Sculpture Center's THE ECCENTRICS Panel Discussion Set for The New School on 3/29
by BWW News Desk - Mar 26, 2016

In early 20th Century Russia, circus performers were referred to as "eccentrics," a term picked up by the St. Petersburg-based avant-garde group of artists, writers, and filmmakers who comprised the "Factory for the Eccentric Actor' or FEKS. For them, using stunts, gags, and tricks became ways to address the changing pace of life with new developments in technology and media culture. The circus emerged as a Touchstone because it was a place where the impossible happened, and social orders and scientific laws were stretched to challenge the conventions of the reality outside of the tent.  (more...)

BWW Review: Profiles Theatre's JERUSALEM Is a Poetic Trip Into the Woods

It's St. George's Day and a merry band of rural England revelers wake in the aftermath of a night of debauchery.

The tales begin to spin as plans for a day of fun at the local county fair are marred by an eviction notice on Rooster's door. Country life seems anything but simple in Profiles Theatre's ambitious production of Jez Butterworth's Tony winning play, Jerusalem. (more...)

BWW Review: Musical Theatre West Revisits Classic WEST SIDE STORY, Ends 2/28
by Michael L. Quintos - Feb 25, 2016

Unquestionably one of musical theater's most beloved, iconic classics, WEST SIDE STORY---the stirring Broadway musical that features a book by theater titan Arthur Laurents, music by the incomparable Leonard Bernstein, and lyrics by living legend Stephen Sondheim---remains a still-resonant masterpiece of song, dance and story that explores themes still quite relevant even in modern times. For Musical Theatre West in Long Beach's latest regional revival, the show is presented in a rather nostalgic iteration that closely harkens back to the mood and feel of the original 1957 stage production (plus hints of its Academy Award-winning 1961 film adaptation). Nothing beats going to back to the power and intentions of the Jerome Robbins-helmed original, which this production successfully honors and emulates. In essence, this WEST SIDE STORY is a satisfying trip down memory lane, reaching back far enough to allow the original material to shine and reverberate. (more...)
