BWW Reviews: KING CHARLES III, Birmingham Rep, September 9 2015BWW Reviews: KING CHARLES III, Birmingham Rep, September 9 2015
by Jenny Antill - Sep 10, 2015

The Olivier Award-winning production of King Charles III is currently touring the UK off the back of its prior success at the Almeida Theatre and the West End in 2014. There are also imminent measures in place to take the show to Broadway, with previews starting next month at the Music Box Theatre. Referred to as a 'future history' play, the story begins at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth and Charles' acquisition of the highest ranked Royal position as King. The text highlights the rights bestowed on members of the Royal family and focuses on King Charles' decision to dissolve Parliament following the News International phone hacking scandal. His immediate family also feature heavily in the play; the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thrust themselves into a more prominent position of authority and Prince Harry's desire to be a commoner and stripped of any further royal duties.

Any opportunity to catch two-time Grammy-nominated international jazz superstar and frequent favorite BroadwayWorld Cabaret Award-winner Jane Monheit bring her talents to a local venue outside of New York (and even nearby Los Angeles) is its own cause for celebration. That was certainly evidenced by the rapturous reception she received during her triumphant return to Orange County's Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Monheit closed out the Center's 2014-2015 Jazz series with Hello Bluebird, her jazz-centric tribute to the legendary Judy Garland. As expected, the 85-minute concert was nothing less than stunning. Let me repeat... stunning. (more...)

by Robert Barossi - Apr 13, 2015

Door-slamming farce can be a tough beast to tame. There's often so much going on, so much quick-moving action, doors opening and closing, characters literally running from place to place, that it can easily devolve into a confused mess. And there are usually so many witty retorts and double entendres, also often delivered very quickly, that they can sometimes be missed altogether. Luckily, in the hands of Trinity Repertory Company, A Flea in Her Ear by Georges Feydeau, is handled with near-perfect precision. (more...)
