BWW Review:  PUNK ROCK at The Odyssey Theatre Gets Top Marks for a Jolly Good ShowBWW Review: PUNK ROCK at The Odyssey Theatre Gets Top Marks for a Jolly Good Show
by George Brietigam - Mar 27, 2017

BWW Review: BUS STOP at Jewel Box Theatre is a Trip Worth TakingBWW Review: BUS STOP at Jewel Box Theatre is a Trip Worth Taking
by Robert Barossi - Mar 6, 2017

Let's face it, long bus rides can be an at-times uncomfortable and awkward journey. The seats are not always conducive to comfort and if there are lots of people, it's going to get cramped. But, as the saying goes, it's not about the journey, it's about the destination, and while the ride might be bumpy, getting to our destination is often rewarding and exciting. William Inge's Bus Stop, now playing at Jewel Box Theatre, is a bit like a long bus journey. The ride might have its ups and downs, but it's the destination, the pay-off, that makes it a journey well worth taking. (more...)

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley continues its 2016/2017 season with the Regional Premiere of Velina Hasu Houston's international comic drama, Calligraphy. Two continents, two cultures, two estranged sisters, and two cousins determined to bridge the gap between them, are all boldly calligraphed in this free-wheeling work set in Los Angeles and Tokyo, past and present.  East and West collide as Japanese free-spirit Sayuri and biracial American Hiromi care for their feuding mothers, whom they gamely hope to reunite before it is too late. Directed by TheatreWorks Associate Artistic Director Leslie Martinson, Calligraphy will be presented by TheatreWorks Silicon Valley March 8-April 2 at Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto. For tickets ($35-$59) and more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (650) 463-1960. (more...)

BWW Review: IN THE HEIGHTS Explodes with Latino Verve at Beck CenterBWW Review: IN THE HEIGHTS Explodes with Latino Verve at Beck Center
by Roy Berko - Feb 16, 2016

At the start of IN THE HEIGHTS, now in its locally produced premiere at Beck Center, Usnavi chases away Graffiti Pete, a graffiti artist, from in front of his Washington Heights 'bodega' (Spanish for a small neighbor grocery store). As the young owner raps, the lyrics and music set the mood for what is a three-day visit to the largely Hispanic/Latino neighborhood on the brink of change. It's a place where families bond, neighborhood ties are strong, and the George Washington Bridge casts its shadow across the hopes and dreams of the residents. (more...)
