BWW Reviews: WIDOW is Not Very Merry with Fleming in Charge at the MetBWW Reviews: WIDOW is Not Very Merry with Fleming in Charge at the Met
by Richard Sasanow - Jan 28, 2015

Once upon a time, the Met used to be able to pull off an operetta, like the Rudolf Bing-era FLEDERMAUS, with its Garson Kanin libretto and lyrics by Broadway's Howard Dietz. But for the second year in a row--after last season's dire FLEDERMAUS from writer Douglas Carter Beane and director Jeremy Sams--the company rolled the dice and came up craps. How bad is the new production of Franz Lehar's THE MERRY WIDOW (DIE LUSTIGE WITWE)? Let me count the ways. (more...)

You might have heard this one -- Restless secretary Marion Crane goes on the run after stealing a hefty sum of money. Driven off the road by a storm, she takes refuge at the Bates Motel, run by a polite but peculiar man named Norman, who dotes faithfully on his domineering, aged mother. Marion takes a shower, and the rest is genre-defining history as she meets her end at the hands of a maniac with a knife in a nightdress. Scroll down for a first look at The Public House Theatre's production of 'Bates: An 80s Musical Psycho Parody'! (more...)

STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/15/15- THE 39 STEPSSTAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/15/15- THE 39 STEPS
by Stage Tube - Jan 15, 2015

Today in 2008, The 39 Steps opend at the American Airlines Theatre, where it ran for 771 performances. The play is a farce adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. Patrick Barlow wrote the adaptation, based on the original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon of a two-actor version of the play. The play's concept calls for the entirety of the 1935 adventure film The 39 Steps to be performed with a cast of only four. One actor plays the hero, Richard Hannay, an actress plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men, women, children and even the occasional inanimate object. This often requires lightning fast quick-changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once. Thus the film's serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest.
