by Lily Lim - Oct 23, 2016

This fall, the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts transformed much of its campus into a lively Little Italy themed street party in celebration of For The Record: Scorsese - American Crime Requiem. The Wallis and For The Record-the acclaimed company that began in a small bar in East Hollywood in 2010 and whose performances have quickly become must see shows-combined forces to pay homage to the visceral world of Martin Scorsese in a new co production that revolutionized the musical theater experience and brought the legendary filmmaker's epic soundtracks to life in a new generation cabaret, from September 21 through October 16. From the moment audiences arrived at The Wallis, the immersive experience began with special pre-show festivities, continued through an exhilarating performance, and finished with post-show gatherings that featured specially curated entertainment. BroadwayWorld was at the final performance of the production, and caught some of the most exciting moments on camera. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jun 29, 2016

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is a delightful celebration of the overwhelming power of love.

Beatrice hates Benedick, and Benedick despises Beatrice, but the more they bicker and fight, the deeper they will fall in love. This is a laugh-out-loud comedy for all ages. BroadwayWorld has a first look at Iris Theatre's production below! (more...)
