BWW Review: When Life is Not Our Own to Live- McCasland's NEAT AND TIDYBWW Review: When Life is Not Our Own to Live- McCasland's NEAT AND TIDY
by Kristen Morale - May 18, 2015

Is it possible that the fundamental essence of who we are as people is the same, regardless of how moral or immoral our lives - how we are supposed to live and feel and how we actually do? Do all people truly want to feel loved and as though they are living instead of waiting for their lives to start - to love and be loved and not feeling like life is one gigantic waste? It is safe to say that all human beings desire these basic things that make us not only able to survive, but bring joy to our means of living each day. So what truly makes us bad people if we all seek to find life within our at times confounding need to feel our existence worthwhile? These are only some of the questions which beckon to be answer within Steven Carl McCasland's Neat and Tidy: a wonderfully heartbreaking and intriguing show of emotion which almost renders the audience a compliant child who must uncomfortably experience all that is happening before him; it is almost too powerful to explain in words, which is why I would deem this play the best, most dramatic and most beautiful that I have had the pleasure of seeing thus far.

BWW Reviews: In the Battle of the BARBIEREs, On Site Opera Picks a WinnerBWW Reviews: In the Battle of the BARBIEREs, On Site Opera Picks a Winner
by Richard Sasanow - Jun 19, 2015

Pity the poor also-rans in operatic history: Leoncavallo's LA BOHEME and even Rossini's OTELLO are perhaps the most famous titles. Oh, yes: We mustn't forget Giovanni Paisiello's IL BARBIERE DI SIVIGLIA—not after hearing On Site Opera's production in New York last week, we can't. Downstairs, upstairs, in m'lady's library, On Site introduced much of its audience last week to an “alternative universe” version of the Almavivas and the wily barber, Figaro, in a BARBIERE composed decades before the familiar version by Rossini.

BWW Reviews: SDT's Moving DOG SEES GODBWW Reviews: SDT's Moving DOG SEES GOD
by Chris Gibson - Jun 17, 2015

With the complete commercialization (a score of TV commercials, a new movie coming out, etc.) of Charles Schulz's creation, Peanuts, it seems only fitting that there should be some kind of satirical look at these classic characters. I'm not convinced that Bert V. Royal's script for DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD is completely successful at offering us a look at the teenage version of them, but it does tell a very poignant and moving story amidst a barrage of debauchery and unexpected behavior. I'm just not sure this story couldn't have been told just as effectively without them as reference points, but it does make the proceedings more interesting, to say the least. Stray Dog Theatre's current production makes the most of this uneven work by giving us committed performances that overcome their shallow stereotypes to actually make us feel true emotion. It's a surprising response that I was not prepared for. Go see this show and experience something much more thoughtful than what was, perhaps, intended. (more...)

Discussing all aspects of her exciting new concert tour SEE JANE SING, Lynch opens up about the songs, stories and surprises that are in store for the lucky attendees at her East Coast appearances as well as clues us in on some of the musical selections that we can anticipate enjoying with Lynch accompanied by frequent collaborator Kate Flannery as well as her band. Additionally, Lynch reflects on the final season of GLEE, noting her favorite performances and moments as well as shares her insights into the worldwide phenomenon itself and whether or not she would enjoy being involved in a reunion or future iteration of the international hit down the line. Plus, Lynch looks ahead to new projects including several feature films as well as a pilot for a brand new sitcom that very well could appear on small screens across the country as soon as this Fall.
