BWW Review: CABARET Makes For A Truly Beautiful Theatrical ExperienceBWW Review: CABARET Makes For A Truly Beautiful Theatrical Experience
by Rachel Weinberg - Feb 12, 2016

The touring production of Roundabout Theatre Company's CABARET dazzles just as much as it did on Broadway--where it was a critical and commercial success both from 1998-2004 and more recently, when it was remounted from March 2014-March 2015. Now Chicago audiences have the opportunity to witness original director Sam Mendes and co-director/choreographer Rob Marshall's stunning, beautifully constructed musical revival--undoubtedly one of the best I've ever seen. Robert Brill's Broadway set design is replicated almost exactly here, setting the stage with a powerful mix of glitz and decrepitness. The split-level stage showcases a large, lopsided frame with bright shining bulbs--though some are conspicuousness missing. Like John Kander and Fred Ebb's musical itself (with book by Joe Masteroff), this tour staging captures the vivacious and entertaining atmosphere of 1930s Berlin while also allowing us to clearly see the cracks beneath the surface. William Ivey Long's masterful costumes also strike this balance. And, of course, so do the performances. When the Kit Kat Klub ladies (portrayed here by Alison Ewing, Margaret Dudasik, Hillary Ekwall, Aisling Halpin, and Dani Spieler) walk onstage during CABARET's famous opening number "Willkommen," they execute their choreography with precision--but the looks of disdain and apathy on their faces indicate they'd rather be elsewhere. And yet, these captivating performances keep audiences engaged. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Feb 11, 2016

?Lee Blessing's Two Rooms focuses on the relationship of Michael, an American professor kidnapped by political terrorists in Beirut, and his wife Lainie, who has imprisoned herself in a bare room to share in his captivity. Blindfolded Michael (Olubajo Sonubi) dictates love letters to his wife (Candace Mabry) as she struggles to deal with her loneliness and fear in the wake of his uncertain return. Government policy prevents negotiation for his life, and this inaction is what crusading reporter Walker Harris (Aaron Goodson) tries to leverage to get Lainie to speak out against government policy, despite the attempts of her State Department handler Ellen VanOss (Aretta Baumgartner) to keep her in check. Lainie is caught in the push and pull of her own emotions and outside forces, yet fettered by her own grief.  (more...)

K.B. Beaumaaks Reveals THE PREAH SECRETSK.B. Beaumaaks Reveals THE PREAH SECRETS
by BWW News Desk - Feb 11, 2016

Port Royal Exotic Animal Hospital (PREAH) is more than a place where top-notch veterinarians treat animals of all shapes and sizes. The clinic, nestled in a wealthy southwest Florida community, provides the backdrop for a debut novel packed with secrets, lies and murder. Clinic owners Dr. Carston Spencer and his wife, Madison, hobnob with the best of society in Port Royal, but few residents know about the skeletons in their closet. And the drama doesn't stop there. 'The PREAH Secrets' features one twist after another. Although Carston has been sober for 14 years, he lost his first wife and children thanks to drug addiction. And Madison, while playing the doting wife, is considering an affair with a hunky young cowboy who works at the clinic and is an amazing kisser but thinks she should wait until her divorce is final first. She discovers that Carston is keeping another secret - this time from her and has been looking into selling the clinic, a deal worth millions because of the land. Rumors of an incestuous affair involving two sisters and their father figure prominently in their self-defense claim in a trial over the murder of a clinic staff member's father. And the sensational nature of the trial may put Carston over the edge. But anything can happen when the state's attorney, sheriff's deputy, businessmen, ranch hands and a high-powered real estate agency are involved. An exotic bird breeder is just one of the colorful characters in this engrossing novel, the author's first. One of her relationships provided inspiration for The Story. K.B. Beaumaaks, the first in her close-knit Catholic family to leave her state to attend college, moved to Europe and traveled the world with a military spouse. She worked in medicine for more than 30 years before beginning to write 'The PREAH Secrets,' which is her first novel. Beaumaaks and her current husband, Allan, a former F-16 pilot with the Royal Danish Air Force now a commercial pilot, also own three pizza restaurants. Their life in Florida includes rescue dogs: a Pug named Mushey and an English Bull Dog named Maggie Moo. For additional information, please visit www.kbbeaumaaks.com The PREAH Secrets K.B.
