BWW Reviews: INTIMATE APPAREL Worn Close to the HeartBWW Reviews: INTIMATE APPAREL Worn Close to the Heart
by Nancy Grossman - Mar 6, 2015

INTIMATE APPAREL is one woman's story of courage and resilience set against the backdrop of a rapidly changing America in early 20th century New York City. Under the direction of Summer L. Williams, who also directed Lynn Nottage's By the Way, MEET VERA STARK at the Lyric Stage Company, INTIMATE APPAREL offers a realistic depiction of the human drama inherent in the journeys of half a dozen individuals who have more in common than it first appears.

by Richard Sasanow - Mar 5, 2015

It has been a very good year in New York for the Mozart of Swedish baritone Peter Mattei. He helped open the season with the Met's new production of LENOZZE DI FIGARO, receiving a splendid reception for his performance as Count Almaviva, which brought new insights to a role that frequently gets lost in the shuffle of the large ensemble. Then came hiss DON GIOVANNI, which finishes up its run on Friday March 6, aptly called “commanding” by The New York Times. (more...)

The Life of BERNIE ARNOLD To Be Celebrated Tonight in NashvilleThe Life of BERNIE ARNOLD To Be Celebrated Tonight in Nashville
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 3, 2015

It's cloudy and grey in Nashville today, which is perhaps fitting as people from all over gather to mourn the passing of Bernie Arnold, the matriarch of the first family of Nashville theater. But being mournful is the last thing you can come up with when remembering Bernie and her late, devoted husband, Henry Arnold (known as 'Buddy' to his legions of fans, students and admirers). Rather, any memory of the revered pair of theatrical talents is limned with joy, amazement and unbridled admiration. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Playhouse's VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE Would Make Chekhov GiggleBWW Reviews: Playhouse's VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE Would Make Chekhov Giggle
by Joseph Baker - Mar 23, 2015

I wonder if Jackie Nichols is providing on-site psychiatric help for those involved in the repertory presentations of Anton Chekhov's THE SEAGULL and Christopher Durang's VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE at Playhouse on the Square. Surely the veteran Irene Crist, performing double duty as Director of both the uber-heavy Chekhov piece and the giddy Durang parody, is on a schizoid seesaw as she veers from the serious to the silly - and the same might be said from the cast members who swap costumes and take their characterizations from one play to the next. Having just seen THE SEAGULL last week, I was eager to see how Durang's TONY-winning play would parlay all that Chekhovian talk about artists and pseudo-artists into something more laughter-inducing. However, rest assured that the talents involved in both plays rise (or fall, as it were) without any difficulty. (more...)

Rigby talks about her love of this role and other theatrical delights. Why is the Cat in the Hat a favorite role of yours? I saw you play it at your theatre many years ago. Although the Cat seems to create chaos… His main objective in this play is to help 'Jojo' understand that his imagination and creativity are wonderful!!! As well as valuable, and practical!

by Courtney Henley - Mar 14, 2015

Let's quickly recap last week's leg of the Race: Hayley and Blair clearly don't like each other, as evidenced by Hayley's ridiculously rambling complaints about Blair not listening; poor Harley & Jonathan can't catch a break and come in last - but it's a non-elimination leg (!!!); Matt and Ashley got engaged; and drag is as entertaining as we always thought. This week clearly has a lot to live up to entertainment-wise. But this is THE AMAZING RACE, so there's no doubt in my mind that they will succeed. Too bad the same can't be said about all the teams... (more...)

BWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis' THE BOY FROM OZ - Sparkles Aren't Just for July 4thBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis' THE BOY FROM OZ - Sparkles Aren't Just for July 4th
by Joseph Baker - Mar 13, 2015

There was a time when it seemed as if any talent contender in a beauty pageant would lay into 'Don't Cry Out Loud' (later, Dolly Parton's 'I Will Always Love You' seemed to supplant it). It crept out of every radio station ad nauseum. Its almost iconic 'ear candy' status rendered it cringe-inducing, as far as I was concerned. Moreover, its composer and interpreter, Australian Peter Allen, was not the kind of performer I enjoyed - I prefer my talent without the 'over the top' exclamation point; he belonged, to my way of thinking, to the Liberace/Barry Manilow/Liza Minelli kind of performer. (Admittedly, I have a number of friends who take issue with this and who, rope in hand, would gladly pursue me if lynching were acceptable.) Their 'showmanship' and 'over the top' self-promotion proved exhausting. However, the intervening years have reconciled me to Allen's music, and THE BOY FROM OZ. with a book by Martin Sherman and Nick Enright and a parade of Allen songs, has, in Theatre Memphis' latest offering, even somewhat endeared me to him.

