Behind the Scenes of SEMINAR's Photo Shoot!
by BWW News Desk - Sep 27, 2011

In SEMINAR, four aspiring young novelists (Ms. Rabe, Mr. Linklater, Mr. O'Connell and Ms. Park) sign up for private writing classes with Leonard (Mr. Rickman), an international literary figure. Under his recklessly brilliant and unorthodox instruction, some thrive and others flounder, alliances are made and broken, sex is used as a weapon and hearts are unmoored. The wordplay is not the only thing that turns vicious as innocence collides with experience in this biting new comedy. Previews will begin on Thursday, October 27, 2011 at The Golden Theatre (252 West 45th Street) with an Opening Night set for Sunday, November 20 at 6:30 PM.

BWW Reviews: Thought-Provoking POOR BEHAVIOR at Taper
by Don Grigware - Sep 20, 2011

Like God of Carnage before it, ever ready to expose raw emotions to the very core, Poor Behavior, a world premiere by Theresa Rebeck is a starkly real, sometimes funny and thought-provoking play bound to create controversy. Morality, now there's the rub. Whether 'tis better to live one's life complacent and nice, or break free of goodness, just once, in the hopes of finding a viable alternative for happiness. Now onstage at the Mark Taper Forum, Poor Behavior is tautly directed, consummately acted theatre not to be missed. (more...)

SOUND OFF SPECIAL: Revivals Galore! A Retrospective With FUNNY GIRL, SUPERSTAR, GODSPELL, EVITA, ON A CLEAR DAY & PORGY & BESS
by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 8, 2011

Today, in an extension of the FLASH FRIDAY column, we are sharpening our focus on the six upcoming revivals of musicals that are soon to hit the boards in the next few months (post-FOLLIES) and battle it out for the Best Revival as the Broadway season heats up just when the weather begins to cool: the classic Jule Styne/Bob Merrill musical that originally starred that star-of-stars, Barbra Streisand - FUNNY GIRL; the groundbreaking rock opera that rewrote the theatrical rulebook thanks to young creators Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice - JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR; the hippie, flower child take on the Christ story covering some similar Biblical ground to that of SUPERSTAR, with this one being the composing debut of WICKED songwriter Stephen Schwartz - GODSPELL; another Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice collaboration that won seven Tony Awards and acted as the vehicle for Patti LuPone's blazing Broadway debut in a starring role - EVITA; the significantly reworked, revised and rewritten new version of the beautifully scored time-travel musical by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner, this time starring a male movie star crooner - ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER; and, the landmark American opera composed by the Gershwins with DuBose Haywerd - PORGY & BESS. While each and every one of these entities has a huge hit song or two that nearly everyone on the planet knows by heart - "Don't Rain On My Parade", "I Don't Know How To Love Him", "Day By Day", "Don't Cry For Me Argentina", "On A Clear Day…" and 'Summertime' included - each of these revivals also comes after a film version (or two) that, in more than a few of these cases, will be relatively difficult to top as far as expectations of many audience members undoubtedly will go. So, by taking a listen to the smash hit crossover songs from these musicals as well as looking at their respective film version's trailers - as well as a couple of surprises, too - perhaps we can glean some insight into what makes these generally pretty terrific properties so well worth reviving on Broadway, here, now, today, in 2011. Furthermore, all of this crystal ball commentary is not even taking into account the starry assortment of performers that have already been announced for these productions so far - especially with FUNNY GIRL's Lauren Ambrose and Bobby Cannavale, GODSPELL's Hunter Parrish, SUPERSTAR's lauded Josh Young, EVITA's Ricky Martin and Michael Cerveris, PORGY's Norm Lewis and Audra McDonald, as well as the leading man in what was once a leading lady's role (that of Barbara Harris) in ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER, Harry Connick, Jr.! What a tight race it is turning out to be for these new productions, particularly come Tony time in June! With rock to rhumba and borscht belt comedy to messianic hosannas and even full-out opera, seemingly every conceivable customer base is more than covered by this packed, potentially, well, awesome, season of shows - and many Broadway babies around BroadwayWorld are undoubtedly looking most forward to these six forthcoming revivals - with particularly good reason given the relative dearth of new musicals announced so far. So, let these revivals revive your flagging spirits as we leap into the 2011-2012 season with this comprehensive prospective and retrospective all about what makes them work so well in the first place and so worthy of another look!

