Virginia Rep's TARTUFFE to Open 2/13

Virginia Repertory Theatre announces the opening of Molie?re's clever comedy, Tartuffe, at the Sara Belle and Neil November Theatre, 114 West Broad Street on Friday, February 14 with a preview on Thursday, February 13. The show runs through March 9, 2014. This year marks the 350th anniversary of the first production of this world classic in 1664.

After debuting for King Louis XIV at Versailles, Tartuffe was banned for six years on the demand of the clergy. The story of Tartuffe, a religious hypocrite, who uses his connections to swindle his generous host, Orgon, out of his wealth, home and wife, has long been considered a comic masterpiece. This production of Tartuffe is part of the Acts of Faith Theatre Festival. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Langston Hughes' BLACK NATIVITY Lights Up Brunswick Christmas
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Dec 9, 2013

In 1961 at the 41st Street Theatre in New York City, African-American poet-playwright Langston Hughes premiered a work called Black Nativity, a collection of gospel songs punctuated by Hughes's own verse narrating the birth of Jesus. After a very short run, the only souvenir of that historic event was a rare LP recording. More than a half century later, Maine musicologist Aaron Robinson has collaborated with Bowdoin College conductor and choral director Anthony Antolini to mount a revised version of Hughes' original work. Entitled Black Nativity In Concert - A Gospel Celebration, Robinson has utilized Hughes' original texts, adding a few plus some Biblical verse, as well. For the musical settings he relied on transcribing the recording and arranging several songs himself. Performed yesterday by the seventy-five person Bowdoin Chorus, conducted by Antolini, with Roy Partridge as narrator, Jennifer McIvor on piano, and Sean Fleming on the Hammond organ, the concert in Studzkinski Recital Hall drew an overflowing crowd, many of whom were relegated to watching on lobby monitors.

BWW Blog: Mark Price of Off-Broadway's A CHRISTMAS CAROL - Truth, Ghosts, and Squishy Brains
by Guest Blogger: Mark Price - Dec 13, 2013

One of the first theater influences for me as a kid wasn't a play or musical, but a touring company of Alvin Ailey Company that came through Jones Hall in Houston Texas. By the end of the solo piece "Cry," I was in tears, baffled by how I'd just watched a three act play with no words being spoken. The shifts from love and defiance were dizzying at times, but never melodramatic. And the storytelling was rooted in such truth that carried a legacy of history of those who had danced the piece before her. Flash forward to my first trip to New York in Junior Year of High School where I took a very expensive nap during one of my first Broadway shows until a helicopter onstage woke me up. It was no fault of the actors for not holding the interest of an over-stimulated teenager, but in hindsight, I could see how technology and budget robbed the intimacy of the story being told.
