by BWW News Desk - Sep 22, 2014

This fall, Seattle Opera brings audiences one of the most popular operas of all time: Don Giovanni. Set to glorious music, Don Giovanni tells a cautionary tale of an unrepentant Casanova who must pay the price for his misdeeds. Seattle Weekly called Seattle Opera's production "Sleek, chic and colorful" when it first played to packed houses in 2007. The Everett Herald wrote: "Seattle's production pulses with scenic delights and compelling staging that never drags. It's a big story to tell: Don Juan seduces and worse, even murders, without remorse.… In this production, it's a great ride." (more...)

BWW Reviews: Storytelling at Its Finest in Out Loud Theatre's METAMORPHOSESBWW Reviews: Storytelling at Its Finest in Out Loud Theatre's METAMORPHOSES
by Robert Barossi - Oct 6, 2014

The only thing that is permanent is change. Change is inevitable. It's going to happen, and stories of how things and people change have been told for centuries. Mary Zimmerman's Metamorphoses, presented by Out Loud Theatre at Artists' Exchange in Cranston, is a collection of ancient myths, all of which somehow involve a change or altering. What hasn't changed is how powerful and important these stories of change are. It's a true testament to the power of myth that these stories still hold up in our modern age. They are just as relevant and relatable today as when they were written by Ovid, a Latin poet who is believed to have completed his collection of poems around 8 A.D. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Upstream Theater's Masterful Production of ANTIGONEBWW Reviews: Upstream Theater's Masterful Production of ANTIGONE
by Chris Gibson - Oct 15, 2014

I've been privileged to see several versions of Greek playwright Sophocles' 2500 year old work ANTIGONE over the years. All of them have been good, and each of them has been uniquely different. A version I caught at a college even went so far as to incorporate the traditional masks that were utilized for the original productions. But, David R. Slavitt's translation is, by far, the most intriguing and accessible version I've ever seen. With the inclusion of a dash of humor to the proceedings he's also managed to enhance the dramatic depth of the tale. Upstream Theater's current production is masterful and powerful in equal measure, providing a memorable experience that demands to be seen. (more...)

Film to Honor Theatrical Visionary Reza AbdohFilm to Honor Theatrical Visionary Reza Abdoh
by BWW News Desk - Nov 9, 2014

Producer Adam Soch is pleased to announce the making of a documentary film that will share the extraordinary work of the late theatrical visionary, Reza Abdoh, with a larger audience. Soch commented, 'Every so often there is an artist whose body of work is so profound and impactful that it needs to be brought to the forefront, even twenty years after his passing. In this case, the May 2015 premier will mark the twentieth anniversary of Reza's death.' A 1990 Los Angeles Times Magazine article described Abdoh as 'a genuine visionary, a reincarnation of the 1960s confrontational, experiments of communal ensembles such as the Living and Open theaters . . . He's not out to make a deal. . . . He's determined to make art in an era when even the word artist is under siege.' Soch explained further, 'Before his death of AIDS at the young age of 32, Abdoh had created an impressive body of stage productions known for their sensory overload, ferocious energy and hallucinatory dreamscapes. With his company Dar A Luz, formed in 1991, Abdoh created plays that have made a major impact on experimental theatre worldwide.' Abdoh and his troupe often performed in downtrodden storefronts, warehouses, lofts, and abandoned hotels. With titles like 'Peep Show,' 'Pasos en la Obscuridad' (Footsteps in the Darkness), 'The Hip-Hop Waltz of eurydice,' 'Bogeyman,' 'Tight, Right, White,' 'The Law of Remains,' and his critically acclaimed 'Quotations From a Ruined City,' his performances provided a glimpse into his personal outrage toward many aspects of American life. Abdoh's work is still revered and referenced in the theater community today and according to Soch, 'Reza's work has become regularly incorporated into college and university syllabi. It has become legendary. One of the goals of this project is to provide a means for students and theater lovers to get a true sense of what Abdoh's work was like. This documentary will offer a portrait of the world and work of Abdoh and his company, Dar a Luz. The film will feature never before seen excerpts of Abdoh's most important pieces alongside interviews with Abdoh himself, his collaborators, critics, friends and family. We are very fortunate to have access to a rich archive of video materials that were recorded over the course of his career -more than 300 hours of live performance, rehearsals and interviews.' Soch continued, 'Early in Reza's career, there were three amazing people who recognized his talent and supported Reza unconditionally in his theatrical creations: Alan Mandell, Diane White and Marta Holen. It is an incredible honor to have their continued trust, loyalty and support as Executive Producers of our film. Without their love for Reza and his work, this project would not be possible and we are deeply grateful.' To ensure the completion of the project, Soch has created a Kickstarter Campaign to finance the final stages of the film's production: editing, promotion and distribution. Soch explained, 'To date, approximately $8,000 of the $35,000 budget has been raised. The Kickstarter Campaign ends November 30, and we've got quite a ways to go.' Potential donors can gain a better understanding of the project and Abdoh's work by viewing a six-minute trailer that showcases the documentary's style and content on the Kickstarter website at http://kck.st/1wPrn1W. Adam Soch is an award-winning filmmaker and producer with projects in TV at Classic Arts Showcase (www.classicartsshowcase.org), video, and theatre productions worldwide. Mr. Soch is one of four founders of the International Television channel available in the United States, Canada and Mexico. The ARTS Channel, with millions of daily viewers, focuses on highlighting the disciplines, pleasures and wonders of classic arts such as ballet, opera, theater, dance and film/video, through the power of television.

Thanks to enthusiastic critical and audience response, Custom Made Theatre Company is extending the run of Edward Albee's Pulitzer Prize-winning Three Tall Women through December 14. It is one of Albee's most personal plays; he continues to explore themes of mortality, the elasticity of personality, and the ways we deceive ourselves through the character of a 92-year old woman on the verge of death, engaging with two younger selves - a knowing 56-year old and a contemptuous 26-year old. Three Tall Women challenges audiences, asking us to be as honest, fierce and unblinking as Mr. Albee in looking at how we live, and how we die. (more...)
