by Ashley Corbaley - Dec 11, 2018

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.' It is with this line that begins Jane Austen's most beloved masterpiece, Pride and Prejudice. A tale of five sisters and their journey of finding love, Austen's novel sincerely and humorously immerses readers into the social expectations of 17th century England. MISS BENNET: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY is set in 1815, two years after the events of the novel takes place. The Bennet sisters gather for the holidays to reconnect and celebrate at Mr. and Mrs. Darcy's grand estate. However, this time it is the bookish middle sister, Mary, who takes center stage.

A DOLL'S HOUSE Opens At Classic Theatre! A DOLL'S HOUSE Opens At Classic Theatre!
by BWW News Desk - Oct 23, 2017

Set in 1950's America with a Mad Men flair, The Classic Theatre's production of A Doll's House written by Henrik Ibsen in 1879, is the modern tragedy that changed theatre forever. It opened the door to realism. So explosive was the message, that a marriage was not sacrosanct, that a man's authority in his home should not go unchallenged, and that the prime duty of anyone was to find out who he or she really is and to become that person, that the play shocked audiences then and still resonates with them today. Sometimes the perfectly presented family and home are not what they seem Sometimes finding your home means finding yourself first. (more...)

BWW Review: TexARTS Examines the Meaning of A FEW GOOD MEN in Lakeway, TX
by Amy Bradley - Oct 14, 2016

Currently playing in Lakeway, Texas, Aaron Sorkin's original work A FEW GOOD MEN has been brought to life, as part of at TexARTS Academy's Professional Series. The average person recognizes this title based on its Oscar acclaim as a Best Picture nominee, and infamous line referencing ones inability to handle the truth. But in fact, A FEW GOOD MEN has a more subtle beginning based on a conversation Sorkin had with his sister regarding her time in Cuba, at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Premiering in 1989, and then adapted for screen a few years later, this play highlights an unlikely scenario between young men defending their honor and country while taking a hazing ritual too far. This courtroom drama introduces the audience to the military mindset, through chants and marches, and the responsibility involved with following orders without question. While investigating what seems like a 'cut and dry' case, a high level conspiracy is uncovered with regards to two young marines being charged with murder. As the story unravels, the audience can piece together the timeline and key facts the lawyers are desperately searching for within the case. TexARTs presents this play with high brow sophistication, without alienating members who have not served in the military but might have caught an episode of Law & Order. (more...)
