BWW Reviews: MICHELE LEE's First LA Cabaret a Smash at CatalinaBWW Reviews: MICHELE LEE's First LA Cabaret a Smash at Catalina
by Don Grigware - May 19, 2015

On Sunday May 17 at Catalina Jazz Club renowned actress/singer Michele Lee made her Los Angeles cabaret debut. Why has it taken this long? She takes her one-woman show Catch the Light on the road regularly and recently played 54 Below in NYC, but has never played a club in her hometown of LA. Well, it's high time, and the packed house agreed as the four-piece orchestra played the Beatles' 'Michelle, my belle...' as Lee was introduced to thunderous applause. She made her way through the audience singing the powerhouse 'Feeling Good', and with a combination of incredible drive and energy, an uber strong vocal style and sheer sauciness and personal sass, Lee's conquest of the room was guaranteed. Looking fabulous in black satin and sequins, she next essayed 'Nobody Does It Like Me' from her Broadway hit Seesaw. In the show she playe (more...)

by Andrew White - May 11, 2015

Under the direction of Joel David Santner (who will shortly be moving to California for film school, a great loss to the DC area) the company has proven yet again that when viewed with fresh eyes, the early First Quarto version of 'Hamlet' is a limitless source of inspiration for artists and audiences alike.  Although the company pulls its aesthetic punches by inviting a few guys to join the cast (including Marcus Kyd in the title role), the performance is of a dependable, high quality that makes this a rare, intimate view of the Bard's work.

by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Mar 30, 2015

Portland Players has mounted a sensitive and thought-provoking production of Tom Griffin's 1988 play, Boys Next Door, about four colorful residents of a group communal home and their social worker. Griffin's work deals perceptively and sympathetically with the limitations and hopes of his characters, their skewed realities and their often hilarious interactions. In the person of Jack, the burned-out, yet compassionate counselor, the playwright is able to help the audience gain insight into the world of these mentally challenged adults and to appreciate their humanity.

BWW Feature: Broadway Knows how to Celebrate Birthdays; 10 Birthday Showtunes!BWW Feature: Broadway Knows how to Celebrate Birthdays; 10 Birthday Showtunes!
by Matt Tamanini - Jun 29, 2015

My birthday this year took on extra significance, as the Supreme Court of the United States selected that day to rule that all people had an equal and unalienable right to marry whomever they wanted, regardless of gender. While normally a day to indulge in extreme selfishness, I am quite pleased to cede the importance of June 26th from a celebration of my birth to that of love and compassion for all people. Hopefully Derek Jeter, Ariana Grande, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, and Chris O'Donnell are all on board as well. Despite long considering myself a LGBTQ ally, I am now going to turn this feature back to being about my birthday (because I already had the songs chosen before SCOTUS ruled). So, this month, I am taking over sole duties that I normally share with Jeff Walker, and composing a list of 10 showtunes all about births and birthdays. Feel free to chime in on Twitter (@BWWMatt) or in the comments below with any others you would like to add to the list. (more...)

BWW Reviews: SDT's Moving DOG SEES GODBWW Reviews: SDT's Moving DOG SEES GOD
by Chris Gibson - Jun 17, 2015

With the complete commercialization (a score of TV commercials, a new movie coming out, etc.) of Charles Schulz's creation, Peanuts, it seems only fitting that there should be some kind of satirical look at these classic characters. I'm not convinced that Bert V. Royal's script for DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD is completely successful at offering us a look at the teenage version of them, but it does tell a very poignant and moving story amidst a barrage of debauchery and unexpected behavior. I'm just not sure this story couldn't have been told just as effectively without them as reference points, but it does make the proceedings more interesting, to say the least. Stray Dog Theatre's current production makes the most of this uneven work by giving us committed performances that overcome their shallow stereotypes to actually make us feel true emotion. It's a surprising response that I was not prepared for. Go see this show and experience something much more thoughtful than what was, perhaps, intended. (more...)

VICTOR/VICTORIA's gender-bending exploration of sexual identity and orientation may have seemed fresh, even daring, in 1982, but by the time it hit Broadway in 1995 it was already a bit tame. Today in a 20th anniversary production at Maine's Ogunquit Playhouse, it feels downright quaint when compared to the courage of Caitlyn Jenner and the recent Supreme Court ruling finally making Marriage Equality the law of the land.

