BWW Reviews: DO I HEAR A WALTZ Plays A Flat TuneBWW Reviews: DO I HEAR A WALTZ Plays A Flat Tune
by Harmony Wheeler - Oct 7, 2014

When Broadway actress Emily Skinner takes the stage and opens 42nd Street Moon's current offering, the next two hours look bright and worthwhile. Venice, Italy, as displayed on stage by set designer Hector Zavala promises magical, mystical miracles. Yet as the musical progresses, rather slowly at that, the script turns Skinner's immediately likeable character into a flawed one, condemned for what may seem to many like reasonable judgment calls.

by BWW News Desk - Nov 19, 2014

Seattle—This January, Seattle Opera heats up the winter with one of the most fiery melodramas of all time: Tosca. In this tale, an opera diva must save the man she loves from the clutches of the lecherous police chief whose lust for The Leading Lady is as strong as his hunger for power. The ultimate, high-stakes love triangle takes audiences on a full-throttle ride toward a shocking and heartbreaking conclusion. (more...)

BWW Reviews: END OF THE RAINBOW Falls Short at ICTBWW Reviews: END OF THE RAINBOW Falls Short at ICT
by Don Grigware - Feb 23, 2015

When I first heard that Peter Quilter's End of the Rainbow, the story of the demise of Judy Garland during her gig in December, 1968 at Talk of the Town, London, was going to be produced at ICT, Long Beach, I remember thinking 'They'd better get a super dynamic actress. Not everyone can play Judy Garland!' Whether you believe that the events that happen onstage really did occur seems irrelevant in ICT's production; what is all wrong is the casting. Unfortunately, Gigi Bermingham, a fine actress/singer, just does not make the cut. Within five minutes of her first entrance, I saw a woman playing an actress/singer with emotional problems, but that woman might as well be herself; it is not Judy Garland. (more...)

by Jay Irwin - Feb 23, 2015

If you read my previous review, Dear Readers, of SMT's production of "Sweet Charity" you'll know that I already had the occasion this weekend of a show where The Leading Lady just didn't connect for me. Well, that seems to be a trend as the 5th Avenue Theatre's current production of "Carousel" also had a leading lady who was lacking. There's plenty of good things happening in the show but their Julie Jordan (Laura Griffith) came across as emotionless and stone faced making me wonder why or even if she was falling in love.

Few directors and choreographers can get the sort of performance Kathleen Marshall drew out of Sutton Foster in the 2011 revival of ANYTHING GOES; few can get them to keep going, to push through an eight-minute act closer, with hefty tapping and belting. Fewer still can stitch it all up into one of the most rousing, palpitation-inducing musical moments in decades. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Apr 2, 2015

Hillbarn Theatre, the Peninsula's premier community theatre company, concludes its 2014-2015 season with Kander and Ebb's award-winning musical, Curtains. From the creative team behind Chicago and Cabaret - and a book by Rupert Holmes - Curtains is a hilariously entertaining whodunit with a clever and contagiously catchy toe-tapping score. It's opening night at Boston's Colonial Theatre and The Leading Lady has mysteriously died on stage, leaving the cast and crew as suspects. Local detective Frank Cioffi, a theater fan and amateur actor, arrives to conduct the investigation. As the body count rises and secrets spill, Cioffi becomes more and more involved in saving the musical than solving the case. Curtains debuted on Broadway in 2007 and was nominated for eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Original Score. Curtains will run May 7 -31, 2015 at Hillbarn Theatre (1285 East Hillsdale Blvd., Foster City). Performances are Thursdays-Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Press night for Curtains will be on Friday, May 8, 2015. Single tickets range in price from $23 - $42 and are available now by calling 650.349.6411 ext. 2 or visiting www.hillbarntheatre.org. (more...)

by Jeff Davis - Apr 17, 2014

There's a great Hollywood myth about the film version of The Color Purple. The beloved classic about African-American women was directed by the very male and very white Steven Spielberg, but he allegedly almost quit the project days before shooting was to begin. According to legend, Steven called the film's producer, Quincy Jones, a few days before shooting to voice his doubts about the project. 'I don't think I should direct this,' Steven said. 'I'm a white Jewish guy from California. What do I know about African-American women from the South?' To this, Quincy replied, 'Steven, are you an alien? Because you directed E.T., and I think that was pretty good.' Spielberg stayed on as director, and the film was a huge success that earned 11 Oscar nominations. (more...)
