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.

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. The Learning Experience prepares children academically and socially via innovative scholastic and enrichment programs such as the L.E.A.P. curriculum, a cutting-edge proprietary approach to learning which has more than 95 percent of its children graduating preschool reading at a Kindergarten level or higher. To complement the academic curriculum, The Learning Experience utilizes various enrichment programs crucial to advancing learning and overall balance, such as philanthropy, Yippee 4 Yoga, Music 4 Me, Movin' N Groovin', manners and etiquette, and foreign language. https://thelearningexperience.com/our-centers/nj/franklin-lakes/franklin-lakes www.facebook.com/TheLearningExperienceFranklinLakes/ (more...)

J.P. Reese Shares 'Everything Made Perfect'
by BWW News Desk - Feb 16, 2017

First-time author J.P. Reese offers readers a gripping and potent journey of success, failure, devotion, and intrigue in 'Everything Made Perfect,' a novel that dissects the inner workings of true love gone sour when memories fade and malice rises to the forefront. Reese explores the social and mental changes that affect a later-in-life marriage between two creative but ultimately dissatisfied Midwest retirees and their families. Unlike most books dealing with a character's descent into the shadowlands of Alzheimer's disease, 'Everything Made Perfect' sheds light on an ugly reality: Not all caretakers choose to actually care for the afflicted, and sometimes the patient can exact vengeance on the strong. Characters come to life as weaknesses and motives are revealed, because in the Frank and Christine Grimes' household, nothing is ever as it seems. (more...)

BWW Review: Steppenwolf's STRAIGHT WHITE MEN Examine Their Role in Society
by Patrick Rybarczyk - Feb 15, 2017

As you walk into the theatre for Steppenwolf's production of Jean Lee's Straight White Men, you are offered ear plugs. Why? There is extremely loud music playing and it contains lyrics that could certainly be considered offensive to some. Starting off this way has likely, as we are told by two gender fluid actors, made 'some of you' uncomfortable. The idea is that we all live in varying levels of comfort in our society based on our race, sexual identity, or social status. (more...)

BWW Review: THE DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT Marries Tradition and Contemporary Opera
by Amy Bradley - Feb 14, 2017

Austin Opera's second show this season, THE DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT welcomes Marie (performed by Rachele Gilmore) and 1,500 adopted fathers known as the 21st Regiment. The Long Center's stage is vast, however the regiment is fabulously represented by a chorus of  30 men with sergeant Sulpice at the helm. In the mountains of Tyrolean, Marie's journey to Happiness is a mixture of Annie Get Your Gun and My Fair Lady with a French twist. Marie is rough around the edges, understandable for any young woman raised by a regiment of soldiers. However, after she meets the charming Tonio (performed by Rene Barbera), her 'fathers' discover he is a member of the enemy and literally drag him away. Marie's heart is true, as she wants to keep her word to marry a member of the regiment ( we will put aside the fact that they are all her father), despite her young love and affection for Tonio.  (more...)
