BWW Recap: WESTWORLD Reveals What it All Means
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 23, 2016

Guts, gore, heists, shoot outs, revelations, and one gnarly snake tattoo are just some of what you can find in the fourth and most explosively exciting episode of WESTWORLD to date. The episode, entitled “Dissonance Theory,” already starts laying the firm foundation for where the season is headed, while doing what WESTWORLD does best; satiates your appetite but with such incredible flavors that make you want to come back for more just to confirm its brilliance. “Dissonance Theory,” and what the concept of the title suggests, is that the human mind is constantly trying to find patterns amongst their cognitions and understanding (i.e. how your brain works and what it is understanding) but when a dissonance arrises, there is a need to take action to get rid of said dissonance to return to the peaceful equilibrium of before. As the hosts' world begins to unravel from inside out, and the inner workings of Westworld on every level start exposing their pure selfish corruption, dissonances are cropping up all around at a rate so quick, the possibility attaining pure and consistent cognitions is falling too far out of reach.  (more...)

BWW Review: SWEENEY TODD Slays with Quality
by Katherine Waddell - Oct 20, 2016

This past weekend The Main Stage, Inc. presented Sweeney Todd for just two nights at The Century Center's Bendix Theater. The musical follows Sweeney Todd, formerly known as Benjamin Barker, as he returns to London after a 15-year exile. Todd has returned to exact revenge upon the corrupt Judge Turpin who had him wrongfully imprisoned so he could pursue Todd's beautiful wife. During his quest for revenge, Todd returns to his former career as a barber (with a deadly twist), with the help of Mrs. Lovett, an admirer of Todd's who runs a failing meat-pie shop. (more...)

BWW Review: ACT 1's Outdated ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 16, 2016

Joseph Kesselring's Arsenic and Old Lace, a genteel and sometimes beguiling 'suspense comedy,' is a favorite among the nation's various and sundry community theater companies. And for good reason: It's slyly amusing, despite its age, and it features some genuinely engaging (if somewhat despicable, depending upon your perspective) characters who have entertained audiences for 75 years (it bowed on Broadway in 1941).

BWW Recap: Liza Discovers an Author with a Secret, Michael Urie Returns on YOUNGER
by Matt Smith - Nov 2, 2016

As far as YOUNGER episodes go, this week's installment was pretty HUGE for both Liza and Empirical… in so many more ways than one! Our favorite 40-year-old-posing-as-26 makes a shocking discovery about one of Empirical's esteemed authors, before acquiring their book as her next project (so, good news there!) Bad news is she's still waffling between Josh and Charles, and Radha really enters the picture this week, shaking things up and making it clear to Liza (But don't worry… she's not scurred!) Plus, there are new developments and similarly shocking discoveries made between Maggie and new belle Malkie (including a visit from the ex… dun dun dun), and Josh is desperate to get Liza get kinky in public places. Ooh! All topped off with a stellar guest appearance by one of our favorite Broadway alums! What more could possibly want?! It's all ahead (or behind, depending), so if you're intrigued, please read on!! (more...)

BWW Interview: Kimberly Kiley of RAGTIME at Actors' Repertory Theatre Of Simi
by Cary Ginell - Nov 16, 2016

Everyone knows that the director is the person responsible for the look and content of a musical or play, but once the cast has been selected, sets and props are delivered, and all the technical elements are in place, who puts it all together? The week prior to a show's opening is called 'Tech Week,' a four or five-day period during which all the elements of a production are assembled on stage for the first time. Tech Week marks the transition period between the rehearsal stage and the performance stage of a production. Once the show is underway, it is the job of the stage manager to supervise, coordinate, and maintain all of the sundry elements that make up a production, from lighting, sound, and sets to costume changes, blocking, and all the performers' backstage activity. As we found out, it takes a particular kind of person to become a stage manager. He or she has to be detail oriented, disciplined, unflappable, and resourceful. Kimberly Kiley, who is currently serving as stage manager for the Actors' Repertory Theatre of Simi's production of Ragtime, has all of these attributes and more. We visited her before a performance last weekend and were introduced to the new staging area at the theater where Kiley is stationed during a show. (more...)

BWW Review: MARILYN HORNE SONG CELEBRATION at Zankel Hall Shows What Makes America Great
by Richard Sasanow - Jan 30, 2017

At last month's concert in Carnegie Hall, Joyce DiDonato was glorious musically but less-than-cheery philosophically--and that was before the guy in the White House started taking aim at arts and education funding. Taking the stage at Carnegie's Zankel Hall on Saturday, at THE MARILYN HORNE SONG CELEBRATION, Marilyn Horne was in a feistier frame of mind about the fight for our hearts, minds and souls--though she admittedly hadn't figured out a way for her personally to take on the battle . It seemed to me that the evening, with emerging singers and the great guest, was a pretty good way to get the ball rolling. (more...)

BWW Blog: Amanda Grillo - Understanding Empathy: A Theatre for Community Impact Reflection
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Grillo - Dec 19, 2016

In taking the class this semester, I learned so much about how theatre makes an impact on our community (yes, that is the class title and it is self explanatory). I learned about other theatre companies make their impact such as La Poca Nostra, the Yes Men, and the San Francisco Mime Troupe. I got the chance to research issues affecting our communities and collaborate with my classmates to make art addressing those issues. This show was certainly one for the books. With a minimal amount of rehearsal time, we put this show together within a matter of weeks. Everyone took on a wide array of responsibilities and I couldn't be prouder of my classmates. Here is what some of them had to say about their experiences: (more...)
