BWW Review: NABUCCO at The Metropolitan Opera
by Milette shanon - Jan 5, 2017

"Power to the people" could very well be the mantra for the gorgeous opera Nabucco highlighted by the inspiring Va Pensiero chorus sung by the Hebrew slaves as they pray to G-d for their dream to return to their homeland of Jerusalem to take flight. As I sat in the Metropolitan opera house recently, witnessing the opera with several thousand others, I have to believe that there was no one in that audience who was not moved. Nabucco reminds us all that the Bible, like Shakespeare, is timeless. Its lessons span millennia and are repeated Over and Over again. (more...)

BWW Blog: Amanda Grillo - Finding the Fit: Typecasting
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Grillo - Jan 3, 2017

A big part of show business is typecasting. There are "types" that people fall into. These can be based around age, race, gender, and personality. Some people this as an opportunity to play to their strengths. I once participated in a workshop where the instructor told us to "know our types". He then began to call people out one by one: "You're a Fierstein. Try looking at Edna Turnblad or Tevye." "You're a Broderick. Look at his roles." "Streisand. You have a lot of options for material." He compared us to already well known household names in the theatre world. What about embracing who you naturally are? Why be the next [insert celebrity here], when you can make a name for yourself and be original? There are stock characters that people naturally gravitate towards with ease whether it be by look or by personality, but if people get locked into these types it begins to be all they are seen as. To some people, these types can be seen as limiting. There's not much variety in roles if they play the same kind of part Over and Over. Actors should try to expand their range of roles when possible. The popular belief of what is attractive doesn't necessarily need to be the leading players driving the action, but just because someone who isn't conventionally attractive drives the story doesn't mean it is an ugly duckling tale. Dramaturgy also comes into play if a character description is explicitly influencing the script. That being said, I've seen several productions where the characters look phenomenal. They are a perfect depiction of how the story describes, but the talent was subpar. It was very clear that a different person was a much better fit, though they might not have been the perfect image. This idea got me thinking: Just because you look the part, does that mean you deserve it?  (more...)

Jim Caruso's 12 Days of Christmas... Barbra Streisand Reinvents a Classic
by Jim Caruso - Dec 21, 2016

Love it or hate it, this souped-up arrangement of 'Jingle Bells?' has become an iconic recording by the one and only Barbra Streisand. Of course, it's from her first Christmas album, which came out in 1967, but I was introduced to it in 1970 when it was released on a special promo album for Maxwell House coffee, along with cuts by Doris Day and (yes) Jim Nabors. I thought it was funny then, and I think it's funny now. I especially love the Brooklyn-ese reading of the word 'upsot.' It was all very sophisticated and slightly oddball to the young Jimmy Caruso, and takes me right back to Wexford, Pennsylvania, where I'd listen Over and Over on my little record player. (Google that word, kids.) (more...)
