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

BWW Review: Ocean State Ends Season with Effervescent ANYTHING GOES
by Robert Barossi - May 2, 2016

Like any art form, theatrical musicals can run the gamut in tone, style, tenor and execution. You can find everything from dark, serious brooding drama to light-as-a-feather, fluff-filled entertainments. Which is not to say that either side of the spectrum is better or worse than the other, there are highs and lows at both ends of the spectrum. When it comes to the lighter, fluffier fare, there are few as effervescent and entertaining as Cole Porter's Anything Goes, now receiving a top-notch production at Ocean State Theatre Company.

Harvard Men's Health Watch Shares Information on Declining Muscle Mass
by BWW News Desk - Mar 9, 2016

Age-related muscle loss, called sarcopenia, is a natural part of getting older. After age 30, men begin to lose as much as 3% to 5% of their muscle mass per decade. In fact, most men will lose about 30% of their muscle mass during their lifetime. Less muscle means greater weakness and less mobility, both of which may increase a person's risk of falls and fractures. (more...)

BWW Interview: Jenny Winton on Transition from Ballet Dancing to DIRTY DANCING
by Matt Tamanini - Mar 29, 2016

Though there are obvious similarities, the life of a professional ballet dancer and the life of a musical theatre actor are quite different. From the physical demands to the number of performances, transitioning from one to the other is no small feat.  Just ask Jennifer Winton, who plays Johnny Castle's original dance partner, Penny Johnson, in the DIRTY DANCING musical that opens its week-long run at Orlando's Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts tonight.  (more...)

BWW Review: BUS STOP an American Classic Done Right
by Frank Benge - Mar 28, 2016

Coming from Kansas and receiving my education there, I have more than a passing familiarity with playwright William Inge. Being born in the small town of Independence, Inge attributed his understanding of human behavior to growing up in a small town environment. The influence of that Kansas childhood is evident in many of his works, which tend to revolve around characters that are clearly the products of places like Independence. I remember the head of my college theatre department dismissing Inge's plays as "domestic dramas", which I thought was an unfair assessment both then and now. While Inge may not have the poetic lyricism of a Tennessee Williams or the overarching high moral message of an Arthur Miller; he did have an understanding of the concerns of average Middle Americans. It was because of this understanding that Inge became labeled the 'Playwright of the Midwest'. (more...)

BWW Column: How I Feel About LOVE, the Netflix Series, Not the Emotion
by Kaitlin Milligan - Mar 17, 2016

Netflix has begun releasing original comedies that have had a more realistic and dramatic tone. MODERN ROMANCE, LOVE, and the just-released FLAKED, follow a younger male protagonist as he navigates life and all that that entails: from heartbreak to self-questioning. These comedies are far different from shows like PARKS AND RECREATION or MODERN FAMILY that have outlandish and borderline unrealistic storylines. There are many positives about this new type of comedy television show, but they can also present a very singular view on life and love. (more...)
