Based on the stories of Rudyard Kipling

How did the Elephant get his trunk?br

How did the Leopard get his spots?br

How did the Rhinoceros get his skin?brbr

In the "Just So Stories," Rudyard Kipling created a magical world as he told his daughter fables of the animal kingdom. In "Just So," George Stiles and Anthony Drewe ("Honk!") have created a new musical that weaves five of Mr. Kipling's most famous tales together into a fanciful lesson about personal courage, individuality and friendship.

BWW Review: Life and WHAT WE WANTED at the Clurman Theatre
by Kristen Morale - Jan 7, 2017

Written by David Harms and directed by Drew Foster (in association with Skyhook Productions LLC) for its current run at the Clurman Theatre (NY's Theatre Row), What We Wanted is truly one of the most intriguing plays I have ever seen performed. After a few moments' adjustment in understanding exactly what is happening, followed by a brief evaluation of whether the family scene before us is acceptable or slightly unsettling, the characters simply become people whose lives are unraveled before the audience to reveal bare, confused human beings affected by the absurdity of life, just as everyone is.

It's So Chewish! Jewish Women's Theatre Explores Special Connection Between Food and Jewish Life
by BWW News Desk - Jan 5, 2017

Ask any Jewish man, woman or child to describe a favorite memory and the response will likely to be a story about family, friends and food.  The sights, sounds, and smells all have special meaning, but it is memories of the tastes that bring the most smiles.  Food and Jewish life have been inseparable throughout history. The Old Testament says the Israelites celebrated their newfound freedom from the Pharaoh with a communal meal of roast lamb and herbs. Even since then, Jewish people and food have been linked symbolically and socially. "Ess my kind" is a universal anthem.   (more...)

BWW Interview: Maury Yeston Talks DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY Ahead of London Opening
by Liz Cearns - Jan 23, 2017

Maury Yeston, the composer and lyricist best-known for Nine and Titanic, visited the West End a few months before the West End opening of his new musical, Death Takes a Holiday. Based on a film (which was based on a play) this story tells of how Death changed his perspective. He used to not quite understand why everyone he came to collect was quite so aggrieved to die, until he met a particular woman who allowed him to realise quite what makes life worth clinging to. The side effect of Death's occupation being, though, that he can't collect anyone else while he's so distracted - Death the person and death the concept take a break!  Maury was kind enough to discuss his musical background, some of his better-known works and his latest venture for the stage.

BWW Review: Surprisingly Affected by Resonant WOODY SEZ at Seattle Rep
by Jay Irwin - Jan 13, 2017

I'll admit to a large dose of skepticism when heading in to see "Woody Sez: The Life and Music of Woody Guthrie" currently playing at the Seattle Rep. Not because I thought it would be bad, just not really anything I was all that interested in watching for two hours. I knew who he was the way many do. I knew he was a folk singer and I remember singing his most notable song, "This Land is Your Land" in grade school. But what I didn't know is what a fascinating life he had and how resonant his works would still be today. And I especially didn't expect to be emotionally affected as I was. But we'll come to that.

'Girls, be Good' to be First Serbian Book to Translate to English
by BWW News Desk - Dec 9, 2016

Summary: 'Girls, be good' is an omnibus novel that consists of twenty short stories connected by a single framing narrative: just after the fall of the Berlin wall, foreign investors feel good about the investment climate in Eastern Europe and decide to open a huge toy factory in ex-Yugoslavia, where they are going to produce a hit range of toys designed for girls: small, plush lemurs called Aya, that will be sold all over the world. We then follow the little lemurs as they bear witness to physical and mental abuse, inhumane treatment and molestation of young girls around the world. The main character, the young woman who writes these stories, has a father who has sold her soul to the devil, Just So that he could obtain two decades of life outside the law and without fear of punishment. The young woman herself, meanwhile, has a pact with the devil of her own. About the Author: Bojan Babi? was born in Belgrade in 1977. He studied at the Department of Serbian and World Literature at the Faculty of Philology, in Belgrade, and later gained a Master's degree from the same department. Before commencing his studies in Serbian and World Literature, he was a singer in a little-known heavy metal/grunge band. Over the last ten years, he has worked as a prolific and acclaimed copywriter and associate creative director at a big advertising agency, winning numerous awards. As one critic wrote of Babic's novel Inhuman comedy, realistic prose seems too feeble and naïve to describe the unbelievable reality that is happening to us, hence Babic uses surreal tactics to talk about it. If one had to come up with a name for it, it would be called dystopic surreal realism, in which he always adds a pinch of dark humor, irony and an oneiric atmosphere. Critics have compared his prose to that of Don DeLillo, Boris Vian and Roberto Bolanjo. Babic won an award from the Borislav Peki? Foundation in 2011. His novel Illegal Parnassus, published in 2013, was shortlisted for the biggest national literary award, the NIN prize; it was also shortlisted for the biggest regional award (for Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia and Serbia) - the Meša Selimovi? prize. He has had prose, poetry and essays published in a large number of magazines and anthologies in Serbia and abroad. Reviews: '[T]he author Bojan Babic, although this may sound biased and exaggerated, is one of the most refreshing voices in our [Serbian] literature (the literature of the four-name language we all understand), at least in the past ten years. What Babic has accomplished with his novels 'IlegalniParnas' [Illegal Parnassus] and 'Devojcice, budite dobre' [Girls, be Good] <...> is most certainly the kind of step forward that we have not seen in a while.' Djordje Krajišnik, Oslobodjenje Review copies are available upon request. Title: Girls, be Good Author: Bojan Babi? Translator: Nataša Miljkovi? Publisher: Glagoslav Publications Language: English ISBN: 9781911414261 Extent: 156 pages Format: paperback, hardback, e-book (more...)

BWW Interview: Adam Langdon of THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME at The Bushnell
by Joseph Harrison - Dec 27, 2016
