BWW TV Exclusive: BRIGHT STAR Cast Shines at Broadway Sessions!
by Ben Cameron - May 23, 2016

The score to Bright Star is a delicious blend of Americana, blue grass and gospel, and it's great. This last Thursday I started my day by whetting my appetite for things to come (I was seeing Bright Star on Broadway that evening before welcoming the cast to Sessions). I spent my morning listening to the cast album. I was immediately taken with it's signature sound and sweeping melodies. Steve and Edie know what they are doing. Bluegrass on Broadway¬Ö it works. How? Who cares! It works. (more...)

BWW Review: Alexis Gershwin Keeps Gershwin Music Alive in GERSHWIN SINGS GERSHWIN
by Don Grigware - Mar 24, 2016

On Tuesday, March 22 Alexis Gershwin brought her cabaret show to the Catalina Jazz Club for one night only to a sold out audience. The show entitled Gershwin Sings Gershwin was a delightful evening of many of the priceless standards that made George and Ira Gershwin two of the best composers of all time. Alexis is the niece of the brothers, so, as a member of the family, she knows a thing or two about their music and how to sing it. Petite and gracious, Alexis Gershwin captivates with her charm and wonderful phrasing. She really calls attention to the lyrics and makes you understand the meaning of a Gershwin tune. For a female singer past middle age, it is not always easy to hit the high notes with alacrity; we accept that and look for other attributes that make the performance worthy of attention. In Alexis' case, it's her delivery that consists of full, almost sensual whispers that are simultaneously attractive and effective in pulling you into the songs. When she sings 'I've Got a Crush on You' almost every male member of the audience can feel her seduction or in 'A Foggy Day (in London town)' her expressive intonations truly set the ambiance and mood for the piece (more...)

BWW Blog: Siobhan O'Loughlin - Fairies, Folklore and Foam: The Isle of Man
by Guest Blogger: Siobhan O'Loughlin - Jun 7, 2016

"Everyone who just got out is really happy, and another group is getting ready to come in," Robin said to me. Robin is tall, and thin, with enormous blue eyes and a head full of curls. I was sitting on a small couch in a third floor recording studio in a gorgeous home, owned by my new friends, Phil and Marie, on the Isle of Man. I was also sweating-my bath water had previously been very hot,  and I nodded, while sipping a giant mason jar of water and wearing a big, plush white robe given to me by Robin's mother.  (more...)

BWW Review: THE SPITFIRE GRILL Examines What It Takes to Find Your Own Colors of Paradise
by Shari Barrett - Jun 5, 2016

Each of us has our own vision of what paradise looks like. It could be a city of skyscrapers or a tropical island, or perhaps a lovely wooded area as it changes colors with the seasons. Our search may take us to the far reaches of the globe, or perhaps to the small town where we were raised that now seems to be the perfect place for us to settle down and make a great life. Of course, there is no guarantee the place you select will contain all the colors of paradise you imagine, given how tough it is for small towns everywhere to survive when people move on after local businesses start shutting down. Such is the case at THE SPITFIRE GRILL in Gilead, Wisconsin. (more...)

BWW Review: JACK FERVER Mistakes The Kitchen for Camp
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 5, 2016

Jack Ferver never let up on his drag delivery. Switching arbitrarily from bad French to English or from danse to dance passed for plot in this cabaret act. The scantily clad men in the audience - I attended the June 30th, 2016 performance - lapped it up before they even had a chance to hear the next line. It was all good fun, though if there is an art to telegraphing intention it was not on display here. That was 'I Want You to Want Me': a surrealistic B movie romp ruled by a character with mystical abilities for no other reason than 'just because'. File it under lazy craftsmanship. The world that Mr. Ferver inhabited was self referential, sassy, and imbued with magic, not unlike a gay lounge. (more...)

Sheri Lynn Francis Releases First Novel DAMAGED
by BWW News Desk - Dec 2, 2015

Nichol has been 32 years old for the last 400 years. With his curly black hair and blue eyes, he is effortlessly handsome. He lived as an innocent in 16th century Russia until he and his sweetheart were brutally attacked and he was turned into a vampire. Anger and pain drive him in a quest to commit vile crimes and think of himself as cursed. But sometimes, as this new novel released by Dog Ear Publishing reveals, redemption is possible. Set in Whitechapel London, the age of pirates in the West Indies, Hundred Years War and modern times, 'Damaged' tells the story of a vampire who begins to wonder if a damaged spirit can regain his soul. A fellow vampiress guides the new immortal to a different path, and he is also helped by his guardian Lucita, a pagan witch who cares for Nichol, and Bishop, a surfer computer hacker who serves as his business associate. Nichol uses his thirst for blood to eliminate those who harm the innocent, smelling the evil coming from his victims like vintage wine. A friend and lover is put in danger by the very person who should have been most protective of her, and it's up to Nichol to redeem himself to remove the threat. The passionate novel reveals a conflicted hero who must face his own demons if he is to have a hope of recovering his soul. Sheri Lynn Francis has a degree in microbiology and a doctorate in science from the University of Florida. She writes and works as a scientist. Francis was passionate about reading while growing up in New York. The Florida resident has written several short stories and poems, although this is her first novel.

In the process, he invites us to fall in love with the art form all over again by showing us how musicals happen, what makes them work, how they captivate audiences, and how one landmark show leads to the next-by design or by accident, by emulation or by rebellion from OKLAHOMA! to HAMILTON and onward.
