Two New Stories by Kimberly Baltz are Announced
by BWW News Desk - Nov 25, 2016

Frieda the Fox and her friend Wendy the Wolf love to have adventures together. A new book released by Dog Ear Publishing shares their latest outing - a nighttime visit to the zoo. In addition, Frieda attends a tea party with her daughter, Fannie. In 'Frieda Tails Volume 3,' Frieda and her friend Wendy visit the zoo in the city one night, meeting all kinds of interesting animals. While they are there, they learn an important lesson about taking care of places where wild animals live, thanks to their new friend Tina, a tiger. In the book's second story, Frieda and her daughter Fannie get invited to a tea party with the author and her mother. They spend the afternoon drinking tea, eating cake, and playing games on top of a hill. Along the way, they learn the importance of manners, the value of having animals as friends and making new friends. The book's rhymes make the stories easy to follow, and readers will find a delicious recipe for lemon cheesecake that they can try. Marty Petersen created the charming full-color illustrations for the book, which is the third in a series starring Frieda. Frieda's character is based on a real fox that regularly visits the author's family home in Grand Lake, Colo., near Rocky Mountain National Park. Baltz received a bachelor's degree in economics from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and graduated from the University of Colorado School of Law. Baltz, who has written stories and poetry since she was a young girl, also enjoys working with acrylics and pastels to create art. Petersen has degrees in illustration and commercial art from the Kendall School of Design in Michigan. Petersen, who grew up drawing, sculpting and painting, has worked as a designer and illustrator for several years and enjoys illustrating children's stories. The two also collaborated on the first and second books in the series.

BWW Review: THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE at Mark Taper Forum
by Don Grigware - Nov 17, 2016

For the most part, brilliantly written classic plays make their locale the main character of the piece. Think of Tennessee Williams. All of his plays take place in the American South; poverty-stricken New Orleans sets the background for Streetcar among other plays. In Martin McDonagh's The Beauty Queen of Leenane, the small town of Leenane in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland not only displays the frequent rainy, dismal atmosphere for Mag Folan (Marie Mullen) and daughter Maureen (Aisling O'Sullivan), but it sets the lugubrious tone of isolation that cripples and destroys them. Now on the Taper stage through December 18 the Druid Company of Galway who originated the play in 1996, which went on to win four Tonys on Broadway in 1998, presents a stark portrait that lingers in the mind long after one leaves the theatre.

BWW Review: AVENUE Q at Gore Musical Theatre
by Monica Moore - Nov 14, 2016

Avenue Q is a multi-faceted, clever piece of theatre that requires complex and expertly delivered theatre techniques that would challenge the most knowledgeable and experienced theatre practitioners. Yet Gore Musical Theatre, a community theatre group in a rural town of 12 500, have produced this show. It is highly entertaining. Two key factors that made the show successful are; the smart move on behalf of Gore Musical Theatre to employ professional director Hamish McGregor who has specific expertise particularly in puppetry, and an outstandingly talented cast. While McGregor has successfully nurtured the talents of the cast, they needed to give him something to work with. And they sure did. The singing is sensational. The vocals were strong, deliberate and controlled. Great work Musical Director Sonya Barker. The story revolves around the character of recently graduated 'Princeton' (Tyler Dowling) as he struggles with his 'adult-world options' including negotiating his relationship with 'Kate Monster' played by Fran Brabant. These two were outstanding in their roles. Brabant's rendition of 'There's a Fine, Fine Line' was a highlight. While most scripts ask for commitment and dedication, this script demands it; 110% plus to pull it off. There is no margin for complacency. Errors would lose the audience in a heartbeat. The cast were faultless in their cues and delivery. Casting a first-timer in the role of Gary Coleman was indeed a risk but one that paid off. Fraser Gulliver was convincing in his role and endeared the audience. The musical involves the use of puppets, operated by unconcealed puppeteers, alongside human actors. Puppeteers need to be faultless whilst singing, moving and acting using a mostly foreign accent. No mean feat! To further complicate things, some of the 'live-hands' puppets require two puppeteers and I was in awe of Nicole Weir who was often the 'second person' having to manipulate the puppets alongside the main actor. The fluidity in which she moved, and at times impromptu, was achieved with a high level of skill and fully supported the story. She also sung beautifully. She is the full package. Those who played more than one character, notably Emily Mason and Craig Wadsworth moved in and out of their roles seamlessly. They played the 'bad-idea bears' who represented temptation and conscience and were a highlight for me. Dressed in expletives the story line is presented in a very earthly, 'non PC', R18 way and explores the issues of the purpose of life, love, helping others. The characters are stereo-typical, exaggerated and mostly very funny. Rosie Brown provided the perfect balance of sultry and mean (until she becomes a born-again-christian) in her role of Lucy. Bradley Gentle playing duel roles of Nicky and Trekkie, was talent personified. His characterisation was totally excellent. He engaged the audience the minute he stepped on stage and was simply delightful. The same can be said for Brad McSoriely in his excellent portrayal of Rod a guy struggling with his sexuality. Blokey-bloke Brian (Marty Grounds) and his fiance Christmas Eve, (Shelly Ballantine) played contrasting characters, juxtaposed in their world-experience but cynical in commonality were an entertaining duo. The cast should be very proud of themselves for successfully melding the puppets, assistants and human characters into one glorious entity of entertainment. Oh and special mention to the tech team. The sound was perfect! There's so much happening onstage that I'm hoping to go again.

BWW Review: In the Calm Before the Storm, Randy Rainbow Throws an ELECTION EVE PARTY at Birdland
by Troy Frisby - Nov 13, 2016

There's no easy way to talk about a performance ostensibly thrown in honor of a presidential candidate who didn't end up winning. Let's be clear: Randy Rainbow's ELECTION EVE PARTY held on Monday, night at Birdland wasn't exactly a non-partisan event. The performers dropped more 'I'm With Her' references than at an actual Clinton rally, and the party likely could've sustained itself on Rainbow's viral parodies alone. (more...)

BWW Review: Where is Heroic GUILLAUME TELL Now that We Need Him? On Stage at the Met

Despite his successes there, this was to be his operatic swan song, a story glorifying a revolutionary character--with a message that resonated, loud and strong, at the performance the night after the troubling American election.
