BWW Previews: AURORA CHILDREN'S PLAYHOUSE SUMMER EDITION at Aurora Theatre
by Amy Zipperer - May 15, 2017

It's a Saturday morning, and I'm at the Aurora Children's Playhouse at Aurora Theatre.  We're waiting for Wendy Bennett's interactive performance of Cinderella to begin.  That exciting electricity of patrons eagerly anticipating a show dances in the air.  Most of this morning's patrons are between the ages of 4 and 10.  And many are dressed like princesses.  I've counted two Jasmines, three Cinderellas, and a Belle.  Wendy Bennett, bouncy and bright, walks onto the stage and comments excitedly on the number of princesses in the audience.  One little girl in a white summer dress pops up from her chair and says, 'Look at me.'  Another little girl in the back who's wearing a blue tulle ballerina skirt won't be outdone.  She stands on her chair and shouts, 'Look at me!'  And those exchanges are perfectly indicative of the spirit of this fun presentation where, at any moment, children might become pumpkins or white mice or even Prince Rupert (who's giving a ball) all while Wendy Bennett sings songs and waltzes with puppets.  It's a morning of sheer delight.  (more...)

BWW Review: The Barn's Southern-fried and bred SEEING STARS IN DIXIE
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 17, 2017

Featuring a quintet of charming and engaging players, under the deft and focused direction of Everett Tarlton, Seeing Stars in Dixie (which winds up a month-long run at The Barn this coming Sunday, March 19) is the kind of laugh-out-loud funny that only comes from the heart, as it relates the story of a group of people in Natchez, Mississippi, circa 1956, who are caught up in all the hoopla and hullabaloo of a movie, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift, being made right over yonder. It's based in fact: Taylor, Clift, Lee Marvin, Eva Marie Saint and all the accompanying Hollywood types came to Natchez to film Raintree County, a Southern gothic tale that transformed the sleepy, small town into a veritable Beehive of Tinsel Town talk and celebrity hijinks.
