by Ashley Steves - Oct 13, 2016

Ask Celia Berk what she loves about New York and she'll give you a list. Or, better yet, an album. Corporate executive by day, cabaret chanteuse by night (and a damn good one), Berk has won a MAC Award (New York Debut – Female), a Bistro Award (Vocalist), a BWW Award (NY Cabaret Debut), and The Margaret Whiting Award from The Mabel Mercer Foundation since her 2014 debut album You Can't Rush Spring. Her latest, Manhattan Serenade, is an eclectic collection of New York and New York-esque songs steeped in nostalgia and romance, complete with arrangements by Alex Rybeck and a stunning orchestra. Extended by popular demand, Berk will celebrate its release once more at the Metropolitan Room this Friday, October 14 at 7:00 pm. Before the show, we sat down for a discussion on her love note to New York, carving out a space for yourself in the city, and typical New York resilience. (more...)

Barbara Pens THE LIGHT OF LIFE
by BWW News Desk - Nov 2, 2016

Everyone experiences times of feeling lonely, unhappy, depressed...like nothing's going right; and it's so easy during those times to fall into despair and just wallow in it. Those that come from a country background can probably remember being told to just 'pull yourself up by the bootstraps' or 'don't worry, be happy.' Oh, only if it were that simple. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 350 million people globally of all ages suffer from depression. WPG author Barbara (Barbie to family and friends...and this sweet lady has a lot of both) Monterrosa may just have the answer to chasing away those dark clouds that keep threatening to rain on our parade. In her latest book, 'The Light of Life,' Barbie shares how everyone can turn on 'The Light.' Much like flicking the switch and turning on a light bulb in a dark room, Barbie testifies how 'The Light' has allowed her to live a life full of enthusiasm, fun, love and passion with a family that includes a husband, four beautiful children, dogs, cats, chickens, and a calendar so heavy the magnet won't hold it on the refrigerator. Like most parents, Barbie's typical day includes packing lunches, catching buses, the chaos of looking for missing socks, doing forgotten homework, running (literally) to ball practices, chasing missed buses...you get the picture. But Barbie found 'The Light,' and when she learned how to apply it to her life, she found that it brought peace and comfort to what would be an otherwise chaotic world. Barbie's book 'The Light of Life' can be found online and in stores everywhere. (more...)

With bats in hand and led by a headstrong female reporter, the men of the Washington Senators deliver a power-packed, energized dance routine in 'Shoeless Joe' that reflects the charisma and passion displayed throughout the entire show.

BWW Review: Annex's PUNY HUMANS Drones on with Not Much to Say
by Jay Irwin - Apr 25, 2016

Slice of life plays, like "Puny Humans" currently playing at Annex Theatre, are difficult at best especially when focusing on one specific sub-culture such as Comic-Con attendees. You need something new to say about your subjects, you need to make your subjects empathetic and you need an over-arching reason for us to be looking at this particular slice of life. Unfortunately writers Bret Fetzer and Keiko Green fail at all three of those elements making their 2 hour and 45 minute show (yeah, you heard me) drone on. (more...)

In THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN MUSICAL, Jack Viertel takes about musicals, puts them back together, sings their praises, marvels at their unflagging inventiveness, and occasionally despairs over their more embarrassing shortcomings. In the process, he invites us to fall in love with the art form all over again by showing us how musicals happen, what makes them work, how they captivate audiences, and how one landmark show leads to the next-by design or by accident, by emulation or by rebellion from OKLAHOMA! to HAMILTON and onward.
