by BWW News Desk (Maine)

(7/21/2014) - Musical Comedies are Hackmatack Playhouse's forte. Hackmatackers (those who have attended a Hackmatack production and keep coming back) are said to "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" and are going to adore this show. Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail', "Spamalot" retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, cows, a killer rabbit and many French people. Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls?


BWW Interviews: Choreographers Patti Colombo and Karl Warden Thrill Maine AudiencesBWW Interviews: Choreographers Patti Colombo and Karl Warden Thrill Maine Audiences
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold (Maine)

(7/21/2014) - 'I definitely have a choreographic style - much of what I do is ballet-based and athletic, but I was trained in the Jack Cole manner. My mentors, Ron Lewis, Ron Fields, were all Jack Cole people. I have a strong sense of jazz, true American jazz based in ballet.' The speaker is a petite, svelte, red-haired dynamo of energy and bubbly enthusiasm. Seated opposite me a few days before the opening of her latest theatrical endeavor, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at Maine State Music Theatre, director-choreographer Patti Colombo talks about her Maine debut and her other award-winning theatrical projects - among them, On the Town, West Side Story, Mask, L'il Abner, Peter Pan, Seussical, which have taken her to Broadway and around the world.

by Dan Marois (Maine)

(7/18/2014) - While you may be primed for seeing the stage version of The Full Monty based on seeing the movie of the same name, you'll be surprised that the stage show presents in depth characters, emotional scenes and true life situations that make great storytelling. The characters boldly face such obstacles as unemployment, divorce, and depression but always with a comic flair. The show is loaded with fun musical numbers, creative choreography, and hilarious sight gags from truly absurd situations.

by BWW News Desk (Maine)

(7/18/2014) - Penobscot Theatre Company's Dramatic Academy is readying for its first youth production of the summer, Hairspray. Set in Baltimore in the late 1960s, this hit Broadway musical follows big-haired and big-hearted Tracy Turnblad, a spunky teenager who realizes her dream of dancing on a popular television program then launches a campaign to integrate the show. 'As a musical theatre junkie, I am thrilled to be producing Hairspray,' said Christie Robinson, who is directing along with Ben Layman, assisted by Alek Sayers. 'A feel-good, sparkly musical with big dance numbers, big notes, and big hair? What's not to love?'


Theater at Monmouth Opens A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE TonightTheater at Monmouth Opens A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE Tonight
by BWW News Desk (Maine)

(7/18/2014) - Season 45 continues at Theater at Monmouth with Oscar Wilde's deliciously witty satire, A Woman of No Importance, opening tonight, July 18 at 7:30 p.m. Fraught with epigrams and pithy sentiments, A Woman of No Importance probes the societal hypocrisy of punishing women for the sin of passion while lauding men for their conquest. Surely the basis for Downton Abbey, Wilde's dark comedy lays bare the moral contradictions of Victorian England.
