by BWW News Desk - Aug 31, 2016

Kevin Starr says the new memoir by Monsignor Harry G. Schlitt is 'slyly humorous, engaging and illumined with lightning bolts of religious insight.' Add to that encounters with Paul Lynde, James Brown, Joan Crawford, assorted cardinals and a handful of popes, including one emeritus, set against the backdrop of world capitals, and you've got a social historic narrative depicting the epic journey of a Catholic priest through changing mores and contemporary life.

BWW Review: Fantastic Z's PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Provides Hot Kitschy HilarityBWW Review: Fantastic Z's PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Provides Hot Kitschy Hilarity
by Jay Irwin - May 27, 2016

I'll admit I'm quite picky and protective about the works of Charles Busch. He's one of my favorite authors with his brilliant ability to tell a well thought out story through the kitschy lens of 40's, 50's and 60's pop culture. I've been fortunate enough to see the master himself perform his own works three times. I've only ever seen a local production attempt one of his works once before (a dreadful bastardization of “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom” that need never be mentioned again). So when I heard that Fantastic Z was performing his most well known work, “Psycho Beach Party” AND it was opening on my birthday I thought this could either be a wonderful thing or the universe playing a cruel joke. Well lucky for me (and for all of you) the folks at Fantastic Z and director Kyle Baiz must have as much love and respect for the piece as I do as they managed a fun and frothy, pitch perfect production.

“I . . . am a survivor,” Lisa Jason announces solemnly near the beginning of her poignant new cabaret show, Bullied to Beautiful, which premiered in its present incarnation last Wednesday night (it originally debuted last October at the Metropolitan Room) at the Laurie Beechman Theatre. Uprooted at seven from Long Island to a small, homogenous, anything-but-friendly town on Cape Cod, Jason encountered relentless physical and verbal abuse at the hands of “blue-eyed, blonde-haired” kids “with alligators on their shirts.” (more...)

BWW Review: A Deluge of RAIN Pours Into the Old GlobeBWW Review: A Deluge of RAIN Pours Into the Old Globe
by Don Grigware - Apr 4, 2016

You cannot beat the Old Globe Theatre for its audacity in mounting the challenging musical Rain, based on a short story by W. Somerset Maugham. Rain was made into three separate films, a silent in 1928 starring Gloria Swanson, and then in 1932 starring Joan Crawford as Miss Sadie Thompson, and finally in 1953 Rita Hayworth assumed the role of the prostitute stranded on the South Pacific Island of Pago, Pago in 1924. This much anticipated musical version with book by Sybille Pearson and music by Michael John LaChiusa is the second time Rain has been performed onstage, the first being a play in 1922. For the entire cast and creative team in San Diego this enterprise has been enormous. It is truly an outstanding ensemble headed by Eden Espinosa as Sadie, and the set designed by Mark Wendland is by itself worth the price of admission. (more...)
