BWW Review: THE MYSTERY OF LOVE & SEX Captivates at the TaperBWW Review: THE MYSTERY OF LOVE & SEX Captivates at the Taper
by Don Grigware - Feb 23, 2016

It is refreshing to watch family dysfunction where family members, striving to make thing better, do honestly care about one another. In Bathsheba Doran's The Mystery of Love & Sex we are presented with quite a divergent platter at first glance, but as time progresses and with so many transformations in plot and character, reconnection never ceases to be a top priority. Helmed by Robert Egan, the play, though taking a tad too long to reach its resolutions, boasts some witty dialogue and substantially engrossing scenes by playwright Doran and an outstanding cast of five at the Mark Taper Forum through March 20.

BWW Review: You're Not Watching Patrick Stewart's New Show BLUNT TALK, But You Should BeBWW Review: You're Not Watching Patrick Stewart's New Show BLUNT TALK, But You Should Be
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 13, 2015

Did you know that Sir Patrick Stewart, star of stages and screens large and small had returned to television this season? No, I didn't think so. In BLUNT TALK on the Starz network, the Shakespearean legend turned Starship captain turned mutant teacher plays debilitatingly self-destructive newsman Walter Blunt. The black comedy, produced by Seth McFarland, is what would happen if you threw†HBO's THE NEWSROOM, Showtime's EPISODES, and FOX's FAMILY GUY in a blender and turned it into a half-hour TV show. It's not WAITING FOR GODOT level quality, but seeing the normally earnest actor play such a delightfully silly character is incredibly entertaining, and for some reason cathartic. (more...)
