Tim Rice & Elaine Page on the Origin of EVITA; From Inception, to the Stage, to MadonnaTim Rice & Elaine Page on the Origin of EVITA; From Inception, to the Stage, to Madonna
by BWW News Desk - Sep 9, 2014

EVITA, Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1978 master class musical, has enjoyed runs internationally, two on Broadway and two in London, with a third on the way at the Dominion Theatre. But the process of bringing it to the stage, which Rice and original West End star Elaine Page detail in a new series of essays with The Guardian, was challenging, invigorating, and began on a 'late night in 1973.'

BWW Blog: Christopher Vo of ON THE TOWN - Live TheatreBWW Blog: Christopher Vo of ON THE TOWN - Live Theatre
by Guest Blogger: Christopher Vo - Sep 22, 2014

One of the wonderful things about live theater is that each audience member's experience is different. For me, a favorite aspect of live theater is its ability to suspend disbelief and to transport the audience to the world being presented onstage. When it's done well, immersion into the story-telling and production can make the audience forget, at least for a moment, that they are watching a bunch of actors in a play. The experience envelopes them, and before long the audience is crying and laughing along with the characters on the stage. (more...)

BWW Reviews: They Do Not Serve Who Only Stand And Wait - THE UNDERSTUDY at EverymanBWW Reviews: They Do Not Serve Who Only Stand And Wait - THE UNDERSTUDY at Everyman
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Sep 2, 2014

We come into life with a desire to do meaningful things, just as an understudy comes into the theater motivated to produce great thespian art. Yet if the understudy is our avatar, how discouraging is his example! For, as in Rebeck's play, the understudy's task is condemned to nearly certain futility. Particularly so on today's Broadway, where plays are too often packaged as vehicles for screen stars whom the audience pays a large premium to see, in productions with limited runs. The setup is almost guaranteed to incentivize producers to demand that the big screen stars appear at every performance, and to incentivize the stars to do so, affording no opportunity to the understudies.

BWW Reviews: They're Playing Our (Grandparents) Song at Winter Park PlayhouseBWW Reviews: They're Playing Our (Grandparents) Song at Winter Park Playhouse
by Justin J Sacramone - Sep 19, 2014

Vernon Gersch, a 70's songwriter, is a punctual and sarcastic stick in the mud and Sonia Walsk practices candor and tardiness. So when he proposes to join forces with Sonia it is clear from the start that these two are going to make a comedically disastrous pairing. A score by Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer Sager and jokes by Neil Simon, THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONG is a passe musical about the real-life relationship of Hamlisch and Sager. It is also The Winter Park Playhouse's third show of the season, conveniently starring the Company's Executive and Artistic Directors. (more...)

The Shakespeare Theatre presents the New Jersey premiere of the award-winning play WITTENBERG by David Davalos, in which he ingeniously manipulates time and space to unite an unusual trio-Doctor Faustus, Martin Luther, and Hamlet-for a witty and provocative debate about faith, fate, existence, and tennis. The 'big questions,' the enigmas that eternally puzzle mankind, are given clever and delightfully quirky forum in this contemporary riff on the age-old and eternal conudrums.

BWW Reviews: NOISES OFF Proves Whatever Can Go Wrong Onstage is Even Funnier Backstage!BWW Reviews: NOISES OFF Proves Whatever Can Go Wrong Onstage is Even Funnier Backstage!
by Shari Barrett - Oct 4, 2014

In 1970, Michael Frayn, the English playwright who would go on to write NOISES OFF, was standing backstage In The Wings watching a performance of another farce he had written, "The Two of Us." Of this performance, he said, 'It was funnier from behind than in front, and I thought that one day I must write a farce from behind.' By the late 70s, Frayn had taken a crack at the concept with a short-lived one-act play called "Exits" before fleshing out and expanding the piece into the hilarious three-act NOISES OFF, now brilliantly staged at the Morgan-Wixson in Santa Monica.

by Paul W. Thompson - Oct 20, 2014

Can a new musical be 'pre-Broadway' without having a New York theater booked, or without even announcing a timetable for said booking? How about a musical largely penned by a previously unknown writer, one who worked as a Pennsylvania policeman, and never formally studied music composition? Well, AMAZING GRACE is that show, and this expensive-looking, high-aiming show that's been in development since 2007, with book, music and lyrics by Christopher Smith (the book is co-written with the veteran playwright Arthur Giron) opened on Sunday night. So far, so good! (more...)

by Sondra Forsyth - Oct 13, 2014

Far and away the highlight on opening night of the Pacific Northwest Ballet's five-day return engagement at NYC's Joyce on October 8th 2014 was the soul-stirring and remarkably supple performance by Carla Korbes. The ballerina, who will retire at the end of the 2014-2015 season, is a mere 33 years old. Watching her dance with Jerome Tisserand in a preview of Justin Peck's "Debonair" to an alternately playful and poignant score by George Anthell was pure delight. The ballet is slated to premiere next month in Seattle and served as the closer for the NYC triple bill. (more...)
