BWW Review: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA at Bass Performance Hall
by Kyle Christopher West - Oct 25, 2016

After a record-breaking twenty-eight years on Broadway (and nearly the same timespan on the road), THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is an international sensation that's been seen by virtually everyone. In fact, nearly 150 million people have sat in the audience for a performance and listened to the Andrew Lloyd Webber score in more than 15 languages! Up until the 2004 feature film, each of these performances followed the blueprint created by director Harold Prince and CATS choreographer Gillian Lynn, first staging it in London where it currently celebrates its 30th year of success. But, in 2012, producer Cameron Mackintosh recruited West End director Laurence Connor to helm a sparkling new production, later inspiring a new US tour that has just returned to Bass Hall in its second DFW-area appearance. And while 'Phans' of the original production might miss a few iconic elements, the new tour offers an exciting opportunity to experience the show through a new pair of opera glasses. (more...)

BWW Review: CFTA's YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN Will Have You Laughing All The Way Home
by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 25, 2016

Patrick Kramer's commanding performance as Frederick Frankenstein (that's 'FRONKENsteen' for the uninitiated) in the Center for the Arts' production of Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein is reason enough to buy a ticket (if you're lucky enough to score one - shows are playing to capacity crowds in Murfreesboro, so make your reservations yesterday), but director Renee Robinson and musical director Stephen Burnette very adroitly surround him with such strong support that the entire ensemble of Transylvanian thespians is worth the price of admission.

BWW Review: SHOPPING AND F**KING, Lyric Hammersmith, 14 October 2016
by Liz Cearns - Oct 15, 2016

BWW Review: ANTIGONE Is Exquisite Ode To The Past, Message For The Present at Seymour Centre
by Brodie Paparella - Oct 11, 2016

Sport for Jove's reputation has gone from strength to strength this past year for presenting Sydney's most gripping, topical and connective theatre canon, as part of which Damien Ryan's adaptation of Sophocles' Antigone is absolutely at home. A transportation of an ancient Greek tragedy into the context of a very-near-future where its messages of female empowerment, the dangers of dictatorship, the real threat of toxic masculinity on communities, and of 'public opinion' on societal progress are as valid if not more for today's audiences. The ensemble is flawless and diverse, for which alone the ticket price is worth reinforcing a vision for Australian stages such as Sport for Jove have impressed. Andrea Demetriades is a force of nature in the title role, commanding change amongst the people on stage and in the stalls through a performance direct, deep and dynamic. Damien Ryan's text is nothing short of exquisite, which bears repetition and reiteration for its multi-lingual, multi-dimensional transformation of an archetypal narrative. To create something that evokes authentic ancient tragedy not with pity but with empathy is what made this production less theatre and more art in its strongest form with every passing cue and paragraph.
