BWW Reviews: BCT's SUNSET BOULEVARD a Standard, Flawed RetellingBWW Reviews: BCT's SUNSET BOULEVARD a Standard, Flawed Retelling
by Natalie de la Garza - Jun 18, 2015

Director and designer Colton Berry brings a solid artistic vision to Bayou City Theatrics staging of SUNSET BOULEVARD, but his conceptualizations remain better than the execution. Uneven acting and vocal performances, persistent sound issues and the price tag ($35 to $40) make this one hard to recommend. (more...)

GOD OF CARNAGE Begins 6/11 at the Hangar TheatreGOD OF CARNAGE Begins 6/11 at the Hangar Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Jun 5, 2015

To open its 2015 Season, the Hangar Theatre will present, God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton, from June 11 until June 20, 2015. This over the top comedy is directed by Hangar Theatre alum Steve Pacek, who was a crowd favorite as Seymour Krelborn in last summer's hit production of Little Shop of Horrors. God of Carnage is a comedy of manners, without the manners that is especially relatable to those who are parents. Join the cast, crew, and Hangar staff on opening night, Friday, June 12 at 8pm at the Hangar Theatre, located at 801 Taughannock Blvd, Ithaca, NY 14850 in Cass Park. God of Carnage is recommended for mature audiences. (more...)

Donmar Warehouse Announces Full Schedule, Updates for 2015 Fall SeasonDonmar Warehouse Announces Full Schedule, Updates for 2015 Fall Season
by BWW News Desk - Jun 3, 2015

Artistic Director Josie Rourke said: One of the things that most excites me about this season is the strong leading roles for women. It is a thrill to announce a season of work that features, in plays by living writers, women of the calibre and power of Zawe Ashton, Sinead Cusack, Michelle Dockery, Michelle Fairley, Genevive O'Reilly and Janet McTeer, who returns to the Donmar and the London stage. This, combined with the transfer of Phyllida Lloyd's second instalment in her trilogy of all-female Shakespeares to New York shows a programme of work in deep conversation with the lives of women and their status as actors on our stage. We continue our commitment to bringing topical and searing new plays to the Donmar with the British premiere of Christopher Shinn's Teddy Ferrara. I am particularly delighted that Dominic Cooke is returning to theatre and to his long-standing collaboration with Christopher Shinn to direct this production. On a personal note, I have long wanted to direct Christopher Hampton's superb Les Liaisons Dangereuses, and the cast we have drawn together is a testament to the brilliance of his play. As well as welcoming Janet McTeer back to the Donmar, I am thrilled that Dominic West will return to our stage in this production. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Provocative Production of ART by The St. Louis Actors' StudioBWW Reviews: Provocative Production of ART by The St. Louis Actors' Studio
by Chris Gibson - Apr 29, 2015

How many times have you heard someone say "my kid could have painted that" when referring to a particular piece of artwork. Art is something that has, and will always manage to, provoke different responses from different individuals. That's the true beauty and nature of it. Yasmina Reza's provocative script for her play ART (translation by Christopher Hampton) looks at those subjective perspectives, but it also examines relationships, and how they can become fractured when disagreements occur. It's equal parts amusing, thought provoking, and touching, and the St. Louis Actors' Studio has put together an excellent production of ART that is certainly worthy of your time and attention.
