ELIXIR OF LOVE Brings 80's Nostalgia to Center Stage OperaELIXIR OF LOVE Brings 80's Nostalgia to Center Stage Opera
by BWW News Desk - Jan 17, 2018

Center Stage Opera presents an original, modern production of Donizetti's classic comic opera, The Elixir Of Love. Inspired by film director John Hughes' teen comedies of the '80s, Director Dylan F. Thomas has set the opera on a high school campus in The Valley, circa 1985. The heroine is now the head cheerleader, her suitors are the football team captain and the nerdy team mascot, etc., and the supertitle translations of the Italian libretto are rendered in authentic '80s 'Val-Speak', all to hilarious effect, while remaining faithful to the original score and story line.

by BWW News Desk - Jan 3, 2018

WBT will open its 2018 theatre season with the hit Broadway musical A Chorus Line. This mega-hit captures the very soul of musical theater, and is one of the longest-running Broadway musicals ever. This beloved and iconic musical by James Kirkwood & Nicholas Dante with a brilliant and show-stopping score by Marvin Hamlisch & Lyrics by Edward Kleban, is a celebration of those unsung heroes of the Musical Theatre, the chorus dancers, valiant, over- dedicated, underpaid and highly trained troopers who back up the star and often make them look more talented. The characters portrayed in A Chorus Line are based upon the real life experiences of Broadway dancers. (more...)

BWW Review: Rob Nash's HOLY CROSS SUCKS Both Hilarious and HeartwarmingBWW Review: Rob Nash's HOLY CROSS SUCKS Both Hilarious and Heartwarming
by Frank Benge - Dec 20, 2017

HOLY CROSS SUCKS! is Rob Nash's solo show that is a combination of four earlier separate plays: Freshman Year Sucks!, Sophomore Slump, Junior Blues and Senioritis. All of these earlier plays made their premiere at The Vortex between 1997 and 2000. HOLY CROSS SUCKS! played Off-Broadway in New York in 2005 where it was the recipient of a top ten award from Time Out New York magazine. Based on Nash's time at a Jesuit high school in Texas, HOLY CROSS SUCKS! is a hilarious and heartwarming look back at the 1980's. By combining the four earlier plays into one work, Nash has created a touchingly funny coming of age story of three friends that is rich in detail and made even more memorable by Nash's lightning fast character changes. Nash plays a grand total of 29 characters in the course of two hours making each character distinctly different all the way down to body language in a performance that is frankly remarkable.

BWW Review: Rousing Vocals & Hilarity Rule UMPO HOME ALONEBWW Review: Rousing Vocals & Hilarity Rule UMPO HOME ALONE
by Gil Kaan - Dec 3, 2017

Kate Pazakis and her talented creative team once again incorporate their 'secret sauce' in concocting a most delicious holiday treat for Rockwell revelers - THE UNAUTHORIZED MUSICAL PARODY OF HOME ALONE. The 1990 John Hughes classic Home Alone receives Pazakis' UMPO treatment, resulting in a most side-splitting production with their clever choice of pop songs, re-worded to 'fit' the Home Alone narrative, and boosted by the always witty (and subtly topical) dialogue of Ray Wetmore and Pazakis.
