BWW Review: NAKED AS A GAYBIRD is a Tour de Force Tour of One Man's JourneyBWW Review: NAKED AS A GAYBIRD is a Tour de Force Tour of One Man's Journey
by Frank Benge - Nov 9, 2015

The journey of every gay person is different and, in ways, the same. The hurts, the emotional scars and the retrospectively funny stories are all part of the baggage of every gay person and part of what makes us The Survivors that stand here today. In NAKED AS A GAYBIRD, writer and performer Jay Byrd starts the tale of his journey by literally dragging that baggage on stage and then proceeding to unpack it. In turns, his story is touching, hilarious, painful… and at every moment, damn entertaining. (more...)

BWW Review: A BOX OF YELLOW STARS Shines Brightly at Theatre WorksBWW Review: A BOX OF YELLOW STARS Shines Brightly at Theatre Works
by Joseph Baker - Nov 23, 2015

Produced by the Women's Theatre Festival of Memphis, Natalie Parker-Lawrence's A BOX OF YELLOW STARS is a play inspired by true events -- one man (we never know his name) rescues fifteen women from the horrors of the Holocaust by . . . marrying each one and taking her beyond the reach of the Nazis. I only had a sketchy knowledge of what Ms. Parker-Lawrence was attempting in this play, and knowing practically nothing else, I questioned what her approach would be. (At one point I imagined a grim line-up of fifteen women relating horrific experiences, and that would have been a torturous experience indeed.) What she has accomplished is a surprisingly balanced piece: She wisely utilizes humor and dry wit to leaven her characters' painful, sometimes long-buried recollections. (more...)

BWW Review: IN THE HEART OF THE SEA is Beautiful, but Depthless Whale TaleBWW Review: IN THE HEART OF THE SEA is Beautiful, but Depthless Whale Tale
by Matt Tamanini - Dec 14, 2015

In drama, there are three types of conflict: man versus man, man versus self, and man versus nature. In Ron Howard's new film, IN THE HEART OF THE SEA, Chris Hemsworth and Broadway favorite Benjamin Walker face all three types of conflicts as they battle a vengeful white whale. Loosely based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Nathaniel Philbrick, the film tells the story of the Whaleship Essex, which served as partial inspiration for the Herman Melville classic, MOBY DICK. Though Melville's novel is filled with Romantic language and rich, nuanced themes of class, obsession, and race, IN THE HEART OF THE SEA is a slick, depthless film that removes nearly all historical accuracy from this harrowing and terrifying tale. However, what the film lacks in emotion and authenticity, it nearly makes up for in visual majesty and grandeur. (more...)

by Gunnar Larson - Dec 13, 2015

What sets THE LAST MAN ON EARTH apart from every other show on the air is its seamless mixing of rapturously funny comedy with its bleak, post-apocalyptic setting. The show is able to make that distinction and allow comedy to seep into a dark setting through distancing its characters from the tragedy that surrounds them. Sure, they're the last people on Earth. But, as Todd says tonight, “I didn't know any of them in the Morgue! I knew [Gordon]!” (more...)
