JITNEY Fever: How One Play Secured August Wilson's Legacy While Redefining Race and Success on Broadway
by Alexa Criscitiello - Apr 9, 2017

This season welcomed the very first Broadway production of the August Wilson drama, Jitney. Based on the real-life cab services of the 1970's which would service clients of color when regular taxi cabs would not, the story examines the relationships of the community in and around a jitney station in Pittsburgh's Hill District. Being the last play of Wilson's American Century Cycle to reach the Main Stem, the production adds the final jewel to the crown of August Wilson's sterling Broadway legacy. (more...)

BWW Review: CINDERELLA AND FELLA at Alliance Theatre
by Amy Zipperer - Apr 9, 2017

'Three Dots to the Deluge' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Apr 5, 2017

Dog Ear Publishing's new novel 'Three Dots to the Deluge' is by turns disturbing and blackly humorous in a style reminiscent of Céline. Louis Bourbon is someone who wants better for himself: better Clothes, better food, a better life. When he procures a credit card, he's eager to use it to impress his peers, but all too soon, he's overcome by debt. And, as Louis observes, 'Debt, I was quickly learning, was like quicksand: the more effort you make to escape it, the more it sucks you in.' When he moves on to college, his financial woes only deepen. With the expenses of medical school looming and a poor investment putting him into further debt, Louis takes drastic action to dig himself out of the bottomless pit he finds himself in. He turns to a pimp of his acquaintance to learn the trade, but when the girl he hopes to partner with spurns him, he flees to Cuba to so that he can, in his words, take a 'holiday from myself.' Upon Louis's return to Canada, he buckles down and alters his habits enough to make his dreams of becoming a doctor come true. Even though he gets his financial house in order, his personal life is still chaos, which includes a brief, but intense affair with a married woman. He crosses paths with an old friend, Sosthène, who is an ardent Socialist and desperate to liberate Quebec from Canada. Sosthène's political ambitions cause Louis concern, but Sosthène's decision to commit a bank robbery as an act of vengeance against the Establishment is farther than Louis is willing to go. Will Sosthène's plan come to fruition, and can Louis get his life in order? 'Three Dots to the Deluge' is a fascinating look at one man's eagerness to grow beyond his background, and another man's dream of seeking justice in an unjust universe. The twists and turns that mark their respective paths are at turns dramatic and funny. The novel's exploration of debt, divertissement, and death is unsentimental and entertaining, while its critique of liberal democracy is unflinching.

BWW Review: BLOOD KNOT at Mosaic Theater Company

BWW Interview: Lisa O'Hare and Bryce Pinkham Share Why It's 'Loverly' to Reunite for MY FAIR LADY
by Rachel Weinberg - Apr 28, 2017

Shortly before performances began for MY FAIR LADY at Lyric Opera, I had the opportunity to sit down with Lisa O'Hare (Eliza Doolittle) and Bryce Pinkham (Freddy Eynsford-Hill) for a conversation backstage at the opera house. O'Hare and Pinkham are no strangers to working together, as they both originated roles in the 2014 Tony Award-winning musical A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER. Pinkham in fact revealed that one of the reasons he signed on to MY FAIR LADY was to have a 'front-row seat' to see O'Hare's take on Eliza, a role she has performed previously in the West End and in a 2008 U.S. national tour. While dressed in street Clothes but still wearing faces full of stage makeup, O'Hare and Pinkham chatted with me about what it's been like to reunite, why they're excited to be involved in this staging of Lerner and Loewe's classic musical, and how it feels to perform on the Lyric stage. Read on for excerpts from the conversation. (more...)

BWW Review: STRAIGHT OUTTA OZ Spends One Short Day at the Thrasher-Horne
by Heather Vollman - Apr 23, 2017

Todrick knows that, acknowledges it in the pricey playbill, and his fans do not seem to mind one bit. (more...)
