From its stunning Broadway premiere in 1968, Hair defined the "rock musical," exuberantly celebrating the hippie counterculture, anti-war movement and sexual revolution of the 1960s with a rainbow score of hits - including "Aquarius," "Good Morning Starshine," and "Easy to be Hard" - that have become ingrained in pop culture. Let down your long, beautiful hair, pull out the tie-dye and celebrate this groundbreaking American journey as we "Let the Sunshine In!"



HAIR features a book and lyrics by Gerome Ragni and James Rado and music by Galt MacDermot, and tells the story of a group of young Americans searching for love and peace during the Vietnam era, HAIR is a timeless portrait of a movement that changed the world. Its groundbreaking rock score paved the way for some of the greatest musicals of our time. The 2009 revival, directed by Diane Paulus, won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical. The Drama Desk, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle also honored the production with their 2009 award for Outstanding Revival of a Musical.

BWW Recap: Phil Takes The Dunphys to Awesomeland on MODERN FAMILYBWW Recap: Phil Takes The Dunphys to Awesomeland on MODERN FAMILY
by Matt Smith - Oct 30, 2014

It's the annual Halloween episode, and given MODERN FAMILY's previous Day of the Dead-themed outings, I've got high hopes for this one. Holiday episodes in general can go either way — because you've got a broad holiday that everyone can relate to, but then you have to tailor it to that specific show and those characters. Again, MODERN FAMILY has some pretty good outings, but with the holiday repeatedly coming every year, the decision to do a Halloween episode every season means continually having to work with this same formula — except that they then can't do what they did the previous year, but of course, are still working around the same holiday.

The Persaud Girls Four-Book Series is LaunchedThe Persaud Girls Four-Book Series is Launched
by BWW News Desk - Oct 30, 2014

Readers of the Persaud Girls four-book series can expect to experience a 'different side of Jamaican fiction' according to author Teisha Mott, who says her work focuses 'not on the familiar cultural themes, for example, of life in rural Jamaica or obeah,' but rather on love, marriage and the coming of age of four women who are not only rich but beautiful. 'I like the romance genre and have always wanted to write books that explore this area of Jamaican life. We do not produce many books of this type on the island,' says Mott. The author, who grew up in the Parish of St. Ann, says she has been an avid reader since the age of four. 'I wrote my first 'novel' at nine years old because I was frustrated with the storyline of a book I was reading at the time. I have always wanted to write books that I, and people like me, would want to read.' The four books: The Bet, Just Perfect, On Time and For Keeps, invite readers on a journey into the love lives of Andie, Samantha, Klao and Bianca Persaud. They are cousins who seem to have it all - good looks, brains, personality, and they all belong to a super rich, upper class Jamaican family. Their quest for love takes them from the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies, to Ocho Rios and New York as the author explores issues such as sexual attraction and Christianity as well as fertility and the male ego. -2- The Persaud Girls The Books The Bet (2000): Andie is the pale skinned black sheep of the Persaud family, who suddenly starts to get lots of attention from a certain popular boy on UWI campus. Does he see something special in her, or perhaps his intentions aren't exactly honourable? Just Perfect! (2003): Samantha is the 'perfect girl' - perfect Hair, perfect face, perfect attitude, perfect boyfriend - until one phone call turns her perfect world upside down. On Time (2008): Klao just wants to meet Mr Right, but it is Mr. Wrong in every respect who comes into her life right 'On Time' and sets her on the right path. For Keeps (2013): Bianca wants to start a family, but when her attempts to conceive prove futile, she begins to wonder whether it is possible to love what you have when you can't get what you really want. Mott, who took a break from writing to read for a BSc in Management Studies and Economics, and an MBA in Finance and Banking at the University of the West Indies in Kingston, Jamaica, now lives and works in Paris, France. She spends her spare time reading and travelling. All titles in the Persaud Girl Series are available on amazon.com in paperback and digital format. They can also be ordered by email at persaudgirl@live.com or by telephoning 1 876 399 3109. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Thrilling JEKYLL & HYDE at CandlelightBWW Reviews: Thrilling JEKYLL & HYDE at Candlelight
by Don Grigware - Oct 28, 2014

For some inexplicable reason, composer Frank Wildhorn frequently gets a bad rap, accused of copying from other composers or just being a giant step below the quality of say, Stephen Sondheim, Kander & Ebb, or Jerry Herman, among others. Many forget Wildhorn is responsible for the beautiful music of The Scarlet Pimpernel, Dracula the Musical and more recently, Bonnie and Clyde, as well as Jekyll & Hyde. Wildhorn's popular tunes, especially the ballads are glorious, verging on opera and stand on their own as hits, such as 'This Is the Moment', 'Once Upon a Dream', 'In His Eyes' and 'A New Life' all from his Jekyll & Hyde score. Combining talent with great lyricist / book writer Leslie Bricusse is a little miracle, so Wildhorn comes up, in fact, a real winner. And in Candlelight's current stellar revival, the show is a darkly rich feast for the eyes and ears, just in time for Halloween. Jekyll & Hyde will play out its intriguing game of good versus evil at Candlelight through November 23. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Extraordinary Tony-Winning Revival of PIPPIN Somersaults into SoCalBWW Reviews: Extraordinary Tony-Winning Revival of PIPPIN Somersaults into SoCal
by Michael L. Quintos - Oct 28, 2014

Arguably, director Diane Paulus' greatest triumph to date is the spectacular new production of PIPPIN, the 2013 Tony-winning revival of Stephen Schwartz's trippy but winsome musical about the angst-riddled but hyper-aspirational young son of King Charlemagne, and his erratic, sometimes frustrating journey of self-discovery. In her marvelously inventive, re-imagined update---now playing at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood through November 9---Paulus brilliantly orients the topsy-turvy machinations of the entire story within the canvas-lined confines of a big-top circus. Here, the over-the-top performance troupe that 'guides' our hero's search for self-fulfillment aren't merely just actors (or 'players') but are also all agile, athletic circus performers that tumble, leap, and balance themselves for our (and Pippin's) entertainment pleasure. As expected, both Pippin and the audience are equally lulled into submission. (more...)
