BWW Review: 1,600 Words About Why You Should Go See SPAMALOT At Studio Tenn
by Jeffrey Ellis - May 8, 2017

Whether it's seeing Matt Logan as King Arthur galumphing around onstage, as if astride a horse with Garris Wimmer not far behind providing the necessary sound effects with two halves of one empty coconut shell, or watching Jake Speck, as a feckless wannabe Knight of the Round Table, crap his pants anytime he hears a threatening sound or encounters the menacing Black Knight (or anyone else who might say 'boo' to the goose who is Sir Robin), or any other manner of zany characters who find themselves right smack in the middle of the most ridiculous of situations - Monty Python's Spamalot, now in an altogether splendid production from Studio Tenn, will supply you with plenty of laughs and/or the fodder to keep you amusingly sated until the next time you need a good guffaw or two.

Whitney Biennial 2017: Best Performance Artist 'Seb-The Younger' By Barry Kostrinsky
by Barry Kostrinsky - May 24, 2017

There is so much wrong with the Whitney Biennial I hardly know where to start. The every two year show of American artists is anything but that. I asked someone if the last biennial was two or three years ago and they quipped back it is a biennial, it was two years ago. Actually it was three years ago. The museum truthfully tells they were not ready for the show in the new building and gave themselves an extra year. lyingly they say it took the curators a long time to visit all the studios across the country. The exhibit is suppose to be of American artists. What is an American artist these days? Indeed a good 30% don't live nor work in the US. I don't find much use for national cheering in exhibitions but if you claim to be American have only American cheese, no matter how inferior it is to Gruyere. And what is the title of the exhibit? There is none. Indeed such a disperse group of artists makes a title hard to stick to many of the members, maybe a good title would  be,' Politically, Financially and Socially correct enough to make it here'.

BWW Review: CURIOUS INCIDENT... at TPAC Could Change Your Life

The power of theater to transport and to transform is felt most acutely - experienced most vividly - in Simon Stephens' play Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, based upon the novel of the same name by Mark Haddon, now onstage at Tennessee Performing Arts Center's Andrew Jackson Hall through Sunday.
