Chicago Author Tami Gilbert Pens COURAGE TO PERSEVERE
by BWW News Desk - Oct 5, 2015

CHICAGO, Oct. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ Tami Gilbert should probably have ended up a statistic: someone bitter, broken and rootless. She beat the odds and it was no accident. Born and raised in Nigeria, she was abandoned by her father when she was only eight years old and then by her mother. After being taken in by relatives, she left Africa when she was 15, expecting to live with her father. Instead she found herself unwanted and living in a cousin's dark and cold basement in Chicago, resolving to triumph over the mean circumstances life had handed her. (more...)

BWW Review: FUNNY GIRL at the Segal Centre is a Spunky and Sassy Success
by Meghan Pearson - Oct 16, 2015

The “Barbra Question” can often plague theatre companies when the idea of producing a Funny Girl musical is brought up. How can one produce the show in a way that even comes close to the iconic version that Streisand led in her breakout role? They face the additional obstacle of satisfying audience members who have the same question on their mind; audiences who are predestined to be resigned to the fact that the musical won't be as enjoyable as the first time around, that is, the version that included Barbra tripping and schmaltzing her way into their hearts.

BWW REVIEW: Holzman's CHOICE Receives World Premiere at Boston's Huntington Theatre
by Jan Nargi - Nov 11, 2015

This Fall two of Boston's finest theater companies have taken the discussion on abortion out of the public arena and made it much more personal. Last month Company One Theatre explored the devastating reality of do-it-yourself abortions among teenagers in Ruby Rae Spiegel's unflinching new play DRY LAND. Now the Tony Award-winning Huntington Theatre Company examines the lingering, long-range effects of abortion in CHOICE, a provocative new play by Winnie Holzman (Wicked, My So-Called Life) that has a woman caught in the throes of a mid-life crisis looking back on the choice she made in her feminist youth.

BWW Review: Smoothly Revised RECORDED IN HOLLYWOOD Returns to LA at Kirk Douglas Theatre
by Don Grigware - Jul 18, 2016

The name of the game in show biz is never to settle for greatness, but rather to go that extra mile and make it better. Such is the case with Recorded in Hollywood. In its transferal from a smaller Hollywood space to the Kirk Douglas Theatre,  the show provides a book by Matt Donnelly and Jamelle Dolphin that opens up even more than before to tell the true story of record producer John Dolphin. The story takes place from 1948 to 1958 in South Central, Los Angeles, when blacks were arrested for the slightest infractions of the law. Since I did not see the initial production, I am basing my opinions on this newer version. It is slick, a very slick show with a dynamic, triple threat ensemble headed by Stu James, directed superbly by Denise Dowse and choreographed to the max by Cassie Crump. The bad feature is that it only runs through August 7. (more...)
