BWW Review: A CLOSER WALK WITH PATSY CLINE is an intimate tribute to a musical giant.
by Lacey Cannon Gonzales - Jul 27, 2017

Considered by many to be one of the top country artists of all time, Patsy Cline was a pioneer for women in country music and as a crossover artist. Her story is one of personal struggle and determination, overcoming obstacles from poverty to a devastating car accident; but none of that comes to mind when thinking of this country music legend. What does is her tough as nails resolve, smiling face, and emotionally charged voice that has sold millions of records and is one of the reasons most country artists count her as a major influence.

by Kristen Morale - Jul 26, 2017

Written by Tom Stoppard, directed by Cheryl Faraone and presented by the Potomac Theatre Project as a start to its wondrous 31st season, Arcadia truly tests the limits of what constitutes a good show by not only compelling the audience to listen and understand, but also to feel and experience: a mix that makes for one spectacular theatrical experience.

BWW Review: The MUNY's Amazing and Wonderful THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN
by Chris Gibson - Jul 25, 2017

Dick Scanlan (revised book and additional lyrics) deserves a hand for the long process that led to a reinvigorated and refocused version of Meredith Willson's THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN. A few years ago he started tinkering with this venerable classic, having workshops and readings before finally hitting the stage. Scanlan retains more than a half dozen of the original numbers, and adds some of Willson's trunk songs, as well as some songs written for the movie, to flesh out this tale, which truly highlights The Life of Molly Brown in more accurately historical fashion. It's the current production playing at the MUNY, and it's a breath of fresh air, led by Beth Malone's scintillating performance, and staged with a scope that opens the show up like a piece of Colorado real estate. It's an invigorating must-see! (more...)
