BWW Review: GENERATION ME Tackles Important Teen Issues
by Ellen Dostal - Sep 19, 2016

Two years ago this teen musical was one of the best new works to come through Hollywood. Its young writers Julie Soto, Ryan Warren, and composer Will Finan had found a way to tell a story about teen suicide that was relatable to both youth and adults alike. It's a parent's worst nightmare; the thought of your own child suffering in silence and one that also speaks to the isolation that persists among many adults as well. (more...)

BWW Recap: THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER Ties Up Loose Ends on Tonight's Season Finale
by Kara McCoy - Nov 17, 2015

Alright, folks. It's season finale time, so let's just cut to the chase. Finales are all about tying up Loose Ends, and tonight's episode of THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER was no exception. First there's that little issue of vengeance that's been hanging over Wilk and Toran's heads since pretty much the pilot. Would tonight finally be the night to avenge their butchered wives? Well...Actually...No. And turns out, I am so okay with that, because all season long, I couldn't help but look at Leon and Locke and think, y'know what, they kinda seem...not...that...bad...? In the first of many showdowns tonight, Toran confronts Locke about his wife's slaughter. Locke admits that he acted under orders, but totally owns what he did. He takes responsibility, but he seems sorry for it--even if he doesn't come out and say it. He doesn't beg for mercy because he knows he doesn't deserve it. Toran, in turn, says that Locke has at least earned himself a fair fight. Which was really nice of him, but I don't think he actually expected to lose. Lucky for him, Locke is a pretty honorable guy and chooses to spare Toran's life, on the agreement that their score is now settled. So. There's Toran's vengeance. Check. (more...)

BWW Review: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis' Outstanding New Musical GEORAMA
by Chris Gibson - Jan 25, 2016

Thanks to the developmental work that occurred during The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis' Ignite! Play Festival in 2014 we now have the opportunity to witness the fruit of their labors; the world premier of a very entertaining new musical called GEORAMA. This play tells a fascinating story that is truly a forgotten piece of history that deserves to be celebrated. This production is staged in the Studio Theatre of the Loretto-Hilton, and that adds additional atmosphere and intimacy that makes the story connect in a uniquely vibrant manner. As an avid film fan, I'd read a bit about the history of 'motion pictures', and found countless early examples of flip books, and the like, but nothing prepared me for the sadly neglected tale of John Banvard, who created a virtual recreation of the wonders of the Mississippi River on a scrolling canvas that stretched for miles. That's quite a feat, and so is this staging. I cannot recommend it highly enough! It's truly a show that deserves an audience both young and old to appreciate, or become aware of, something that was truly as magical as the spectacle this artist created. (more...)
