BWW Review: THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO Offers a Bouquet of Musical Delights at Washington National Opera
by Jeffrey Walker - Sep 28, 2016

Legend has it there were five encores at the triumphant Viennese premiere of Mozart and da Ponte's Le Nozze di Figaro on May 1, 1786. By the same token, Washington National Opera's new production of the effervescent comic opera deserved just as many ovations. Now playing through Sunday, October 2 in the Kennedy Center Opera House, THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO with Mozart's bubbly score and de Ponte's delicious libretto sparkles as bright as ever. The cast of first class singing-actors and the prime conducting skills of James Gaffigan are reason enough to take a seat for this masterpiece. (more...)

BWW Review: Lipscomb's Cinematic BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

New York Times Best-Selling Author and Lifestyle Guru, Michael Flocker, is Back with a New Novel
by BWW News Desk - Oct 2, 2016

He influenced millions of men with 'The Metrosexual Guide to Style,' he outlined the path to Nirvana with 'The Hedonism Handbook,' and he skewered corporate life with 'Death by Powerpoint.' Now, he's back with a brand new novel and he wants to change your life again, this time with fiction. Says Flocker, 'Like any other work of art, a great novel should affect you viscerally. Just as you might be moved to tears by a beautiful film, or haunted by a melancholy piece of music, a novel should stimulate your thoughts and emotions. It should leave you with a new perspective or an emotional understanding that you didn't have before.' The Sound of Falling Stars is an unconventional love story that continually shifts direction, location, and even time, as layers unfold and the extraordinary connections between the past and the present, and the colorful cast of characters, are revealed. It is a sly and surprising story that illustrates how love can always come back to us, even after decades of silence, and change everything. When Martin Krumm learns that a beloved character from his childhood in Berlin has died, he returns to his mother's home in England in search of answers. But he gets a lot more than he bargained for when a series of secrets and revelations come tumbling out from the past. Disturbed by what he discovers, he embarks on a strange and twisting journey that takes him from the English countryside to the bright lights of Berlin and the winding canals and cobblestoned streets of Amsterdam. Armed with just a name and an old address, he sets out in search of someone he has never met - someone he must find if he is ever to learn the truth about the secrets that were left behind. About the Author Michael Flocker is a New York Times best-selling author whose works of non-fiction have been published in 22 countries. He has written for a variety of international magazines and newspapers, and USA Today once referred to him as 'The Oracle of Panache,' adding that his 'success bubbles up from his almost Oscar Wilde-like tone.' He has appeared on CNN, BBC, NPR and the TODAY show, and he has done red carpet commentary at the Golden Globes for the E! network. He has also worked as an editorial director, a screenwriter, a photographer, an actor and a television host. This is his first novel.

BWW Review: PRESENT LAUGHTER a Clever Comedic Confection
by Frank Benge - Nov 21, 2016

PRESENT LAUGHTER is a 1939 comedy by Noel Coward. The play's title comes from a song in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, 'present mirth hath present laughter', that urges the sense of carpe diem. Coward repeats one of his signature theatrical devices at the end of the play, where the main characters tiptoe out as the curtain falls - a device that he also used in Private Lives, Hay Fever and Blithe Spirit. The plot follows the life of self-obsessed actor Garry Essendine (Marc Pouhe) as he prepares for a theatrical tour in Africa. Amid a series of events that border on farce, Garry has to deal with women who want to be with him, placate both his secretary and his estranged wife, cope with a more than slightly crazed young playwright, and overcome an impending mid-life crisis. The story has been described by Coward as 'a series of semi-autobiographical pyrotechnics'. (more...)

BWW Review: Sweet Loving RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER THE MUSICAL Stops at Dolby
by Don Grigware - Dec 27, 2016

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer was immortalized in the 60s TV classic of the same name and is now full-blown in an onstage touring musical called Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer The Musical. It follows the film almost to the letter with a bevy of animal characters, elves and of course, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus. It was Mrs. Donner who gave birth to Rudolph, and to protect him from the world, his family covered up his nose... but to no avail. Now with its two-day stop at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Rudolph... is a delight for children with its sugar-coated, infectiously cute little story. (more...)

BWW Review: Cleveland Orchestra Sublime, THE NUTCRACKER Uninspired
by Roy Berko - Dec 2, 2016

When the Cleveland Ballet left this area for San Jose, California, in 2000, it is rumored that the organization was over one-million dollars in debt. Lots of fingers were pointed as to why the deficit existed, but one thing is for sure, there will always be, it the minds of those who saw it, one lasting legacy of Dennis Nahat and his reign as the company's Artistic Director. From its 1979 debut, when it sold out every night of its two-week run, until its escape to the west coast, Nahat's THE NUTCRACKER reigned supreme. (more...)
