BWW Recap: There's 'No More Pretending' on WESTWORLD
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 31, 2016

“Contrapasso,” the title of Episode 5 of WESTWORLD refers to the concept in Dante's Inferno that every sinner should see an equally fitting punishment for their crime as the one they had committed. As guests continually exercise their id and indulge in depravity and the hosts who are victims of said indulgence start gaining consciousness and pushing back, they may find their own ring of hell at the end of their vacation. Everyone this week faces their demons and sees justice, in whatever form that maybe. For the more unsavory workers and guests of Westworld and their instinctually detached approach to the hosts from a more voyeuristic perspective, they will find an equally fitting end to their equally horrifying “sins”. For those with purer intentions and good hearts, they will battle against the sin exercising all around them and tempting them in to struggle in the search for a haven. “Contrapasso” is all about ones actions and the due retribution they will face, allowing the characters to reach a beautiful climax as the world and the balance starts shifting for them, be it in the positive or negative light.

BWW Review: Unseen Images' FAR AWAY Creates a Disturbing Dream World at The Venue
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 29, 2016

From the moment you entire The Venue and see Amanda Hudson-Giese sitting in a rocking chair on stage, there is a dream-like quality to Unseen Images Theatre's production of Caryl Churchill's 2000 play, Far Away. This dream-like quality continues as the play-proper begins, but it quickly spirals into a jarring nightmare, in which fragments of scenes and stories present a disjointed look at a world at war with itself. Less interested in sharing a complete narrative, Far Away instead sets up brief, bizarre glimpses into a world that appears to be devolving into a dystopian hellscape. (more...)

BWW Review: LAZARUS, King's Cross Theatre, 3 November 2016
by Marianka Swain - Nov 8, 2016

Like David Bowie himself, this is a show that defies definition. It's both all and none of a musical, a play, a gig, performance art, philosophical meditation, a fever dream, a collective trip into the unknown. It's aesthetically ravishing, musically profound, and – though inarguably weird and frequently indecipherable – at times emotionally devastating. (more...)

WOODBURY, Minn., Nov. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ Spending 30 minutes on a treadmill or an elliptical machine a few times each week is not the key to a healthy lifestyle.

BWW Review: The Rep's FOREIGNER Resounds with Contagious Laughter and Contemporary Relevance
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Nov 25, 2016

Written 30 plus years ago in 1985, the late Milwaukee playwright Larry Shue's award winning Foreigner first debuted at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater. After playing Broadway in the 80's, and reprised by numerous theaters across the country on an annual basis, Foreigner returns to the Quadracci Powerhous for the holiday season. Directed by the inimitable Laura Gordon who understands Shue's incomparable blend of humor, relevance and warm heartedness, could re-envision this scenario in a rural Georgia bed and breakfast inn. At the Georgia inn, a British Sergeant, Froggy, rescues his low spirited and shy friend Charlie for a weekend's stay Here Charlie meets the winsome inn owner, Betty, a conspiring reverend, David Marshall Lee, his fiance Catherine, her younger brother, Ellard, and a rapscallion homegrown Georgian, Owen. Throw in Catherine and Ellard's recent inheritance, and the invisible white empire on a starry night, and Shue created a hilarious farce, even when seen several times. (more...)

THE HIP ABDUCTION to Play the Fox Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Nov 15, 2016

Sometimes inspiration strikes from the immersion of living in a Far Away place. The view of the ocean. The sound of a rainforest at sunrise. The smell of an open-air market. The embrace of the wild human experience. However, maybe the nostalgia for a certain place might be attributed instead to a feeling, or a time, or even a person. Sometimes, inspiration stems from a place that everyone can relate to, but maybe no one's actually been. This is the music of The Hip Abduction, the vibrant St. Petersburg, FL-based collective that formed over a mutual appreciation for West African and early Jamaican reggae/dub music. (more...)

Fireship Press Releases THRESHOLD
by BWW News Desk - Nov 1, 2016

In the darkness of a moonless night, the ghost cat creeps across the U.S.-Mexico border and through a farmer's field just as a small child wanders into its path. Not Far Away, Sonya Morales, a border agent, struggles to escape from her drug cartel kidnappers. Confronted by crisis in their own world - climate scientists, politicians, and desert museum curators face the biggest challenge man can encounter - no water, anywhere. In the barrios, families and community leaders, band together as they face unbearable heat and the crushing weight of the gangs that intimidate them. Amidst the turmoil, three teens navigate adolescence to become leaders in a new world. With shifting sand underfoot, characters follow their intuition and learn new skills as they chart a way into a viable future. Threshold will make you think while it celebrates the enduring nature of communities as they search for what is lasting and true. 'In a riveting, multi-stranded plot, Threshold translates the conceptual worry over climate change into immediate, interpersonal dramas.' -Mary Lawlor, Muhlenberg College About the Author Susan Feathers is a writer and educator with 30 years of experience communicating science to the public.
