by Billie Roe - Jun 22, 2015

When BroadwayWorld.com Cabaret Reviewer Billie Roe was invited to the CabaretFest 2015 Provincetown scheduled for June 4-7, it was to attend as a performer, not necessarily as a reviewer. But we couldn't resist the opportunity to have Billie at least report on some aspects of the long, event-filled weekend and record some of her impressions in something akin to a diary. Based on Billie's descriptive account here, this year's Cabaret Festival in Provincetown, MA, sounds like one of the cabaret highlights of the year. (more...)

by John James DeWitt - Jun 17, 2015

Playwright Dane Whitlock is quite fond of popular culture to the point of obsession (nay, mania!), having created shows like LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE-OKE and I TOTALLY KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST DONNA SUMMER. The names alone hint at the delightfully demented Cuisinart intellect behind StageRight's current Seattle premiere, ARE YOU THERE GOD? IT'S ME, KAREN CARPENTER. (more...)

Summer Stages: BWW's Top Summer Picks for SeattleSummer Stages: BWW's Top Summer Picks for Seattle
by Jay Irwin - May 30, 2015

With the sun out more and more (amidst all the rain, of course) the theatrical choices in the area tend to dwindle a bit. But not to worry, there's still plenty to take in. From Shakespeare to Schwartz, greasers to gay baseball players, classics to camp and Karen Carpenter there's something for everyone. After you spend your day in the sun check out what's happening indoors (or in some cases combine the sun and the shows). (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Gamm's Sublime THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES Surprises in Many WaysBWW Reviews: The Gamm's Sublime THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES Surprises in Many Ways
by Robert Barossi - Mar 12, 2015

There are some plays that are easily categorized. They fit a very specific label, nice and neat and tidy. Hamlet is a tragedy. Noises Off is a comedy. There's little room for doubt or debate. On the other hand, some plays defy definition. They challenge you to put them into a category or give them a label. When that happens, you can sometimes get a muddled, confused mess that never really works. Or, as in the case of The House of Blue Leaves, currently playing at the Gamm Theatre, you get an exciting and entertaining piece of theater that surprises in part because of just how well it works.

Tony Nominee Euan Morton Bringing I (HEART) THE CARPENTERS to 54 Below in JuneTony Nominee Euan Morton Bringing I (HEART) THE CARPENTERS to 54 Below in June
by BWW News Desk - Mar 2, 2015

Following a sold-out 2013 debut at 54 Below, Tony Award nominee Euan Morton returns to the acclaimed Manhattan nightspot to launch his newest project, I (Heart) THE CARPENTERS. Backed by the newly-formed Downey CA Collective, Mr. Morton will perform songs made famous by the all-American jazz/pop duo Richard and Karen Carpenter. With songs from composers such as Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Paul Williams, Roger Nichols, Leon Russell, John Bettis and Richard Carpenter himself, I (Heart) THE CARPENTERS is fresh take - both extremely personal and totally universal - on mid-20th Century American pop genius, designed to be an emotional trip down memory lane for some and an exciting, memory-making first meeting for others. I (Heart) THE CARPENTERS will be performed on three consecutive Monday evenings in June: June 1st at 7 PM, June 8th at 9:30 PM, and June 15th @ 7 PM. There is a $45 cover charge and a $25 food and beverage minimum. Visit 54Below.com for tickets/reservations. (more...)
