BWW Review: Seattle Rep's BROWNSVILLE SONG Hits No Good NotesBWW Review: Seattle Rep's BROWNSVILLE SONG Hits No Good Notes
by Jay Irwin - Mar 31, 2016

It's all well and good to want to shine a spotlight on urban violence and inner city gangs through entertainment (theater, film, TV, etc.). It gets the issues out there in the hopes that something might get changed. But as it's been done time and time before, if you're going tell another one of these kinds of stories then have something new to say and tell it well. Unfortunately the current production at the Seattle Rep, "brownsville song (b-side for tray)" fails in both respects with bad writing, bad direction and bad performances amounting to a show that felt it was important but came across as cliche.

BWW Review: Here Come THE Desperate REAL HOUSEWIVES OF TOLUCA LAKEBWW Review: Here Come THE Desperate REAL HOUSEWIVES OF TOLUCA LAKE
by Ellen Dostal - Apr 5, 2016

With a title like THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF TOLUCA LAKE: THE MUSICAL you wouldn't expect to see high art, but I at least thought this new musical would kill it in the comedy department. Instead, it trades on desperate humor, trite songs, stereotypical characters, and a storyline you've seen before. What could have been a smart, cheeky parody of The Real Housewives television franchise instead ends up feeling rather desperate. Even an audience packed with friends and family on opening night grew tired of applauding and a fair number of one-liners made no impact at all. (more...)
