BWW Blog: Arielle Jacobs - Flying High, Down Under: Part 7: The First Time is the Hardest
by Guest Blogger: Arielle Jacobs - Sep 16, 2016

It's days like this that I wish someone would just tell me what to do. Tell me what the rules are. Or guidelines. Whatever they're called. As I sit here, bundled up in my comfy clothes and steaming my face, I sit in the knowledge that I'm battling a cold. My neck aches and my ears have been clogged for days. My nose is leaking BEHIND my face. Not out the front, but down back my throat.  The kind of drip down your throat that is just annoying and makes you feel like you've got a sore throat in the morning, but then you drink water and realize it's just the constant drip of liquid making your throat slowly raw.

BWW Blog: Arielle Jacobs - Flying High, Down Under: Part 1: Destination Sydney
by Guest Blogger: Arielle Jacobs - Aug 16, 2016

I've thought about writing a blog for a long time.  I wasn't sure that I wanted to take on the pressure of figuring out what to write, what is entertaining, who's my audience, blah blah blah.  But I know that when I read other people's words and reflections, it moves me. It speaks to me. And I often see my thoughts in their thoughts.  So I figure, it's about time to share what excites me. Because I am at a point in my life when there is a whole lot of new adventures that are pretty damn exciting! (more...)

BWW Blog: Arielle Jacobs - Flying High, Down Under: Part 4: The Audience Effect
by Guest Blogger: Arielle Jacobs - Aug 16, 2016

Tonight was our first audience at the Capitol Theater!  It was exciting to finally share our creation with the 1600 friends and family that attended our final dress rehearsal.  Before it started, the whole cast was buzzed, nervous, excited.  After the curtain came down at the end, I sang to our genie, Michael James Scott, "We can never go back to befoooooore!" a la Ahrens & Flaherty. Tonight we crossed over a threshold, giving away what was once our private creative space. It's like spending 6 weeks making a fantastic cake, and then watching everyone enjoy it and eat it up.  But the process of making it ready, making it perfect… the anticipation phase… it's done.

BWW Review: La Mirada Theatre Revisits Classic Musical WEST SIDE STORY
by Michael L. Quintos - Apr 30, 2017

Because it is arguably one the most beloved and critically-acclaimed musicals of all time, WEST SIDE STORY is revisited often by regional theaters across the country (and, frankly, the world). So it is no surprise that yet another large regional theater in Southern California is reviving this nostalgia-baiting, reliably-entertaining, and thematically-resonant show, this time by the talented folks over at McCoy Rigby Entertainment at their home base at the La Mirada Theater for the Performing Arts, where performances continue through May 14, 2017. The resulting show---while mostly and genuinely enjoyable---presented a few jarringly curious presentation choices that didn't quite sit well. Unfortunately, in its admirable quest to inject some 'new-ness' into the well-known retro musical, some of the slight staging reinventions did enough to really lessen the impact of certain scenes that have previously been significant highlights.

BWW Opera Review: SF vs. NY, Tilson Thomas vs. Gilbert, Mezzo vs. Baritone, But Audiences Take the LIED
by Richard Sasanow - Apr 25, 2016

Earth Day has come and gone in 2016, but symphonic orchestra audiences in New York have lots to remember from this year's celebration, with performances of Mahler's DAS LIED VON DER ERDE (SONG OF THE EARTH). In less than a week, we had two different versions of the piece, with differing pluses and minuses: First, the San Francisco Symphony, under its music director, Michael Tilson Thomas performed the work at Carnegie Hall, then Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic had the home court advantage at Lincoln Center's Geffen Hall.
