BWW Review: Stunning FOLLIES at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis
by Chris Gibson - Sep 20, 2016

While I was watching FOLLIES, I was reminded of our own beloved Fox Theatre, and how it had tread a similar path during the 1970's. Like the fictional Weismann Theatre where this story's action takes place, it had been fallen on hard times, reduced to screening Kung-Fu and exploitation film fare before being renovated and reopened. But there is no restoration in the cards for the Weismann, and the people that come to it for one final celebrated glimpse may be nearing the point of being past reclamation themselves. This is superior Sondheim, and though it's not revived as often as some of his other works, it's full of the kind of interweaving melodies and motifs that this master composer is so adept at creating. Find out for yourself just how compelling and engaging this musical is by seeing The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis' stunning production that opens their 50th season. (more...)

BWW Review: Roundhouse & Olney's ANGELS IN AMERICA: MILLENNIUM APPROACHES an Artistic and Historic Triumph
by Andrew White - Sep 15, 2016

Angels in America:  Millennium Approaches is not just a national treasure, it is a glimpse of history in the making; it is a then-marginalized community seizing the stage, demanding attention, and beginning the long process of changing hearts and minds across the country.  To watch the kaleidoscope of characters, brilliantly portrayed here by some of Washington DC's finest actors, can be incredibly moving.  Not just for the performances themselves, which are memorable indeed, but for how those performances remind us of the changes this play made possible.

BWW Recap: Everyone is an 'Oathbreaker' on GAME OF THRONES
by Jessica Naftaly - May 9, 2016

This week's episode of Game of Thrones aired on Mother's Day, perhaps as an ironic detail of seeding spread throughout the episode in the same vein that Tyrion killed Tywin in season 4 on Father's Day. The episode, entitled “Oathbreaker,” had it's share of deaths and gore, but seemingly shed light on three of our characters whom can be considered “oathbreakers” of sorts. (more...)

BWW Review: Fine Performances Make TREVOR Must See Theatre
by Frank Benge - May 23, 2016

Using true events as source material, TREVOR by Orange is the New Black writer Nick Jones, is at once witty, hilarious and gut-wrenching. The story is about former show biz chimp Trevor (Jason Newman), a 200-pound chimpanzee, and his owner Sandra (Rebecca Robinson), who has an almost maternal attachment to him. At the core, the play is a look at misunderstood communication. Sandra thinks she knows what Trevor is thinking, but the audience is aware of how far off she actually is. Trevor is almost singularly focused on returning to his show biz existence when he worked with Morgan Fairchild (Rebecca Pearcy) in a 'commercial about water bottles or possibly paper'. It is this communication failure that leads to mounting tensions and the ultimately tragic ending. Consider just how frustrating it is not being able to truly communicate with the person you depend on. Yes, this happens in human relationships all the time, but when you make one of the elements in the equation an animal with violent tendencies, both the tension and the very real chance for disaster rise exponentially.

BWW Review: Nashville Rep's Jazz-Age Triumph CHICAGO
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 20, 2016

Chicago is one of my favorite cities on the planet, so it goes that Chicago, the Tony Award- and Oscar-winning musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb, is also one of my favorite stage musicals. Brash, sassy, laugh-out-loud funny at one moment, and heart-tuggingly and sweetly sentimental at the next - with a musical score that's memorable and pitch-perfect in the skillful way it tells the story of wannabe vaudeville superstars Roxie Hart and Velma Kelly - Chicago has been a part of the musical theater vernacular for almost 40 years.

BWW Review: Circle Players' CHILDREN OF EDEN
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 19, 2016

It would have taken a miracle to save the opening night of Circle Players' Children of Eden - one of the most eagerly anticipated productions of the season in Music City - from the wrath of God: in this case an abysmal sound design that prevented the audience from hearing Lauren Frances Jones' exquisite vocal performance as Eve in the Stephen Schwartz/John Caird musical.

BWW Recap: THRONES Brings Death and Destruction in 'The Battle of the Bastards'
by Jessica Naftaly - Jun 20, 2016

We're just one episode away from the final episode of Season 6 of Game of Thrones and the penultimate episode entitled “The Battle of the Bastards” premiered last night. Despite what the promos had us believe, we got not one, but two battles this episode, and it was certainly an episode jam packed with death, gore, and violence. All three things we're quite used to on Thrones! Episode 9 of this show has become known amongst its viewers and creators as the big one. It's usually the episode where everything comes to fruition, The Climax of the series that has everyone cheering and applauding the show immediately after for its genius and shock. Last year we had “Hardhome,” which was a direct departure from the books and gave us death and destruction, only to have the Night King lift his arms and raised the dead. However, this episode, despite being totally epic in scale and stunning visually, lacked a certain complexity, integrity, and dimensionality that made episodes like “Blackwater” back in Season 2 so rich and exciting. “The Battle of the Bastards” was entertaining and a feat of direction, cinematography, and scale, for sure, but its predictability, cluttered circumstance, and ever so confusing character choices and motivations made the episode suffer as a whole.  (more...)

