BWW Review: Audiences Will Love BUYER AND CELLAR at the Panasonic TheatreBWW Review: Audiences Will Love BUYER AND CELLAR at the Panasonic Theatre
by Alan Henry - Nov 15, 2014

Sometimes an idea is so crazy, it just might work. The premise behind the hit Off-Broadway play, Buyer and Cellar is simple – Barbra Streisand has an underground mall in her basement and hires an out of work actor to tend to the shops. The first part of the premise is based in reality; Streisand really does have an underground mall – which she discusses in her book My Passion for Design. The out of work actor working there is the brainchild of playwright Jonathan Tolins. (more...)

BWW Recap: Hank and Max Have Breakthroughs on PARENTHOODBWW Recap: Hank and Max Have Breakthroughs on PARENTHOOD
by Matt Smith - Nov 14, 2014

Thursday night. Time for a new PARENTHOOD recap: First, Max rushes to Kristina (who's back — yay!) because Adam's still away on business (WHAT?! 6 EPISODES LEFT, PEOPLE!) desperate to know how to ask a girl (read: Dylan) out on a date. When he does go to do it though, he finds Dylan kissing another guy. Max first asks to expel Aaron Brownstein, the guy who was making out with Dylan, which escalates to handing out flyers and then a full-on brawl in the middle of the hallway. Out of anger, Max decides to end his friendship with Dylan and keep his distance. Then, he backtracks… but goes too far… and Dylan, as such, reacts. Simply, in just a few words, amazing acting all around from Max Burkholder, and it's nice that Max Braverman is so deeply involved in his relationship with Dylan that he actually wants to do something about it. It's great, too, that Kristina shows a softer, compelling side toward him; she understands why he did what he did. And that final scene between them was perfect! (more...)
