by Ellie Livingston - Nov 24, 2014

As the walls of the set came down one by one, the walls that the family built around themselves and their hearts also came down. Sometimes it takes heartbreak to make families glue themselves back together. It was wonderful to see that take place in this script. I hope to see other works from Woods, I have a feeling he has a lot of lines left in him. (more...)

CSULB University Players & Four Clowns' UBU THE SH*T Opens TonightCSULB University Players & Four Clowns' UBU THE SH*T Opens Tonight
by BWW News Desk - Nov 21, 2014

Running tonight, November 21- December 7, the CSULB University Players and Los Angeles-based clown troupe Four Clowns will present a modern retelling of French playwright Alfred Jarry's Ubu Roi entitled Ubu the Sh*t. Four Clowns' Artistic Director and CSULB Theatre Arts alum Jeremy Aluma has adapted Jarry's script and is directing this collaborative production. With clown training and techniques incorporated into the rehearsal process by Aluma and members of the Four Clowns company, the undergraduate cast has been given the opportunity to explore the art of clown first-hand by some of Los Angeles' most experienced clown teachers, creating a truly unique version of Jarry's absurdist comedy. For many of the undergraduate actors in Ubu, this is their first experience with working in the art of clown. (more...)

Mitch Hara breaks The Fourth Wall in his hilarious solo play MUTANT OLIVE about father and son forgiveness. A self-described "ADHD buzz saw looking for a two-by-four," Hara gives life to alter-ego Adam Astra, an actor whose past seems to constantly seep into his present. Astra gleefully spoons out tales of his soul-sucking childhood, monstrous substance abuse, rampant sex and crashed cars - all during the course of an audition for "Death of a Salesman" for which he is totally wrong.

BWW Reviews: MOTOWN Brings Big Beat and Big Heat to Heinz HallBWW Reviews: MOTOWN Brings Big Beat and Big Heat to Heinz Hall
by Greg Kerestan - Jan 2, 2015

Any long-time theatregoer will have horror stories of audiences that got too enthusiastic at a show with well-known music, especially jukebox musicals made up of mostly pre-existing pop tunes. I've known people to hum or outright sing along, whoop, cheer and scream like they're at a concert, or even get up and dance in the aisles. At most shows, this behavior is frowned upon by other audience members, or suppressed by ushers. However, at 'Motown,' the Berry Gordy bio-musical, this engaged behavior is encouraged- hell, it's part of the show. You see, audiences at 'Motown' fill a triplicate role: first, the traditional audience at a play, watching the events unfold through The Fourth Wall; second, the (in-world) audience watching a Motown retrospective show; finally, the various real, historical audiences at performances by Motown artists, from Parisians getting to hear the first international performances by The Supremes, to a spontaneously integrated audience in the Deep South, at a Motown show interrupted by gunshots.

by Rachel Weinberg - Jan 19, 2015

Kate Benson's new play 'A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes' takes place not on a lake, as the title might suggest, but rather in a gymnasium. The high-stakes Thanksgiving dinner at the center of the play unfolds at Wembley Stadium, where two announcers, # in charge of action and @ color commentary (yes, those are truly their names), quite literally call the shots into microphones from a booth above the stage. Directed by Lee Sunday Evans, this production relies on the ensemble to use heightened physicality and emotionality in order to bring this match to life. Fortunately, the actors who portray the Wembley family are fully committed to the challenged of making theatre into a literal game. In this production by New Georges in collaboration with Women's Project Theater, the unconventional 'Beautiful Day' is brought to vibrant, zany life. (more...)

From the get-go, there's an enticing fascination that swirls wildly around this quirky, expressively theatrical Brit import, which is the latest U.S.-touring production from Kneehigh, the much-lauded Cornwall, England-based stage troupe.

BWW Reviews: ANIMALS OUT OF PAPER Poignantly Examines the Folds of Our LivesBWW Reviews: ANIMALS OUT OF PAPER Poignantly Examines the Folds of Our Lives
by Rachel Weinberg - Feb 16, 2015

The initial set-up for Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph's 'Animals Out of Paper' at first seems contrived: Ilana Andrews, a down-on-her-luck origami artist who has hit a wall both creatively and personally, finds her life shaken up when a nerdy, overly optimistic math teacher asks her to mentor his brilliant-yet-troubled student. As directed by Merri Milwe, however, the circumstances in YOLO! Productions and The Great Griffon's production of the play feel entirely genuine. This depth of feeling comes in part from Joseph's smart playwriting and also from the three talented actors who take the text from two-dimensional paper to three-dimensional staging. As the play unfolds (pun intended), we see the rawness and honesty underneath the initial scenario that sets the plot in motion. (more...)

Few people reach that status in life where all you have to do is hear their name, or voice, and you know exactly who they are, but Dr. Ruth Westheimer is certainly one of those individuals that have reached that level of fame. Her place in history is undeniable, and she's definitely someone whose journey is inspiring and worthy of inclusion in The New Jewish Theatre's 'chai', or 18th season, which celebrates life. If there is anyone who could truly be called a survivor, but maybe would better be described as a 'thriver', because she seems to have an uncanny drive to succeed, it would be her. NJT's presentation of Mark St. Germain's BECOMING DR. RUTH is a fascinating tour through the highlights and lowlights she dealt with on her rise to becoming a cultural icon, and it's a very entertaining and emotional piece of theatre that should not be missed.

I'd have to be, well... a mean ol' Grinch to say anything remotely negative about the new non-equity touring stage production of DR. SEUSS' HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! THE MUSICAL, so I'll try my best to keep it to a minimum. Honestly though, it's really not that hard, actually, because---surprise---the show, for the most part, is an honest-to-goodness adorable little musical with lots of kid-friendly comedy and a feel-good holiday message that really softens even the hardest of cynics. And yes, even I myself found my heart growing three sizes during the course of the show's smile-inducing opening night performance at Costa Mesa's Segerstrom Center for the Arts (it continues here for a brief run through December 14). Sure, the show isn't exactly the pinnacle of musical theater excellence, nor does it even attempt to be. But what it lacks in roof-raising, show-stopping splendor, it makes up for ten-fold in pure pluck---the kind that kids, especially, will eat right up like candy. (more...)
