BWW Reviews: Obsidian Art Space's RUINED is Thought Provoking
by David Clarke - Mar 4, 2014

Lynn Nottage's RUINED was well received in New York City in 2009, and now it is making its Houston premiere in a production produced by Obsidian Art Space.

BWW Reviews: Theater LaB Houston's SIXTY MILES TO SILVER LAKE is a Master Class in Compelling Acting
by David Clarke - Mar 27, 2014

Dan LeFranc is the winner of the 2010 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award. The Regional Premiere of his SIXTY MILES TO SILVER LAKE, produced by Theater LaB, easily illustrates why he won such a prestigious award. It initially seems like a microcosm presentation of the affects of an ugly divorce on a modern American family; however, it becomes clear that SIXTY MILES TO SILVER LAKE is truly a macrocosm of modern American struggles.

BWW Reviews: Nalaga'at Theater's NOT BY BREAD ALONE Is a Rare Glimpse of a Unique Ensemble
by Andrew White - Mar 26, 2014

The framing device for 'Not by Bread Alone' is the baking of bread, an activity that is labor-intensive at first but which also allows plenty of time for family and friends to hang out and swap stories while the dough rises, with more tales to tell when it goes in to bake. The bulk of 'Not by Bread Alone' consists of the performers introducing themselves, talking about their lives and dreams, and acting out a few of their dream-scenarios along the way. (more...)

BWW Reviews: PAUL TAYLOR'S 1982 'Mercuric Tidings' Trumps His 2014 Premiere
by Sondra Forsyth - Mar 24, 2014

On the evening of March 20th 2014, as part of the Diamond Anniversary celebration of the Paul Taylor Dance Company at the Koch Theater, the troupe offered a triple bill that included a recent world premiere and an enduring favorite from 1982. The first two offerings, choreographed in 2012 and 2013 respectively, earned only tepid applause from everyone in the audience including me. The closing piece, on the other hand, rightfully received a nearly thunderous ovation and I was clapping as enthusiastically as the rest of the dancegoers. I only hope that this disparity between the work that was choreographed over three decades ago and those more newly created is not an indication that Taylor, at 83, is no longer turning out the top quality dances that secured him a place in the pantheon of great American modern dance pioneers.

BWW Reviews: ARB at McCarter Theatre - A Perfect Showcase
by Patrick Kennedy - Mar 17, 2014

It's been a long, drowsy winter--though if you're a dance buff, the American Repertory Ballet has put together the perfect showcase to jolt you out of hibernation. Starting with the magnificent melodrama Firebird, and following up with the warm-season works Afternoon of a Faun and Rite of Spring, the troupe took the stage at Princeton's McCarter Theatre just this past week. The program was a celebration of dance both new and old--the world premiere of Douglas Martin's Firebird choreography, no less--a revisitation of the balletic past that was taut, nimble, and modern in about the right measure.

by Guest Blogger: Pulse Festival - Jun 5, 2014

Made In China make theatre that playfully explores the paradoxes of modern identity, by crossing the borders between playwriting and performance art. Our latest show, Gym Party, on at Pulse this Saturday, does so by exploring a particularly big, messy and (we think) universal paradox: our often-secret desire to beat the very people we identify with or need to work with. We made Gym Party with the support of Pulse festival, who co-commissioned it, but also with the support of Pulse's audience, who got to experienced a pretty deranged work-in-progress of the show as we were making it last year.

BWW Reviews: Psych Drama Company and RI Shakespeare Company Present A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
by Robert Barossi - Feb 22, 2014

Some would say that it's the journey that's most important, rather than the destination. Others will argue that it's the destination that matters, no matter how one arrives there. In theater, plays are often concerned with a character's journey, where they have been, where they are headed, why they're going in that direction and, finally, where they actually end up. The current production of A Streetcar Named Desire, jointly presented by Psych Drama Company and Rhode Island Shakespeare Company, is an example of what happens when the journey is secondary, even ignored, and how that can diminish a play's power.
