BWW Review: ON SONDHEIM: An Opinionated GuideBWW Review: ON SONDHEIM: An Opinionated Guide
by Christina Pandolfi - Jan 5, 2016

As a self-proclaimed Broadway and theatre aficionado, I certainly thought I had a solid working knowledge of Stephen Sondheim. His music and lyrics have spanned a generation and impacted the world with innate complexity and thoughtfulness. In particular, Gypsy has had a tremendous personal impact on my life - as a young dancer, trying to achieve success and now as a writer, finding such delicious harmony in the words. In the seminal love song between Rose and Herbie, "You'll never get away from me, you can climb the tallest tree, I'll be there somehow." Beautiful, sweet, precisely perfect. (more...)

Seven Siblings Theatre to Present PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILESeven Siblings Theatre to Present PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE
by BWW News Desk - Jan 27, 2016

For their first production in 2016, Seven Siblings Theatre will present Picasso at the Lapin Agile, a surreal comedy written by legendary comic/actor/screenwriter, Steve Martin. Set in a bar in 1904 Paris, Picasso at the Lapin Agile imagines a meeting of Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in their youth, just before they each made their greatest contributions to society. One year later, Einstein publishes his Special Theory of Relativity, and in 1907, Picasso would go on to paint Les D'emoiselles D'Avignon. This irreverent comedy is both hilarious and poignant as the regulars and bar staff chime in on subjects such as love, art, the nature of genius, and what the future might hold. (more...)

BWW Blog: Parker Hughes - An Actors Ode to TechiesBWW Blog: Parker Hughes - An Actors Ode to Techies
by Guest Blogger: Parker Hughes - Feb 3, 2016

I can't use a hammer. I don't know how to use a power saw. I'm not familiar with how mics work, and probably would not be able to mic myself, let alone anyone else. The most  know about lighting is pulling a cord on a lamp. But that's okay, because I'm an actor. I'm a writer. I'm a dancer, and I'm a director. I'm much better at "painting the picture" than painting the set piece. However, don't think I'm neglecting tech all together. My senior year I plan to tech my first show, but for now, I'm content where I am. There's also the fact that I'm not very good at tech. I don't know what makes me bad at it, I just know that I am. But there are people out there who are brilliant techies. I mean, absolute technical Geniuses. It amazes me, seeing as tech theatre has protocols and rules and directions, and yet holds so much creativity. (more...)