Prize Winning Journalist Ron Argo Promotes 1960's Era Civil Rights Historical ThrillerPrize Winning Journalist Ron Argo Promotes 1960's Era Civil Rights Historical Thriller
by BWW News Desk - Jul 10, 2015

The author returns to his childhood in this fictional account and takes readers into the heart of an Alabama town held captive by the blind hatred of the KKK. 'A profound and heartbreakingly real' [Kirkus] novel. The teenage narrator breathes life into that violent setting and pays homage to the tragedies and hardships of both black and white Southerners trying to thrive in a wicked, segregationist town. Young Sonny Poe is trapped in a dead-end life of poverty and prejudice. Horrified after witnessing a lynching in the midnight woods, Sonny turns shy of anyone he suspects is a Klansman; soon he meets and befriends a progressive doctor with a troubled past and a crusading spirit who's trying to help end abuse against the local community of Negroes. The headstrong teenager commits himself to 'Doctor Joe' and his cause even as both suffer betrayals, beatings, arrest and finally exile in a story that can only end in tragedyand hope. This is a story of immense tension that pulsates with violence, love, betrayal and humor as it rushes through the forebodingness of one of America's most pressing historical moments toward a shocking climax. The Civil Rights Movement forms the backbone of 'The Sum of His Worth,' but its strength comes from the voice of its young narrator and its strongest theme lies in the caveats of moral reckoning in a 'free' society. Praise for 'The Sum of His Worth': 'Argo successfully creates a profound, multilayered tapestry that's full of nuance. [His] first-person perspective creates a fragile aura around the unfolding events, and makes them wholly unpredictable ... The authentic dialogue is especially effective; each restrained syllable conveys as much as a five-page Soliloquy ... In a style that's evocative of S.E. Hinton's classic works, with a dash of Daniel Woodrell's Southern grit, [Argo's] novel is an engrossing, heartbreakingly real novel of the South' - Kirkus Reviews 'The Sum of His Worth is a work of serious literary fiction, a coming-of-age story set in a time of national upheaval ... rich in ambiance, descriptive detail, and incident ... My interest never flagged in this convincing, meaningful, and deeply immersive tale.' Ron Terpening, author of Nine Days in October and Tropic of Fear. 'Argo's fiction rings chillingly true.' The San Diego Union 'Ron Argo's depiction of Alabama in the late 50s and early 60s is as unrelenting as a shutter click, the image clear and unforgiving. From grits and okra to the horror show of white robes and burning crosses, the images are spot on perfect. So are the characters ... No reader will fail to come out of it unchanged.' Sharon Skains, author of Waltzing with the Devil 'Jim Crow was interwoven with growing up in small-town Southern life. Argo has captured this nuance ... Here, courage is not a single act, but an ongoing commitment that can separate one from everything that is deeply loved.' Colonel Michael Moran, USMC (Ret) The Sum of His Worth is available in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: The Sum of His Worth By Ron Argo Publisher: Cliff Edge Publishing Published: May 2014 ISBN: 978-0989403573 ASIN: B00A3K3A3G Pages: 376 Genre: Historical Fiction For review copies, author interviews, or more information please contact: Ron Argo Email: argostein (at) cox.net Website: http://www.ronargo.com Ttwitter: https://twitter.com/wordpecker Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ron.argo.3 (more...)

Filled with laughs and anarchic asides, as well as a healthy dose of audience participation, Theatre J has an unqualified hit in Aaron Posner's Life Sucks [Or the Present Ridiculous]. Here we have Posner's thoroughly irreverent, Jewish take on Uncle Vanya, Russian playwright Anton Chekov's classic tale of unrequited love and unfulfilled lives. Forget the theatre history lecture, however; this is pure slapstick at Chekhov's expense and nothing to be intimidated by in the least. (more...)

If you read my previous review, Dear Readers, of SMT's production of "Sweet Charity" you'll know that I already had the occasion this weekend of a show where the leading lady just didn't connect for me. Well, that seems to be a trend as the 5th Avenue Theatre's current production of "Carousel" also had a leading lady who was lacking. There's plenty of good things happening in the show but their Julie Jordan (Laura Griffith) came across as emotionless and stone faced making me wonder why or even if she was falling in love.
