BWW Interview: Autumn Bodily of FOLLIES at Conejo Players Theatre
by Cary Ginell - Nov 30, 2015

Like many Ventura County performers, Autumn Bodily has a long career in local theater. She started as a teenager in 1986 with Young Artists Ensemble in one of their earliest productions. Autumn made her Conejo Players debut in 1989 in Annie before getting married at 22 and moving around the state. She attended college and grad school, had children, and worked as a company member for the Sierra Repertory Theatre in Sonora. Her next move took her and her family from Northern California to San Diego where she worked for the La Jolla Playhouse doing page-to-stage productions. While there, she worked on many shows that would later progress to Broadway. In 2006, she performed in the musical version of Doctor Zhivago, working with composer Lucy Simon and director Des McAnuff. The show had a brief run this past spring on Broadway but only lasted for 23 performances. Since she returned to the Conejo Valley, she has performed in a variety of community theater productions, including Cabaret (Camarillo Skyway Playhouse) as Fraulein Kost and Damn Yankees (Conejo Players) as Gloria Thorpe. Autumn plays the role of Sally Durant Plummer in the Conejo Players Theatre's current production of Follies. (more...)

BWW Interview: Michigan Native Teri Hansen Says THE SOUND OF MUSIC Will Fill Your Heart with Joy at Fisher Theatre!
by Katie Laban - May 9, 2016

Michigan native Teri Hansen loves performing in The Sound of Music because the audiences are just as emotionally involved in the show as she is. "When the curtain goes up, there is an audible gasp because of this gorgeous set and beautiful start," she said. "Then we really start to tell this tale; this dangerous and urgent story, yet a love story as well. You can feel the audience right at the beginning of the show and during it they are edging forward on their seats until the end when they are on their feet going right over the mountain with the Von Trapp family."

BWW Blog: Emma Mueller - Let the Chips Fall Where They May
by Guest Blogger: Emma Mueller - May 3, 2016

I sat on a bench by myself beside a winding staircase and several closed doors, where other 17-year-olds like me were pouring their hearts out in audition room. I smoothed my dark blue dress and twisted my perfectly curled hair in between my fingers anxiously. My right leg was crossed over my left, and my foot was tapping the air sporadically as if that would help ease the nerves. I looked at the clock and only 30 seconds had passed since I had last checked the time.  (more...)

BWW Reviews: CABARET brilla al Teatro Nuovo di Verona
by Valeria Venturelli - Mar 9, 2016

Dal 2 al 4 marzo il tour italiano di 'CABARET' della Compagnia della Rancia ha fatto tappa al Teatro Nuovo di Verona. Il musical del 1966 di John Kander e Fred Ebb, ispirato al romanzo 'Addio a Berlino' di Christopher Isherwood, e stato tradotto in italiano e riadattato dalla compagnia di Saverio Marconi e da mesi gira l'Italia in un tour carico di successi. La trama, ambientata nella Berlino del 1931, ruota attorno alle vicende del Kit Kat Klub, del suo Emcee (Maestro delle Cerimonie), della ballerina e attrice inglese vorrei-ma-non-posso Sally Bowles e del giovane insegnante americano Cliff Bradshaw appena giunto in citta. La storia d'amore tra i due si alterna ai numerosi numeri di cabaret che animano il Kit Kat Klub, mentre il clima politico e l'avanzata del nazismo vanno lentamente ad invadere ogni aspetto della vita dei protagonisti.

BWW Review: Collide Theatrical Dance Company Delivers a Deliciously Dark New Take on DRACULA through a Collision of Dance, Music, and Theater
by Jill Schafer - Mar 14, 2016

Collide Theatrical Dance Company is now in their fourth season of creating 'original Broadway-style jazz dance musicals.' As a theater geek who doesn't know much about dance but loves to watch it, Collide provides an accessible and theatrical way to get into dance. I've seen all of their productions over the last four seasons, and their newest creation DRACULA may just be my favorite of them all. Collide is at their best when they let the dancing do the talking, as they do here, telling this modernized story of the iconic Dracula strictly through movement and music. A live band accompanies this fantastic troupe of dancers as they perform innovative and evocative choreography to a wide variety of popular songs reinvented to fit the story. Created by Artistic Director and choreographer Regina Peluso and director Joshua Campbell, this DRACULA truly is a perfect collision of dance, music, and theater to create a new and exciting form of storytelling.

BWW Review: JACK FERVER Mistakes The Kitchen for Camp
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 5, 2016

Jack Ferver never let up on his drag delivery. Switching arbitrarily from bad French to English or from danse to dance passed for plot in this cabaret act. The scantily clad men in the audience - I attended the June 30th, 2016 performance - lapped it up before they even had a chance to hear the next line. It was all good fun, though if there is an art to telegraphing intention it was not on display here. That was 'I Want You to Want Me': a surrealistic B movie romp ruled by a character with mystical abilities for no other reason than 'just because'. File it under lazy craftsmanship. The world that Mr. Ferver inhabited was self referential, sassy, and imbued with magic, not unlike a gay lounge. (more...)