SOUND OFF: AMERICAN HORROR STORY Makes Hell Heaven
by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 6, 2011

SOUND OFF: AMERICAN HORROR STORY Makes Hell Heaven Perhaps it should have been billed more appropriately as: Grand Guignol From The Genius Guys Who Gave Us GLEE (& NIP/TUCK, too). Any entity with the pedigree apparent in FX's new drama series AMERICAN HORROR STORY is worth a view or two and last night's premiere episode was nothing short of riveting. An explosive and absolutely terrifying corroboration of creepy historical drama, atmospheric suspense, psycho-sexual character study, semi-snuff, psychological terror, grand guignol and plain old scares, AMERICAN HORROR STORY delivered on all of the mysterious and intriguing previews that have aired for the last several months on FX - from the creator of NIP/TUCK and the co-creators of GLEE, Ryan Murphy and Brad Fulchak, this was a definite opportunity for envelopes, buttons and limits of taste, decency and sheer terror allowable on TV. On that accord, Murphy and Falchuk scored a solid field goal. Insofar as the talent assembled to tell the tale at the heart of the haunted house story - including major TV talent in the leads with Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton, as well as a seriously starry supporting cast including Broadway regulars Denis O'Hare and Jessica Lange. AMERICAN HORROR STORY delivers as a compelling character-based family drama - with the backstory of the central couple being a situation rife with possibilities - and an all-out horror show of THE SHINING proportions - and, the acerbic comedy, camp, one-liners and hot-button-pushing that makes Ryan Murphy television always entertaining is amped up to such a high level as to be far too much to take all in in one mere viewing. Even on the second look I'm not sure I've caught all of the flash-cut secrets and editing tricks employed in the impressively dynamic and complex meta-narrative employed by the various camera and stylistic techniques. If the creepy, cryptic and surprisingly quite comprehensive website is any indication whatsoever of the devilishly detailed tapestry being woven by Murphy, Falchuk and company over the course of the first season then we are certainly in for the decadent danse macabre of the decade - perhaps not since David Lynch's groundbreaking TWIN PEAKS has a TV premiere so completely enraptured and ensnared me in its wicked web of debauchery and depraved devilry. Heck - if this is Hell, throw another coal or two on the flames. (more...)

Review - If It Only Even Runs A Minute
by Ben Peltz - Aug 7, 2011

If Mike Nichols and Elaine May ever had a routine about two theatre geeks discussing their favorite unsuccessful musicals, it probably would have resembled the kind of banter that goes on between Jennifer Tepper and Kevin Michael Murphy as creators/producers/hosts of the concert series, If It Only Even Runs A Minute.  Monday night's edition, their seventh, was my third visit to their collection of one-nighters where musical theatre well-knowns and not so well-knowns join music director/pianist Caleb Hoyer to sing selections from underappreciated and/or forgotten musicals between quick histories of each production by Tepper and Murphy.  Frequently, original cast members will be on hand to give first-person accounts of the bumpy roads to opening night.

BWW EXCLUSIVE: Olivia Newton-John Talks GREASE, GLEE, XANADU & Pink And Blue For Two
by Pat Cerasaro - Aug 31, 2011

Starring in the most successful movie musical of all time is a surefire way to cement yourself in the pop culture and Hollywood pantheon, but Olivia Newton-John's participation in that generational touchstone, GREASE, was actually only the beginning of her rise to the top of the pop charts as one of the biggest entertainers in the world in the 1970s and 1980s, setting the charts afire with a string of smash hit singles such as "Physical", "I Honestly Love You", "Totally Hot", "Heart Attack" and many more. Discussing various aspects of her show business career and the entertainment legacy left by GREASE, XANADU and many of her film, television and concert appearances, Ms. Newton-John also opens up about her nearly completed construction of the $250 million Olivia Newton-John Cancer And Wellness Centre in Australia and why the cause is particularly close to her heart (literally), as well as all about co-hosting Sunday's cancer research fundraising benefit Pink And Blue For Two with football superstar Terrell Owens - an event created by her nephew Ethan promoting not only breast cancer awareness, but prostate cancer awareness, as well. As if all of that were not enough, we also shed some light on her appearances on Fox's hit musical comedy series GLEE and all about working with Jane Lynch, Ryan Murphy and company on the remake of "Physical", as well as the possibility of a return to the series in the future. Plus, all about the Broadway version of XANADU and her reaction to it on opening night, the new 2011 remix of "Magic" she has just released, her new film (complete with a newly-penned song she sings in it) A FEW BEST MEN, opinions on John Farrar's musical adaptation of HEATHCLIFFE written with Sir Tim Rice, her opinions on fellow divas such as Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Julie Andrews, Cher and Lady Gaga - as well as much, much more!

BWW Reviews: Out Front On Main Turns Back Time With JEFFREY
by Jeffrey Ellis - Aug 23, 2011

Directed by Buddy R. Jones, Jeffrey is like a nostalgic trip to the 1990s for older audience members, many of whom remember the tenor of those times intimately. Intelligently, Jones approaches Jeffrey as a period piece, ensuring that the design aesthetic for the show helps to capture the underlying confusion and questions of the advent of the AIDS era. And by casting two longtime friends - Manus and Richard Browder in the pivotal roles of Jeffrey and Sterling - he gives the production a sturdy underpinning that makes the story funnier and more poignant.
