Favorite Stories:

  • BWW Interviews: GENEVA CARR - Geneva's background is so different from other performers. She was a Wall Street shark for quite some time before deciding that she was meant to act. She started late, but you would think she was acting her entire life.
  • An Iliad at Long Wharf Theatre - I'm not a fan of the original book, but this production blew me away, especially with Rachel Christopher's narration of a story that has contemporary parallels. She has incredible stage presence and even studied ancient Greek long before the show. She is also a student of Taekwando, so she can kicka** on and off the stage.
  • BWW Interview: Christine Scarfuto in New Haven - I like to interview the unsung heroes of theater. Christine is a dramaturg. I never knew there was such a job. Listening to a dramaturg talk about a play is truly enlightening because you learn so much about the background of the playwright and the times in which the play was written.
  • BWW Interview: Ali Stroker On AN EVENING WITH ALI STROKER at Westport Country Playhouse - Ali overcame a devasting accident that left her paralyzed when she was a toddler. That didn't stop her from pursuing her dreams. She broke a glass ceiling for people with disabilities. Big mouth that I am, I told her that she should do Shakespeare and mentioned that I saw Darius de Hass in Twelfth Night in wheelchair after he injured his Achilles tendon. She seemed hesitant, but then she performed in Shakespeare in The Park. I was delighted when I saw her on Only Murders in the Building.
  • Previews: SOMETHING ROTTEN! at Westhill High School - I knew Something Rotten! was not going to be your average high school show because it was produced by Stamford All-Schools Musicals. The directors, choreographers, costume designers, and set designers are all professionals and the student talent is incredible. All of them have had some stage experience and some have pursued professional careers. I knew this production would be good, but when I saw it, I was flabbergasted. I'd seen the show before at a community theater, but it was forgettable. This production was absolutely amazing.

Outside New York City, it is Connecticut that has almost an embarrassment of riches when it comes to theater. Forty years ago, a group of actors, writers and directors, including Keir Dullea and his late wife Susie Fuller, founded Theatre Artists Workshop as a place where they could experiment and cultivate new works, hone their skills, and work with their peers in a place that is safe from the glare of the public spotlight.
