BWW Reviews: Aurora's Magical MARY POPPINS Brings New Surprises to Beloved Classic

This family-friendly classic, which runs through August 31st, is a can't-miss for fans of wonder and magic, both young and old. (more...)

BWW Interviews: A Conversation with Tara Bissett: Actress, Singer, Storyteller
by Noelle Hannibal - Jul 24, 2014

Tara Bissett was always interested in the arts. Born in Montreal and raised in Montreal, Ontario and the US, her parents encouraged her from an early age to involve herself in art classes and choir in school. Having traveled overseas just after high school, Bissett retunred to Montreal for university and has remained ever since. Bissett was shy as child, so although she loved the idea of Theatre, she was too shy to go out for lead roles or solos and instead perfromed in the ensemble, keeping herself in the background. She focused instead on the visual arts, eventurally earning a degree in Fine Art. (more...)

BWW Interviews: Landing Theatre Director Paige Kiliany Talks ALL IN THE TIMING
by Katricia Lang - Jul 24, 2014

Before VENUS IN FURS was a twinkle in David Ives' eye, there was ALL IN THE TIMING, a collection of one-act plays with a range of subjects and themes - all funny and entertaining.

In disbelief? Well, take a gander at this interview with Paige Kiliany, a twenty-something who prefers ALL IN THE TIMING to Saturday Night Live. How's that for current? (more...)

BWW Reviews: ORLANDO - Go Where It Takes You
by Maggie Yates - Jul 24, 2014

Recognizable, real-world constructs are present in Orlando, but the ties to reality are ambiguous and abandoned without hesitation. Orlando is a dreamscape, a journey of beauty-a physical expression of the protagonist's self-narrated life story....Orlando's experience is a journey of exploration in which time is boundless. She enjoys several centuries of living, loving, and writing poetry. Gender is fluid, as is sexuality. (more...)
