BWW Review: Swapping Hats and Inducing Hilarity with CDG's THE 39 STEPS
by Kristen Morale - May 3, 2016

Loosely based on the 1915 novel written by John Buchan, later made into the 1935 movie directed by Alfred Hitchcock and gradually turned into a staged comical farce in 2005 by Patrick Barlow, The 39 Steps is something quite wonderful to see when brought about by a gifted director and a very talented cast of four that could bring about such a myriad of wacky characters. Director Scott Hamilton, as he states in his curtain speech, was certain that he wanted to lead this show towards its absolute comedic potential, and now writing in hindsight, it is clear that he manages to do just that give quite an optimistic start to what will be a rather epic new season at the Chatham Drama Guild. In relation to that and just to mention, the Guild has been offering wonderful performances since the time Hitchcock's movie was made, so this show is sure not to disappoint anybody who enjoys an innocent and rather traditional form of visual, laugh-loud-comedy.

BWW Review: GIRL OF THE GOLDEN WEST at Theatreworks
by Christi Esterle - May 2, 2016

I admit it, melodrama is something of a guilty pleasure of mine. I don't mean 'melodrama' in the way you're thinking, with audiences booing and hissing the mustache-twirling villain as he ties some dewy blonde to the railroad tracks. I mean stories where everything-the characters, the situations, the emotions-are larger than life. It's one of the reasons I enjoy musicals so much; after all, what could be more melodramatic than singing out your feelings at the top of your lungs? (more...)

BWW Review: ANYTHING GOES at Goodspeed Opera House
by Joseph Harrison - May 2, 2016

Some musicals make you think, some make you cry, while others just give you a permanent smile on your face for the duration of the show. The latter was the state of this reviewer as we set sail on the S.S. American for a rollicking "Bon Voyage" in Goodspeed Musicals' opening show of the 2016 season, ANYTHING GOES. This production is truly "De-Lovely" and lives up to the standard and quality that audiences are used to experiencing in the intimate, beautiful setting that is the Goodspeed Opera House. (more...)

BWW Blog: Eliza Porsella - Fun, Stress and Nerve-Racking
by Guest Blogger: Elizabeth Porsella - May 19, 2016

Just as I predicted, we were called for a special rehearsal of the Duloc number the day after chorus ended.  We learned almost all of the second half of the number. The next day, at our weekly rehearsal, we practiced the Duloc number again while blocking the show. When we tried, everything we had learned in the morning practice had gone out the window. We remembered the steps, we just couldn't remember the order. It didn't help that the girl playing Lord Farquaad was absent. She yells out words like "Boom!" "Bam!" "Pow!" Each word has a step happening at the same time. The words help us remember when each step happens and which step we have to do. (more...)

Dead Writers Theatre Collective brings a new level of appreciation to the Oscar Wilde classic, The Importance of Being Earnest, opening July 1 at The Athenaeum Theatre.

by BWW News Desk - Apr 29, 2016

Gregory B. Dickerson, the author of STEVEN, wears many hats; however, the title of author was unforeseen until he began writing from his gut and his heart.
