by Justin J Sacramone - Sep 25, 2014

'It's the language that terrifies me', trembles Anna, a single school teacher, after learning she has been diagnosed with a fatal illness humously known as Acquired Toilet Disease. Acquired Toilet Disease, or ATD, is no laughing matter! Most commonly contracted through public restrooms in school classrooms, ATD is sweeping the nation and spreading faster than a youtube video.

BWW Review: For TheatreWorks Florida's Glorious SWEENEY TODD the Devil is in the Overlooked DetailsBWW Review: For TheatreWorks Florida's Glorious SWEENEY TODD the Devil is in the Overlooked Details
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 18, 2014

Amongst the vast majority of musical theatre devotees, there is little debate that Stephen Sondheim is the greatest writer that the artform has ever known. So, as I sat watching TheatreWorks Florida's soaring Opening Night performance of his darkest masterpiece, SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET, I found my mind consistently going over his three principles of lyric writing: 1) 'Content dictates form.' 2) 'Less is more.' 3) 'God is in the details.' Now, before I go much further, I want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this production, especially the phenomenal voices and inventive staging, and this show is a must see for any local lover of Sondheim's work. I doubt that you will find a better sounding group of actors on an Orlando stage any time soon. Music Director David Foust clearly did incredible work on this production. (more...)

Pretty Yende--a name that in itself brings certain expectations as well as smiles--burst on the New York opera scene at the start of 2013, in a baptism by fire. At just 27, the South African soprano from Piet Retief, Mpumalanga memorably stepped into one of the lead roles in the revival of Rossini's LE COMTE ORY (opposite, no less, star tenor Juan Diego Florez) on short notice.

Michelle Fairley has been such a great addition to the show itself as well as the drama within the show, and it seems she's not going to stop stirring the pot at any time soon. (more...)

BWW Recap: Progress Made on This Week's PARENTHOODBWW Recap: Progress Made on This Week's PARENTHOOD
by Matt Smith - Oct 17, 2014

This season of PARENTHOOD has been definitely packed with enough drama, and the writers are brilliantly beginning to close up storylines while offering us new ones to keep us busy and immersed enough in the show that presumably we forget that it's ending in, like, December/January. It's a smart move, though as you'll see below, I think the new plot lines in the final episodes of the season — not to mention the season's shortened 13-episode run, which this week drops us down to just 9 (single digits, people!) — will seem a bit rushed given the time length.

BWW Reviews: 'Man About Cabaret' Eric Michael Gillett Conveys the Essence of Noel Coward in Charming Show at the Laurie BeechmanBWW Reviews: 'Man About Cabaret' Eric Michael Gillett Conveys the Essence of Noel Coward in Charming Show at the Laurie Beechman
by Billie Roe - Nov 6, 2014

The expression “Man About Town”--commonly defined as a socially active, sophisticated man devoted to the pursuit of pleasure by frequenting fashionable nightclubs, theaters, and restaurants--might perfectly describe the persona of Sir Noel Coward. Known for his acerbic wit, flamboyance, and savoir-faire, Sir Noel is an icon in theatrical history as a celebrated playwright, composer, director, actor, and singer. Could there be a better subject to explore during an evening of cabaret? In his recent run of five shows at the Laurie Beechman Theatre, Man About Town: The Wit and Wisdom of Noel Coward, veteran singer/actor/director Eric Michael Gillett proved he was more than up to the task of paying tribute to the legendary Coward.

BWW Recap: Who Killed Sam on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDERBWW Recap: Who Killed Sam on HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER
by Scott Fullerton - Nov 21, 2014

The winter finale of HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER finally answered the question to the flashbacks we have been watching all season, who killed Sam Keating. The entire season has been teasing as to who actually murdered him. We knew that almost all of Annalise's student interns, (I call them the Scooby gang), are involved in the cover-up from all of the flashbacks of them trying to remove the body and destroy any evidence. We also knew that Rebecca was involved in it, as well as having Sam's blood all over her, and that Asher was the only intern not involved, because he was out looking for the trophy that Michaela stole from him. Just because we saw who was covering the murder up, there was never any clear evidence as to who actually killed Sam. Until now. (more...)

As I've said numerous times in my reviews and recaps, I don't think there is a show on television more important for the future of the arts than SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE. In addition to exposing the public to a much more emotionally honest and raw form of creativity than we are used to seeing in today's overly packaged and focused-grouped world of entertainment, the show also makes stars out of the usually unsung heroes of the artistic community; dancers.

New Brunswick, NJ – To honor the generosity of the Voorhees family, whose major gifts have greatly enriched the arts at Rutgers University, the Zimmerli Art Museum is pleased to present A Place in America: Celebrating the Legacy of Ralph and Barbara Voorhees, on view through February 8, 2015. Featuring a selection of prints and drawings by some of the most important American artists working between 1880 and the late 1940s, the exhibition celebrates places across America from “sea to shining sea.” From quiet rural settings to dramatic views of urban landmarks, from inspiring wilderness vistas to industrial scenes: the exhibition demonstrates how artists helped to define the changing character of America's landscape, both natural and man-made. The exhibition also highlights prints by Arthur Wesley Dow, Stuart Davis, Blanche Lazzell, Louis Lozowick, and John Marin, whose styles influenced the course of American art of the 20th century.
