BWW Review: Sleight-Of-Hand Trickster Helder Guimaraes is Aces in VERSO
by Michael Dale - Sep 29, 2016

It takes a certain amount of moxie for a solo performer to begin his Off-Broadway show by looking into the audience and stating 'I am weird.' (more...)

Photo Flash: First Look at Helder Guimaraes in VERSO Off-Broadway
by BWW News Desk - Sep 23, 2016

Helder Guimarães, one of the premier close-up artists of the world, returns to New York City in his all-new show Verso, following the acclaimed sold-out engagement of Nothing to Hide. Intimate and enigmatic, witty and unorthodox, Verso is Helder's most daunting journey into the impossible yet. Bear witness as he pushes the very limits of magic, and challenges just how much you're willing to accept what your eyes assume to be true. BroadwayWorld has a first look at him in action below!

BWW Review: Witness the Impossible with THE ILLUSIONISTS
by Libby Champion - Oct 5, 2016

Magic shows. These two little words spark so many different thoughts, feelings and opinions from people. Some view them as a complete farce and waste of time, while others are completely fascinated by the Sleight of Hand, the disillusionment and the mystery behind it all. I happen to be the latter type of person and have seen my fair share of magic shows, so I really wasn't expecting to see anything new or daring in this particular show. Boy, was I wrong! In THE ILLUSIONISTS the seven different type of magicians promise they will "notice, observe, deduce" in a way never seen before, and they absolutely do not disappoint. (more...)

BWW Review: WARRIOR CLASS: Early Voting Projects a Win
by Nancy Grossman - Oct 25, 2016

Boston premiere of Kenneth Lin's ('House of Cards') "political thriller" at Lyric Stage Company ultimately works because of a trio of fine performances by Steven Barkhimer, Michael Tow, and Jessica Webb, under the taut direction of Dawn M. Simmons. You may have had more than your fill of politics for now, but the cat and mouse game devised by the playwright and the authentic portrayals will keep you guessing until the final blackout.

BWW Review: THE NOSE, Royal Opera House, 20 October 2016
by Alexandra Coghlan - Oct 21, 2016

Composed when Shostakovich was just 21 years old, fresh from the conservatoire and still high on the success of his First Symphony, The Nose is a piece of musical rebellion - a fantasy of abrasive, rule-breaking joie de vivre whose absurd, anarchic rompings and musical shape-shiftings conceal a political switchblade under their brightly-coloured clothes. This is pantomime, certainly, but adult pantomime. Never before staged at the Royal Opera, the piece now makes a belated debut, and in the hands of Australian director Barrie Kosky it looks scarcely less radical now than it would have done back in 1928.

BWW Review: THE ILLUSIONISTS LIVE FROM BROADWAY at The Overture Center
by Scott Rawson - Nov 25, 2016

  As a haze envelopes, The Overture Center for the Arts a drum beat begins, followed shortly by screaming electric guitar licks. The energy in the theater is palpable as dancers move and gyrate across the stage. A curtain drops over a cage suspended far above the stage and nearly immediately falls away to reveal…The Illusionists! (more...)

CABARET: Searing and Sexy Tale for our Times Now Thru July 17
by Linda Hodges - Jun 25, 2016

San Francisco's Orpheum Theatre plays host to the provocative and still darkly daring, Cabaret now through July 17. Set in 1931 Berlin, on the cusp of all that was to come with the rise of the Nazis, the Kander and Ebb musical revolves around the Kit Kat Club and its cast of characters who are determined to ignore the outside world. 'We have no troubles here! Here, life is beautiful,' shouts the garishly made-up emcee. He and the club's performers do their best to convince us that indeed, 'life is a cabaret' and, for a moment in time, it seems to be true. Yet they set aside the warning signs at their own peril. Coming directly from Broadway and originally directed by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, SHNSF's Cabaret is a spectacular Sleight of Hand, giving us sinfully sexy performances even as the real depravity lies in wait like spider outside the doors of the Kit Kat Club.

BWW Review: HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD, Palace Theatre, 27 July 2016
by Marianka Swain - Jul 27, 2016

During the recent Ghostbusters furore, enraged opponents claimed the movie would ruin their childhood. As someone who grew up with the Harry Potter book series - preparing for GCSEs while the characters stressed over O.W.L.s - I can happily declare that this affectionate, spellbinding work only enhances that treasured experience. It's both nostalgic and thrillingly new, a smartly crafted love letter to J.K. Rowling's invention and to theatre itself. (more...)

BWW Review: IMPOSSIBLE, Noël Coward Theatre, 13 July 2016
by Natalie Crofts - Jul 14, 2016

There's something rather nostalgic about watching a magic show in the heart of London, where the prestigious Magic Circle was first established in 1905. Playing at the Noel Coward Theatre until 27 August, Impossible, presented by Jamie Hendry and Gavin Kalin Productions, celebrates an old-fashioned, over-exaggerated sense of wizardry through a series of special stunts, illusions and tricks that successfully evoke feelings of child-like wonder.
