BWW Reviews: JOSHUA WARR Converts Cabaret Crowd Into Cult of Worshiping 'Warr'-iors at 54 BelowBWW Reviews: JOSHUA WARR Converts Cabaret Crowd Into Cult of Worshiping 'Warr'-iors at 54 Below
by Andrew Martin - Apr 12, 2015

It's almost inconceivable that Joshua Warr, one of the current cabaret scene's truest powerhouses since his award-nominated debut some seasons ago, is at once so young, so accomplished, so poised and confident, and so adept at bringing a true sense of artistic sensibility to the arena unseen since the glory days of such 1970s clubs as Reno Sweeney and The Grand Finale. But with his new show at 54 Below, he hits it out of the park at every turn. (more...)

The Artie Shaw Orchestra to Perform at Patchogue Theatre, 5/3The Artie Shaw Orchestra to Perform at Patchogue Theatre, 5/3
by BWW News Desk - Apr 9, 2015

Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts (PTPA) will present 'Let's Swing: The Artie Shaw Orchestra' on Sunday, May 3, at 3 p.m. Relive the days of the Swing Era, from 1935 to 1946, when big band swing music ruled the radio airwaves and concert halls of the United States. Born on May 23, 1910, Arthur Jacob Arshawsky, otherwise known as Artie Shaw, was an American clarinetist, composer and bandleader. Shaw became widely regarded as 'one of jazz's finest clarinetists,' and led one of the United States' most popular big bands in the late 1930s through the early 1940s. Though he had numerous hit records, he was perhaps best known for his 1938 recording of Cole Porter's 'Begin the Beguine.' (more...)

BWW Review: Mad Cow's PHILADELPHIA STORY is a Joyful Classic ComedyBWW Review: Mad Cow's PHILADELPHIA STORY is a Joyful Classic Comedy
by Matt Tamanini - Apr 7, 2015

I have to admit, I have a significant gap in my pop culture knowledge. I have never seen the movie version of Philip Barry's play THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, which starred Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Jimmy Stewart, and garnered six Academy Award nominations in 1940. While I have seen a stage production Cole Porter's musical adaptation, HIGH SOCIETY (which was also a 1956 film), it wasn't until I saw Mad Cow Theatre's production (running through April 19th) that I truly appreciated the charming wit and sophistication of this classic high comedy. Under the direction of Aradhana Tiwari, Mad Cow's cast is an exceptionally talented group that will bring a smile to your heart, and just might bring a sentimental tear to your eye. THE PHILADELPHIA STORY is the most enjoyable Mad Cow mainstage production that I have seen. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Apr 6, 2015

They were married actors. Who worked together, almost exclusively, for decades. Stage actors who chose to turn down big-money offers from Hollywood. Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne ruled Broadway, toured the nation and even played London's West End in the middle of World War II. With the Theatre Guild, they took low salaries to play in acclaimed productions of Shaw, O'Neill and Shakespeare; as well as three plays by their good friend Noel Coward. Laurence Olivier once said, 'Everything I know about acting I learned from Alfred Lunt.' A Broadway theater was named for them in 1958, and the Cole Porter musical 'KISS ME KATE' was inspired by their on and off-stage battles. Hugely famous in their time, they are now almost completely forgotten by the general public. (more...)
