BWW Review: William Shakespeare's THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR Entertains at Austin's Historic Scottish Rite Theatre
by Amy Bradley - Sep 6, 2016

Now playing in Austin's oldest playhouse, The Scottish Rite Theater, THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR delights theatre goers with its gender-bending cast and lively performance. Austin's Scottish Rite Theater is a most appropriate venue for such a play to be presented, giving the audience a passage through time within the Masonic grand hall adorned with decorative antiques around the house. THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, written by none other than William Shakespeare, commands any space with a high level of detail, and Scottish Rite Theater fits the bill.  Given the historic nature of the theater itself, first opening in 1871 as a German Opera house, the play THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR was interestingly first published 269 years prior. The historic location introduces the audience immediately into another age and lends to the other worldly tone of the play's presentation. The experience within this show begins before The Lights are up on the stage - a group of 'merry' players entertain the excited audience as they file in to find their seats. A bar, The Garter Inn, has an innkeeper polishing glassware as would any restauranteur on a Sunday afternoon. The mood is set well by The Weird Sisters Women's Theater Collective and when the curtain rises, the audience can disconnect and journey back into 15th century England. (more...)

BWW Review: GLORIA is a Sensation, Though No Place to Call Home at Griffin Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Sep 6, 2016

The strength of good theatre is its ability to traverse through a range of emotions, bringing along an audience who can explore different facets of their spectrum of feeling and understanding. The best theatre, can take you so deep into one emotion you fear as an audience member you might not come out, and this is the incredible talent of the team behind Griffin Theatre Company's latest premiere, Gloria. Australian work that makes no attempt to relocate itself, justify its idiosyncrasies, or hold back on keeping the audience in the thrill of it, Gloria is theatre with no fear and no fulcrum.

BWW Feature: Jeremy Seghers Brings to Life a DRACULA You've Never Seen
by Kimberly Moy - Sep 28, 2016

What does an antique store and vampires have in common? Both will give you the creeps. Walking into Carmine Boutique you would probably look over your shoulder several times as you peruse the shop's collection of skulls and taxidermied items. Carmine Boutique is described as an 'antique, oddities, taxidermy shop with an Edwardian fetish club.' That strange feeling is exactly what Jeremy Seghers felt and immediately sparked the inspiration for producing his immersive staging of DRACULA. (more...)

BWW Review: Catch The 'Jersey Boys' While You Can
by BWW Staff - Sep 26, 2016

To call JERSEY BOYS a 'jukebox musical' is downright myopic, as underneath the musical's cotton-candy pop hits lies a piercing story of ambition, love, drugs, sex, greed, failures, triumphs, and yes, family values. However, it would take more than a fanatic mind to look beyond those monster hits to see the real heart of the show--one that tells of realities past that still ring true in today's cutthroat music industry.

BWW Interview: Ben Vereen of STEPPIN' OUT at The Grand 1894 Opera House
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Sep 23, 2016

There's not much one can say when you look at the resume of Ben Vereen. I have to admit I thought the email to interview Mr. Vereen was a hoax or a vile trick someone was playing on me. Now the reason I say this is because he is one of my idols and reasons I studied musical theatre in college and left to go to NYC to work professionally. We are familiar with his work with Bob Fosse as the Leading Player in PIPPIN and as Judas in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR but Mr. Vereen still continues to give us the ole razzle dazzle on the stage and on the screen. He's starred in 9 Broadway shows, has received the coveted Antionette Perry Award (The Tony), a Drama Desk Award, and a Prism Award. Nominated for an NAACP Image Award, starred in 30 plus movies and television shows, and has a huge crossover career. Ben Vereen hit the scene in Martha Graham's PRODIGAL SON in 1965 and he's been working ever since. I had the esteemed pleasure to sit and talk about his illustrious career and the current projects he's working on currently. (more...)

BWW Blog: Christopher Castanho - New Musical: Come From Away
by Christopher Castanho - Sep 21, 2016

This production is a perfect example of why I am enamored with Theatre and Art, and why I am proud to be part of this community. The show not only shared a historical event but gifted us with sharing the power of empathy. The love and selflessness the citizens of Gander and Newfoundland had for all of the foreign travelers is astonishing. The locals 'took in' and fed 6,579 stranded passengers, which was half the size of the town's population. (more...)

BWW Review: GYPSY at Music Theatre Of Connecticut
by Melinda Zupaniotis - Sep 19, 2016

With a minimalist set depicting an abandoned stage - brick wall, ladder, random set pieces, and a piano - Music Theatre of Connecticut begins its 30th season with the iconic musical, Gypsy. Written in 1959, Gypsy harnesses the dream-team creative talents of music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and book by Arthur Laurents, plus the original production was directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins. All of these legends combined certainly raises the bar for expectation, and therefore, this show can be a difficult one for any theatre to produce. All in all, MTC did a good job of presenting this whirlwind piece. You should go! (more...)

BWW Review: LETTERS TO LINDY Fascinates in Tell-All on Australia at Seymour Centre
by Brodie Paparella - Sep 19, 2016

You could be guaranteed, no matter where you went or who you were with that at the time her disappearance went public, the circumstances around the death of baby Azaria Chamberlain was the topic of every conversation in Australia. Opinions polarised around the involvement of her mother, Lindy Chamberlain whom some believed to be the fame-hungry, cold-hearted murderer, others the victim of a tragic freak accident involving a dingo and the phrase that became famous the world over. Either way, scrutiny upon Lindy, who was given a life sentence before being released four years later upon the discovery of further evidence. Whilst living between nationwide roles of villain and victim, Lindy received upwards of 20,000 letters. Many years later, with Lindy remarried and living in America, Australian playwright Alana Valentine was granted the ability to write a play based on this mass of correspondence and Lindy's experience. Letters to Lindy is a remarkable, surprising and touching reflection not so much on Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton herself, but on the impassioned public who one way or another found her so easy to relate to.

by Joseph Harrison - Sep 19, 2016

Musicals have an amazing way of transporting an audience to exciting, sometimes magical places. You might find yourself in the middle of a romantic kingdom, on the rooftops of turn-of-the-century London, or in the catacombs of a French opera house. But when The Lights come up on the latest show at the Broad Brook Opera House, audiences find they have been transported to a place that is, well, a little less magical - the Armadillo Acres Trailer Park in Starke, Florida.

BWW Review: Disorienting Play, Tour-de-Force Performance: THE OTHER PLACE at The REP
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Sep 12, 2016

It is a tour-de-force for the actress who portrays Juliana. Juliana is called on to deliver a huge range of emotions, sharp at some times, pathetic at others. She must be violent, querulous, authoritative, analytical, disoriented, witty, nicotine-deprived, paranoid, serene ... etc., etc., etc. She must even wolf down what looks like a complete Chinese carryout dinner. Julia-Ann Elliott seems to have this mercurial role firmly in hand. (more...)

BWW Review: THE TOTALITARIANS is Razor Sharp Side-Splittingly Funny Satire
by Frank Benge - Sep 12, 2016

THE TOTALITARIANS is a new play by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb that had its world premiere in 2014. It is a satirical comedy that takes a behind the scenes look at modern politics and how a speech writer can make or break someone running for public office. Although the play is about a woman running for Attorney General in Nebraska, the play shines a bright light on the current political campaign here in America examining just how easy it is to sway the populace with unsubstantiated facts and catchy slogans. It also happens to be one of the sharpest satires since the days of Jules Feiffer. (more...)
