A SOLDIER'S SON is Released
by BWW News Desk - Oct 18, 2016

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ Masterfully crafted by Jack Estes, 'A Soldier's Son' calls on the author's own experiences in Vietnam to tell the gut-wrenching story of a PTSD-riddled veteran, who breaks to the core of his being when his son is sent to the war in Iraq. He has a plan to 'save' him; a plan that will put protagonist Mike Kelly's own life on the line and rekindle the memories of Vietnam that threaten to destroy him. A Novel this profound has naturally been received with critical acclaim.

BWW CD Review: That 70s Show, DISASTER!
by Remy Holzer - Oct 17, 2016

It takes guts to write a parody of 1970s disaster movies. After all, AIRPLANE!, the parody of the AIRPORT series, is one of the most beloved comedies of all time. It also takes guts to write a 1970s jukebox musical. A show you may have heard of called MAMMA MIA! ran for nearly 14 years and 6,000 performances. Nevertheless, into this field of exclamation points flew DISASTER!, a parody of 1970s disaster movies...and a 1970s jukebox musical. The show, co-written by multi-hyphenate Seth Rudetsky (who also plays one of the main roles) and director Jack Plotnick, was perhaps a bit slim for the past Broadway season. Its silliness, specificity, and lack of original songs may have caused it to struggle amid the powerhouse shows surrounding it, and it closed in May after 72 performances. But it did receive some enthusiastic reviews, and in particular acclaim for the breakout performance of Jennifer Simard, who was nominated for a Tony for her performance of a nun with a gambling addiction. (Her big moment in the show, singing 'Never Can Say Goodbye' to a HAWAII FIVE-O-themed slot machine, can be viewed online.) Now Simard will be accompanying the show to London. In the meantime, we have Broadway Records' DISASTER! cast album, which contains 28 (!) songs from the show. (more...)

BWW Recap: It's Showtime with Honest Abe on TIMELESS
by Courtney Henley - Oct 11, 2016

Last week's premiere of TIMELESS started off the season with a bang. (Ha, see what I did there? Because the Hindenburg blew up?!) This week's journey takes us to Ford's Theater, April 14, 1865. If that date sounds familiar to you, it should: it's the date President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated while enjoying a performance of Our American Cousin. Although Flynn's motives for wanting to go back and alter these specific events in history is still unclear, last week's premiere showed us that every change Flynn makes, big or small, can dramatically impact the course of history.  (more...)

BWW Review: CHASING RAINBOWS: THE ROAD TO OZ at Goodspeed Opera House
by Joseph Harrison - Oct 11, 2016

It's probably hard to find anyone around today who is not familiar with Judy Garland. Older generations may have grown up with her in "Easter Parade" or "Meet Me in St. Louis". Others might remember her fondly as a powerhouse entertainer and singer who hosted her own television variety show. But at the very least, even the youngest among us know Judy as the unmistakable and indefatigable Dorothy Gale in the timeless MGM classic movie The Wizard of Oz. But a lot happened on "the Road to Oz", those formative years that put "Baby" Frances Gumm on the path to becoming Judy Garland and a super-star. And that journey is what brilliantly comes to life on the Goodspeed Opera House stage in the latest Goodspeed Musicals production CHASING RAINBOWS: THE ROAD TO OZ. (more...)
