by BWW News Desk - Apr 1, 2015

Though it has served as a cultural landmark in Atlanta for more than 35 years, the Center for Puppetry Arts has discovered possibly definitive proof that its beloved Midtown site has always been a home for puppets. Earlier this month, while crews were working on a highly anticipated renovation and expansion project to build a new Museum, a discovery was made of a previously unknown and obviously very old puppet.

BWW Reviews: THE GRINCH Stage Musical Offers Fun, Kid-Friendly TheatricsBWW Reviews: THE GRINCH Stage Musical Offers Fun, Kid-Friendly Theatrics
by Michael L. Quintos - Dec 12, 2014

I'd have to be, well... a mean ol' Grinch to say anything remotely negative about the new non-equity touring stage production of DR. SEUSS' HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL, so I'll try my best to keep it to a minimum. Honestly though, it's really not that hard, actually, because---surprise---the show, for the most part, is an honest-to-goodness adorable little musical with lots of kid-friendly comedy and a feel-good holiday message that really softens even the hardest of cynics. And yes, even I myself found my heart growing three sizes during the course of the show's smile-inducing opening night performance at Costa Mesa's Segerstrom Center for the Arts (it continues here for a brief run through December 14). Sure, the show isn't exactly the pinnacle of musical theater excellence, nor does it even attempt to be. But what it lacks in roof-raising, show-stopping splendor, it makes up for ten-fold in pure pluck---the kind that kids, especially, will eat right up like candy. (more...)

BWW Reviews: 'Accentuate the Positive!' THE ANDREWS BROTHERS Is 'Positively' Smashing at the Annenberg TheatreBWW Reviews: 'Accentuate the Positive!' THE ANDREWS BROTHERS Is 'Positively' Smashing at the Annenberg Theatre
by David Green - Feb 6, 2014

I'm almost certain I've said this before about a Coyote Stageworks production - but it bears repeating! 'Run, don't walk' to the box office to see this highly polished, highly entertaining and anything but 'high brow' musical comedy before it's too late. I offer a few critical thoughts below, in addition to heaps of praise -- but nothing to impede you from running out and spending a thoroughly enjoyable evening in the theatre with an absolutely irresistible quartet of actors. Founder and Artistic Director, Chuck Yates, has once again assembled a 'dream team' of actors, directors and designers who deliver at every turn. The Andrews Brothers is all fluff, to be sure, but it is presented with such panache, polish and style that the diversion from anything with more depth is just what the doctor ordered. I can't think of a better description than a very old-fashioned word - 'delightful'! It was absolutely delightful. I LOVED THIS SHOW and you will too. (more...)

KiT Releases TAMBUTRONIC TodayKiT Releases TAMBUTRONIC Today
by BWW News Desk - Jan 14, 2014

Tradition is a tricky beast. There are those who would leave it as a dusty, living museum exhibit. Then there are others who see further, into thepossibility of tradition, a line that runs through history all the way to the present. They're the ones who respect the past but aren't going to be hidebound by it, who make it a very vital part of now. People like KiT, who've transformed the old tambu music of Curacao into the 21st-century phenomenon of Tambutronic (Jiga Musica; US release: today, January 14, 2014). (more...)
