BWW Interview: Marc Ciemiewicz, JOSEPH's Potiphar and Jacob
by Harmony Wheeler - May 4, 2016

BroadwayWorld spoke with Marc Ciemiewicz about color, character and special effects in the national tour of 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.' Marc plays both Jacob and Potiphar in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, which uses everything from Elvis-style to calypso and western in its telling of Joseph's rise to power in Bible-times Egypt.

BWW Interview: Wendy Worthington is Madame Morrible in WICKED
by Heidi Scheuermann - May 26, 2016

The wildly popular show about the witches from Oz is returning to New Orleans for the third time in recent years to share the magic!  WICKED, a musical adaptation of the book by Gregory Maguire, tells the story of two young girls who meet at Shiz University, and go on an adventure that will lead them to become Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.  If you grew up with THE WIZARD OF OZ, you're going to love WICKED.  Think of it as a behind the scenes look at everything that took place before Dorothy and her little dog too were dropped into the Emerald City.

BWW Recap: GAME OF THRONES Reveals Shocking Truths in 'The Door'
by Jessica Naftaly - May 23, 2016

This weeks episode of GAME OF THRONES entitled 'The Door,' revealed a lot of information and answers to some of the biggest questions of the series, as well answered some questions that don't necessarily need answering. In a show riddled with plot holes, some of which were highlighted this episode, their ability to carry out reveals and give us answers isn't always up to task. If your biggest concern watching GAME OF THRONES was finding out the origin of Hodor's name, then this was the episode for you! If the importance of finding out the origin of the White Walkers, the biggest threat that endangers the lives of all of our characters, is highest on the scale for you, you'll get answer, but the attention and care given to revealing said answer may disappoint you. It's all apparent just looking at the recaps and reactions. The most used phrase from an episode in which we learn where the White Walkers came from, another direwolf dies, a mythic race goes extinct, and the Starks make a battle plan, is 'Hold the door!' That says quite a lot. (more...)

BWW Review: Winifred Is a Misstep for Theater LaB Houston and UnCommonWill Collective
by Katricia Lang - May 20, 2016

I get the idea behind WINIFRED. I really do. Winifred 'Winnie' Wagner is punished by history for being a woman with a (rumored) sexual history. I understand it, and I still didn't enjoy it or agree with its driving point. (more...)

BWW Weighs In: From Showgirl to Shivasana - By Emily Fletcher of Ziva Meditation
by Mark Fisher Fitness - Jun 6, 2016

If you knew me 10 years ago, you would never guess that I would end up traveling the world speaking about meditation. I wouldn't have guessed it either. I was on Broadway at the time, understudying three of the leads in A Chorus Line. I was also suffering from anxiety, had been struggling with insomnia for eighteen months, and was going grey at the tender age of 26. So here I was living my dream on stage, but backstage I was rocking myself in the fetal position listening to Eckhart Tolle praying I wouldn't be thrown on with a moment's notice. I was desperate for a solution, so when a fellow castmember told me she swore by meditation I thought, what do I have to lose? (more...)

BWW Review Part 1: THE LITERATI at SBW Stables Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Jun 6, 2016

The pursuit of an original idea is the most fruitless of our generation, it might perhaps be pertinent to say, as it is inferred in Justin Fleming's The Literati which itself is modernised after Moliere's 17th century comedy 'Le Femmes Savantes'. Premiered to the world at The Stables by a partnership of Griffin Theatre Company and Bell Shakespeare, what we have here is riotous, irreverent and cheesy good fun. We enter into the salon, exquisitely designed by Sophie Fletcher to dynamic effects, and are introduced to two polarised sisters. The younger, Juliet, seems set to marry Clint, the former lover of the elder Amanda, who spurned him in favour of intellectual pursuits in the image of their mother. Amanda and her mother oppose the coupling, due to their investment in the odious poet Tristan as suitor for Juliet, utterly manipulated by his pretentious prose. A domestic war is waged between sincerity and scholastics, and all done in Fleming's verse to seemingly effortless comedic effect. (more...)

by BWW Special Coverage - Jun 30, 2016

Happy almost-Fourth of July! Just Because the rest of the country will be spending Independence Day sipping drinks at the pool, pigging out at family barbeques, and enjoying the day off at home, doesn't mean Broadway will shut down for the holiday - the shows must go on! (more...)

BWW Blog: Micah Young - Defying Longevity
by Guest Blogger: Micah Young - Jun 28, 2016

Somehow we equate the amount of time we've been doing something to the quality with which we do it.  Longevity does not equal competence.  I am confident we could all think of someone who has been doing their job for a very long time, and might not be the best at it. (more...)

In July 2012, HIMSELF AND NORA premiered at the New York Musical Theater Festival. In 2014, Jay Records released HIMSELF AND NORA (Original Off-Broadway Cast Recording).

Recently, I sat down with Michael McCormick, who plays John Joyce, Ezra Pound, and others, to chat about the show. (more...)

