugly Lies the Bone, Jess's injuries-severe burns sustained from an IED explosion-are indicative of the unique costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. As of February 2013, these two conflicts had resulted in over 6,500 deaths, nearly half of them from IEDs. IEDs, or Improvised Explosive Devices, are homemade bombs, constructed at a relatively low cost with readily accessible combustive materials (fertilizer, gunpowder, hydrogen peroxide). Occasionally packed with sharp materials (glass, nails, metal) to increase the likelihood of shrapnel-like injuries, the bombs are often buried along the roadside, to be detonated remotely or automatically when troops walk or drive over the sites. When IEDs first appeared in combat zones, in early 2002, the military didn't know how to categorize the deaths that were occurring as a result of seemingly unmanned explosions. The first death immediately (rather than retroactively) classified as resulting from an IED explosion occurred on November 14, 2003. In the following decade, IEDs came to be common knowledge in both the military and the media, and their results have left a lasting legacy-not only in deaths, but also in (far more common, and just as devastating) injuries.

We remember Brian Friel
by Roundabout Theatre Company - October 02, 2015

The Roundabout family mourns the loss of Brian Friel. This gifted playwright gave so many beautiful stories to the world, and we will treasure those that we were able to bring to life with him. Brian always wrote with great depth, whether through his unmatched sense of language, surprising humor, righteous anger, or incredible heart. His commitment to bringing stories of his Irish homeland, often through the town of Ballybeg that he created and populated with so many memorable tales and characters, was admirable. (more...)

About the Playwright: Harold Pinter
by Roundabout Theatre Company - September 29, 2015

Harold Pinter was born in Hackney, in London's East End, in October of 1930. An only child, he was born to Jewish parents of very moderate means; his father, a tailor, and his mother, a homemaker, were first-generation descendants of Eastern European immigrants. Like many of his contemporaries, Pinter's childhood was shaped by the onslaught of World War II; at the age of nine, he was evacuated from London through Operation Pied Piper and resettled in a town in Cornwall. The sense of isolation he felt in Cornwall would come to influence his work, as would the changed London to which he returned during the Blitz, where he was witness to, as his 2008 Guardianobituary put it, 'the dramatic nature of wartime life - the palpable fear, the sexual desperation, the genuine sense that everything could end tomorrow.'

BWW Blog: Meggie Cansler of Transcendence Theatre's 'Rhythm of Life' - I'm Changing
by Meggie Cansler - September 08, 2015

How is it late August already? Kids have already had their first day of school and we have closed our third concert, 'Rhythm of Life'! That is BANANA BOATS! (Cansler speak for nuts!) The community here in Sonoma Valley went nuts for this show. It was a variety show that surprised you with every number. One minute you had a sexy fosse style number, then a lyrical dance to 'Fields of Gold' (danced and choreographed by Amanda Lehmen and Dylan Smith and such by Leslie MacDonnel and Stephen Stubbins)...oh, and can we talk about the fact that I have always thought it was among the fields of BALI??? Barley makes so much more sense. Great job, Meggie! That got the ladies dressing room laughing... There were other stand out numbers packed with energy where there was no dancing at all. My brained was tried and tested with learning a Pointer Sisters duet called 'Cloudburst'. It has so many lyrics and we sing it at lightening speed. It was a quartet of fierce ladies and we practiced every free minute we got... to the point where if you didn't know we were rehearsing, we looked like we were talking to ourselves like crazy people. You know how people look when you don't realize they have a bluetooth in their ear?? Well, picture that and fast forward it 3x and that is what we looked like on any free moment in rehearsal to make sure we got these lyrics out of our mouths! The pay off was awesome! I felt so proud that we did. Seriously, download this song and see what I am talking about! (more...)
