Suzette Richardson Bacigalupi Pens IF I HAD LIVED IN BETHLEHEM
by BWW News Desk - Sep 9, 2016

'If I Had Lived In Bethlehem': a delightful poem inspiring faith in God's unending love. 'If I Had Lived In Bethlehem' is the creation of published author, Suzette Bacigalupi, daughter of the late Vora Hirschi Richardson. Vora was an amazing woman. She especially loved children. In the early 1960s, Vora wrote this poem. She shared it with her children and grandchildren. It is a poem about the birth of our Savior through the eyes of a child. It was her desire that all children would develop a deep love and testimony of Jesus Christ. Suzette loved this poem as a child and recited it in front of many groups. Her desire in publishing it is to keep her mother's legacy alive. (more...)

BWW Interview: DANIEL MARTIN Gets Fancy
by Marietta Lunceford - Sep 9, 2016

Daniel Martin has written several plays, but I have been most intrigued by Theatre Downtown's upcoming production MISS FANCY, which Daniel has written and directed. Our connection stems from the story of the Avondale elephant, Miss Fancy, and her legacy that contributed to the founding of the Birmingham Zoo, a place that played a big part in my childhood. I already have my ticket to see the world premiere of MISS FANCY and I hope that my readers will also want to see this interesting, new work. MISS FANCY opens on September 15 and runs through October 1st.  For more information about show times and to order tickets, go to or call 205-565-8838.

BWW Review: STAGEright's TOXIC AVENGER – Fun but as Solid as Toxic Waste
by Jay Irwin - Sep 19, 2016

There's nothing wrong with a bit of mindless fun at the theater. Some of my happiest memories are sitting in a darkened theater laughing hysterically at Mormons or man eating plants or oversexed puppets. But while the fun in those instances may be base and mindless they were all still backed up by a well crafted and well put together show and that's where "The Toxic Avenger Musical", currently being offered from STAGEright, falls flat. Sure, it's goofy, in your face, over the top fun but appealing to our love of things a little bit gross and repeatedly calling someone a slut cannot replace good writing and pacing. (more...)

BWW Blog: Dayana Sanchez - It's Not Diversity, It's Exposure
by Guest Blogger: Dayana Sanchez - Sep 16, 2016

When we talk about a play or musical that speaks about a different culture, we can say that the production is about race and all that the race entitles. Whether or not it is speaking on love, achieving your dreams or posing a big question on humanity, we believe in it's diversity because it talks about a different experience. And we are content that there is a piece about this very culture because it relates in the most minuscule level of who we are.  (more...)

Guest Blog: Director David Mercatali On Violence, Celebrity and TONIGHT WITH DONNY STIXX
by Guest Blogger: David Mercatali - Oct 15, 2016

Two years ago, Philip Ridley called me up to say he was working on a companion piece to one of our previous collaborations, the explosive Dark Vanilla Jungle, which had charted the downfall of a vulnerable young woman in our increasingly violently patriarchal society. This would be the journey of a young man who had become victim and perpetrator in that same violent world - a sensitive soul with a dangerous edge, who you wanted to cuddle one minute and run away from the next. He was Donny Stixx, an entertainer with the confidence to go all the way to the top. I fell for him from the start. (more...)

Well here are some tips and tricks based on what I've learned in my experiences, with input from some of the cast from Our Town. (more...)

BWW Blog: Bob Marks - Building Your Book of Audition Songs

Even when an audition provides specific music to be prepared, you might be asked to 'bring your book.' Every performer requires a collection of songs that are ready to be sung at a moment's notice. In our industry, your 'book' is a physical binder that holds all of these songs, and is also the term for this repertoire of pieces that you have mastered and can perform with little or no preparation.

BWW Review: Kate Baldwin & Graham Rowat Chart Out CONSTELLATIONS at Berkshire Theatre Group
by Justin J Sacramone - Aug 11, 2016

Nick Payne's Constellations uses the hypothetical existence of a multiverse and applies it to the coupling of Marianne and Roland Over and Over again. A multiverse is the scientific theory that challenges physics and suggests all consequences of our lives are living symmetrically on a plane and the outcome is an endless roll of the dice. We witness the action progressing them forward in life as it consistently resets, skews or diverts dramatically. Boy meets girl is no longer a simple narrative. What sounds like a storytelling gimmick, expediently becomes throbbing unsuspecting drama that is as intimate as is it vast. Perhaps I would have paid attention in high school science if it was taught to me this way. (more...)
