BWW Interview: Tony Winner Brian Dennehy on Why He Returns to Theatre, New Film KNIGHT OF CUPS
by Matt Tamanini - Mar 13, 2016

Few actors have had a career to rival that of Brian Dennehy, either in terms of success or longevity. With over 150 on-screen credits, the 77-year-old actor has earned a Golden Globe Award and six Emmy nominations. However, it is his decades of experience on the stage that keep his artistic batteries running. 'I work in the theatre a lot, and in the theatre I can call upon the geniuses that may be with us, and may not be; Arthur Miller or Eugene O'Neill or Beckett or Shakespeare or Chekov,' he said. 'However dead they may be, their work is not dead. It is possible to breathe new life and new oxygen and new ideas into those wonderful pieces of work. So I don't depend upon Hollywood, or the studios, or movies, or television, although I work in them and certainly won't say no, but I don't depend on them for intellectual stimulus or satisfaction.'

BWW Review: ALL MY LOVE A GREAT AUSTRALIAN LOVE STORY at Riverside Theatre's Parramatta
by Brodie Paparella - Feb 18, 2016

What is it about love that captures the artist so wholly and capitalises so perpetually? Why is it that no two things written about love seem to be the same, or have the same resonance, but every new contribution exists as a thrilling dimension to this emotion seemingly essential to human life? In this tale of lasting love, two of Australia's greatest known writers find themselves in the throes of a relationship never meant to be. All My Love is the true story of Henry Lawson, known as Australia's 'greatest short story writer', and radical writer and poetess Mary Gilmore who find a budding relationship in 19th century Sydney. As their secret engagement becomes entangled in a rivalry between their early-feminist mothers, a series of Love Letters exchanged between them never arrive, and by the time they discover that what was thought to be rejection was nothing more than a cruel twist of fate, it is too late to turn back from their destinies.
