OTHELLO: A WOMAN'S STORY Comes to The Drama Factory
by BWW News Desk - Jun 4, 2018

Love, miscommunication, jealously and betrayal. If you are looking for these things in a play you've come to the right production. Othello is one of those plays where Shakespeare perfectly captures the human condition in a story that is still as relevant today as when it was first performed. Although the language seems foreign, the modern take on this classic drama is set in a world we all understand, but with one big twist. Everyone in the cast is female and all the characters are portrayed female. This gives the actresses the chance to explore characters which they never may have been able to portray and the chance to tell a well known story in a brand new way. You won't know what to expect unless you come watch. All and all this is not your usual Shakespeare experience. (more...)

Time Zone Theatre Presents The World Premiere Of The Opera FAUST, ALBERTA By Simone Spagnolo
by BWW News Desk - Jun 11, 2018

The operatic spectacle Faust, Alberta explores the tragic story of Doctor Faustus and his fatal deal with Mephistopheles from a contemporary angle. A Nameless Man finds himself in a remote cabin surrounded by frozen snowfields. He doesn't know who he is nor where he is from, only that something is after him - an unstoppable machine that hunts those who fell from grace. In nine scenes, he tries to collect his memory. Triggered by snippets from his past, he slowly starts to put the pieces together. The "music-theatre metaphysical western", as composer Simone Spagnolo and librettist Giordano Trischitta describe their new work, is scored as a mono-opera for one singer and four musicians, and inspired by Wim Wenders. It asks whether we can ever escape from our past, and how to find redemption. (more...)
