BWW Review: Experiencing War in A PIECE OF MY HEART at The Annie Russell Theatre
by Kirsty Johnson - Feb 20, 2017

          Looking at a somewhat bare, sloped stage, the audience is warned of gunshots, explosions, and other triggering scenes: Clearly, this won't be an evening of light-hearted fun. But rather than scenes of gore and violence, A Piece of My Heart invites audiences to experience the emotions and lives of the women of the Vietnam War. (more...)

BWW Review: NCTC's BRIGHT HALF LIFE is Sweet but Lacks Engaging Characters
by Jay Irwin - Feb 20, 2017

The theater is filled with some of the greatest love stories, "Romeo and Juliet", "Mary's Wedding", and "Falsettos" just to name a few of my favorites. But in order to engage an audience in a love story you need to give them a reason to invest in the relationship whether that's through a specific circumstance or interesting characters. Unfortunately New Century Theatre Company's current production of "Bright Half Life" has neither of those. What it has is two average people going through moments in their relationship utilizing a storytelling device that I've seen done better and what results is a love story that's about as engaging as reading a collection of a vague acquaintance's Facebook posts about their love life.

BWW Review: Beautifully Sung WEST SIDE STORY
by Frank Benge - Feb 20, 2017

WEST SIDE STORY is historically one of the most important of American musicals, with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Its conception as a heavy dance piece came from original choreographer and director Jerome Robbins and is loosely based on William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The show also marked Sondheim's Broadway debut. With its dark subject matter, focusing on social problems, and sophisticated score, the show was a turning point in American Musical Theatre. Bernstein's score includes 'Something's Coming', 'Maria', 'Somewhere', 'Tonight', 'I Feel Pretty', and 'One Hand, One Heart', all of which have become part of the Great American Songbook. The original production was nominated for six Tony Awards including Best Musical in 1957. It was turned into a film in 1961, ultimately winning ten Oscars, including Best Picture. (more...)

BWW Interview: Will Holbrook Talks ROMEO AND JULIET and His Famous Grandpa
by Don Grigware - Feb 20, 2017

Will, your grandpa is a truly great actor, one of the best. What is it like to perform for him? How has he inspired you? Is he attentive to your needs - both giving and constructively critical ... or does he leave you on your own to overcome your own failures? Is he happy or unhappy that you have chosen the acting profession? It isn't particularly different for me having him in the audience. He is an inspirational figure to me because he loves what he does and he works hard. There are many lessons in watching him work at his senior age, and observing his passion to keep moving is an incredible thing. I am very glad we get to have the grandfather-grandson relationship we do, and he is always asking me how he can help or if I have any questions. He has always been my grandpa first, and it is very comforting to know that I have someone who I can ask anything, about life or about the business. I think he is happy for me that I am pursuing my passion, and he sees where my heart is at, in the work and (more...)

Franklin Lakes Preschoolers Raise Money with Their Art Auction
by BWW News Desk - Feb 20, 2017

Preschool Art Auction Raises $2,500 for Make-A-Wish Foundation. Each month, The Learning Experience in Franklin Lakes teaches their preschoolers about the importance of giving back and what it means to be a Good citizen in our local and global community. This month, on February 10th, The Learning Experience Preschool in Franklin Lakes hosted their annual BeCause our Hearts Beat Art Auction, one of their favorite philanthropic events of the year. Tying in Valentine's Day and American Heart Month, their preschoolers created heart art and sold it to benefit Make-A-Wish, a charity dedicated to the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, to enrich their experience with hope, strength and joy. Parents visited the auction to purchase their child's art and made a donation. The Children were so excited to show off their masterpieces and they were very happy to be helping sick children with all the donations. The preschool students raised over $2,500 for Make-A-Wish this year. TLE Franklin Lakes also partnered with local businesses and raise an additional $1,600 in raffle prizes. Local partners include: The Soccer Post, Stop & Shop, White Maple Café, Moxie Ridgewood, Uncle Louie's Pizza, Parian & Sons Jewelry, Kayal Orthopedic Center, Environmental Mechanical Tech, Franklin Lakes Pizza, Hand And Stone Massage, Lisa's Mediterranean Cuisine. All year long TLE works on philanthropy lessons with the help of Grace The Greyhound and Charity Chihuahua, the lovable and hug-gable dog mascots for philanthropy. The philanthropy curriculum at The Learning Experience, helps teach children that it is not how big or small you are, it is the size of your heart that matters. Through animation, classroom activities and participatory songs, Grace and Charity introduce children to topics like the value of helping others, volunteering and donating. Owner Dilek Yesilyurt says of the event, 'It is so important to me to teach our young children both creativity and compassion for others. I feel a huge sense of happiness and pride knowing that our students, as young as 3, can understand why we must help others and that we are making a positive impact for sick children. We focus so much of early education on academics, which are hugely important, but we must not forget to feed these young children's character development as well. This event is one of my favorite things that we do all year and I love seeing how proud our students are of their artwork and how happy they are they are helping other children.' Nationwide Preschoolers at The Learning Experience Centers raise awareness for children-focused charities nationwide each year, including more than $500,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation last year. About The Learning Experience The Learning Experience is one of the nation's fastest growing academies of early education for children ages six weeks to five years old. With a greater national emphasis on educational development during the most crucial years of a child's growth, The Learning Experience places a prominent focus on programs that advance scholastic preparation.
