BWW Reviews: An Identity Crisis of Artistic Proportions in THE OLD MASTERS at Washington Stage Guild
by Benjamin Tomchik - Jan 7, 2014

Fans of the television shows Pawn Stars and Downton Abbey will find a lot to enjoy in Washington Stage Guild's production of The Old Masters. Simon Gray's play incorporates elements of art authentication and the survival of an aristocratic family into its plot. However, theatergoers who favor a well constructed play will not find The Old Masters as enjoyable. For a play about the identity crisis of a painting's artist, The Old Masters lacks a focal point and never quite settles on what it wants to be. (more...)

Growing up through that change is recounted in the humorous and poignant online memoir entitled 'Sophmoron,' by the author, Gerald Sedgewick. (more...)

InDepth InterView: Elaine Stritch On New Doc, ELAINE STRITCH: SHOOT ME, Plus Sondheim Stories, Broadway Memories & Much More
by Pat Cerasaro - Feb 17, 2014

Today we are setting our sights on one of the most iconic Broadway leading ladies alive and looking back at her astonishingly rich and varied career onstage and onscreen, having worked with many of the most important entertainment figures of the 20th and 21st century over her 60-year career and winning multiple awards and honors in the process - the one and only Elaine Stritch. Touching upon her time in many notable theatrical entities ranging from her early work at The New School under director Erwin Piscator to rubbing elbows with legends like Bertolt Brecht, William Inge, Noel Coward, Tennessee Williams and Marlon Brando to her unforgettable turns in Stephen Sondheim's COMPANY and FOLLIES IN CONCERT, Stritch also shines a light on her indelible performances in the plays of Edward Albee and looks ahead to a staged reading of THREE TALL WOMEN she is pursuing later this year. Most importantly, Stritch opens up about the multi-year process in creating the stunning and awe-inspiring new all-access documentary ELAINE STRITCH: SHOOT ME, directed by Chiemi Karasawa, and outlines how she dealt with cameras documenting her every move for more than two years. Additionally, Stritch comments on her memorable moments in the films of Woody Allen byway of SEPTEMBER and SMALL TIME CROOKS, as well as shares insights into some of her most famous and fabulous co-stars - Ben Gazzara, Alec Baldwin, James Gandolfini, Steve Buscemi and many more included. Plus, Stritch details her recent move back to her hometown of Detroit, Michigan, and shares details about her recent recuperation from hip surgery and ongoing battles with alcoholism as well as learning to see with only eye. As if all of that were not enough, Stritch also imparts her thoughts on why she appeals to the younger generation and how her Emmy-winning 30 ROCK role has raised awareness for her in the last decade and whether she would ever consider pursuing a reality series or new solo cabaret act. All of that, why she hates the word diva and much, much more in this career-spanning conversation with the veritable reigning queen of Broadway herself. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Book-It's FRANKENSTEIN Filled with Chilling Imagery and Befuddling Choices
by Jay Irwin - Feb 16, 2014

Sure, it's a story about a monster, but a monster that is looking for love and acceptance and his creator who's looking for power and the redemption they both seek from their mistaken paths to find their goals. Mary Shelley's novel manages all that within a simple gothic romance and David Quicksall's adaptation manages a somewhat gripping stage representation of that tale. Unfortunately while much of the staging of "Frankenstein; Or, The Modern Prometheus", currently presented by Book-It Repertory Theatre, offers chilling moments, many other choices within the show detract so much as to pull you from the story and leave it muddled.

BWW Blog: Greg Hinojosa, Artistic Director of Woodlawn Theatre - There's Much to Love in the Woods
by Guest Blogger: Greg Hinojosa - Feb 11, 2014

Into the Woods has always been one of my favorite Sondheim musicals. I love the complicated score, the mysterious, interesting character plots and of course the childhood fairy tales that we grew up hearing when we were children. I love that the 'Woods,' to me, symbolizes 'the world.' These characters are traditional in the sense that they are characters we know and love within the fairy tales, but they get tossed into a more real world after they discover that not everything they expected from their 'ever after' dream is really a Good Thing.
