BWW Preview: SONS OF ANARCHY; Motorcycle Gang HAMLET
by Desiree Fantal - Sep 8, 2014

Hopefully if you're joining me for the final season of FX's hit series “SONS OF ANARCHY,” you've already gone through the first six seasons of family feuds, friendly (and not-so-friendly) fire, guns, drugs, murder and betrayal. This is not a show you should leap into mid-season. It is a finely crafted, leather clad, loosely Shakespearean tale that uses six seasons to show the evolution of the inhabitants of a small town named Charming, and its tormented leader, Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam).

BWW Reviews: Fine Tuned OKLAHOMA! at Welk Resort Escondido
by Don Grigware - Sep 12, 2014

When Oklahoma! was first produced on Broadway in 1943 it became the first smash hit for newly formed collaborating team Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II and also the first real book musical, preceded only by Showboat. It was a breakthrough musical, which when given a first-class production, is still, some 71 years later, without question, one of the greatest American musicals ever written. 'The Farmer and the Cowman' truly represents the philosophy of what America is all about, a unity and pride that is unmistakably individual. Welk Resorts' newest production is wonderfully entertaining, retaining a lot of traditional elements. Director Dan Mojica jubilantly brings together a very talented cast now in Escondido through November 16. (more...)

BWW Spoiler Alert!: PENNY DREADFUL Elegantly Concludes a Bloody First Season
by Matt Tamanini - Jun 30, 2014

Due to the grandness of PENNY DREADFUL's scale, going into the finale, the show's pacing and habit of ignoring characters and storylines for weeks at a time left me wondering what would actually be revealed in the Season Finale.
