BWW Review: The MUNY'S Spectacular 42ND STREET
by Chris Gibson - Jul 9, 2016

If you missed The Muny's production of 42nd STREET, you missed a show that was an absolutely perfect fit for the wide open spaces its stage presents. The original Warner Bros. 1933 pre-production code film was a blend of behind the scenes melodrama and onstage eye-candy. It gave depression era audiences a chance to escape from their worries with Lloyd Bacon's direction of the story and Busby Berkley's show-stopping musical direction. And, that's the caliber of entertainment you'll find on stage at The MUNY. It's an extravaganza that verges on pure spectacle, with that enormous canvas worked to perfection; a snappy mix of what made the movie and the Broadway version so successful. (more...)

BWW Blog: Tara Folio - Giulia Dunes's Balancing Act
by Guest Blogger: Tara Folio - Jul 8, 2016

At the beginning of the summer, I thought that moving from Atlanta to New Hampshire was a huge feat, but my "journey" is chump change compared to the distance Giulia Dunes has traveled in order to be at Interlakes this summer. Giulia Dunes is a native of Holland, who is quickly learning how to become a native New Yorker. This summer she is taking on the huge task of Assistant Directing a show that she is performing in, while simultaneously rehearsing for her lead role in the next show of the season. Did you follow that? Me neither. Let me break it down. Giulia is performing as "Missy" in 9 to 5 while rehearsing for her role as "Ulla" in The Producers. The constant character switch is enough to give anyone an identity crisis, and on top of that, English is not Giulia's first language. I had to sit down and talk to her to find out how she handles all of this insanity and chaos with such grace.  (more...)

BWW Interview: Tim Rice And Brett Smock of FROM HERE TO ETERNITY at Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival
by Gianluca Russo - Jul 5, 2016

Legendary lyricist Tim Rice's new musical, From Here to Eternity, is currently playing at Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival at the Merry-Go-Round Playhouse through July 20. Based off the 1951 novel of the same name by James Jones, the show tells the story of a group of U.S. Army soldiers during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. From Here to Eternity, as Rice tells us via a phone interview, is much different than some of his past musicals including The Wizard of Oz and Beauty and the Beast. 'It's not like Aladdin or The Lion King,' he explains. 'The material is very different and more mature than those shows. It's a very complex story. There is a lot going on in it but that is what makes it such a beautiful show.' (more...)

BWW Review: K ARTS BALLET Sets A New Standard for Excellence
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 13, 2016

The maxim 'Go big or go home' holds. That's one thing that can be said for Korea National University of Art's 'K Arts; Rising Stars of Korea Gala': they dance big; Bolshoi big.

BWW Blog: Hannah Seewald - To Buffet or Not to Buffet? That is the Question...
by Guest Blogger: Hannah Seewald - Jul 13, 2016

For the past two weeks, I attended a summer college program and was able to get a little preview of what college life may be like. While my time at the university was brief and while being a college student is still three years away, I couldn't help but notice a disturbing correlation between the stereotype of the "freshman 15" and the requirement for students, especially freshmen, to purchase expensive dining plans that are often unhealthy. Although students may also benefit from the ease of having the plan, on a college budget they typically wouldn't be able to eat as much as they would at a buffet-style dining hall.  (more...)
