BWW Review: South Coast Repertory Paints Bold Strokes with REDBWW Review: South Coast Repertory Paints Bold Strokes with RED
by Michael L. Quintos - Feb 9, 2016

Now on stage in an exquisite new regional production at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa through February 21, 2016, John Logan's riveting Tony Award-winning two-character play RED imagines a specific time period in the life of world-renowned abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko (played with superb gusto by Mark Harelik) and his struggles to remain an appreciated, serious artiste at the dawn of pop art, Andy Warhol, and the rise of pretty (and well-funded) 'over mantle' modern art. With the help of a new young assistant (the impressive Paul David Story), Rothko forges ahead with a high-paying commission to produce a series of murals for the Four Seasons Restaurant, which causes much inner turmoil for the artist.

BWW Review: THE MOUNTAINTOP Imagines Meeting the Real Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.BWW Review: THE MOUNTAINTOP Imagines Meeting the Real Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
by Shari Barrett - Feb 8, 2016

How often have you wondered what it would be like to go back in time and talk to an historical icon? Katori Hall's THE MOUNTAINTOP is a gripping and often humorous re-imagining of events the night before the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that won London's 2010 Olivier Award for best new play. It's one of the best ways imaginable to honor Dr. King, Black History Month and the Black Lives Matter movement by experiencing its Los Angeles premiere at the Matrix Theatre, directed by Obie Award-winner Roger Guenveur Smith and starring Larry Bates and Danielle Truitt. I cannot imagine any two actors more suited to step into the shoes of these two characters, having worked together in a previous production of the play at San Diego Rep, also directed by Smith.

by Tim Carney - Feb 8, 2016

With some spectacular visual effects and thrilling performances, Ghost the musical opened at the Regent Theatre last night in front of an appreciative audience. From the outset Jon Driscoll's video projections set the scene for what is a particularly clever musical both optically and emotionally. While Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard's score isn't overtly memorable there are some stunning melodies that capture characters inner Thoughts and feelings and move the action forward, staying faithful to the original film with Bruce Joel Rubin adapting his original screenplay for the stage.

DANIELS SONG by Katherine Dobney is ReleasedDANIELS SONG by Katherine Dobney is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 11, 2016

Inspiration comes from ones surroundings as well as from within. The grandeur of the Pacific Northwest has helped many find something unexpected. For new author Katherine Dobney, the sights and sounds struck deeper than she could ever have guessed. Though she had created art in many forms she never saw herself as talented. Limited schooling made the written word seem like a hurdle that could not be overcome. In spite of this Katherine Dobney had a story flowing through her mind. Like the waters of the lower Columbia River that small thought mixed with emotions and started to spill out onto paper. Several words became several pages steadily filling a journal that said Believe on its cover. Technology in the form of a computer and inspiration found on the wind swept beaches helped her find those illusive Thoughts and bring them all together. Emotions held closely from a lifetime of struggles, of love and lose, of abuse and triumph gave way to the birth of her first book, 'Daniels Song'. (more...)

As soon as Dael Orlandersmith walks into the room, you feel the force of her presence. This is despite, or perhaps because of, the fact that she's not even facing the audience, but rather examining a series of old photographs pinned to the wall. She makes her way around the room, eventually climbing onto the stage, looking out into the audience, and welcoming you to the theatre. And at that point, you're pretty much done for. Ms. Orlandersmith is a performer of the highest order, and you'd be best to take a deep breath now, because you might forget to for the next 80 minutes. (more...)
