The Catastrophic Theatre Presents BURIED CHILD by Sam ShepardThe Catastrophic Theatre Presents BURIED CHILD by Sam Shepard
by BWW News Desk - Aug 3, 2016

Corn has begun to grow again at a remote farmhouse where the Fields have been fallow for decades. A young man returns to his family home only to discover that no one recognizes him. The time has come for a twisted secret to come to light. Equal parts dark comedy, family drama, and mysterious ceremony of renewal, Buried Child is the play that vaulted Sam Shepard into the First rank of American playwrights and won him the 1979 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

The Ophelia Project at Franklin Stage CompanyThe Ophelia Project at Franklin Stage Company
by BWW News Desk - Jul 28, 2016

The Franklin Stage Company (FSC) is thrilled to announce the next weekend of performances in its 20th season: THE OPHELIA PROJECT playing August 5th, 6th and 7th, Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 5pm.  Created by rapidly rising soprano Cree Carrico (San Francisco Opera, Fort Worth Opera, Chatutaqua Opera, etc.) and director Christopher Mirto, and performed at FSC by Ms. Carrico with pianist Jody Schum, this piece began its life as a recital at the Manhattan School of Music and was later chosen to inaugurate Opera America's Emerging Artist Recital Series at the National Opera Center in October, 2013. However, from its inception this piece stretched the boundaries of recital. Through arias from different operas of Shakespeare's Hamlet and monologues from writers spanning Shakespeare to Sarah Kane, Carrico creates a compelling, unexpected portrait of Hamlet's doomed heroine who battles for sanity as she is driven to madness by broken heart and crushed dreams. These three performances at FSC mark the first time this piece will break free of the confines of a recital format to live and breathe in a more theatrical and narrative space.   (more...)

Soho Rep. Presents Jomama Jones in World Premiere of DUATSoho Rep. Presents Jomama Jones in World Premiere of DUAT
by BWW News Desk - Jul 26, 2016

At the Connelly Theater (220 E. 4th St.), Soho Rep. welcomes the return of legendary entertainer Jomama Jones in the world premiere of Duat by Daniel Alexander Jones, running October 11-November 6. Five years ago, New York audiences and critics alike swooned over the Soho Rep. production of Jones's Radiate. David Rooney in his New York Times Critics' Pick review declared, 'Radiate glows, making it hard not to surrender to this sequin-encrusted earth mother's soulful embrace.' Hilton Als in The New Yorker said, 'What we learn from Jomama's very particular radiance is this: you don't have to reduce the musical form to a musical just to make it more digestible. If you make a good, less reductive, and more grownup show, the people will come.' (more...)
