BWW Reviews: World Premiere TALHOTBLOND Proves Everyone Lies Online
by Shari Barrett - Mar 29, 2014

Any of us who have engaged in online chatting knows that sex and obsession, indulged through an erotic relationship on the Internet, can lead to disappointing or explosive consequences. You only have to follow today's headlines about young girls bullied online who commit suicide just to escape the continuous taunting, with helpless parents unable to help or even unaware of the problem until it's too late. TALHOTBLOND certainly is a cautionary tale for the times in which we live. (more...)

BWW Reviews: PASSION PLAY Explores the Line Between Authentic Identity and Scripted Performance
by Shari Barrett - Feb 14, 2014

It's been awhile since I can honestly say I was emotionally overwhelmed by a night of theater. There are so many thoughts wandering in and out of my mind that I hardly know where to begin except to say that religion, politics and theater collide superlatively under the imaginative and quick-paced direction of Bart DeLorenzo in the Los Angeles premiere of PASSION PLAY at the Odyssey Theatre.

Fashion Photo of the Day 12/11/13 - Michelle Dockery
by Rachel Stone - Dec 11, 2013

Ahhhh it's Lady Mary!!! I mean, Michelle Dockery. Sorry, I forgot for a second there that Downton Abbey is not real (but whhhyyy!). Dockery has a lot to live up to in real life as she plays one of the most sought after and glamorous characters of the show. Lucky for us, she never ever disappoints when it comes to her real life fashion. This week's New York City cast photo call for season 4 is a perfect example! (more...)


Fashion Photo of the Day 10/22/13 - Darby Stanchfield
by Rachel Stone - Oct 22, 2013

We all know I love a good jumpsuit but Darby Stanchfield's is too amazing to be classified as just 'good.' First of all, I am already in love with Stanchfield from watching her as Abby Whelan every week on Scandal. How can you not love a fiery red head who is smart, sassy and works for Olivia Pope? But in real life, Stanchfield doesn't have to dress as conservatively as her Scandal character. Case in point, this to-die-for white jumpsuit with cutout details. (more...)

Fashion Photo of the Day 4/9/13 - Kiernan Shipka
by Rachel Stone - Apr 9, 2013

I have loved watching Kiernan Shipka grow up on Mad Men over the years. When I watched Sunday night's season premiere I was so excited to see how grown up and mature she has become. She has gone from an adorable girl to a beautiful young woman! Aside from watching Sally Draper grow up on screen, I have loved watching her fashion sense evolve in real life as well. (more...)

Photo Flash: First Look at Theater for the New City's SKYBOX
by BWW News Desk - Dec 2, 2012

If 'Adam's Rib' and 'Moneyball' mated and begat a play, it might be 'Skybox,' a comedy of class warfare and the battle of the sexes that is set in the luxury box of a major league baseball park.

'Skybox' has been extended at Theater for the New City through December 9, 2012. Get a first look at the show in the photos below! (more...)
