by BWW News Desk - Mar 8, 2017

The cast and creative team is complete for Objects in the Mirror, a Goodman Theatre-commissioned world premiere by Charles Smith. Directed by Resident Director Chuck Smith, Objects in the Mirror is inspired by the playwright's real-life friendship with a Liberian refugee-turned-actor, Shedrick Yarkpai-portrayed by Daniel Kyri, in his Goodman debut.

Photo Flash: Road Less Traveled Productions Presents THE MOTHERF*CKER WITH THE HAT
by BWW News Desk - Mar 7, 2017

Described as 'a high-octane verbal cage match about love, fidelity and misplaced haberdashery,' the story is about struggles with addiction, friendship, love, and the challenges of adulthood. Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean. He's also still in love with his coke-addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica. Ralph D. is Jackie's too-smooth, slightly slippery sponsor. He's married to the bitter and disaffected Victoria, who, By the Way, has the hots for Jackie. Jackie's gay cousin, Julio, tries to provide the ballast to keep total chaos at bay. (more...)

BWW Review: Rockwell Table and Stage Explodes with THE BEVERLY BOMBSHELLS
by Don Grigware - Mar 7, 2017

On Sunday evening March 5 The Beverly Bombshells exploded on the LA scene at Rockwell Table and Stage. This newly formed group that consists of Tiffany Dissette, Heather Lundtstedt O'Neill and Leah Sprecher reworks contemporary pop songs with a 40s style and all new arrangements. It's fresh, it's sassy, and its harmony is delightfully unlike anything you have ever heard. Adele's 'Send My Love' or Lady Gaga's 'Million Reasons' sung to the sound and beat of a swing song like 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Company B'? Yes, siree! These beautiful ladies have a one.of.a.kind approach laden with pizazz and gusto that takes a contemporary song and transports it back to a time when storytelling wasn't storytelling unless it poked fun at men, at seduction, at romance, at love...in both its sound and its meaning!

BWW Review: Quirky Musical Farce GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE Kills at OC's Segerstrom Center
by Michael L. Quintos - Mar 3, 2017

Genuinely one of the funniest musical comedies to ever grace Broadway, A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER easily proves quite early on---and pretty much throughout its two uproarious acts---why it won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical. Filled with hilarious sight gags, wickedly witty banter, and some of the silliest characters to ever be dropped into a musical (many of which are portrayed by one actor in a dizzying tour-de-force), the show's first national tour continues its way-too-short, week-long stop at Orange County's Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa through March 5.

Nina Simone once said "You can't help it. An artist's duty, as far as I'm concerned, is to reflect the times."

BWW Review: Damrau and Camarena Radiate Star-Power in the Met's PURITANI
by Richard Sasanow - Feb 27, 2017

The last time soprano Diana Damrau and tenor Javier Camarena appeared together at the Met, they reinvented the deadly Mary Zimmerman production of Bellini's LA SONNAMBULA and made it into something wonderful. This time around, while the duo tried their hardest, they still couldn't quite bring the company's elderly production of IL PURITANI (also by Bellini) back to life, although they came pretty close, using all the considerable star-power they could muster.

So, I'm walking through my local multiplex last year and, imagine my surprise, when I come across a poster for THE GREAT WALL, Matt Damon's giant white face taking up about 80 percent of the surface area and dwarfing China (and I'm assuming Chinese people, not that I could see them they were so small) at the bottom corner.
