BWW Review: MASTER CLASS at Brick Road Theatre
by Sarah Comley Caldwell - Mar 25, 2017

'Domination. Collaboration. Assets. Know your limitations.   Never move your hand, unless your heart follows it. Just listen.  Everything is in the music.'  I first read these words in the Terrence McNally play when I was a vocal performance major in college, experiencing a vocal master class weekly as part of my studies.   These words are now  ruminating through my mind since seeing the sublime and powerful production of Master Class at Brick Road Theatre Thursday evening.  (more...)

BWW Blog: Joscelyne Tamburri - Latest Happenings
by Guest Blogger: Joscelyne Tamburri - Mar 24, 2017

After countless hours of rehearsal over many months, All That Jazz, our production with the Naden Band is officially over. I am so proud of our school and the Naden band-of the Royal Canadian Navy - thought I would clarify who they were) for the amazing 2 shows we put on. It's a strange thing to have something we have spent so long getting ready for to be over in just 1 day and now we are completely moving on, it feels all too sudden. That's showbiz I guess. I must admit the nights off since we are no longer rehearsing for the show are nice. Though, we won't be missing musical rehearsals for too long; we startDisney's Beauty and The Beast rehearsals Saturday! But, like I was saying, this is the last week of real school where we have our final handwritten assignments due (and a lot of them!).  It's nice to have those nights off to finish homework or get a few extra hours of sleep, even if we do miss rehearsals.

BWW Review: ONE LOVE, Birmingham Repertory Theatre
by Emma Cann - Mar 24, 2017

Birmingham Repertory Theatre presents the world premiere production of One Love: The Bob Marley Musical. Written and directed by Kwame Kwei Armah, this brand new musical is so much more than a juke-box style tribute act. Set across a dramatic period in the music legend's life, we see Bob Marley caught in the cross-fire between opposing political parties, as his beloved homeland of Jamaica is on the brink of civil war. Torn between his family, religion and the duty he feels to unite his people with his music and his message, One Love is Bob Marley's coming of age story.  (more...)

BWW Review: THE SEEDBED at IRISH CLASSICAL THEATRE
by Michael Rabice - Mar 24, 2017

A series of purported subtle exchanges and misinterpreted actions of a small Irish family form the framework for Bryan Delaney's THE SEEDBED, now on stage at Buffalo's Irish Classical Theatre. Reminiscent of the darkness found is so much of Edward Albee's family dramas, playwright Delaney creates a brooding home that on the surface seems superficially concerned about how everyone is feeling and doing, when in actuality mother, father and daughter all are acting as victims to an unspeakable incident.
