BWW Review: Disney's MARY POPPINS Musical Wows Audiences at the Norris Theatre
by Shari Barrett - Sep 30, 2015

The beloved Mary Poppins character has been on a journey with children of all ages since 1934, first as a popular children's book series by P.L. Travers, then as the 1964 Academy Award-winning and most popular Disney film of all time (after Walt Disney managed to convince the author to allow him to adapt her book), and finally as a hit stage musical which is now wowing audiences at the 450-seat Norris Theatre on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. With brand new breath-taking musical numbers and amazing flying and graphic effects, this spectacular production deserves the only word I can think of to describe it: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Photo Flash: RUTHLESS! Writer Joel Paley Takes the Stage as 'Tina Denmark' Off-Broadway
by BWW News Desk - Sep 3, 2015

Joel Paley has earned accolades for over two decades with RUTHLESS! The Musical, for which he wrote the award-winning book and lyrics. He also directed the original 1992 production at the Player's Theatre, as well as in L.A., South Beach, the record-breaking concert event starring Bernadette Peters, and the current smash Off-Broadway production at St. Luke's Theatre. If that isn't enough, Paley is also starring in the show this week as the 8-year-old murderous, uber-talented Tina Denmark. The role is normally played by Tori Murray who is taking a brief, well-deserved vacation as she prepares to enter sixth grade next week. She's set to return to the role tomorrow, and Joel Paley will offer audiences his showstopping take on the role one more time tonight at 7 PM. When asked why the 59-year-old Paley was interested in stepping into this seemingly impossible assignment, he merely shrugged and explained, 'The show must go on.' Scroll down for photos! (more...)

Lifetime's 'Unathorized' film franchise continues this summer with the original movie The Unauthorized Full House Story (#UnauthorizedFullHouse).

Check out the first photo of the cast below! (more...)

BWW Review: SATCHMO AT THE WALDORF Offers an Insightful Look at the Jazz Icon's Remarkable Life
by Shari Barrett - May 28, 2015

John Douglas Thompson gives a tour de force multiple-character solo performance in SATCHMO AT THE WALDORF at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts. It is easy to see why the New York Times described Thompson as one of the most compelling classical stage actors of his generation after witnessing his remarkable ability to totally transform himself into three very distinct and richly defined characters: jazz great Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong, his mob-connected and career-long manager Joe Glaser, and fellow jazz musician Miles Davis.

BWW Reviews: Disappointing DONTRELL, WHO KISSED THE SEA at Cleveland Public Theatre
by Roy Berko - May 24, 2015

About fifteen years ago, an African American student on a Semester at Sea around the world educational cruise jumped overboard. The ship was sailing toward the Suez Canal, with Africa on the port side. The ship turned in the Gulf of Suez, and miraculously found the college student. The young man, after arriving back, stated that he had jumped overboard because he 'wanted to touch the water, that touched the land from which his forefathers were taken into slavery. He wanted to be reunited with his history.' (more...)

Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at Howard Collado in GOLONDRINAS (SWALLOWS) at La MaMa
by BWW News Desk - Mar 17, 2015

On March 15, the majority party in Venezuela gave President Nicolas Maduro the power to temporarily govern Venezuela by decree, thanks to a law described by opposition activists as a measure to cover up the government's weaknesses and to subjugate the Venezuelan people. It is the second time Maduro has been given such powers and the late populist Hugo Chavez, Maduro's mentor and predecessor, ruled by fiat four times in his 14-year tenure. In her modern tragedy 'Golondrinas (Swallows),' Venezuelan expatriate playwright/director/actor Aminta De Lara likens the nation's acquiescence to the submissiveness of a family to a dominating and abusive father. De Lara will direct the piece, in a translation by Francine Jacome, at La MaMa April 16 to 26. Scroll down for a first look at him onstage! (more...)

BWW Reviews: Compelling THE PIANIST OF WILLESDEN LANE at Cleveland Play House

BWW Reviews: BECKY SHAW, Comedy of Bad Manners, Splendid at Dobama
by Roy Berko - Mar 9, 2015

Gina Gionfriddo, the author of BECKY SHAW, now on stage at Dobama Theatre, is one of the new breed of playwrights who reflect topics relevant to today, cleverly construct their writings, and uses language that shimmers with naturalism. They don't use stage language or formats like Arthur Miller or Eugene O'Neill, or the oft-present symbolism of Tennessee Williams, nor the existential philosophy of Edward Albee. Gionfriddo, along with such modernists as Neil LaBute and Rajiv Joseph, push the envelope, using real people interacting to highlight their foibles and weaknesses. (more...)

by Stephen Sorokoff - Dec 8, 2014

There were some temporary fences set up around The Carlyle yesterday. I knew that Steve Tyrell who's appearing in the Cafe was selling out, and it was a difficult ticket but this wasSunday night his day off. I guess it was to control the entry into Bemelmans where Jim Caruso and Billy Stritch have been entertaining overflow crowds. Of course it was for Prince William and Duchess Kate who are staying at The Carlyle during there visit to New York City. (more...)
