Critic's Choice: Best of Maine 2016
by Carla Maria Verdino-SŁllwold - Nov 29, 2016

Having had the Privilege to serve as Broadway World's Maine Editor for more than three years now, I can say with pride that the state, though remote as it may seem from the epicenter of the theatre world, Broadway, is blessed to be home to so many thriving theatre companies who produce exciting, vibrant seasons. As I compiled my list for 2016 with many familiar names, I was also struck by the extraordinary consistency of excellence these companies maintain. Here are my personal choices of the best in Maine, grouped by theatre and show. (more...)

Guest Blog: Composer Luke Bateman on MR POPPER'S PENGUINS
by Guest Blog: Luke Bateman - Nov 24, 2016

I like to write tunes. By tunes I mean real hummable melodies. Some people scoff at this as if 'that's easy' or 'not exactly art', but I thoroughly disagree. Lots of songwriters write both music and lyrics, and I've given lyrics a go, but I like to stick to the music. In my opinion, my job is to serve a lyric. A great melody can carry a poor lyric, but a good lyric sure as hell ain't gonna carry a bad tune. When you combine both a great lyric and a great melody then you've hit the jackpot. (more...)

Guest Blog: Ciaran McConville On THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS at Rose Theatre Kingston
by Guest Blog: Ciaran McConville - Nov 21, 2016

Adapting The Wind in the Willows for the stage has been such a circuitous and unexpected process. I reread the book last Christmas and understood, but couldn't define, its enduring appeal. As a novel, it's gloriously messy - at times conventional and at others surprisingly radical. Kenneth Grahame switches genres mid-chapter, offers no consistency on the physics of his fictional world, and his views on class, sex and gender all feel stuffy by today's standards. (more...)

BWW Review: Unique and Hilarious JAMES FRANCO AND ME At Epic Theatre Company
by Andria Tieman - Nov 21, 2016

James Franco and Me is an idea that could only have come from the brain of Kevin Broccoli.  Set in a hospital waiting room as the protagonist waits for his father to die, this play becomes a kind of meta commentary on life, celebrity, loss, failure and friendship.  Featuring 13 different actors as James Franco with each production completely unrehearsed, there's almost a sinister 'what if it all goes wrong' feeling that the audience has.  That also adds to the drama in a completely unexpected way, especially when the viewer gets completely wrapped up in the performances and then reminds herself that these two people, on this night, have never done this before, and it seems seamless.  One of the things that still gives me chills is the thought that when you're viewing a live production, the performers and the audience are sharing a moment that no one else will ever get to experience.  Broccoli has blown that up into 13 moments, and it's hard to not feel a little frustrated to have missed out on 12 of those.

BWW Review: What it Means to Live with Origin Theatre Company's POISON
by Kristen Morale - Nov 19, 2016

Poison brings two people together in a cemetery to discuss the desecration and movement of their son's grave, as part of the cemetery's plan to expand. In a style that is incredibly that of Waiting for Godot, this divorced couple comes together and must wait for the person who will come speak to them about their son's grave; of course he doesn't show up. Not having seen or heard from one another in ten long years, they awkwardly await the man that is to save them from their discomfort of being reunited; when he never arrives, they begin to talk about the past.
