by BWW News Desk on June 18, 2018 in Long Island

In keeping with their mission of raising visibility for women's issues, The Neo-Political Cowgirls (NPC) dance theatre company is proud to present their second annual Andromeda's Sisters event on Thursday, June 28th at East Hampton's Guild Hall.

BWW Review: ON THE TOWN at The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre BWW Review: ON THE TOWN at The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre
by Jaime Zahl on June 07, 2018 in Long Island

What would you do if you met someone who had never seen a musical before? They have no concept of what goes into it - the dance breaks, the big ensemble numbers, the balance of humor and pathos. The Noel S. Ruiz Theatre's production 'On the Town' would be the perfect production to display what it means to be a musical. Although it teeters on the cliche at times, the production value and the performances make up for the sometimes flawed piece. (more...)

BWW Review: Theater Three's production of Kander and Ebb's CURTAINS certainly is “A Tough Act to Follow” BWW Review: Theater Three's production of Kander and Ebb's CURTAINS certainly is “A Tough Act to Follow”
by Nicholas Pontolillo on June 02, 2018 in Long Island

Port Jefferson's Theater Three production of the musicial murder mystery romp Curtains is brilliant; it is a clever mash up of Columbo meets Kiss Me, Kate. Curtains is a wonderful show that reveals how a show's ensemble is not just its cast, but also its creative team. It emphasizes the importance of each and every talent involved with putting on a Broadway show. From the stage manager to the conductor; from the music team to the director. Theater Three's production successfully emits this theme. (more...)
