BWW Review: Jeff Harnar Dazzles A Sold-Out Metropolitan Room With An Engaging Revival of His '1959 Broadway Songbook'
by Victoria Ordin - Aug 23, 2016

When a show at the Metropolitan Room starts over thirty minutes late because the staff is frantically Trying to find chairs and room for the better part of New York's cabaret community, you know you're in store for something truly special. And unless there's a chair thief on the loose in Flatiron who doesn't like Broadway, someone clearly oversold this show and/or lost track of comps; this was extremely vexing with a heat advisory in effect. Still, the mood was festive in anticipation of Jeff Harnar's 1959 Broadway Songbook, the 12th installment in Stephen Hanks' impressive (and increasingly well-known) New York Cabaret's Greatest Hits series. Harnar's show premiered 25 years ago at the Algonquin's Oak Room. Two years later, PBS filmed the collaboration with musical director Alex Rybeck, whose arrangements honor the original compositions but reimagine them in sometimes astonishing ways, making them genuinely creative acts.

BWW Review: Joey Hood Delivers a Breathtaking Tour de Force Performance in W
by Frank Benge - Aug 23, 2016

W is a new play that is a translation of Woyzeck which was written by Georg Buchner. This new translation by John Hood has been adapted by Zachary Christman. Buchner's original work remained incomplete at the time of his death. It has been posthumously 'finished' by multiple authors, editors and translators. Woyzeck is one of the most performed and influential plays in German theatre. It is believed Buchner began writing the play in 1836 and it remained in a fragmentary state when he died in 1837. Woyzeck was first published in 1879, some 42 years later, in a heavily reworked version by Karl Emil Franzos. It would be another 34 years before the play was first performed on November 8, 1913 at the Residenztheater in Munich. Considered both naturalistic and expressionistic in tone, it is loosely based on the true story of Johann Christian Woyzeck, a Leipzig wigmaker who later became a soldier. In 1821, Woyzeck murdered Christiane Woost, a widow with whom he had been living, in a jealous rage. He was later publicly beheaded. (more...)

Alas, the summer of 2016 draws to a close and I pack my bags for back to school in just a few short days. This summer has been one for the books. I learned a lot about myself, theatre, and life.

They know what I need to hear to get the point across. They know how to help me grow and aren't afraid to knock me down a few pegs if I get too high and mighty. (more...)

Yoga Teacher Training in India Shares 5 Steps to Cope with Failure
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2016

It's normal for awkward feelings such as shame and self-doubt to arise when jobs, relationships, or projects fail. Resisting the compulsion to hide from or even deny these inevitable feelings and rather finding the courage to embrace them can help you grow as a person, making you less capricious of yourself and others. And when you acknowledge the legitimate risks appropriate for success and the associated ups and downs you can make sharp choices. Here are five steps to help ready you for that next time. If at first you don't succeed ... 1.?Sit with the agony In the immediate aftermath of failure, you might feel compelled to do something, anything, to ease your perception of shame and discomfort, whether that's taking quick, drastic steps to right the wrong or seizing up and abandoning from the world. Don't do either. 'We don't make our best decisions when we are reactive,' says Ashley Good, founder and CEO of Fail Forward, a Canadian company that helps people and organizations learn to 'fail up.' Instead, take a few days, a few weeks, or longer to practice yoga and mindfulness and sit with the facts and discomfort until you begin to see what transpired with more rationality than emotion. 2. ?Decouple your ego from your activity After you reach a calmer state of mind, you will be able to see your action as the failure, not you. This picture helps bring clarity, acceptance, and self-forgiveness, which can start to neutralize the sometimes-crippling shame associated with failure. 3. ?Ask for a recap Tell your story to the community you trust, and then ask them to repeat it back to you. Simply hearing the circumstances re-framed by another party can shed new light on the facts, helping you identify your blind spots. Try to internalize these different aspects in order to see yourself more generously and regain confidence. 4. ?Keep sharing 'The more you tell your story, the fewer shame you attach to it,' says well. As you recap your experience, highlight the optimism achieved by steps 1, 2, and 3. You should be feeling stronger, and reframing the story with your new intuition will work to crystallize what you've learned and help you formulate your next plan of action. 5. ?Take risks Set new, realistic chances for what you are Trying to achieve in your next undertaking, and then go for it! Armed with the intuition, self-forgiveness, and a confidence forged by your last trial and error, you're ready to withstand new challenges, gain from them, and innovate. Remember, in order to succeed, you must risk failure. (more...)

by Stephen Sorokoff - Aug 19, 2016

BWW Review: Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre and St. Paul's Ordway Center Bring Us a Reinvigorated PAINT YOUR WAGON About the Diverse Cultures that Built the American West
by Jill Schafer - Aug 19, 2016

I had never even heard of the 1951 Lerner and Loewe musical PAINT YOUR WAGON when the Ordway announced it as part of their season. I guess that's not too surprising; it ran for less than a year on Broadway and has never been revived. The story was significantly rewritten for the 1969 movie adaptation starring Clint Eastwood, which also included a few new songs. Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre scrapped both the original and revised book (they're a little bit racist, and sexist) to write a new story set in the Gold Rush era of California, making it more reflective of the many diverse cultures that came together to build the great American West. This production has moved to the Ordway for two weeks, with a few local additions to the cast. This thrilling story of the beginnings of the American West with a beautifully diverse cast has rescued this gorgeous Western and Mexican influenced score from the place where problematic old musicals go to die.
