THE BEST OF ALBUQUERQUE FRINGE 2025 Set for Hollywood FringeTHE BEST OF ALBUQUERQUE FRINGE 2025 Set for Hollywood Fringe
by BWW News Desk - May 20, 2015

Two years ago, as writer/actors Jim Blanchette and Jacob Smith were waiting for a quick load in for their Hollywood Fringe festival show, evading incontinent birds in an alley and talking about what Fringe artists go through, they started forming ideas for the "fringiest" of Fringe shows. At the same time, their colleague Corey Lynn Howe and her company Village Idiom Productions presented an acclaimed version of the hit musical [title of show] and experienced both successes and challenges all their own. As they talked over drinks at Fringe Central, what the three quickly realized is that Fringe is about a lot more than the artists and their shows, it's also about hard work, camaraderie, ambition, drinking, frustration, varying levels of talent, lunacy and, at many times, absolute absurdity.

Madeline Kahn Biography, BEING THE MUSIC, Now Available!Madeline Kahn Biography, BEING THE MUSIC, Now Available!
by BWW News Desk - May 4, 2015

Best known for her Oscar-nominated roles in the smash hits Paper Moon and Blazing Saddles, Madeline Kahn (1942-99) was one of the most popular comedians of her time - and one of the least understood. In private, she was as reserved and refined as her characters were bold and bawdy. Almost a Method actor in her approach, she took her work seriously, and when crewmembers and audiences laughed, she asked why - as if they were laughing at her - and all her life she remained unsure of her gifts.

BWW Reviews: Bet You're Bottom Dollar That Tomorrow...You'll Love ANNIEBWW Reviews: Bet You're Bottom Dollar That Tomorrow...You'll Love ANNIE
by Wendi Reichstein - Apr 22, 2015

If you asked me to pick a musical I loved based on nostalgia alone, it would be, without a doubt, Annie. Probably for the same reason most theatre kids will tell you; it was the very first musical I was ever in. I was in 6th grade, and I played Kathy. You probably don't know this character- that's because she doesn't actually exist. She was an addition to the script's gaggle of 6 little orphans (I believe our production had 12). (more...)

World premiere of playwright Stan Rich's Loopholes: A Pain In The I.R.S. benefits from a very game cast of talented actors performing his fun, pun- galore, shtick-filled musical. The troupe's overall enthusiasm and commitment really pull off this 90-minute piece which possesses a very Judy Garland-Mickey Rooney, 'Let's go to the barn and put on a show' vibe. (more...)
