12 STEPS: THE MUSICAL by Elise Maurine Milner
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2016

The funny thing about ADDICTION is, everyone has one! This comedic and heart warming story follows Graham Chili, a country boy from Texas who has just moved to New York City to follow his dreams as a wall street stock broker by day and a cabaret singer by night. Looking to make friends and connect with his new surroundings in the spirit of his hometown 'mega church capital,' and fresh off the bus in Timesquare, he enters a Manhattan Mega church in search of the 'choir practice' room. Instead he erroneously stumbles upon four different 12 step addiction meetings going on in the church basement that divert his attention, inspire his love life, and creates new friends and life realizations! '12 Steps' both entertains and educates also with light parody, both using the popularity and the mystery of the infamous self help program without mockery, but with clever direction and understanding using humor, gentleness, and ingenuity. Come get your 'Higher Power' on! (more...)

BWW Review: JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR Gets Stirring Production in Wimberley
by Frank Benge - Jul 18, 2016

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR started out in 1970 as a rock opera concept album with music by Andrew Lloyd-Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The response to the album was so great that a stage version debuted on Broadway in 1971. Like opera, the musical is sung-through, with no spoken dialogue. Loosely based on the Gospels' accounts of the final week of Jesus life, the story begins with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ends with the crucifixion. Unlike the narratives in the Bible, the show focuses on the interpersonal and political struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus. A large portion of the plot centers on Judas, depicting him as a tragic figure who is unhappy with the direction in which Jesus is steering his disciples. The show contains many intentional anachronisms, including slang and ironic allusions to modern life and attitudes. (more...)
