BWW Reviews: An Identity Crisis of Artistic Proportions in THE OLD MASTERS at Washington Stage GuildBWW Reviews: An Identity Crisis of Artistic Proportions in THE OLD MASTERS at Washington Stage Guild
by Benjamin Tomchik - Jan 7, 2014

Fans of the television shows Pawn Stars and Downton Abbey will find a lot to enjoy in Washington Stage Guild's production of The Old Masters. Simon Gray's play incorporates elements of art authentication and the survival of an aristocratic family into its plot. However, theatergoers who favor a well constructed play will not find The Old Masters as enjoyable. For a play about the identity crisis of a painting's artist, The Old Masters lacks a focal point and never quite settles on what it wants to be. (more...)

BWW Reviews: MEMPHIS Is An Electric, Rousing Must-SeeBWW Reviews: MEMPHIS Is An Electric, Rousing Must-See
by Jeff Davis - Dec 11, 2013

Original musicals are tough to come by nowadays. For every mammoth hit like Wicked or Book of Mormon, there's a short-lived flop like First Date or Glory Days. And then there are shows like Memphis that wind up somewhere in the middle. The show picked up 4 2010 Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score, and had a nearly three year run on Broadway. That's not bad, but judging by the current national tour currently playing Bass Concert Hall, Memphis deserved much better. With an exhilarating blues and rock score, breathtaking choreography, and more than a few astounding performers, Memphis is a massive crowd-pleaser. (more...)
