BWW Review: SINGIN' IN THE RAIN International Tour 2015BWW Review: SINGIN' IN THE RAIN International Tour 2015
by Rocky Christopher Fajardo - Sep 9, 2015

You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. SINGIN' IN THE RAIN is theatrical proof of how this age-old formula can work wonders. With syrupy and infectious melodies, stunning choreography and visually-stunning sets, this monumentally theatrical homage to the most beloved classics in the Nacio Brown and Arthur Freed canon perfectly fits the bill for a 'Mary J. Blige Pre-Approved' musical- it is uncomplicated, lavish technicolor entertainment--without the drama. (more...)

I was pleased to see many familiar faces last Wednesday at the Alley Theatre's performance of ONE MAN, TWO GUVNORS. It helped set the tone for the comedic and interactive performance that seemed to ask us to leave any egos at the door, relax, and sit back for a night of farcical storytelling and crass side-splitting humor. The show absolutely delivered. (more...)

BWW Review: The Gamm Theatre's THE RANT is Powerful and TimelyBWW Review: The Gamm Theatre's THE RANT is Powerful and Timely
by Andria Tieman - Nov 18, 2015

THE RANT takes place in Brooklyn, NY, not too long ago--that's what the program says. It feels like it could have easily taken place within the past year, month or week. Denise Reeve's son, a black teenager, was shot to death by a police officer on her front porch while she and her husband ate Eskimo Pies inside. At least that's what the audience hears first. From there, the story devolves into different versions of what might be the truth from Ms. Reeves, police officer Charles Simmons, investigator Lila Mahnaz and journalist Alexander Stern. In the end, the story is so twisted and murky with events, intentions and agendas that the actual events become secondary to the perceived situation. (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...)

'The Twelfth Story' at The Annex Theatre reminded me of the Rudyard Kipling Just-So Stories that were read to me at bedtime. Directed by Amy Poisson, the cast of 'The Twelfth Story' was as jubilant as spritely camp counselors.

Clever, sharp and witty, "Emma" the musical is as charismatic as it title character. Creator Paul Gordon took the Jane Austen classic and gave audiences a crisp, well-paced and engaging script with a score that wonderfully serves its characters' acerbic humor and innermost thoughts. Gordon's Soliloquy style and multiple short themes highlight each role, which, when well-cast, sell the show with radiant storytelling. In the case of TheatreWorks Silicon Valley, a four-member orchestra also adds charm. (more...)
