BWW Review: THE RED BARN, National Theatre, 17 October 2016
by Marianka Swain - Oct 18, 2016

It was a dark and stormy night. Two couples are caught in a snowstorm on their way back from a party. Three of them arrive at a remote Connecticut farmhouse. One disappears. There's a definite pleasure in this familiar story, immaculately told in David Hare's adaptation of Georges Simenon's novel La Main. The noir thriller tropes are all in place, from femme fatales and gnawing jealousy to paranoia about what lies beneath. (more...)

BWW CD Review: That 70s Show, DISASTER!
by Remy Holzer - Oct 17, 2016

It takes guts to write a parody of 1970s disaster movies. After all, AIRPLANE!, the parody of the AIRPORT series, is one of the most beloved comedies of all time. It also takes guts to write a 1970s jukebox musical. A show you may have heard of called MAMMA MIA! ran for nearly 14 years and 6,000 performances. Nevertheless, into this field of exclamation points flew DISASTER!, a parody of 1970s disaster movies...and a 1970s jukebox musical. The show, co-written by multi-hyphenate Seth Rudetsky (who also plays one of the main roles) and director Jack Plotnick, was perhaps a bit slim for the past Broadway season. Its silliness, specificity, and lack of original songs may have caused it to struggle amid the powerhouse shows surrounding it, and it closed in May after 72 performances. But it did receive some enthusiastic reviews, and in particular acclaim for the breakout performance of Jennifer Simard, who was nominated for a Tony for her performance of a nun with a gambling addiction. (Her big moment in the show, singing 'Never Can Say Goodbye' to a HAWAII FIVE-O-themed slot machine, can be viewed online.) Now Simard will be accompanying the show to London. In the meantime, we have Broadway Records' DISASTER! cast album, which contains 28 (!) songs from the show. (more...)

BWW Review: YERMA, Young Vic, 4 August 2016
by Marianka Swain - Aug 5, 2016

Australian theatre's 'enfant terrible' Simon Stone, whose 2014 version of Ibsen's The Wild Duck at the Barbican memorably starred a live duck, has returned to take on Lorca's 1934 'tragic poem'. If some of the elemental lyricism has been lost in this updating, which trades rural Spain for contemporary London, it's a small price to pay for a raw, searing work that builds to a shattering climax.

Every two years, across the nation, State Thespian Societies hold an All-State Play. This year, the Missouri All-State Play is the greek tragedy Iphigenia: the sad tale of what happened to Agamemnon's family in order for the greek ships to sail to Troy. In January of this year, the Missouri State Thespian Conference was held in Kansas City, Missouri where six members of my troupe auditioned and interviewed for spots in the show--in between running to individual events and workshops. It was the most emotional audition process I have ever been a part of. It was like being on a bullet train that makes frequent turns and trying to walk in a straight line.  (more...)
