BWW Review: CINDERELLA WALTZ Offers Fractured Fairy Tale Fun!BWW Review: CINDERELLA WALTZ Offers Fractured Fairy Tale Fun!
by Shari Barrett - Oct 3, 2015

CINDERELLA WALTZ investigates the archetypal origins of the world's more popular fairy tale, contrasting the familiar and charming Perrault version with the darker, more ancient and disturbing tale recorded by the brothers Grimm. Grotesque farce and romantic fantasy blend in a fairy tale for adults. Make no mistake - this is not a typical children's telling in that the script is spattered with some very adult language as we follow the fractured Cinderella fairy tale of a poor servant girl mourning the death of her mother as she dreams of a life of wealth and royalty. And listen closely to see just how many references to other whimsical tales you can catch! (more...)

Steve Martin's THE UNDERPANTS to Open Syracuse Stage's 2015-16 SeasonSteve Martin's THE UNDERPANTS to Open Syracuse Stage's 2015-16 Season
by BWW News Desk - Oct 15, 2015

Syracuse Stage's 15/16 Season starts October 21 with The Underpants, a guffaw inducing comedy from the wild and crazy mind of the incomparable Steve Martin. In Dusseldorf, 1910, a very public wardrobe malfunction (a young woman's underpants fall down at a parade-for the King!) becomes the talk of the town in this ribald update of an uproarious German farce. (Yes, there is such a thing.) Chock-full of sexual innuendo, verbal jousting, and non-stop laughter, The Underpants skewers the absurdity of instant fame. Bill Fennelly (Hairspray, A Midsummer Night's Dream) returns to direct. (more...)
