BWW Blog: Director Gary Condes on Neil LaBute's SOME GIRL(S)
by Guest Blogger: Gary Condes - Jul 8, 2016

When I was first approached to direct this play I wasn't sure I wanted to do it. Some Girl(s) has a main character who appears, on first and second reading, to be a prize cock who exhibits a host of unflattering male traits. On the page he was not a likeable man. Add to that the play's simplistic and seemingly undramatic form, basically four two-handers in a row taking place in one hotel room - I didn't respond warmly to it. (more...)

by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 26, 2016

Though it was hot and muggy on the evening of July 24th, 2016, the jam-packed audience at Manhattan Movement & Arts Center was grinning agog like newly minted parents infatuated with their brood.

BWW Review: CATF THE WEDDING GIFT is Visually Stunning, but Difficult to Decipher
by Johnna Leary - Jul 21, 2016

The Wedding Gift, a world premiere play at the Contemporary American Theater Festival, is a visual feast for audience members, but due to the storytelling method, many audience members are unable to understand the imaginative story.

BWW Blog: Christopher Panella - Summertime Boredom: Overcoming the Plague of Laziness
by Guest Blogger: Christopher Panella - Jul 14, 2016

Ah, summer. A time for rest, relaxation, fun, and as of last week, catching virtual Pokemon in a multitude of locations. Of course, Pokemon Go can't make up for total boredom of summer. Yes, summer is a great time to accomplish activities that just don't fit into our school year rut. However, many of us fill our summers with naps and Netflix-binging and video games (and reading, right? Especially plays like 4000 Miles) which is not always the best idea. Thus, I present a guide to overcoming the plague of laziness that we all face during summer. (more...)

BWW Interview: MONSTAH BLACK, The Interview. Part II
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 14, 2016

Well, yeah. I guess I am self-made. Because - thinking in terms of what my goals have been all my life - I've had very specific ideas around what I've wanted to do since I was about three. I can remember back to the day, the time of day, what I was doing, when the light bulb went off and I said to myself, "That's what I want to do." I pretty much focused on that. I said it on that day and I've gotten to The Point where I'm in the middle of it happening. It's hinting towards what I see, what my goals have been. But it's not out of reach. It could happen. It's just a matter of putting the time into that and making it happen. It has happened already and now it's about allowing it to happen again and maybe getting more exposure to let it expand. My earliest inspiration is pretty much what helped shape myself into what I am. I can pinpoint who those people are and at some point I allowed it to… I let those landmarks inspire, I held onto them, and continued to step forward as the man. But it pretty much started with the Sonny and Cher show. (more...)
