BWW Review: SHE LOVES ME, Menier Chocolate Factory
by Marianka Swain - Dec 8, 2016

For those seeking festive revelry, but with an equally seasonal undertow of quiet melancholy, She Loves Me is the blissful solution. Joe Masteroff, Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick's 1963 musical adaptation of Miklos Laszlo's play Parfumerie, which also inspired the Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan vehicle You've Got Mail, is a sparkling Christmas bauble of a show that shone on Broadway earlier this year, and now comes to us in delectable intimate form in the small but mighty musicals powerhouse that is the Menier.

BWW Review: IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE Delights Christmas Enthusiasts in Round Rock, TX
by Amy Bradley - Dec 8, 2016

Back by popular demand, IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE sparkles in the quaint performance space of Old Settler's Hall. Festively located next to Round Rock's "Christmas Towne", IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE provides more of an experience than a traditional retelling of everyone's favorite classic Christmas Story. Adapted from the beloved radio play / broadcast, the Penfold Theatre Company has brought this adaptation back to life, with magical elements the whole family will enjoy. Setting the stage in a quiet and whimsical hall, the audience is transported to 1946 as members of KPNF radio station. Back then family members gathered around the hearth to listen to the classic Christmas cast. For those unfamiliar with this sweet story, see George Bailey (played by Penfold Artistic Director Ryan Crowder), a man who, through fateful circumstances, gave up his dreams of traveling the world for the good of the people in his hometown Bedford Falls. A slew of events catapults Bailey onto a bridge contemplating suicide on Christmas Eve. What happens between his birth and George's contemplation of death, are the subject of the plot. This shines a light on the many struggles of humanity and brings into focus the humility the holiday season harkens from an individual. (more...)

BWW Review: LIGHTEN UP is a Brilliant Dark Comedy About a Very Grey Area at Griffin Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Dec 5, 2016

The final independent production of the year at Griffin Theatre certainly has their year going out with a bang in Lighten Up, a tongue-through-cheek pummelling of racist stereotyping, the entertainment industry, metaphysics and Aussie lunacy. Written by Nicholas Brown and Sam McCool, Lighten Up was quick-fire and zero-point sharp at poking fun toward the prejudices running rampant in Australia's social and political climates, more acutely of late.

BWW Review: O'Neill's A TOUCH OF THE POET Reveals Volcanic Forces Stewing in an Irish Tavern in 1828
by Shari Barrett - Dec 5, 2016

Eugene O'Neill is the only American playwright ever to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature and he is a four-time recipient of the Pulitzer Prize. Between 1920 and 1943, he completed 20 long plays, with several of them double and triple length. And unfortunately, the current Pacific Resident production comes in at over 3 hours, a Trying time for a play with such dramatic verbiage that it is necessary to pay full attention throughout since O'Neill's brilliant writing is both incredibly introspective yet often very repetitive. So be sure not to eat a huge meal before attending so the urge to fall asleep does not overtake you. (more...)

BWW Recap:WESTWORLD Proves that Violent Delights Truly Have Violent Ends in its Mindblowing Finale
by Jessica Naftaly - Dec 5, 2016

The final episode of the premiere season of Westworld, “The Bicameral Mind,” was bittersweet, sentimental, violent, satisfying, and only benefits from a repeat viewing or two. With everything riding on the finale and the show's massively built up audience praying for a finale that would live up tot he rest of the season's carefully and deftly crafted episodes, WESTWORLD didn't disappoint. Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan proved that they had hit on something truly special and are focused on a narrative deeper and more thoughtful than the majority of shows currently and previously reaching the top of the ratings. WESTWORLD's finale only cemented the show's narrative theme of autonomy, storytelling and subverting the traditional tropes of stories, as well as it's ultimate deconstruction of archetypes through our ultimate lenses; Maeve and Dolores.  (more...)

by Don Grigware - Dec 5, 2016

One thing is perfectly clear. Jane Wagner's perspective of the 80s, The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe is a brilliant piece of writing. When Lily Tomlin performed it in the 80s (the film version was released in 1991) as a one-woman play, portraying all twelve characters, the charm of the play was watching Tomlin's ingenious skill. She flawlessly slipped in and out of all the characters, female and male, without changing makeup, hair or clothes. It was a phenomenal performance. Now thirty years later, Wagner and Tomlin have adapted the work for a cast of 12 actors under the direction of Ken Sawyer, which opened in October and has been extended until December 11 only at the LGBT Center on the Ed Gould Plaza at McCadden Place, Hollywood.

Alex Bernstein Releases Memoir, PIRKNIB
by BWW News Desk - Dec 5, 2016

In his new memoir 'Plrknib' ( Alex Bernstein takes the I'm with the Band notion from 'Almost Famous' and flips it into I'm with the Comics. At 16, Bernstein was the youngest regular at Cincinnati's legendary comedy club, d.w. eye, desperately Trying to balance high school with writing and performing at night. As the pressure to keep up with the older comics grew, he looked for something - some edge - to help him compete. And then he found one: Plrknib - the perfect joke. But using the joke came with a terrible, terrible price. Set against the bohemian, downtown comedy boom of the early '80s, 'Plrknib' is a breezy, bittersweet, and compelling story about love, friendship, and finding your own punchlines. Early reviews say: 'Hysterical, edge-of-your-seat drama.' 'The Power of Jokes permeates this a way rarely seen in fiction.' 'I felt as though I was on stage with him 30 years ago.' About the Book: 'Plrknib' is published by Prom on Mars and is available for sale at Amazon and other online retailers, as well as to order from most bookstores. The paperback (ISBN 978-0-9913135-4-9) retails for U.S. $6.99. The ebook (ISBN 978-0-9913135-3-2) retails for U.S. $1.99.

BWW Review: Showtunes' LEAP OF FAITH Spotlights Good Voices in a Not So Good Show
by Jay Irwin - Dec 5, 2016

Just a few days ago I reviewed a show that, if you remember, I felt had one major downfall; that the newer songs bringing it from the film version to the stage version had lyrics written by Glenn Slater. Now, just a few blocks from that other production, Showtunes puts up a concert of another film to stage adaptation with all of the lyrics written by Glenn Slater and music from Alan Menken. And while there were certainly some wonderful voices in the concert it just proves one thing that Showtunes needs to pay attention to, not all shows need a revival. (more...)

BWW Review: Ocean State Theatre Rings in Holidays with Lackluster WHITE CHRISTMAS
by Robert Barossi - Dec 5, 2016

Movies to musicals and musicals to movies. It's been a regular occurrence for years, although it seems that recently it's been happening more and more. Sometimes, the transition from movie to musical, or vice versa, works perfectly and can be pulled off without a hitch. Sometimes it fails miserably. The musical version of the 1954 classic holiday movie White Christmas is neither of these things. It's not spectacular, nor is it a failure. It's uneven, at best, something that is made worse by an uneven and surprisingly disappointing production currently running at Ocean State Theatre Company. (more...)

Sitting in my seat watching Lance Horne and his many friends perform at NEW WORK NEW WORK I: EXTRAORDINARY DAYS at Joe's Pub, I couldn't help but feel like I was at a really great dinner party (if I were invited to dinner parties with some of the most talented artists in the city). The seats---and, in this case, the songs---were assigned, but the host didn't try and force conversation, and the whole affair was better for it. The purpose of the November 21 show, the first in a year-long residency, was for the successful composer and musical director to showcase his recent work, and, for new material, Horne's songs were quite polished.
