BWW Blog: Cheyenne Dalton - Post-Audible Separation
by Guest Blogger: Cheyenne Dalton - Sep 27, 2016

This time last year, I met my friend Anthony Narciso. He was contracted to be the sound designer for Playhouse Creatures, a show that I was running sound for.  We didn't know it at the time, but we were to become thick as Thieves and become the best sound team there has ever been (okay, maybe we're a little biased). We share sound effects, projects, and ideas - a good mark of two sound designer best friends. We created a shared dropbox folder - and titled it Anthony and Cheyenne Sing Sound Shanty's. Probably the most important folder we have inside our sound shanty's is our sound dictionary. We've just been taking ordinary words and using them to define events and happenings that we find in the world of sound. For example, the first definition we came up with was for 'Smashed,' which is defined as 'the poor mixing of a track, only possible when patching a fisher price keyboard into a cassette tape recorder and mixed with low quality YouTube,' and this definition spawned from a show choir performance in which I received a terribly recorded track to play.

BWW Review: Entertaining Comedy BREATH OF SPRING Opens New Season at Theatre 40
by Shari Barrett - Jul 25, 2016

Production teams at Theatre 40 expertly present mid-20th Century British comedy better than almost any other theater in town. So it was no surprise to find out the group decided to present the riotous BREATH OF SPRING by Peter Coke to open their 51st season, directed by Bruce Gray and produced by David Hunt Stafford, the dynamic duo production team who have brought so many great shows to their stage. Written in 1958, BREATH OF SPRING has nothing to do with the season. In fact, it is a type of silver mink highly prized among fur aficionados. And while we may have differing opinions about wearing fur, there is no doubt in the mid-20th Century that lovely fur coats, stoles and jackets were often worn not only to keep warm but to show the wearer had "made it" into high society.

by BWW News Desk - Aug 13, 2016

Oliver! The Musical, Lionel Bart's classic musical, starring Frank Minano as Fagin, opened last weekend at The Grove Theatre to standing ovations. Based on Charles Dickens' novel, Oliver Twist, the Tony and Olivier Award-winning show is one of the few musicals to win an Academy Award for Best Picture and is widely hailed as a true theatrical masterpiece by actors and audience members alike. The streets of Victorian England come to life as Oliver, a malnourished orphan in a workhouse, played by Jordan Granda, becomes the neglected apprentice of an undertaker. Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty Thieves, including the Artful Dodger, played by Dante Marenco and pickpockets, led by the elderly Fagin.

Fearing the safety of his hideout, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sykes (Patrick McMahon) and the sympathetic Nancy (Julie Kirkpatrick) to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver's chances of discovering the true love of a family.
