BWW's Report from Austin's Sneak Peek of Broadway-Bound ALLEGIANCE
by Jeff Davis - Sep 10, 2013

On Tuesday, September 3rd, a very selected audience of lucky Austinites were invited to a special invitation-only screening of a developmental production of the Broadway-bound musical, Allegiance, hoping to raise funds and support to further bring the show to the Broadway stage. I was lucky enough to attend, and while it may be unconventional for a theater critic to review or even comment on a piece they technically did not see live (what was shown in Austin was a professionally filmed version of the world premiere production of Allegiance at the Old Globe in San Diego, CA) the show is too good to ignore.

Mobile Labs Announces Comprehensive Support for Apple's iOS 7
by BWW News Desk - Sep 10, 2013

Among other changes, the new iOS provides a dramatically different user interface (UI) than previous versions of the operating system. For test automation engineers, this equates to a nearly-new platform and means that automated, platform-independent regression tests are more important than ever. Trust, a certified add-in to the market-leading test automation tool for Web and desktop apps, helps engineers to rapidly test apps on multiple platforms in the most device-independent and OS-independent manner possible - with a single script capable of testing multiple platforms. Trust's object-based scripting makes this possible by isolating the app from differences across operating systems and device types, giving testers powerful methods for handing UI objects as well as device-independent methods for identifying objects. Simply stated, this means scripts written to test iOS 6 can test apps on iOS 7 Just as Well - and will extend to apps that will need testing on future iOS releases as well. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Love! Sex! Torture! The Met's TOSCA Has Everything (Great Music, Too)
by Richard Sasanow - Nov 4, 2013

Maybe next time around, the Metropolitan Opera's General Manager Peter Gelb will hire film director Quentin Tarantino to do a production of Puccini's TOSCA. With its sordid story, self-involved diva and torture-happy, sex-crazed police chief--based on a Sarah Bernhardt vehicle by Victorien Sardou--this is a story that the director of “Pulp Fiction” and “Kill Bill” could sink his teeth into.

by Andrew White - Nov 22, 2013

We are now well into the second wave of Vaclav Havel productions, where his work is being re-examined from a variety of perspectives-experiments which, in and of themselves, are a testament to his staying power.

BWW Review: One-Actor Show NOCTURNE Keeps Momentum with Mortall Coile and Burning Coal
by Larisa Mount - Mar 17, 2013

How does one actor memorize over an hour and a half of text? I certainly don't know the answers to any of those questions, but luckily actor Jesse R.

BWW Reviews: Broadway Tour of ROCK OF AGES Brings Epic Rock Musical to PPAC
by Robert Barossi - Jan 30, 2014

It seems that since the dawn of the new millennium, there has been an incredible surge in the appearance of new 'jukebox musicals.' This genre is comprised of shows made up of previously recorded and released songs, usually by a single band or artist, or connected to a specific theme. While there were a few of these in the late 1900's, the genre took off once the clock turned to 2000. Now, theaters are filled with them, showcasing the music of anyone from Billy Joel to Queen to Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan. After seeing the touring production of the jukebox musical Rock of Ages at Providence Performing Arts Center, it's hard to imagine that anything in the genre is as exciting, fun and perfectly pieced together as this spectacular musical combination of the glam-band hits of the late 1980s.

Some people call Grease 2 a guilty pleasure. Many more consider it to simply be a bad film. And then there's the rest of us: people who come across it at an early age (often too young to understand what the 'Reproduction' lyrics we like to sing at the dinner table mean), genuinely love it to pieces and never let it go, who at various points in our lives come across fellow fans - there is no quicker bond - with whom we can recite the dialogue and sing the songs, fuelling our shared fervour, and on and on it goes.

BWW Reviews: Ask Someone to Lend You a Ticket to LEND ME A TENOR
by Jeff Davis - Jan 19, 2014

In her curtain speech on opening night of Lend Me a Tenor, now playing at the Georgetown Palace, Artistic Director Mary Ellen Butler called playwright a Ken Ludwig a "comedic genius," and explained why she encouraged director Lannie Hilboldt to tackle the play. Hilboldt, a professional musician, has served as Musical Director on several productions and made his directorial debut with Georgetown Palace's recent production of Always, Patsy Cline. Until now, Hilboldt had not directed a play, but Butler urged him to direct Lend Me a Tenor because his musical ability would serve him well in finding the timing and rhythm of Ludwig's farce. "Music is math," Butler said to the opening night audience, "and comedy is math." (more...)

QUESTIONING DARWIN to Premiere 2/10 on HBO
by TV News Desk - Feb 6, 2014

Modern-day Creationists reject the idea that the Earth is billions of years old and that humans are descended from primates, believing instead in the literal interpretation of the Bible, which asserts that God made the world in six days and created Adam and Eve to populate the planet.

InDepth InterView Exclusive: Colm Wilkinson Talks LES MISERABLES, PHANTOM, EVITA, Concerts & A Return to the Stage?
by Pat Cerasaro - Apr 4, 2013

Today we are talking to the originator of Jean Valjean in LES MISERABLES onstage and a preeminent Phantom (and the first to actually play the role) in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA who has clearly made a major mark with his performances in the theatre - not to mention his work on the original concept albums of EVITA and JEKYLL & HYDE - who now makes the leap to the big screen in his featured role in the super-successful feature film iteration of the Claude-Michel Schonberg/Alain Boublil musical based on the Victor Hugo novel - the titanically talented Colm Wilkinson. Opening up about his work in the original Royal Shakespeare Company production of LES MISERABLES and his collaboration with the creative team and cast of actors as well as his association with producer Cameron Mackintosh, director Trevor Nunn and more, Wilkinson details the finer points of creating one of the modern musical theatre's most memorable characters, from his first audition through to the West End, Broadway and beyond. Additionally, Wilkinson reveals all about shooting the feature film version, with Broadway/Hollywood superstar Hugh Jackman taking over the leading role and whether he would consider taking on another character in the show after having essaying Jean Valjean onstage and the Monsignor onscreen - maybe Javert? Plus, Wilkinson shares backstage stories involving fellow theatrical luminaries like Trevor Nunn, Tim Rice, Andrew Lloyd Webber and more in this career-spanning conversation with one of the mega-musical era's most major of stars - - all of that and much, much more awaits!
