by BWW News Desk - Feb 7, 2017

Washington National Opera (WNO) continues its 2016-2017 season with the company premieres of two modern American masterworks of opera: Jake Heggie and Terrence McNally's Dead Man Walking, February 25-March 11, 2017 in the Opera House, and Terence Blanchard and Michael Cristofer's Champion, March 4- 18, 2017 in the Opera House. Both operas explore the theme of social justice which is often associated with John F. Kennedy and are presented as part of JFKC, the Kennedy Center's season-long celebration of President Kennedy's centennial. Using many of the same designers and scenic elements, the directors of each opera have worked collaboratively to create two distinct worlds in each new production to showcase the issues of Justice, Courage, and Freedom at the heart of these two compelling stories.

Bygone Theatre presents HIS GIRL FRIDAY
by BWW News Desk - Feb 6, 2017

The iconic 1940 film by Charles Lederer, starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell, is hitting the Toronto stage in a new adaptation by Craig Dix. This classic screwball comedy tells the tale of Walter Burns (Sean Jacklin), a hard-boiled newspaper editor who learns that his ex-wife, 'newspaper man' Hildy Johnson (Cass Van Wyck), is going to give-up reporting to marry a bland insurance salesman (Steve Hobbs) from Albany. Determined to sabotage these plans and keep Hildy with the paper - and himself - Burns convinces her to cover one last story. Things quickly spiral out of control and Burns and Hildy find themselves tangled up in the case, and each other's lives. A hilarious look at identity, and the struggle to balance life and love.

BWW Review: Victory Gardens' World Premiere A WONDER IN MY SOUL Pays Loving Homage to Chicago's South Side and Female Friendship
by Rachel Weinberg - Feb 22, 2017

In Kurtis Boetcher's set design for Marcus Gardley's world premiere A WONDER IN MY SOUL, the backdrop for the South Side beauty shop where the play is set prominently displays the photographs of black female icons ranging from Diana Ross to Beyonce-and all of course have fabulous hair in the photos. And as we learn in the play, Aberdeen "Birdie" Calumet (Greta Oglesby) and Bell Grand Lake's (Jacqueline Williams) fictional beauty shop has played host to a number of these famous black women over the years. But what Gardley's play does so beautifully is take the story of these specific, everyday characters and lend a universality to them. The play takes place primarily in 2008 but shows us flashbacks of young Birdie (Camille Robinson) and young Bell (Donica Lynn) as they make their way from Mississippi to settle in Chicago and start their business. Along the way, Gardley weaves a narrative that is warm and sometimes funny but also ultimately serious and touching. And as one would expect, Johnny Jamison's hair and wig design is just superb.
