The promise of community favorite Jim Kocher in drag and of soulful tunes to show off fantastic vocal talents were more than enough to match the audience energy with that of the cast.

BWW Review: BUZZER at ACT Feels Overly Self ImportantBWW Review: BUZZER at ACT Feels Overly Self Important
by Jay Irwin - Feb 6, 2016

It's one thing when a play is meaningful and important, something most plays strive for. It's another thing when a play tries to be meaningful and important. And it's yet another thing when a play insists that it's meaningful and important. Unfortunately Tracey Scott Wilson's play 'Buzzer', currently playing at ACT, falls squarely into that second camp and teeters to fall into the third. (more...)

VERONA WALLS to Run 3/3-26 at Workshop TheaterVERONA WALLS to Run 3/3-26 at Workshop Theater
by BWW News Desk - Feb 4, 2016

Some Shakespearean tragedies are ripe for a prequel; amidst the chaos and bloodshed, you wonder what happened to get us here, and what might be going on just out of view.  In 'Verona Walls,' playwright Laura Hirschberg, a Shakespeare devotee since childhood, imagines a background story for 'Romeo and Juliet' that is separate from the ancient grudges that frame the Bard's tragedy.  She spins a separate and most profound 'bromance' for the Montague boys in this new play, which centers on the loves and mistakes of Mercutio--Romeo's Best Friend and Shakespeare's notorious scene-stealer--as the action of "Romeo and Juliet" plays out somewhere offstage.  The Workshop Theater, 312 West 36th Street, will present the play's world premiere March 3 to 26, directed by DeLisa M. White. (more...)

BWW Reviews: IF/THEN at Aronoff features great talent, but loses its wayBWW Reviews: IF/THEN at Aronoff features great talent, but loses its way
by Kate Elliott - Feb 4, 2016

IF/THEN begins well enough with a compelling musical number. The song 'What If?' weaves a tapestry of tight harmonies and interesting staging. It immediately establishes the premise: a woman paralyzed by the song's title question proceeds to live out two possible life paths for the audience. Think 'Sliding Doors,' but with more supporting characters and a lot more songs. Unfortunately, this ambitious multi-layered premise proves too much for the authors, and the show ultimately loses its way. (more...)
