by BWW News Desk - Sep 17, 2014

QINGDAO, China, Sept. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ Photos and videos of a 15-year old girl and her 'hip' 65-year-old grandfather that are making the rounds on the internet have triggered heated online debates in China. Social-M&G has issued a special report: the videos are part of a summer life experience montage submitted by the granddaughter. In the videos and photos, the 65-year-old senior looks like British male model Aiden Shaw. He and his 15-year-old granddaughter go paragliding, form a band, perform street dances and cosplaygame TheWorld 3, a game they have been active players of for a long time. The senior's enthusiasm and vigor wows anyone who sees any of the videos: Grandpa, are you sure you live in this era and not another? How can you be more up to date than we are? Online audiences have taken to referring the active senior as 'China's Trendsetting Grandpa.' (more...)

Third Rail Repertory Theatre Presents MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno
by BWW News Desk - Sep 17, 2014

Third Rail opens our season with a play we have been dying to produce since it was the hit of Portland Center Stage's 2009 JAW Festival, MIDDLETOWN by Will Eno. The residents of Middletown lead lives that are probably not too different from ours. They wake up, go to work, say hello to their neighbors, fix the plumbing, seek advice on parenting, and try to live lives that are as rewarding as possible. It's all fairly ordinary. And yet...ordinary doesn't even begin to scratch the surface of this quirky, word-frenzied, refraction of OUR TOWN. MIDDLETOWN is a quizzical fable about life in all its sweetness and pain, Joy and wonder, beginnings and endings. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Paramount's CATS Offers High-Quality Entertainment
by Elee Schrock - Sep 16, 2014

BroadwayWorld reviews Paramount Theatre's 'Cats.' The felines prowling the stage at Aurora's Paramount Theatre have truly been given the five-star treatment. On a perfectly polished (and monstrous) set by Kevin Depinet (along with projections by Michael Stanfill), they are given plenty of room to jump, climb, and play. They are donned in those iconic (expertly designed by Theresa Ham, with wigs and make-up by Katie Cordts and Lauren Cecil) leotards and furry hats. And, most impressive, they have been lit in brilliant colors by lighting extraordinaire, Jesse Klug. The aesthetic appeal on the Paramount stage is top-notch and one of the main reasons this production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's 'Cats' is as fully satisfying as this musical gets. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Moonlight Amphitheatre, Vista Rolls Out Red Carpet for CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
by Don Grigware - Sep 12, 2014

It used to be, in days gone by, that hit Broadway shows would be made into movies; now, it's the reverse. With a dearth of ideas for Broadway musicals, the trend lately has been to turn to the big screen and revamp a popular film for the stage, adding song and dance. Such was the case with 9 to 5 and later Legally Blonde engendering quite a bit of success. Those two had female stars at the core, so it's high time a male got some attention. Voila! Catch Me If You Can has a quirky real-life story about an anti-hero Frank Abagnale Jr. (Jacob Haren) who in the 60s was called the Johnny Appleseed of fraud. The outstanding creative team of book writer Terrence McNally and musical wizards Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman took an old idea and created an entertainingly fresh showcase around it. The resultant Catch Me If You Can which received several Tony Award nominations in 2012 - one win for Norbert Leo Butz as Best Featured Actor playing Agent Carl Hanratty - is now playing in its West Coast regional premiere in Vista at the Moonlight Amphitheatre with Josh Adamson essaying Hanratty.
