The Bonstelle Theatre closes its 2014-15 Season at Wayne State's Midtown theatre with the Tony Award-winning Urinetown: The Musical, playing April 17 - 26.

BWW Reviews: LIVE FROM THE SURFACE OF THE MOON Just Doesn't LandBWW Reviews: LIVE FROM THE SURFACE OF THE MOON Just Doesn't Land
by Rachel Weinberg - Apr 9, 2015

Stable Cable Lab Co.'s production of "Live from the Surface Of the Moon" is certainly far out like the radical 1960s decade in which it takes place…but not necessarily in a good way. Written and directed by Max Baker, this new play takes audiences to a blue-collar home in 1969 Cleveland, Ohio. In this moment, a bizarre cast of characters gathers to view the moon landing on television. Don (Ian Patrick Poake), an ice cream truck driver, and his extremely pregnant wife, Carol (Kate Garfield) have invited over their friends, the pseudo-feminist June (Breanna Foister), and her decidedly sexist, creepy husband Wendell (Brian Edelman). Carol's slightly senile father, Joe (Kevin Gilmartin) and the young, pitiful, and awkward Holly (Lisa Anderson) also join the party. (more...)

Actor Returning to RCP Stage 60 Years After First PerformanceActor Returning to RCP Stage 60 Years After First Performance
by BWW News Desk - Apr 9, 2015

February, 1955: 'Is there a doctor in the house?' This, the oldest theatrical cliche, was uttered by Harriet 'Hattie' Warren, after the curtain was rung down during the first act of the opening performance of 'The Flying Geraldos', our 1955 Rotary show (an annual benefit for Rotary's Sunshine Camp). The line got a big laugh, but for once it was said in earnest. Seems one of the trapeze performers in this play about the circus flopped on his face, knocking his unconscious, hence Hattie's request for medical assistance. The story stuck with Mrs. Warren for the rest of her 20 years as RCP Artistic Director. (more...)

by Pat Cerasaro - Apr 7, 2015

Today we are continuing our expansive ongoing discussion with Tony Award-winning scenic design visionary Beowulf Boritt. Continuing the exhaustive discussion of this week's spectacular one night only concert event PARADE, Boritt outlines the visual high-points of the evening as well as offers an explanation of the impetus for many of the ideas behind the inventive design for the unique event. Additionally, Boritt opens up about his other work at Lincoln Center over the years, including Manhattan Concert Productions presentation of RAGTIME and his Tony Award-winning work on the Moss Hart drama ACT ONE, which will be shown on PBS as part of LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER later this year. Furthermore, Boritt shines a light on his multiple other current musicals running or opening soon - the revival of ON THE TOWN on Broadway, plus HAND TO GOD opening soon and Off-Broadway's CLINTON: THE MUSICAL. Plus, Boritt details his work on a dizzying array of current tours and recent mainstage mountings of musicals ranging from the national tours of ANNIE and JOSEPH & THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT to his work on LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, LITTLE DANCER, THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS in the West End and far beyond. As if all that were not enough, Boritt also looks ahead to the 2016 Tokyo production of the Harold Prince revue PRINCE OF BROADWAY and comments on rumors of an impending New York return of THE TOXIC AVENGER while sharing first news on his involvement with a number of new productions including the Keira Knightley-led revival of THERESE RAQUIN and the forthcoming revival of A BRONX TALE. All of that and much, much more in this concluding portion of our extended chat with one of Broadway's best visual artists. (more...)

In an effort to support artists trying to break into the Chicago art scene, who live in other states & other countries, this steppingstone gallery in the most unusual neighborhood for a gallery, offers an annual art show for people who live far away. Also, to encourage people to view art from other states & other countries, this non-profit organization offers a unique opportunity for local people to enjoy modern art from far away. For people in Chicago-land to see art by people in distant places helps people to connect with humanity & touch base with counterparts in other lands.

Spaulding & 21st street.

The curator is always on hand at opening receptions to help explain the art, introduce artists & their works.
