BWW Review: Lauren Gunderson's THE TAMING From TWTP
by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 6, 2015

It's all in the timing. No matter if you're delivering a joke, performing a new play or just putting something noteworthy out into the ether, the key to success is often just a matter of good timing. Case in point: the recently crowned Miss America 2016 came into the pageant as Miss Georgia - and in Lauren Gunderson's play, The Taming (now onstage at Nashville's Z. Alexander Looby Theatre in the "first east of the Rockies" production from Tennessee Women's Theater Project), we are treated to the "art imitates life" scene in which Miss Georgia becomes Miss America.

by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 22, 2015

Take Cate Jo, for example: A native of Birmingham, Alabama, she originally arrived on the Vanderbilt campus with an eye toward a career in academia, ultimately changing course to pursue a career as an actress. Most recently, she played the challenging role of Bianca in Tennessee Women's Theater Project's production of Lauren Gunderson's The Taming, a fanciful contemporary comedy that fairly crackled with intensity as it examined popular and political culture in the United States, viewing the trajectory of American political thought from the earliest days of the republic to the present. Earlier this year, she played Lady Nijo and Nell in Vanderbilt University Theatre's production of Caryl Churchill's Top Girls. (more...)

Andrea Rosen Gallery Announces Representation of Hayden Dunham
by BWW News Desk - Jan 20, 2016

Andrea Rosen Gallery is thrilled to announce the representation of artist Hayden Dunham. Dunham embodies multiple practices that inform an incredibly fluid and rigorous way of thinking and creating. 'For any age, Hayden Dunham is one of the most unique, talented and innovative individuals I've ever known; but born in 1988, she is also a representation of a future way of thinking, and a future way of creating.' - Andrea Rosen Hayden Dunham creates entire circulatory and structural systems. She is interested in the physical transformation and mutation of the body--the corporeal body and the object as body - and is equally interested in what we inflict on ourselves, what is inflicted on us through society, as well as unconscious internal transformations. Focusing on materials and their transformative effects both natural and synthetic (chemicals, metals, glass, plastics, minerals, porcelain, etc...), Dunham explores how the distribution and absorption of specific substances can change and augment our bodies. Methods of dipping, soaking, aerating, pooling, dusting and encapsulating are employed; through this interfacing, her works - the by-products of her active systems - are supported through induced transformations. The upcoming two-part exhibition BIO:DIP featuring Hayden Dunham at Red Bull Studios New York (February 20 - April 17), curated by Neville Wakefield, will afford the New York public an opportunity to see a significant presentation of Dunham's sculptural works. We look forward to deepening our engagement with Dunham's wholly unique trajectory, and share her work with new audiences. Following the recent announcement of Simon Fujiwara, these announcements will continue to build. Hayden Dunham (b. 1988) is from Austin, Texas and currently lives and works in New York and Los Angeles. She holds a BA from NYU Gallatin. She has participated in exhibitions and performances at Andrea Rosen Gallery, New York, NY; MoMA PS1, New York, NY; SIGNAL Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; Farewell, Austin, TX; New Museum, New York, NY; and Colette, Paris, France.

BWW Review: NUNSENSE at Camarillo Skyway Playhosue
by Cary Ginell - Apr 7, 2016

The idea for Nunsense, the whimsical musical about five wacky but lovable nuns from the Little Sisters of Hoboken, came to creator Dan Goggin from an unexpected quarter. A friend had presented Goggin with a mannequin dressed as a Dominican nun in traditional habit, with the idea that it would be fun to feature a photograph of the mannequin and Goggin as part of a greeting card. The cards were a success and so, having worked in theater since 1963, Goggin decided to emulate Pygmalion by bringing the mannequin to life. The first Nunsense production opened in 1983 with a cast featuring three nuns, a priest, and a brother. The show featured sketches written by a friend, Steve Hayes, but in order to move the show to Off-Broadway, they had to have an actual 'book' to replace the sketches. It was at this time that the priest and the brother became additional nuns and a story was written to tie all of Goggin's songs together. The expanded Nunsense won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Musical and ten years and 3,672 performances later, it ended its original run, becoming second in longevity only to The Fantasticks for an Off-Broadway show. Since then, there have been over 8,000 productions of Nunsense around the world, with the show translated into twenty languages and a half-dozen sequels following in its wake. What makes Nunsense so universally loved? Simple. It's funny, the songs are cute and singable, and the good feelings inherent in the show's believable characters are infectious. (more...)
