by BWW News Desk - Jan 15, 2018

If you really love Greek mythology, the old Divas of WWE or trashing other womxn then this is probably not the play for you. But if you love the Kardashians, candid CNN interviews, gold (everywhere), spelling womxn with an x and smashing the patriarchy one rape-culture-drenched mythological origin story at a time then this might just be your cup of tea.

by BWW News Desk - Jan 15, 2018

Albertze and Makapan were motivated to create this piece after both of them were involved in a racist incident in Stellenbosch earlier this year. In the viral video we see Makapan with a bloodied nose, declare that he had just been punched in the face by a young white male. Said male had used a racial slur against Makapan and his friends and when confronted about it, became enraged. Despite not provoking this individual, Makapan still received some backlash on social media, prompting him and Albertze to question the validity of one's voice in these instances Thus began their allegory of feeling breathless. Voiceless. 'Waar is my asem?' The production explores various occasions in which the writers felt they didn't have a voice and tell their individual stories with the help of a few balloons. The play is full of dark humour, addressing social injustices and highlighting the importance of expressing yourself no matter how impossible it may feel. This mainly Afrikaans production by Du Toit Albertze and Terence Makapan mixes white Afrikaner culture with coloured Afrikaner culture. (more...)

by Stage Tube - Dec 12, 2017

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley breaks new ground in 2017 by adding a second holiday show to its season, The Santaland Diaries at the intimate 180-seat Lohman Theatre in Los Altos Hills. Written by David Sedaris, this rollicking one-man cure for an overdose of holiday hype will have a limited three-week run. Sedaris' international career as a memoirist took off when he recounted his short tenure at Macy's as Crumpet the Elf in an essay which he read on NPR's 'Morning Edition' in 1992. Adapted by Joe Mantello, this unique yuletide hit shares the experience of an ill-equipped elf forced to confront child meltdowns, overbearing parents, and complacent Santas. Directed by Jeffrey Lo and starring Max Tachis as David/Crumpet, The Santaland Diaries will be presented December 5 - 23, 2017 (opening nights: December 7-8) at Lohman Theatre, 12345 S. El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills. For tickets ($20-$45) and more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (650) 463-1960. (more...)

BWW Review: CHASING MEM'RIES Shows Us the Path to a Happier LifeBWW Review: CHASING MEM'RIES Shows Us the Path to a Happier Life
by Don Grigware - Nov 18, 2017

lyrics by Alan & Marilyn Bergman/music by: Bill Cantos & Mari Falcone, Dave Grusin, Marvin Hamlisch, Michel Legrand and Johnny Mandel/Geffen Playhouse/Gil Cates Theater/through December 17 When I first heard about the premise of Chasing Mem'ries, I thought, 'Oh no, a musical about death and grieving...and with a ghost on tap...spare us!' Well, sometimes first thoughts are terribly wrong. As it turns out Josh Ravetch's world premiere is a complete joy to watch. Ravetch skillfully directs, allowing the brilliant Tyne Daly plenty of space to pursue her journey as Victoria. Also starring Robert Forster as Franklin and Scott Kradolfer as their son Mason, this piece not only tugs at your heartstrings but will make you cherish every moment of living, through December 17 at the Gil Cates Theater of the Geffen Playhouse. Subtitled A Different Kind of Musical, ...Mem'ries is more a play with music in which the songs, some old, some new, generate the memories that Victoria experiences in the attic of her Connecticut home on the day of Franklin's memorial. With lyrics by the sensational Alan and Marilyn Bergman, it's hard to go wr (more...)
