BWW Blog: Emma Mueller - Imagine
by Guest Blogger: Emma Mueller - Sep 26, 2016

I was never one to sit still. I always tap a foot in the air while I'm sitting cross-legged. I twirl my pen while taking notes in a lecture and make typing motions with my fingers while trying to figure out what to write. But I surprised myself. I have done more sitting still in the last week than I have in my entire life, and it was nothing less than enlightening.  (more...)

BWW Review: RUN, 2 FACED DANCE, Dance Xchange, 14 October 2016
by Emma Cann - Oct 16, 2016

2 Faced Dance Company's Run is an evening of dance presented by three female choreographers, featuring three new works from the company's artistic director Tamsin Fitzgerald, Prague-based Lenka Vagnerova and the first BENCH commission recipient Rebecca Evans. All three pieces - danced by 2 Faced Dance's all-male company - explore human choice and our decision to take flight or fight the darker side of humanity. Themes of fear, paranoia and evil resonate throughout the evening, which feels particularly poignant given the current political instability.  (more...)

Kazu Mori: Photography Beyond and Inline with Skating
by Barry Kostrinsky - Oct 13, 2016

Kazu Mori: Photography Beyond and Inline with Skating By Barry Kostrinsky What makes a photographer a photographer? Is it a certain number of shots with a camera, is it a certain quality of the images? What of all those pictures you have taken with your iphone, are they photographs, have you printed them? The definition of photography has been changing over the last 10 years. When Kazu Mori takes his camera in hand with a fixed wide angled lens that seems to have been beaten and battered by some street tricks, is he an inline skater or a photographer? (more...)

BWW Review: THE DROWNING GIRLS at Theatre En Bloc
by Frank Benge - Oct 10, 2016

THE DROWNING GIRLS, began its life in 2008 at the Edmonton Fringe in Calgary, AB. Written by two actors and a director, the story comes from an actual murder case in England in the early 20th century. A man named George Joseph Smith courted and wed multiple women and used a different identity every time. His modus operandi was to isolate the victims from their families, getting all of their property signed over to him. He would then purchase life insurance on them and proceed to drown his victims in a bathtub. THE DROWNING GIRLS is told from the perspective of the three brides: Bessie (Christin Sawyer Davis), Alice (Sarah Danko) and Margaret (Bridget Farr). Their stories take place in three separate years but get woven together from beyond the grave. The three play not only themselves, but every other character involved in their fate, from serial murderer to family members and doctors. The resulting play is one of poetic language, lyrical rhythmic movement and a breathtaking social critique on marrying in haste. What we are treated to is how love can lead to the less-than-happily ever after. (more...)

BWW Review: The Ordway's Faithful Production of the Classic Musical A CHORUS LINE is a Thrilling Sensation!
by Jill Schafer - Feb 19, 2016

The 1975 smash hit Broadway musical A CHORUS LINE truly is a singular sensation. After winning nine Tony Awards and a Pulitzer Prize (one of only eight musicals to do so), it ran for 15 years, making it the longest running musical on Broadway at the time (it still ranks as number six). I've been waiting almost seven years for a local production of A CHORUS LINE, since seeing the Broadway revival tour in 2009. The Ordway Center for the Performing Arts has finally fulfilled my wish, and it's well worth the wait. Featuring a fabulously talented cast of over two dozen legit triple threats, about half of whom are local, co-directed and co-choreographed by A CHORUS LINE expert Kerry Casserly and Artistic Director James Rocco, this show hews very close to the original. There's no re-imagining here, this is a beautifully faithful production of the singular sensation that is A CHORUS LINE. If you call yourself a musical theater fan, it's a must-see. (more...)

by Jan Nargi - Aug 1, 2016

The Ogunquit Playhouse in southern Maine has been setting the bar higher and higher with each new production under Bradford T. Kenney, artistic director. What used to be a quintessential ocean-side summer stock house now operates from May through November, often mounting New England, and occasionally national, regional premieres.
