by BWW News Desk - Nov 6, 2014

Fresh from a third straight year of sold-out performances at the Toronto Fringe, Shakespeare BASH'd ventures into darkness with Shakespeare's seminal tragedy, Macbeth. The company is quickly becoming known for their fast paced, text-based, bare bones approach to presenting the Bard's cannon. "We're bringing Shakespeare back to the way we believe it was originally intended," says Shakespeare BASH'd Artistic Director James Wallis. "We're taking something classical and getting rid of the stigma so often associated with it." By presenting their productions in bars throughout Toronto, with very little set and an emphasis on clear text, audiences experience the work in a relaxed, immersive atmosphere where patrons are sitting on the edge of their seats, transported into the multifaceted world of Shakespeare's text.

by Richard Sasanow - Nov 18, 2014

Compared to Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek as Katerina Ismailova in LADY Macbeth OF MTSENSK at the Met, Barbara Stanwyck and Lana Turner were couple of pikers in their film noir triumphs, “Double Indemnity” and “The Postman Always Rings Twice.” Westbroek kills her father-in-law with rat poison, strangles her husband with her lover's belt and, as the piece de resistence, drowns her lover's new girlfriend, while going under herself. And she has to do it all while effortlessly singing Shostakovich's demanding score. What a dame! (more...)
