BWW Review: Teatro ZinZanni's Exuberant WELCOME TO WONDERLAND
by Jay Irwin - Oct 14, 2016

I don't think I've ever seen a bad Teatro ZinZanni show.

Teatro ZinZanni shows are always a good bet for an evening of bliss and their current offering, 'Welcome to Wonderland' is no exception. (more...)

BWW Interview: Jake Epstein Reflects On His Return to BEAUTIFUL and the Legacy of Gerry Goffin
by Courtney Savoia - Oct 12, 2016

The abundantly talented Jake Epstein returns to Broadway's Beautiful :The Carole King Musical this fall and is savoring the experience of stepping back into a role he originated almost three years ago, as one of rock and roll's top songwriters. Gerry Goffin wrote the lyrics to some of the most celebrated masterpieces that not only defined a generation, but also continue to pierce the hearts of human beings everywhere -- as they stem from themes that are most pertinent to our nature. Themes of love, loss, confusion, joy, and pain all bleed into the words and melodies that Goffin created with songwriting partner and first wife -- the beloved Carole King. With immortal hits such as 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow' 'Up on the Roof,' and '(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,' among countless others, Goffin and King were able to explore the depths of the human experience - regardless of gender - and have produced a legacy that will continue to remain timeless and evoke nostalgia for years to come.

BWW Review: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis's Taut MOTHERS AND SONS
by Chris Gibson - Nov 15, 2016

Few playwrights tackle the subject of HIV/AIDS like Terrence McNally. Watching a generation wither away before his eyes has led him to explore the impact it has had in a number of works. One is ANDRE'S MOTHER, a short play which he was asked to expand. But, McNally opted to continue the story into the present day, and that choice acts to remind us that those left behind still suffer the pain of having lost a loved one, no matter how much time has passed, or how much things have changed medically and culturally. The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis opens their Studio Theatre season with an intimate and moving production of MOTHERS AND SONS, and it's driven by an exceptional cast and thoughtfully conceived direction.

BWW Review: CIRQUE DU SOLEIL'S OVO at HEB Center In Cedar Park is Family Friendly Thrills and Laughs
by Frank Benge - Mar 17, 2017

Cirque du Soleil's OVO, currently playing at the HEB Center in Cedar Park is an immersive family friendly evening of acrobatic thrills wrapped up is a sweet and funny clown bug love story. The show is a look at an insect ecosystem teeming with life. The acrobats are dressed as insects and the acts, which are tied together by the clowns storylines of looking for the egg and the lady bug's suitors, results in a non-stop story of insects working, playing, fighting and looking for love. Among the exciting visuals in this fast paced dazzler of an entertainment are foot jugglers who, as ants, juggle gigantic kiwi fruit and ears of corn; trampoline artists dressed crickets leaping off and on a high wall; a silk artist who uses the silks to show a butterfly transforming from cocoon state and trapeze artists in a stunning aerial act. Along the way is also a beautiful and graceful dragonfly hand Balancing Act and a hilarious moment with a caterpillar. (more...)
