by BWW News Desk - Sep 11, 2014

In 1940s New York, the performer who everyone wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins, an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect. Based on a true story, Glorious! is Peter Quilter's hilarious, Olivier-nominated comedy that invites us into the world of this New York socialite of great passion, considerable wealth and zero talent who fancied herself an opera diva. Richard Israel directs a four-week run at International City Theatre, opening Oct. 10. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Sorcery from DiDonato and English Concert at Carnegie Hall in Handel's ALCINABWW Reviews: Sorcery from DiDonato and English Concert at Carnegie Hall in Handel's ALCINA
by Richard Sasanow - Oct 31, 2014

The great mezzo Joyce DiDonato stripped for her art at Sunday's wonderful performance of Handel's ALCINA with the English Concert under conductor Harry Bicket. For the first act, when she was still at the height of her powers as a sorceress, she came out in a gorgeous black and gray gown with the puffy sleeves she favors. Act II, she lost the sleeves but not the attitude, as her power waned. For the final act, powerless, she lost her petticoat and showed some leg. Oh yes: She sounded glorious all the while. (more...)

If you're tired of everyone gushing about how THE WALKING DEAD is the best show on television, you probably won't enjoy this recap. When the creators say that each episode will get better and better, they weren't lying. It is almost ludicrous how good this season is already. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Historic INTO THE WOODS Reunion featuring Sondheim, Lapine and Original B'way Cast Wows FansBWW Reviews: Historic INTO THE WOODS Reunion featuring Sondheim, Lapine and Original B'way Cast Wows Fans
by Michael L. Quintos - Nov 10, 2014

The historic reunion---formatted as part talk-show, part concert---featured not only its creators Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine waxing nostalgic about the making of this beloved show, but also had several members of the Original Broadway cast including Bernadette Peters, Joanna Gleason, Chip Zien, Robert Westenberg, Kim Crosby, Danielle Ferland, and Ben Wright---all performing together on the same stage for the first time in years. Humorist and CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Mo Rocca served as the evening's wry, very amiable host and moderator. The results? Mind-blowingly awesome... not only for the incredible musical performances given by the reunited cast, but also for all the dishy, humorous, and, at times, emotionally-tinged inside info shared by the musical's genius collaborators.

BWW Reviews: MOON OVER BUFFALO Shows Georgetown Palace's Gift for Backstage ComediesBWW Reviews: MOON OVER BUFFALO Shows Georgetown Palace's Gift for Backstage Comedies
by Jeff Davis - May 1, 2014

If you saw Georgetown Palace's recent production of Lend Me a Tenor (or if you didn't, for that matter), you have good reason to see Moon Over Buffalo, now in its final week of performances. The similarities between the two shows are easy to pinpoint. They're both by Ken Ludwig. They're both backstage farces. They both involve mistaken identities. They both easily qualify as 'door-slamming comedies.' (Their sets even have the same number of doors). And they're booth hysterical. The Palace's gift for zany, over the top comedy is back on display with Moon Over Buffalo, and once again, the audience is left in stitches. (more...)

BWW Recap: AGATHA CHRISTIE's BIG FOUR Strike Again in Poirot MysteryBWW Recap: AGATHA CHRISTIE's BIG FOUR Strike Again in Poirot Mystery
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Jul 30, 2014

PBS' Masterpiece Mystery raises the curtain on the final episodes of their adaptations of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot adventures, starring David Suchet, with their 90 minute version of THE BIG FOUR, based on a novel originally penned by Christie in 1927. However, anyone familiar with the novel should be prepared for significant plot changes and a sentimentally-tinged (but underused) cast of characters in this production, which is indeed theatrically over the top. And for one key SPOILER ALERT: despite the episode's initial framing, Poirot does not die, though anyone worth their Christie salt should be able to see through this from the outset. (more...)
