by Jack L. B. Gohn - Sep 16, 2014

So far as I know, Toby's staging of Memphis: The Musical is the first local production to date in the Baltimore area, certainly one of the first, and a worthy introduction of the show to the region. It seems to have everything that the Broadway show has: fiery, precise dancing, tuneful belting of catchy songs, great period costumes. In other words, a sure-fire great time, as one would expect for a musical that, on Broadway, won the Tony for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book. (more...)

BWW Reviews: ArtsWest's DOGFIGHT Manages Some Touching MomentsBWW Reviews: ArtsWest's DOGFIGHT Manages Some Touching Moments
by Jay Irwin - Oct 27, 2014

One of the most exciting and promising new musicals to come out of New York in the last few years for me has to be 'Dogfight'. This adaptation of the little known film from up and coming composers Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and writer Peter Duchan showed off that musical theater still has quite a vibrant heartbeat. So when I heard that ArtsWest was mounting this recent Lucille Lortel Award winner I was quite excited. And while there are a few muddled choices in the current production, the show elicits tons of heart and some truly touching moments especially from Seattle newbie Devon Busswood, but we'll get to more on her in a minute.

by BWW News Desk - Nov 25, 2014

Last winter, when the world was sheathed in a shroud of ice, our hearts were warmed by the story of FROZEN. Now, as the mercury starts to drop, the classic tale of innocence, loyalty, and redemption will be brought back to life with Serenbe Playhouse's The Snow Queen. The world-premiere of Rachel Teagle's adaptation will give audiences the opportunity to embark with Gerda on her heralded quest to save her brother from the icy allure of the mysterious Snow Queen. The story, which showcases the true strength love can have over cynicism, is a sure-fire way to warm our hearts all winter long. "When we decided to produce our first holiday show we knew it needed to be set in a cold environment," Director and Founder Brian Clowdus tells us. "The Snow Queen has such a strong message of redemption and loyalty - what we do for those we love, how to not judge a book by its cover - it was the perfect story for us to tell." (more...)
