BWW Recap: There's 'No More Pretending' on WESTWORLD
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 31, 2016

“Contrapasso,” the title of Episode 5 of WESTWORLD refers to the concept in Dante's Inferno that every sinner should see an equally fitting punishment for their crime as the one they had committed. As guests continually exercise their id and indulge in depravity and the hosts who are victims of said indulgence start gaining consciousness and pushing back, they may find their own ring of hell at the end of their vacation. Everyone this week faces their demons and sees justice, in whatever form that maybe. For the more unsavory workers and guests of Westworld and their instinctually detached approach to the hosts from a more voyeuristic perspective, they will find an equally fitting end to their equally horrifying “sins”. For those with purer intentions and good hearts, they will battle against the sin exercising all around them and tempting them in to struggle in the search for a haven. “Contrapasso” is all about ones actions and the due retribution they will face, allowing the characters to reach a beautiful climax as the world and the balance starts shifting for them, be it in the positive or negative light.

BWW Review: KINKY BOOTS - Fun Frivolity and Frisky Freedom
by Tim Carney - Oct 24, 2016

In June 2013 two musicals went head to head in the best musical category at the Tony Awards. One would win but both would leave their mark in the musical theatre industry as being truly special shows. Kinky Boots and Matilda are currently playing a block away from each other in Melbourne and moving audiences in their own unique way. Last night it was Kinky Boots' turn, in an opening night extravaganza, which not only lived up to its Tony Award winning billing but smashed it out of the ballpark. There is nothing particularly unique about the shows storyline, based on the 2005 film, but it has every successful ingredient of major Broadway successes before it and then throws in a truckload of glitter and fun to leave audiences feeling euphoric. Last nights opening night audience started leaping to their feet early on in the show after Land of Lola and remained there at the shows conclusion. It what was the most deserved standing ovation.

by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Nov 9, 2016

BWW Recap: Everything Must Be Burned Clean on WESTWORLD
by Jessica Naftaly - Nov 28, 2016

WESTWORLD's penultimate episode entitled 'The Well-Tempered Clavier' just aired last night and as we head into the finale of the first season, the show proves it's not holding back any of its punches. The show has certainly taken on a bigger life in the online community with fan theorizing and discussion and WESTWORLD does what most shows should follow suit in revealing answers to questions the fans are asking and are already forming their own answers to. By doing so, they avoid the probable let down in the future that comes with an anticlimactic reveal of something the consumers have been building up in their heads for so long in such a grandiose way that the final product could never hold a candle to what they were imagining it to be. They also prove that the show overall, as a narrative and a piece of thematic storytelling, isn't about the twists, despite their existence in the narrative. They exist, but as the theories prove by being completely true, the information was all there from the beginning and the questions about consciousness, autonomy, and humanity are the real grounding force of the epic scale drama that is WESTWORLD.

'Paint 'n Spurs: The Men Who Founded the Cowboy Artists of America' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jan 27, 2017

Four men walked into a bar and over booze, beer and laughs they created a new art organization that represented America's historical heritage. They called this creation The Cowboy Artists of America. The year was 1965; the place was the Oak Creek Tavern in Sedona, Arizona. Fred Harman couldn't attend the Oak Creek Tavern meeting, but he was there at the organizational meeting in Charlie Dye's studio, three months later, with the other four founders. This is when the nitty-gritty of bylaws and rules were established. The creation of this organization was not a whimsical act, nor was it a delusionary one. These Men were fine artists and perfected their skill over many years. What made them unique is that they were also cowboys. Men who had worked the range, branded cattle and rode the long trail. Now, over fifty years later, these cowboy artists, or artist cowboys, are together again in an informative and delightful biography of the founders of the Cowboy Artists of America called: Paint 'n Spurs. About the Author Barbara Marriott has an eclectic career history that runs the gamut from fashion copywriting to editing a French Riviera newspaper, from management consultant to university professor, with a Ph.D. in cultural anthropology tucked in her pocket. Now retired, she spends her time writing fun historical fantasies and historical nonfiction, and is the author of several books including: Take the Train to Tucson and In Our Own Words. Fireship Press P.O.

BWW Review: Holding On to Holden at the New Ohio Theatre
by Kristen Morale - Jan 11, 2017

One can only imagine why a person chooses to write, filling the desolate borders of blank pages with untold stories; one can only imagine the reasons. It probably more often than not has to do with a need to create and less so the recognition or desire to see what comes of it. To dedicate a life to words and giving them the power of the soul's expression is something truly special, especially when fact and creation collide in a beautifully turbulent way. Holden, written and directed by Anisa George, is the first time an audience can see reality and fiction so intertwined to tell the various stories of a single life, shown by characters who are, to quote Fitzgerald for a moment, "within and without." Now being performed at the New Ohio Theatre, Holden brings about the complexities of late author J.D. Salinger's life through personal issues that arose because of those words he shared with the world…and those he chose not to. (more...)

BWW Review: Steppenwolf's STRAIGHT WHITE MEN Examine Their Role in Society
by Patrick Rybarczyk - Feb 15, 2017

As you walk into the theatre for Steppenwolf's production of Jean Lee's Straight White Men, you are offered ear plugs. Why? There is extremely loud music playing and it contains lyrics that could certainly be considered offensive to some. Starting off this way has likely, as we are told by two gender fluid actors, made 'some of you' uncomfortable. The idea is that we all live in varying levels of comfort in our society based on our race, sexual identity, or social status. (more...)
