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 Blog: Dayana Sanchez - Grow Up, Artist!
by Guest Blogger: Dayana Sanchez - Sep 9, 2016

It's the last year of your undergrad and the pressure to know what you will be doing in a few months is crazy. And by this time you wear your cap and gown, you may still be unsure of where your life will lead. However, all you know is what you have studied and hope that your bachelor degree was worth that student loan you probably begged your parents your to sign. And of course, your bachelor degree doesn't mean anything without a job. It's a piece of paper and with a title without the value. It's an unfortunate reality but having a job after college doesn't always happen. So what in the world do you do, when you are unsure… (more...)

BWW Review: MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM Offers a Searing Look at a Tension-Filled Recording Session
by Shari Barrett - Sep 15, 2016

Like all of August Wilson's plays, this one contains more dialogue than perhaps is needed, with the first act seemingly bogged down at times as you listen to four musicians (Damon Gupton as Cutler, Glynn Turman as Toledo, Keith David as Slow Dawg, Jason Dirden as Levee) stuck in a rehearsal room as they banter about life, women, music, and a much-loved pair of new shoes. It's a shame these brilliant musicians were not allowed to share their skills in more than just one song during the show as they rocked the house. Make no mistake; this play is NOT a musical but a hard-hitting drama about the inequities of life. (more...)
