BWW Review: Underdone Gem WORKING Shows Off the Working Class at Showtunes
by Jay Irwin - May 9, 2016

But thankfully the folks at Showtunes have done what they do and dusted this one off for a weekend so more people can discover how wonderful it is. (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Erin Kong - May 27, 2016

Imagine: your childhood hero, the woman who coined one of your 8-year-old self's favorite songs, holding your hand in front of hundreds of people, the renowned Phoenix Symphony gushing in gorgeous melodies behind you.

BWW Blog: Allison Rambler - Movie Musicals: Stage Versus Screen?
by Guest Blogger: Allison Rambler - Jun 16, 2016

There's no getting around it: Broadway is expensive. For a broke soon-to-be college student like myself, the prospect of scrounging up enough dollar bills to purchase a ticket to Something Rotten is a daunting one. So what are those of us without the means to experience professional theatre to do? In some cases, all we have to do is switch on the television or take a trip to the movie theater to see a musical come to life. (more...)

BWW Review: Annex's PUNY HUMANS Drones on with Not Much to Say
by Jay Irwin - Apr 25, 2016

Slice of life plays, like "Puny Humans" currently playing at Annex Theatre, are difficult at best especially when focusing on one specific sub-culture such as Comic-Con attendees. You need something new to say about your subjects, you need to make your subjects empathetic and you need an over-arching reason for us to be looking at this particular slice of life. Unfortunately writers Bret Fetzer and Keiko Green fail at all three of those elements making their 2 hour and 45 minute show (yeah, you heard me) drone on. (more...)
