SKELETON CREW Opens at TheatreSquared 10/10SKELETON CREW Opens at TheatreSquared 10/10
by BWW News Desk - Oct 1, 2018

The blistering comic drama Skeleton Crew begins performances on October 10 at TheatreSquared, bringing to Northwest Arkansas a new work by one of America's most acclaimed contemporary playwrights. Dominique Morisseau, a Steinberg Playwright Award-winner and two-time NAACP Image Award honoree, is "one of the rising talents in American drama" (NYTimes) and "a rising star" (L.A. Times), described by critics as a modern-day successor to 20th-century giants Arthur Miller, Clifford Odets, and August Wilson. Skeleton Crew is set in Detroit's last exporting auto plant, where sparks fly on the production line-and in the breakroom. As rumors surface about a closing date, new power dynamics emerge. When the line between blue collar and white collar blurs, how far over are they willing to step?  Performances are scheduled October 10-November 4, and tickets are on sale now from $17-$48 at (479) 443-5600 or theatre2.org.

BWW Review: THE WHO'S TOMMY Inspiring Story of Hope and HealingBWW Review: THE WHO'S TOMMY Inspiring Story of Hope and Healing
by Frank Benge - Sep 20, 2018

THE WHO'S TOMMY is a rock musical with music and lyrics by Pete Townshend and book by Townshend and Des McAnuff, based on The Who's 1969 rock opera Tommy. There are several plot differences between the album, the film, and the stage production, though the general storyline is largely the same. The biggest difference in the story is the new finale, which was rewritten in 1993. Originally, Tommy instructs his followers to become deaf, dumb, and blind themselves in order to achieve enlightenment. In the 1993 rewrite, Tommy instructs them to not emulate him, but to live their own lives. In both versions, the crowd rejects both him and his message. Inspiration for the stage show came from the 1969 concept album, Tommy by The Who. It was the first album ever billed as a rock opera. The album has sold over 20 million copies worldwide and, before becoming a stage musical, it was also the basis for an all star recording that paved the way for the 1975 film of the same name. It first premiered on Broadway in 1993. Acclaimed director, Des McAnuff, and Pete Townshend sculpted the concept album into a stage show that won five Tony Awards including Best Original Score.
