Ana Gasteyer to Bring I'M HIP to Schimmel Center at Pace University
by BWW News Desk - Feb 22, 2016

From songs like One Mint Julep and Proper Cup of Coffee to a surprisingly smooth rendition of Carrie Underwood's Before He Cheats, Gasteyer's saucy selections tell stories with humor, heartbreak…and just a little splash of soda. Her vibe recalls that of a time when enter- tainers truly entertained, an era when a broad could bring home the bacon, swing a set of sultry standards and still be a gracious hostess. Ana's heroes are those fun-loving dames who downed a cocktail, donned a dress and fronted a band of dapper gents in sharp suits wielding shiny horns-think Barbara Stanwyck in Ball of Fire as she captures Gary Cooper's heart. And then breaks it.

BWW Review: THE HATEFUL EIGHT is Violent, Captivating, Quintessential Tarantino
by Matt Tamanini - Dec 21, 2015

While the setting, style, and time period of Quentin Tarantino movies have changed throughout the years, there are three things that have remained consistent; ensembles of gleefully flawed characters; depraved, but often gorgeously bloody violence; and lots and lots of profanity. While the theatre is no stranger to violence or profanity, it is his legendary ability to create compelling, but bizarre characters that has led me to say in print and on podcasts that if the 52-year-old writer and director had been born a few decades earlier, Tarantino could have been one of America's greatest playwrights, alongside Williams, O'Neill, Miller, Stoppard, and Mamet.