BWW Review: AUS Premiere of THE WHALE Gives Hungry Audiences Something New at Old Fitz Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Feb 5, 2016

It would be best not to use the phrase 'whale of a time' when discussing the potential enjoyment of Red Line Productions' 'The Whale' showing at Old Fitz Theatre. Chiefly because puns do not usually denote a refined critic. Rest assured, this one's a good one. (more...)

BWW Reviews: YEAR OF THE FAMILY Surprises and Scandalises at King's Cross Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Feb 11, 2016

Tooth and Sinew theatre company have once again shown their penchant for controversy and passion in their latest offering, an abstraction of renowned Scottish playwright Anthony Neilson's Year of the Family. When an audience member steps into the domestic environment of strangers, they always know they're in for an experience to push boundaries and transport into real introspection, which Ash Bell has pushed even further in her stage design. Ultimately, what audiences can expect is a humourously voyeuristic piece they can comfortably walk away from feeling better about their own trauma. (more...)

Serious expectations, then, but you wouldn't know it from this fearless, fleet-footed and impressively cohesive show - destined to be a smash hit because of, not despite, its glorious idiosyncrasies.

BWW Review: Salomé Gets A Reprieve in Gale Theatre Company Production
by Joni Lorraine - Aug 11, 2016

Taking on a story of such biblical proportions (pun intended) as SALOME is a courageous act and The Gale Theatre Company, is a courageous ensemble. 'Everyone is safe but no one is comfortable,' is a commitment the company shares in the program for their interpretation of SALOME. Salome, the 'dancing woman' from the New Testament, has been depicted in all manner of artful medium - theatre, opera, poetry, film, ballet, even a video game. She is an icon, arguably more interesting even than the first woman Eve. And so it is that the Gale Theatre Company, under the direction of Katherine Wilkinson and choreography of Earl Kim, tackle this biblical figure made icon by playwright Oscar Wilde, portrayed in film by the likes of Theda Bara and Rita Hayworth. In this depiction though, we start at Salome's end, rather than her beginning. 'What does a woman do when she is left alone to grieve?' (more...)

BWW Review: Playhouse's BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE Entertains Despite Lackluster Material
by Jeff Davis - Aug 1, 2016

by Keith Tittermary - Apr 7, 2016

Brick, the fermenting favorite son in Tennessee Williams' masterpiece, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof says that there are two ways out of life: death and liquor. Brick is trying to escape his life with the latter, while Big Daddy is facing the first. Father and son are so far away from each other that when The Climax of the show occurs during the second act, you see the intersection between one who wants to live and one who wants to forget.

BWW REVIEW: The God Complex, Anat Gov's 'Oh, God' at Israeli Stage
by Justin J Sacramone - Apr 30, 2016

Stop me if you've heard this one before. God walks into a therapist's office and says he's depressed. The therapist asks "how long have you felt this way?" and God says, "something like...two thousand, two thousand five hundred years, give or take." "You've been depressed for two thousand years and only now you've come for therapy? What were you waiting for?" asks the therapist and God says "I thought time would heal." Sometimes, everyone needs a swift 90 minute session of cathartic therapy to unpack some problems festering for two thousand years. In Anat Gov's play "Oh, God," an earthly psychologist is chosen to have a session with the Big Guy about a 2000 year old itch. (more...)

by Michael Rabice - Apr 22, 2016

Three of Buffalo's esteemed arts organizations have teamed together to present what is being called THE YEATS PROJECT: TWO PLAYS BY W.B. YEATS. This non-traditional event may best be described as a piece of performance art incorporating the talents of the Irish Classical Theatre, Lehrer Dance and Torn Space Theatre. The result, while occasionally beautiful to watch, was often perplexing in it's dramatic propulsion of Yeats' two stories. (more...)

by Brodie Paparella - Apr 18, 2016

The Great Fire takes place in the all-too-familiar Australian disaster zone: mum and dad's place at Christmas. On an idyllic Adelaide Hills property, a family gathers to decide the next phase of their lives as part of the ever-gentrifying arts industry in this domestic drama written by Kit Brookman. This reviewer should declare that, having been born and raised in Adelaide and therefore aware of the artistic prowess of the Brookman family there, I may be somewhat biased in my familiarity for this piece. Nevertheless, we carry on. (more...)
