by BWW News Desk - Mar 23, 2017

Beginning 27 April 2017, Hauser & Wirth is pleased to present the US debut of four new bodies of work by acclaimed American artist Roni Horn. The exhibition features the photographic opus 'The Selected Gifts (1974 – 2015)', a collection of 67 photographs documenting the history of gifts the artist received over a period of 41 years. Also on view are two new bodies of works on paper, The Dog's Chorus (2016) – shown here for the first time – and Th Rose Prblm (2015), as well as the new glass sculptures 'Water Double, v. 1' and 'Water Double, v. 3' (both 2013 – 2015).

BWW Review: Sierra Madre Playhouse Welcomes a Treasure-Filled BELLE OF AMHERSTBWW Review: Sierra Madre Playhouse Welcomes a Treasure-Filled BELLE OF AMHERST
by Don Grigware - Mar 21, 2017

Based on the poetry, diaries and letters of poet Emily Elizabeth Dickinson of Amherst, Massachusetts, William Luce's The Belle of Amherst opened to great acclaim on Broadway in 1976 winning a Tony for its star Julie Harris. Petite like Dickinson herself, Harris continued to play the role for 25 years, again reviving it on tour at the Laguna Playhouse in the year 2000. I am happy to say I saw both the 1976 and 2000 productions, which were indeed mesmerizing. Now at Sierra Madre Playhouse, tall and very unique Ferrell Marshall produces and stars as Emily in a brave and exciting performance through April 23. I can only say that in spite of her physical differences, she pulled me in immediately and in the end made me feel every bit as joyful as when I had seen the play before. (more...)

by Larry O'Brien - Mar 14, 2017

Willy Russell's SHIRLEY VALENTINE is running right now at 2nd Story Theatre in Warren, and I advise you to call them at once to purchase a ticket and them come back and finish reading my review.  This is the second trip to Russell-Land for director Mark Peckham and 2nd Story; last year they scored with EDUCATING RITA.  I think they're on to something.  This time Russell has created the circumstance of a housewife, who, feeling shortchanged by life, has the chance to travel to Greece and see what more there might be.
