BWW Review: LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at Playhouse On Park
by Joseph Harrison - Sep 19, 2016

One of the biggest thrills I get as a theatre reviewer is to experience a show that I love in a new light, and to discover things about it that I never noticed before, no matter how many times I may have seen it. This was my experience viewing the first production in Playhouse on Park's eighth season, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. (more...)

BWW Blog: Cheyenne Dalton - The Theatricality of Concerts
by Guest Blogger: Cheyenne Dalton - Oct 14, 2016

Very recently, I drove from Auburn to Atlanta to see one of my favorite bands at The Tabernacle - Two Door Cinema Club - and not only did I end up falling in love with them even more, but I also fell in love with Jack Garratt, who was opening for them. My friend Josh and I went together, because neither of us know anybody in Auburn who likes the same music we do - but I ended up seeing my friend and fellow sound designer, Carl, there also!  (more...)

George Dickel' Adds 17-Year, Tennessee-Only Offering To Family Of Whiskies
by BWW News Desk - Jun 10, 2016

When Distiller Allisa Henley first discovered George Dickel Tennessee Whisky's newest 17-Year Old addition to the portfolio, she wasn't really even looking for it. At the time, she was searching George Dickel's single story barrel warehouses for 9-Year Old whisky to use in the Hand Selected Barrel Program she'd launched in 2014. However, after pulling a sample from a row of 17-Year Old barrels near the back of one of the warehouses, she knew it was too good not to share as the extra time in the barrel had resulted in a perfectly balanced, flavorful sipping whisky.

BWW Review: BYE BYE BIRDIE at Goodspeed Opera House
by Joseph Harrison - Jul 18, 2016

When looking for memorable images from America in the late 50's/early 60's, you are bound to find some old standards. Mom in the kitchen baking, Dad returning home from a long day at the office, children playing with their Slinky/Mr. Potato Head while drinking Tang, or the iconic footage of man walking on the moon for the first time. These images immediately place you firmly in an era where tradition crashed headlong into a world of new sights and sounds. And it is these images that brilliantly set the stage (and the mood) during the overture for Goodspeed Musicals' new production of the classic Adams/Strouse/Stewart musical, BYE BYE BIRDIE; and they signal the nostalgic, yet amazingly fresh romp the audience will experience for the next two hours.

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, ReAct performs 'Prelude to a Kiss' in this updated, ethnically diverse adaptation directed by David Hsieh.. Twenty-somethings Peter and Rita fall in love and decide to get married after six weeks.

BWW Review: Splendid BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Reanimated at 3-D Theatricals
by Michael L. Quintos - Feb 12, 2016

Leave it to the creative folks over at 3-D Theatricals, Orange County's award-winning Broadway-caliber theatrical company, to be the entity responsible for this splendid new regional production of DISNEY's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST---the 1994 stage adaptation of the studio's gorgeous Academy Award-winning 1991 animated film that features music by Alan Menken, and lyrics by the late Howard Ashman and Tim Rice. 3DT's rather complex mounting---directed by 3-DT co-founder and artistic director TJ Dawson---is a marvelously-enchanting reboot, even despite the myriad of unfortunate opening night technical gaffes and (almost) forgotten/missed lines of dialogue that occasionally interrupted some of the wonderment. Of course, surely the kinks will be ironed out for the remainder of its scheduled run at the Plummer Auditorium in Fullerton through February 21 (which will then transfer for a weekend of shows at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center from February 26-28).

BWW Review: World Premiere ALL MY DISTANCES ARE FAR Shares Teen Sessions with School Therapist
by Shari Barrett - Aug 3, 2016

As a former high school teacher who started an alternative program for students who had dropped out, I participated in counselling troubled teens in learning how to deal with challenging circumstances in their lives, be it with parents, siblings, friends, or the desire to find love and respect from that special someone. It's especially difficult when a teen is also dealing with emotional or physical disorders or abuse. And what happens to a foster teen when she ages out of the system? What happens to an adolescent boy with Asperger's when he falls in love? What happens to a Straight-A student who is being sexually molested? In Leda Siskind's world premiere play ALL MY DISTANCES ARE FAR we meet all these characters and others as they confide to the psychotherapist who sees them at their urban high school. (more...)

Martin Drapkin Launches New Book, THE CAT TENDER
by BWW News Desk - Aug 16, 2016

Maggie Mullen likes nothing better than following the cozy bedtime routine that she and her beloved cat, Lucy, have created, and listening to the dulcet tones of Frank Sinatra (and having romantic Frank fantasies). There's just one problem: Maggie said yes when her younger sister, Mindy, asked her to be her maid of honor. A new novel released by Dog Ear follows the ups and downs of that sisterly commitment. Maggie, 27, loves the simple life she leads, watching over other people's cats; Checking Out reality televisions shows featuring stories of births, including births by women who didn't know they were pregnant, or Jackson Galaxy fixing problem cats; fantasizing about how her clients met or live their lives; and spending time with her own precious feline while taking her nightly bath. Of course, sometimes she wishes she had someone special to be with on Valentine's Day besides the cats she cares for, but she keeps busy watching over her charges. 'The Cat Tender' shares how the duties of being a maid of honor bring all kinds of unwelcome obligations: spending money she doesn't have on a dress two sizes too big (with matching shoes and a special bra that come with equally high price tags), coming up with a loving toast and organizing a bachelorette party. Can Maggie step out of her comfort zone do this for her pretty sister or will the event forever change how she looks at life? This is the third published book by Drapkin, who has written and published nonfiction books and articles on county jail operations. His previous books are 'Now and at the Hour' in 2009 and 'Ten Nobodies (and Their Somebodies)' in 2012. As a photographer, Drapkin specializes in black-and-white portraits of mothers and their daughters, as well as taking street photographs. He and his wife, Erica, have a daughter and two grandsons. They live in Cross Plains, Wis., with several neurotic cats and dogs.

BWW Review: St. Louis Actors' Studio's Amusing IVANOV
by Chris Gibson - Apr 29, 2016

IVANOV is a formative work in the canon of Anton Chekhov. He was presenting us with the situations and character types we'd come to know and understand, but with the lack of irony that often permeates his material. The St. Louis Actors' Studio has put together a splendid evening of entertainment with their superbly performed and directed production. However, it should be noted that this is a translation by Tom Stoppard, and thus, should be viewed with that in mind. Adaptations are tricky enough on their own, but when you're dealing with a play written in another language, you're often relying on a literal translation in order to produce your take. And, that's precisely what this is. It's Tom Stoppard's IVANOV, full of unexpected humor and nicely etched characterizations, but far afield from Chekhov's early foray, which he himself revised after its initial premier. Either way, this is worth Checking Out, and surprisingly amusing. (more...)
