BWW Previews: AURORA CHILDREN'S PLAYHOUSE SUMMER EDITION at Aurora Theatre
by Amy Zipperer - May 15, 2017

It's a Saturday morning, and I'm at the Aurora Children's Playhouse at Aurora Theatre.  We're waiting for Wendy Bennett's interactive performance of Cinderella to begin.  That exciting electricity of patrons eagerly anticipating a show dances in the air.  Most of this morning's patrons are between the ages of 4 and 10.  And many are dressed like Princesses.  I've counted two Jasmines, three Cinderellas, and a Belle.  Wendy Bennett, bouncy and bright, walks onto the stage and comments excitedly on the number of Princesses in the audience.  One little girl in a white summer dress pops up from her chair and says, 'Look at me.'  Another little girl in the back who's wearing a blue tulle ballerina skirt won't be outdone.  She stands on her chair and shouts, 'Look at me!'  And those exchanges are perfectly indicative of the spirit of this fun presentation where, at any moment, children might become pumpkins or white mice or even Prince Rupert (who's giving a ball) all while Wendy Bennett sings songs and waltzes with puppets.  It's a morning of sheer delight.  (more...)

BWW Review: Garden Theatre's INTO THE WOODS is their Best Show Yet
by Libby Champion - May 12, 2017

'Anything can happen in the woods.' And in the Garden Theater's production of INTO THE WOODS, many, many things happen there. The Sondheim favorite has been adored by theater-goers the world over since it's opening night in 1987. With its combination of fabled fairytales, witty music, and intricate storyline, it's no wonder this show has enjoyed staying power over the years. But staying power can be dangerous as well - a theater never wants a beloved production to start to feel stale or aged. A theatre-goer may love 'Into the Woods,' but how do you make it fresh and new but still keep that beloved quality to the production? (more...)

BWW Review: Gripping FROZEN at ArtsWest Feels Like a Documentary at Times
by Jay Irwin - Apr 23, 2017

First off, Dear Readers, let me explain that you will see no singing Ice Princesses or wacky snowmen in this show. This particular play called "Frozen", currently playing at ArtsWest, is about as far away from the Disney movie as it could be considering it deals with serial killers. And while the performances are quite powerful and it's a very interesting subject, at times it feels like a lecture on serial killers and other times a drama with some superfluous storylines.

BWW Feature: Mark and Ryan Kleinman, Living the Dream
by Jeanmarie Simpson - Apr 23, 2017

I am incredibly proud of all my kids and Ryan is pursuing his dream as a performer. He has been performing for quite awhile now as a professional and I have had the idea that this would be so since about his Junior year in High School. I have always taken the time to include my kids (when they have shown an interest) into the shows I was doing. Ryan and his older sister, Kaitlynn, were able to be more inundated with it at a young age as I was more active as a professional performer and they got to be backstage and at rehearsal, and often in shows with me. Whenever I was in a show that needed kids, I got them an audition and, since they were talented, often got cast, so we were able to share the stage. Sound of Music, South Pacific, Music Man, Secret Garden, A Christmas Carol, all shows that my kids been able to share with me. (more...)
