BWW Review: Artistry's WIT Takes the Audience on a Beautifully Painful Journey
by Jill Schafer - May 16, 2017

I don't know where to begin with this one. Artistry's production of the Pulitzer Prize winning play WIT is simply devastating. But it's also funny, and smart, and philosophical, and enlightening. This is my first experience with the play, and I really can't think of anyone I'd rather see in the lead role than the incomparable Sally Wingert. She gives a masterful performance in what has got to be one of the juiciest roles in theater - a smart, educated, independent, confident woman who experiences life in a whole new way while approaching death from cancer. This professor who is an expert in the metaphysical poetry of John Donne has spent her life contemplating life, death, and the afterlife in theory, and has to rethink everything she believes when faced with the stark reality of it. It's a brilliantly written play given an excellent and interesting staging by Artistry, and Sally's performance is one not to be missed. (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...)

Photo Flash: 1st Stage presents DC Region Premiere of TREVOR
by BWW News Desk - Feb 7, 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...)
