BWW Reviews: BURIED CHILD Makes for a Trying Visit to a Slice of Demented Americana Photos BWW Reviews: BURIED CHILD Makes for a Trying Visit to a Slice of Demented Americana
(9/14/2014) - Close to three hours of crazy behavior, with doses of disgusting, despicable action mixed in, make for an extremely intense, but trying evening.


BWW Previews: Globe on Screen's TWELFTH NIGHT Opens in Los Angeles Cinemas, 9/22 Photos BWW Previews: Globe on Screen's TWELFTH NIGHT Opens in Los Angeles Cinemas, 9/22
(9/13/2014) - Lovers of Shakespeare are in for a real treat when Shakespeare's Globe Theatre brings its all-male Original Practices production of Twelfth Night to local cinemas beginning September 22. Starring award-winning actors Mark Rylance as Olivia and Stephen Fry as Malvolio, the film gives audiences an exclusive opportunity to see this unique performance from the Globe Theatre in London. It is also a chance to see the kind of production that would have been presented in Shakespeare's day, down to the style of the music, dance, costumes, and scenery.

BWW Reviews: Moonlight Amphitheatre, Vista Rolls Out Red Carpet for CATCH ME IF YOU CAN Photos BWW Reviews: Moonlight Amphitheatre, Vista Rolls Out Red Carpet for CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
(9/12/2014) - It used to be, in days gone by, that hit Broadway shows would be made into movies; now, it's the reverse. With a dearth of ideas for Broadway musicals, the trend lately has been to turn to the big screen and revamp a popular film for the stage, adding song and dance. Such was the case with 9 to 5 and later Legally Blonde engendering quite a bit of success. Those two had female stars at the core, so it's high time a male got some attention. Voila! Catch Me If You Can has a quirky real-life story about an anti-hero Frank Abagnale Jr. (Jacob Haren) who in the 60s was called the Johnny Appleseed of fraud. The outstanding creative team of book writer Terrence McNally and musical wizards Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman took an old idea and created an entertainingly fresh showcase around it. The resultant Catch Me If You Can which received several Tony Award nominations in 2012 - one win for Norbert Leo Butz as Best Featured Actor playing Agent Carl Hanratty - is now playing in its West Coast regional premiere in Vista at the Moonlight Amphitheatre with Josh Adamson essaying Hanratty.


BWW Reviews: Fine Tuned OKLAHOMA! at Welk Resort Escondido Photos BWW Reviews: Fine Tuned OKLAHOMA! at Welk Resort Escondido
(9/12/2014) - When Oklahoma! was first produced on Broadway in 1943 it became the first smash hit for newly formed collaborating team Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II and also the first real book musical, preceded only by Showboat. It was a breakthrough musical, which when given a first-class production, is still, some 71 years later, without question, one of the greatest American musicals ever written. 'The Farmer and the Cowman' truly represents the philosophy of what America is all about, a unity and pride that is unmistakably individual. Welk Resorts' newest production is wonderfully entertaining, retaining a lot of traditional elements. Director Dan Mojica jubilantly brings together a very talented cast now in Escondido through November 16.


BWW Reviews: EQUIVOCATION, It's all in the Details and Theatricum Gets Them All Right Photos BWW Reviews: EQUIVOCATION, It's all in the Details and Theatricum Gets Them All Right
(9/12/2014) - Throughout two thirds of Bill Cain's political thriller EQUIVOCATION, a confused Shagspeare (known to us otherwise as Shakespeare and played by Ted Barton) keeps asking questions and getting answers that don't make sense. Finally a circumspect Father Garnet (Franc Ross) tells him to look for the question beneath the question and suddenly the pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place.

(9/9/2014) - Does genius have to be accompanied by totally a-hole behavior? John Stark directs his uniformly strong cast in a slick, strong-handed pace, in which they vividly exhibit the demons alternately possessing and inspiring the playwright's writings.


BWW Reviews: Falcon Turns to Impro for a WESTERN UNSCRIPTED Photos BWW Reviews: Falcon Turns to Impro for a WESTERN UNSCRIPTED
(9/8/2014) - Impro Theatre's mission is to create a play from scratch in a particular style, right before the eyes of its audience. Their improvised plays include: The Twilight Zone, and the works of Shakespeare, Chekhov, Dickens, Tennessee Williams, even Sondheim - all unscripted. This time around it's The Western Unscripted, now onstage at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank through October 5.


BWW Reviews: Independent Film BILLY SHAKESPEARE Highlights the Writer's Dilemma Photos BWW Reviews: Independent Film BILLY SHAKESPEARE Highlights the Writer's Dilemma
(9/8/2014) - BILLY SHAKESPEARE is a spicy little independent film by Deborah Voorhees that imagines what might happen if William Shakespeare tried to make it as a writer in today's Hollywood rather than Elizabethan England. Quirky characters, compromising situations, and the kind of deadpan humor made famous in Waiting For Guffman collide with hilarious moments of camp to create a madcap world in which young Billy just can't get a break.

BWW Interview: Actor BLAKE BOYD Talks About Joanne Mosconi's New Play Photos BWW Interview: Actor BLAKE BOYD Talks About Joanne Mosconi's New Play
(9/5/2014) - Joanne Mosconi's new play You Love That I'm Not Your Wife is set to open at the Avery Schreiber Playhouse in NoHo September 12. Blake Boyd is one of the leading actors in the play. Tell me about the play from the actor's standpoint and about the character you play. I play Tony Ciccarelli, an extremely successful entrepreneur who is in love with the idea of being in love. Perhaps not attuned to the feelings of his previous conquests, Tony gets more than he can handle and (hopefully) a life changing lesson in the form of Marie. Tony's relationship with Marie epitomizes the old adage that 'characters get not what they want, but what they need.'


BWW Interview: Actress JACQUE LYNN COLTON Discusses BURIED CHILD Photos BWW Interview: Actress JACQUE LYNN COLTON Discusses BURIED CHILD
(9/5/2014) - By Steve Peterson How did you first get involved in theatre and acting? I first got involved with a small part in a community theatre in Medford, Oregon as a child and had the usual school plays and debate teams. I was fairly shy as a kid and my voice would rise when I was nervous, so I took a college course in the theatre department at the University of Washington to 'modulate' my voice and learn 'vocal placement;' one thing led to another till I was firmly ensconced as a drama major and began getting cast in great character roles.
