BWW Review: Arts Center of Cannon County's GREASE is Fun, But Out of Step With The Times BWW Review: Arts Center of Cannon County's GREASE is Fun, But Out of Step With The Times
by Jeffrey Ellis on July 13, 2018 in Nashville

It's fun, perhaps even joyful, and audiences are clearly delighted to reward director Matthew Hayes Hunter's youthful cast with riotous applause at the appropriate moments, but do they really endorse the message of the timeworn Jacobs and Casey script? Heck, do they even think about it? (more...)

by BWW News Desk on July 11, 2018 in Nashville

Kassandra has been through many challenges in her life, including an unpredictable autoimmune condition and losing her dad to cancer. Playing the piano is very healing for her, and she especially enjoys performing in her church's choir. Kids Wish Network, a children's charity that grants wishes for kids with life threatening illnesses, created a wish that was perfectly in tune with her dreams... she'd be spending time with her favorite musicians The Piano Guys.

BWW Review: Adam Szymkowicz's MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD is Truly Legendary BWW Review: Adam Szymkowicz's MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD is Truly Legendary
by Jeffrey Ellis on July 05, 2018 in Nashville

The legend of Robin Hood is subject to personal interpretation and, given the times in which we now live, it only makes sense that playwright Adam Szymkowicz would devise his own treatment of the legend in ways both provocative and traditional. In Marian, Or The True Tale of Robin Hood, Szymkowicz posits that both Robin, the personification of the anti-hero, and his supposed love, Maid Marian are indeed the same person, devoted not only to taking from the aristocracy to provide for the peasantry, but also to foment ideas of class and gender equality at a time when such thought was considered heretical.

BWW Review: Keenan-Zelt's TRUTH/DARE Gives Four Young Actors A Chance to Shine BWW Review: Keenan-Zelt's TRUTH/DARE Gives Four Young Actors A Chance to Shine
by Jeffrey Ellis on July 03, 2018 in Nashville

Playwright Tori Keenan-Zelt's emergence as a force in contemporary theater seems assured with her newest play, Truth/Dare, an incisive, on-target treatment of the pitfalls of adolescence and the frailty of relationships during a time in which everything seems in a constant state of flux. Directed by recent Lipscomb University graduate Natalie Risk, who gives Truth/Dare an immersive feel with her basement rec room set that involves audiences in every moment during the convincingly nuanced one act that's brought to life by a quartet of young actors who play off one another with self-assured candor.

BWW Review: LOVE NEVER DIES Closes Out TPAC's 2017-18 Season BWW Review: LOVE NEVER DIES Closes Out TPAC's 2017-18 Season
by Jeffrey Ellis on June 20, 2018 in Nashville

We cannot help but wonder: Do peacock feathers foretell of something far more sinister and portentous than what we've seen already in both Love Never Dies and The Phantom of the Opera await our heroine in the moments to follow? We won't spoil the outcome for you, of course, but suffice it to say that those pesky peacock feathers continue to work their devilment in the intriguing production now onstage at Nashville's Tennessee Performing Arts Center through Sunday, June 24.

BWW Review: Murfreesboro's Best Ever? THE LITTLE MERMAID Stakes A Claim for the Title BWW Review: Murfreesboro's Best Ever? THE LITTLE MERMAID Stakes A Claim for the Title
by Jeffrey Ellis on June 20, 2018 in Nashville

There's absolutely no need to equivocate, make comparisons or to otherwise water down this particularly judgmental opinion: The Little Mermaid - the stage version of the Disney musical about a gamine sea creature who longs to become human which is now onstage at Murfreesboro's Center for the Arts through June 24 - is the best show we've ever seen among the many CFTA productions reviewed over the years. Congratulations to direct Mark David Williams, musical director Nate Paul, choreographer Brittany Griffin and costumer Lisa McLaurin for their remarkable achievements that, combined, lift this oft-produced title from the stage-bound to far loftier heights of theater excellence.

BWW Review: Noah Rice-led ANNIE Brings Spirit to The Keeton's Summer Show BWW Review: Noah Rice-led ANNIE Brings Spirit to The Keeton's Summer Show
by Jeffrey Ellis on June 19, 2018 in Nashville

Annie, the Broadway musical by Charles Strouse, Martin Charnin and Thomas Meehan, is something of a community theater warhorse - a show that is sure to bring in throngs of theater-goers despite the oftentimes scornful dismay of the theaterati - along the same lines as Steel Magnolias, Grease and, well, you catch my drift. There's nothing epoch-shattering, paradigm-shifting or cutting edge about Annie (or any of the other shows of its ilk), but in a Nashville theater season during which we've seen laudable revivals of those other two shows, it only seems logical that a new production of Annie could be equally as entertaining and a welcome diversion.

BWW Review: Radical Arts' BARE Features Strong Performances from Rising Actors BWW Review: Radical Arts' BARE Features Strong Performances from Rising Actors
by Jeffrey Ellis on June 14, 2018 in Nashville

Without a doubt, an individual's teenage years can be fraught with tension and riddled with despair and even when that is leavened by the joy of self-discovery and the constant gaining of knowledge that accompanies adolescence, there's a steep learning curve that some are unable to embrace gracefully. All of that is apparent in bare, a pop opera, the almost completely sung-through "rock musical" currently onstage at Nashville's Music Valley Event Center in a production from director Seth Limbaugh's Radical Arts.
