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: OUR LADIES OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR, Duke of York's Theatre
by Jenny Gilbert - May 16, 2017

From The Sound of Music to Gareth Malone's The Choir, the redemptive power of choral singing has provided a wealth of feel-good stories. The discipline, the communal spirit, the beauty of the music bring out the best in everyone. Just not the 17-year-old pupils of Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour, a fictional convent school in the Scottish coastal town of Oban. For them, the prospect of a trip to Edinburgh to compete in a choral competition is merely a chance to be off the leash for an afternoon and 'get mental'. (more...)

BWW Blog: Cheyenne Dalton - Giving DROWSY A New Meaning
by Guest Blogger: Cheyenne Dalton - Mar 20, 2017

I was the assistant sound designer and the sound engineer for Auburn University Theatre's production of The Drowsy Chaperone. My duties ran from paperwork, to recordings, to sound pick-up, load-in, running the show, and strike. The sound designer was Anthony Narciso, who we have hired three times previously to design sound for our shows. I am still amazed at how much he can teach me, and how much I still have to learn, regardless of how well I'm doing at sound at the moment. There is never a moment when I want to stop learning about my field, or really when I want to stop learning in general. There is always going to be someone out there who knows more than I do, and it's not as threatening as it may seem. It's a challenge, yes, but also a wonderful experience of sharing and collaborating with what we know. I'm happy to announce that now I know what microphone Mariah Carey wants for her performances, and I know why she wants that, and why it matters. I can tell you what a line array is, and I've learned so much more about EQ than I thought I was going to during the run of The Drowsy Chaperone (like how bringing down a frequency will notch out those harsh "s" sounds, and how I should always cut out the low end of the frequencies).

BWW Review: ANTHONY AND CLEOPATRA, Royal Shakespeare Theatre
by Emma Cann - Apr 3, 2017

Condensing the political and military strife of ten years into a tightly concentrated 3 hours, Shakespeare's Anthony and Cleopatra is a beguiling, overwhelming mixture of tragedy, history, comedy and romance. Although the political machinations, battles and titular romance are all historically accurate, the majority of the action takes place off stage, and the play focuses on the passion, pride and greed which drive Mark Anthony, Octavius Caesar and Cleopatra, queen of Egypt.  (more...)

BWW Review: OBSESSION, Barbican
by Marianka Swain - Apr 26, 2017

'Everybody wants passion,' says Ivo van Hove in the programme interview for his latest show, but in both tone and aesthetic, his take on this doomed romance is less red-hot fire of ardour, more the cold, grey ash left in the wake of a consuming flame. It's intermittently beautiful and thoughtful, but lacks the necessary fervour that binds lover to lover, and audience to material. (more...)
