BWW Review: Seattle Shakes Musical MIDSUMMER Hits Several Bad Notes
by Jay Irwin - May 7, 2017

I've never been a fan of transplanting classic works such as Shakespeare to "new and exciting" locales and time periods but I have seen it work as long as the adaptation enhances the existing story somehow or at the very least makes sense with the story. Unfortunately, Seattle Shakespeare Company's current musical adaptation of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with a 1930's movie musical Bent fails on both respects and then some. It's got a few elements in it that work but overall it makes little sense and the added music adds nothing but confusion. (more...)

BWW Review: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, VOL 2 is Marvel at its Comedic and Emotional Best
by Matt Tamanini - May 5, 2017

BWW Review: BEAU JEST Is Back In Fine Form At Chaffin's Barn
by Jeffrey Ellis - May 12, 2017

Funny and familiar, James Sherman's Beau Jest might well be considered perfect dinner theater fare: spread across two hours, the comedy is easily digested and the players - this time, the estimable ensemble assembled by director Martha Wilkinson for the latest incarnation at Chaffin's Barn Dinner Theatre - charming and likable. The plot remains relevant, even years after it was first produced, and the dialogue flows at an accessible pace, spoken by characters who are altogether believable. And while Beau Jest likely won't push any envelopes or venture outside anyone's pre-conceived creative box, it nonetheless seems current and up-to-date. (more...)
