BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL Lacks EnchantmentBWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL Lacks Enchantment
by Katherine Waddell - Dec 9, 2015

When you hear the title A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, it is hard to not instantly recall the timeless story of Ebenezer Scrooge and the Christmas Spirits that visit him to try and turn him from his wretched ways. However, sitting in the audience of the sold out opening show for South Bend Civic Theatre's A Christmas Carol, I realized that I would not be watching that classic Christmas story with a 'South Bend adaptation' that was touted to patrons. Rather, don't expect the original story to take place in South Bend, but instead become a story within a story about… South Bend? Confusing, right? I know I was confused for the better portion of the show because while I'm sure there were good intentions, the pieces just did not come together to make a cohesive and understandable performance.

by Kaitlin Milligan - Dec 5, 2015

The Doctor's motives in 'Heaven Sent' become apparent in the Season 9 finale of DOCTOR WHO. At the end of the previous episode, we found out that The Doctor spent billions of years breaking through the wall, instead of just giving up what he knows about the hybrid. The people who wanted that information were the Time Lords, who trapped him in his own confession dial. When The Doctor returns to Gallifrey, and since he is a war hero to the people, he is able to take over Gallifrey and become president. (more...)

Playhouse Creatures Theatre Company (Producing Artistic Director Joseph W.

BWW Review: IN THE HEART OF THE SEA is Beautiful, but Depthless Whale TaleBWW Review: IN THE HEART OF THE SEA is Beautiful, but Depthless Whale Tale
by Matt Tamanini - Dec 14, 2015

In drama, there are three types of conflict: man versus man, man versus self, and man versus nature. In Ron Howard's new film, IN THE HEART OF THE SEA, Chris Hemsworth and Broadway favorite Benjamin Walker face all three types of conflicts as they battle a vengeful white whale. Loosely based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Nathaniel Philbrick, the film tells the story of the Whaleship Essex, which served as partial inspiration for the Herman Melville classic, MOBY DICK. Though Melville's novel is filled with Romantic language and rich, nuanced themes of class, obsession, and race, IN THE HEART OF THE SEA is a slick, depthless film that removes nearly all historical accuracy from this harrowing and terrifying tale. However, what the film lacks in emotion and authenticity, it nearly makes up for in visual majesty and grandeur. (more...)
