Celebrate the Fourth of July on Broadway- The Full Holiday Weekend Performance Schedule!
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...)

BWW Interview: Michael McCormick Talks HIMSELF AND NORA
by David Clarke - Jun 22, 2016

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). Following the steamy romance between James Joyce and his muse, Nora, the musical has returned to New York in a lush Off-Broadway production at the Minetta Lane Theatre. 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...)

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 Blog: Tara Folio - Working 9 to 5 (Actually 10 to 6)
by Guest Blogger: Tara Folio - Jun 17, 2016

As I begin this new job, I find myself stuck in this odd adult-but-not-quite limbo. For those readers who aren't familiar with the term "summer stock", it is a period of about two or three months during which a group of young emerging artists are sent to a remote, usually rustic, location to perform a handful of shows in rapid-fire succession.

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: 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
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Jul 5, 2016

Hairspray is, in fact, a great raspberry blown in the face of realistic expectations, a visit to a fantasyland where cruelty and meanness and class pretensions stand no chance. And we never get tired of watching that raspberry get blown. (more...)

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: The Phenomenal Force of THE FANTASTICKS at Monomoy Theatre
by Kristen Morale - Jul 31, 2016

Arriving on the Monomoy stage under the direction of Alan Rust, The Fantasticks is the first production of this show I have seen, and I believe it to be the most utterly captivating production that has been on this theater's - rather any I have seen this summer - stage in quite some time. This is not only because of the rather basic but wonderful plot of a boy falling in love with a girl, being torn apart by no obstacles but themselves and then brought back together through what seems like an almost realized fate. It is not Just Because of the beautiful music provided by a very talented pianist and harpist - music which accompanies this story that teeters between our reality and fiction. (more...)

BWW Review: SHREK Brings Laughs Both Big and Small
by Alexander Garza - Jul 29, 2016

The show is genuinely moving, entertaining, and a fast-paced, all around fun time for the entire family. Don't be quick to assume you can't take your date to see SHREK Just Because the production is part of Main Street Theater's Theatre for Youth program. The performance is open to the public, and the narrative and jokes will have both children and adults raving. (more...)

BWW Blog: Christopher Panella - Summer Reflection: Why Tech Deserves the Spotlight
by Guest Blogger: Christopher Panella - Jul 29, 2016

Summer: a time for reflection, relaxation, and work. As I have been reading, writing, and working on my craft, I reflected constantly back to a few months ago, during Seussical the Musical, when I saw firsthand the stress crew undergoes to provide the best environment for cast members. I have said it before and I will say it every day until I die: without the thankless work of crew and tech, the cast wouldn't even exist. Thanks to these reflections, I have decided the best blog as the summer begins to come to an end is a blog with a theme that I hope carries into the next school year and theatre season: tech deserves the spotlight.  (more...)

BWW Review: Be Mystified by HOAX at MAP
by Cybele Pomeroy - Jul 28, 2016

If you've an interest in the unusual, if you have sampled traditional theatre and avant garde theatre and found them both not quite what you wanted, if you'd like to gather a few of your friends and your favorite '50s fancy duds, if you'd like an evening out that isn't clubbing and isn't pizza, do consider HOAX.

BWW: Enrique Cruz DeJesus Paints The Future and Honors The Past
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 28, 2016

There may be 'no second acts in American lives' - thank you, Fitzgerald - and yet Enrique Cruz DeJesus has lived so many exciting chapters that seven or eight books could be devoted to his journey. Mr. DeJesus has been the Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer of Alpha Omega Theatrical Dance Company since 1998, inheriting directorship of this nearly 45 years old company from Andy Torres during a time when the future was anything but certain. Having led a successful concert dance career - that saw him working with Eleo Pomare, Talley Beatty, Gary Deloatch, Martial Roumain and George Faison - Mr. DeJesus transitioned in to a highly successful theatre career with his stage debut at Shakespeare in the Park's production of 'Measure for Measure' under the direction of George C. Wolfe. (more...)

BWW Blog: Paisley Haddad - East Meets West-4 Directors Talk About Directing Kids and Teens
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 Interview: Director Thom Southerland On Reviving Rodgers and Hammerstein's ALLEGRO
by Marianka Swain - Jul 25, 2016

Director Thom Southerland has built a career on revelatory musical revivals in smaller fringe venues, from Me and Juliet and The Grand Tour at Finborough Theatre to Titanic, Grand Hotel and Grey Gardens at Southwark Playhouse. He's programmed an enticing range of musicals for his first season as artistic director of Charing Cross Theatre, but first up is the European premiere of Rodgers and Hammerstein's little-seen Allegro, playing at Southwark from August 5.

by Guest Blogger: Taylor Kyes - Jul 22, 2016

I interned at Sportody.com this summer, I have to write an Extended Essay for the IB program, I have to get Inbound Certified for my fall internship, I just started my own blog, koffeekisses.com. I have schoolwork. And I haven't even thought about preparing for the District Festival for Thespians this fall.  (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...)

BWW Review: Watch It Ensnare Us All with THE MOUSETRAP at Cape Playhouse
by Kristen Morale - Aug 28, 2016

With a small yet stellar cast directed by Pamela Hunt and finishing the Playhouse's 90th season as its final full length production of the summer, there is so much to love about this production of Christie's classic The Mousetrap. Honestly, if you don't enjoy it, you really aren't following the story close enough. From enigmatic characters, all whom are just about self-incriminatingly suspicious from the very start, to a plot that you will try your utmost to decipher while the facts are laid out bare before you, Hunt and her cast have truthfully really created quite the masterpiece with this production (more...)
