LE GRAND VOYAGE to Premiere In NYC Photo LE GRAND VOYAGE to Premiere In NYC
by BWW News Desk - Feb 19, 2020

Premiering at the end of February, Le Grand Voyage is a joint work of a New York based team of actors gathered to explore and develop a show in the genre of theatrical clown. This new experimental piece tells the story of a family that goes in search of adventures in a foreign country. What awaits them is predictably strange and at the same time, surprisingly familiar. In the language of theatrical clown, actors tell the story of the hustles and struggles we go through when faced with the new and the unknown.

BWW Review: Swipe Right--ELECTRONIC CITY by New Stage Theatre Company is a Match Photo BWW Review: Swipe Right--ELECTRONIC CITY by New Stage Theatre Company is a Match
by Derek McCracken - Apr 27, 2019

In a tale as old as FaceTime, Electronic City pulses with potential as a dynamic dystopian mash-up where LED, KLM, EDM and 'news' of J-Lo's CVS H20 all vie for our short attention spans. Art imitates and pixelates life, and a co-dependency on little screens leads to big problems for Joy (Jeanne Laurent Smith) and Tom (Brandon Lee Olson), a disconnected but determined couple whose relationship status can best be described as 'buffering.'

BWW Review: The Icy Touch of Blessed Unrest's THE SNOW QUEEN Photo BWW Review: The Icy Touch of Blessed Unrest's THE SNOW QUEEN
by Kristen Morale - Jan 12, 2018

The Snow Queen is based on the story by Hans Christian Anderson and is written by Matt Opatrny. Developed as part of New Victory Labworks at the New Victory Theater in New York, and inspired by the ideas of an ambitious fourth grade class at P.S. 3, this show is now in performances at the New Ohio Theatre under the direction of Jessica Burr. A beautiful story of love, The Snow Queen is the innocence of a child meshed with the trials of adulthood: lives that are affected by the inexplicable, obstacles that need a determined heart to overcome, and a love made stronger by the knowledge that success is somehow knowingly right around the corner. It is a story that teaches its audience that a child's love for her best friend is nothing short of spectacular, and our main character Gerda's pursuit of her best friend after he has been abducted by the Snow Queen gives her the fortitude we all wish to have - the ability to believe in the impossible.
