BWW Recap: GAME OF THRONES Raises Some Eyebrows in 'Book of the Stranger'
by Jessica Naftaly - May 16, 2016

This week's episode of Game of Thrones just aired, entitled “Book of the Stranger,” a title that had little to do with the episode besides a not so subtle namedrop halfway through. This episode delivered more of what Thrones is seemingly becoming more about; shocks, deaths, quips and nudity, and less of what it originally was; a human and complex drama. Despite Game of Thrones insistence that this year, women will be “on top,” we were once again force fed faux-feminism doubling as “empowerment,” while it double downed on it's misogyny, racism, and plain nonsensical storytelling.

BWW Review: MONEY MONSTER Can't Buy Happiness, But It Is a 98 Minute Good Time
by Natalie de la Garza - May 14, 2016

Imagine an AU where CNBC's Jim Cramer, as played by George Clooney, is confronted by one of those people he (in)famously encouraged to buy stock in Bear Stearns right before it collapsed back in '08. Said person has lost everything and is understandably upset and unfortunately armed. And let's say in this world Bear Stearns, which we'll call Ibis Clear Capital, is run by someone like money-laundering, ponzi scheme-orchestrating Allen Stanford, formerly of the Stanford Financial Group and currently of a United States federal prison. Got it? If so, then you've got MONEY MONSTER. (more...)

BWW Review: ONE SLIGHT HITCH Courts The 80's in Austin Texas
by Amy Bradley - May 12, 2016

Making it's regional debut in Austin TX, Paradox Players delights Austinites with ONE SLIGHT HITCH. Performed at the quaint and appropriate location of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Austin at Howson Hall Theater, Bethke Stage, director Matthew Burnett executes this patronizing patriarchy prancing about the stage. Begging the audience to remember what their living room looked like in the 80's -this farce, written by the funny man himself Lewis Black, delivers on comic diversity as it toggles between with laugh out loud jokes and sophisticatedly written puns about the culture and atmosphere surrounding the era of mall-rats. It's the summer of 1981 - and the conservative Colemans, who are naturally from Cincinnati, are preparing for their daughter Courtney's wedding. Conveniently located in their backyard, Delia (played by Mary Kennelly) runs around madly with a clipboard making sure all details have been accounted for and that nothing ruins this very special day! Alas, the doorbell rings and all hell breaks loose. In the Reagan era of a picture-perfect family, when the internet had not yet given us knowledge of just about everything, we watch as the day unravels into the unexpected comedy Lewis Black intended.
