BWW Reviews: THE BOOK OF MORMON is Joyfully Irreverent and Surprisingly Uplifting
by David Clarke - Sep 5, 2013

In March 2011, Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone's joyfully irreverent, soulfully blasphemous, and wholly scandalous comedy THE BOOK OF MORMON took Broadway by storm, going on to win 9 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, and Best Score. The musical quickly developed a ravenous parish of fans that simply couldn't get enough of the bawdy spectacle, and left many around the nation counting the days until the First National Tour kicked off. After a short two-and-a-half year wait, Houston audiences are getting their chance to experience the production, and judging by last night's reaction, we couldn't be more enthusiastic or pleased. Now holding a coveted spot as one of the best musicals I have ever seen, this show was definitely worth the wait! (more...)

Deborah Schwartz Releases Novel WOMAN ON TOP
by BWW News Desk - Sep 5, 2013

Whether it's Woody Allen's latest movie, Blue Jasmine, or looking at the recent cover of The New Yorker magazine showing Anthony Weiner on top of the Empire State Building, one has to wonder has anything changed since Nora slammed the door over a hundred years ago in Ibsen's iconic play A Doll's House? Deborah Schwartz made sure that they did in her timely novel, Woman on Top (Laudan Press). The juxtaposition of Jasmine sitting on a bench jabbering aimlessly at the end of Woody's movie, and Kate, the heroine in Deborah's novel, sitting on top of Mount Kilimanjaro, is striking! (more...)

BWW Blog: Eric Ulloa of Goodspeed's THE MOST HAPPY FELLA - I Can Cook Too
by Guest Blogger: Eric Ulloa - Nov 1, 2013

Like a page straight out of a comic opera, 'The Most Happy Fella' utilizes a trio of comic relief to introduce us to the world of Tony's Vineyard and just how damn Italian it all is. This relief comes in the form of three chefs that work for Tony and when not cooking, they belt out their powerhouse voices (you have NO idea what you're in store for until you hear them!) that bring down the house eight shows a week. This week I give you the actors that bring Pasquale, Guiseppe and Ciccio to life - Martin Sola, Greg Roderick and Daniel Berryman. I hope you enjoy getting to know this tasty trio! (I promise that sounded a lot less creepy in my head) (more...)

BBC America's ALMOST ROYAL to Debut 6/21
by TV News Desk - May 12, 2014

Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the throne, siblings Georgie (Ed Gamble) and Poppy Carlton (Amy Hoggart) were born into a life of privilege, splendor and royalty...almost. BBC AMERICA's first original comedy series, Almost Royal, follows the two young British aristocrats as they venture outside the palace and across the pond on their first trip to the U.S., where they interact with real-life, unsuspecting everyday Americans. Crowns and cricket are traded for tobacco and baseball, Buckingham is swapped for Beverly Hills, and instead of tea with the duke and duchess, it's a protein pump with Fabio and a ride along a Texan range. Georgie and Poppy are about to have their silver spoons plucked from their mouths and their thrones pulled right Out From Under them. BBC AMERICA's half-hour comedy series, Almost Royal, premieres with back-to-back episodes Saturday, June 21, 10:00pm ET following the Orphan Black season two finale. (more...)

Glee-Cap: 100!
by Robert Lawlor - Mar 18, 2014

How does one measure a hundred episodes of Glee? In group numbers, in Blaine's hair gel, in Fondue for Two, in diva-offs, in mash-ups, and oh so much more. Tonight marks the 100th episode of Glee and with some familiar faces and some remixed Glee classics - this episode is sure to mark the next dynasty in Glee. Here's to the New Directions old and new, and to Glee! Mercedes and Rachel return to McKinley to say goodbye to the legacy of glee club, and each is acting like the diva they are - apparently nothing has changed. Will is set to celebrate 100 lessons of glee club with remixed classics from the past, and what better way to that then with some help from April Rhodes (Kristin Chenoweth). April is up to her usual boozy ways, and what better way to raise a glass to New Directions than with a little 'Raise Your Glass', which Blaine is quick to point out was in fact a Warblers number, but what would a New Direction be without a good Warbler?

Familiar songs, from Out From Under, to Toxic to Lucky are suddenly interesting, and often achingly autobiographical in content. (more...)

Roselyn Jewell Announces Publication of Her First Book, 'The Cuneiform Caper'
by BWW News Desk - Jul 12, 2014

Roselyn Jewell, a new but soon to be well known name in romance, entered the book world July 1st, with the arrival of her first book, The Cuneiform Caper. Caper is available in Kindle and paperback form on Amazon, both the US and UK sites. It is a great debut, with equal elements romance and mystery. Caper features main characters Reese and Caleb, who both have distinct and enjoyable personalities. Reese discovers a rare, valuable artifact, only to have it promptly stolen Out From Under her. She enlists the help of Caleb, an old friend, and as they embark on the journey to solve the mystery of the theft, they get to learn things about themselves as well as each other, and end up with more than they bargained for, professionally and personally. About the novel, one reviewer states, 'While it had the traditional romance aspects, it also had a nice amount of suspense and intrigue mixed with adventure. The main characters were not one dimensional. I found Reese to be a great heroine and a great mix of the damsel in distress but also a woman who was tough. Caleb, the male counterpart, was easy to fall in love with.' The Cuneiform Caper is available at Amazon.com. It is priced at $2.99 and is approximately 125 pages long. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Stark Naked Theatre Company's FAITH HEALER Creates Skeptics and Believers
by David Clarke - Jan 26, 2014

When it comes to theatre in Houston, I find that Kim Tobin and Philip Lehl, Co-Executive Directors at Stark Naked Theatre Company, only program plays that everyone should see. Thus, when they announced Brian Friel's FAITH HEALER, a play I was unfamiliar with, I began to immerse myself in any scrap of material I could find about the play, knowing it was a show I ought to know. After catching the final preview performance earlier this week, I felt like the boat must have passed me by. Generally regarded as a masterpiece, Brian Friel's FAITH HEALER didn't impress me in the ways that it seemingly bowls everyone else over. (more...)

BWW Blog: Libby Servais of Transcendence Theatre Company's 'Broadway Under the Stars' - Music of the Night
by Guest Blogger: Libby Servais - Aug 21, 2014

After Ben Vereen's legendary show here at Transcendence Theatre Company, we TTC artists are continuously reflecting on the cherished wisdom and inspiration that Ben has left deeply rooted into our hearts. One moment in particular that I continue to think about is when I asked Ben if he was excited for his show and he replied with a gigantic grin and both hands in the air, 'I wake up excited! Everyday!' I also surrendered my hands into the air and said 'Me too!' And then I realized that I was standing outside a vineyard of grapes, giggling with Ben Vereen about how we must live each day to the fullest... Later he also shared with our company, 'Don't knock em' dead. They're already dead, knock em' into life!' Those epic words will stick with me forever. Basically, when I grow up, I want to be like Ben Vereen! (more...)
