BWW Review: Seattle Public's GROUNDED Soars into the Blue
by Jay Irwin - Mar 27, 2017

Anytime a theater does a one person show it's a risky proposition. You, of course, need the right piece. You need a Good set that doesn't detract from the lone performer on stage. You need Good direction of that performer so it doesn't feel too static. And most importantly, you need a performer who can grab ahold of the audience right away and lead them on their journey. Well lucky for Seattle Public Theater and for us, they have all those things and then some with their current production of "Grounded", a production that will shake you to your core. (more...)

BWW Review: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis Rocks the House with MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET
by Chris Gibson - Mar 27, 2017

I've seen MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET several times, and I've always enjoyed the experience, even though it's a heavily fictionalized version of the day four music icons gathered in the studio that started their careers. If you've ever heard the original recordings that were made you know that Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash gathered around the piano (which Elvis played) and sang familiar gospel tunes. But, Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux (both contributed to the book, which came from Mutrux's original concept) use the reunion as a way to tell the story of Sun studios, and in particular, Sam Phillips, while generously sprinkling in some great music and a number of actual facts along the way. The result is a show that gives you what you really wanted; the opportunity to see these cats rock out together. The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis closes their 50th anniversary season with an amazing production of this jukebox musical. I've honestly never heard it sound as Good as it does here, and some of the arrangements seem to have been tweaked a bit too. Truly a fabulous way to close a monumentally fine season. (more...)

In this ever-changing society of ours it's nice to see shows that take a look at different kinds of love and families.

BWW Review: Charming but Flawed FINDING NEVERLAND Searches for Magic
by Michael L. Quintos - Mar 27, 2017

A charming though perplexing adaptation of the 2004 film, FINDING NEVERLAND jets into too many erratic directions at any given moment and doesn't gel completely as a whole. And for all its gorgeous, visual splendor, it is surprisingly lacking in honest-to-Goodness stage magic. The touring version of the 2015 Broadway stage musical adaptation continues at OC's Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa through April 2, 2017. (more...)

BWW Review: Kennedy Center Hosts Palestinian Artist Raeda Taha's WHERE CAN I FIND SOMEONE LIKE YOU, ALI?
by Andrew White - Mar 27, 2017

For years the word "Palestinian" has been synonymous with terror; it hasn't occurred to the mainstream media that beyond the headlines, and just out of the camera's view, are families-many of them now fatherless-struggling to survive and maintain their identity in a world that has grown increasingly hostile to their very existence. Raeda Taha's brilliant autobiographical one-woman show, 'Where Can I Find Someone Like You, Ali?,' provides us with a narrative that is as timely as it is necessary. (more...)

BWW Review: MRS. MANNERLY is a Sweetly Comic Story of Youth
by Frank Benge - Mar 27, 2017

MRS. MANNERLY, a memory play by Jeffrey Hatcher, takes inspiration from the playwright's memories of a childhood etiquette class that he took at the tender young age of ten. Walking with an etiquette book balanced on your head, learning complex table settings with a confounding array of flatware and stemware, and dropping a quarter in a jar each time you interrupt...those were the ways of Mrs. Mannerly's classes in 1967. Mrs. Mannerly (Jennifer Underwood) has high standards; so high, in fact, that not one student in her thirty-six years of teaching proper deportment has ever achieved perfection. Young Jeffrey (Suzanne Balling) wants to be the first and he has a trick up his sleeve that he thinks makes him a shoe-in to achieve that sought after goal... he has discovered Mrs. Mannerly has a secret past.

YA Novel, 'The Girl Who Flew Away' by Val Muller is Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2017

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit fiction publisher, today announced the paperback and eBook release of 'The Girl Who Flew Away,' a YA novel by author Val Muller of Northern Virginia. Muller's other works include 'The Scarred Letter,' a YA reboot of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic American novel 'The Scarlett Letter,' as well as 'Faulkner's Apprentice,' 'The Man With the Crystal Ankh,' and the 'Corgi Capers' series. No Good deed goes unpunished when freshman Steffie Brenner offers to give the awkward new neighbor girl a ride home after her first day at school. When her older sister Ali stops at a local park to apply for a job, Steffie and Madison slip out of the car for a walk-and Madison vanishes. Already in trouble for a speeding ticket, Ali insists that Steffie say nothing about Madison's disappearance. Even when Madison's mother comes looking for her. Even when the police question them. Some secrets are hard to hide, though-especially with Madison's life on the line. As she struggles between coming clean or going along with her manipulative sister's plan, Steffie begins to question whether she or anyone else is really who she thought they were. After all, the Steffie she used to know would never lie about being the last person to see Madison alive-nor would she abandon someone in the woods: alone, cold, injured, or even worse. But when Steffie learns an even deeper secret about her own past, a missing person seems like the least of her worries.

BWW Review: Festival Ballet's Stunning CARMEN, Up Close on Hope
by Andria Tieman - Mar 27, 2017

CARMEN is a classic story, and one that Festival Ballet has mounted before with great success due to the talents of resident choreographer Viktor Plotinkov and dancers Jennifer Ricci and Mindaugas Bauzys. This time around, the grand production is shrunk down to fit into the black box theatre on Hope Street, which strips away most of the sets and dramatic lighting and leaves the viewer with a production which is minimalist but powerful. The principal dancers rotate each performance, so every one is a unique experience. The Friday night premiere featured Eugenia Zinovieva as Carmen, Alex Lantz as Don Jose and Kirsten Evans as Micaela. (more...)

BWW Review: Larry Shue's THE NERD at Chaffin's Barn
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 26, 2017

Larry Shue's The Nerd brings with it a fairly healthy and reasonably impressive theater pedigree: more than 400 performances on Broadway, critical acclaim and audience adulation for its West End run (in fact, it was the most successful American play running there in 1986), scores of regional and community theater productions and it was the follow-up to his wonderfully funny and politically prescient The Foreigner. But like so many things that were popular during the 1980s - the "abdominizer," Cabbage Patch kids and friendship bracelets, Jelly shoes and Jordache jeans - time hasn't been so great to The Nerd and we're left wondering, incredulously and imploringly, "What the hell?"
