BWW Blog: Cheyenne Dalton - Post-Audible Separation
by Guest Blogger: Cheyenne Dalton - Sep 27, 2016

This time last year, I met my friend Anthony Narciso. He was contracted to be the sound designer for Playhouse Creatures, a show that I was running sound for.  We didn't know it at the time, but we were to become thick as thieves and become the best sound team there has ever been (okay, maybe we're a little biased). We share sound effects, projects, and ideas - a good mark of two sound designer best friends. We created a shared dropbox folder - and titled it Anthony and Cheyenne Sing Sound Shanty's. Probably the most important folder we have inside our sound shanty's is our sound dictionary. We've just been taking ordinary words and using them to define events and happenings that we find in the world of sound. For example, the first definition we came up with was for 'Smashed,' which is defined as 'the poor mixing of a track, only possible when patching a fisher price keyboard into a cassette tape recorder and mixed with low quality YouTube,' and this definition spawned from a show choir performance in which I received a terribly recorded track to play.

BWW Blog: Christopher Castanho - New Musical: Come From Away
by Christopher Castanho - Sep 21, 2016

This production is a perfect example of why I am enamored with Theatre and Art, and why I am proud to be part of this community.

The love and selflessness the citizens of Gander and Newfoundland had for all of the foreign travelers is astonishing. The locals 'took in' and fed 6,579 stranded passengers, which was half the size of the town's population. (more...)

BWW Review: Epic Theatre Begins Fifth Season with Powerful THE GUYS
by Robert Barossi - Sep 19, 2016

Epic Theatre Company begins its fifth full-length season with an attempt to walk that fine line, presenting the Rhode Island premiere of Anne Nelson's play The Guys. A simple, straightforward story, Nelson's work offers us only two characters, two people who would be complete Strangers if not for the events in New York City on that day. Joan is a New York City writer, and transplant from Oklahoma, who is at the center of the play, often breaking into monologues to talk to address the audience directly about the events of the day and how it impacted her and everyone else. Nick is a Fire Captain, one who lost a number of men in the towers during the attacks. He arrives at Joan's doorstep asking for a very specific form of help: he needs her to help him write the eulogies for the men who died while under his command. (more...)
