BWW Interview: Maury Yeston Talks DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY Ahead of London Opening
by Liz Cearns - Sep 30, 2016

Maury Yeston, the composer and lyricist best-known for Nine and Titanic, visited the West End a few months before the West End opening of his new musical, Death Takes a Holiday. Based on a film (which was based on a play) this story tells of how Death changed his perspective. He used to not quite understand why everyone he came to collect was quite so aggrieved to die, until he met a particular woman who allowed him to realise quite what makes life worth clinging to. The side effect of Death's occupation being, though, that he can't collect anyone else while he's so Distracted - Death the person and death the concept take a break!  Maury was kind enough to discuss his musical background, some of his better-known works and his latest venture for the stage.

BWW Recap: GREY'S ANATOMY Avoids Catastrophe, but Hasn't Yet Found the Cure
by Lauren Gienow - Sep 30, 2016

“Catastrophe And The Cure”—The second episode of season 13 of GREY'S ANATOMY aired last night, and the show continues to move each plot forward in interesting ways—Alex continues to face the repercussions of his assault on Deluca—personally, professionally, and legally; Both Jo and Deluca also have to face the emotional and professional fallout of Alex's actions; the Meredith/Maggie/Riggs love triangle continues its slow and awkward burn toward inevitable hurt feelings—even though Meredith somehow seems to think that this is avoidable; Jackson and April work to figure out the whole parenting-while-divorced-and-while-mom-is-recovering-from-surgery thing; and Owen and Amelia adapt to being married and therefore kind of needing to communicate with each other—a skill at which this couple has always fluctuated from being awful to amazing. Those fluctuations continued last night. (more...)

In Robert Askins' Hand to God, when sock puppet, Tyrone, takes on a wickedly funny and shockingly dangerous personality all his own, the introverted teenager, Jason, who created him finds his world turned inside out.

BWW Blog: Patti Meadors - College Pre Screen Videos
by Guest Blogger: Patti Meadors - Sep 27, 2016

Over the past week, I have been in the process of recording, rehearsing and being coached for my pre screen audition videos for applying to college.

I also worked for an hour on the optional/technique jazz combination video. (more...)

BWW Review: Roundhouse & Olney's ANGELS IN AMERICA: MILLENNIUM APPROACHES an Artistic and Historic Triumph
by Andrew White - Sep 15, 2016

Angels in America:  Millennium Approaches is not just a national treasure, it is a glimpse of history in the making; it is a then-marginalized community seizing the stage, demanding attention, and beginning the long process of changing hearts and minds across the country.  To watch the kaleidoscope of characters, brilliantly portrayed here by some of Washington DC's finest actors, can be incredibly moving.  Not just for the performances themselves, which are memorable indeed, but for how those performances remind us of the changes this play made possible.

BWW Blog: Shelby Ringdahl - Why the New York Regional Premiere of HEATHERS THE MUSICAL Has More Relevance Now Than Ever
by Guest Blogger: WPPAC's HEATHERS - Oct 5, 2016

When you think of Heathers the Musical, you think of croquet, powerhouse vocals, and colorful blazers. You think of scrunchies, high waisted jeans, and all things 80's. Let me preface this post by saying the show is filled with moments that will have you falling over laughing, brilliant performances by an insanely talented cast of 22, and a creative team made up of the best of the best. It's definitely a show you don't want to miss, specifically because beneath it all is a message for the masses. While some might say it's easy to get Distracted by its twisted plot and songs about male genitalia, the overarching theme of the musical shows the true impact we as humans have on one another. In this show, we see just how evil humans can actually be to one another, and how we are called to be soooooooo much better than this.  With all the hate going on in the world right now, it is proven that we, as humans, can be absolutely brutal to one another. We will tear each other down to the bone just to make ourselves feel better (look at the presidential election, for example). But this show hones in on the affects that words and actions can have on the minds of others…especially young people. (more...)

BWW Review: ROCK OF AGES is a Runaway Train of Sexiness and Head Banging
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 2, 2016

The cast for TheatreWorks Florida's Central Florida Premiere of the musical ROCK OF AGES is dynamite; easily one of the two or three best collections of talent that I have seen on an Orlando stage in my three-plus seasons of Central Florida theatergoing. Director and choreographer Scott A. Cook has crafted an impressively ambitious production with a top-notch, multi-level set from James F. Beck. The silly show is trivial at best, but that is the exact mark that it aims to hit, and the onstage band, led by music director Shannon Kropf, rocks incredibly hard to some of the most recognizable tunes of the hairband-era.

There comes a moment in Act Two (or maybe it's Act One - on second thought, maybe it's the second Act One, although it could be the third…) of Michael Frayn's Noises Off, now onstage at TPAC's Andrew Johnson Theatre, in which Martha Wilkinson comes onstage, hits her mark, cuts her eyes at another actor and with perfect timing reaches out to touch his arm, her expressive face showing every word the audience needs to hear, eliciting guffaws and applause as her reward.

BWW Review: New Line Theatre's Fantastic CELEBRATION
by Chris Gibson - Oct 13, 2016

Though I'm extremely familiar with Tom Jones' (words) and Harvey Schmidt's (music) most popular work, THE FANTASTICKS, I had never seen their follow up, CELEBRATION. What I'd read while doing research was that it really fizzled once it was on Broadway. However, after seeing it I can understand why; it's a smaller scaled show that requires just the right venue to succeed. That's why I'm so glad New Line Theatre opened their 26th season with this fanciful and tune-filled musical. Through their superlative efforts we're able to see the premiere of a version that's been revised by Tom Jones. I'm not sure what was changed, but what we're privy to is a very engaging and entertaining production that will make you wonder why it isn't performed with more regularity. The score itself is gorgeous, and I cannot recommend this neglected gem highly enough. (more...)

BWW Review: RUTHLESS THE MUSICAL Kills at Creative Cauldron
by Keith Tittermary - Oct 11, 2016

"Dying is easy, comedy is hard". The old adage has been attributed to countless comedians over the years. When a musical comedy attempts to combine comedy and death, the outcome can either be successful (think Monty Python) or fall on its face. Ruthless! The Musical, a 1992 off Broadway campy musical, which opened this week at Creative Cauldron in Falls Church, falls into the latter category. The intermission-less show written by Marvin Laird and Joel Paley has funny bits, and a few memorable songs, but overall the piece, which has had a successful life in regional theater, is just flat. Sure, it spoofs musicals like Gypsy and movies like All About Eve, but the humor is a bit rudimentary and plays more like a bad SNL skit, then a well-polished farce. (more...)
