BWW Review: Sleight-Of-Hand Trickster Helder Guimaraes is Aces in VERSO

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

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. (more...)
