SINK to Play Canal Cafe Theatre, 14-16 NovemberSINK to Play Canal Cafe Theatre, 14-16 November
by BWW News Desk - Oct 14, 2014

Sink is a new one-woman show written and devised by a small company of just two women - the director, Helena Middleton, and the actor, Olivia Emden. Following the recent success of other one-woman shows such as Fleabag and The Edge of Our Bodies, Sink explores similar issues yet portrayed through a vastly different lens. A narrative made up solely of anecdotes that have occurred in a bathroom, this is a one-woman show with a difference. Through dental floss, and fluoride, shower-caps and shampoo, Sink makes its audience privy to a young girl's life and her relationship with her mother, in a wholly original and unexpected way. Playing around with the idea of storytelling, Sink promises laughs, penguins, and a tender portrayal of human relations, all around a bathroom sink. A black comedy with original music composed by Bristol based music producer Jack Drewry. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Dusts Off TINTYPESBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Dusts Off TINTYPES
by Joseph Baker - Nov 6, 2014

Not too many seasons back, at Theatre Works I saw a charming review of turn-of-the-century musical numbers (by the likes of Irving Berlin and others) entitled SIMPLE MELODIES. The songs were rendered by a small but talented ensemble, and I so enjoyed it that I returned more than once - basically, because I wanted to treat friends who I knew would appreciate it as much as I did. With Theatre Memphis' TINTYPES, conceived by Mary Kyte with Mel Marvin and Gary Pearle, and charmingly directed (often with a 'knowing wink') by Kell Christie, I may just have to contact those friends once again.

Originally scheduled for October 17 and reset to almost two months later to December 6, the sudden date change sparked speculations of Lani backing out of the concert, which she recently dispelled on a primetime talk show as mere rumors.

Ask a theater lover what kind of music they like, and they will invariable say Sondheim or Andrew Lloyd Webber. Ask what they do for fun, and the answer will usually involve tickets to a play. Anyone who recognizes themselves as 'born in a trunk' will want to add Cindy Brown's new mystery novel, MACDEATH, to their reading list. As the title suggests, the light-hearted mystery thriller takes on the venerable Scottish play and the superstitions surrounding the time-worn tragedy. The book is billed as an 'Ivy Meadows Mystery' - the first of a series. Ivy is something akin to a modern day Nancy Drew - an eager young actress turned sleuth in modern-day Phoenix, Arizona.
