BWW Review: ASSASSINS Musically Explores the Minds of Those Who Attempted to Assassinate the President of the United States
by Shari Barrett - Sep 28, 2016

The great genius of contemporary musical theater, creator of Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and Company, Stephen Sondheim leads audiences on a tuneful revue of presidential assassins and would-be killers from John Wilkes Booth to John Hinckley. The performance is guided by the Proprietor (brilliantly portrayed by Will Shure) who takes you through a most unusual musical history lesson in the form of a carnival game called "Shoot the Prez - Win a Prize" during which the sounds of each era accompany riveting portrayals of history's most impassioned and deranged. Thought-provoking and darkly delightful, ASSASSINS won five Tony Awards in its first revival on Broadway and remains one of the most controversial Broadway musicals ever written. (more...)

BWW Blog: Shelby Ringdahl - Why the New York Regional Premiere of HEATHERS THE MUSICAL Has More Relevance Now Than Ever
by Guest Blogger: WPPAC's HEATHERS - Oct 5, 2016

When you think of Heathers the Musical, you think of croquet, powerhouse vocals, and colorful blazers. You think of scrunchies, high waisted jeans, and all things 80's. Let me preface this post by saying the show is filled with moments that will have you falling over laughing, brilliant performances by an insanely talented cast of 22, and a creative team made up of the best of the best. It's definitely a show you don't want to miss, specifically because beneath it all is a message for the masses. While some might say it's easy to get distracted by its twisted plot and songs about male genitalia, the overarching theme of the musical shows the true impact we as humans have on one another. In this show, we see just how evil humans can actually be to one another, and how we are called to be soooooooo much better than this.  With all the hate going on in the world right now, it is proven that we, as humans, can be absolutely brutal to one another. We will tear each other down to the bone just to make ourselves feel better (look at the presidential election, for example). But this show hones in on the affects that words and actions can have on the minds of others…especially young people. (more...)

BWW Interview: Isa Briones of EVITA at Cabrillo Music Theatre
by Cary Ginell - Oct 20, 2016

If you have the opportunity to see Cabrillo Music Theatre's splendid production of Evita this weekend, you will no doubt be drawn to the electrifying performances by its stars, Cassandra Murphy, as Eva Peron, and Marc Ginsburg, as Che (profiled in our October 4 story - ). But there is another, younger, performer who we predict will be a big star, whether it is on the stage, in films, or on television. Her name is Isa Briones. Isa, who is just 17, is a high school senior who comes out of the ensemble to play the part of Argentinean dictator Juan Peron's unnamed mistress, who gets shooed out of the president's palace by Eva and sings the lament, 'Another Suitcase in Another Hall.' It is one of the most quietly exquisite moments in the entire musical. Prior to playing in Evita, Isa was astonishing in Pico Playhouse's production of Next to Normal, in which she played the part of confused teen Natalie Goodman. We had a chance to visit with Isa, and found out that not only is she no novice in the world of performing, she has a perceptive and mature perspective on performing and working within a character in a musical. VCOS: Isa, when I looked at your website and checked out your credits, I was stunned by all the things you've done and that you are still only Seventeen. It helps when your parents are in show business, too, doesn't it? (more...)

BWW Review: Don't Cry for Cabrillo's Must See EVITA
by Don Grigware - Oct 17, 2016

Tim Rice's & Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita has had a thirty-eight year international love affair with the public since it  premiered in 1978 in London and in 1979 on Broadway. The newest revival in regional theatre is currently at Cabrillo in Thousand Oaks until October 23 only. An operetta based on Eva Duarte Peron and husband Juan Peron of Argentina, the story documents the rise to power of a simple peasant girl to the rank - almost - of Vice-President of her country. I say almost because she became too ill to accept the nomination in 1951 and passed into immortality in 1952 after a seven year reign as First Lady of Argentina, which began in 1946. Evita: criminal or saint? has been the topic of books and documentaries. Eva (more...)
