BWW Review: SOMEWHERE IN ENGLAND, New Wimbledon Studio, 12 October 2016
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Oct 12, 2016

Somewhere in England is a piece of 1940s war-time nostalgia with a big heart, brought to life in the cosy surroundings of New Wimbledon Studio this week. The show is an escapist and pastoral view of an interesting part of history, when American GIs arrived in England to prepare for the invasion of Normandy. They brought with them nylons, Coca Cola and bags of energy and fun. The appearance of the lively and girl-deprived young soldiers in the quiet village creates ripples with all the residents; some welcome, some less so. The show tells the story as the GIs settle into village life over the course of an eventful year; falling in love, creating a stir and making life-long friendships. (more...)

BWW Opera Review: Vertical Player Repertory Disinters Pacini's MALVINA DI SCOZIA
by Richard Sasanow - May 16, 2016

As part of the New York Opera Fest, Brooklyn's scrappy Vertical Player Repertory ventured into Manhattan's Christ and St. Stephen's Church near Lincoln Center, bringing with it a true rarity: Giovanni Pacini's bel canto-ish MALVINA DI SCOZIA, which dates from 1851. And while it was good to hear a work that competed in its day with the operas of Bellini, Rossini and Donizetti (not to mention the up-and-coming Verdi), “rarity” isn't necessarily synonymous with “ready for prime time,” even in Vertical's spirited production.
