BWW Review: THE TOTALITARIANS: Too True to be Good
by Nancy Grossman - Sep 7, 2016

Gloucester Stage Company presents the New England premiere of Peter Sinn Nachtrieb's THE TOTALITARIANS, an over-the-top satire about an unqualified female political candidate wooing the electorate by promising 'Freedom from Fear.' GSC Managing Director Jeff Zinn makes his local directing debut and keeps everything moving at a good clip, and the four actors do what they can with a quartet of less than likable characters. If you like your humor broad, this may be the comic relief you seek during this chaotic election season. (more...)

BWW Review: THE 39 STEPS - The Art of Clowning
by Keith Waits - Sep 6, 2016

The subject of The 39 Steps isn't an innocent man being chased by spies across Scotland, and it isn't Alfred Hitchcock, although it serves as a fine pastiche of iconic Hitchcock moments. What seems to be on the mind of Patrick Barlow, adapting the 1938 movie more than John Buchan's classic novel, is theatre itself; the nonsensical artificiality that lies at the core of the theatrical experience. It invites us to not just recognize but embrace it in uproarious celebration. (more...)

BWW Review: Mildly Funny SCAB from Many Hats Goes Nowhere
by Jay Irwin - Sep 6, 2016

If you're going to put your personal problems up on stage then, please, have a reason for telling them, some kind of journey or growth, and/or make them interesting. Unfortunately the issues put forth in Sheila Callaghan's play "Scab", currently playing as the inaugural Seattle production from Many Hats Theatre, have none of those elements. Instead, the main character rambles on and waxes poetic about how depressed and confused she is for two hours and ultimately learns nothing resulting in one of my biggest pet peeves in theater, someone else's therapy on stage.

BWW Feature: New Theatre Jacksonville Technical Director Designs Austen
by Michael Lipp - Sep 26, 2016

Jon Jory's adaptation of Jane Austen's PRIDE & PREJUDICE posed significant scenic and lighting design challenges for Theatre Jacksonville's new Technical Director, Tim Watson. 'You've got about 25 locations and you can literally change from one to another on a single line,' Watson explains. 'There's no way you can do full sets for each location, but it's written that way - to be minimal. It's difficult to jump between so many locations and be so fast and so fluid. Jon Jory didn't want black-out scene changes, so it's more of an environment rather than actual locations.' Director Amy Canning agrees and calls the show 'very minimalist, but seriously complex with lots of moving parts and pieces.' (more...)

The love and selflessness the citizens of Gander and Newfoundland had for all of the foreign travelers is astonishing. The locals 'took in' and fed 6,579 stranded passengers, which was half the size of the town's population. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Sep 12, 2016

Award-winning pianist and composer Peter Manning Robinson will enthrall audiences with a stunning aural and visual art experience on Wednesday, October 19, 2016 at MOCA Grand in Downtown Los Angeles: The Refractor Piano Concert at MOCA. Performing live with his invention, The Refractor Piano, Robinson is pioneering a new music form called "refracted music."

Robinson plays "improvised compositions" within the refractions generated by his newly created instrument. The music combines elements of neoclassical composition and jazz improvisation that, when acoustically refracted, produce a truly original and transcendent live music experience. To learn more about the artist and the concert please visit www.petermanningrobinson.com. (more...)
