BWW Review: GREASE: LIVE Reinvents What a Live TV Musical Can/Should Be!BWW Review: GREASE: LIVE Reinvents What a Live TV Musical Can/Should Be!
by Matt Tamanini - Jan 31, 2016

Leave it to the network that reinvented television with AMERICAN IDOL and created SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, one of the most artistically significant shows in recent memory, to figure out the proper balance in merging musical theatre and live television. FOX's GREASE: LIVE learned from three years of live, middling musicals on NBC (the satisfying WIZ LIVE! notwithstanding) and produced the best, most thrilling live TV musical in half a century.

BWW Blog: Meet High School Student Lauren Ward - True or False: There Are No Small PartsBWW Blog: Meet High School Student Lauren Ward - True or False: There Are No Small Parts
by Guest Blogger: Lauren Ward - Jan 28, 2016

Everybody knows the old saying: "There are no small parts, only small actors." Back in December, my theatre troupe at school was in the midst of filming auditions for our production of Ghost the Musical when our director announced that there would be a separate round of auditions for those specifically interested in ensemble positions. This came as a nice surprise seeing as the majority, including myself, tend to go for the leads or supporting roles when audition time rolls around. Similarly, it's happened many times where I've been disappointed when I've gotten "stuck" in the ensemble when I was expecting something a little "bigger." I got to thinking about why the ensemble gets overlooked or underappreciated so much, and whether or not I should have been disappointed. After all, I never seemed to have less fun doing a show because I wasn't a lead role. I think people tend to consider the ensemble as a comparatively small or insignificant role in the span of the entire production, and from this I began to make conclusions about whether or not the old saying reigns true: Is there really no such thing as a small part?

BWW Column: How Can GALAVANT Improve if Renewed for Unlikely Third Season?BWW Column: How Can GALAVANT Improve if Renewed for Unlikely Third Season?
by Matt Tamanini - Feb 7, 2016

The second season of ABC's medieval musical comedy GALAVANT opens with a song entitled 'A New Season,' a direct response to the nearly unanimous opinion that it would be cancelled after its initial eight-episode run. However, despite middling numbers, ABC brought the quirky show from Dan Fogelman, Alan Menken, and Glenn Slater back this January. While I thought the sophomore season's comedy and storytelling were far superior to the often meandering first season's, Season 2 has struggled to find an audience, rarely able to garner even half the rating's share of Season 1. So, while it is looking extremely unlikely that ABC will roll the dice on the show again, if they do, I have some suggestions for Team GALAVANT that I think will give them a fighting chance in Season 3.

Lexington, KY—Appalachia is known for its distinct voice and unique culture, and its long tradition of folk art, storytelling, and music has made the region a creative hotbed. Collectors have long sought work from the weavers of the Appalachian Craft Revival as well as from modern potters and glass blowers from towns like Berea and Asheville. Appalachia's strong oral tradition, where rhymes and stories continue to be passed from one generation to the next, has led to a flourishing literary community boasting best-selling novelists like Lee Smith, Silas House, Ron Rash, and Sharyn McCrumb. Likewise, Appalachia's influence on music ranges from the “Mother of Folk” Jean Ritchie to the “Father of Bluegrass” Bill Monroe. (more...)

BWW Review: High-Energy HANDS ON A HARDBODY is Enjoyable, but Uneven at the Garden TheatreBWW Review: High-Energy HANDS ON A HARDBODY is Enjoyable, but Uneven at the Garden Theatre
by Matt Tamanini - Feb 4, 2016

Let's get this out of the way first, the 'hardbody' in the title is a truck, a Nissan pickup truck to be exact; and while the name of the musical, HANDS ON A HARDBODY, might sound a teensy bit risque, it is filled with encouraging messages and life-affirming themes set to a high energy modern score. Presented by TheatreWorks Florida, the musical runs through February 21st at the Garden Theatre, and features an extremely game and talented cast, who unfortunately is not used in a way that comes close to maximizing their immense collective talent. The musical by Doug Wright (book), Amanda Green (music and lyrics), and Trey Anastasio of the band Phish (music) is based on a 1997 documentary of the same name about a Texas contest in which the person who keeps his or her hand on a truck the longest, wins it. While the show's ensemble construction gives nearly every cast-member multiple moments to vocally shine, it seems like a substantial amount of them have been shoehorned into roles that don't exactly match up with their particular vocal ranges, resulting in fairly regular pitch issues. That not-so minor issue aside, the show is a joyous, toe-tapping celebration of all the things, good and bad, that make people special. (more...)