BWW Review: GLADYS KNIGHT's Rockin' New Year's Eve at WALT DISNEY HALL
by Don Grigware - Jan 4, 2016

What can one say about pop/rock living legend Gladys Knight? A 7-time Grammy winner for gospel as well as R&B/pop hits, this lady at 71 years young, still rocks. She looks and sounds amazing! On New Year's Eve, Knight made an appearance at the Walt Disney Concert Hall for two concerts, one at 7 pm and the second at 10: 30 pm. I attended the 7 pm show, which was a near to full house of genuine fans, those who have followed her career since the 60s when she appeared as Gladys Knight and the Pips. A great five-piece band backed her: musical director Leon Turner; Darryle Woolfork on drums; James Davis on guitar; Joseph Green on bass; and Yuko Tamura on keyboard...and four terrific backup singers: Alexus Hoover, Brandon Smith, Porcha Clay, and JaVonte Pollard, all of whom got into the act a little bit later in the 90-minute set.

BWW Review: Entertaining SISSYBOY at NoHo Arts Center
by Don Grigware - Feb 15, 2016

Autobiographical one-man shows are out there in abundance; audience interest and overall success of each depends totally on the appeal of the individual performer. When you have a super talented man like James Mellon, who with his partner of 25 years Kevin Bailey has brilliantly run the NoHo Arts Center since 2004 and has also been a successful minister with the Global Truth Center, how can you come up any less than a winner? SissyBoy now playing at the NoHo Arts Center starts with Jim at age 7 and takes him all the way through his life to his current age, a youthful 61. It is simultaneously a coming.of.age story and at the end a celebration of surviving incredible odds and...embracing one' true identity. (more...)

BWW Column: Three Simple Ways to Improve Upon Success of THE WIZ LIVE!
by Matt Tamanini - Dec 10, 2015

Now that we are a week removed from last Thursday's THE WIZ LIVE!, NBC's third live musical in as many years, we know that the production has predominantly been hailed as a critical and ratings success, vindicating the audacious experiment after two, less than artistically satisfying, outings. Led by a newcomer plucked from an open call, director Kenny Leon and executive producers Neil Meron and Craig Zadan found a star in Shanice Williams and surrounded her with an all-star cast that ranged from serviceable to revelatory. However, as enjoyable as the event was, especially in relationship to past efforts, THE WIZ LIVE! was not a perfect production. There is, after all, a reason why no one did live TV musicals for nearly half a century; they are hard. (more...)

Class Act Books Released Third Entry in New Family Saga
by BWW News Desk - Apr 18, 2016

'You're a menace, Padraig, an' I see no hope o' you changin'. Is there?' Quinton McCoy paused, giving his son a gimlet stare out of eyes as green as the serpentine in Connemara marble. 'Is there?' Padraig pretended to think, then shook his head. 'No, Da, I don't believe there is. I'm enjoyin' it too much.' 'Ah!' Quinton threw up his hands, then recovered. He stalked back around his desk but didn't sit. 'I'm afraid you leave me no choice.' Briefly his anger fell away. His gaze wavered, then he appeared to force himself to speak. 'Padraig, lad...I'm turnin' you out.' ''re disownin' me?' Padraig's voice trembled. 'Ah, I'd ne'er do that.' Quinton said. 'What I'm sayin' is...I Want You t' leave this house, indeed this country, an' ne'er come back.' Thus begins the story of Padraig Aloysius McCoy, third son and bad seed of Tipperary's branch of the McCoy clan. Unlike Books 1 and 2, set in Regency England and Ireland, The Man from Tipperary ranges from the gracious homes of landed gentry in Tipperary to an isolated cattle ranch in the American West in the years prior to and including the War Between the States. Settling in Nebraska, the misplaced young Irishman learns the hardship and heartache of being a cowboy in the mid-19th century, as well as the adventure of living in a time of social transition. He sees the Nebraska Territory gain statehood and discovers Love when it steps off a Wells Fargo stage. Full of history, humor, and romance, Padraig's story embodies the traits of many who went West and fought for their destinies instead of waiting for Life to hand it to them. The Man from Tipperary is author Toni V. Sweeney's fifty-third novel published by Class Act Books. Since the publication of her first novel in 1989, Ms. Sweeney divides her time between writing SF/Fantasy under her own name and romances under her pseudonym Icy Snow Blackstone. She has reviewed books for Two Lips Reviews and recently join the review staff of the New York Journal of Books and also the Paranormal Romance Guild. She is an amazon reviewer with over 570 reviews listed on the American amazon website, a professional reader for Netgalley, and is in the 1% of reviewers for Goodreads. Her Western novel NEBRASKA: Walk the Shadow Trail was award 1st Place in Historical Romance for 2015 by the Paranormal Romance Guild's Reviewers Choice, and also was voted #2 in General Genre by the Preditors & Editors Readers Poll for 2015. She has two new scifi/space opera series upcoming for 2016-2017. In 2013, Class Act Books came under new ownership. Based in Port Townsend, Washing, their goal is to supply quality fiction in all genres for the discerning reader.
