by Christina Pandolfi - May 2, 2016

Held at the culturally diverse Symphony Space on the Upper West Side on April 30th 2016, the 6th Edition of the Valentina Kozlova International Ballet Competition showcased a bounty of Prodigal talent in both classical and contemporary dance.

BWW Review: MY NAME IS ASHER LEV Speaks to our Hearts and our Arts at Eternity Playhouse
by Brodie Paparella - May 16, 2016

If there is anything an audience can relate to in contemporary theatre, it is the concept of struggling to forge ahead with one's own individual passions whilst navigating the traditions of the past and the expectations of those who, having grown up in more desperate times, had only such traditions to survive by. Where parents fought to give their children a better life, but don't know how to handle it when they start to take such opportunities. My Name is Asher Lev turns up the dial hard on this theme by setting such conflict in the home of an observant Torah Jewish family, wherein the titular character is awakened with a Prodigal gift for art. In his father's mind, this gift is from the devil. So Asher's narrative plays out as the ultimate declaration of independence from family, from community, but not perhaps from faith. (more...)

A dangerous organized crime boss, however, wants the Gravedigger dead. 'Gravedigger isn't just a crime drama or a slasher tale.

BWW Review: LA FAMILIA PERATEDES, Based on Lorca's 'The House of Bernarda Alba'
by BWW Staff - Mar 13, 2016

Family is a serious matter for Filipinos; it's something personal, sensitive, and private. To have it as a central theme for a play is seldom traversed, and if so, it's done with prudence. In the current restaging of Victorio Concepcion's LA FAMILIA PERATEDES, a play in Tagalog based on Federico Garcia Lorca's 'La Casa de Bernarda Alba,' the production is worth a visit simply because of its familial theme that's seldom tackled. It also proves to be a timely work that exposes its audiences to domestic lives normally concealed because of destructive personal pride. (more...)

BWW Review: The Bible Preaches, But GODSPELL Asks
by BWW Staff - Jun 22, 2016

If you're expecting to find your corner of the sky, you will not. Just because this is a Stephen Schwartz musical does not mean there will be someone painting with all the colors of the wind, nor will there be any gravity-defying witches, nor a hunchback. Yes, this is a Bible story, but do not expect Moses to be there even if you believe. And yes, there could be ever, ever after but there are no singing animals present. This is simply MusicArtes Inc.'s production of GODSPELL. (more...)
