BWW Review: Dark Gritty Infidelity in Sidecountry's MURDER BALLAD
by Jay Irwin - Oct 24, 2016

Sometimes some of the best shows out there are the cult followed ones, the ones that are really only known by niche groups or musical theater Nerds. While mainstream audiences may go to shows about green girls or founding fathers, there are other audiences who travel off the beaten path to see shows Off-Broadway (or even Off-Off=Broadway) but those shows don't always get a life after their Off-Broadway Runs. Such a show could be the successful but short lived show "Murder Ballad". Luckily there are companies such as Sidecountry Theatre who take on these gems regionally the same way they tackled the brilliant "Passing Strange" a little while ago. And they tackle them with not only talent but also the obvious love and respect for a piece that deserves a wider audience. (more...)

by Kristen Price - Feb 6, 2017

BroadwayCon ended about 4 days ago, and since then, I've been trying to come down from the high of it all. If I had to describe it in one word, I'm not sure I could.

I'm not sure how the organizers did it, but they managed to create an event that was important, inclusive, celebratory and fun all at the same time. And I'm eternally grateful to them for doing so.
