BWW Reviews: The Jewish Museum Revisits Post-Modern Breakthroughs with OTHER PRIMARY STRUCTURES
by Patrick Kennedy - May 5, 2014

An 'exhibition about an exhibition,' OTHER PRIMARY STRUCTURES both puts a new spin on a defining moment in modern sculpture and achieves entertaining experiences all its own. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THE GOOD BODY is Girl Talk with a Message
by Anya Sebastian - Apr 28, 2014

THE GOOD BODY, performed for one night only at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, is Eve Ensler's younger, less well-known companion piece to THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES. It follows a similar format - a series of monologues told by a cast of women from a representative cross section of races, backgrounds and nationalities. But this time, rather than focusing on just one (previously taboo) part of the female anatomy, Ensler has broadened her scope to take on the entire female form. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Chekhov Meets Fellini in WHITE MARRIAGE at The Odyssey
by Shari Barrett - Apr 13, 2014

Set in Poland circa 1890, WHITE MARRIAGE is a surreal and erotic coming-of-age fairytale that follows a young girl's poignant emergence into womanhood and frightened resistance to her impending marriage. Two sisters, sensitive Bianca (Kate Dalton) and precocious Pauline (Emily Goss), are on the verge of adulthood. Bianca is betrothed to Benjamin (Austin Rogers) and the preparations for her imminent wedding send the girls into a flurry of excitement and confusion. (more...)

FIRST LOOK: Bailey Mason Journeys From Sex Worker to Healer in HOOKED, Opening 4/27
by Shari Barrett - Apr 11, 2014

Every once in a while an extraordinary story and performer comes along where we can explore the human condition from a new perspective. Such a performer is Bailey Mason and such a show is !HOOKED which blends wacky yet real comedy with episodes of somber events from Bailey's life. She is a strong person who has experienced more than she would have wanted, but came out better for it in the end. (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Sherz Aletaha - Feb 10, 2014

BroadwayWorld, so much to tell you! First, I'll start with what's happening this week. On Thursday, 2/13, the cast is heading to Broadway Sessions. Yippee hooray! 'What's Broadway Sessions?' Thanks for asking, friend. Let me tell you all about it. The wonderfully talented, Ben Cameron, hosts a variety hour/open mic on Thursday evenings at the Laurie Beechman. It usually features certain performers from the musical theatre world and this week, we're up! The 'Disaster!' cast will be there after our show, and we hope you'll come hang out with us (and even get in on the fun and sing too!). Head for all of the info. If you really love us, you'll come to Disaster! at 7pm and then continue the fun by heading down the street to the Beechman. (more...)

BWW Reviews: PORGY AND BESS Enthralls at the Palace
by Roy Berko - Feb 6, 2014

It might surprise many to find that the original 1935 Broadway production of 'PORGY AND BESS' ran only 124 performances. The reasons were many including the all Black cast, some of the overtones of the script were perceived by some to be 'too Negro,' the opera format was considered 'not Broadway,' while some railed that it 'had racial overtones.' Other suppositions were that the heavy dependence of a strong story line was not a familiar format during the era of escapist comedies, follies and vaudeville. Not to be overlooked was the fact that the production lasted four hours, with two intermissions. (more...)

BWW Blog: Sherz Aletaha of Off-Broadway's DISASTER! - Glitter Makes Everything Better
by Guest Blogger: Sherz Aletaha - Feb 3, 2014

Happy February, everybody! A moment of truth, this is my least favorite month of the year. It's cold, it's dark, our senses are assaulted by Valentine's Day (barf), but luckily it's short, and I get to spend it doing pelvic thrusts and body rolls Off-Broadway. Silver lining! (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Lady Sees Dead People in NIGHT WATCH at Theatre 40
by Shari Barrett - Feb 2, 2014

NIGHT WATCH is one of the best productions I have seen at Theatre 40, a brilliantly written script visualized and presented by a talented production team and cast who truly understand the material and what it takes to keep you at the edge of your seat, trying to figure out just who has done what to whom. There's an array of suspects with a twist ending worthy of O. Henry. (more...)

BWW Blog: Sherz Aletaha of Off-Broadway's DISASTER! - Joan River's Worst Dressed List
by Guest Blogger: Sherz Aletaha - Jan 28, 2014

Last week was a pretty great one on the Barricuda. We survived another snow storm (Why, oh why, oh why-o? Why did I ever leave Southern California...) and luckily New York did not stand us up. We had a great audience who trekked out into the grossness to laugh at us. Even pianist and late night sidekick extraordinaire, Paul Shaffer, endured the Polar Vortex. Fun Fact! He played on the original track for Barry Manilow's 'Daybreak' which happens to be our closing number. Full circle. (more...)

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 9/25/13 - Allison Williams
by Rachel Stone - Sep 25, 2013

Allison Allison Allison. You are so gorgeous and I love your chic, classic fashion sense. But, and I am so sorry there is a but, I find this Ralph Lauren dress to be almost too simple. Do I think she looks beautiful? Yes. Is the dress stunning in it's simplicity? Yes. That's not my issue. It's her styling. (more...)

Fashion Photo of the Day 9/23/13 - Michelle Dockery
by Rachel Stone - Sep 23, 2013

There was so much awesome fashion from last night's 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, that it was very hard to pick just one person to feature. I loved almost all of the gowns except for a few odd choices I could have lived without (sorry Zosia Mamet). But let's get back to the pretty dresses! There was so much color, so many cutouts, so many daring nude/pastel choices that I decided it was impossible to chose to just Fashion Photo of the Day. So get ready, each day this week I will pay homage to one of my favorite dressed stars from TV's biggest night. (more...)

Fashion Photo of the Day 9/20/13 - Natalie Portman
by Rachel Stone - Sep 20, 2013

I am having a moment with this Christian Dior dress on the always gorgeous Natalie Portman. I am so in love with everything about this dress I don't even know where to begin. I have to be honest, I went to the collection of photos from last night's New York City Ballet Fall Gala to feature another actress' look. But then I saw this photo and it stopped me in my tracks. Sorry not sorry about it! (more...)
