BWW Exclusive: Dame Judi Dench Discusses Shakespeare, Her Passion, CATS, Potential Broadway Return
by Matt Tamanini - May 27, 2016

Only some are able to ever identify their specific passion, far fewer are able to achieve, and only a select handful are able to make their passion their life's work; Judi Dench is one of those few. When I asked her why, despite a career spanning more than five and a half decades, and nearly every major acting award the world over, she continues to return to the plays of William Shakespeare, in a tone exceedingly gentle, yet slightly dismayed that the question need even be asked, she said, 'Cause that's my passion, Matt.'

BWW Review: THE BOOK OF MORMON Raises Cain at the Orpheum
by Caroline Sposto - Mar 18, 2016

Typically the press night buzz at the Memphis Orpheum starts in the lobby . . . or at least inside the foyer. Last night, however, it radiated for two square blocks in all directions as Mormon missionaries turned out in force to meet and greet theater goers. These clean-cut, youth, armed with literature and disarming smiles had driven all the way from Little Rock. They weren't protesting the show, just using the opportunity to tell their side the world Trey Parker and Matt Stone (Creators of South Park) and Robert Lopez, composer of 'Avenue Q' so famously lampooned.

Norma Burnson Lectures at Chicago Public Library, Donates 940 Books
by BWW News Desk - Mar 1, 2016

In January, 2016, during the week of Martin Luther King's Birthday, The Chicago Public Library children and patrons had a Wonderful Time downloading Norma Burnson's second book, 'Sustainable Food for Globe, Everyday People Producing Food in Abundance.' The total number of downloaded books amounted to 940, making it equal to a donation of $6570.00. Mrs. Burnson is a regular visitor to the Clearing Branch of Chicago Public Library, where she enjoys lecturing and reading from her books for members of the Midwest Garden Society. Her second book in the Sustainable Food for the Globe series is doing extremely well. In February, 2016, Norma's book received a review by Dr. David Chalk, d. Tec, LCE, ADE, a renowned business specialist from British Columbia, Canada. Dr. Chalk is acknowledged worldwide as one of the brightest minds on the planet today. In his review, Dr. Chalk stated, 'An eye-opener. An inspirational book by Norma Burnson that offers knowledge and insight on the world and food sustainability. Norma offers much rich information that will change your view on how we can sustain the planet. It is a real treat to read.' In this second volume, Burnson interviews sustainability leaders worldwide who offer a myriad of ways to save the planet through sustainability, using everything from aquaponics to organic community gardens, children's lectures and food-recovery systems. The locales covered span the globe from Pakistan to the UK and, of course, her home base, the US, but the principles and how-to knowledge in the books can be applied anywhere in the world. Mrs. Burnson's third book, 'Sustainable Food for the Globe, Future Pioneers: The Children,' will focus on the many health benefits for children who garden. One of the collaborators, Hunter, is a young autistic boy who found great peace and happiness when gardening. After taking up gardening, Hunter became relaxed enough to actually have long conversations with his parents. 'Ah, Mother Nature is wise,' said Mrs. Burnson. 'All of my books focus on one obvious issue: All living creatures on earth must eat to stay alive. Educating and empowering the future generation is what my third book is all about. I believe it is vital for children to learn about permaculture and organic gardening, how to revitalize the soil and to live sustainably, for they will keep our planet vibrant and alive for centuries to come.' Mrs. Burnson's third book is scheduled for release on Earth Day, 2017. For small peeks at the madness behind the scenes prior to the publication of a book, visit Norma's blog at For more information, visit: About Norma Burnson Mrs. Burnson received The International Women's Leadership Association's Delegate Award in 2013, in recognition of services rendered as a U.S. Navy Veteran and for demonstrating leadership in national and international business arenas; for dedication to her community as a college professor and mentor; for being a sustainable food activist and humanitarian. She is the Founder and Senior Partner at Burnson & Associates, LP and Director of Fundraising, Energime University, an innovative institution that teaches sustainability subjects worldwide.

BWW Blog: Nanjibah Khan - Growing in the Theatre
by Guest Blogger: Nanjibah Khan - Jun 6, 2016

My interest in the theatre had started at a very young age. The place where I finally pursued the theatre was at Parkway Middle School of the Arts. It feels like I had walked in here just a few days ago, but the fact that we're leaving in a few days is still surprising to me. I have noticed that a lot of us had started off as mere amateurs. We just decided to try something that seemed fun! But over the years, we've got to see each other grow and improve in so many aspects… And it's fascinating how far everyone has come. (more...)

THE WIZARD OF OZ opens The MUNY's 98th season this year, and it's a lively and colorful production that provides an enjoyable experience for kids of all ages. This is an excellent presentation of one of The MUNY's most beloved shows, filled with fine performances and enough action to keep even the tiniest of tykes fully engaged. Yes, I know the unseasonably hot weather we're currently experiencing is a consideration for a lot of patrons, but with the fans running at full blast, you'll find it's a lot more comfortable than you would expect. My son and I had a blast, and this is the fourth production of the musical he's seen, and as he said, easily the best. It's a perfect show to take the family to, and one I know that you'll have an absolutely Wonderful Time seeing. It's also a larger than life spectacle that fits the expansive MUNY stage like a glove.

by Kristen Morale - Jul 6, 2016

The Chatham Drama Guild, Chatham's own community theater group which brings a variety of entertaining performances to its audiences each year, presents Gilbert and Sullivan in Chatham: a musical revue dedicated to bringing forth an appreciation (or perhaps an even greater one depending on how familiar you are with the pair's works) of Gilbert and Sullivan musicals well and lesser-known alike. Actors at the Guild, many of whose familiar faces appear once again this time around, have brought many such past revues to life, giving audiences the chance to enjoy a pleasant, entertaining night out while giving the chance to become privy to different music and composers that may have otherwise gone unacknowledged.

Thou Hath No Fear to Shed All in Peregrine's FULL MONTY
by Kristen Morale - Jul 24, 2016

With a book by Terrence McNally, music and lyrics by David Yazbek and now under the direction of (and also featuring choreography by) Terry Norgeot, The Full Monty has arrived at the Provincetown Theatre, in association with Peregrine Theatre Ensemble. Based on the cult-hit film of the same name, this ten-time Tony-Award nominee is one of the most unconventionally 'real' musicals you are ever bound to say; it is a surprisingly dramatic story trapped in the body of a semi-comedic musical, and the songs are an added bonus in bringing both its characters and the audience away from real-life issues by the comedic way in which they are dealt with.
