BWW Reviews: THE PRODUCERS at Village Theatre
by Jay Irwin - May 11, 2012

It's difficult when you have an iconic show to work with such as "The Producers" currently playing at Village Theatre. The Mel Brooks classic movie turned Mel Brooks mega hit stage musical turned Mel Brooks movie musical is definitely a big piece of musical theater history. Add in huge stars like Gene Wilder, Zero Mostel, Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane to that history and the result of subsequent productions can vary from bland imitation to just plain not in the same league to the other end of the spectrum with spot on awesome, but you'll always kind of compare with the original. Well, luckily the Village production is on that latter end of the spectrum. With their couldn't-be-better-if-they-tried cast they manage an amazing show and even a few departures along the way that only made it stronger. (more...)

Staatstheater Braunschweig zeigt Andrew Lloyd Webber's SUNSET BOULEVARD
by Marcel Konrath - May 10, 2012

Der Stummfilmstar Norma Desmond gehorte zu den Gottinnen der Leinwand. Im Blitzlichtgewitter wurde sie gefeiert, die ganze ┬╗Traumfabrik┬ź Hollywood lag ihr zu Fu├čen. Doch der Tonfilm beendete ihre Karriere abrupt. Und sie musste begreifen, wie verganglich Ruhm sein kann. Man schreibt das Jahr 1949: Zuruckgezogen von der Welt, verbittert und nur noch ein Schatten ihrer selbst, lebt Norma in ihrer luxuriosen Villa und wartet auf ein Comeback. Vergeblich - bis wie aus dem Nichts der erfolglose Drehbuchautor Joe Gillis in ihr Leben tritt. Plotzlich bluht die kapriziose Diva wieder auf. Sie verliebt sich in den jungen Mann, durch den sie sich erneuten Starrummel und eine baldige Ruckkehr auf die Leinwand verspricht. Doch Wunsch und Wirklichkeit gehen nicht immer Hand in Hand. Joe ist langst nicht der, der er vorgibt zu sein. Und auch Normas Traume von erneutem Ruhm entpuppen sich schon bald als Luftschlosser - ein dramatischer Showdown bahnt sich an. (more...)

by Christina Mancuso - Apr 26, 2012

"I'm just a stupid mom....who would want to hear me sing?" griped one band member before shedding her soccer mom image and launching into international rockstar success. In MoM: A ROCK CONCERT MUSICAL, five suburban 40-something moms form a rock group and learn how "rock and roll saved [their] sorry ass souls." This is a story of five everyday, normal housewives who forfeit their homemaking duties, throw aside their "granny underwear," leave the kids with Dad, and decide to follow their own dreams. "Why can't HE take care of the kids for a change?" they ask. As one mom aptly puts it, "Sometimes it's been a nightmare, and other times a dream come true." (more...)
