Painter Driss Ouadahi Exhibits New Work at Hosfelt Gallery in San Francisco, 7/16
by BWW News Desk - Jun 30, 2016

SAN FRANCISCO, June 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ Hosfelt Gallery, San Francisco's premier contemporary art gallery, today announced its next exhibit starting July 16, 2016 of a new body of work by Algerian painter Driss Ouadahi. Ouadahi's work considers the political and psychological aspects of boundaries and borders and was inspired by his volunteer work helping refugees from Middle East conflicts resettle in Germany. Ouadahi's work is dominated by photo-realistic fences, cityscapes and tiled tunnels that question the myth of human mobility. His work is particularly relevant during a time when walls and borders have become prominent in both European and American politics and through actions like the recent 'Brexit' (United Kingdom exit from the European Union), partly on grounds of immigration and border control.

BWW Review: DREAMGIRLS at Dallas Theater Center
by Kyle Christopher West - Jun 20, 2016

Prior to my attendance at Dallas Theater Center's DREAMGIRLS this weekend, my familiarity with the show was based on the 2006 motion picture and the 2001 Actors Fund concert recording (not to mention the Tony Awards clip featuring Jennifer Holliday). Basically knowing only the film, I had often considered how smoothly the stage show could handle the onstage to backstage transitions, given the fast-paced musical score it followed. And, although the DTC production offers a slick, seamless interpretation of the piece, I'm afraid I left the theatre with the impression that the (gasp) movie adaptation was superior to the stage version. That being said, there are still many reasons to head to the Wyly to see this production. (more...)
