In order to put up the highly complex musical of "Man of La Mancha" you need more than the voices to fill the main roles. You need an ensemble who understands the text and the tone of the situation as well as a pacing to keep this intricate show moving along. Alas, that is what was missing from Seattle Musical Theatre's current production and is what hampers their show. (more...)

by Michael L. Quintos - Oct 14, 2014

For 90 solid minutes, Tony Award-winning Broadway icon Brian Stokes Mitchell---under the guise of a showtunes-centric cabaret concert themed around his most recent studio album Simply Broadway---provided his enthralled Costa Mesa audience a virtual master class in musical theater performance. Not only did he sing every selection beautifully (as expected), he performed the heck out of each song with electric, palpable passion. Instead of merely parking himself in front of a mic, the seasoned pro of film, television and the Broadway stage chose to actually disappear into each song's character with purposeful yet effortless ease. It's not difficult to be awed by Mitchell. (more...)

Time and time again Serenbe Playhouse has wowed us with their unorthodox, open-air performances. Their unerring commitment and faith in the transformative power of the stage is quite the literal breath of fresh air for Atlanta, and the national regional theatre scene. Uncompromising in their ambition, Serenbe Playhouse kicked off their summer with a seductive retelling of Rogers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, in which they abandoned the Technicolor landscape of the West for its gritty underbelly full of lust and greed. The show went on to be nominated for a staggering 11 Suzi Bass awards - more than any other production this year. From there they brought the barbarity of Sleepy Hollow on its head with a series of frightening, sold-out performances depicting the harrowed tale of Ichabod Crane, Katrina and Brom Bones like never before.

BWW Reviews: NERTC Tackles MAN OF LA MANCHABWW Reviews: NERTC Tackles MAN OF LA MANCHA
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Nov 10, 2014

For its fall offering, the New England Regional Theatre Company mounted an ambitious and stirring production of Man of La Mancha at the Orion Performing Arts Center in Topsham, Maine. The sixteen-person cast and twelve-musician ensemble invested this touching revival with passion and intelligence. Directed by John Willey, the 1965 Dale Wasserman-Mitch Leigh-Joe Darrion musical based on Miguel de Cervantes' epic novel, Don Quixote still burns with intensity, idealism, and a much-needed antidote in a chaotic modern world - the courage and hope to 'fight for the right' and follow the quest. Willey strikes the right balance between comedy and drama, and he handles the musical's framing device - that of Cervantes recounting his tale in a prison of the Inquisition - with visual and theatrical aplomb. He keeps the entire cast on stage for the duration and uses the exceptionally wide Orion space inventively, so that the action flows naturally and his musical staging is completely organic. Moreover, he elicits from his actors a fervent luminosity that proves inspiring. (more...)
