BWW Recap: The GIRLS are in town? No, Urine-town.BWW Recap: The GIRLS are in town? No, Urine-town.
by Samantha Reichstein - Jan 25, 2015

While only taking one class a week, the intensity of Hannah's Iowa Writing Workshop proves less than expected through a video chat with our sometimes-friend Jessa. Peeping out of the corner for just a split second before listing off his activities for the day, it is clear that Elijah has become the social butterfly of grad school while the true student, Hannah, sits back and watches free time pass her by. Sadly, this couldn't be any more predictable than what was expected. We learned to love Hannah for who she is because of the environment she was placed in, the middle of New York with three crazy best friends and an even crazier boyfriend. But can others learn to love the girl we all know and respect when she stands out immensely against everyone else? Of course, Jessa and Hannah's conversation ends with the same déjà vu of Marnie's: Adam. With the same distant, non-emotional responses as before, who knows which upcoming video chat will truly give us the details of Adam we all are longing to hear. (more...)

by Stephen Hanks - Jan 21, 2015

As the days dwindled down to a precious few in 2014, a few cabaret goers and performers in what is affectionately but also self-mockingly called the “cabaret community” would sidle up and ask if I was planning my annual end-of-the year “Best Of” column, similar to the “Top 20 Bests and Favorites” piece over the first half of the year I posted back in early July. I would respond in the negative with very reasonable and believable excuses, but the truth is I didn't want to reveal my “Bests” of the year until the voting for the 2014 BroadwayWorld New York Cabaret Awards had ended. There's enough baggage and backstage whispering that comes with administering the BWW Awards, so I wasn't about to publish any opinions that might influence the vote while it was in process. I may be crazy but I'm not masochistic. But now all bets are off. You want lists? I'll give you lists. (more...)
