BWW Review: It's a Pleasure Getting to Know Lyric Opera's THE KING AND I
by Rachel Weinberg - May 2, 2016

Under the direction of Lee Blakeley at Lyric Opera (who originally staged this production for Paris's Theatre du Chatelet in 2014), Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic musical THE KING AND I is heightened to the lavish and beautiful spectacle it deserves. This story of British school teacher Anna Leonowens who arrives in Siam to instruct the many children of the King has moments of sweeping grandiosity but also many of emotional intimacy-the Lyric's production makes the full emotional arc a delight to watch. Visually, the creative team captures every inch of the musical's opulence. Sue Blane's costume designs are breathtakingly elaborate and incorporate an inspiring display of color; Anna's magnificent hoop skirts are definitely a highlight. Jean-March Puissant's set design also captures the grandiosity of a royal palace with many intricate details, while also giving the performers the space they need to execute Peggy Hickey's choreography, and Rick Fisher's lighting adds to the decadent atmosphere.

BWW Review: PAGEANT is Pink Cotton Candy Escapism
by Frank Benge - Jun 13, 2016

PAGEANT, when it originally opened in 1991, was almost ground breaking. The idea of doing a musical parody of a beauty pageant performed by men in drag was fresh… and a little bit crazy in all the good ways. However, twenty five years later, in 2016, the concept creaks in a world where we have RuPaul's Drag Race and traditional beauty pageants have been relegated to cable channels few people watch.

BWW Blog: Nanjibah Khan - Trying New Things
by Guest Blogger: Nanjibah Khan - Jul 15, 2016

Summertime. For theatre kids that aren't attending something like theatre camp, this season is complete agony. Even when you're on vacation, it's weird… Not getting the daily dose of rehearsal that your body feels like it needs after years of it. Yet, I feel like summertime is a perfect opportunity to try out new things in the theatre itself. It can help you understand what other parts of theatre you're interested in, because even if it doesn't seem like it, it's not all about the singing and the acting and the dancing! There are people behind all of that, and without their abilities, there wouldn't be a show at all.  (more...)
