BWW Review: Op Carolina's BARBER OF SEVILLE – Melodious and Mirthful
by Perry Tannenbaum - Oct 26, 2016

Poor Beaumarchais. A crucial friend of the American Revolution, French playwright Pierre Beaumarchais's great Figaro comedies have been both favored and scorned by history. Just two years after The Marriage of Figaro premiered in Paris, Mozart's 1786 adaptation eclipsed the theater version, remaining one of opera's supreme masterworks to this day. And the Rossini version of the first Figaro play, THE BARBER OF SEVILLE, has a been an operagoer's favorite ever since its Rome premiere in 1816. (more...)

BWW Review: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA at Bass Performance Hall
by Kyle Christopher West - Oct 25, 2016

After a record-breaking twenty-eight years on Broadway (and nearly the same timespan on the road), THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is an international sensation that's been seen by virtually everyone. In fact, nearly 150 million people have sat in the audience for a performance and listened to the Andrew Lloyd Webber score in more than 15 languages! Up until the 2004 feature film, each of these performances followed the blueprint created by director Harold Prince and CATS choreographer Gillian Lynn, first staging it in London where it currently celebrates its 30th year of success. But, in 2012, producer Cameron Mackintosh recruited West End director Laurence Connor to helm a sparkling new production, later inspiring a new US tour that has just returned to Bass Hall in its second DFW-area appearance. And while 'Phans' of the original production might miss a few iconic elements, the new tour offers an exciting opportunity to experience the show through a new pair of opera glasses. (more...)

BWW Blog: Monica Furman - Spotlight on Chapman Alum LeeAnn Dowd
by Guest Blogger: Monica Furman - Oct 20, 2016

This week has been a lot of schoolwork and rehearsals (the usual). So, I decided to interview one of my favorite humans who happens to also be in the theatre. LeeAnn Dowd was the first Chapman person I met; it was during the summer before my freshman year in NYC while she was interning. We instantly hit it off and she even came to one of our shows! During my freshman year I looked at LeeAnn, a senior at the time, as a role model; she started Cross the Line with another senior, Sierra Stenzel, the club that I'm leading now. Our outlook on theatre was very similar. We also went on to do ASTEP's Artist as Citizen Conference together, which was an incredible experience for us to share. Even though LeeAnn has graduated and moved to San Francisco, we still keep in touch and she graciously let me interview her for the blog. Hope you enjoy getting to know a recent post-grad perspective! (more...)
