Although the events that transpire in Belleville bear a little more drama, the suspense and fragility of human romance connected audience and actor alike at Old Fitz Theatre for a thrilling weekend in Paris.

BWW Recap: Jon Snow Heads 'Home' in GAME OF THRONES
by Jessica Naftaly - May 2, 2016

Episode two of Game of Thrones just aired tonight and with it, we got a lot of what we had last week, shocking deaths and violence, but we also got the answer to everyone's burning question. Is Jon Snow really dead? The episode, entitled “Home” not only was named so because of the word being dropped quite often in dialogue, but several of our primary characters dealt with their families, identities and “homes”. I would say this is one of the closes instances we've gotten on this show of having the title actually play a key role in the total events of the narrative, but alas, it still struggled to remain thematically relevant, despite it's frequent usage.  (more...)

BWW Reviews: THAT EYE, THE SKY WAXES LYRICAL IN RURAL BAMBOOZLE at New Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Mar 27, 2016

There comes a moment for every child when you realise that the floor is not made of lava, and not because it suits you for it to be carpet so you can stop playing and have dinner, but because lava and carpet are completely different things that can never be the same or cross-mutable. Suddenly your entire scope of possibility changes and you realise you will never make-believe the floor is lava again. That Eye, The Sky is a piece of work nurtured in this very emotion of sad clarity, this point of the mind that reaches its tipping point past imagination into maturity. (more...)
