BWW Profile: THE NORMAL HEART from Tony-Winning Play to Emmy-Nominated Film
by Matt Tamanini - Aug 25, 2014

In 1985, Larry Kramer's play 'The Normal Heart' debuted at The Public Theatre, and sent shockwaves through the theatrical community. The play was a current, powerful look at the quick-spread of the AIDS epidemic that was raviging the gay community in New York. In The New York Times, theatre critic Frank Rich said of the initial production, 'There can be little doubt that 'The Normal Heart' is the most outspoken play around - or that it speaks up about a subject that justifies its author's unflagging, at times even hysterical, sense of urgency.'

BWW Reviews: Zach Braff's WISH I WAS HERE is Cliche, Snuggles Into Your Heart; Opens Today in NY, LA
by Matt Tamanini - Jul 18, 2014

There is nothing all that original in WISH I WAS HERE, Zach Braff's new Kickstarter-funded film which sparked a minor controversy earlier this year. However, the story's familiarity doesn't distance itself from its audience, instead it serves as an opportunity for the story to snuggle its way into your heart. Themes of family, following your dreams, disappointment, and identity are, by no means, unfamiliar territory for films, especially those of the independent variety, but Braff handles these topics with such honesty and respect, that it all feels slightly revolutionary. The film's mix of humor and heart will hit the sweet spot for Braff's GARDEN STATE, SCRUBS, and even BULLETS OVER BROADWAY fans. However, I'm not completely sure that those not predisposed to liking Braff's work will appreciate the film's slightly over-saturated sentimentality. (more...)
