BWW Preview: Take a Bite of DRACULA FOR DUMMYS at the Provincetown Theater
by Kristen Morale - Oct 8, 2016

Vampires have become such an essential part of American culture, even if they are only fictional beings; from one of the first allusion to them in Polidori's The Vampyre to more modern takes on this age-old creature, it is amazing how vampires have become the talk of the town - the town being in movies, the written word and now, in this premiere on Cape Cod. DiVincenzo understands their importance, making reference to the Lugosi's famous film legacy. 'I feel like it's a timeless story. Dracula is an icon. I think it's an indelible mark that 1931 film made in our culture. What we're giving [audiences] now is a much younger approach to the Dracula story.' (more...)

BWW Review: Bon Jovi Brings It Home with Live Listening Party at the Barrymore
by Kristen Morale - Oct 21, 2016

Jon Bon Jovi has been making the world that much more special with his music for more than thirty years, and the listening party on October 20th to promote his newest album proved that he isn't quite finished rocking it yet. As an introduction to the band's fourteenth album entitled This House is Not For Sale (to be released on November 4th), Bon Jovi chose the historic Barrymore Theater on West 47th Street in Midtown to play his album in its entirety to an intimate yet practically sold out house of fans both old and new. And as he said during the concert, to those who were either there for the entire journey or those who just joined the party, he gladly performs for all those who are willing to listen to what he has to say.

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...)
