Work of Eco-Theater JUPITER to Play LaMaMa in FebruaryWork of Eco-Theater JUPITER to Play LaMaMa in February
by BWW News Desk - Jan 7, 2016

'JUPITER (a play about power)' by Superhero Clubhouse and Kaimera Productions is an argument of soaring irony and logic between humanity and a dude with one-time magic who has made all fossil fuels disappear permanently from the Earth. That's not such an unbelievable premise, when you think about it, because in terms of our global history, we are on the brink of an energy systems overhaul. Some 'man at the switch' could at any time begin shutting our industrial civilization down. Oh, we'll be indignant then. Now imagine a philosophical debate between this overlord and a woman who represents all of humankind. That is the one-act 'dream play' that will be offered to us by playwright Jeremy Pickard, director Simon Adinia Hanukai and musician/energy policy specialist Jonathan Camuzeaux, presented by La Mama from February 11-28, 2016.

by Richard Sasanow - Jan 25, 2016

Sometimes, the Metropolitan Opera seems like an endless Puccini festival. It's particularly apparent this season, when top dogs LA BOHEME, TOSCA and MADAMA BUTTERFLY are joined by TURANDOT and MANON LESCAUT, which are not second drawer, though certainly less popular than the first three. (Let's see how that descriptor applies to the latter when Jonas Kaufmann steps on stage for the new production of LESCAUT.) (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Feb 4, 2016

Some Shakespearean tragedies are ripe for a prequel; amidst the chaos and bloodshed, you wonder what happened to get us here, and what might be going on just out of view.  In 'Verona Walls,' playwright Laura Hirschberg, a Shakespeare devotee since childhood, imagines a background story for 'Romeo and Juliet' that is separate from the ancient grudges that frame the Bard's tragedy.  She spins a separate and most profound 'bromance' for the Montague boys in this new play, which centers on the loves and mistakes of Mercutio--Romeo's best friend and Shakespeare's notorious scene-stealer--as the action of "Romeo and Juliet" plays out somewhere offstage.  The Workshop Theater, 312 West 36th Street, will present the play's world premiere March 3 to 26, directed by DeLisa M. White. (more...)
