by Matt Tamanini - Sep 20, 2015

Through out the past week, BroadwayWorld has been brinigng you coverage of the 67th Annual Emmy Awards with a decidedly theatre-specific focus, and tonight will be no different.

BWW Review: TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE at Playhouse On Park
by Joseph Harrison - Oct 5, 2015

At the beginning of the premiere production of Playhouse on Park's seventh season, TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, we learn that we are present for the last class taught by Morrie Schwartz, and that Mitch Albom, the author of the book on which the play is based, will be the sole student. But seated in the audience, I felt that wasn't exactly true. I too, was a student of Morrie's, learning along with Mitch, the life lessons that he conveyed in such a straightforward and loving way.

BWW Recap: LIVE East Coast HEROES REBORN Recap 10/29
by Courtney Henley - Oct 29, 2015

Last week on HEROES REBORN, we watched as the collision of individual worlds continued to grow and escalate: Luke and Malina join forces on their quest to find Tommy (and save the future, of course); Katana Girl and Ren finally make it to the fortress where Katana Girl's father is a captive; Quentin finds his sister, but quickly loses his life; and HRG finds Hiro and heads back in time to #SaveTheCheerleader.

BWW Recap: All Those Florricks On THE GOOD WIFE
by Jacqueline Bublitz - Oct 26, 2015

Sometimes an episode of THE GOOD WIFE plays like a perfect day in bond court. That is to say, everything moves really quickly, and every resolution is neat - at least for one half of each equation. Tonight, loyal followers of THE GOOD WIFE, we got an episode Judge Schakowsky would be proud of. (more...)

BWW Recap: LIVE East Coast AMAZING RACE Recap 10/23
by Courtney Henley - Oct 23, 2015

The typical 'mandator 24-hour rest period' has gone right out the window for teams this week on THE AMAZING RACE! After last week's catastrophic (and I mean that in every sense of the word) Express Pass mistake by Tanner and Josh, I'm not sure how much more stress the teams (or myself, for that matter) can handle.  And yet, they're being forced to liase with lions and cage dive with crocodiles regardless! (more...)

BWW Recap: Courting and Cooking on THE GOOD WIFE
by Jacqueline Bublitz - Oct 19, 2015

I Forgot how funny THE GOOD WIFE is. How quick, and how cheeky. This is a fun show. The hour goes really fast when you're enjoying all the side-eye/eye-rolls/grimaces that these characters dish out to each other, whether they're mother and daughter, nearly-friends, or scheming political partners.

BWW Recap: Papa Don't Impeach on SCANDAL

BWW Recap: LIVE East Coast HEROES REBORN Recap
by Courtney Henley - Oct 15, 2015

Four episodes in, and we're finally starting to get to the meat of some of these characters! A lot has happened to our HEROES REBORN friends over the past few episodes: deaths, car crashes, ruined marriages, all that fun stuff. I'm hesitant to mourn any of our newly deceased EVO friends – they have super powers, who knows if they're actually gone for good! – but I am curious to see how their troubles translate for those on both sides of the EVO war (I'm calling it a war now).  (more...)

BWW Recap: Blind Spots and No-Go Zones on THE GOOD WIFE
by Jacqueline Bublitz - Nov 30, 2015

No matter how many episodes THE GOOD WIFE devotes to technology, there's always one more thing for me to think about. Tonight, 'Discovery' spends the hour addressing technology as both a reflector, and cultivator, of racism. Essentially - if what we are shown online is primarily a reflection of how we see ourselves, how responsible is technology for making us aware of our blind spots? (more...)

BWW Discussion: BWW Orlando Editors Discuss Beautiful CINDERELLA at Dr. Phillips Center
by Matt Tamanini - Nov 12, 2015

On Tuesday night, RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA opened a week-long run at Orlando's Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Running through Sunday, I was fortunate enough to attend the tour stop's opening night, as was fellow BWW Orlando editor Kimberly Moy. As we did when we discussed THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, first show of the 2014-2015 Orlando Broadway Series, we had a back-and-forth conversation about CINDERELLA. While I tend to look at things from a more historical and critical point of view, Kim is an admitted fan girl. (more...)

BWW Recap: Workplace Romances Spark and Fizzle on YOUNGER
by Matt Smith - May 12, 2015

All the Empirical office romances are getting a bit more complicated this week! Liza's romantic plot line (read: Josh) is once again pretty much sidelined for the episode in favor of focusing more on the work scene, wherein Liza juggles administrative duties, being a supportive gal pal to Bjonberg-adulteress Kelsey, babysitting Charles' kids (yeah, we'll get to that one) and, of course, maintaining her guise, which, as she bemoans to Maggie in one scene (who's also pretty much sidelined for the episode), is getting harder by the minute.  (more...)

BWW Review: Coyote Stageworks' Production of ART, at the Annenberg Theater, is Superbly Acted and Directed and Loaded with Dark Humor
by Audrey Liebross - Mar 28, 2016

In Coyote Stageworks' superb production of ART, a plain white painting that contains a bit of texture, and possibly, a few almost invisible tints, serves as the catalyst for three middle-aged men to examine their friendship.The expressions of emotion, whether through the writer's words or through the actors' inflections, body-language, physical altercations, and yelling back and forth, are so natural that I Forgot that these gentlemen were acting. They are so convincing that it is almost painful in spots to watch them attempt to destroy each other. (more...)

BWW Blog: Christopher Panella - Nobody Can Drag Me Down, Unapologetically Me
by Guest Blogger: Christopher Panella - Jun 2, 2016

The theatre world is full of people who would love to see you fail, people who want to watch you crash and burn. You constantly have to deal with foul personalities that refuse to see the progress and good in you. The world of theatre is just like the real world in that many of its inhabitants are negative in every meaning of the word, but that doesn't mean you have to be.  (more...)

BWW Interview: Janelle Lutz of THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE at The Firehouse Theatre
by Kyle Christopher West - Feb 18, 2016

This week, I sat down with Janelle Lutz backstage at The Firehouse Theatre, moments before she took the stage for her second (and final) dress rehearsal for THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE, which runs February 18th through March 6th. Lutz (pronounced 'loots,' although she doesn't correct those that rhyme her name with klutz) shared her affection for Julie Andrews' portrayal of the role in the 1967 movie, and admitted some intimidation in following in Sutton Foster's Broadway shoes. As we talked about her exciting stage opportunities around DFW, I couldn't help but observe how one of DFW's largest stage personalities is also one of the most sincere, humble performers I've had the chance to speak with. Upon the end of our conversation, when I gave Ms. Lutz the opportunity to add anything I may have overlooked, she thought for a moment and responded: 'I'd just like to say thank you to the Dallas theatre community. This is my family; they've taken huge chances on me.' (more...)
