BWW Blog: Jessica Walker - Community Outreach and High School Theatre
by Guest Blogger: Jessica Walker - May 17, 2016

In a tight-nit community like that which I am from, the members of the town are all very close. Adults and children alike collaborate during sporting events, stream clean-ups, and fun-runs. This dynamic within the community also means that the members of the town play an important role in our school's drama department. Schools with less money in the theatre budget are often prone to do-it-yourself projects and community outreach, telling a story with minimal financial input. Coming from a small, rural community, myself and my fellow actors are accustomed to assisting in most if not all aspects of the high school drama program. However, we would not be able to create our productions without the help of friends and family. Through experience, I have learned that making a production is often so deeply rooted in the community you have supporting you. 

Pre-Summer Performance of W. B. Yeats Plays At Coney Island and The Rockaways This Weekend
by Louisa Brady - May 7, 2016

This weekend's performances of 'On Baile's Strand,' W.B. Yeats' 1903 play is about the mythological Irish warrior hero Cuchulainn, who unknowingly kills his son in the service of Conchobhar, King of Ulster. The performances are part of CualaNYC, an ongoing two-month festival of Irish culture that commemorates the centenary of the six-day 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin, a pivotal moment in modern Irish history that led to Ireland's independence, and highlights the role of New Yorkers in the rebellion. 

BWW Review: THE YEATS PROJECT at IRISH CLASSICAL THEATRE
by Michael Rabice - Apr 22, 2016

Three of Buffalo's esteemed arts organizations have teamed together to present what is being called THE YEATS PROJECT: TWO PLAYS BY W.B. YEATS. This non-traditional event may best be described as a piece of performance art incorporating the talents of the Irish Classical Theatre, Lehrer Dance and Torn Space Theatre. The result, while occasionally beautiful to watch, was often perplexing in it's dramatic propulsion of Yeats' two stories.

Bland's THE EASTER RISING to Play Jermyn Street Theatre
by Tyler Peterson - Mar 21, 2016

Easter Monday - a group of Irish nationalists stage a rebellion against the ruling British government in Ireland in an attempt to establish an Irish Republic. Some 1,600 rebels seize prominent buildings in Dublin and clash with British troops on the streets of the capital. Within a week, the insurrection is suppressed and more than 2,000 people are dead or injured. The leaders of the rebellion are executed. A few years later an Irish Free State is established. Yet, over the following century the events of that week and their immediate aftermath have cast a long shadow over Ireland and continue to shape Anglo-Irish relations today.
