BWW Reviews: MADCO's Extraordinary WALLSTORIESBWW Reviews: MADCO's Extraordinary WALLSTORIES
by Chris Gibson (St. Louis)

(11/20/2014) - The Berlin Wall was erected in 1961 to supposedly "protect" the population of East Germany from succumbing to socialism. But, all it actually accomplished was the emotionally painful separation of families and friends; preventing the so-called defection of individuals looking to avoid living in a communist state. And, until it's destruction in 1989, it served as a grim reminder to the rest of the world that oppression was still very much alive and well (and still is around the globe). Choreographer Nejla Yatkin has taken this dark history lesson and transformed it into a unique work called WALLSTORIES that combines modern dance with interviews she collected and edited, as well as the music of Pink Floyd, Bach, and Larsen and Sherman. MADCO presented this powerful and compelling production at the Touhill November 14-16, for a total of six performances, three of which played to students who were brought in to see the show. It was a truly moving experience that I felt privileged to see.

BWW Review: Rollins' OUR TOWN is the Perfect Blending of Classic Theatrical MagicBWW Review: Rollins' OUR TOWN is the Perfect Blending of Classic Theatrical Magic
by Matt Tamanini (Orlando)

(11/20/2014) - One of the most magical places that I have ever been is Grover's Corners, New Hampshire. It's not a fancy place, just a simple town in which people go about their business, but are always willing to stop and chat about the weather. Grover's Corners is the epitome of a way of life that has long since ceased to exist, if it ever actually did in the first place. However, despite its quantness and surface simplicity, every time I go back to visit, I find more and more depth in the town than I ever remembered being there before. Perhaps this is a simple byproduct of my own aging, but each time I stop by Grover's Corners, I fall more and more in love with this mythical, magical town.
