BWW Review: NEWSIES Brings Charm, Remarkable Talent to Dr. Phillips CenterBWW Review: NEWSIES Brings Charm, Remarkable Talent to Dr. Phillips Center
by Matt Tamanini - Jan 29, 2015

Admittedly, I am not in the target demographic for Disney's musical NEWSIES, running through February 1st at Orlando's Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. This musical, which concluded its two-and-a-half year Broadway run last fall, has inspired a legion of young, female fans who have dubbed themselves 'Fansies.' So while I might not be who the show is normally marketed towards, I left the Walt Disney Theatre on Opening Night completely infected by the optimism, athleticism, and heart of this movie-musical adaptation. Though far from being without fault, the score (which won a Tony for composer Alan Menken and lyricist Jack Feldman), the script (by Tony-winner Harvey Fierstein), and the immense talent of the young ensemble made this a exceptionally enjoyable evening of entertainment.

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ It sounds more like a plot from a science Fiction film than real life: according to recent projections, there will be three times as many internet-connected things on Earth as there are people within the next 10 years. Consumers are already reaping the benefits of this transition, adjusting the air conditioning in their home from the office or lowering the heat to reduce costs while vacationing. These opportunities, which once seemed abstract and consumer-centric, have now become a reality to the more than five million commercial and industrial buildings in the US 1. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Tarantino Meets Elizabethan England in PULP SHAKESPEAREBWW Reviews: Tarantino Meets Elizabethan England in PULP SHAKESPEARE
by Ellen Dostal - Jan 26, 2015

The stylistic marriage of Shakespeare's language and Tarantino's Pulp Fiction reaps heady rewards for linguists and lovers of indie crime drama in PULP SHAKESPEARE at Theatre Asylum in Hollywood. The runaway hit of the 2010 Hollywood Fringe Festival is reinventing itself in a new production produced by Matthew Quinn and Aaron Lyons. Originally helmed by Jordan Monsell, this iteration is directed by Amanda McRaven and features three returning major cast members surrounded by a new ensemble of players. Smart writing, coupled with deadly serious character interpretations and a clever transposition of Tarantino's iconic scenes to Shakespearean England, make this the kind of shrewdly intelligent comedy you can't get enough of. It's almost uncanny how easily it all fits together. Its two leading men are loaded with charisma. Lyons stars as Vincenzio de la Vega and Dan White as Julius Winfield, the Elizabethan counterparts of their namesakes played by John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson. White has more obvious character traits to latch onto as Jackson playing Jules and his speech patterns and mannerisms offer up some of the biggest laughs in the show. Lyons is the more understated of the two, easily sliding into the slinkier style of Travolta's Vincent. Together they make this buddy play a bloody delight. I'd see it again just to watch how they play the audience. (more...)
