BWW First Person: What A Difference A Transfer Can Make; Looking at the Differences in Shows Between London and New YorkBWW First Person: What A Difference A Transfer Can Make; Looking at the Differences in Shows Between London and New York
by Kerry Breen - Aug 13, 2017

Ever wonder how your favorite show looks on the other side of the Atlantic? Sometimes a show is exactly the same - and sometimes, the changes can make it nearly unrecognizable.

by Jeffrey Ellis - Jul 22, 2017

Despite its provocative title and abundant profanity (or maybe even because of it), Stephen Adly Guirgis' The Motherf**ker With the Hat is actually filled with a lot of humanity and heart, enough that you'll find it difficult to shake off the story and its characters long after the final scene has played out. And thanks to director Kurt Jarvis' production for Destiny Theatre Experience's tenth anniversary, the Nashville debut will likely be talked about and recounted for months to come - which seems the perfect testament to the impact of Shawn Whitsell's company on Music City's vibrant arts and theater company.
