SCANDAL Finale Recap: Bombs and Bacteria and Elections, Oh My!
by Matt Tamanini - Apr 18, 2014

All right Gladiators, put on your white hats and buckle your seatbelts, because tonight's third season finale all the twists and turns than you would expect from a SCANDAL season finale. In the end, I was really proud of Shonda Rhimes that after last year's “Dad?” Season Finale, she seemingly went in a completely different way with this year's cliffhanger. I'm going to try and chronicle EVERYTHING that happened in this episode (while throwing in some observations and snark where I can), so grab yourself a glass of red wine, this is going to be a long one… (more...)

by David Clarke - Apr 18, 2014

The San Francisco Art Institute Presents WRONG'S WHAT I DO BEST, 4/24-7/26
by BWW News Desk - Apr 16, 2014

The San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI), one of the most prestigious and oldest art schools in the nation, presents Wrong's What I Do Best, an exhibition transcending social, political and personal fault lines intent on provoking dialogue through the artists' fearless exploration of the deep and sometimes dark edges of our world. Working against both correctness and failure, Wrong's What I Do Bestrevels in repeated derailments to present the work of artists who commit themselves to unadulterated freedom of expression. Some of the artists unearth scorched histories or upset “natural” order, while others fling themselves headlong into the coming apocalypse. Characterized by illicit unrestraint and lack of critical judgment, the work occludes the artists' true selves. (more...)

Glee-Cap: Safety First, Safety Last, Safety Always
by Matt Tamanini - Apr 16, 2014

Somehow, I think your normal GLEE-capper, Robert Lawlor, knew this was going to be a down week for GLEE when he asked me to pinch-hit for him (don't worry if you don't know what that means, it's a sports term). While I have been generally quite pleased with the majority of episodes over the last two seasons, this episode felt like a throwback to Season 2 or 3, where far too many episodes felt like simply filler. While they might have ultimately been entertaining, they primarily served as a placeholder until we got to the more plot-specific episodes. With Kurt's attack last week and Rachel's 'Funny Girl' opening a week away, this episode felt disappointingly like a very low-stakes buffer between the two. (more...)

BWW Reviews: WE WILL ROCK YOU at PPAC Lives Up to Its Title
by Robert Barossi - Apr 16, 2014

It's not every rock band or musical act that could successfully create musical based on its many widely varying songs. There has to be a certain uniformity, power and resonance to the music, all of the music, carrying through many songs, rather than just one or two 'greatest hits.' And they have to be songs that can be strung together to create a cohesive whole that works as a musical with a plot, story, characters, etc. If there's any proof that it can be done, and done smashingly well, it's found in We Will Rock You, the 'rock theatrical' created through the combination of British writer Ben Elton and the music of Queen.

BWW Reviews: RACE Gets Under the Skin
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Apr 15, 2014

Race, David Mamet's incendiary exploration of truth and lies provoked by racial identity and expectation, has just completed its first week at Trustus Side Door Theatre, in collaboration with the NiA Company. Happily for Columbia audiences, it runs for another week, allowing continued opportunity for this production to provoke and bestir. Staged here in the small, spare environment of a black box theatre, Race is a decidedly adult drama underscored by barbed wit and suspense, and its enforced intimate setting creates a hothouse urgency that literally does not allow one to look away. Attention, as has been famously said in other theatre contexts, must be paid. (more...)

In a nonstop, 'brilliant' (New York Times) collection of monologues, characters from top to bottom of the eat-or-be-eaten food chain delve into all matters of adult behavior.

BWW Reviews: Great Performances Can't Save Epic Theatre's Tedious HURLYBURLY
by Robert Barossi - Apr 13, 2014

David Rabe's Hurlyburly, currently presented by Epic Theatre Company at Theatre 82 in Cranston, explores some well-known territory. It's Los Angeles in the 1980s. We're in the apartment of a couple of wanna-be Hollywood players. Vulgar, crude, rough-around-the edges guys who are trying to make it big, or at least make it, in Hollywood. They don't seem to have much real ambition though, or much actual talent, intelligence or qualifications when it comes to achieving their dreams, such as they are. All they actually do is sit around all day and night, drinking, doing drugs and having sex. These are not the bright and shiny celebrity filmmakers of Hollywood. They are the underbelly of the city, and Rabe peels back the surface and exposes all of their nastiness, not to mention their loneliness, paranoia, insecurity, greed and misery. (more...)
