BWW Review: Splashy West Coast Premiere of THE BOY FROM OZBWW Review: Splashy West Coast Premiere of THE BOY FROM OZ
by Don Grigware - May 3, 2016

Once in a great while an extraordinary performer comes along, one that not only moves us, but also affects meteoric changes within our culture. Peter Allen, born Peter Woolnough in 1944 in Tenterfield, New South Wales, Australia and who died young in 1992, was one such mega-talented singer/dancer/musical composer, who appealed to a wide audience.Not at first, mind you; it took a few years in the 60s for him to realize his bisexuality and to understand who he was.

BWW Reviews: ASSASSINS at SRO is Rousing Ammunition for Thought!BWW Reviews: ASSASSINS at SRO is Rousing Ammunition for Thought!
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Jul 15, 2015

If you are socially conscious or have some type of social media account, you are well aware of the social injustices that seem to flood the timelines. In this past year, we have witnessed young black men assassinated at the hands of police officers as well as a massacre in Charleston, South Carolina where a deranged racist killed nine parishioners at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Hashtags such as #Handsupdontshoot and #BlackLivesMatter have become the popular catch phrases in the juggernaut of social media. I know you are asking, 'What in the hell does this have to do with ASSASSINS the musical?' This show addresses so much more than the psychopathic motives of the nine assassins; it makes one question the gun control laws of then and now. Going into the theatre, I was excited to see a musical that I love and know very well, but my thoughts changed immediately at curtain call. (more...)

BWW Reviews: DEAD SIMPLE, New Alexandra Theatre Birmingham, June 29 2015BWW Reviews: DEAD SIMPLE, New Alexandra Theatre Birmingham, June 29 2015
by Jenny Antill - Jun 30, 2015

Peter James is synonymous when referring to crime fiction. Following the acclaim received by the stage adaptation of A Perfect Murder last year, Dead Simple is the next novel to receive the same treatment (adapted by Shaun McKenna). The book was an overnight sensation and is now a number one best-seller so it was clearly an obvious choice for the producers. Based on James' research, it seems that the vast majority of people fear fear itself. Breaking this down further, the fear of being alone and in this story's case, being buried alive. This is a seemingly universal fear that James experienced head on when writing this book! (more...)
