BWW Review: DEAR WORLD Concert Reading Beguiles at VPAC
by Don Grigware - Oct 3, 2016

Great works of literature are often beautifully adapted into opera and ballet. Think of Federico Garcia Lorca's The House of Bernarda Alba, to name just one. Jean Giraudoux's The Madwoman of Chaillot is also tremendously passionate and digs deep into the female psyche, producing emotional rhythms that lend themselves to music. Whereas Lorca's work concentrates on sexual repression, Giraudoux's is more romantic and... goes a step further into the realm of championing a cause, a desire to right human wrongs and change the world.

BWW Recap: And Then There Were Three on Shocking AMERICAN HORROR STORY
by Jessica Naftaly - Nov 3, 2016

With only two more episodes left of AMERICAN HORROR STORY and a death toll we're just counting down, as could be predicted 'Chapter 7' would be filled with more carnage, brutality, and...you guessed it...death. The show went from five to three this week and the only thing keeping the audience hanging on with suspense is the knowledge that only one of this thrilling cast of characters will survive. This episode, as did last week's, toed the line between horror and torture porn, but ultimately barely treads above that water by focusing on the compelling performances and dealing with the effects this hellish situation is having on these people. As the steaks are upped, everyone appears to be pushed to the edge and it is clear that no one will walk away without first getting their hands dirty. (more...)
