BWW Review: Fantastic Z's DEVIL BOYS FROM BEYOND a Bit Too Campy
by Jay Irwin - Sep 30, 2016

Fantastic Z Theatre is closing out their season of gay comedy with the campy take on 50's sci-fi, Buddy Thomas and Kenneth Elliott's 'Devil Boys From Beyond'. And while this crazy romp certainly has the fun of their previous shows, at times the camp gets to be a bit much to The Point of lacking focus and it's there where the play suffers. (more...)

BWW Review: Mad Cow's All-Female '1776' is Stunningly Moving, Revolutionary Theatre
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 29, 2016

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary to rethink a centuries-entrenched conception, it must be done with ideas audacious and revolutionary enough to forever upset the status quo. That was true in a small, stuffy Philadelphia room in 1776, and it is true now at Orlando's Mad Cow Theatre. While the newest production from the Church Street company might not have the same lasting impact as the creation of the United States, it is undoubtedly one of the best theatrical productions that Central Florida has seen in recent years.

BWW Review: CASTLES Penetrates as Synaptic Synonymic Sensation Phantasm at Old 505 Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Sep 26, 2016

Pushing the boundaries of the performance art from is no easy task, and neither is adapting the quick-fire connective nature of the brain for the stage, and yet in House of Sands' Castles, Eliza Sanders accomplishes both, and more. In a work all at once intimate, quintessentially Australian, randomised and unbelievably funny, reviewing Castles is not a matter of attributing meaning, but asserting the importance of this inclusion in our arts landscape.

BWW Review: HOLLYWOOD REVISITED at Oxnard Civic Auditorium
by Cary Ginell - Sep 26, 2016

You've seen them. Gaudy costumes worn by Hollywood and Broadway stars, preserved and on display in museums and galleries. It's a great way to witness first-hand the trappings of the pretend, magical worlds brought to us on celluloid, television, and the live stage. But when you see those famous outfits, hanging stiffly on mannequins, you get the sense something is missing. It's as if they were embalmed mummies from ancient Egypt, beautiful but lifeless. That's what makes a show like Hollywood Revisited, which played Sunday afternoon at the Oxnard Civic Auditorium, so valuable and different as a unique piece of show business entertainment. (more...)

BWW Review: Stunning FOLLIES at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis
by Chris Gibson - Sep 20, 2016

While I was watching FOLLIES, I was reminded of our own beloved Fox Theatre, and how it had tread a similar path during the 1970's. Like the fictional Weismann Theatre where this story's action takes place, it had been fallen on hard times, reduced to screening Kung-Fu and exploitation film fare before being renovated and reopened. But there is no restoration in the cards for the Weismann, and the people that come to it for one final celebrated glimpse may be nearing The Point of being past reclamation themselves. This is superior Sondheim, and though it's not revived as often as some of his other works, it's full of the kind of interweaving melodies and motifs that this master composer is so adept at creating. Find out for yourself just how compelling and engaging this musical is by seeing The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis' stunning production that opens their 50th season. (more...)

BWW Review: 6th Annual Ten-Tucky Festival of Shorts
by Keith Waits - Sep 19, 2016

Ten-minute play festivals are often populated by material that cannot be strictly classified as plays. But the academic distinction between sketch and fully formed play may reasonably give way to a simpler, more binary metric: it either works or it doesn't. Some of the finest writing in this sixth year of shorts produced by The Bard's Town feels as if they are either lifted from a longer piece or are the seeds of a larger story. (more...)

BWW Blog: Arielle Jacobs - Flying High, Down Under: Part 7: The First Time is the Hardest
by Guest Blogger: Arielle Jacobs - Sep 16, 2016

It's days like this that I wish someone would just tell me what to do. Tell me what the rules are. Or guidelines. Whatever they're called. As I sit here, bundled up in my comfy clothes and steaming my face, I sit in the knowledge that I'm battling a cold. My neck aches and my ears have been clogged for days. My nose is leaking BEHIND my face. Not out the front, but down back my throat.  The kind of drip down your throat that is just annoying and makes you feel like you've got a sore throat in the morning, but then you drink water and realize it's just the constant drip of liquid making your throat slowly raw.

There is much to love about the Garden Theatre's production of Frank Wildhorn's musical BONNIE & CLYDE; the cast is breathtakingly talented, the set, lighting, and costume designs are gorgeous, and the live (unseen) band is pitch perfect. Unfortunately, there is one major thing not to love about Frank Wildhorn's musical BONNIE & CLYDE, and that is Frank Wildhorn's musical BONNIE & CLYDE. (more...)

BWW Review: Hard Hitting ROYALE at ACT Examines Consequences of Being First
by Jay Irwin - Sep 16, 2016

Let me start, Dear Readers, by saying I have never had an appreciation for boxing. I've just never understood why it's important to find out who can beat up someone else the best or, alternatively, who can take a beating the best. Having said that, the current production of Marco Ramirez's stirring play "The Royale" at ACT is not about boxing. Sure the backdrop of the story is boxing but moreover it's about the choice to take personal groundbreaking victories even in the shadow of danger to your friends and family. And that is a much more interesting fight than who can punch who the hardest. (more...)

BWW Review: LitMoon's THE GLASS MENAGERIE Shows Life After the Bough Breaks
by Maggie Yates - Sep 15, 2016

Litmoon's production captures the resounding void of the Wingfields' desperation. 'The Glass Menagerie's' characters, flawed past self-awareness, anxiously grasp at a lifestyle unavailable to them. The audience champions their hopes while simultaneously recognizing the folly of their untenable desires. Striking and complex, Litmoon's The Glass Menagerie offers a view of the constant regret that haunts those bereft of realistic hopes for a better future. (more...)
