CABARET: Searing and Sexy Tale for our Times Now Thru July 17
by Linda Hodges - Jun 25, 2016

San Francisco's Orpheum Theatre plays host to the provocative and still darkly daring, Cabaret now through July 17. Set in 1931 Berlin, on the cusp of all that was to come with the rise of the Nazis, the Kander and Ebb musical revolves around the Kit Kat Club and its cast of characters who are determined to ignore the outside world. 'We have no troubles here! Here, life is beautiful,' shouts the garishly made-up emcee. He and the club's performers do their best to convince us that indeed, 'life is a cabaret' and, for a moment in time, it seems to be true. Yet they set aside the warning signs at their own peril. Coming directly from Broadway and originally directed by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, SHNSF's Cabaret is a spectacular sleight of hand, giving us sinfully sexy performances even as the real depravity lies in wait like spider outside the doors of the Kit Kat Club.

BWW Review: A.D. Players' LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL Is the Theatrical Equivalent to Curling Up With a Good Book
by Natalie de la Garza - Jun 24, 2016

LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL is quite the curiosity -- a musical that isn't particularly enhanced or defined by its music. But though the music may be mostly forgettable, the voices in the A.D. Players' production are not. Neither are the performances. It is the cast that ultimately elevates this admittedly simplistic but feel-good show to one of the must-sees of the summer. (more...)

Richard Singer Pens Memoir on Drug Addiction
by BWW News Desk - Jul 5, 2016

Richard Singer will be releasing his new book, Eastern Wisdom Western Soul in August of 2016 by Devorss Publications in California. Mr. Singer is a recovering drug addict who was once homeless, hopeless, penniless and suicidal. His journey of recovery has not been easy, however he continues to spread a message of hope. Richard states that, 'I do not want to waste another second of life. I will do anything to help those suffering out there. I know how it was personally and I want to help in any possible way.' Mr. Singer's raw and miraculous story recently went viral on Facebook and it is currently awaiting publication by the world's largest online addiction resource. Richard Singer's books have won awards and he has sold the rights in many different countries throughout the world. They are also translated into several different languages. His books have been reviewed and featured in many outlets including BBC in London, Publisher's weekly, Library Journal and Martha Stewart's Body and Soul Magazine. Richard wrote and published a majority of his books while living in the Cayman Islands, however he has now returned to the United States. Mr. Singer states that, 'My books are not only for reading, they are meant to be lived.' In addition he states that, 'My passion and purpose in life is to help human beings in anyway possible.' Eastern Wisdom Western Soul is your personal guide to living a mindful life. It is easily understood, non technical, and written in a style that is easily read. It teaches the reader to access their genuine being that lies deep within the soul. This little manual provides the reader with the knowledge and practical skills to detach from the confines of the ego and dive into the ecstasy of the authentic self. It also includes the original interpretation of the 12 steps based on Eastern philosophy. Library Journal states, 'This little book has a definite place on the library shelf. What makes his book interesting is that-in an Asian context-the quotations are pan-cultural; that is, Chinese, Buddhist, Japanese, and Hindu sources stand side by side, implying, probably rightly, that all of Asian thought, considered together, is characteristically different from Western ways of thinking.'

The Making of America's Musical- 1776: The Story Behind the Story
by Jeffrey Kare - Jul 4, 2016

As America celebrates its 240th Birthday today, let's talk about what is probably one of the greatest musicals ever written, and it only came about 46 years before Hamilton. 1776 dramatizes the story of how John Adams was able to persuade his colleagues to vote for American independence as well as signing the Declaration of Independence. While the musical does dramatize the most important event in American history, the story behind the musical is probably just as interesting. (more...)

BWW Review: RING OF FIRE, Johnny Cash Jukebox Musical, Delights at Porthouse
by Roy Berko - Jul 11, 2016

Johnny Cash, 'The Man in Black,' was noted as a somber singer of such songs as 'I Walk the Line,' 'If I Were a Carpenter,' and 'Ring of Fire.' The latter was chosen as the title for Richard Maltby, Jr.'s jukebox musical, now on stage at Porthouse Theatre, which loosely centers on the trials and tribulations of Cash's life. While not autobiographical, per se, there is enough of the tale of the man to gain an understanding of Cash, his music, his strong belief in social causes, and his personal problems. (more...)
