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 Review: PATIENCE & SARAH Shines Light on Women in Love in 19th-Century New England
by Richard Sasanow - Jun 28, 2016

Patience & SARAH—at least in the production of this chamber opera seen this past week at the Players Theatre in Greenwich Village, as part of the New York Opera Fest and 18 years after its premiere at Lincoln Center Festival—is a beautiful but somewhat lopsided affair. While it tells of the love shared by the women of the title, despite the objections and confusion of their families—Patience is educated, wealthy and a painter, Sarah's a poor, illiterate farmer--it seems really to be the story of Sarah.

BWW Review: A.D. Players' LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL Is the Theatrical Equivalent to Curling Up With a Good Book
by Natalie de la Garza - Jun 24, 2016

LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL is quite the curiosity -- a musical that isn't particularly enhanced or defined by its music. But though the music may be mostly forgettable, the voices in the A.D. Players' production are not. Neither are the performances. It is the cast that ultimately elevates this admittedly simplistic but feel-good show to one of the must-sees of the summer. (more...)

An exceptional recovery 'how to guide' for friends and family who are baffled by the behaviors, antics, and thinking of the addicted one. Their Patience, tolerance, and love are depleted quickly. Eventually, their empathy and compassion exhausted, they say the inevitable, 'He will just have to hit bottom,' as they shake their heads and walk away. The new book 'Reclaiming Your Addicted Brain' maps the return journey from addict land for the addict. Teaching the 'how' of leaving thinking errors behind. Written around the recovery story of one man from alcohol and sex addiction, clinical notes, and comments appear throughout the story helping the reader to understand this baffling disease. Addicts are able to see what they themselves do when hearing others' testimony. Reading George's (the book's addicted character) story and misadventures creates 'aha' moments of understanding that can open the eyes of addicts and the doors to recovery. Hearing other addicts stories can be a powerful tool in one's recovery and make an addict feel less alone and more willing to receive help. Like many popular authors, Stark and Morse are making use of the exceptional promoting services for writers to market their books. Launched in May 2013, Author, Catherine Townsend-Lyon of Lyon Book Promotions has rapidly become a leading source to help new authors learn how to promote and market their books. (more...)

by Richard Sasanow - Jun 21, 2016

Although the solstice doesn't officially appear for another week or so, the summer opera clock is already ticking. There's a plethora of performances going on all over New York City, in addition to interesting, entertaining and fascinating productions that are just a hop, skip and jump away. Among them: Lincoln Center's Lincoln Center Festival and Mostly Mozart and On Site Opera's West Village venue, to the more bucolic realms of Bard SummerScape in Dutchess County (NY) for Mascagni and Caramoor in Katonah (NY) for Rossini and Beethoven.

BWW Review: APT'S DEATH OF A SALESMAN Foreshadows Demise of the American Dream
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Jun 20, 2016

Arthur Miller's 1949 Pulitzer Prize winning play Death of a Salesman might be considered by critics the most influential play of the 20th century. American Players Theatre presents a visceral, gut-wrenching production at the Up the Hill Theatre, the scenery drenched in depression glass colored green.: A green bedspread on a tarnished brass bed, a green ice box stands behind a humble green table and four chairs. Envisioned by Scenic Designer Michael Ganio, did he and veteran Director Kenneth Albers infer Willy Loman suffer from depression, was green with envy for his his brother Ben and friend Charley? Or did this particular hue represent the institutional green characterizing hospitals and mental asylums in the '40's and '50's symbolizing the breakdown between a person's memory and reality that Willy and his family struggle with?

BWW Blog: Alyssa Sileo - Funny Thing: What It Means To Be a Thespian, or At Least To Me
by Guest Blogger: Alyssa Sileo - Jun 20, 2016

This is a craft of coexistent community and individuality, which conglomerates all previously-existent tints, genres, and attitudes into a tellable community of players. At any moment--subject to shifts and additions to the catalogue. These expansions may prove to be time-eaters or talent-greeters; projects can unveil one's purpose or frighten them into submission and subsequent retreating from the arts. (more...)

'Simone Leigh: The Waiting Room' Residency & Exhibition to Open This Month at New Museum
by BWW News Desk - Jun 15, 2016

In her work, Simone Leigh (b. 1968, Chicago, IL) demands that the concerns, roles, and rights of women of color be recognized as central, rather than pushed to the margins. Taking into account a history of social inequality that has necessitated community-organized care, traditionally provided by women, “Simone Leigh: The Waiting Room” considers the possibilities of disobedience, desire, and self-determination as they manifest in resistance to an imposed state of deferral and debasement.

She lived a relatively spoiled life in nineteenth century France until Thérèse, despite heavy opposition, became a nun at age 15 and dedicated herself to the simplicity of service.
