by BWW News Desk - Oct 21, 2016

Washington National Opera (WNO) continues its 2016–2017 season with a new production of Gaetano Donizetti's mashup of slapstick comedy and charming romance—The Daughter of the Regiment, November 12–20, 2016, in the Kennedy Center Opera House. The cast is led by superstar tenor Lawrence Brownlee as the hero Tonio and fast-rising soprano Lisette Oropesa, who starred as Susanna earlier this season in WNO's The Marriage of Figaro, as Marie. While the opera is best known for the vocal acrobatics required of its singers, the high-comedy antics of the non-singing role of The Duchess of Krakenthorp often steal the show. On opening night, November 12, 2016, the role of The Duchess will be performed by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her official Washington National Opera stage debut. The brand-new WNO production is directed by acclaimed Broadway director and choreographer Robert Longbottom, and the WNO Orchestra is led by rising conductor Christopher Allen, both in their WNO debuts.

BWW Review: RENT's 20th Anniversary Tour Thrills TPAC Audience on Opening Night in Nashville
by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 19, 2016

It's hard to believe that Jonathan Larson's epic rock musical masterpiece, Rent, debuted on Broadway, making headlines around the world, winning the Pulitzer Prize and bringing a whole new generation of audiences to the theater 20 years ago. Larson who died just prior to the show's 1996 off-Broadway opening didn't live to see the acclaim with which his musical - based upon Puccini's La Boheme - was greeted, but if we believe in such things, we may rest assured that since his untimely demise he has watched over Rent's evolution, which includes the 20th Anniversary production now touring the country in an astounding revival which reaffirms its place among the very best of American musical theater.

BWW Review: SOMEWHERE IN ENGLAND, New Wimbledon Studio, 12 October 2016
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Oct 12, 2016

Somewhere in England is a piece of 1940s war-time nostalgia with a big heart, brought to life in the cosy surroundings of New Wimbledon Studio this week. The show is an escapist and pastoral view of an interesting part of history, when American GIs arrived in England to prepare for the invasion of Normandy. They brought with them nylons, Coca Cola and bags of energy and fun. The appearance of the lively and girl-deprived young Soldiers in the quiet village creates ripples with all the residents; some welcome, some less so. The show tells the story as the GIs settle into village life over the course of an eventful year; falling in love, creating a stir and making life-long friendships. (more...)

BWW Recap: It's Showtime with Honest Abe on TIMELESS
by Courtney Henley - Oct 11, 2016

Last week's premiere of TIMELESS started off the season with a bang. (Ha, see what I did there? Because the Hindenburg blew up?!) This week's journey takes us to Ford's Theater, April 14, 1865.

Although Flynn's motives for wanting to go back and alter these specific events in history is still unclear, last week's premiere showed us that every change Flynn makes, big or small, can dramatically impact the course of history.  (more...)
