BWW Review: A TASTE OF HONEY Breaks the Fourth Wall into Your Consciousness
by Shari Barrett - Oct 8, 2016

British playwright Shelagh Delaney was a precocious young woman with a keen eye for detail and a gift for naturalistic dialogue. She reached the height of her literary fame at 19 with the premiere of her play A TASTE OF HONEY which she wrote in just two weeks. Much to her dismay, Delaney was often called 'an angry young woman' since she grew up in working class Salford, a gritty industrial neighbor of Manchester. And much of that environment is reflected in her Tony Award winning play which tells the story of Jo, a teenage girl abandoned in a working class town by her slatternly mother and her lover, a gentle black sailor who leaves her pregnant when he returns to sea. But it is another outcast, a homosexual man, who cares for her and provides the only true solace Jo has ever known, though he, too, is destined to leave. (more...)

BWW Review: Stunning WHITE CHRISTMAS Returns to the Pantages for One Week Only
by Don Grigware - Nov 30, 2016

White Christmas, always a treat on film (1954), creates a unique and refreshing glow on stage. The original Broadway and touring productions - the first national tour played the Pantages in 2005 - were gloriously directed by Walter Bobbie and choreographed by Randy Skinner, who turned the second act opener 'I Love a Piano' into one of the most inventive and lively tap sequences ever. Now in a short tour and directed and choreographed by Skinner, White Christmas The Musical finally returns to the Pantages but only for a week, through December 4. This is a sparkling production with terrifically paced staging and superior choreography by Skinner and a sturdy acting ensemble which includes the presence of  the delightfully funny Lorna Luft as Martha Watson. Yes, it's a frothy concoction and weak on plot, but so heartwarming and... with the spectacular Irving Berlin tunes, Who Cares? Run to get tickets while they are available! (more...)

Lupe Anguiano Biography, 'Uncompromised', is Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 6, 2017

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ Uncompromised: The Lupe Anguiano Story is now available on Amazon.com. One of America's unsung heroes, Lupe spent her life serving others and following her strong Catholic faith. She spent her childhood picking fruit with her family and, after graduating high school, decided to become a missionary nun. She found herself at odds with the church because she took a literal interpretation of Vatican II, which Pope John XXIII introduced in 1962. 'This Pope was really strong, and in examining the social teachings of the church, made statements that challenged nuns and priests to minister to the people, not asking them to leave religious life, but to get out of their comfort zones and go out and minister to people like Christ did. He told us not to be afraid to be witnesses to what's right and what's wrong. This was a major change for the Roman Catholic Church. Well, that just gave me wings!' said Lupe. As a habit-wearing nun, Lupe picketed in front of the Cardinal of Los Angeles in 1963 to protest the church's tolerance of the racially discriminatory practice of 'Redlining.' After 15 years, Lupe left the Order to better serve the people. She helped the poor in East LA and developed a teen program for gang members that turned lives around and produced a number of Latino leaders of California. She helped Cesar Chavez with the Great Grape Boycott and so much more. (more...)

1st Stage Presents the Regional Premiere of TREVOR
by BWW News Desk - Jan 12, 2017

How would you feel if the person closest to you, someone with whom you interact daily, whom you care for and who cares for you, didn't understand a word you were saying and vice versa? This communication challenge is the point on which balances the story of 200-pound chimpanzee, Trevor and his owner, Sandra. As a one-time commercial and television star alongside the likes of Morgan Fairchild, Trevor is desperate to prove his relevance in a world that has moved on now that he is no longer the adorable baby monkey of his youth. His owner Sandra swears he is still harmless and childlike, protecting herself from the realities of Trevor's dangers and the deep wounds of her own losses. Based on a true story, Trevor is a tale about how relationships, flaws, and excuses can tip-toe a delicate line between side-splitting humor and dangerous misunderstandings. Trevor and Sandra's relationship spins comically and dangerously out of control in this theatrical story by "Orange is the New Black" writer, Nick Jones. The Chicago Sun-Times hailed Trevor as a "hugely entertaining tragicomedy." (more...)
