BWW Reviews: INTIMATE APPAREL Worn Close to the HeartBWW Reviews: INTIMATE APPAREL Worn Close to the Heart
by Nancy Grossman - Mar 6, 2015

INTIMATE APPAREL is one woman's story of courage and resilience set against the backdrop of a rapidly changing America in early 20th century New York City. Under the direction of Summer L. Williams, who also directed Lynn Nottage's BY THE WAY, MEET VERA STARK at the Lyric Stage Company, INTIMATE APPAREL offers a realistic depiction of the human drama inherent in the journeys of half a dozen individuals who have more in common than it first appears.

BWW Recap: Tears, Bitterness, and 'The Right Reasons' as THE BACHELOR's 'Women Tell All'BWW Recap: Tears, Bitterness, and 'The Right Reasons' as THE BACHELOR's 'Women Tell All'
by Patti Murin - Mar 3, 2015

Good morning, Bachelor friends!!! Last night ABC aired the grand Bachelor tradition that is “The Women Tell All,” and boy, did those women tell all. And by that, I mean they told absolutely nothing. Aside from the expected copious amounts of confrontation, use of the word “like,” and errant glitter that magically doesn't come off with tears, there were no big announcements tonight, like who the next Bachelorette will be, or whether Chris Soules is really the twelfth contestant on Dancing With the Stars (oh help us all). Unless you count the unveiling of Chris Harrison's romance novel (what?). In any case, we're going Buzzfeed style tonight and making this a super fun list recap. I need to save all possible brain power for next week's epic grand finale. (more...)

I want to applaud the theatre companies who pay homage to black playwrights. We're allowed to examine the psyche and social situations from the black perspective through these theatrical masterpieces. I had the pleasure of seeing The Pearl Theater's production of INTIMATE APPAREL written by Lynn Nottage, and I was moved by the seamless writing and performances by the cast. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Women's Fate in War: RUINED at EverymanBWW Reviews: Women's Fate in War: RUINED at Everyman
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Feb 9, 2015

There is much more to the play than Mama's turn as a sort of Auntie Mame-of-the-Ituri-rainforest. It is also the unflinching story of how, in the words of Salima, men wage war "on [women's] bodies." Particularly in contemporary warfare rape is a form of combat, aimed at destroying societies. The scene in Act Two where Salima describes what happened to her is not only uncomfortable, it is a display of raw theatrical power and a tutorial about the mechanics of social destruction in the wake of rape.

by Samantha Reichstein - Feb 8, 2015

This week's episode, “Cubbies”, highlights how each girl is functioning in her new, rather calm, role. Whether it be experiencing gruesome interviews, figuring out the romantic and platonic side of a duet partner, struggling to find true passion, or just being an honest, AA member; Shoshanna, Marnie, Hannah, and Jessa seem to be growing up (in their own way) and (surprisingly) accepting the plot twists.

BWW Reviews: END OF THE RAINBOW Falls Short at ICTBWW Reviews: END OF THE RAINBOW Falls Short at ICT
by Don Grigware - Feb 23, 2015

When I first heard that Peter Quilter's End of the Rainbow, the story of the demise of Judy Garland during her gig in December, 1968 at Talk of the Town, London, was going to be produced at ICT, Long Beach, I remember thinking 'They'd better get a super dynamic actress. Not everyone can play Judy Garland!' Whether you believe that the events that happen onstage really did occur seems irrelevant in ICT's production; what is all wrong is the casting. Unfortunately, Gigi Bermingham, a fine actress/singer, just does not make the cut. Within five minutes of her first entrance, I saw a woman playing an actress/singer with emotional problems, but that woman might as well be herself; it is not Judy Garland. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Ten Thousand Things' Sparsely Lovely THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN Gets Right to the Heart of the Sweet and Inspiring StoryBWW Reviews: Ten Thousand Things' Sparsely Lovely THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN Gets Right to the Heart of the Sweet and Inspiring Story
by Jill Schafer - Feb 16, 2015

No one does musicals like Ten Thousand Things does musicals. And even though it defies everything we know about musical theater, after seeing a TTT musical I think that maybe that's the way musicals should always be done. The music, like everything else about the show, is stripped down to the very basics, extraneous layers removed to reveal the very heart of the matter. A one-man orchestra provides the minimal accompaniment, and the small cast imperceptibly transitions from speaking to singing, so that you can't even tell where songs end and begin, it's just all one seamless story. And above all else, Artistic Director Michelle Hensley and all of the artists at Ten Thousand Things are storytellers. Whether it's Shakespeare or a classic American musical, they share the story in a pure and unadorned way so that all of their audiences, whether prisoners or seasoned theater-goers, can hear it and see themselves in it. One such masterpiece is their latest musical venture, THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN, a reprise of their very first musical venture 15 years ago. It's lovely, spirited, sweet, funny, moving, heart-warming, and real. (more...)

Last week we followed Jake and Annie as they try to throw off the investigation of a hate crime, which they started, by carrying out another hate crime on themselves. We got some hilarious scenes out of the return of Jessica St. Clair as their snobby neighbor, as she staged a 'care-frontation' and led the investigation into all the hate crimes in the building. Meanwhile, Dennah and Gil battled for the only remaining plus 1 invitation for Jake and Annie's wedding after an influx of additional guests. Kay, having bowed out of the competition, ends up needing the plus 1 invitation because it turns out she has a girlfriend!
