BWW Review: AN OCTOROON, Orange Tree Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - May 25, 2017

An Octoroon is a person who has one-eighth black heritage. In 1850s Louisiana, that meant they are automatically unclean and, ultimately, a slave. Branden Jacobs-Jenkins radically reimagines Dion Boucicault's 1859 play based upon a tragic and rather melodramatic love story between white plantation owner George and his uncle's illegitimate daughter Zoe. Entwined in this is the apparent financial ruin of the plantation, which leads to a series of racially motivated violent events. (more...)

FAVOURITE SONGS: 'Solidarity', BILLY ELLIOT
by Tim Wright - May 15, 2017

So why have I picked 'Solidarity' as my favourite song from a musical? I mean, it's hardly the best known - you won't find people on Britain's Got The X Factor singing it or countless YouTube covers of it. It won't even be on Michael Ball's new album and he really must be running out of tunes now. It's just not that sort of number. (more...)
