BWW Reviews: Independent Film BILLY SHAKESPEARE Highlights the Writer's Dilemma
by Ellen Dostal - Sep 8, 2014

BILLY SHAKESPEARE is a spicy little independent film by Deborah Voorhees that imagines what might happen if William Shakespeare tried to make it as a writer in today's Hollywood rather than Elizabethan England. Quirky characters, compromising situations, and the kind of deadpan humor made famous in Waiting For Guffman collide with hilarious moments of camp to create a madcap world in which young Billy just can't get a break.

BWW Reviews: Hillbarn Theatre's FUNNY GIRL is Fabulous, Now Through 9/21
by Linda Hodges and Nick Hodges - Sep 5, 2014

'Hello gorgeous.' The Hillbarn Theatre in San Mateo kicked off its 2014-2015 season with the sensational Funny Girl. Based on the life of Fanny Brice, Funny Girl originally starred Barbra Streisand in the icon role of the famous vaudeville and Ziegfeld Follies legend. It was a part that catapulted her into stardom and made Streisand a household name. Hillbarn Theatre showed a lot of chutzpah in putting on a show so closely associated with a major star, but this is their 'Season of Awakening,' therefore daring, dreams and self-discovery are most definitely in the air. Debuting Executive Artistic Director Dan Demers wraps it all up with this quote from Mark Twain (by way of Demers' mother): The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why,' which certainly could be a quote about Ms. Brice.

BWW Recap: Coincidences Don't Exist for INTRUDERS
by Courtney Henley - Aug 30, 2014

Last Saturday, BBC America achieved its highest-rated Saturday evening on record, thanks to “Doctor Who” and a little new show called “Intruders.” The latter's premiere episode, which netted about 1 million viewers in total, was a lot to handle. I get that. But if, like me, you managed to get past (or even, dare I say, enjoy) the convoluted storyline and kitten murders (RIP Loopy), you were likely running to BBC America's website to watch the second episode. Those questions need answering! (more...)
