Summer Stages: BWW's Top Summer Picks for SeattleSummer Stages: BWW's Top Summer Picks for Seattle
by Jay Irwin - May 30, 2015

With the sun out more and more (amidst all the rain, of course) the theatrical choices in the area tend to dwindle a bit. But not to worry, there's still Plenty to take in. From Shakespeare to Schwartz, greasers to gay baseball players, classics to camp and Karen Carpenter there's something for everyone. After you spend your day in the sun check out what's happening indoors (or in some cases combine the sun and the shows). (more...)

Ridgefield Playhouse to Welcome Charles Esten & Clare Bowen, 6/26Ridgefield Playhouse to Welcome Charles Esten & Clare Bowen, 6/26
by BWW News Desk - May 28, 2015

Fans will be able to see ABC's 'Nashville' stars LIVE at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, June 26, at 8 p.m. Actors Charles Esten and Clare Bowen have Plenty of experience making music on the stage and screen, Esten had a long-running stint at the start of his career playing Buddy Holly in the West End, while Bowen appeared in Spring Awakening in her native Australia. So it's no coincidence that they play singer-songwriters on the nighttime soap about the lives and loves of country musicians. Esten and Bowen have been writing and singing for a long time, and, thanks to the launching pad that 'Nashville' has provided, they've been scoring slots at the Stagecoach festival and opening gigs for artists such as Alan Jackson and Dierks Bentley. The Ancient Mariner will make it a great night out by pouring a complimentary glass of wine with dinner before the show when tickets are presented. This event is part of the Northeast Builders LLC Country Series with media sponsor Country 92.5fm. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Sam Bass Presents Unnerving, Spectacularly Performed NEVER THE SINNERBWW Reviews: Sam Bass Presents Unnerving, Spectacularly Performed NEVER THE SINNER
by Jeff Davis - May 26, 2015

The production has several aces up its sleeve, the first being John Logan's script. Logan-the scribe behind the plays Red and I'll Eat You Last, films Gladiator, The Aviator, Sweeney Todd, Hugo, and Skyfall, and the T.V. show Penny Dreadful-is easily one of the greatest contemporary writers in any medium. His gift for creating edge-of-your-seat pacing, engrossing and flawed characters, and witty dialogue shows through in Never the Sinner, Logan's 1985 work and first play. (more...)
