by BWW News Desk - Mar 9, 2016

When Professor Gladstone receives a thesis paper about Jesse James, he believes the student, Ulysses Hercules Baxter, must have turned it in as a prank. When he calls a meeting with the consistently underwhelming student, he puts Baxter on the spot and asks him to explain the paper. With his grade on the line, Baxter must take Professor Gladstone back in time through his defense of his thesis. (more...)

BWW Review: Hysterically Funny BACH AT LEIPZIG at Group repBWW 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.

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?'

Many may not be familiar with the musical Ghost. Ghost is the musical adaption of the 1990 movie by the same name, written by Bruce Joel Rubin. The musical garnered incredible attention over on Britain's West End. The show's music and overall structure is very different from most classic musicals, with much of the music shouldering away from the typical "show tune" genre. What audiences hear will sound more like Christian Rock, Gospel, and even Disco. "[The music] is definitely more demanding," says music director Kyle Carozza, "the vocal ranges necessary are higher, and there gets to be well over eight parts at some points. I don't dislike it (the style of music), but I like the big, belty, vibrato type of musical theatre better." When I prompted Kyle about whether or not teaching this genre was harder, he surprised me by saying, "No, I think it's somewhat easier. It's more choir-like and isn't as intricate as some musical theatre." (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Feb 22, 2016

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.

From August 16 - September 4 this summer, two of greater Portland's leading theatre companies will combine forces in an exciting and news-making endeavor that is sure to enrich Maine's arts landscape. Both prestigious Equity companies, Maine State Music Theatre and Portland Stage Company, have announced a co-production of Frank McCourt's runaway hit, The Irish and How They Got That Way, at Portland Stage in the weeks following MSMT's regular summer season in Brunswick and before the opening of Portland Stage's 2016-2017 season in late September.

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...)
