BWW Reviews: Rare Revival of I OUGHT TO BE IN PICTURES at the FalconBWW Reviews: Rare Revival of I OUGHT TO BE IN PICTURES at the Falcon
by Don Grigware - Oct 23, 2012

Upon its premiere at the Mark Taper Forum in 1979, I Ought To Be in Pictures was clearly Neil Simon in a new light. There were less laugh-out-loud one-liners and more meaningful dialogue dealing with tattered relationships in a realistic, true-to-life manner. Mind you, he had not yet reached the level of sophistication of the Brighton Beach trilogy and Lost in Yonkers, but it was definitely a step in that direction, employing autobiographical as opposed to fictional elements as plot. Herb Tucker is... Neil Simon. In a rarely produced revival, I Ought To Be in Pictures resurfaces at the Falcon Theatre with skilled direction and a genuinely wonderful cast through November 11.

by Jeff Davis - Nov 30, 2012

When you see a show titled Vodka, F***ing and Television, it's inevitable that one question will come to mind.

Saint Sebastian Players Present FIGMENTS 4/27–5/20 Saint Sebastian Players Present FIGMENTS 4/27–5/20
by BWW News Desk - Mar 21, 2012

To conclude its 31st season, the Saint Sebastian Players present the farce Figments, which celebrates Writer's Block and the power of the imagination, written by Billy St. John. Performances take place April 27-May 20. Did David die? Will Louise be able to stop Winston from killing Veronica? If only playwright Rick Jacobs could get past his massive case of Writer's Block…not to mention the interruptions from his upstairs neighbor Loni, who he is secretly and desperately in love with, and his typical Jewish mother, who constantly criticizes and cleans. As this farce unfolds, we meet the "figments" of Rick's imagination-his fantasy versions of himself, Loni, his mother and more-as well as the characters from his stalled play. Eventually, the people and the "figments" help Rick resolve the issues in his life-on the page and in real life. (more...)

by Jack L. B. Gohn - Feb 6, 2012

There is anger at the way men perceive women - and abuse, rape, belittle and objectify them. Owen's woman-hating fantasy may not reflect reality, but that doesn't make it harmless. That point can make the show hard to watch at moments, as it wends its way through scenes of imagined rape and murder. But it wouldn't do to look away. There's painful humor at every painful turn.

"The Story of My Life" is a two-man musical, containing music and lyrics by Neil Bartram and based on the book by Brian Hill. It is acted out in a two member cast with Joe Bishara as best-selling writer Thomas Weaver, and Jeff Horst as his best friend- small town, family bookstore owner, Alvin Kelby. It does run during the holiday season, and contains multiple references to the classic Christmas film, "It's A Wonderful Life", but director Steven C. Anderson's diamond in the rough production has themes that transcend the wistful reminiscence of this time of the year, and leave the audience moved not only to tears, but to pondering their own lives and relationships long after the curtain has closed.
