BWW Review: Must See AN OCTOROON Will Confound and Maybe Frustrate Some at DobamaBWW Review: Must See AN OCTOROON Will Confound and Maybe Frustrate Some at Dobama
by Roy Berko - Oct 24, 2016

Theater represents the era from which it comes! In 1859, when THE OCTOROON opened in New York, the United States was in racial chaos. The slaves of the South had been 'freed,' but, in reality, they weren't free from their years of enslavement. Yes, blacks, the only mass group of people who came to this country against their free will, were the center of much controversy. (more...)

BWW Feature: WORDS MATTER Challenges the Status QuoBWW Feature: WORDS MATTER Challenges the Status Quo
by Caroline Sposto - Sep 3, 2016

I live in Memphis by choice. One of the reasons is that the arts community is not only vibrant, but also concerned, aware and purposeful. About 20 percent of our adult population in this area is functionally illiterate. This doesn't just hurt them in the job market. It affects their ability to life up to realize their potential and live full lives. Literacy Mid-South is committed to changing that. (more...)

BWW Review: The City Theatre Closes Season By Opening a LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORSBWW Review: The City Theatre Closes Season By Opening a LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
by Joni Lorraine - Aug 25, 2016

'On the twenty-third day of the month of September in an early year of a decade not too long before our own, the human race suddenly encountered a deadly threat to its very existence. And this terrifying enemy surfaced, as such enemies often do, in the seemingly most innocent and unlikely of places.' And so goes the prologue to the popular small cast musical LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS. Based on the 1960 movie directed by Roger Corman, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS by writer Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken, is the marriage of a 60's love story and the apocalyptic sci-fi films of the era set to music. The result is a crowd pleasing intimate campy black musical comedy. Its success led to the musical being produced as a movie in 1986 with Rick Moranis, Vincent Gardenia, Ellen Greene and Steve Martin in the lead roles. (more...)

by Allison Rambler - Aug 10, 2016

As the opening night of The Belmont Theater's 'Side Show' quickly approaches, the activity in the black box studio has increased ten-fold. The set is becoming more elaborate, the swell of music from the orchestra now fills the air, and the costumes are coming together piece by piece. Tech week has begun, and it can both an exciting and somewhat stressful time for any production. As an actor, it can sometimes be difficult to lose sight of your character and even the meaning behind the show itself among the bustle and flurry of tech week. That is why I felt that the time had come to interview some of the actors in our show, in order to provide a bit of insight into their characters and to explain from their perspective the importance of a musical such as 'Side Show.' And for Nik Olson, this was no small task. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jun 26, 2016

Let the mischief and merriment begin in this sizzling summer reimagining of Shakespeare's most popular romantic comedy. In just one fantastic enchanted forest night, four magical stories are cleverly woven together: the marriage of the Athenian duke to the Amazon queen; the battle of the king and queen of the fairies; the lust and lunacy of four young lovers; and the hilarious antics of side-show actors who must stage a most important play. Enter a vibrant and bawdy world where fairies fly, a donkey bursts into song, and irresistible spells make your perspective on love turn on a dime. City Theatre's summer production of A Midsummer Night's Dream will be an original and way-out theatrical experience you don't want to miss. (more...)

BWW Review: THE SPITFIRE GRILL Examines What It Takes to Find Your Own Colors of ParadiseBWW 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...)
