Review - BASH'd: A Gay Rap Opera: Love Changes Everything
by Kristin Salaky - Jun 24, 2008

After earning high accolades from its appearances in both New York and Toronto's Fringe Festivals and winning a Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) award for 'fair, accurate and inclusive representation of people and events in the media as a means of eliminating homophobia and discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation,' the Canadian-created BASH'd: A Gay Rap Opera has moved to the Zipper Factory Theatre for an Off-Broadway run. And while this imaginative and theatrically invigorating celebration of gay marital rights and condemnation of random acts of hatred certainly has its heart in the right place, the awkward sympathy of the story's ending prevents me from giving the show a fully enthusiastic recommendation. I'll try and tiptoe my way through that part later without revealing too much, but first let me tell you about the 90% of the show that comes off extremely well. (more...)

MADE ME NUCLEAR Will Extend For An Additional Eight Weeks
by BWW News Desk - Jan 21, 2009

The critically acclaimed Made Me Nuclear, now in its fifth month, is extending for an additional eight weeks.