BWW Review: The Bible Preaches, But GODSPELL Asks
by BWW Staff - Jun 22, 2016

If you're expecting to find your corner of the sky, you will not. Just Because this is a Stephen Schwartz musical does not mean there will be someone painting with all the colors of the wind, nor will there be any gravity-defying witches, nor a hunchback. Yes, this is a Bible story, but do not expect Moses to be there even if you believe. And yes, there could be ever, ever after but there are no singing animals present. This is simply MusicArtes Inc.'s production of GODSPELL. (more...)

Just Because he's the walking dead doesn't mean there are no skeletons in Mullet's closet. Everyone's scared of something. (more...)

BWW Preview: RIOULT DANCE NY Astounds in the Open Rehearsal of 'Cassandra's Curse'
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jun 18, 2016

In preparation for its upcoming Joyce season, RIOULT Dance NY held an open rehearsal at the Gibney Dance Center at 890 Broadway featuring a run through of the company's upcoming world premiere, 'Cassandra's Curse'. Of course this refers to that doomed prophetess from the Trojan War who - though blessed with foresight - was cursed to never have her predictions believed. In an expansive opening, Artistic Director Pascal Rioult revealed that the piece was inspired by his passion for Euripides' 'The Trojan Women', a play that serves as a wellspring of material for his current artistic period.

BWW Review: Pearls of Talent Abound In THE LITTLE MERMAID
by Herbert Paine - Jun 13, 2016

SPECTACULAR is the key word for Valley Youth Theatre's current production of DISNEY'S THE LITTLE MERMAID, directed by Bobb Cooper and featuring enough pearls of talent to fill an oyster bed or two. Karol Cooper's lavish costumes, Dori Brown's sets, Mike Eddy's lighting, Mark Fearey's orchestra all add up to an exhilarating hit for the family. (more...)

BWW Recap: Arya Stark Becomes 'No One' on GAME OF THRONES
by Jessica Naftaly - Jun 13, 2016

As this season of Game of Thrones draws to a close, Episode 8 gave us the required death count, male nudity (was that far away shot of Sandor pissing what you wanted when you called for equal nudity Emilia Clarke?) and debunked a lot of fan theories and book plot lines that have been building up since the first installment, further confirming the show's insistence that it's truly straying away from it's source material.

BWW Interview: My Dance Selfie with Josh Walden of Off-Broadway's CAGNEY
by Bob Rizzo - Jun 1, 2016

Josh Walden is a seasoned Broadway hoofer. He's sung and danced in the revivals of 42nd Street, A Chorus Line, La Cage aux Folles and Ragtime. But it's in the new Off-Broadway musical Cagney where Walden gets to really show off his versatility and range. He changes characters and costumes faster than he taps out a syncopated rhythm-and he even executes that flawlessly. He's part of Cagney's expert six-member cast in this musical biography of Hollywood tough guy and dance man James Cagney. (more...)

BWW Interview: Larry Raben of THE LITTLE MERMAID at Cabrillo Music Theatre
by Cary Ginell - Jul 5, 2016

Larry Raben is an accomplished actor and director who has added his prodigious abilities to a multitude of productions around the world. In addition to acting in a command performance before Queen Elizabeth II in London and producing Sweet Charity in Argentina, Raben has also graced Cabrillo Music Theatre's stages in productions of Singin' in the Rain, The Producers, and, most recently, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Raben is directing Cabrillo's summer offering this year, Disney's The Little Mermaid, which will prove to be the final production overseen by Cabrillo's longtime artistic director, Lewis Wilkenfeld. We talked with Larry not only about his plans for the show, one of Cabrillo's most challenging and ambitious productions, but also about working with the indefatigable Wilkenfeld. (more...)

BWW Review: Feet Planted Firmly In The Air: HAIRSPRAY at Toby's

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...)

by Guest Blogger: Paisley Haddad - Jul 27, 2016

Directing Kids and Teens sounds like a very difficult job, but for these 4 directors, the task is very easy. Cheryl Baxter-Ratliff  (Los Angeles), Joel & Christine Seger (Massachusetts), and Kelley Manson (Massachusetts) have had their fair share of young adult productions to be proud of.  No matter what coast they are from, they all can agree that kids and teens are "sponges" that can soak up information and that they do not have any bad habits they need to break on stage. They also talk about their beginnings in directing kids and teens, memorable moments thus far in their directing, and more. Read my Q&A below to see what they said.  (more...)

BWW Review: OF MICE AND MEN Amazes at Monomoy
by Kristen Morale - Jul 21, 2016

Never having seen this on stage but having read the novella some time ago, at the time acknowledging it as one of the most memorable stories I have ever read, seeing Steinbeck's words and emotions transposed on stage by the Monomoy Theatre, bringing to the life this simultaneously sad and touchingly hopeful plot by such talented individuals, really made the impact of Of Mice and Men that much stronger. In my opinion, it enhances this plot to the extent of it being particularly memorable for some time to come for all who are fortunate enough to see this production. (more...)
