BWW Review: MARTHA GRAHAM DANCE COMPANY Thrives Anew in 2017
by Sondra Forsyth - Feb 21, 2017

The venerable Martha Graham Dance Company, founded 91 years ago in 1926, is thriving anew after getting past protracted legal battles following modern dance pioneer Graham's death and coping with the loss of historical material during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Much of the credit for the success of the current iteration of the troupe goes to Janet Eilber, a former Graham principal who has been at the helm as Artistic Director since 2005. She has instituted a policy of not only presenting Graham's classics but also commissioning fresh visions from today's finest choreographers. (more...)

BWW Review: Good Things Come In Three's with American Bard's VISIONARY VOICES
by Kristen Morale - Feb 19, 2017

Directed by Aimee Todoroff and Tonya Pinkins and now in performances at the Gloria Maddox Theatre, Visionary Voices begins with Susan Glaspell's Trifles, followed by Marita Bonner's Exit: An Illusion and ending with Glaspell's The People - three wonderful plays that are more engaging and poignant in their single acts than many full length shows ever have the opportunity of being. All three plays take place at or near the start of the twentieth century, craftily combining themes as relevant today as they were then - collaborating with suspenseful plots, troubled characters and questionable motives that, when put together, show just how clever Todoroff and Pinkins are. In both the structure of this show as a whole and the effect it has on the audience, the truth here is that Visionary Voices is more than a statement - it is definitely a production worth your time.

BWW Review: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis Presents Inspired Production of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
by Chris Gibson - Feb 16, 2017

The Repertory Theatre of St Louis is presenting Christopher Sergel's adaptation of Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, and it's a stunning production that is sure to be a smash hit. The addition of a representative group of African Americans referenced in the program as 'The Community' improves the experience immeasurably. The play itself has only a couple of characters of color, and in previous productions I've seen this presented a problem for me, given that the story is about injustice. This seemed to me to be a sort of injustice in and of itself. The basic story was there, of course, but something was missing that would further enhance a clearer understanding of the atmosphere and period. Now I can't imagine a staging that shouldn't follow this lead. This is a powerful and timely show that qualifies impressively as must-see entertainment. (more...)

BWW Review: Everyman Delivers a Rich Production of GREAT EXPECTATIONS
by Cybele Pomeroy - Feb 14, 2017

Director Tazewell Thompson, handling a tale that is heavy on narrative, guides the pliable ensemble to a performance that is dynamic, touching, amusing, lively and filled with gothic foreshadowing. Every sequence unfolds a new delight, from slapstick action to nuanced characterization to the most hilarious rendition of Hamlet it has ever been my privilege to witness. Script, direction, casting, performance and tech are each remarkable renditions of their kind. The beautiful language is retained, but made perfectly clear by action and diction. Additionally, it's heartily funny. (more...)

THE VOLKSWAGEN SAGA is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 14, 2017

Leadership author Steven Howard highlights the many leadership lessons emanating from the Volkswagen diesel emissions test cheating scandal in his latest book Leadership Lessons from the Volkswagen Saga. 'This is a story full of leadership lessons on corporate governance, branding, crisis communications, corporate responsibility, and individual accountability relevant to leaders of any size organization,' notes Howard, the author of 18 leadership and business books. 'Without a Doubt, this intentional corporate malfeasance by Volkswagen has become the global benchmark for corporate cheating and corporate scandals.' To date, Volkswagen has been assessed or agreed to over $24B in fines, penalties, and compensatory payments to car owners. One Volkswagen employee is serving an 18-month jail term in South Korea. Another is awaiting sentencing in the U.S. after a plea bargain arrangement. A third sits in a U.S. jail thousands of miles away from his home in Germany pending his own trial or plea bargain agreement. Five of their colleagues in Germany have been indicted on felony charges by a U.S. grand jury and have been warned not to leave the country. The Volkswagen diesel emissions test cheating scandal and its various offshoots have had a far-reaching impact on a wide range of parties. This impact has been financial, environmental, political, and regulatory. The parties affected include car owners, Volkswagen's leadership team and employees, shareholders, car dealers, government officials, regulatory agencies, the media, the automotive industry, and even the Made-in-Germany brand. 'The Volkswagen Saga is a story of deliberate corporate misconduct that has impacted the automaker's car brands, leadership structure, governance, corporate reputation, current and future financial results, and its corporate culture,' states Howard, President and CEO of Caliente Leadership. 'And, the story is far from over as the automaker faces countless lawsuits, criminal investigations, and potentially more charges of cheating on emissions tests in a dozen or more jurisdictions around the world.' Leadership Lessons from the Volkswagen Saga is the first book to be published on the automaker's emissions test cheating scandal. The book is now available on Amazon in both Kindle ($8.88) and paperback ($18.88) formats. About Steven Howard Steven Howard specializes in creating and delivering leadership development curriculum for frontline leaders, mid-level leaders, and high-potential leaders. For almost 30 years he has delivered leadership development programs in the U.S., Canada, Asia, Australia, Europe, and Africa to numerous organizations and institutions. He is well-known for his truly international and multicultural perspective, having lived in the USA for 23 years, in Singapore for 21 years and Australia for 12 years.
