BWW Review: Fugitive Kind Theater Soars with its World Premiere Fantasy SHINE DARKLY, ILLYRIA
by Shari Barrett - May 8, 2016

Fugitive Kind Theater is the presenting company, which for eleven years has engaged in creating boundary-breaking shows. This production takes the group to new heights, setting the story in what appears to be a fantasy circus world on the island of Illyria where anything goes and people are allowed to be whoever and whatever they want to be. It's a small society, but one most of us could certainly enjoy living in given the lack of stress and having any real work to do. But of course, such an idyllic world cannot last, and it is the dark side of Illyria we visit in SHINE DARKLY, ILLYRIA. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - May 26, 2016

Drawn from its own archive and that of the American Craft Council, the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) presents Eye for Design, an exhibition that explores the unique graphic identity created by the Museum (then the Museum of Contemporary Crafts) in the 1960s and 1970s through its imaginatively designed exhibition catalogues and related ephemera. As the field of graphic design became increasingly corporate driven, the designers featured in this exhibition-including Emil Antonucci, John J. Reiss, Sam Richardson, and Linda Hinrichs-dared to break graphic conventions and captured the spirit of the Museum with hand-drawn illustrations, playful use of typography, vibrant color, fresh design, and inventive adaption of the catalogue form.

BWW Blog: Lily Erb - I Was a Cow
by Guest Blogger: Lily Erb - Apr 28, 2016

There comes a time in every young actor's life where they're cast in a challenging role. Whether the part is physically demanding, musically difficult, or just a strange role to play, all actors have been there at some point or another. When most people recall their hardest roles, it's a fond experience. Maybe they were a lead dancer in Anything Goes, and they hadn't taken one tap lesson in their life. Maybe they were Princess Fiona in Shrek the Musical, and they had to paint themselves green in between scenes. Maybe they were Cinderella in Into the Woods, and they had to fall flat on their face every other scene. What was my hardest role? I was the front end of a cow. (more...)

BWW Dance Review: CIRCO DE LA LUNA a Flair of España and Cirque Intertwined
by Marsha Volgyi - Apr 27, 2016

Downtown at Baruch Performing Arts Center on April 21, 2016, Circo de la Luna performed Circo en Tres Actos. A small setting for this cutting-edge collaboration. As in any theatrical cirque-like production, there are a myriad of characters, which can be confusing. However, Circo de la Luna's storyline was concise and quirky to relate to the  life of their protagonist living in the Big Apple. Mark, the main character, struggles with fitting into a city with all the diversity of personalities, crowds, and cramped quarters. He encounters a package that opens his imagination and with inspiration. That's when our España and cirque performers appear. Mark later on envisions more characters to draw him into his moonstruck environment. To conclude the show, there was conflict from the Boeadoras of the metaphorical emotions encompassing the physical and emotional world. Yet with all that ensued Mark's chaotic city hasn't changed, but he has within. (more...)

BWW Review: Nautilus Music-Theater Reinvents the World's Longest Running Musical THE FANTASTICKS with Atypical Casting and an Intimate Staging
by Jill Schafer - Apr 11, 2016

It may be spring (almost) outside, but inside Nautilus Music-Theater's tiny studio space in Lowertown St. Paul, it's most definitely September. The kind of September 'where grass is green and grain is yellow,' and 'no one weeps except the willow.' A lovely hopeful youthful September that slowly fades into a wiser, darker, and nostalgic December. While Nautilus is primarily dedicated to developing new works of music-theater, with their newest full production, they are presenting a new take on the longest running musical in the world. 56 years ago, THE FANTASTICKS was just the kind of piece that Nautilus would have developed, supported, and produced - an inventive piece of music-theater storytelling that pushes the envelope of what the genre can do. While that glow of newness and inventiveness has somewhat faded over the years, Nautilus is bringing it back in a new way with age-conscious and gender-conscious casting, and by presenting the piece as it originally was - in an intimate small-scale setting that allows the simple beauty and humor of the piece to shine. With limited seating and only 12 performances, make plans soon for this rare opportunity to see this classic musical performed by some of the Twin Cities best theater artists up close and personal.

by Christi Esterle - Apr 10, 2016

Is there any staple of children's literature more existentially tragic than Peter Pan? Beneath the tale of the eternal boy who flies with faeries and battles with pirates lies a story about the bittersweet inevitability of growing old, and of a child destined to be forever left behind by a world that moves on without him. This underlying sadness is a key part of the fascination J.M. Barrie's work holds over the generations, and one which holds true in Rick Elice's play Peter and the Starcatcher. (more...)
