by BWW News Desk - Apr 30, 2016

Memphis is set in the 1950s where rock 'n' roll was born: the seedy underground nightclubs, radio stations and recording studios of the musically-rich Tennessee city. With an original book and score by David Bryan (keyboard player, songwriter and founding member of Bon Jovi) and Joe DiPietro (I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change and All Shook Up!), it tells the fictional story of Huey Calhoun, a white radio DJ with a passion for R&B music and Felicia Farrell, an up-and-coming black club singer that he meets one fateful night on Beale Street. Despite the objections of their loved ones (Huey's close-minded mama and Felicia's cautious brother, a club owner), they embark on a dangerous affair. Filled with high-octane dancing, songs that perfectly capture the era, and an absorbing tale of fame and forbidden love, the show offers soaring emotion and roof-raising rock 'n' roll.

BWW Review: BEAU JEST at Theatre ThreeBWW Review: BEAU JEST at Theatre Three
by Melissa Giordano - Apr 20, 2016

There is something very special about James Sherman's play Beau Jest now playing at Theatre Three. It actually reminds me of the television shows of the 50's and 60's (I Love Lucy for example). There is no message to preach; it is just funny situations, great acting, witty dialog, and a lot of heart. (more...)

OPHELIA UNDERWATER to Run 5/13-23 at Yellow Rose Art HouseOPHELIA UNDERWATER to Run 5/13-23 at Yellow Rose Art House
by BWW News Desk - Apr 12, 2016

Ophelia had everything: the boyfriend, the future, the dress. Her life was a comedy. Until it really, really wasn't. Set underwater in the mind of Hamlet's forgotten, drowned heroine, Ophelia cross-examines her story, her existence, and most importantly - her ending. Janielle Kastner's aggressively contemporary play explores the good news, the bad news, and the ultimate cost of being a very good girl. (more...)
