BWW Review: For TheatreWorks Florida's Glorious SWEENEY TODD the Devil is in the Overlooked Details
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 18, 2014

Amongst the vast majority of musical theatre devotees, there is little debate that Stephen Sondheim is the greatest writer that the artform has ever known. So, as I sat watching TheatreWorks Florida's soaring Opening Night performance of his darkest masterpiece, SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET, I found my mind consistently going over his three principles of lyric writing: 1) 'Content dictates form.' 2) 'Less is more.' 3) 'God is in the details.' Now, before I go much further, I want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this production, especially the phenomenal voices and inventive staging, and this show is a must see for any local lover of Sondheim's work. I doubt that you will find a better sounding group of actors on an Orlando stage any time soon. Music Director David Foust clearly did incredible work on this production. (more...)

Citizen Relations Introduces "mob-aisling" as Part of New Study Exploring Technology Purchase Behaviors and Trends
by BWW News Desk - Sep 17, 2014

According to Citizen Tech, a new two-part North American study commissioned by communications agency Citizen Relations and powered by Vision Critical's Customer Intelligence Platform, far more Americans (twice as many) say they are webrooming, the term used to describe consumers who compare products online and then purchase them at retail (64 percent), rather than the much-hyped showrooming (32 percent), which is the reverse when consumers compare products in-store but buy online. Moreover, the study shows a rise in another trend: while in the technology aisles of a retail store, more than 15 percent of shoppers are using a mobile device to comparison shop for better specs and lower prices online right then and there, newly dubbed 'mob-aisling' (pronounced 'mo-b?l-ing') by Citizen Relations.
