BWW Review: SUPERIOR DONUTS at Third Wall Productions Impresses with Heart and Humor
by Kristen Price - Jan 24, 2017

A few months back I decided to read Tracy Letts' SUPERIOR DONUTS. I do that a lot when I've decided I missed a show that I really wish I hadn't. If I can't see it in person, then reading the play is a close second. The story of a small donut shop in a rundown neighborhood of Chicago, its owner and the people that frequent his shop struck a chord with me. The relationship between Arthur, and Franco, the young man Arthur employs is full of differences. Arthur is an aging Polish hippie/donut-maker, while Franco is a young African American writer.

BWW Review: Amazing Acting in PALM SPRINGS (****) at DeLaMar Theater During Nationaal Theaterweekend
by Daan Fuldner - Jan 24, 2017

If someone offered me to pay money to take a look at another family's arguments for two and a half hours, I'd probably decline. This is exactly what PALM SPRINGS does: portray a family on Christmas Eve who quarrel on and on. And the translated production of OTHER DESERT CITIES does this with success. The production is on a limited run until February 5 at the DeLaMar Theater in Amsterdam. I visited the show during last Weekend's BGL Nationaal TheaterWeekend at a sold-out Saturday night performance. (more...)

BWW Interview: Maury Yeston Talks DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY Ahead of London Opening
by Liz Cearns - Jan 23, 2017

Maury Yeston, the composer and lyricist best-known for Nine and Titanic, visited the West End a few months before the West End opening of his new musical, Death Takes a Holiday. Based on a film (which was based on a play) this story tells of how Death changed his perspective. He used to not quite understand why everyone he came to collect was quite so aggrieved to die, until he met a particular woman who allowed him to realise quite what makes life worth clinging to. The side effect of Death's occupation being, though, that he can't collect anyone else while he's so distracted - Death the person and death the concept take a break!  Maury was kind enough to discuss his musical background, some of his better-known works and his latest venture for the stage.

BWW Student Blog: Jessica Vanek - A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC at the Las Vegas Little Theatre Is Anything But Little
by Guest Blogger: Jessica Vanek - Jan 23, 2017

Jess here.  I recently had the incredible opportunity to attend a production of A Little Night Music at the Las Vegas Little Theatre, a well-established theatre company here in town.  As Sondheim is my favorite composer, this was immensely pleasing to see.  The story is set in 1900's Sweden, and follows the lives of Fredrik Egerman and his young wife, Anne.  Their inner turmoil when dealing with all things romantic is apparent from the outset, with 'Soon/Later/Now' sung by Anne, Fredrik, and Fredrik's son, Henrik, clearly defining the show's underlying premise of frustration, longing and infidelity.  When actress Desiree Armfeldt, Fredrik's former lover, happens by their town on tour, an opportunity to rekindle the romance comes into play, however foiled by the unexpected arrival of Desiree's married lover, Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm.  Subsequently, the development of several unbeknownst love triangles and pairings surface in Act II, as the group members all rendezvous at the country estate of Desiree's mother, Madame Armfeldt, for a climactic 'Weekend in the Country.'

BWW Review: AMADEUS at IRISH CLASSICAL THEATRE
by Michael Rabice - Jan 21, 2017

Joint Venture Makes For Cohesive AMADEUS Collaboration among Western New York arts groups can only help serve the better good of the community and a happy pairing of Irish Classical Theatre with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra is playing on at Kleinhans Music Hall, as both groups present Peter Shaffer's TONY and Academy Award winning AMADEUS. While integrating live music with theatrical plays may have been commonplace at one time-- think Beethoven's Overture and incidental music to the play EGMONT or Mendelssohn's interludes to ROMEO AND JULIET, it is a custom that has all but died of extinction in the 20th century. So the novelty of having the full BPO join forces with one of Buffalo's premier theatre companies is truly a rare theatrical opportunity. (more...)

The Lake Effect Fringe Festival Kicks Off 5th Season
by BWW News Desk - Jan 21, 2017

The Lake Effect Fringe Festival kicks off its 5th season of bringing new theatre to West Michigan all through the month of February on Wednesday, February 1 and 2, 2017 at 8:00 pm with a performance by Shadblow Theatre, reprising their production of Anatomy of Gray, by Jim Leonard. A coming of age story that is relatable to all. Its themes of community, family, questioning faith, fear of the unknown, acceptance, and love speak to audiences of all ages and backgrounds. The play's ensemble driven story-telling, sometimes delightful and sometimes devastating emotional depth, as well as its often presentational style allows this play to truly connect to its audiences. The story follows fifteen-year-old June Muldoon, her mother, the colorful townsfolk of Gray, Indiana, and the mysterious doctor who crash lands in the center of the "most boring town in the world." Seeking to raise questions about what it means to be a part of this incredibly diverse world, the heart of this play touches on themes relevant to all. Fast-paced clever staging, beautiful lyrical narration, and a small but talented nine person ensemble, this play offers a compelling story in an immersive setting that is sure to offer a lot of laughs and a few tears.  (more...)
