BWW Review: Experience the Timeless Magic of the New Vic's THE AGING MAGICIAN
by Kristen Morale - Mar 7, 2017

In association with Beth Morrison Projects and VisionIntoArt, The Aging Magician now celebrates its off Broadway premiere with The New 42nd Street at the New Victory Theater - a theater dedicated to providing children with quality (and usually fantastic) productions in the very heart of Times Square. The Aging Magician is a sensuous piece that is as much a feast for the mind as it is a tug to the heartstrings. It is enigmatic, almost like being lost in a Tim Burton inspired circus with a need to explain the sadness of nostalgia, mixed in with the wonder of keeping those memories alive; it is a show that is perhaps more magical to adults than to children, adults who can understand the almost ethereal pull of a past one does not wish to be gone.

BWW Blog: Emma Suttell - A Bitter-Sweet Closing- as a Stage Manager in Training
by Guest Blogger: Emma Suttell - Mar 6, 2017

As I am writing this, I can already say that I miss the cast that I worked with terribly. There's nothing that makes my heart so full as working with forty-three 5-10 year olds who are all truly passionate about theatre. Closing this show- my first one learning how to stage manage- has been extremely bittersweet. Training as a stage manager has been one of the most difficult things I have ever done, and I have a newfound respect for everyone that works tech for any show, anywhere. I've student assisted two other shows, but Winnie the Pooh strengthened my knowledge in tech beyond belief! I'm so grateful to all of my production staff for everything they taught me throughout the show- they've all teched several shows themselves, and I am so grateful they passed along their tips and techniques to me!  (more...)

BWW Review: THE BODYGUARD at the Hippodrome Confounds Movie-Lovers
by Kristen Price - Mar 3, 2017

THE BODYGUARD, which officially opened last night in Baltimore at the Hippodrome, is a strange little hybrid of a musical. On one hand, it's a pretty straightforward love story about a girl falling for a boy who has been hired to protect her. On the other, it's a jukebox musical using the works of Whitney Houston as a jumping off point. Both have their positives and negatives but therein lies the problem. Since the producers were so focused on making the show both a love story AND a jukebox musical, neither part received the attention it deserved, and both parts suffered because of it. (more...)
