The 5 & Dime and Delegal Law Office to Present NEVER THE SINNER
by BWW News Desk - Oct 30, 2016

Chicago, May 21,1924. Nathan Leopold Jr., age 18, and Richard Loeb, age 19, killed 14 year old Bobby Franks and we're quickly apprehended when Leopold's glasses were found near the corpse. Clarence Darrow defended them, pleading eloquently against capital punishment. Why would wealthy young men murder an innocent boy? What demons lurked behind Loeb's flashing good looks? Behind Leopold's saturnine intellect? This exquisite Off Broadway hit explores the complex relationship between these two who longed to create a private world of fevered intellect and romantic passion. The author suggests that, given twists of fate and character, Leopold or Loeb could be anyone who has loved too much, had a broken heart, wanted to prove everlasting devotion, or looked at a loved one and thought ' I'd die for you... I'd kill for you.' This is a love story set to themes of crime and punishment,  the press, the times, humanism,  Nietzsche philosophy and the end of the jazz age. (more...)

BWW Recap: And Then There Were Three on Shocking AMERICAN HORROR STORY
by Jessica Naftaly - Nov 3, 2016

With only two more episodes left of AMERICAN HORROR STORY and a death toll we're just counting down, as could be predicted 'Chapter 7' would be filled with more carnage, brutality, and...you guessed it...death. The show went from five to three this week and the only thing keeping the audience hanging on with suspense is the knowledge that only one of this thrilling cast of characters will survive. This episode, as did last week's, toed the line between horror and torture porn, but ultimately barely treads above that water by focusing on the compelling performances and dealing with the effects this hellish situation is having on these people. As the steaks are upped, everyone appears to be pushed to the edge and it is clear that no one will walk away without first getting their hands dirty. (more...)

BWW Review: Spare, Disorienting RICHARD III at Chesapeake Shakespeare Company
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Feb 13, 2017

This version of Richard III has been stranded in a World War I setting where it does not fit very well, and gives us an exceedingly tight focus on Richard himself, to the exclusion of a plethora of characters and relationships. The spareness of the resulting work is disorienting. Who are all these people and why are we supposed to care about them, again? Maybe we'll figure it out and maybe we won't. Richard remains a fascinating character: a moral and physical cripple who takes the audience into his confidence and challenges us to dislike him as he schemes, murders, seduces, and marries his way onto the throne.

by BWW News Desk - Apr 13, 2017
