BWW Review: OUT LOUD Theatre Brings Intense and Stunning DRACULA to Life
by Robert Barossi - May 9, 2016

Storytelling is something that, fundamentally, defies definition. Who is to say how a story should best be told? How many different ways have stories been passed down over the centuries? Whatever our own preferences are for storytelling forms and devices, there are countless others, often used in successful ways. In its three years of existence, OUT LOUD Theatre has at times defied conventional definitions of storytelling and developed their own unique style. With its spectacular use of that style, their current production of Dracula is a gorgeous example of the company's storytelling prowess, wrapped in a unique and surprising piece of theatrical art.

BWW Review: Rocking Out to the Life of Johnny Cash with RING OF FIRE at CCTC
by Kristen Morale - May 25, 2016

The Cape Cod Theatre Company, home of the Harwich Junior Theatre, has decided to step away traditional staged storytelling and try Something Different with its newest "jukebox" production of Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash. Created by Richard Maltby, Jr and hereby directed and choreographed by Pamela C. Wills, with Nina K. Schuessler serving as Producing Artistic Director, Ring of Fire is a story within and through a performance, and this production has the unique ability to depict the lives of Johnny Cash and June Carter, complete with interchangeable characters and interspersed moments of chronological storytelling, in a way I could image they would have approved of themselves: simple, straightforward and even stark (how fitting that word is) in its presentation but so oddly appropriate for the unadorned but deeply affecting way Cash's music hits you. Those on stage are not "acting" to portray these music legends, but instead almost seem to hand themselves over to the audience's belief that this is not a presentation or something that is purely meant to entertain; they are there to tell a story, and with a wonderfully eclectic mix of songs played in the background, there is something so beautiful in the rawness of this entire production.

BWW Dance Interview: Jelko Yuresha Reflects On His Past and The Dancers of Today
by Juan Michael Porter II - May 23, 2016

At 78, Jelko Yuresha has come to resemble a lion in repose. I recognize him immediately as I enter the lobby -- I am early, he is even earlier -- and what strikes me more than his subtle smile is his eyes. They are the eyes of a man who retains a zest for life though it is evident that little amuses him. This comes as no surprise. After all, he has seen much and traveled far. As we begin the dance of exchanging pleasantries, it becomes apparent that behind the guise of a charming gentlemen I am speaking to the dance version of James Bond -- as played by Sean Connery.

BWW Review: The Moving Company's New Work EVERY SENTENCE IS FOR THE BIRDS Speaks to the Nature of Science and Art and What it Means to be Human
by Jill Schafer - May 2, 2016

The Moving Company is a unique theater company in this town of over 70 theater companies. The descendant of the beloved departed Theatre de la Jeune Lune, MoCo's productions are typically original ensemble-based creations. Like the proverbial box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get with them: over-the-top ridiculous comedy, lovely achingly beautiful poignancy, or more likely, somewhere in between. Their new piece EVERY SENTENCE IS FOR THE BIRDS falls more towards the sublime end of the ridiculous-to-sublime spectrum that they cover. The two-person show about a scientist and her subject is both simple and profound, dealing with topics no less than the nature of science and art, and what it means to be human. Words are inadequate to describe The Moving Company's work, so you should just go see it for yourself. I guarantee it's unlike anything you will see on any other stage in town. (more...)

Arbor Teas Launches Inaugural Summer Reading Series with The Wintree Waltz
by BWW News Desk - May 11, 2016

When one thinks of tea and literature, it might conjure images of Sherlock Holmes pouring himself a cuppa, or of snuggling up with a pot of tea and a favorite book. But people don't often think of tea as being a source of literature. That will change this summer, when Arbor Teas launches the first iteration of its Summer Reading Series with Lauren Doyle Owens's The Wintree Waltz, a short novel developed specifically for the Ann Arbor, Michigan tea company.

BWW Review: Hysterically Funny BACH AT LEIPZIG at Group rep
by Don Grigware - Mar 22, 2016

Musical geniuses of yesteryear like Vivaldi, Handel, Mozart or Bach ... ah, a chosen few who left an unparalleled legacy...but not without bitter resentment and treachery from rivals, some talented, some not... Remember Amadeus by Peter Schaeffer? Salieri stopped at nothing to thwart Mozart's success. Well, now Itamar Moses pits not one, but seven musicians against one another for the coveted position of choirmaster/organist after Johann Kunau dies literally at the organ at Thomaskirche, Leipzig in 1722. There's a flurry of fanciful farce amongst the competitiveness currently onstage in Moses's Bach at Leipzig at Group rep, directed by the brilliant Calvin Remsberg and boasting a devilishly versatile cast, through May 1.

New Sketch Revue to Open at The Public House Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Mar 17, 2016

Come As You Aren't playing April 1st- April 29th at The Public House Theatre. The six person ensemble explores the most intimate and awkward situations of daily life that most people would rather keep secret. Tackling the tough subjects such as death, unwanted pregnancies, political tension, sexual assault, and social anxiety, the cast comprised of Chicago veteran comedians weaves in and out of these often treacherous waters by finding light in the daily darkness that threatens to consume them. This refreshing take on sketch comedy poses the question, 'If one could get those deeply desired 'do-overs' of life, would they change the course of history, or leave it to be messed up all over again?'

Sales is an ever changing profession and business function, with the tactics and strategies that worked a generation or even a decade ago falling flat today. With a constantly changing business environment, fickle consumer sensibilities, the constant rise and decline of sectors, and a cyclical boom and bust economic cycle, building a resilient sales career that crosses industries relies on a universal set of foundational principles. Rather than focusing on mastering the latest in vogue methodology, sales professionals interested in moving from one industry to working in a field that aligns with their inner purpose and they are truly passionate about – Media & Advertising to Medical, for example -- must be prepared to communicate how those fundamental skills apply to the next job, and how they will hit the ground running on day one.

BWW Blog: Parker Hughes - Work It, Darling
by Guest Blogger: Parker Hughes - Feb 17, 2016

Inspiration comes from strange places! For me, it seems to come from people saying profound things on accident. Today's 'out of context life lesson' comes from Rupaul's Drag Race contestant and all-around wonder woman, Mrs. Kasha Davis. Do yourself favor and check this lady out, because she is an absolute doll. Sweet, funny, talented, and charismatic, Mrs. Davis is a terrific entertainer and personality. The other day she appeared on YouTube's WOWPresents's segment "Ring My Bell," where callers can phone in and speak with drag icons. Right off the bat, Mrs. Davis shows her wise and caring side when a caller named Houston requests some advice for people just starting out in drag. She tells them, "Number one: there's a lot of gals out there that have paved the way - watch them, get some ideas, pull from those. Number two: practice, practice, practice! And number three - just own it! Whatever it is you're going to do, own it and love it and everyone will too!" (more...)

There are some shows that tempt a reviewer to write a lengthy essay going into great detail about the many reasons why the show succeeds or fails.
