BWW Review: STAGES St. Louis' Wonderfully Funny IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU
by Chris Gibson - Jun 15, 2016

STAGES St. Louis celebrates their 30th year with a very funny musical that deserved a much better fate that the short run it had on Broadway, IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU. A play of sorts on the old song 'It Had to be You', this work is difficult to describe simply because there are so many farcical twists and turns that revealing any would spoil the experience. What I can tell you is how terrific this production is. It features a top notch cast that all seem to be having a great time, and why not? It's filled with clever lines and a fine score (music by Barbara Anselmi, book by Brian Hargrove and lyrics by Hargrove, Jill Abramovitz, Michael Cooper, Carla Rose Fisher, Ernie Lijoi, and Will Randall) that's catchy and really fits the show well. I will provide a brief synopsis, but suffice to say, this might be considered the Murphy's Law of shows that feature a wedding. But, you can't go wrong by taking in this superbly rendered presentation, and I heartily recommend that you see it! (more...)

In any election year but especially this one, certain topics are fraught with emotion and high stakes. Immigration is one of those topics, and theatre is a way to approach it safely but meaningfully. As a theatre company that recently emigrated back to the United States from Australia, Ward Theatre Company is perhaps exceptionally well suited to explore immigration on the stage, and it does so through "I Wish You a Boat," its original and trademark production.

BWW Review: Star-Powered A RAISIN IN THE SUN at the Ruskin Group Theater
by Shari Barrett - Aug 13, 2016

What makes the current production at the Ruskin Group Theatre in Santa Monica so special is its Tony Award winning director Lita Gaithers Owens cast Tony Award nominee Starletta DuPois as Lena "Mama" Younger. DuPois has a long history with A RAISIN IN THE SUN having first been cast as Beneatha, then became known for her role as Ruth in the acclaimed American Playhouse film version, and now Mama. "A true gift at this point in my career is having experienced the life of this play through three extraordinary women characters that the playwright created," DuPois shared. In fact, her emotional and physical understanding of the role so central to the play was thrilling to experience as her entire physical presence totally embodied Mama right down to every moment of her joys, heartbreak, anger, and love for her children, as if DuPois was channeling Mama from her very soul.

New Paranormal Romance Novel ABIKU: A BATTLE OF GODS is Released
by BWW News Desk - Aug 1, 2016

Erotica, fantasy and paranormal fiction have all enjoyed huge resurgences as of late, with franchises such as 'Thor' building global, loyal bands of followers. But what would happen if all of these genres crawled under the bedsheets, did the dirty and emerged intertwined? Just ask Elizabeth Salawu, author of 'Abiku: A Battle of Gods'.

Synopsis: She was called an Abiku, an evil spirit sent to this world to lure men to their doom Dayo is a bi-racial twenty something year old with a German mom and a Nigerian dad. She has a semi bougie lifestyle, always jetting across the pond between Africa and Europe. She starts dating her father's driver in secret after seducing him. On her return from her cousin's 21st birthday in Manchester, she tries gbana (crack) for the first time. She finds herself in an alternate realm and thinks she's hallucinating from using gbana. She doesn't take anything that happens there seriously as she thinks she's having a vivid dream. That is until she couldn't wake up from Getting Married to a 'man' she met in that realm... 'People might look at this and think it's just another book of erotic fiction - but it's so much more!' proclaims the author. 'It's very much out-of- this world, including characters such as the Yoruba god of thunder Sango who is more or less Thor from a different culture. I see it as the perfect adventure for those who've always fantasized about making out with Thor!' Continuing, 'Initial feedback to the beta manuscript has been fantastic. The novel is currently in its pre-order phase and I'm expecting the response to be huge. There's literally nothing else like it out there.'

BWW Review: THE ADDAMS FAMILY is a Witty, Tuneful Boy Meets Ghoul Story
by Frank Benge - Aug 1, 2016

Few creations have enjoyed the cultural longevity of Charles Addams characters The Addams Family. This satirical inversion of the typical American family was first introduced back in 1938 as a series of 150 single panel cartoons in the pages of The New Yorker that continued until Addams' death in 1988. The characters, an eccentric clan that delights in the macabre and yet are totally unaware that others find them frightening or at the very least bizarre, have been adapted for other mediums multiple times: a 1964 television series, the 1973 and 1998 animated series, three feature films in the '90's, five video games, a pinball machine that remains the best selling of all time and in 2010, the Broadway musical THE ADDAMS FAMILY. The musical has a book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and is currently receiving a witty and tuneful local production at the Long Center by Summer Stock Austin.
