The Finborough Rediscovers Howard Brenton Classic, MAGNIFICENCE
by BWW News Desk - Sep 29, 2016

Photo Flash: First Look at AJ Shively, Kate Abbruzzese & More in Center Stage's PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
by BWW News Desk - Sep 26, 2015

Jane Austen's mastery of manners and morals will be on full display in Center Stage's new production of her beloved masterpiece, Pride and Prejudice. In the Bennet sisters' 19th-century English world, marriage is the prize, but for second-eldest, Lizzy, companionship trumps blind courtship. Enter Mr. Darcy, and one of literature's most iconic and tempestuous romances takes flight. Journey through a world quite unlike-and yet perhaps not so different from-our own, as Lizzy and Darcy learn that First Impressions aren't all they seem, and that second chances can lead to answers that have been there the entire time. Take a look at the production below! Photo Credit: Richard Anderson  (more...)

BWW Review: Orlando Shakespeare's BAKERSFIELD MIST is Thrilling Examination of the Nature of Art
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 19, 2015

To whom does art belong? Is it something for only the elite and educated to analyze and appreciate, or is the opinion of the average viewer just as valid? That and many other complicated questions about the nature of art are examined in Stephen Sachs' thrilling two-hander BAKERSFIELD MIST, running at the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre through November 15th. Under the exquisite direction of Matt Pfeiffer, Steve Brady and Anne Hering collaborate for one of the most intelligent, challenging, and exciting performances I have seen in quite a while.

BWW Review: Upstream Theaters Wonderful DE KUS/THE KISS
by Chris Gibson - Oct 16, 2015

Playwright Ger Thijs' work, DE KUS has been splendidly translated by Paul Evans in Upstream Theater's production of THE KISS. There is a certain magic in these woods where a chance encounter takes place. It's that old adage about the importance of First Impressions, but taken to show that second and third and fourth, etc impressions can be more even more revealing, and honest. That's the sense of wonder we experience watching this unique play, set in a woodland, path strewn Dutch forest, where a man and woman meet repeatedly, and find new "hidden truths" that allow each of them to delve a bit closer into the life of the other. It's a truly special show that captures the imagination in unexpected fashion, somehow transforming a black box theatre into a beautiful landscape where personalities begin to emerge as an unlikely couple come together, to ponder, console, and pass the time. This is just a terrific show that completely demands your attendance. (more...)

BWW Review: Engrossing, Disturbing WINNERS AND LOSERS at Woolly Mammoth
by Andrew White - Nov 9, 2015

When the lights come down, we're treated at first to the sort of amiable, snarky chit-chat one associates with Comedy Channel. The two performers, James Long and Marcus Youssef, skim the surface of American culture and even ask the audience for suggestions. But after luring us with the sort of 'Canadian Nice' that we expect from our neighbors up north, the pair's conversation lurches into darker territory; and then it goes into overdrive. (more...)

by Nancy Grossman - Jul 12, 2016

The witty, insightful New England premiere is given its due by a crackerjack cast who look like they've been performing together for months, not days. (more...)

For the second time in the past few years, the Disney favorite BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is in New Orleans. If you caught the show a couple of seasons ago (read my review here), you know that this is one of the most magical productions currently running! It's a classic story with a great message about seeing beyond a person's exterior and trying to get to know them for the person they are inside. Belle certainly sees beyond the Beast's exterior, and through her passionate care, helps the residents of his castle to reclaim their humanity. (more...)
