In the alternative, you can say the hell with realizing Shakespeare's vision, and simply have fun with your own. And that, I think, is the approach that director Wendy C. Goldberg has chosen to pursue at Center Stage (more...)

MILES AHEAD is not a cradle to the grave biopic; it is the story of a man in one moment in time, and how elements of his past have informed that present. It's not the definitive guide to the life of Miles Davis. But it doesn't have to be. What it is - a great film about a complex man - is more than enough. (more...)

BWW Review: Jubilant SISTER ACT Will Raise You Up at MTWBWW Review: Jubilant SISTER ACT Will Raise You Up at MTW
by Don Grigware - Apr 11, 2016

Sister Act the Musical started out in 2006 at the Pasadena Playhouse, premiered in London's West End in 2009 and then underwent serious revisions before coming to Broadway in 2011. I remember liking the first mounting in 2006 with many reservations. Since I loved the 1992 film so much, I didn't feel that the stage version was particularly faithful...no pun intended. Well, with all the 2011 changes, MTW's revival of the Broadway version is tops, a joyful, tuneful, splashy romp that never lets down, with a tremendous cast, stellar direction from Michael Matthews and soulful choreography from Daniel Smith. Douglas Carter Beane, who penned the screenplay To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar and the Tony nominated play The Little Dog Laughed, added new book material for the national tour, included here, and this contributes substantially to molding a sleek and unforgettable show.
