by E.H. Reiter - Jun 14, 2022

What did our critic think of THE TAMING OF THE SHREW at The Old Globe? Starring Deborah Ann Woll and James Udom as the headstrong pair Petruchio and Katherine, a lovely set, and a sense of playful fun, the show is successfully turned into a fun romantic comedy, though never fully overcomes the questionable behavior built into the script. Paying at The Old Globe under the stars in the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre through July 10th

BWW TV Exclusive: CUTTING-EDGE COMPOSERS CORNER- Spotlight on Drew Fornarola & Scott Elmgreen's TIANANMEN
by BroadwayWorld TV - Dec 12, 2014

This week's spotlight is on composer/lyricist Drew Fornarola and bookwriter Scott Elmgreen. TIANANMEN is an original rock musical that follows the events of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests in Beijing, focusing on the stories of three student demonstrators and the Communist leaders they dare to challenge. The students communicate through music while government leaders communicate through spoken dialogue, and in this way the show uses musical theatre to starkly and viscerally portray the generational and cultural divides that come between both sides. Selections from Tiananmen premiered in a March 2014 concert at 54 Below starring Telly Leung, Ruthie Ann Miles, and Karl Josef Co, and the show continues to be developed under the artistic guidance of director Stafford Arima and with academic support from the Harvard University Department of East Asian Languages and Civilizations.
