BWW Review: The Engeman's 1776
by Melissa Giordano - Sep 28, 2016

In seeing the Tony winning Sherman Edwards/Peter Stone musical 1776, we get an interesting account of the events leading up to the signing of the Declaration Of Independence. It is actually uncanny - and kind of funny - how this story still resonates today; petty arguing amongst congress and how divided 'leaders' can be are emphasized in this production. Obviously we've come far since then but, at the same time, it seems not far at all. (more...)

M. K. Christopher Pens CHRONICLES OF GENESIS: ASCENSION
by BWW News Desk - Sep 20, 2016

M. K. Christopher, author of the new book 'Chronicles of Genesis: Ascension', is a chicken-eating, hoodie-wearing, door-holding, trumpet-playing, sheep-worshiping, joke-telling, book-writing, game-playing, science-shouting young adult born in Illinois. The only awards he ever won were for wearing a sweatshirt throughout all of summer at band camp and for holding the door for the entirety of the band for three years in a row. Marc also started a running meme of 'Get serious!' and 'All hail the sheep!' just because he could. He plays the trumpet and the French horn and loves video games, comedy, science, and chickens, because he thinks they are awesome. His favorite quality of life is irony, because a joke is a very serious thing. He is not some great artistic legendary master of ink and paper. He is a simple, 'slightly' vulgar, sarcastic, anonymous mortal with a pen, some paper, and a dream. (more...)

Photo Flash: NUTCRACKER at The New Jersey Foundation for Dance and Theatre Arts
by BWW News Desk - Oct 24, 2016

There is a chill in the air and winter is on its way.  Whether the glow in your home comes from Chanukah candles or the bright lights around the Christmas tree, you surely appreciate that this is a time of year when tradition is everywhere you look.  One of the most popular holiday traditions is "The Nutcracker." Peter Tchaikovsky's classic was first presented in Europe back in 1892. You may be familiar with productions by The New York City Ballet, or other repertory companies but the interpretation of The New Jersey Foundation for Dance and Theatre Arts is in a different category and is not to be missed. They have been presenting their spectacular rendition of "The Nutcracker" in the North Jersey area for 23 years.  The show is considered one of New Jersey's finest dance and theatrical presentations.  Reviews of the performance have hailed it as a superb production of "The Nutcracker" with a twist.  The "twists" are director Nancy King's special touches and whimsical additions. "It's fast moving", she says, "It's a story that has something for everybody, whether you are a child seeing a ballet for the first time or someone who has seen many performances." It would be impossible not to get excited talking to King. Her love for dance and theater come across in every word she speaks. The results are a Nutcracker that combines many different styles of dance and musical theater. The opening scene is a musical theater production of an early 1900's village celebration, including holiday vocalists and specially choreographed dances. (more...)
