by Don Grigware - Sep 29, 2014

I revert to childhood when I see a Mel Brooks movie or show. The sillier the better: the sight gags, the double entendres, the more the merrier. The New Mel Brooks Musical, Young Frankenstein is a real rip-roaring hoot of a show from start to finish as produced by DOMA with a great cast and zippy fast-paced direction and fine staging from Marco Gomez.

by BWW News Desk - Sep 29, 2014

KTUU, the NBC affiliate in Anchorage, Alaska, debuted its new studio today. Many television stations want a set design that reflects the local "feel" of its state or city, and represents the pride of the people that live there. With more than 60 years of broadcasting in Alaska, KTUU came to FX Design Group with big ambitions. Not only did station managers want the grandeur of Alaska represented in the new set design, but also the pioneering roots of one of Alaska's first television stations. (more...)

by Roy Berko - Sep 22, 2014

Lillian Hellman, author of 'The Little Foxes,' which is now in production at the Cleveland Playhouse, was a rebel with many causes. An independent woman in an era before the women's rights and liberation movements, she had strong political and societal opinions. Because of her liberal affiliations she was blacklisted by the House Un-American Activities Committee. She was 'a smoker, a drinker, a lover, and a fighter, who took stands against and placed a negative spotlight on greed, ambition and misguided principles.' She was an advocate for the downtrodden. These principles are at the foundation of 'The Little Foxes.' (more...)

Francis Patrelle, the artistic director/resident choreographer of Dances Patrelle says in a program note that prior to 1982 he had never seen any version of the Romeo and Juliet ballet. It certainly sounds strange to me. Where had he been all that time? It seems that everyone I knew in the dance world had seen some production of it. Even my brothers, who detest ballet, had seen the Fonteyn/Nureyev movie. Be that as it may, I won't hold it against him. (more...)

Tonight's episode starts with a scene that could have come right out of an Agatha Christie novel. An opulent party at a ritzy museum. The glitter of gowns. The shimmer of champagne. Magnificent objects of art all around. The venom of a vicious old woman as she belittles the city's elite. But this is no ordinary old woman; this is Gloria Carlisle, a blue-blooded billionairess and matriarch of the most prominent family of Manhattan. So everyone, from the mayor down to the curator of the museum, is more than willing to stomach her nastiness. Except, of course, for the person who murdered Gloria on the elegant marble Staircase.

BWW Reviews: JERSEY BOYS Rocks LA Once MoreBWW Reviews: JERSEY BOYS Rocks LA Once More
by Don Grigware - Oct 6, 2014

Jersey Boys, called a jukebox musical, is an uber well-structured, Tony Award-winning show presented in a documentary-like format. It tells the true story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, retaining most of their original musical hits. There are lots of laughs, great rock and roll music and a realistic look at how the group got started in 1963, the difficulties they faced in staying together, their eventual breakup and ultimate survival. Director Clint Eastwood kept pretty close to the book of the show in his recent film adaptation, and the musical score, generated by its lead actors along with some tracks of the real Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, is dynamite. The show has played world wide and now returns on tour to the Pantages for 3 weeks only. Judging by its reception opening night, Jersey Boys keeps on captivating its audiences, young and old. This cast under the original direction of Des McAnuff is every bit as supreme as the original including the first national tour. (more...)

Friends, today is a sad day. INTRUDERS, the creepy, paranormal series that reminds other shows in the genre that sophisticated writing and directing actually meshes really well with blood and gore, comes to an end. But if we've learned anything from tonight's episode, it's that “In the end, there is no end.” (Thanks for that wisdom, Richard.) So instead of wondering how we're going to fill our Saturday nights, let's have faith that there will be a season two (there better be a season two), take a walk down memory lane, and reminisce about tonight's season finale.

by Roundabout Theatre Company - Aug 25, 2014

Central to the comic plot of You Can't Take It with You are the eccentricities of the Sycamore family. The entire three-act play takes place in the house where this extended family lives in upper Manhattan. We wanted the audience to get the sense that this family doesn't quite conform to their surroundings from the moment they enter the theater, so, rather than a standard show curtain, they see the front porch of a fully three dimensional, faintly Victorian, turn-of-the-century house, flanked on each side by renderings of two relatively modern apartment buildings from the 1930s. Inspired by architectural 'holdouts' that are sprinkled throughout New York City, this image creates a stark contrast between the Sycamore house and the prevailing aesthetic of the rest of the neighborhood -- playfully hinting at the quirky family that the audience is about to meet.
