BWW Preview: Take a Bite of DRACULA FOR DUMMYS at the Provincetown Theater
by Kristen Morale - Oct 8, 2016

Vampires have become such an essential part of American culture, even if they are only fictional beings; from one of the first allusion to them in Polidori's The Vampyre to more modern takes on this age-old creature, it is amazing how vampires have become the talk of the town - the town being in movies, the written word and now, in this premiere on Cape Cod. DiVincenzo understands their importance, making reference to the Lugosi's famous film legacy. 'I feel like it's a timeless story. Dracula is an icon. I think it's an indelible mark that 1931 film made in our culture. What we're giving [audiences] now is a much younger approach to the Dracula story.' (more...)

BWW Review: ANYTHING GOES at Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre
by Marakay Rogers - Oct 23, 2016

Most eighty-some-year-olds creak a bit, but others really get around, and that's the truth about ANYTHING GOES. Cole Porter is, of course, one of the great lyrical geniuses of history, which is a huge part of the reason, but there's another truth about it - heavily worked-over as the book was, and has been, it hasn't aged badly... possibly because it's purely frothy silliness, like GUYS AND DOLLS. In this day, however, the frothy silliness is almost realistic, since part of the plot revolves around hysterical celebrity-worship. Is that young man really Public Enemy Number One? Grab a selfie with him before the police get him! Wait, he's not a famous criminal? Well, then, get him out of our way! (more...)

BWW Review: Cabaret Celebrates Stephen Sondheim in Night Two of the Mabel Mercer Foundation Cabaret Convention (10/19)
by Ashley Steves - Oct 21, 2016

Hold your hats and hallelujah. After an electrifying opening night, the Mabel Mercer Foundation's 27th Annual Cabaret Convention continued Wednesday night in a packed Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Hosted by Jeff Harnar and Andrea Marcovicci, the cabaret community gathered to salute the music of Stephen Sondheim, the EGOT-winning composer/lyricist whose oeuvre has been simultaneously catapulting and tripping up artists for decades. Despite 30 performances on the evening, you'd be hard-pressed to find a weak spot in Wednesday night's lineup, hosting what is arguably the best rotation of the four nights, featuring cabaret giants, up-and-comers, expert arrangers (plus the talents of Jered Egan on bass and Dan Gross on drums), and Sondheim role originators.

BWW Review: The Stake is Raised High in Provincetown Theater's DRACULA FOR DUMMYS
by Kristen Morale - Oct 18, 2016

Did you ever wonder what would happen if the traditional Dracula story was made into something so perfectly absurd that it actually turns itself funny? If what is meant to be a frightening tale of the undead becomes a wacky, Barbie doll- infested, cross-dressing adventure that brings the quest to defeat the rather attractive Count Dracula to an entirely new level? Whereas the typically eerie feel of the Dracula tale will cause quite a few goose-bumps, Dracula for Dummys at the Provincetown Theater will bring on a major tingle of excitement because of how freakin' fun it is to be a part of this unique experience.

BWW Review: RUTHLESS THE MUSICAL Kills at Creative Cauldron
by Keith Tittermary - Oct 11, 2016

"Dying is easy, comedy is hard". The old adage has been attributed to countless comedians over the years. When a musical comedy attempts to combine comedy and death, the outcome can either be successful (think Monty Python) or fall on its face. Ruthless! The Musical, a 1992 off Broadway campy musical, which opened this week at Creative Cauldron in Falls Church, falls into the latter category. The intermission-less show written by Marvin Laird and Joel Paley has funny bits, and a few memorable songs, but overall the piece, which has had a successful life in regional theater, is just flat. Sure, it spoofs musicals like Gypsy and movies like All About Eve, but the humor is a bit rudimentary and plays more like a bad SNL skit, then a well-polished farce. (more...)
