BWW Review: STAGE KISS is a Delightful Summer Romp at SHAW FESTIVAL BWW Review: STAGE KISS is a Delightful Summer Romp at SHAW FESTIVAL
by Michael Rabice on June 21, 2018 in Buffalo

When the stage directions in a script indicate 'to kiss' any good actor knows it will be 'stage kiss.' That is, kind of awkward at first attempt in the rehearsal hall, but hopefully with practice becomes convincing enough to the audience without the actors actually becoming emotionally involved with each other during the run of the play. That's alot of information to digest for an action that merely calls for two people playing their lips on each other's . Briefly stated, that is the underlying premise in the Shaw Festival's delightful romp, STAGE KISS playing at the Royal George Theatre. (more...)

by Mark C. Lloyd on June 14, 2018 in Buffalo

KH: The first time I performed was my Nana and Boppa's basement in Skaneatales, NY, where my sister and I would reenact the entirety of Annie to the vinyl record. I was probably 5.

Though I can't confirm this, I'm sure the critics raved about me every time. (more...)

BWW Review: An Elegant GRAND HOTEL at SHAW FESTIVAL BWW Review: An Elegant GRAND HOTEL at SHAW FESTIVAL
by Michael Rabice on June 11, 2018 in Buffalo

'People come, people go,' 'some have, some have not.' Simple lyrics that can expose a myriad of stories and wounds. Just what one would expect in a busy hotel. No one is ever quite sure what happens behind the closed doors of a grand hotel, but outward appearances are often just that, appearances that don't always belie the truth. Given those opportunities for musical intrigue, The Shaw Festival is producing an elegant production of GRAND HOTEL at their Festival Theatre for their 2018 Season. (more...)
