BWW Recap: THRONES Brings Death and Destruction in 'The Battle of the Bastards'
by Jessica Naftaly - Jun 20, 2016

We're just one episode away from the final episode of Season 6 of Game of Thrones and the penultimate episode entitled “The Battle of the Bastards” premiered last night. Despite what the promos had us believe, we got not one, but two battles this episode, and it was certainly an episode jam packed with death, gore, and violence. All three things we're quite used to on Thrones! Episode 9 of this show has become known amongst its viewers and creators as the big one. It's usually the episode where everything comes to fruition, the climax of the series that has everyone cheering and applauding the show immediately after for its genius and shock. Last year we had “Hardhome,” which was a direct departure from the books and gave us death and destruction, only to have the Night King lift his arms and raised the dead. However, this episode, despite being totally epic in scale and stunning visually, lacked a certain complexity, integrity, and dimensionality that made episodes like “Blackwater” back in Season 2 so rich and exciting. “The Battle of the Bastards” was entertaining and a feat of direction, cinematography, and scale, for sure, but its predictability, cluttered circumstance, and ever so confusing character choices and motivations made the episode suffer as a whole.  (more...)

'Sometimes in this business, it can seem you work and work and you aren't seeing results right away. Then all at once, everything comes to fruition at once, and that is a major boost to our company morale.

HOAX, an experiential theatre production and second collaboration between Baltimore based playwright Annelise Montone and actor/magician Brian M. Kehoe, will premiere in July 2016 with tickets on sale July 1st.  Mr. Kehoe plays the role of notorious con artist, Maxwell Fink, whose recent reformation (prompted by demonic influence) has scared him into "coming clean" and spilling the secrets of some of the most famous hoaxes, cons and scams of history.  But does Mr. Fink's not-so-lovely assistant, Sarah Swanson, also wish to "educate the doubting public"?  Or is there something more sinister at work?

BWW Review: The Phenomenal Force of THE FANTASTICKS at Monomoy Theatre
by Kristen Morale - Jul 31, 2016

Arriving on the Monomoy stage under the direction of Alan Rust, The Fantasticks is the first production of this show I have seen, and I believe it to be the most utterly captivating production that has been on this theater's - rather any I have seen this summer - stage in quite some time. This is not only because of the rather basic but wonderful plot of a boy falling in love with a girl, being torn apart by no obstacles but themselves and then brought back together through what seems like an almost realized fate. It is not just because of the beautiful music provided by a very talented pianist and harpist - music which accompanies this story that teeters between our reality and fiction. (more...)

BWW Interview: Elza van den Heever Takes on Beethoven's Leonore in FIDELIO at Caramoor and It's 'No Joke'
by Richard Sasanow - Jul 27, 2016

When South African soprano Elza van den Heever made her debut at the Met, as Elizabeth I in Donizetti's MARIA STUARDA, it was something that was totally memorable in every way--not only for her intelligent and gorgeous bel canto singing but for the lurching gait that helped show her character as unbalanced. What does she have in mind for her role debut as Leonore, in Beethoven's FIDELIO, at the Caramoor Festival? (more...)

BWW Review: HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD, Palace Theatre, 27 July 2016
by Marianka Swain - Jul 27, 2016

During the recent Ghostbusters furore, enraged opponents claimed the movie would ruin their childhood. As someone who grew up with the Harry Potter book series - preparing for GCSEs while the characters stressed over O.W.L.s - I can happily declare that this affectionate, spellbinding work only enhances that treasured experience. It's both nostalgic and thrillingly new, a smartly crafted love letter to J.K. Rowling's invention and to theatre itself. (more...)

by Herbert Paine - Jul 20, 2016

Arizona Broadway Theatre's staging of SHREK THE MUSICAL exceeds expectations. Mace Archer has gone beyond the norm, directing something more than a lively and exhilarating show.

BWW Interview: MONSTAH BLACK, The Interview. Part II
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 14, 2016

Well, yeah. I guess I am self-made. Because - thinking in terms of what my goals have been all my life - I've had very specific ideas around what I've wanted to do since I was about three. I can remember back to the day, the time of day, what I was doing, when the light bulb went off and I said to myself, "That's what I want to do." I pretty much focused on that. I said it on that day and I've gotten to the point where I'm in the middle of it happening. It's hinting towards what I see, what my goals have been. But it's not out of reach. It could happen. It's just a matter of putting the time into that and making it happen. It has happened already and now it's about allowing it to happen again and maybe getting more exposure to let it expand. My earliest inspiration is pretty much what helped shape myself into what I am. I can pinpoint who those people are and at some point I allowed it to… I let those landmarks inspire, I held onto them, and continued to step forward as the man. But it pretty much started with the Sonny and Cher show. (more...)

BWW Interview: Declan Bennett on JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR
by Marianka Swain - Jul 14, 2016

Actor and musician Declan Bennett has successfully maintained dual, often intersecting careers as a singer-songwriter and musical theatre performer.

This new production at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre celebrates 45 years since the show first opened, and the intimate, gig-like experience - with performers playing instruments - promises to be very different to the recent arena tour.
