Lori Bookstein Fine Art to Present Review of John Crawford Exhibit, 10/20
by BWW News Desk - Jul 28, 2016

John Crawford, a Brooklyn-based artist whose output consists of welded steel sculptures, spent 10 years (1976–86) in Tuscany working at a blacksmith's shop after graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design. Since 1995, he has been interested in the smithing works of various West African cultures. As a result of these models, his work is highly tactile, abstract, and often totemic. Abstract steel sculpture has a long, illustrious history in the U.S., but Crawford's vision is quite different. He borrows from the forms of other places to create work that openly relates to its making, as well as to the history of American creativity. Interestingly, there is a sensuality and organic quality to his forms, often made of rings and coils, somewhat at odds with their industrial construction. Such differences, however, thrive and meld in Crawford's work. (more...)

BWW Review: OC's Segerstrom Center Welcomes Delightful New THE SOUND OF MUSIC Tour
by Michael L. Quintos - Jul 27, 2016

A surprisingly well-done, beautifully-paced production that feels like a truly fresh revival of something many of us have forever seared in our brains, this brand new, Jack O'Brien-helmed national tour of THE SOUND OF MUSIC---now on stage at Orange County's Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa through July 31---is a resplendent enterprise that is equal parts heartwarming nostalgia and entertaining, feel-good theater. Say what you will about how hokey and old-fashioned this show may be now... but I, for one, truly adored it. Besides its lovely visuals, this new revival has made a wonderful discovery in Kerstin Anderson, who plays a spunky, utterly charming version of everyone's favorite nun-turned-nanny Maria. (more...)

BWW Review: LES MISERABLES at The Esplanade
by Rocky Christopher Fajardo - Jul 26, 2016

THE ESPLANADE THEATER, Singapore - There is no Doubt that LES MISERABLES has taken the form of the mammoth blockbuster musical it is now thirty years after its first production and it is clear that this 2016 re-imagined production - currently taking over Southeast Asian theaters and filling them up to the rafters - is a decisive indication that this Cameron Mackintosh ticket is all set to march on for another 30 years, or perhaps even longer.

Zita Harrison Pens INK - BENEATH THE STAIN
by BWW News Desk - Jul 25, 2016

Zita Harrison's fictional novel, 'Ink - Beneath the Stain' is about the damaging effects of prejudice and discrimination, and the need, now more than ever, for acceptance and love. In the year 2016, the world remains firmly trapped in the clutches of bias, unable to accept differences, to live and let live. While the progress in technology, science, and society is mind boggling, the human brain has been unable to overcome the primitive instinct for survival at the cost of others. Today this instinct dictates that, in order to attain success in life, forms of our species that vary in appearance, ability, culture, religion, sexual orientation, gender, political beliefs, and social status be put down, and kept down. From bullying and ostracism in schools to discrimination in society to hostility between countries, it's all about the need to establish oneself as stronger and more powerful. The effects of these are long lasting, if not permanent. The resulting population of twisted, angry people who are so caught up with indignities, real or imagined, that they cannot get past them to try to find any good in life, is global. They want to blame, to hurt, and to kill. Just look at the increasing number and frequency of headlines. Terrorism towards those of different beliefs: 'Truck rams Bastille Day crowd in Nice, France, killing at least 84' (Washington Post, Jul 15, 2016). Physical and psychological abuse of women in third world countries: 'Women murdered for 'honour', torched, maimed' (The Express Tribune, Jul 12, 2016). Mass shootings of both adults and children: 'Baton Rouge Shooting Jolts a Nation on Edge' (nytimes.com, July 17, 2016); 'Sandy Hook Elementary shooting leaves 28 dead, law enforcement sources say' (washingtonpost.com, Dec 14, 2012). These headlines are frightening enough individually, let alone together. Is there any Doubt that we are, now more than ever, in the grip of a madness caused by prejudice, discrimination, and the need to survive? 'Real progress, to really make a world better than the one in neanderthal days, has to be in the form of acceptance and love. Believing in it, being mindful of it, and practicing it.' - Zita Harrison About the Author: 'Ink - Beneath the Stain' is Zita Harrison's first novel, and a product of who she is. She has lived in many different countries, loves to travel and experience different cultures, and feels very fortunate to be living in California, home to so many different ethnicities. Zita holds an M.A. in English Literature. For more information about 'Ink - Beneath the Stain,' please visit www.zitaharrison.com or contact Zita Harrison at 510-794-8691. (more...)

