Brooklyn Theatre Co. presents THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROODBrooklyn Theatre Co. presents THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD
by BWW News Desk - Feb 15, 2017

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive whodunnit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. The show is based on Charles Dickens' unfinished novel of the same name. In small town of Chesterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? His leering romantic rival, John Jasper? The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer? The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon? Or someone else even more dastardly and villainous? Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit. Rupert Holmes' award-winning play within a play solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote.  (more...)

BWW Review: Everyman Delivers a Rich Production of GREAT EXPECTATIONSBWW Review: Everyman Delivers a Rich Production of GREAT EXPECTATIONS
by Cybele Pomeroy - Feb 14, 2017

Director Tazewell Thompson, handling a tale that is heavy on narrative, guides the pliable ensemble to a performance that is dynamic, touching, amusing, lively and filled with gothic foreshadowing. Every sequence unfolds a new delight, from slapstick action to nuanced characterization to the most hilarious rendition of Hamlet it has ever been my privilege to witness. Script, direction, casting, performance and tech are each remarkable renditions of their kind. The beautiful language is retained, but made perfectly clear by action and diction. Additionally, it's heartily funny. (more...)
