BWW Review: The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts Asks the Musical Question, 'SHALL WE DANCE?'
by Gary Laird - Mar 16, 2017

The latest iteration of the production on tour is crafted with care and performed with verve. It's an 'old-fashioned' Broadway staple, and it never wears out its welcome. It unabashedly tugs at the heartstrings, tickles the funny bone and jerks the tears, just as it did when it opened 66 years ago this month. Few musicals achieve this kind of longevity, and more than a few of those are from the pens of Rodgers and Hammerstein. (more...)

Guest Blog: Director Dan Hutton On Topical Play BIG GUNS
by Guest Blog: Dan Hutton - Mar 16, 2017

When I first read Big Guns in the early autumn last year, it felt very much like a play about how political and cultural establishments can create The Illusion of threat in order to gain power and control over a population. In the wake of Brexit and the 2015 UK election victory, the way in which two characters summon an imaginary gunman into the room evoked, for me, how those two campaigns played on our fear and insecurities to assert dominance.

BWW Review: FLOYD COLLINS Melodramatically Spelunkers Into Eternal Fame at Blank Canvas
by Roy Berko - Mar 13, 2017

'Floyd Collins,' now on stage at Blank Canvas Theatre, isn't your typical musical. There is no dancing, no show-stopper production numbers, no intentional humor, no subplot, no 'I wish for' numbers. It's a tale of simple folks, a story focused on a man with an obsession to spelunker (explore caves), the power of sensationalism in the press, and the role of family and faith. (more...)

BWW Review: Sally Field Stars In Sam Gold's Exquisite Production of THE GLASS MENAGERIE
by Michael Dale - Mar 12, 2017

One of the great things about live theatre is its lack of permanence. In film, the words, directorial choices, performances and other artistic contributions all exist as an unchangeably whole work of art. But with theatre, each production of a play, no matter how many times it has been done before, begins with only the author's text, leaving a new collection of creative souls to decide what to do with it.

BWW Review: OKC Broadway Dazzles With the National Tour of MOTOWN THE MUSICAL
by Ronn Burton - Mar 10, 2017

OKC Broadway presents the national tour of MOTOWN THE MUSICAL March 7th-12th, 2017 at the Civic Center Musical Hall. Staged by Schele Williams (associate director from the Broadway production, originally directed by Charles Randolph-Wright) MOTOWN delivers a buzzing, delightful evening of your favorite songs - and they've never been done better. The audience was up on their feet dancing by the end of the show, and throughout the evening could often be found waving their hands in the air and singing along (you can decide for yourself whether this is a good or bad thing.) If you're looking for a trip down memory lane, head down to the Civic Center and experience an effervescent evening of MOTOWN music. (more...)

BWW Review: Life and WHAT WE WANTED at the Clurman Theatre
by Kristen Morale - Jan 7, 2017

Written by David Harms and directed by Drew Foster (in association with Skyhook Productions LLC) for its current run at the Clurman Theatre (NY's Theatre Row), What We Wanted is truly one of the most intriguing plays I have ever seen performed. After a few moments' adjustment in understanding exactly what is happening, followed by a brief evaluation of whether the family scene before us is acceptable or slightly unsettling, the characters simply become people whose lives are unraveled before the audience to reveal bare, confused human beings affected by the absurdity of life, just as everyone is.

BWW Review: THE GLASS MENAGERIE, Duke of York's Theatre
by Marianka Swain - Feb 3, 2017

'I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion,' declares Tom Wingfield, the narrator of Tennessee Williams's exquisite memory play. Director John Tiffany has proved gloriously adept at handling both sides of the equation in the magical trick-filled yet emotionally authentic Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and here too, in this acclaimed production that comes to the West End via Broadway and Edinburgh, wonders rub shoulders with bruising truths. (more...)

North Coast Repertory Theatre presents THE ILLUSION
by BWW News Desk - Feb 2, 2017

North Coast Repertory Theatre proudly presents The Illusion, hailed by The New York Times as "Fantastical…takes your breath away." Legendary playwright Tony Kushner (Angels in America) displays his brilliance in this wildly inventive tour de force, which celebrates the magic and illusory nature of theatre. Employing crackling, contemporary language and sheer artistry, Kushner creates this most joyfully theatrical play: a supremely entertaining tale of passion, regret, love and magic. Freely adapted from Pierre Corneille's L'Illusion Comique, The Illusion was praised by Chicago Theatre Beat as "hilarious, dreamlike and startlingly poignant". (more...)

Noel Coward was 39 years old when he played the lead role of Garry Essendine, a famous actor fearing for the future of his career as he enters middle age, in the premiere production of his rollickingly good comedy, PRESENT LAUGHTER.
