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.

BWW RECAP: The Headless Horseman Returns in Ep. 6 of FOX's SLEEPY HOLLOW
by Rosie Hertzman - Nov 5, 2013

This week's episode opens with our heroes, Abbie and Ichabod, in the stands of a baseball game. Strangely normal, right? But we have to say we're digging it. They exchange some cute banter about the point of the sport and the merits of heckling the referee. You know, All-American things like that. (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.

BWW Reviews: Ambassador Theater's PROTEST Shows Havel's Enduring Lessons
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. Ambassador Theater's current production of 'Protest' at the Mead Theater Lab marks the culmination of a year-long celebration here in Washington, D.C. of the playwright-President's legacy. Under the direction of Gail Humphries-Mardirosian audiences can now witness a fascinating re-interpretation of what is perhaps Havel's deepest, most confessional work on life under an oppressive regime.

by David De Almo - May 30, 2014

Burbage Theatre Company is proving to be a gem of a small company. Last season's "The Liar" was one of the funnier, tighter, and most professional shows I saw all of last year, and this Spring's production of "Orson's Shadow" by Austin Pendleton is every bit as good. The show is the 2nd in a shortened, 3-play season BTC is staging at the Artists' Exchange in Cranston, bookended by the recently closed "Doctor Cerberus" and the about to open "The Bald Soprano," by Eugene Ionesco.

BWW Reviews: Touching and Hilarious ANGELS IN AMERICA: PERESTROIKA at Epic
by David De Almo - Jun 16, 2014

Go see 'Angels in America: Perestroika' at Epic Theatre Company. There isn't a more straightforward way to say it. The possibly lesser known 2nd Half of Tony Kushner's Epic play about the AIDS epidemic in 1980's New York is playing currently at Epic's larger space at 82 Rolfe Square in Cranston, and it's superlative. It's shocking how funny Kushner can make the citizens of his New York, without making it seem trite or irreverent. (more...)

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.

by Kevin Sherwin - Jan 28, 2014

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. Directed by Antony Thomas (HBO's Peabody-winning 'For Neda'), QUESTIONING DARWIN takes an in-depth look at the views of those who reject Charles Darwin's theory of evolution while chronicling Darwin's own journey as a young man whose beliefs were changed when he experienced the world first-hand.

BWW Reviews: First Crack at a New Comic Classic: VANYA AND SONIA at Center Stage
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Apr 26, 2014

It is gratifying that Christopher Durang's latest comedy, Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, which is assuredly going to be produced in time by every community theater company in the country, gets its Baltimore premiere in style at Center Stage, as a sort of reference production by which other local ones can be gauged. The show, which rolled out over the last two years in regional test runs, then at the Lincoln Center, and then on Broadway, where it closed last year, is in joint production here with the Kansas City Repertory Theatre. The fun seems effortless; with a solid cast and wonderful direction by Eric Rosen at Center Stage, of course nothing is going to go wrong. But I'm willing to bet it would take a lot of trying to do this well-made play badly; I expect we'll find out. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Counter-Productions Presents a Perfectly Delightful PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE
by Robert Barossi - Apr 21, 2014

Lately, it seems as if there's been something in the air in the Rhode Island theatre scene. Or maybe something in the drinking water. Something rather dark. There are a number of plays that have just ended, are running currently, or are about to open, which deal with very dark, disturbing or depressing themes and images. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, of course. And no rhyme or reason for why it's so pervasive right now, it's mere coincidence. Still, there's a lot of dark out there right now and it's nice to mix things up with lighter fare, perhaps something along the lines of the delightful production of Picasso at the Lapin Agile, presented by Counter-Productions Theatre Company, which just closed at Ninety-Five Empire. (more...)
