BWW Review: SHIRLEY VALENTINE, Richmond Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Mar 21, 2017

There are few male playwrights who have captured the female psyche as well as Willy Russell. The character of Shirley is both simple and complex. On one hand all she wants is to escape her life of regimented predictability, where her husband Joe demands his steak on a Thursday and the only source of entertainment is talking to her kitchen wall. On the other is the deep and heartbreaking aspect of wanting to return to her past, where she felt she had more worth and character. (more...)

The Rose Art Museum Announces Jennie C. Jones as Recipient of 2017 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence Award
by BWW News Desk - Mar 16, 2017

The Rose Art Museum is pleased to name Jennie C. Jones as the recipient of the 2017 Ruth Ann and Nathan Perlmutter Artist-in-Residence Award. Drawing connections between art and music, the Brooklyn-based artist creates visual and sound abstractions that explore intersections between cultural and social histories.

Jones describes her approach as “listening as a conceptual practice.” (more...)

BWW Review: Carmen Cusack Returns to Feinstein's/54 Below with a New Show Demonstrating Her Songwriting Prowess
by Casey Mink - Mar 15, 2017

One generally associates megaphones as the staple of high school gym teachers, used to amplify their punitive requests of portly students to run faster. Naturally, Carmen Cusack, the once-unsung supernova who made her craterous impact on Broadway in last season's BRIGHT STAR, subverted preconceived notions. Slowly making her way to the stage, Cusack began her show crooning into the piece of machinery. If the very first notes of your concert will be heard projected via megaphone, well, you'd be wise to make certain you sound exceptional. That, of course, is a non-issue for Cusack. Following a sold-out engagement at Feinstein's/54 Below last summer, the Tony (and now Grammy) nominee returned to the venue for another four-show run on March 8, and was in her usual sublime voice.
