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!

BWW Reviews: First Stage Presents Poignant Adaptation of Spinelli's STARGIRLBWW Reviews: First Stage Presents Poignant Adaptation of Spinelli's STARGIRL
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Jan 20, 2015

Theater for Young Audiences (TYA) might be brushed aside, dismissed by adults who give this professional genre less significance. First Stage proves this preconception about TYA untrue when they opened an adaptation of Jerry Spinelli's 2002 New York Times bestselling novel Stargirl in the Todd Wehr Theater January 18. Award winning playwright Y York adapted the crossover novel read by adults and youth alike into a poignant character driven script filled with humor that delves into the difficulties growing up at 16 in high school. An age when remaining true to an independent personality with a belief in kindness and nonconformity suffers under peer pressure. (more...)

'This play is difficult to talk about. On purpose," is how director Brenda DeVita's note in the playbill for her newest production begins. DeVita's brevity in her directorial note is a tribute to the sensitive nature of The Other Place as well as a testament to her talent as a director. The Other Place is a 2013 Broadway triumph and is now, too, a triumph of Madison's own Forward Theater Company. (more...)

by Samantha Reichstein - Jan 11, 2015

Opening with a congratulatory dinner for Hannah's soon-to-be Iowa send-off, the same uncomfortable vibes from her parents form around the table, though this time Hannah handles it with a newfound poise and control. Wondering if all it took was an acceptance letter to prove herself to the world, we can't help but feel happy seeing Hannah content and collected. Of course Adam just has to show up late, proving from his thirty-second scene that change is far from him. Still making Hannah's parents uncomfortable, still bitching about his recent career choice of acting, and still unable to show his true feelings about really anything dealing with Hannah's success.

BWW Recap: SURVIVOR- BLOOD VS WATER 12/3; Full Results!BWW Recap: SURVIVOR- BLOOD VS WATER 12/3; Full Results!
by Kara McCoy - Dec 3, 2014

Brace yourselves, fellow reality TV junkies. Tonight's SURVIVOR is supersized, with two episodes airing back to back. That's double the challenges, double the backstabbing, and double the ridiculous hashtags. Double. The. Drama. Really. 'Tensions are running high' and 'Patience is running low' in Huyopaville, which I guess is to be expected at this point of the game. With just eight contestants left on the island, the stakes are only getting higher, and the million dollars is only getting closer. It's time to be a little cutthroat. A little conniving. Plus being stuck with the same people week after week probably just gets annoying. It's only natural. Whatever it is, it makes for better TV--am I right?! (*Waits patiently for a high-five.*) (more...)

Combining acrobatics with choreography (by Chet Walker) that recalls Bob Fosse's original work on the show, the current touring company of PIPPIN(book by Roger O. Hirson with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz) at the Peabody Opera House provides quite an enjoyable spectacle. There's a circus-like quality (courtesy of Gypsy Singer) to this presentation that's unexpected, and even a bit magical, making it more suitable for the younger set than some versions, even though most of its sexier elements are still firmly intact. It's certainly well worthy of your time and attention. (more...)
