BWW Review: The Mint's YOURS UNFAITHFULLY, An Intriguing 1930s Look At Open Marriage
by Michael Dale - Jan 31, 2017

Teetering somewhere between an incisive study of human fidelity and a sexy comedy of manners, Miles Malleson's Yours Unfaithfully is the kind of play that, under different circumstances, might have been made into a classic Hollywood romantic comedy starring Doris Day, Rock Hudson and Tony Randall.

BWW Blog: Christopher Panella - Please Support Straight Plays
by Guest Blogger: Christopher Panella - Jan 30, 2017

We love musicals. Musicals are so common, so known, and so loved. Almost everyone knows of iconic musicals like Wicked and Chicago. Every theater kid knows every word to The Phantom of the Opera. The best part about musicals is that they are universally popular. The idea of a musical is not a niche, cult-followed topic. Musicals are enjoyed by the non-theater people as well. I mean, look at Hamilton. Its popularity beyond the theater community is staggering. But what about The Other Side of theater? What about the side where performers do not break out into song and dance every few minutes, solve their problems with a six-minute tap number, or sing catchy lyrics that stick in the audience's mind for the next few weeks? Yes, I am talking about straight plays. Why don't we hear about their impact and popularity? Why don't I see theater kids running around wearing The Glass Menagerie shirts instead of Dear Evan Hansen? This leads to the basis of this article: let's support straight plays.  (more...)

BWW Review: Fun and Cheeky MATILDA - The Musical Amuses at Segerstrom Center
by Michael L. Quintos - Jan 27, 2017

MATILDA - THE MUSICAL, overall, is genuinely a fun time. It's a cheeky, kid-friendly (and, really, kid-catering) stage musical that has plenty for both kids and their parents to enjoy together. Featuring lively songs by Tim Michin and a witty, yet easily digestible book by Dennis Kelly, MATILDA - THE MUSICAL celebrates how one adorable, truly likable kid ---who, sure, may seem a little odd and different---can overcome a troubled environment and still come out The Other Side a remarkably self-assured, open-minded, and kind-hearted young lady who can fully distinguish right from wrong---while having a bit of naughty fun along the way. The national touring company of the just recently closed Broadway musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's beloved children's novel continues through January 29 in Costa Mesa. (more...)

Audio-Book 'A Sometimes Strange Story' by Uri Norwich is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 9, 2017

Have you ever wondered what would have happened if you took a different turn at some point in your life? If a nineteen-year-old man listened to his instincts and took that different turn in Vienna, his entire life would have changed... A sequence of random encounters leads to unexpected events in his life. He finds himself in the foreign country on The Other Side of the globe. He doesn't know anything about his adoptive land, he is all alone. Within a few short weeks, the man finds a job, a new home, a university to go to, and even a girl. All - without speaking the language. 'If I told my college buddies back in Russia that I slept with an American girl, they would've thought I was out of my mind,' were his thoughts, studying his naked friend peacefully sprawled on the bed next to him. The pace of his life intensifies with every new encounter, until one day, the young man finds himself transplanted from a rural Connecticut town to the Italian city of Milan. He must adapt to yet another country. He is thrown in the midst of other people's lives, and becoming a part of it. A wise scholar once said, 'There is a plan for each one of us outside of our control. From the moment we are born, we are set on our own predetermined road. Anything we would do could help or interfere. It may delay the passage, but we would never stray off its course. We would always come back and move along again.' The author lived through and experienced firsthand situations and places reflected in the novel. Currently, the author lives in a New York City suburb. For more information about 'A Sometimes Strange Story' or the Author Uri Norwich, please contact the Publicist 'high wood publishing new york©' at highwoodpublishingny@gmail.com (more...)

by Gil Kaan - Feb 20, 2017

By the end of the episode, most of those secrets remained unspoken. This might seem frustrating to viewers who just want our favorite characters to open up and share…but at the same time, it is pretty darn realistic. (more...)