Heartbeat Opera Presents the ONE ACT FESTIVAL, 3/18-22Heartbeat Opera Presents the ONE ACT FESTIVAL, 3/18-22
by BWW News Desk - Mar 11, 2015

Heartbeat Opera is a new company intent upon re-imagining opera in intimate spaces for a new generation. Employing a minimalism that allows the emotional integrity of the music to shine through, the company's work focuses on the body of the singer and the visceral power of the music. Co-Artistic Directors Louisa Proske and Ethan Heard, who trained together in the Directing program at the Yale School of Drama, are committed to nurturing the actor in every singer they work with. The company creates productions of classics and new pieces that are daring and visceral—productions that manifest the emotional grandeur and theatrical power of opera with minimal means. Heartbeat's one-act festival presentation of György Kurtág's Kafka-Fragments, directed by Heard, and the New York premiere of Jacques Offenbach's Daphnis & Chloé, in a new English translation directed by Proske, marks this young company's debut. Heartbeat Opera's resident music ensemble Cantata Profana, described by The New York Times as “a stylish early music ensemble,” will provide musical accompaniment. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Penumbra Theatre's BY THE WAY, MEET VERA STARK - A Timely (and Very Funny) Look at Black Actors in HollywoodBWW Reviews: Penumbra Theatre's BY THE WAY, MEET VERA STARK - A Timely (and Very Funny) Look at Black Actors in Hollywood
by Jill Schafer - Feb 8, 2015

In By the Way, MEET VERA STARK, now playing at Penumbra Theatre as part of their 'Womansong' season, the title character is a black actress in 1930s Hollywood who gets her big break playing a loyal slave in an antebellum Southern melodrama. She imbues the stereotypical role with as much humanity and depth as possible, and so begins a long and successful career, until she mysteriously disappears from the spotlight. Vera is a controversial figure because on the one hand her characters perpetuate the stereotypes seen in movies, but on the other hand she makes her characters as real as possible and has built a successful career for herself and opened doors for black actors in Hollywood. The play examines these issues in a funny, entertaining, innovative way, jumping across time and using video of Vera's first movie. (more...)

BWW Recap: Jay (and Phil and Luke) Suffer Separation Anxiety on MODERN FAMILYBWW Recap: Jay (and Phil and Luke) Suffer Separation Anxiety on MODERN FAMILY
by Matt Smith - Feb 5, 2015

Hey, all. Hope you enjoyed your short, mid-winter hiatus, and now the TV gods have rewarded our suffering by giving us a full month of new episodes! That's right, new episodes — one every week this month! Let the rejoicing begin! Here we go with the first one up: After Gloria (and the allergist) suspects Joe's allergic to Stella, she's sent away to live with Mitch and Cam for a week, much to Jay's chagrin. He's overly attached to the dog, and feels like he's lost her to Cam. (Some fantastic one-liners in their conversation while Cam's at the dog park, though they may not have had to do with the dog — haha!) Jay tries to win her back in several ways, one being the check-up in the aforementioned phone call, the other being a particularly hilarious scene where he cooks his baby a steak dinner — “You don't know what I'm competing with over there,. Cameron's wooing her with belly rubs, jewelry, kisses on the mouth…” See, I know Jay's over-affection for the dog (especially over his family) may seem a bit — nay, a lot — irrational, but Ed O'Neill plays this irrationality so well that you laugh at what he says rather than reprimand what he does.

This week's episode, “Close-Up”, shows the aftermath's aftermath of Adam and Hannah's breakup. Though at first Mimi Rose seemed like our own personal enemy—well, anyone's who was rooting for Hannah and Adam to survive—it's hard to feel bitter about Adam finally looking happy. He has motivation, he's gleaming from ear to ear, and for that reason, I guess Mimi can stay? (more...)

The grip of a bitter, Arctic chill may be gripping much of the country tonight, but the heat is on in Gotham City when the circus comes to town. Tonight, episode 16, “The Blind Fortune Teller,” weaves several tales of family, passion and survival. We may have met the young, homicidal maniac who will grow up to be The Joker – or Jerome may be just a teenager with a creepy laugh. Barbara Kean is trying to reenter Jim Gordon's life but now she has competition from Dr. Thompkins. Fish Mooney continues to show her tenacity even as an underground prisoner and Penguin shakily takes the reins of her club.

It's V-day on MODERN FAMILY, and what does that mean? The return of Clive and Juliana, of course! The alter-ego's fourth appearance (I don't believe Phil and Claire have brought them back since S3) may easily be one of their best, if not entirely because of the execution of this plot. At the start, Phil wants to bring back Clive and Juliana, but Claire doesn't. So, Phil drops the gag, and goes as himself for Valentine's. But it's quickly revealed that Claire's resistance was a ruse — she just wanted to separate herself from her sexier doppleganger. So, the night ends up being Phil and Juliana — brilliant! Claire's at her naughtiest and Phil's just… Phil. A pairing you can't help but laugh at! (more...)
