Adapted from a book-length poem written in and about the Roaring Twenties, Andrew Lippa's THE WILD PARTY tells the story of one wild evening in the Manhattan apartment shared by Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and a vaudeville clown. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness (mirroring the time in which they live), they decide to throw a party to end all parties!


Tony Winner Daisy Eagan and Jordan Kai Burnett Present DAISY AND JORDAN'S SUNDAY BRUNCH OF SHAME EPISODE 2, 3/15Tony Winner Daisy Eagan and Jordan Kai Burnett Present DAISY AND JORDAN'S SUNDAY BRUNCH OF SHAME EPISODE 2, 3/15
by BWW News Desk - Mar 4, 2015

Rockwell: Table and Stage presents Daisy and Jordan's Sunday Brunch of Shame, a brand new comedy talk show with music. Do you like show tunes AND pop music? Do you like brunch? Did you have a little too much fun last night? Do you like to laugh? If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions then you won't want to miss Daisy and Jordan's Sunday Brunch of Shame. Fresh from their night out the night before, Tony winner, Daisy Eagan and future Tony winner, Jordan Kai Burnett will regale audiences with tales of their wild romps, inappropriate dealings with some of Hollywood's top D-listers, and impart the wisdom they picked up along the way (Legal note: Daisy and Jordan are not liable for any of the 'wisdom' imparted should such 'wisdom' lead to unwise decisions on the part of any audience member.). Daisy and Jordan's Sunday Brunch of Shame is the perfect antidote to a night of bad decisions. Complete with a semi-nude hunk, great tunes, bottomless brunch libations, and pop quizzes with prizes! (Legal note: Appearance of 'semi-nude hunk' contingent on the procurement of a hunk who doesn't mind being abjectly objectified for the pleasure of Daisy and Jordan.). This show is not suitable for children under the age of 16, unless that's just what kind of parent you are in which case you do you. Guests who come wearing clothes from the night before get a special door prize. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THE HISTORY BOYS at WOOLFE STREET PLAYHOUSEBWW Reviews: THE HISTORY BOYS at WOOLFE STREET PLAYHOUSE
by haydn haring - Mar 2, 2015

It won't stop raining. Whenever I'm at Woolfe Street, we stand outside, rain or shine and talk. Before a show, on breaks, during intermission and after. We usually discuss the play in question, whether it is a performance or rehearsal. Most of us have worked together. If we haven't worked together, then we've seen each other perform. And we're all local. We're talking about more theatre. There's something ancient about it, especially when its raining. That area of downtown Charleston reminds me a lot of London- kind of industrial- with the cold and the smell of rain. Whenever I'm there (or in any theater really) I feel like I'm a part of something lasting, something bigger than myself. Sierra- the stage manager- usually calls us inside and so it goes. Anyway, its familiar. And its raining. (more...)

InDepth InterView: Mary Testa Talks New Album HAVE FAITH, Upcoming Concerts & Reflects On Theatre CareerInDepth InterView: Mary Testa Talks New Album HAVE FAITH, Upcoming Concerts & Reflects On Theatre Career
by Pat Cerasaro - Jan 2, 2015

Today we are talking to an instantly recognizable stage stalwart who has lit up Broadway and beyond for more than three decades since her debut in William Finn's IN TROUSERS - the one and only Mary Testa. Discussing all aspects of her exemplary new album created in collaboration with acclaimed orchestrator Michael Starobin, HAVE FAITH, Testa imparts the impetus behind the concept album and outlines what motivated the wildly eclectic song choices included on the release - ranging from the Beach Boys, Prince and Aerosmith to Michael John LaChiusa, William Finn, Jill Sobule and many more. Furthermore, Testa eloquently describes the fascinating and compelling theme upon which the album is based - the journey of a soul through life; ostensibly a search for faith - and relates the sonic experience to her own spiritual pursuits. Additionally, Testa clues us in on what we can expect from her upcoming promotional concert appearances alongside Starobin in support of the album, as well, kicking off with a concert at Barnes & Noble next week along with a series of shows at the Laurie Beechman Theater. Reflecting on the various ways in which she has seen the theatre transform over the course of her career thus far, Testa also sheds some light on many of her most celebrated roles to date, including IN TROUSERS, THE RINK, XANADU, 42nd STREET, MARIE CHRISTINE, SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE, QUEEN OF THE MIST, GUYS & DOLLS, A NEW BRAIN, A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, LUCKY STIFF, CHICAGO, WICKED and more. All of that, playing Barbara Bush in FIRST DAUGHTER SUITE and much, much more with one of Broadway's most reliably entertaining and endlessly inventive regulars. (more...)
