BWW Review: COMPANY at Just Off Broadway is a Fun, Funny and Fast-Paced Show with Heart BWW Review: COMPANY at Just Off Broadway is a Fun, Funny and Fast-Paced Show with Heart
by Kristen Price on October 18, 2017 in Baltimore

For a majority of my adult life I've assumed Stephen Sondheim's COMPANY was a show about the backstage workings of a company of actors a bit like NOISES OFF. It was only recently I learned that the show's title actually refers to an entirely different meaning of the word company. Thanks to the cast and crew of Just Off Broadway's fabulous production for clearing that up for me! While on the subject of confessions, I must also share that like the director Jason Crawford Samios-Uy mentioned in his note in the program, I've also never been a huge fan of Sondheim. I think he's equal parts creative genius and musical mastermind, however his shows have never appealed to me the way others have. (more...)

Evening Celebrating THE AMERICAN SONGBOOK BWW Review: Annapolis Shakespeare Company Opens Their New Cabaret Space With An Evening Celebrating THE AMERICAN SONGBOOK
by Kristen Price on October 16, 2017 in Baltimore

The cabaret show has been a staple in the entertainment industry for some time. Singers and performers alike relish the opportunity to tell stories in a different way than they're used to, while performing songs they've never had the opportunity to sing. These evenings are more intimate and audiences are given the chance to feel closer and more in tune with the performers than they would be in a theater or larger concert venue. And while there are music clubs and small venues in Maryland, there aren't many theaters providing this type of intimate entertainment on a regular basis. (more...)
