BWW Reviews: Strong Voices Perk Up TAM's Gilbert and SullivanBWW Reviews: Strong Voices Perk Up TAM's Gilbert and Sullivan
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold (Maine)

(9/22/2014) - As has been the tradition for quite a few seasons, Theater at Monmouth ends its season with a production of one of Gilbert and Sullivan's comic operettas. This year's choice, The Sorcerer, is a frothy, pleasant entertainment enhanced by the strong vocal merits of much of the cast. The pristine neo- baroque gem of a theatre in Cumston Hall is the perfect venue for singing. The acoustic - unmiked - is crisp, clear, focused, and allows for the ringing delivery and coloratura fun of Sullivan's music.

by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(9/22/2014) - What would you do if a human sized, English speaking lizard walked up to you on the beach? How about two of them? Well get ready for that experience as Theater Schmeater explores two different sides of evolution in Edward Albee's "Seascape". And while it takes a bit of time for the show to evolve as well, once it does it's a quirky fun time.

by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(9/22/2014) - I'm quite pleased to announce that Seattle, at this moment in time, has an abundance of incredible shows to choose from. OK, well, two of them but they're both stunners. You've already heard me droning on about the other "can't miss" show recently and now comes along a very different but equally impressive show with New Century Theatre Company's "Mary's Wedding" by Stephen Massicotte. I can honestly say I haven't sobbed (yes sobbed, not cried) this much in a show since Showtunes' amazing "Falsettos" a few years back. Bring some tissues. Hell, bring the whole box but catch this incredible love story!

BWW Review: Fresh Production, Unfresh Play: AMADEUS at Center StageBWW Review: Fresh Production, Unfresh Play: AMADEUS at Center Stage
by Jack L. B. Gohn (Baltimore)

(9/22/2014) - There is nothing wrong with the handsome production director Kwame Kwei-Armah has given us, from the amazing two-storey set by Timothy R. Mackabee to the decolletage-heavy, periwig-topped, bustle-bottomed, gilded costumes of David Burdick, to the sturdy performances of Bruce Randolph Nelson and Stanton Nash as Salieri and Mozart, to literally everything else associated with this resurrection of the show. I am convinced that the problem lies with the script itself.

by Jack L. B. Gohn (Baltimore)

(9/22/2014) - Wow to the theater, a three-tier structure that echoes the layout of Shakespeare's own Globe. Wow to the play, one of Shakespeare's funniest. Wow to the acting, the direction, the staging, the lighting. The audience is assured of over two hours of being in stitches.


BWW Reviews: MEMBER OF THE WEDDING Has Reception on Theatre Memphis' Next StageBWW Reviews: MEMBER OF THE WEDDING Has Reception on Theatre Memphis' Next Stage
by Joseph Baker (Memphis)

(9/22/2014) - Following the recent triumph of the musical THE ADDAMS FAMILY, and nestled quietly in the more intimate setting of Theatre Memphis' Next Stage, Carson McCullers' touching THE MEMBER OF THE WEDDING offers yet another 'Addams Family.' This time, however, the trio of performers who dominate the play - tomboyish 'Frankie' (nee 'Frances'), odd little 'John Henry,' and warm, nurturing 'Berenice' - easily draw the audience members into the world of their kitchen and garden area. It may seem a ridiculous notion, but I couldn't help seeing a similarity between the two plays. In both plays, the main characters are removed from an outside, 'normal' world; and in both plays, there are characters who wish to be seen by others as normal. Yet, THE MEMBER OF THE WEDDING, despite its moments of humor (and there are many such moments), is full of longing and pain and frustration.

by Katricia Lang (Houston)

(9/22/2014) - I am not an '80s fan. (Why the shoulder pads and clashing colors, '80s?) But, '80s IN OUR UNDIES' Judy Garland-esque mix of funny anecdotes and virtuosic vocals is appealing.
