BWW Review: Outstanding ALL THE WAY Stirs at South Coast RepertoryBWW Review: Outstanding ALL THE WAY Stirs at South Coast Repertory
by Michael L. Quintos - Sep 19, 2016

Right at the start of Robert Schenkkan's mesmerizing Tony Award-winning play ALL THE WAY---now playing in an outstanding new production at Orange County's South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa through October 2---actor Hugo Armstrong is introduced in what would become one of the most powerful, fiery acting performances I have witnessed on this very stage. Commanding, and yet remarkably relatable without ever traversing caricature, Armstrong deftly portrays one of American History's most complex leaders, our 36th President, Lyndon B. Johnson. Armstrong's powerhouse portrayal is the explosive epicenter of a richly dense, dialogue-heavy drama that recounts the rocky 11-month period leading up to Johnson's re-election as the leader of the world's most powerful nation. The play spends its entirety focusing on this contentious time which finds Johnson pushing for the passage of the Civl Rights Act---which itself incites a tug-of-war between his longtime pro-segregation Dixiecrat friends and the African-American community lobbying for rights that have been long overdue.

BWW Review: World Premiere BIG SKY Examines How the Truth Shall Set You FreeBWW Review: World Premiere BIG SKY Examines How the Truth Shall Set You Free
by Shari Barrett - Jun 20, 2016

The World Premiere of BIG SKY written by Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros and brilliantly directed by John Rando (Tony and Outer Critics Award winner for Urinetown) at the Gil Cates Theater at the Geffen Playhouse fits in nicely with the theme of the Geffen's upcoming 'Moments of Truth' season as revelations spoken by each cast member finally allow them to drop all pretense and work together toward a goal for their common good. And while the ending seems a bit obscure at first, listening to everyone talking about it as they were leaving the theater convinced me that something thought-provoking had just been shared with all of us.

BWW Review: THE NETHER Disturbs and Delights at the AlleyBWW Review: THE NETHER Disturbs and Delights at the Alley
by Alexander Garza - May 20, 2016

THE NETHER is a chilling tale about how the division between technology and our lives begin to blur, and the ethical consequences that result when access to this technology fall into the wrong hands. Engaging performances from an all-star cast, unique character development, notable set and lighting designs, and intricate storytelling had me on the edge of my seat for its 85 minute run time.

Lexington, KY—Appalachia is known for its distinct voice and unique culture, and its long tradition of folk art, storytelling, and music has made the region a creative hotbed. Collectors have long sought work from the weavers of the Appalachian Craft Revival as well as from modern potters and glass blowers from towns like Berea and Asheville. Appalachia's strong oral tradition, where rhymes and stories continue to be passed from one generation to the next, has led to a flourishing literary community boasting best-selling novelists like Lee Smith, Silas House, Ron Rash, and Sharyn McCrumb. Likewise, Appalachia's influence on music ranges from the “Mother of Folk” Jean Ritchie to the “Father of Bluegrass” Bill Monroe. (more...)
