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 Review: CHARLOTTE'S WEB Spins Fun For All at Serenbe Playhouse

A fun, family-friendly way to celebrate Fourth of July weekend was seeing Serenbe Playhouse's production of Joseph Robinette's CHARLOTTE'S WEB, directed by Ryan Oliveti and performed outside at The Animal Village at the Serenbe Inn. The space provided rows of seats beneath trees for shade, as well as blankets in front for children to sit and experience life on the farm up-close with live animals in the background. The play was easily enjoyed by all ages though, with witty remarks by characters like Templeton The Rat and sweet moments of genuine friendship between Wilbur and Charlotte. As Wilbur knowingly says, 'Friendship is one of the most satisfying things in the world.' (more...)

BWW Interview: THE BIKINIS Creators, James Hindman and Ray Roderick
by Sherry Shameer Cohen - Jul 5, 2016

Girl group revue is back by popular demand. Two years ago, the Long Wharf Theatre offered a blast from the past with The Bikinis, James Hindman and Ray Roderick's breezy jukebox revue of '60s and '70s music. The show was loosely based on a true story about senior residents in Florida, who were being pressured to sell their mobile homes to a developer. Instead of a knight in shining armor, a girl group of four women who call themselves The Bikinis come to star in a fundraiser to help the residents pay for their legal fees. This revue, now back at the Long Wharf by popular demand, has a clear narrative that so many people can relate to today, even if they are not retirees who live in a resort. (more...)
