BWW Reviews: First Night of TWELFTH NIGHT Delights at Jobsite Review BWW Reviews: First Night of TWELFTH NIGHT Delights at Jobsite
by Desiree Fantal - January 13, 2015

I'm prepared to lose friends as I type this, but I'm actually not a huge of Will S. Perhaps attending a Shakespeare camp in my youth would've lead me in a different path, but in the past I'd spend so much time sifting through and interpreting the language, that the overall impact of the story was lost. However, this production seemed covertly aimed at changing my mind. (more...)

BWW Review: Fringe Favorite SEASONS Brings New Work Excitement to Florida Tour Review BWW Review: Fringe Favorite SEASONS Brings New Work Excitement to Florida Tour
by Matt Tamanini - October 06, 2014

There is something exhilarating about sitting in the audience watching a new work that you think could eventually become something special. More so than any other artistic medium, pieces of musical theatre require extensive gestation periods, sometimes with years numbering in the decades. So to see a musical, somewhat early on in that process, presents an exciting opportunity to be a part of its growth. Such was the case when I saw SEASONS at Orlando Shakespeare's Mandell Theatre, which is in the midst of a state-wide tour. (more...)
