BWW Reviews: Top Notch Cast Delivers Sparkling PYGMALION
by Frank Benge - Jun 30, 2014

Doing Shaw isn't for the timid, especially for modern audiences which have become expectant of a happy ending.

It's a classic Cinderella story, complete with slippers… in this case, though; they're thrown rather than worn. There's even a ball - well, a couple of parties, actually. The problem is…there's no Prince Charming. This fairy tale has no happy ending. (more...)

BWW Recap: INTRUDERS Premiere Erupts with Mystery and Murder
