BWW Reviews: Group Rep Presents a Gripping STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
by Don Grigware - Jul 28, 2014

Tennessee Williams' classic A Streetcar Named Desire is revered as one of the greatest plays of the 20th century with Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski, two of the most fascinating characters in theatrical history. Written in the 40s, the play does have many dated elements, but given a taut, well-honed production, its beautifully poetic passages still inspire...and its raw passions can ignite fireworks. Now onstage at the group rep in NoHo, Streetcar may be a daring choice for this company, but under L. Flint Esquerra's caring and detailed direction and with four actors perfectly cast in the lead roles, it is something to sing about. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Chalk Rep's LADY WINDERMERE'S FAN Returns to Clark Library Grounds by Popular Demand
by Shari Barrett - Jul 28, 2014

The William Andrews Clark Memorial Library is located in the historic West Adams District of Los Angeles and houses the pre-eminent collection of Oscar Wilde materials in the world, including a typed copy of "Lady Windermere's Fan" with Wilde's handwritten notes from 1892, the year this comedy of manners was first produced.

BWW Reviews: Matthew C. Logan's Production of EQUUS is Intense and Beautifully Poignant
by Nyderah Williams - Jul 27, 2014

Director Matthew C. Logan and his stellar cast delve into English playwright Peter Shaffer's pyschodramatic play about a disturbed youth's fanatical obsession with horses. Written in 1973 and inspired by true events, EQUUS is certainly challenging material concerning the heavy themes of religion, sexuality, passion and normalism in society. The ensemble faces the material with unflinching conviction. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Versatile BECK Brings Endless Energy to Spectacular PPAC Concert
by Robert Barossi - Jul 27, 2014

In the name of full disclosure, I will admit to having no idea what to expect upon arriving at Providence Performing Arts Center on Saturday night for Beck's one-night-only appearance. Beck's songs had certainly been part of the soundtrack of my early college years, back in the mid-to-late 1990s. Since, the, though, I truthfully had no idea what he had been up to. As it turns out, he's spent the better part of twenty years honing and fine tuning his skills as a singer, musician and all around entertainer, skills which he brought out in full force in front of the large and enthusiastic Providence crowd.

BWW Reviews: The Rock Turns into a Grecian Superhero in HERCULES
by Matt Tamanini - Jul 27, 2014

Hercules, as the story goes, is the half-mortal son of Zeus, King of the Gods… or is he? The new “Hercules” movie out this week, starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as the most famous of Greek God offspring, asks the audience to question everything that they know about this millennia-old myth. The film's script asks us to wonder if Hercules is truly a demi-god or just a mercenary with good PR. But the film's look and feel presents us with a less philosophical version of the same question, is he more Superman or Batman? (more...)

BWW Reviews: CATF 2014 : UNCANNY VALLEY Uses Artificial Intelligence Technology to Display Genuine Emotion
by Johnna Leary - Jul 27, 2014

For a show heavily focusing on artificial intelligence and technology, Thomas Gibbon's Uncanny Valley displays a genuine feature of human emotion. Directed by Thomas Dugdale and set in the "not-distant future", Uncanny Valley portrays the relationship between retiring neuro-scientist Claire (Barbara Kingsley) and an artificial intelligence being named Julian (Alex Podulke). Claire teaches Julian how to speak, think and act like a human to blend into society, but when Julian unlocks some emotional and ethical questions, the creation ends up teaching his creator about life.

BWW Reviews: ACT's Three Quirky ONE ACTS Feels Like One Too Many in Total
by Jay Irwin - Jul 27, 2014

In my opinion One Act plays are an underutilized form in the theatrical world. Too short to take up an entire evening's entertainment and so they get overlooked. Thankfully ACT has chosen not to shy away from the form with their current offering, "An Evening of One Acts" and has even chosen works by some iconic American authors. And while the evening was loaded with quirky fun, two of the one acts felt as if they could have ended a few times over and ran a bit long. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Tour De Force Fabulous French Farce THE GAMESTER at Theatre 40
by Shari Barrett - Jul 26, 2014

The setting is Paris in the 18th Century with THE GAMESTER performed in rhymed couplets. But don't let the timeframe, language or fabulous costumes fool you. This story of true love, schemes, casual lusts, machinations, treachery and too many casinos feels as modern as today. After all, haven't we created whole cities and casinos galore aimed to pull in gamblers night and day? And don't we have Gamblers Anonymous for those who simply cannot stay away? (more...)

But when Christian admits he's tongue-tied with Roxanne, Cyrano gives Him the romantic words guaranteed to win her heart. With Christian's looks and Cyrano's language, it's a foolproof plan!
