American Natural History Museum Opens Margaret Mead Film Festival TodayAmerican Natural History Museum Opens Margaret Mead Film Festival Today
by BWW News Desk - Oct 22, 2015

With the theme 'Thresholds,' the 2015 Margaret Mead Film Festival presents stories that take us across boundaries and illuminate the depth and breadth of human existence: Uruguayan ballet dancers ignite stages at home and abroad; an Austrian village becomes a model for a Chinese utopia; an Indian girl sold into marriage escapes to become a thriving businesswoman; young adults with autism in Ohio experience their first dance. Such stories are emblematic of the legacy of Margaret Mead, whose pioneering work as an anthropologist at the Museum inspires us to consider what it means to cross thresholds into new cultures today.

BWW Review: Theatre UCF's Talented HAIR Cast 'Trips' Back to 1968BWW Review: Theatre UCF's Talented HAIR Cast 'Trips' Back to 1968
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 18, 2015

Since its Off-Broadway debut in 1967, HAIR has become a touchstone for musical theatre fans with a fondness for the decade's counter-culture revolution. Having won both a Tony and a Grammy, there is no doubt that this musical, which defies nearly every theatrical convention, has become as important a part of the genre's cannon as any of the Golden Age's classics. However, it is a show that I have just never 'got.' Perhaps I am too square to appreciate the flower-power sensibility, or too straight-laced to understand the era of psychedelic drugs and free love. Nonetheless, the score by Galt MacDermot (music) and James Rado and Gerome Ragni (lyrics) contains some of the theatre's best 'rock' songs with pop cross-overs 'Aquarius,' 'Good Morning Starshine,' and 'Let the Sunshine In.' Theatre UCF's production of 'The American Tribal Love-Rock Musical,' which runs through October 25th, might not have been able to make me appreciate the show's trippy conceit, but it did confirm that the program has just as much talent as nearly any of Central Florida's professional theatres.
