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!

The Heart of Things by Giles Cole runs at Jermyn Street Theatre from 10 March to 4 April.

'The Heart of Things has many beautiful and delicate shades of grey', he says and then, with a laugh, adds, 'but not 50. It's definitely got more than 50. At my stage of life, I understand it more than I care to admit. The play explores how to be happy through the disappointment of middle age'. (more...)

by haydn haring - Mar 19, 2015

There are hidden agendas, passionate poets and scandalous undergarments galore in Charleston Stage Company's production of THE UNDERPANTS, running now through March 22! Originally titled 'Die Hose' and written by Carl Sternheim in the early 20th Century, this version has been adapted by funny-man Steve Martin for a modern audience. At first I was disenchanted by the title, but considering that we aren't talking about our 21st century ideas of lingerie and that the 'pants' in question are more like pantaloons, I was able to move on from that.

Beware the Ides of March with 15 Shakespeare ShowtunesBeware the Ides of March with 15 Shakespeare Showtunes

'If music be the food of love, play on.' Even before the invention of the musical comedy (more on that later), William Shakespeare knew the importance of music in telling stories on stage. For our March feature, my colleague Jeff Walker and I thought that instead of marking the Ides of March with songs about murder, betrayal, and fate, we would focus on the synergy between showtunes and Shakespeare.

Every good BREAKING BAD fan knows that a lot happens between the end of last week's episode (remember, when all those cops came knocking at his door) and when we meet him as Saul's right-hand-man in Albuquerque.

BWW Reviews: GIRL ON THE EDGE Is A Poignant Tribute to the Power of Caring and the Possibility of RedemptionBWW Reviews: GIRL ON THE EDGE Is A Poignant Tribute to the Power of Caring and the Possibility of Redemption
by Herbert Paine - Feb 23, 2015

The line between hope and despair is thread-thin. For an adolescent girl, tumbling in a tailspin of woes, the pathway to salvation may be as seemingly simple but as frustratingly elusive as parental Patience and caring, a strategic retreat to a place called Maheo, peer support, and maybe even a horse named Betsy Moo. It may take a village to save a kid, but ultimately the kid needs to choose life. Girl on the Edge, directed by Jay Silverman and making its world debut at the Sedona International Film Festival on February 28th, tells the story of 15-year old Hannah Green, brilliantly portrayed by Taylor Spreitler, and her journey from victimhood to self-discovery.
