BWW Interview: Irish Actress LISA DWAN to Perform BECKETT TRILOGY at the Broad Stage, Santa Monica and Later in NYC!
by Don Grigware - Mar 31, 2016

Irish actress Lisa Dwan, the premier interpreter of Samuel Beckett, is about to step down from the position this spring, but before she does, she will make  an appearance with the Beckett Trilogy at the The Broad Stage in Santa Monica in April. Why is this the first time that all 3 plays have been performed together? Well I guess one reason is that Not I is rarely performed and Footfalls has never been performed by one actress playing both roles of Mother (off stage) and May (on stage), and to my knowledge no other actress has tried to perform all three roles in one evening. Up until I tried it, I didn't even think it was possible.  (more...)

Lewis Black's ONE SLIGHT HITCH Coming to The Human Race Theatre, 4/8
by BWW News Desk - Mar 28, 2016

Spring has sprung and while love is in the air at The Human Race, April showers loom for the characters of the theatre company's latest production, One Slight Hitch.

Will their daughter make it down the aisle or will the day end up a perfect disaster?

BWW Review: The Stories Sisters Shall Tell in CCTC's LITTLE WOMEN: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL
by Kristen Morale - Apr 7, 2016

Cape Cod Theatre Company's production of Little Women: The Broadway Musical is really something special. As I couldn't give you a visceral explanation of what it made me feel, this is a story who's truest depth and exquisiteness - its true emotion - is to be found once the journey is complete, and even then does a new beginning have the means of springing forth. Both the story and the way it was performed on stage, with music to bring out what is nothing less than extraordinary about four average girls and what their lives amount to, has such a spark to it as only CCTC can make happen - not only with this but with every show the group chooses to do.

Leo Butler brings to the stage a day in the life of an aimless, moneyless, seventeen-year-old boy with nowhere really to go. Despite this lack of action, the result is a hypnotic, moving play which lives in both the cavernous scale of London and the tiny circumnavigation of the marginalised Liam. (more...)

BWW Review: Sandra Oh Stars in Intense New Play OFFICE HOUR at South Coast Rep
by Michael L. Quintos - Apr 25, 2016

More than ever, Americans are living in a state of fear. Such is the subject searingly explored in playwright Julia Cho's intensely jarring new play OFFICE HOUR which continues its exceptional world premiere performances at Orange County's Tony Award winning regional theater South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa through April 30, 2016. For almost 80 gripping, heart-pounding minutes without an intermission, Cho and director Neel Keller tap into this fearful 'new normal' in the form of Gina, a divorced adjunct university professor brilliantly played with quiet yet powerful grace by Sandra Oh (of TV's Grey's Anatomy, making her SCR debut). In the play, Gina makes it her goal to get through to a young creative writing student, Dennis (Raymond Lee), whose disturbing, excessively ultra-violent writing submissions have caused some concerns with both students and teachers.
