BWW Reviews: South Africa's MIES JULIE Thunders Into Shakespeare Theatre

Photo Flash: First Look at Madeleine Lambert and Jim O'Brien in The Gamm's BLACKBIRD
by BWW News Desk - May 5, 2014

The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre presents Blackbird by David Harrower and directed by Tony Estrella. It stars Madeleine Lambert and Jim O'Brien and runs from May 1 to June 1. Tickets are available here. Scottish playwright David Harrower's most acclaimed and most controversial play, Blackbird 'is theater at its most elemental,' says The New York Times. In a littered factory break room, 55-year-old Ray and 27-year-old Una engage in a confrontation so real and raw that you feel you should Look Away. But how can you? Fifteen years earlier, the two had a sexual affair...when she was 12. Ray has assumed a new identity and a new life following his imprisonment, while Una has not stopped searching for answers to her conflicting emotions. What emerges from the recriminations and explanations is a complex relationship that blurs the boundaries between love and lust, obsession and abuse. Uncompromising, shocking and surprisingly tender, Blackbirdwill leave you hanging on every word and every uncomfortable silence. For mature audiences only. (more...)

BWW Reviews: A Dark and Timely THE LOVE OF THE NIGHTINGALE at Constellation Theatre
by Andrew White - May 4, 2014

Constellation's spell-binding production of Timberlake Wertenbaker's The Love of the Nightingale may have an old-fashioned name or two, but it is as timely a production as you will ever see. Director Allison Arkell Stockman understands that Greek mythology, like tragedy itself, is a canvas upon which we paint our darkest fears and ponder their meaning. The play paints a complex picture in which victims, bystanders and perpetrators compete for the audience's sympathy; and with Constellation's consistently strong performances, the journey is one of the most thought- provoking I have seen this season.

BWW Reviews: Jody Oberfelder's 4CHAMBERS Explores the Depths of the Heart
by Jessica Abejar - Mar 12, 2014

When describing 4CHAMBERS by Jody Oberfelder Projects, one should not take the phrase 'immersive theater' lightly. From the moment choreographer and mastermind Jody Oberfelder personally introduces her audience of 12 to the piece and then selects them one by one, taking both hands into hers and locking eyes that stare straight into the soul, the audience is propelled into what the show promotes itself as 'a sensorial journey into the human heart.' WARNING: This show is not for the light of heart or for anyone unwilling to open their heart to the journey that is to come. (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Raunchiest SILENCE! You'll Ever Hear
by Wendi Reichstein - Jul 1, 2014

While riding along the freeway, drivers are often faced with the oxymoron of a car wreck on the side of the road. Though it is often gruesome and inappropriate to stare, it is equally as challenging to Look Away. No matter how shocking or repugnant, your eyes are glued to the scene, both attempting to understand what has just happened, and seeing what will happen next. Such was my experience at the Salvage Vanguard Theatre, watching the regional premiere of Silence! The Musical. Did I love it? No. But despite its raunchy lyrics and eye roll-worthy dialogue, its redeeming music and talented ensemble kept me in my seat for nearly an hour and a half. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Sharp Tongues in Seattle Rep's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF?
by Jay Irwin - Apr 24, 2014

As Americans we tend to love to witness a good familial car wreck. That's why dysfunctional family dramas are so popular (not to mention the hoards of people behaving badly on reality TV). But long before the Weston's of Osage County hurled their first insult or popped their first pill, George and Martha of Edward Albee's classic dark comedy “Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”, currently playing at the Seattle Rep, were knocking back two or three or 15 stiff ones and letting the secrets and venom fly. And Albee's play feels just as fresh today as it ever has, due in no small part to this pitch perfect production. So I guess bad manners never go out of style. (more...)

BWW Reviews: RACE Gets Under the Skin
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Apr 15, 2014

Race, David Mamet's incendiary exploration of truth and lies provoked by racial identity and expectation, has just completed its first week at Trustus Side Door Theatre, in collaboration with the NiA Company. Happily for Columbia audiences, it runs for another week, allowing continued opportunity for this production to provoke and bestir. Staged here in the small, spare environment of a black box theatre, Race is a decidedly adult drama underscored by barbed wit and suspense, and its enforced intimate setting creates a hothouse urgency that literally does not allow one to Look Away. Attention, as has been famously said in other theatre contexts, must be paid. (more...)
