BWW Reviews: POLTERGEIST Solid, Well-Acted, But UnnecessaryBWW Reviews: POLTERGEIST Solid, Well-Acted, But Unnecessary
by Natalie de la Garza - May 27, 2015

POLTERGEIST is a solid, well-acted film with creepy clowns, evil entities, and a few sincere scares. It's not a complete waste of your time or money, but like many remakes you'll question why it's necessary. Consider waiting for it on Netflix or, if you insist on seeing it on the big screen, choose the matinee and avoid paying extra for 3D. (more...)

Interview with Director Giovanna SardelliInterview with Director Giovanna Sardelli
by Roundabout Theatre Company - Jan 16, 2015

Ted Sod: Will you tell us about yourself? Where you were born and educated? When did you decide you wanted to become a theatre director? Giovanna Sardelli: I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, when it was really just a desert town, so I didn't get to see much theatre. Right before I graduated, I said, "Oh my god, I'm about to get a degree in theatre and I've never seen a play." My family sent me on one of those theatre trips where you go to London and Edinburgh and see twenty-one plays in twenty days. That trip made me realize that I needed to go to grad school. I got accepted into the graduate acting program at NYU when Zelda Fichandler was running it and Ron Van Lieu was the acting teacher. I started my career as an actor but was never quite satisfied. One day, I was sitting in Zelda's office having a crisis and Zelda said, "You've always had the eye of a director, I think you should direct. Why don't you come back for another year of education?" At that time, NYU had a directing lab where they would invite three former grads of grad acting for one year of free training in directing. Everything I learned at NYU just gelled, and my career as a director has been so much easier than my career as an actress. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Apr 23, 2015

In Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, which will mark the Wilma's 11th production of a work by Tom Stoppard, minor characters take center stage as they journey on a boat taking Prince Hamlet to England with players from the royal court. As these characters unknowingly sail to a fate Shakespeare has already scripted for them, arguments of free will and determinism abound, all set to the constant travel game of flipping coins. In this battle of wits, Stoppard's characteristic wordplay and case of mistaken identities create a spectacle that's philosophical, clownish, and complete with a pirate-ambush. (more...)
