BWW Recap: M is for MURDER on AMERICAN HORROR STORY
by Jessica Naftaly - Sep 22, 2016

BWW Review: THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL at the Broad Brook Opera House
by Joseph Harrison - Sep 19, 2016

Musicals have an amazing way of transporting an audience to exciting, sometimes magical places. You might find yourself in the middle of a romantic kingdom, on the rooftops of turn-of-the-century London, or in the catacombs of a French opera house. But when the lights come up on the latest show at the Broad Brook Opera House, audiences find they have been transported to a place that is, well, a little less magical - the Armadillo Acres Trailer Park in Starke, Florida.

Photo Flash: Sierra Repertory Theatre Presents THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM
by BWW News Desk - Sep 16, 2016

A rousing, bawdy Southern fairytale from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Driving Miss Daisy, with one of the only genuine bluegrass scores ever heard in a Broadway musical. Set in eighteenth century Mississippi, the show follows Jamie Lockhart, a rascally robber of The Woods, as he courts Rosamund, the only daughter of the richest planter in the country. The proceedings go awry, however, thanks to a case of double-mistaken identity. Throw in an evil stepmother, intent on Rosamund's demise, and her pea-brained henchman, and you have a rollicking country romp. With its distinct sound, colorful cast and unique form of storytelling, The Robber Bridegroom is a hidden gem! (more...)

BWW Recap: All Is Revealed on the Season Premiere of AMERICAN HORROR STORY
by Jessica Naftaly - Sep 15, 2016

The sixth season of FX's American Horror Story premiered last night, and after taking a completely different approach in marketing, we also learned that the season was formatted quite different than we are used. With the excitement for future seasons always stemming from the announcement of the theme, something that AHS has become known for and what makes it so exciting and refreshing each year, the knowledge that the team were choosing to keep this years theme closely under wraps and in much guarded secrecy until the series premiere (so successfully that the team on Thrones could probably take a few pointers!) was a shock and interesting choice. Last night, however, all was revealed…or was it?  (more...)
