BWW Review: A 'Midsummer' to End All SummersBWW Review: A 'Midsummer' to End All Summers
by Kristen Morale - Aug 30, 2015

Watching Shakespeare's play come to life on the sandy shores of Chatham, Massachusetts is a rather interest thing to behold. Hippolyta lounges on a beach Chair near the ocean while the mischievous Puck jovially dances onto the stage wearing an Anglers jersey. Cape Cod is to be found everywhere, yet Monomoy has still managed to keep the Shakespearean spirit alive and well in its production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. The characters have remained the same: Theseus and Hippolyta still plan on being wed, Helena entreats after the love and affection of the unwilling Demetrius, who instead views the fair Hermia as his darling one - a love interest shared with the doting Lysander, whom Hermia finds dear. The fairy King and Queen, in addition to those that serve them, still wreak havoc on the lives of each other as well as on the unsuspecting humans below, stealing from them their gift of free will and forcing them to see what they would not have otherwise seen. A group of men anticipating their performance before Theseus and his new bride at their wedding run into trouble when their lead is given an animal's head. Confusion and inexplicable events still run rampant, and this story remains as entertaining and riveting as ever - this is without a doubt true. (more...)

BWW Poem: An Ode (sort of) to HANNIBAL (or, Why Canceling it is the Biggest Mistake Ever)BWW Poem: An Ode (sort of) to HANNIBAL (or, Why Canceling it is the Biggest Mistake Ever)
by Courtney Henley - Aug 27, 2015

Let's be honest: as we reflect on the impending series finale of Hannibal, we could easily write a novel praising the show from both a critical (and a Fannibal) point of view. For example, we could mention the incredible use of sound design and editing, the meticulously crafted imagery, and the subtle vein of dark humor that runs throughout the series. Or, we could sit for hours and discuss the themes that create the foundation of the show, or how the techniques used in Hannibal hearken back to classic, groundbreaking films made by masters of horror, like Cronenberg and Kubrick. Or we could gush about just how awesome Bryan Fuller really is.  (more...)
