by BWW News Desk - Oct 28, 2016

A multiple Tony Award-winning theatrical tour-de-force, Assassins combines Sondheim's signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music with a panoramic story of our nation's culture of celebrity and the violent means some will use to obtain it, embodied by America's four successful and five would-be presidential assassins. Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny, Assassins is perhaps the most controversial musical ever written. The show is currently running at Manatee Performing Arts Center, and BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below! (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Oct 24, 2016

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...)

BWW Review: Georgetown Palace at the Playhouse Theatre Brings the Classic ARSENIC AND OLD LACE to the StageBWW Review: Georgetown Palace at the Playhouse Theatre Brings the Classic ARSENIC AND OLD LACE to the Stage
by Amy Bradley - Oct 2, 2016

ARSENIC AND OLD LACE by American playwright Joseph Kesselring, is a classic staple for modern Theatre enthusiasts. Taking into account the context of the political humor and dark comedy, it is hard to believe this show was first brought to the stage in 1941. A New York Times review of it's opening night stated the play was, 'so funny that none of us will ever forget it.' Best known for it's film of the same decade, this adaptation stars Cary Grant and is directed by the celebrated Frank Capra. After hitting the big screen, this dark comedic farce has been brought to a much wider audience and became a local theatre favorite. (more...)
