by Richard Sasanow - Sep 20, 2016

Quick: What film won the Golden Globe for Best Movie in 1997? It was THE ENGLISH PATIENT. But more important for composer Missy Mazzoli and librettist Royce Vavrek, the question is “What film didn't win the Golden Globe in 1997?” The answer (for them, at least) is Lars von Trier's BREAKING The Waves, which they've transformed into an opera of the same name, premiering at Opera Philadelphia, September 22.

Big News and New Partnership Announced for EXIT Theatre and DIVAfest
by BWW News Desk - Oct 31, 2016

EXIT Theatre and DIVAfest are pleased to announce the merger of their organizations. DIVAfest, currently a Company in Residence at the EXIT, will integrate their operations and activities into those of EXIT Theatre and will present work under EXIT Theatre's banner.  DIVAfest was founded in 2002, a special project of EXIT Theatre, in response to a palpable lack of opportunities for female playwrights in the larger theatrical industry. Since then, DIVAfest has produced over 60 new plays and projects by women and provided opportunities in leadership, collaboration, and participation to hundreds of female artists. EXIT Theatre and DIVAfest look forward to two upcoming productions under this new partnership. Terra Incognita: Through The Waves - created in collaboration with UpLift Physical Theatre - opens November 4, 2016 at the EXIT Studio. Through a vocabulary of acrobatics, an all-female cast weaves the tale of a woman lost between the waters of her grief and the mountaintops of her joyful memories, following the disappearance of her soul-mate. Kilgallen/Jones - a new play by Allison Page, who also scribed Hilarity which DIVAfest produced in 2015 - opens March 9, 2017 on EXIT Theatre's mainstage. Inspired by real-life journalist Dorothy Kilgallen, who died under mysterious circumstances shortly after announcing privileged knowledge pertaining to JFK's assassination, Kilgallen/Jones explores the human imperative to investigate and the real (and sometimes imagined) consequences that follow. Additionally, signature monthly offering DIVA or Die Burlesque will continue to delight patrons in the EXIT Cafe on the third Saturday of every month.      Christina Augello, Founder and Artistic Director of EXIT Theatre and DIVAfest, says that she and the rest of her team are enthusiastic about "continuing to support the work of women in the arts and upholding the mission of celebrating female power and creativity and nurturing female artists and allies."  (more...)

BWW Review: Tori Scott Provides Post-Election Catharsis in SEEING DOUBLE at Joe's Pub
by Troy Frisby - Nov 30, 2016

Early on in Tori Scott's SEEING DOUBLE, the woman of the hour deadpanned, 'I've been in a rut since birth.' If that's the case, we should all be so lucky. But on the subject of things that could be going better, throughout Scott's performance at Joe's Pub on November 13, the unofficial theme of the night was, 'Could this year get any worse?' With the election still looming large, Scott took the stage, explaining she'd been looking forward to the show because she was in need of some attention, before adding, 'Then Tuesday happened and I needed group therapy.'

THE FLOOZIES Hit the Fox Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Nov 29, 2016

Just outside the jazz mecca of Kansas City springs liberal oasis Lawrence, Kansas-separated only by The Waves of wheat from the epicenter of the electronic music revolution in Colorado. From Lawrence, it would logically follow that an act could rise to prominence fueled by the swing of Basie, the birth of Charlie Parker's bebop, and the wild frontier of electronica. Born in funk and bred in the digital age, live electronic duo The Floozies have burst onto the scene at a time when the industry needed them the most. (more...)

BWW Review: DISNEY'S THE LITTLE MERMAID - Awash With Problems

BWW Review: THE FLYING DUTCHMAN Vanishes Too Quickly from Austin, TX
by Amy Bradley - Nov 17, 2016

Presented during The Austin's Opera's 30th anniversary season, THE FLYING DUTCHMAN commands the historic Long Center's stage with a diverse, collective cast and belting operatic sequences. The origins of the story of The Flying Dutchman are rather skewed between timelines. The story first appeared in Travels in various parts Europe, Asia, and Africa in 1790 by John MacDonald, and again when Richard Wagner's operatic rendition came to life in 1843, after being adapted from an episode of Heinrich Heine's satirical novel The Memoirs of Mister von Schnabelewopski. More modernly, the story of The Flying Dutchman is told through the highly loved film series, The Pirates of The Carribean. Regardless of the interpretations by creative minds, one fact remains true - The Flying Dutchman refers to a ghostly ship destined to sail the seas for all eternity. Richard Wagner's rendition, sure to please both critics and audiences alike, is bringing this haunted tale to life with the reputation of precision that precedes The Austin Opera. (more...)
