BWW Review: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING Mixes Shakespeare's Classic Romantic Comedy with a Rockin' Song ScoreBWW Review: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING Mixes Shakespeare's Classic Romantic Comedy with a Rockin' Song Score
by Shari Barrett - Aug 17, 2016

Director Gloria Gifford takes her job of inspiring upcoming stars in proper stage presentation, and above all, I must commend her for making sure each actor in MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING at TU Studios understood exactly what they were saying so audience members could not only understand the words but also what was being said in terms of the dialogue's meaning. It is the first production of the play in which I could get the meaning of each line, even though the words as written were foreign to modern English. Some of the actors shared with me that Gloria demanded their line presentation and stage movements make perfect sense, and the actors responded with great care. (more...)

BWW Review: BROKEN IS A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH OF THE OUTBACK at Eternity PlayhouseBWW Review: BROKEN IS A DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH OF THE OUTBACK at Eternity Playhouse
by Brodie Paparella - Aug 4, 2016

Three lives orbit each other, each on the brink of chaos in the serendipitous pursuit of rapture. Darlinghurst Theatre Company's Broken is akin to theatre heroin; powerful in its purest form capable of transfixing in some moments and transporting in others whilst maintaining a reverent potency in word and sound. Playwright Mary Anne Butler and Director Shannon Murphy didn't cook this in a bathtub, it is effective and razor-sharp. An intertwining, drain-circling tale of a car accident romance and domestic collapse in dustbowl Australia, every element from cast to homespun sound effects brought a sense of ambient pregnancy. Broken is very much a gem that too rushed a judgement will cost the flawless experience of it. (more...)
