BWW Reviews: WE ARE SAMURAI Wanders Wild, Well-Made, And Weird
by Alan Katz - Sep 9, 2014

Here's the key: the play takes place in 5 different physical locations within and outside Venus Theater's compound. You, the audience, choose how to experience the play. One could stay in the same location for the majority of the play or follow a particular character around. The best way to experience the play though, is to go wherever you feel like. Is something interesting happening over there? Walk on over. Horrified scream from the kitchen? Best check it out. In this way, We Are Samurai is very much like a mystery, where you try to piece together exactly what is going on and the relationships between the characters. (more...)

Mile Square Theatre to Stage CYRANO, 10/11-26
by BWW News Desk - Sep 8, 2014

What if you could single-handedly fight off 100 men? Or if your wit was as sharp as the sword you carry? And you wrote poetry that could make any person weep? Wouldn't these attributes win you the affection of The Woman you love? Not if you are Cyrano, whose oversized nose shames him into silence, believing no one could love him. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THE ORCHID FLOTILLA is a Stunning Exploration of the Human Soul's Ability to Survive
by Frank Benge - Sep 7, 2014

One of my favorite descriptions of what theatre is states that "theatre is an experience, shared by a group of strangers, in the dark." This description certainly holds true for THE ORCHID FLOTILLA created by writer/director Caroline Reck, playing through Sept. 20 at The Salvage Vanguard Theater. It returns to Austin after a 2012 run that earned it 6 B. Iden Payne and 2 Critic's Table Nominations. It is clear to see why it received all the nominations it did. (more...)

Sgrouples Raises $1.2M Series Seed II
by BWW News Desk - Sep 3, 2014

“Americans care about privacy,” Weinstein continues. “A 2014 Harris Interactive Poll found that 99% of Americans now claim to care about their online privacy. 71% 'care deeply.' Repeated privacy violations by Internet companies and government agencies have caused consumers of all ages to view social media as a venue for spying and stalking, instead of one for safe personal connection. NSA's Prism and cyber bullying exacerbate this. The fatal design flaw is that companies like Facebook and Google have uncontrolled access to our personal data, regardless of their so-called 'privacy settings.' Our data is scraped, tracked, harvested, and leaked to/by strangers, employers, colleges, advertisers, insurers, the NSA, data brokers and criminals. Consumers are the product, marketers are the customer. Sgrouples seeks to change that. This investment is a significant step toward that change. Beyond this, we anticipate a future round of $15M - $20M.” (more...)

BWW Reviews: FALL FOR DANCE Kicks Off with a High Energy Evening at the Delacorte
by Frances Steiner - Sep 17, 2014

The Public Theater was founded on the idea that “Culture belongs to everyone.” While Fall for Dance Festival is a brainchild of New York City Center and not The Public, this mandate is similarly a founding principle of the festival. Each performance costs $15 and consists of four works from leading dance companies and artists. This year, City Center commissioned three works in addition to four American premieres and four New York City premieres. Last year, at the tenth anniversary of the festival, City Center partnered with The Public to present two free performances at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. It was so successful that Fall for Dance at the Delacorte will become the annual kick off event. This year, the program consisted of works presented by Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, New York City Ballet, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company, and Lil Buck. (more...)

BWW Recap: DWTS: Who's the First One to Stop Dancing?
by Gabrielle Gervais - Sep 17, 2014

ABC's hit reality competition show DANCING WITH THE STARS premiered its 19th season last night with a bang, and tonight was the first elimination round. Now I'm recapping this show as it happens, so before it is revealed, my guess for the couple up for elimination is Lolo Jones and her partner Keo. I'd hate to see her partner go because this is his first DWTS season, but between Jones's stiff moves and sour attitude through the night, she is my pick to go home. (more...)

BWW Recap: SONS OF ANARCHY Turns a Porn Party into an Assassination
by Desiree Fantal - Sep 10, 2014

In the weeks leading up to the season premiere of FX's SONS OF ANARCHY, there was much talk about how gruesome and shocking the first few minutes of the show would be. Viewer discretion would be highly advised. Thinking back to many past episodes, this advisory seemed wise. The show started with a series of “Last season on SOA” clips to get you both excited for what was to come and angry about what had already occurred. Creator Kurt Sutter is known for toying with our emotions this way. The scenes transitioned to one of Jax (Charlie Hunnam) in prison, beating the hell out of some guy. I watched the premiere with a friend who was new to SOA. He asked who Jax's victim was and though I squinted my eyes to 20/20 vision, I couldn't tell who he was through all the blood, sweat and tears. (more...)

by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Aug 30, 2014

The final, 70th episode in the dramatization of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot stories, CURTAIN, starring David Suchet in his definitive portrayal of the Belgian detective, is now being streamed by AcornTV. This long-awaited episode, a career-capping achievement for Suchet, does not disappoint; it is among the best of the more recent Poirot episodes, and is relatively faithful to Christie's novel, written in the 1940's and published in 1975. While multiple suspicious characters and blind alleyways abound in this 90 minute adaptation, the plot does not rely as heavily on familiar Christie parlor tricks such as unbelievable double identities. Instead, it explores a much more psychological landscape, particularly in terms of Poirot himself, his longtime friend Hastings (Hugh Fraser), and a diabolical psychopath who revels in provocation rather than personal bloodletting.

BWW Reviews: The Unsingable Blues
by Kristen Morale - Aug 29, 2014

Beautiful Soup Theater's Shades of Blue: The Decline and Fall of Lady Day is an unconventional, almost chilling ode to Holiday that is careful not to emphasize and dwell upon the singer's musical accolades and success; in fact, it does little to promote her career and the person as seen through the eyes of her adoring public. This production, written and directed by the incredibly talented Steven Carl McCasland (who also founded Beautiful Soup and serves as the group's Artistic Director), wades in the realm of storytelling without the fantastical twist that people always enjoy adding to make their lives seem more interesting - to add drama where drama may sometimes be due.
