BWW Review: Singing the Praises of Orpheus' Production of SISTER ACT in Ottawa at the Meridian Theatres @ CentrepointeBWW Review: Singing the Praises of Orpheus' Production of SISTER ACT in Ottawa at the Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe
by Courtney Castelino - Mar 10, 2019

I was invited to the opening night performance of Orpheus Theatre's new production of Sister Act at the Meridian Theatre @ Centrepointe. Sister Act is based on the 1992 movie of the same name, starring Whoopi Goldberg as the singing nun. Another story about a singing nun, you ask? Well this isn't your average nun… The plotline is somewhat reminiscent of the award-winning 1959 film, Some Like it Hot, starring Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and Marilyn Monroe. In Sister Act, Deloris Van Cartier (Jerusha Lewis) is an aspiring singer auditioning at her boyfriend's cocktail bar in Philadelphia. After she witnesses a mob type hit, she goes on the lam and finds reluctant sanctuary at the struggling Queen of Angels convent with the residing Mother Superior (Mary Ellen Vice). Mother Superior insists that if she is to stay in the convent, she must cast aside her "sinful" ways and abide by the same rules as the other nuns. The only thing that saves Deloris from total despair is her opportunity to help guide the convent's atrocious choir, to whom she is introduced as Sister Mary Clarence. (more...)

Nashville Noir Rockers Indianola Announce Debut Album, Plus SXSW, US Tour DatesNashville Noir Rockers Indianola Announce Debut Album, Plus SXSW, US Tour Dates
by BWW News Desk - Mar 8, 2019

Longtime fixtures of the Nashville live music scene, Indianola are ready to hit the road and bring their brand of American Gothic troubadour rock'n'roll to the national stage. The band, led by Owen Beverly (Nicole Atkins, Oh Land) is announcing their debut full-length, Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye, with a visual glimpse into their dark inspiration. The Orbison-esque “Too Good To Be True” meets its unexpected match in chopped visuals from 1973 campy horror b-movie Messiah of Evil. Such is the vibe of Indianola and the rest of Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye - an homage to the nostalgic, swooning camp of mid-century southern-bred radio hits with a fast-paced, deliberate, electric 2019 update.
