BWW Review: Cirque du Soleil Visits the World of Avatar in TORUKBWW Review: Cirque du Soleil Visits the World of Avatar in TORUK
by Harmony Wheeler - Dec 2, 2016

In its 32 year history, Cirque du Soleil never needed a defined story. The human body and artistry spoke for itself. But the company's latest production shifts gears, partnering with James Cameron to provide a sort of prequel to the 2009 film "Avatar." For its first attempt at creating a plot-driven Cirque, Soleil mostly succeeds. But believe the promoters when they tell you the acrobatics support the story, rather than vice versa. It's true. "Toruk" has all the creativity of other Cirque du Soleil shows, but as a whole it comes across as something closer to the typical arena performance - "Batman Live" and "How to Train Your Dragon" to name a few - only it's far more spectacular.

BWW Review: BROADWAY LOVES BRITNEY Does It Again at Feinstein's/54 BelowBWW Review: BROADWAY LOVES BRITNEY Does It Again at Feinstein's/54 Below
by Troy Frisby - Dec 1, 2016

Because Britney Spears grew up in the spotlight, we've seen her as a singer, an actress, a girl, a woman, and everything in between. One thing we haven't seen is Britney the Broadway star, but since that seems about as likely as the second coming of Britney and Justin, it's a damn good thing BROADWAY LOVES BRITNEY exists. On November 16, a group of Broadway performers came together at Feinstein's/54 Below for exactly what the name suggests---a deep dive into Britney's oeuvre---and, as far as Britney homages go, the show hit all quadrants, running the gamut from playful impersonations to cleverly reworked gems.
