BWW Review: Kelly Pekar shines in Mad Cow's SKYLIGHT
by Kimberly Moy - Jun 26, 2017

All's fair in love and politics. Maybe that's not the correct saying, but it accurately describes David Hare's SKYLIGHT. Currently playing at Mad Cow Theatre, this play focuses on the complexities of the heart. It is dramatic and thought-provoking enough to leave audiences thinking about the plot days after. (more...)

BWW Review: The Jungle Theater's Production of the Off-Broadway Musical FLY BY NIGHT is an Infectious Retro-Folk-Pop-Rock Delight
by Jill Schafer - Jun 21, 2017

A new original folk-rock musical? It's like FLY BY NIGHT was created and brought to the Jungle just for me. The rare bird that is the new original musical is my favorite thing in the world, and folk-rock/folk/Americana is my favorite genre of music. I was primed and ready to love this show, and love it I did. Charming and funny yet poignant, with a fantastic score played by greats from the local music scene, and a cast that couldn't be better - what's not to love? (more...)

BWW Exclusive: My Riotous Night at JULIUS CAESAR
by Leah Lane - Jun 21, 2017

I find controversy delicious. As an avid theatre goer, there are very few times when I enter a theater with no preconceptions about what I'm about to see. Whether it's just the gossip I've heard around or the ads that I skip after 5 seconds on YouTube, I usually have some prior knowledge about the subject matter. This was especially true when I went into the Delacorte Theater to see the Public's production of Julius Caesar. I learned of Oscar Eustis' choice to make the play explicitly politically relevant when I heard about Delta and Bank of America pulling their sponsorships. As someone who sees herself as a socially active artist, I got excited. (more...)

BWW Review: New England Premiere of THE EFFECT at Gloucester Stage Company
by Nancy Grossman - Jun 19, 2017

It is a simple premise: Two candidates in a pharmaceutical drug trial fall in love, but is their chemistry real, or induced? This scientific debate is the subject of Lucy Prebble's THE EFFECT, now in its New England Premiere at Gloucester Stage Company. Under the direction of Sam Weisman, the play stars Lindsay Crouse as Dr. Lorna James and Brad Hall as Dr. Toby Sealey, a pair with a past, along with Susannah Hoffman and Mickey Solis as the volunteers who may have a future. Both relationships contribute talking points on either side of the discourse that fuels the drama, but the playwright leaves enough doubt to allow the viewer to wrestle with the conclusion.

Guest Blog: Five Things Actors Can Do While Waiting For A Cast List
by Guest Blogger: Brynn Bonne - Jun 19, 2017

We've all been there. We've all had that feeling of anticipation between an audition and the call from the casting team to inform us if we've made the cut. You go over your audition, you sit there in agony, you talk to your friends who also auditioned seeing if they know anything, though they are most of the time in the same boat as you, you even contemplating calling the directorial team yourself. All of these are HUGE red flags. There's nothing you can do about it once you step out of the audition room. You've done your part, let them do theirs. Trust that they will make the best choice. On the odd time that it takes a little longer than you can hope, here are some things to do in the meantime to keep your mind off of the anticipation. (more...)

BWW Review: STAR-CROSSED by Barbara Dee
by Bonnie Lynn Wagner - Jun 19, 2017

I was also excited about the book because it revolved around the world of theatre, and that always gets my attention in a book. Mattie doesn't want to try out for a big role, even though her teacher thinks she should, and when the cast's Romeo quits--and there are no understudies--Mattie finds herself cast in the role because she knows the part and had been helping the previous Romeo understand the show. But now she's, *gulp* playing lead against Gemma, the new girl at school who has changed her world and way of thinking. She's coming to realize that she has a huge crush on Gemma, and she doesn't know what to do about the fact that she's now playing Gemma's love interest onstage. Can she play it cool? Is there any possibility Gemma could like her back as more than a friend? (more...)