BWW Review: Entertaining Comedy BREATH OF SPRING Opens New Season at Theatre 40
by Shari Barrett - Jul 25, 2016

Production teams at Theatre 40 expertly present mid-20th Century British comedy better than almost any other theater in town. So it was no surprise to find out the group decided to present the riotous BREATH OF SPRING by Peter Coke to open their 51st season, directed by Bruce Gray and produced by David Hunt Stafford, the dynamic duo production team who have brought so many great shows to their stage. Written in 1958, BREATH OF SPRING has nothing to do with the season. In fact, it is a type of silver mink highly prized among fur aficionados. And while we may have differing opinions about wearing fur, there is no Doubt in the mid-20th Century that lovely fur coats, stoles and jackets were often worn not only to keep warm but to show the wearer had "made it" into high society.

BWW Review: OF MICE AND MEN Amazes at Monomoy
by Kristen Morale - Jul 21, 2016

Never having seen this on stage but having read the novella some time ago, at the time acknowledging it as one of the most memorable stories I have ever read, seeing Steinbeck's words and emotions transposed on stage by the Monomoy Theatre, bringing to the life this simultaneously sad and touchingly hopeful plot by such talented individuals, really made the impact of Of Mice and Men that much stronger. In my opinion, it enhances this plot to the extent of it being particularly memorable for some time to come for all who are fortunate enough to see this production. (more...)

BWW Review: HISTORY LIT Presents Three Immersive Plays at Perfectly Matched Locations Around the Pasadena Museum of History
by Shari Barrett - Jul 19, 2016

When you check in for HISTORY LIST, you will receive a color-coded program which indicates the group with whom and in what order you will walk around the site to witness the plays. The entire audience returns to a central meeting point in front of the historical Fenyes Mansion, led by time period costume-matched Tour Guides who go on to appear as characters within the play at the location where they have led you. Try to stay as close to these guides as you walk with them as their comical banter is not to be missed. I truly enjoy asking them questions as we walked, knowing their improvised answers will perfectly match the characters they are playing. (more...)

OUTSIDE MULLINGAR at TheatreWorks this October
by BWW News Desk - Jul 19, 2016

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley continues its 2016/2017 season with the regional premiere of Tony Award-nominated Outside Mullingar. Written by John Patrick Shanley, the Oscar, Pulitzer, and Tony Award-winning author of Moonstruck and Doubt, this wry romantic comedy tells the tale of two eccentric, lovelorn neighbors split apart by family feuds and rustic fences as they stumble their thorny way toward the brink of happiness. Set amidst the rustic cottages of rural Ireland, this funny, poetic, and deeply moving Broadway hit asks if it is ever too late to take a chance on love. Outside Mullingar was praised by The New York Times as "Shanley's finest work since Doubt," and will be directed by Robert Kelley.

BWW Review: MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET Dominates Musically In Annapolis
by Cybele Pomeroy - Jul 18, 2016

If you belong to a particular subset of music aficionados, you may love this show. Vocally and instrumentally, the performers do an excellent job of animating beloved legends.Their musicianship is impressive and Musical Director Amy Jones has done a terrific job creating authentic-sounding renditions of well-known songs. JP Coletta's athletic interpretation of Jerry Lee is absurdly fun to watch. As Elvis, Travis Artz is enthusiastic and delivers excellent footwork. Adding some feminine energy to the show, Elvis' girlfriend 'Dyanne,' portrayed by Bella Muller in a saucy, sultry performance, blows the audience away singing 'Fever.' (more...)

BWW REVIEW: Tamara Tunie in AMERICAN SON at Barrington Stage Company
by Justin J Sacramone - Jul 17, 2016

Kendra Ellis-Connor is living every mother's worst nightmare. Her son is missing. It's now four o'clock in the morning and she's at the police station trying to get answers. The officer working the nightshift is useless, her ex-husband isn't picking up his phone and the speculations are beginning to consume her. Her son's disappearance and the station's lack of information raise questions. Kendra has a hunch why. Both she and her son are black. American Son, a new play by Christopher Demos-Brown which ran at the Barrington Stage Company from June 17 through July 9, 2016 is a turbulent parable of America's systemic racism. (more...)
