BWW Reviews: DEATH TAX at Lookingglass TheaterBWW Reviews: DEATH TAX at Lookingglass Theater
by Cara Winter - Sep 22, 2014

The early Greek theaters were temples. The purpose of theater was to give people a place in which to worship their gods. It was believed that by going to the theater, one could have direct communication with the gods. Well, almost; it was believed that spiritual information came down from the gods through the actors, who then gave this information to the audience. The audience then gave their collective response, which then was sent back, again through the actors, up to the gods. It was this back-and-forth communication of ideas, feelings, and energy between us and the Great Beyond that gave birth to what we now refer to as 'theater'. (more...)

BWW Review: For TheatreWorks Florida's Glorious SWEENEY TODD the Devil is in the Overlooked DetailsBWW Review: For TheatreWorks Florida's Glorious SWEENEY TODD the Devil is in the Overlooked Details
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 18, 2014

Amongst the vast majority of musical theatre devotees, there is little debate that Stephen Sondheim is the greatest writer that the artform has ever known. So, as I sat watching TheatreWorks Florida's soaring Opening Night performance of his darkest masterpiece, SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET, I found my mind consistently going over his three principles of lyric writing: 1) 'Content dictates form.' 2) 'Less is more.' 3) 'God is in the details.' Now, before I go much further, I want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this production, especially the phenomenal voices and inventive staging, and this show is a must see for any local lover of Sondheim's work. I doubt that you will find a better sounding group of actors on an Orlando stage any time soon. Music Director David Foust clearly did incredible work on this production. (more...)

InDepth InterView: Stephen Trask Talks HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH, Neil Patrick Harris, Sequel Details, New Musicals & MoreInDepth InterView: Stephen Trask Talks HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH, Neil Patrick Harris, Sequel Details, New Musicals & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 20, 2014

Today we are talking to the gifted composer and lyricist behind the earth-shattering score for Broadway's biggest recent hit, HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH, the versatile and passionate Stephen Trask. Shedding considerable light on the development of the idiosyncratic rock musical, Trask discusses his influences and the organic way in which the outre show developed from humble beginnings at downtown bar Squeezebox in the mid-1990s, to Off-Broadway hit at the turn of the new century all the way to the rapturously received feature film adaptation, and, now, the 2014 Broadway production. Trask also details his affection for Tony Award-winning lead actor Neil Patrick Harris and looks ahead to the new leading man donning the titular wig, Andrew Rannells. Additionally, Trask also shares news on the forthcoming sequel to HEDWIG currently being developed with John Cameron Mitchell and teases some of what we can expect from the hotly anticipated theatrical experience. Furthermore, Trask reflects on his own upbringing and musical influences and how that informed the composition of the score for HEDWIG, as well as his own favorite performers. Plus, Trask reflects on his fruitful career as a movie scorer in Hollywood and comments on his upcoming musical endeavors, including two original stage musicals - JUST THE BLACK KEYS, a real-life inspired original musical potentially involving Peter Askin and Michael Mayer, as well 15 MINUTES, a Studio 54-centric period piece written with Rick Elice - as well as much, much more.

by Tim Carney - Nov 24, 2014

The Production Company's final installment for 2014 La Cage Au Folles opened last night at the Arts Centre. Based on the play by Jean Poiret, opening in 1983 and winning 6 Tony Awards on Broadway, La Cage tells the story of Georges (Simon Burke), owner of the famous La Cage Au Folles club in St.Tropez where his partner Albin (Todd Mckenney) is the star drag act. Georges son Jean-Michel (Robert Tripolino) returns to the club to announce that he is engaged to Anne (Emily Milledge), daughter of the Edouard Dindon (Gary Sweet) leader of the Tradition Family and Morality Party. What ensues is a riotous fusion of two different worlds coupled with a touching story of love and the bond of family set against Jerry Herman's fun, poignant score. (more...)

Pure Storage Takes Aim at Big Storage Business Practices, Unleashes Reimagined Forever Flash ProgramPure Storage Takes Aim at Big Storage Business Practices, Unleashes Reimagined Forever Flash Program
by BWW News Desk - Nov 20, 2014

"Building a fundamentally better storage company means we must continually strive to improve upon our own innovative business best practices," said Scott Dietzen, CEO at Pure Storage. "Customers are getting a raw deal today from Big Storage. Dramatic escalation in out-year maintenance fees are used to force them into purchasing replacement storage arrays that require moving a half-ton of equipment in and out of their data center every few years, and necessitate complex data migrations and costly downtime. Adding Insult to injury, in many cases customers then have to repurchase the same array software they just wrote off. Pure Storage is committed to better serving its customers by offering storage that lives productively forever-without compromises, forced migrations or price hikes. Today, we are liberating them from legacy disk-era business practices with the introduction of 'perpetual storage.' Any storage vendor that professes to care about its customers should do the same and we challenge our competitors to follow suit." (more...)

The 18th Long Island Al Jolson Festival coming up on August 16 is a whole-day affair featuring film presentations, lectures, memorabilia displays and sales, and a performance--'The Heart of Al Jolson'--by singer and Staten Island native Tony Babino (photo below), who can sing Jolson songs like, well, you ain't heard nothin' yet. The other day, like clockwork, I received my yearly invitation to attend from Oceanside, LI resident Jan Hernstat, who for the past 10 years has been the President of the 62-year-old International Al Jolson Society (which was formed in early 1950, a few months before Jolson died), an organization with a worldwide membership hovering around 1,000. I am proud to say that for 30 years, I've been one of them. I'm even prouder to say that I've been an Al Jolson fanatic for much longer. Here's my story about how it happened. (more...)

If I wanted to watch people sniping at each other with no discernible plot or story then I'll watch reality TV. Unfortunately that's what the latest outing from Sound Theatre Company, 'School For Lies', felt like. David Ives' adaptation of Moliere's 'The Misanthrope' felt like such a contrived and one-note exercise in Insults that I may have well have been watching the Real Housewives in verse. True the cast commits to the style but the style they've adopted is so forced and flat that I felt beaten over the head with the humor to the point that I didn't care about any of the characters.

BWW Recap: OUTLANDER Delivers Witches and Redcoats and Kilts, Oh My!BWW Recap: OUTLANDER Delivers Witches and Redcoats and Kilts, Oh My!
by Kara McCoy - Aug 12, 2014

Something very exciting is happening on today's small screens. The adult fantasy is becoming an actual thing-and a popular one at that. In a world where 'Game of Thrones' not only exists, but actually thrives on cable TV, Ronald D. Moore's 'Outlander' has all the potential to become another hit, and after the series premiere, I predict it probably will. Which isn't to say that that the new Starz series should be compared with the HBO smash. Both may have originally begun as sweeping epics stretching across thousands of pages of thick-spined behemoths before making it to the screen (the novel Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon, is the first of currently eight books upon which the new series is based), but the similarities end there. 'Game of Thrones' has the vast imaginary land of Westeros. Knights in shining armor. Oh yeah, and dragons. 'Outlander' has Inverness. Burly Scotsmen in tartan kilts. And no dragons. So I repeat, this is not 'Game of Thrones,' but, as it turns out, that's just fine. If the series premiere proved anything, it's that 'Outlander' doesn't need to compete with 'Game of Thrones.' It's more than capable of standing on its own two feet. Plus it has time travel. And time travel is pretty cool. (more...)
