BWW Blog: Emma Mueller - Let the Chips Fall Where They May
by Guest Blogger: Emma Mueller - May 3, 2016

I sat on a bench by myself beside a winding Staircase and several closed doors, where other 17-year-olds like me were pouring their hearts out in audition room. I smoothed my dark blue dress and twisted my perfectly curled hair in between my fingers anxiously. My right leg was crossed over my left, and my foot was tapping the air sporadically as if that would help ease the nerves. I looked at the clock and only 30 seconds had passed since I had last checked the time.  (more...)

BWW Review: JERSEY BOYS at The Paramount: For Frankie Valli Fans Only
by Amelia Reynolds - Mar 10, 2016

Okay, readers. I will be doing my best attempt to review The Paramount's production of 'Jersey Boys' objectively, considering that I am not a fan of Frankie Valli or The Four Seasons. Based on conversations I had with the people in the audience-and conversations I overheard-I seemed to be the only one that had never seen the production before, so I am also coming at this with this one 'Jersey Boys' experience. Bear with me, if you would. (more...)

BWW Review: THE MANOR Returns for its 14th Season at Greystone Mansion
by Shari Barrett - Jan 24, 2016

"The Manor" is by now a Los Angeles/Beverly Hills institution, now in its 14th year and having surpassed its 200th performance in 2014. The show is a roman a clef, a fictionalization based on real events with the actual historical characters given new names. "The names have been changed to protect the guilty," is shared during the show's introduction to the audience. To lend authenticity to the tale, the show is presented in the grand and glorious architectural landmark in which the events of 87 years ago actually took place. Audience members are led from room to room in the lovingly restored marvelous Greystone Mansion as different scenes of the narrative are portrayed, leading up to a shocking and apparent murder and suicide.

BWW Review: SUNSET BOULEVARD at The Larry Keeton Theatre
by Jeffrey Ellis - Feb 26, 2016

There is an iconic scene in Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical version of Sunset Boulevard - based on the memorable film by Billy Wilder - in which Norma Desmond returns triumphantly (in Norma's myopic view of life since the talkies spelled an end to silent pictures, in which she made her fortune with her expressive face) to Paramount studios for an impromptu meeting with Cecil B. DeMille on the set of Samson and Delilah. Impressively played by Ginger Newman in the Nashville debut of Sunset Boulevard at The Larry Keeton Theatre, Norma is beautifully clad in haute couture, generating star power and unaware that she has slipped into obscurity for the most part, her legions of fans decimated by time and the general vagaries of life.

BWW Review: LES BALLETS DE MONTE CARLO Brings the Cinderella of Jean-Christophe Maillot to New York City Center

by Joseph F. Panarello - Feb 22, 2016

David Furr has bruises; lots and lots of bruises. In his stellar performance as Gary Lejeune in the current revival of Michael Frayne's hilarious NOISES OFF, Furr slides on a floor scattered with sardines, stumbles down one Staircase. slips across a balcony, gets his foot caught in a box of theatrical props, wields a hatchet and falls down yet another Staircase which crumbles apart as he does so. It's an understatement to say that his role is physically demanding. (more...)

BWW Review: Irreverent AN ACT OF GOD Brings Deliciously Funny SEAN HAYES to the Ahmanson
by Don Grigware - Feb 11, 2016

Years ago, comedian extraordinaire George Burns inhabited God on film; when he spoke, we listened. The world was in love with Burns, so who presently has the charisma, that same unmistakable appeal? Why, Sean Hayes, of course! Everybody loved him as rambunctious but likable Jack McFarland in TV's Will & Grace. He's the man. Even the voice of God admits up front in An Act of God, currently onstage at the Ahmanson Theatre through March 13, that if he is going to come down and meet the people, there are certain things that He lacks, which Hayes possesses. 'He acts, he sings, he dances, not exceedingly well; he just does them, but in the end we find ourselves rooting for him, don't we? The funny thing is, he has no idea he's here. My depthless profundities will be aided by his offbeat charm.' (more...)
