Bear & Co. Presents MACBETH
by BWW News Desk - Sep 24, 2016

Three witches lure Macbeth to a clandestine crown. Shakespeare's tale of Scottish savageries from 400 years earlier blends life at the knife edge with surprising tenderness. Twelfth-Century Scotland is the world of Outlander, where decisions reek more of Game of Thrones than of the court of St. James.  Adapted from Bear & Co.'s July 2016 outdoor touring production, here is a love story with appalling consequences, presented in a fast paced re-telling.

BWW Feature: Salute to Edward Albee
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Oct 10, 2016

It was during my undergrad years at Sam Houston State University that I was introduced to the writings of Edward Albee. Every so often there's a playwright that comes along and changes the landscape of the American Theatre. It was in 1963 when Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? debuted on Broadway and shook the foundation of the theatre world. Albee's work delves into the human psyche with an in-depth view of relationships, marriage, and sex. His presence will be truly missed but his mark on the theatre world is undoubtedly immortal.
