BWW Blog: Samantha Tirrell - Backbeard's Birthday FightBWW Blog: Samantha Tirrell - Backbeard's Birthday Fight
by Guest Blogger: Samantha Tirrell - April 27, 2016

According to page 136, paragraph four, subsection C of the Pirate Handbook, on a pirate's "older-than-ninth birthday," his trusty crew must grant him a fight! That is exactly what happened this week at the Theatre Institute at Sage in our staging of Backbeard's own birthday fight, an exciting 10-pirate quarrel with the hairiest pirate who ever lived at the center of it all.  (more...)
BWW Review: DEAD MAN WALKING Shines Light into the Darkness in Georgetown, TXBWW Review: DEAD MAN WALKING Shines Light into the Darkness in Georgetown, TX
by Amy Bradley - April 27, 2016

The Sarofim School of Fine Arts Department of Theatre presents DEAD MAN WALKING at the creative theatre in the round stage known as Jesse H. and Mary Gibbs Jones Theater. Located in the heart of Georgetown, Texas and more specifically, Southwestern University, director Kathleen Juhl gathers students to tell a tale of a very unlikable young man watching the clock of his life run out. Set in 1970's Louisiana, the audience is transported through the stories of intolerance rather than scenery. Opening with a bare stage, some chairs, and a simple platform, the play begins with Sister Helen Prejean (played my Ally Oliphint) curious and nonjudgemental about her questionable surroundings in "the projects". Soon, she is asked by a local priest to visit a man on death row, and with some hesitation, she goes against the advice of her peers and ventures to the prison. With the bars and jail represented through creative cross lighting and distance, Matthew Poncelet (played by Dillon Betros) awaits, like a lion waiting for prey. The young man facing the last week of his life comes alive in his berating and tempting of Sister Prejean to abandon him through his brutish and ignorant dialogue. This stands in contrast with Sister Prejean's attempts to  humanize a convicted murderer and rapist, as she is on a mission of religious guidance and tolerance, and not wanting to pass judgement.

by Guest Blogger: Dearna Doglione - April 26, 2016

As I take a seat at the back of the theatre, the cast of Through My Father's Eyes start practicing their songs. Peseta conducts with a flavour and style ingrained within him, powerfully finding the light and shade, making every word of the beautiful language understandable to those who can't speak it. When they make it to the peak, there is such strength in their passion for the song that it almost brings me to tears. But the true power is within the quiet moments; the palpable fragility, that makes you listen so closely and feel so deeply. (more...)
BWW Blog: Samantha Tirrell - The Music of BACKBEARDBWW Blog: Samantha Tirrell - The Music of BACKBEARD
by Guest Blogger: Samantha Tirrell - April 25, 2016

We've just finished our first week of music rehearsals for Backbeard at the Theatre Institute at Sage! Because Backbeard has been workshopped with our department a couple of times now, most of the cast is already very familiar with the music, so the trajectory of our music rehearsals was naturally a bit different than it would have been if we were rehearsing a licensed show. The familiarity that the cast has with the material already allows for the polishing of the music earlier in the rehearsal process than is standard, and this musical stability will assist with the fluidity of rehearsal once staging begins.  (more...)

AMERICAN IDIOT at Birmingham-Southern College is edgy, gritty and all that you want it to be. BSC took a risk doing a current and potentially controversial show and for students of art, a risk like that is almost always worth it. (more...)
BWW Review: CHICAGO Sensualizes MurderBWW Review: CHICAGO Sensualizes Murder
by Katherine Waddell - April 22, 2016

When I first heard that a Catholic college, Saint Mary's College to be exact, was putting on the musical Chicago, I was skeptical. Knowing that Chicago is quite the risque musical with all types of salacious subject matter, I wasn't quite sure how they were going to pull it off. Well, let me be blunt, Saint Mary's did not look very Catholic this past Saturday night when I saw the second showing of the musical. (more...)

The arrival of warm weather in the Northeast means for most college students that the semester is winding down and that summer break is drawing nearer; however, for theatre majors at Russell Sage College, the warm weather is an exciting indicator for us that our summer production is just around the corner! The summer show is the most unique slot in the Theatre Institute at Sage's season, as actors and technicians who work on the summer show stay on campus up to a month and a half after the semester ends to put up what is always a fun and exhilarating children's theatre piece without the additional responsibility of academic work-a rare and valuable opportunity for a college theatre student.

Growing up in New Zealand, many hurdles challenge genuine and talented purveyors of the arts achieving success both nationally and overseas. These can include lack of resources or funding, sparse education institutions, or the term I have personally heard more than once: 'This is New Zealand, not bloody America!' If one finally breaks past these barriers and tries to make their dreams reality, there is suddenly the greatest hurdle in their path: Tall Poppy Syndrome. (more...)

by Jerri Shafer - April 13, 2016

Fiddler on the Roof is a musical with music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and book by Joseph Stein, set in the Pale of Settlement of Imperial Russia in 1905. It is based on Tevye and his Daughters (or Tevye the Dairyman) and other tales by Sholem Aleichem. The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters, and his attempts to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences encroach upon the family's lives. He must cope both with the strong-willed actions of his three older daughters, who wish to marry for love - each one's choice of a husband moves further away from the customs of his faith - and with the edict of the Tsar that evicts the Jews from their village.

A chill in the air in Ohio State's Mershon Auditorium Friday evening was not entirely due to the unseasonable snowflakes that fell from the sky outside. Rather, a hair-raising performance of "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" by the Ohio State University Opera and Lyric Theatre greatly contributed to the spooky atmosphere, sending shivers up the spines of those who dared to delve into the world of this dark musical thriller.
