Fads come and go, and aesthetic poetry is all the rage in town these days, especially among the maidens who have all become groupies of the self-styled poet Reginald Bunthorne - to the dismay of their macho military boyfriends. All but Patience, the virtuous village milkmaid who claims to have never loved anyone. She doesn't care for poetry much either, and, as it turns out, neither does Bunthorne! And while Bunthorne is infatuated with Patience, she falls for her childhood crush Archibald Grosvenor, another famous aesthete who attracts women even faster than Bunthorne. The rigid military men attempt to win back their ladies by comically attempting to be willowy poets, but, when exasperated Bunthorne challenges Grosvenor to give up the current aesthetic craze, he does so willingly - and everything backfires. Being common becomes the new celebrity, and all the ladies choose their old sweethearts, including Patience - proving after all, that every generation has its own temporary insanity!

Fitness on the Go Expands into Harbourfront, Liberty Village and City Place Communities
by BWW News Desk - Aug 27, 2014

When Jagger was 20 years old and at university, he remembers getting a call from his mother; one that he credits as one of the most memorable phone calls he has ever received. His mom had news that she could set him up with a summer job; one working at a camp supporting people with disabilities. Jagger took that job, and he has now spent the past 22 year working with the disabled. Throughout these past two decades, he also worked in school boards, employment programs and youth homeless shelters. He is grateful for these experiences, as they have taught him the most basic and purest values in life: Patience, loyalty, innocence, compassion and finally, living in the presence of these beautiful, inspiring souls, Jagger kept his spirit young at heart. He genuinely believes that it is our responsibility to make a difference in the world. Last year he was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Channel's show 'Life Story Project;' where he brought four of his special friends with him to take part in a conversation about loyalty. (more...)

BWW Reviews: dell'Arte Opera Ensemble's MACBETH is Atmospheric and Intimate

BWW Recap: OUTLANDER Delivers Witches and Redcoats and Kilts, Oh My!
by Kara McCoy - Aug 12, 2014

Something very exciting is happening on today's small screens. The adult fantasy is becoming an actual thing-and a popular one at that. In a world where 'Game of Thrones' not only exists, but actually thrives on cable TV, Ronald D. Moore's 'Outlander' has all the potential to become another hit, and after the series premiere, I predict it probably will. Which isn't to say that that the new Starz series should be compared with the HBO smash. Both may have originally begun as sweeping epics stretching across thousands of pages of thick-spined behemoths before making it to the screen (the novel Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon, is the first of currently eight books upon which the new series is based), but the similarities end there. 'Game of Thrones' has the vast imaginary land of Westeros. Knights in shining armor. Oh yeah, and dragons. 'Outlander' has Inverness. Burly Scotsmen in tartan kilts. And no dragons. So I repeat, this is not 'Game of Thrones,' but, as it turns out, that's just fine. If the series premiere proved anything, it's that 'Outlander' doesn't need to compete with 'Game of Thrones.' It's more than capable of standing on its own two feet. Plus it has time travel. And time travel is pretty cool. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Nancy E. Carroll is Worth the Journey to 4000 MILES at Gloucester Stage Company
by Nancy Grossman - Aug 10, 2014

Playwright Amy Herzog's 4000 MILES is a slice-of-life drama that observes a month in the relationship between a 91-year old grandmother (Nancy E. Carroll) and her 21-year old grandson Leo (Tom Rash) who drops in on her in the middle of the night at the end of a harrowing cross-country bicycle trip. The reason for the visit is a mystery, which is oh-so-gradually revealed, but the story doesn't cover much territory between point A and point B. Director Eric C. Engel grasps the timing necessary to bring out the play's humor and Carroll is a master of delivering a very funny line with a deadpan expression. (more...)
