BWW Review: DRACULA is a Jolly Good Old Thrill at Genesian Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Oct 24, 2016

Step back in time for a night of gothic sets, raving lunatics, heroes and heroines; And of course, you can Count on a vampire or two. Bram Stoker's Dracula receives a Rocky Horror refresh, in this latest season at the Genesian Theatre. Being a seminal classic, The Genesian Theatre stalls are the perfect location for this eerie and looming production that feels it may swallow you up at any moment. An evening equally spooky as entertaining, director Michael Heming has stayed true to the years of interpretations of the evil Count Dracula. Classical elements abound in the production and characterisation to make for a nostalgic night. (more...)

BWW Review: THE TURQUOISE ELEPHANT Trumpets the Absurdities of Now at Griffin Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Oct 24, 2016

There is little on this planet more absurd than the way we, the human race, treat it; nonetheless the final offering of Griffin Theatre mainstage for the year comes pretty close. The Turquoise Elephant extrapolates the bizarre misconduct of modern society for a pre-apocalyptic glimpse into the life of a rich and powerful family as they in each their own fashion do their part to destroy the world. In its symbolism, Stephen Carleton's text weaves fantastic, but not unrealistic, circumstance with director Gale Edwards' Luhrmannian technicolour styling for quite the nihilistic spectacle.

BWW Review: '27' is a Diverting Evening on the Left Bank with Gertrude and Alice B.
by Richard Sasanow - Oct 24, 2016

In many ways, '27'--the 90-minute the chamber opera about Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas and their circle, composed by Ricky Ian Gordon to a Royce Vavrek libretto--is an old-fashioned love story. It just happens to be about two women who entertained and collected (in all senses) some of the most important visual artists and writers of the first half of the century at a time when Paris was still the hub of the artistic world and 27 rue de Fleurus, the women's home, was its epicenter.

BWW Review: HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME a Brilliant Miracle
by Trevor Durham - Oct 23, 2016

Once in a very rare moment do you see community art shine, shine like a diamond in the rough, shine like nothing you could have hoped to find there. Rarely can one expect to find New York quality shows in a space outside of the great white way, perhaps Boston or Chicago. Not Broward, never Broward. Some blessings reach far, in the figure of Patrick Fitzwater and Slow Burn Theatre, opening their bright new season with a shock. Under a very exclusive contract, Fitzwater and his team are premiering The Hunchback of Notre Dame, a Disney produced show with only four productions ever produced. The score is one of the most challenging and daunting ever written, the characters dark as Victor Hugo's original novel, and technical nightmares never seen in south Florida. Somehow, through the magic of his performers (and a full choir), Fitzwater puts on a premiere that rivals New York, a show that most have never seen before, certainly one of the greatest productions the state has ever seen.

BWW Feature: Theatre UCF Shines While Blurring Line Between Academic & Professional Theatre

BWW Review: FOX's THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is an Underwhelming, Sanitized Disappointment
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 20, 2016

I am aware that what I am about to write is likely going to be a critical outlier, but I didn't hate FOX's television adaptation of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, which they clumsily subtitled LET'S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN. Now, I didn't particularly like it either, but to be frank (pun intended), I was expecting it to be far, far worse. While I am not a ROCKY HORROR expert, there didn't appear to be any horrendous missteps in the broadcast, in fact there were moments, even entire scenes, that were passably entertaining. However, on the whole, the endeavor just Kept bringing to mind one simple question; 'Why?' (more...)

by Stephen Sorokoff - Oct 19, 2016

Lovers of Cabaret flocked to New York's Jazz at Lincoln Center's Rose Theatre last night to attend The 27th New York Cabaret Convention and BroadwayWorld was there. Unlike a political convention there was complete agreement that this annual event produced and sponsored by the Mabel Mercer Foundation is one of the best entertainment experiences of the year.  Madam Chairman' and artistic director KT Sullivan Kept complete order as one by one the wonderful vocalists made their case to the extremely knowledgeable 'delegates' filling Rose Hall at Jazz at Lincoln Center. It's not politically correct to pick winners at the annual event, which presents newcomers and veterans of the cabaret art form, but if there's one......  The Audience!  For two hours they hear some great music and get a potpourri of diverse singing styles that make the long evening seem brief.  The superb song stylist and New York based vocalist Natalie Douglas was deservedly presented the prestigious Donald F. Smith award, and legend Maureen McGovern received the Mable Mercer Award.  (more...)

Guest Blog: Director David Mercatali On Violence, Celebrity and TONIGHT WITH DONNY STIXX
by Guest Blogger: David Mercatali - Oct 15, 2016

Two years ago, Philip Ridley called me up to say he was working on a companion piece to one of our previous collaborations, the explosive Dark Vanilla Jungle, which had charted the downfall of a vulnerable young woman in our increasingly violently patriarchal society. This would be the journey of a young man who had become victim and perpetrator in that same violent world - a sensitive soul with a dangerous edge, who you wanted to cuddle one minute and run away from the next. He was Donny Stixx, an entertainer with the confidence to go all the way to the top. I fell for him from the start. (more...)
