American Natural History Museum to Present Margaret Mead Film Festival, 10/22American Natural History Museum to Present Margaret Mead Film Festival, 10/22
by BWW News Desk - Aug 10, 2015

WHAT 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.  (more...)

Starting on June 10, Playhouse on Park finishes its fabulous sixth season with Tony-award winning HAIR, a worldview-shattering musical that, upon its initial premiere, delivered social commentary with a punch that remains relevant to this day.

BWW Reviews: Children's Theatre Company Brings the Novel SEEDFOLKS to Life in a Mesmerizing One-Woman ShowBWW Reviews: Children's Theatre Company Brings the Novel SEEDFOLKS to Life in a Mesmerizing One-Woman Show
by Jill Schafer - Oct 9, 2014

'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.' This Margaret Mead quote greeted me upon exiting the theater after seeing Children's Theatre Company's SEEDFOLKS. I don't know if this quote is always in their lobby, or if it's specific to this show, but it is the perfect summation of this beautiful play. Paul Fleischman's 1997 novel tells the story of a vacant lot in Cleveland being transformed into a community garden from the perspective of multiple different characters. In CTC's adaptation, all of these characters and more are portrayed by one woman - Sonja Parks. She brilliantly transforms from a young Vietnamese girl, to an elderly Romanian woman, to a Guatemalan boy, and everything in between in the course of just over an hour. It's an epic journey of a neighborhood that transforms from one of fear and distrust to one that, while it might still have those things, is more deeply connected and supportive, all due to the growing of plants. A small group of thoughtful, committed citizens change the world, or at least their small corner of it. (more...)
