Based on the stories of Rudyard Kipling

How did the Elephant get his trunk?br



How did the Leopard get his spots?br



How did the Rhinoceros get his skin?brbr



In the "Just So Stories," Rudyard Kipling created a magical world as he told his daughter fables of the animal kingdom. In "Just So," George Stiles and Anthony Drewe ("Honk!") have created a new musical that weaves five of Mr. Kipling's most famous tales together into a fanciful lesson about personal courage, individuality and friendship.

BWW Previews: FIDDLER ON THE ROOF at Ciampa Performing Arts Center
by Emily Holzman - May 4, 2017

Almost every family and community has some sort of tradition that continues throughout the years, despite any changes the group goes through. This idea is reflected in the show Fiddler on the Roof, as many of the plot points in the show are based on traditions that the people of Anatevka don't remember the origins of. Inspired by the show, I decided to ask the cast and crew of Tyngsborough High School's production of Fiddler on the Roof what their favorite tradition has been throughout their Tyngsborough theatre career.

BWW Interview: SOMETHING ROTTEN!'s Coming to Nebraska with Nebraska Natives!
by Christine Swerczek - May 3, 2017

SOMETHING ROTTEN!'s heading to Omaha and someone local along with it. Actually, there are two "local" actors in this wonderfully silly, delightful Tony-nominated hit. One is Daniel Beeman from Bellevue, Nebraska. Daniel is a 2011 graduate of Bellevue West High School and is traveling in his national touring debut as chorus member and understudy for the character of Shakespeare, played by Broadway favorite Adam Pascal. I called Daniel and questioned him a bit about his new career and the show. (more...)

Will Hannagan Brings Nostalgic New Cabaret SONGS FOR JACK to The Butterfly Club
by BWW News Desk - May 2, 2017

 'As a kid I remember staying at my grandparents a lot. Nana baking apple slice while yelling at the television; Jacko (that's my grandpa) feeding the chooks, regaling us with stories of their youth. He'd tell us how he used to ride into Hamilton at night, kip on the freezing platform, Just So he'd get to Melbourne in time to watch his sweetheart sing at the St Kilda Town Hall. Theirs was a romance that endured. Sixty years. And I only caught the tail end of it.' (more...)

BWW Interview: A Conversation with Bronson Pinchot at Dad's Garage Theatre
by Amy Zipperer - May 1, 2017

I'm at Dad's Garage Theatre for the latest installment of Scandal, the weekly improvised soap opera that tells the story of the proprietors, employees, and guests of a 5-star hotel called The Four Sleazins and Danglerzzzz, a seedy strip club that shares the building space. A man in front of me raises his beer high above his head during the show, offering accolades to the weekend's special guest, Bronson Pinchot, best known for his work as Balki Bartokomous on the long-running sitcom Perfect Strangers. Pinchot plays a character named Klemm, an uber-famous director who's come to The Four Sleazins to deliver important news: his lover, Ashley Andover, is also his (gasp) daughter. Pinchot, as one might expect, looks at home on the stage as he reclines in a not-for-reclining chair and suggestively strokes a bottle he's shoved into his pocket, begging a fellow cast member to "touch it." Oh, and he does all of this while pretending to be blind, a character trait of his cross-eyed Klemm. After the show, I'm hurried into a backstage area. I enter from the left. Pinchot enters from the right. He moves fast, shoving a sandwich into his mouth with one hand and holding a drink in the other. It is impossible for us to shake hands, so he suggests that we bump elbows instead, and I comply. He drops into a chair and beckons me to pull up another. There is an openness about his body language and a warmth in his familiar eyes that sets me at ease. I feel like I'm sitting down with an old friend. And, in a way, I am. Because even though he doesn't know me, I know him. He's our cousin from Mypos. The one who's always involved in some misunderstanding. The one with the crazy accent. The one whose pictures I pulled out of Rolling Stone magazine to decorate the back of my bedroom door. And he's hardly changed at all. (more...)

BWW Recap: GREY'S ANATOMY Pays Tribute to Moms Everywhere in a Heartbreaking Episode; Ellen Pompeo Directs!
by Lauren Gienow - Mar 31, 2017

Tonight's emotional hour was entitled “Be Still My Soul” and it marked lead, Ellen Pompeo's directorial debut. Two weeks ago at Paleyfest, Ms. Pompeo commented on how the story in this episode had a great deal of meaning to her and it was important that this be the one that she direct. The episode centers on Maggie's struggle to come to terms with her mother's illness and eventual death. It also explores the beautiful relationship that exists between a child (of any age) and their mother. Guest star LaTanya Richardson Jackson is fantastic as Diane Pierce and Kelly McCreary (Maggie) breaks hearts with her performance. (more...)

BWW Blog: Cheyenne Dalton - Giving DROWSY A New Meaning
by Guest Blogger: Cheyenne Dalton - Mar 20, 2017

I was the assistant sound designer and the sound engineer for Auburn University Theatre's production of The Drowsy Chaperone. My duties ran from paperwork, to recordings, to sound pick-up, load-in, running the show, and strike. The sound designer was Anthony Narciso, who we have hired three times previously to design sound for our shows. I am still amazed at how much he can teach me, and how much I still have to learn, regardless of how well I'm doing at sound at the moment. There is never a moment when I want to stop learning about my field, or really when I want to stop learning in general. There is always going to be someone out there who knows more than I do, and it's not as threatening as it may seem. It's a challenge, yes, but also a wonderful experience of sharing and collaborating with what we know. I'm happy to announce that now I know what microphone Mariah Carey wants for her performances, and I know why she wants that, and why it matters. I can tell you what a line array is, and I've learned so much more about EQ than I thought I was going to during the run of The Drowsy Chaperone (like how bringing down a frequency will notch out those harsh "s" sounds, and how I should always cut out the low end of the frequencies).

Guest Blog: Playwright Nicholas de Jongh on Shakespeare's Sexuality and PRICKED OUT
by Guest Blog: Nicholas de Jongh - Mar 20, 2017

My play Pricked Out may be set in Dorset on Midsummer's Day 2016, where two young men meet and make a sensational discovery about themselves, but the focus is on time past - in the shape of William Shakespeare and the extraordinary revelation of his sonnets, published in 1609 to far more embarrassed silence than to general applause. It was the playwright's greatest act of self-exposure and a most uncharacteristic one at that from a man known for his canniness and personal diplomacy… (more...)

BWW Review: DIVORCE PARTY and the End of Life As We [Don't Really] Know It
by Kristen Morale - Apr 25, 2017

What we have here is a masterfully crafted show called Divorce Party, something so wacky and farfetched but so rooted in the inward and outward complexities of life (as are so many absurd things) that it encapsulates life as we acknowledge it to be, but are not always so eager or able to share with others. Real, tangible life where the irony here is that everyone lives in an acknowledged fantasy - the worst kind of all, where you know you are falling and failing but can't help yourself or do anything to change the circumstances. Six friends who come together to witness how "happy" their two recently divorced friends are is already a precursor to disaster, an epiphany waiting to happen because of how "happy" they truly are not. This is the best new disaster happening in the East Village, and from the ingenious plot to the messed up crew who make it all too real, you are absolutely going to love this show. (more...)

Yes, yes, we all know… Bette Midler is the above the title attraction and her presence is the reason the latest Broadway revival of HELLO, DOLLY! is the season's hottest new ticket. And she delivers.
