BWW Review: CHARLOTTE'S WEB Brings Down-Home Charm To a Classic StoryBWW Review: CHARLOTTE'S WEB Brings Down-Home Charm To a Classic Story
by Lacey Cannon Gonzales - Oct 25, 2016

CHARLOTTE'S WEB is the stage adaptation of E.B. White's classic story. Adapted by Joseph Robinette, it was originally published as a play in 1983 and enjoyed Broadway run in 1989 after the addition of musical numbers by Charles Strouse. Zach Theatre's production directed by Nat Miller goes back to Robinette's original script, minus the broadway numbers, and infuses it with its own down-home charm. (more...)

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...)

There is a chill in the air and winter is on its way.  Whether the glow in your home comes from Chanukah candles or the bright lights around the Christmas tree, you surely appreciate that this is a time of year when tradition is everywhere you look.  One of the most popular holiday traditions is "The Nutcracker." Peter Tchaikovsky's classic was first presented in Europe back in 1892. You may be familiar with productions by The New York City Ballet, or other repertory companies but the interpretation of The New Jersey Foundation for Dance and Theatre Arts is in a different category and is not to be missed. They have been presenting their spectacular rendition of "The Nutcracker" in the North Jersey area for 23 years.  The show is considered one of New Jersey's finest dance and theatrical presentations.  Reviews of the performance have hailed it as a superb production of "The Nutcracker" with a twist.  The "twists" are director Nancy King's special touches and whimsical additions. "It's fast moving", she says, "It's a story that has something for everybody, whether you are a child seeing a ballet for the first time or someone who has seen many performances." It would be impossible not to get excited talking to King. Her love for dance and theater come across in every word she speaks. The results are a Nutcracker that combines many different styles of dance and musical theater. The opening scene is a musical theater production of an early 1900's village celebration, including holiday vocalists and specially choreographed dances. (more...)

by Shari Barrett - Sep 28, 2016

The great genius of contemporary musical theater, creator of Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and Company, Stephen Sondheim leads audiences on a tuneful revue of presidential assassins and would-be killers from John Wilkes Booth to John Hinckley. The performance is guided by the Proprietor (brilliantly portrayed by Will Shure) who takes you through a most unusual musical history lesson in the form of a carnival game called "Shoot the Prez - Win a Prize" during which the sounds of each era accompany riveting portrayals of history's most impassioned and deranged. Thought-provoking and darkly delightful, ASSASSINS won five Tony Awards in its first revival on Broadway and remains one of the most controversial Broadway musicals ever written. (more...)

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...)

by Shari Barrett - May 11, 2016

Much like the much-loved musical "Fiddler on the Roof," IN THE HEIGHTS focuses on family love and traditions being challenged by the beliefs of the next generation. In our modern world where a good education can make all the difference, what does it take for a poor family to put a cherished only child through an expensive university? And what happens when the student cannot keep up and drops out and gets romantically involved with someone her parents don't think is good enough? And what happens when a neighborhood is challenged by urban renewal and its flavor is about to be lost? Can it be Saved when local shop owners must leave their beloved neighborhood when rents rise?
