BWW Reviews: Not Those Kind of Duets - Casebolt and Smith's O(h)
by Mary Callahan - Mar 4, 2014

Casebolt and Smith is a duet dance theatre company (made up of Liz Casebolt and my former dance professor, Joel Smith) hailing from sunny Los Angeles. They performed O(h) as part of the 92nd Street Y's Harkness Dance Festival, 'Stripped/Dressed,' curated by fellow choreographer, Doug Varone. A single word (or rather, an exclamation) with befuddling parentheses around the 'h,' O(h) is a work that incites audiences to rethink what they already think they know about dance. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Saying Something New About Graham: The Martha Graham Dance Company at New York City Center
by Mary Callahan - Mar 27, 2014

It's probably not possible to say something about Martha Graham's choreography that hasn't already been said. After all, 2014 marks the Martha Graham Dance Company's 88th season. But Just Because these works have been seen by audiences a hundred times before does not make them any less meaningful or relevant. There will always be a few Graham 'virgins' in the house, experiencing the magic and mystery of the technique and canon for the first time. And on the other hand, there will always be Graham connoisseurs in the audience, ones that have seen each of the company's twenty-eight works. Even for them, however, the experience is new thanks to a different cast of dancers and an ever-changing contemporary lens. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Nalaga'at Theater's NOT BY BREAD ALONE Is a Rare Glimpse of a Unique Ensemble
by Andrew White - Mar 26, 2014

The framing device for 'Not by Bread Alone' is the baking of bread, an activity that is labor-intensive at first but which also allows plenty of time for family and friends to hang out and swap stories while the dough rises, with more tales to tell when it goes in to bake. The bulk of 'Not by Bread Alone' consists of the performers introducing themselves, talking about their lives and dreams, and acting out a few of their dream-scenarios along the way. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THE CASUALTIES OF WAR
by Kristen Morale - Mar 24, 2014

It would be wise to call this as a great piece of theater, yet there is so much more to say about Bill Holland's Hounds of War, it would be a shame to simply refer to this wonderful play as just another show to go and see on a Saturday night. Upon seeing a show, being part of an audience that has witnessed a given story from beginning to end, there are certain ones that a person knows are special - ones that, when actor and script meet, you know will be something special. Holland has created something more than a simple plot with a beginning, middle and end, relinquished from the minds of those who saw within a few days of their attendance. His genius in writing this play has created something much more lasting - a theatrical experience, really, that not only captures the attention of the audience, but is also able to delve deep inside the minds of each character and so intricately and carefully dissect each part of his or her mind so that no idea, no feeling or emotion goes unnoticed. The characters seen upon the stage at the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre turn into actual people, and combined with the psychological complexity of the plot, form a production that is incredibly unique and admirable to all playwrights ever hoping to write the next great story.

BWW Reviews: The Wilbury Group Stages a Fearless, Brutally Honest Production of BLASTED
by Robert Barossi - Mar 23, 2014

As an art form, theater is many things. It is entertaining. It is inspiring. It is thought-provoking. It can also be disturbing, challenging, provocative and divisive. Some might argue that this is exactly what theater should be and is meant to be. Something that elicits powerful emotions, both positive and negative, from an audience. Something that causes them to discuss, engage, and even argue with each other over what it all means. Love it or hate it, it's power to grab the audience and make them face a difficult reality cannot and will not be denied. This is exactly the kind of theater The Wilbury Group has created with their production of Sarah Kane's Blasted. (more...)
