At the Drop of a Hat is a musical revue by Flanders and Swann, described by them as "an after-dinner farrago". In the show, they both sang on a nearly bare stage, accompanied by Swann on the piano. The songs were linked by contemporary social commentary, mostly by Flanders. After a long London run the show played in the US, Switzerland, and on tour in Britain.


BWW Review: Forward Flux's Double Feature, Pt. 2: She's 32, He's 15, NO MORE SAD THINGS Is Still Worth Seeing
by Amelia Reynolds - Sep 24, 2017

It starts ambiguously; two actors stare lovingly into each other's eyes, knelt on the ground as a third person sound-checks their ukulele. The two lovebirds Jessiee (Kiki Abba) and Kahekili (Lance Valdez), do not look like your typical, starry-eyed couple. And that kind of becomes the joke in No More Sad Things . Now performing as part two of Forward Flux's double-feature, No More Sad Things examines an inappropriate relationship that satisfies two people on a cosmic level (and that's the only level that audience members will be comfortable with).

by Alexander Garza - May 16, 2016

Anthony unexpectedly appears in his classmate's room to seek her help in completing a project, the night before it is due. Through an emotionally tumultuous journey, they delve into the mysteries of Walt Whitman's "Leaves of Grass", unaware that something deeper has brought them together. I AND YOU won the 2014 ATCA/Steinberg New Play Award and was a Susan Smith Blackburn Prize finalist.

BWW Review: MURDER FOR TWO at ACT Slays with Laughs
by Jay Irwin - Mar 31, 2017

Expect to be killed when you attend the current production of "Murder for Two" at ACT Theatre in conjunction with The 5th Avenue Theatre. You won't be shot or stabbed but you certainly run the risk of busting a gut, passing out from a lack of oxygen, or just generally dying of laughter largely due to the comic brilliance of its two leads.

Glee-Cap: Series Finale '2009/Dreams Come True': Don't Stop Believin, Hold On To That Feeling.
by Robert Lawlor - Mar 20, 2015

Finales of musicals wrap great stories up in wondrous melody: sometimes in great joy and rapture and sometimes in heartbreaking reality. The finale of Glee will I'm sure be no different, and I wouldn't want it to be anything less than a mix of the joy and the sadness. I never dreamed that I would get the chance to write for BroadwayWorld or any professional website, so when I first got offered the position in season two, I wasn't sure if I would be any good at it. In that moment, I felt kind of circa Season 1 New Directions - an underdog aiming to make something special happen. I can't say for sure how good I've been at this, but I've enjoyed having this place, having this moment and sharing it with however many people have read these ridiculous recaps week to week for five years.

BWW Review: NOISES OFF at CHAUTAUQUA THEATER COMPANY
by Michael Rabice - Jul 7, 2017

There can be great comedy in repetition. Allowing an audience to think they know what is coming next but slipping in an unexpected variation on a theme can throw you for a comedic loop. This premise is the basis for Michael Frayn's rioutously successful 1982 farce, NOISES OFF. The Chautauqua Theater Company is mounting a joyous production in their Bratton Theater that has theatre goers giddy with the onstage silliness. (more...)

BWW Review: Make Room For A BENCH IN THE SUN ~ It Radiates With Humor and Insight
by Herbert Paine - Jul 14, 2017

An entirely delightful gem of a production of Ron Clark's A BENCH IN THE SUN has opened at Don Bluth Front Row Theatre, and the chemistry between its two leads is a sight to behold. Lee Cooley (revealing an impeccable sense of comic timing and caricature) and Jim Coates (an ideal foil to his benchmate's bon mots and taunts) are polar opposites, Harold and Burt, residents of Valley View Gardens, joined at their arthritic hips by the bonds of time ~ past, present, and the inevitable future. Donna Kaufman adds spice to the mix as a still starry-eyed veteran of filmdom who catches the boys' eyes. (more...)

BWW Reviews: ORPHEUS DESCENDING Seethes With Raw Power, Love and Lust
by Jay Irwin - Jul 13, 2015

When you see as many shows as I do as a theater reviewer there are shows that, on the surface, make you concerned as to what you're about to see. Such a show was "Orpheus Descending" developed and performed by the Williams Project at 12th Avenue Arts as part of the Intiman Theatre Festival. I mean we're talking about a 3 hour Tennessee Williams play put on by a brand new to Seattle theatre company. But it's moments like this that make being a theater reviewer worth all the time spent when that trepidation turns into absolute awe-inspired elation at seeing a beautifully simple, well thought out and brilliantly portrayed production such as this that ranks up there with one of the best things I've seen all year.

BWW Review: Victorian Charmer ENGAGED Right at Home at Royal George Theatre
by Michael Rabice - Jul 11, 2016

The Shaw Festival has unearthed a bit of a gem, that in lesser hands may be considered no more than a cubic zirconium. W.S. Gilbert's ENGAGED is a frothy trifle that seems perfect for a midsummer's night. This delightful piece of Victoriana theatre can best be thought of as a play with thin operetta plot (sans music). Gilbert and Sullivan are definitely the better known commodity, but Gilbert did work alone at times and his theatrical pieces are all but forgotten. In ENGAGED Gilbert again shows his adeptness at social commentary, marriage and the quest for wealth. (more...)

BWW Review: EXIT PLUTO at Strand Theater Company Explores Something New
by Kristen Price - Jan 26, 2017

Having the chance to see a brand new play always fascinates me. The time and creativity that the playwright has put into their work must be astronomical. I can't imagine the satisfaction and pride they feel when the curtain finally comes up on their vision. To help these playwrights realize their visions, The Strand Theater Company, a small theater in Baltimore County has devoted time and energy to producing only new works. In the case of this season, all of these works will be written and directed by female artists - a worthy cause in an industry where most men still dominate the writing and directing fields.

Desert Rose Playhouse succeeds spectacularly in its 2016 Gay Heritage play: Tony Kushner's ANGELS IN AMERICA, PART ONE: MILLENIUM APPROACHES. Director Jim Strait superbly stages the iconic show about the challenges of being gay in the 1980's. The cast and design are excellent. The production is a must-see. (more...)

BWW Interviews: BLOOD, SWEAT AND MOUSEKETEERS! Lindsey Alley At The COPA PALM SPRINGS 1/16-17
by David Green - Jan 16, 2015

Lindsey Alley brings her acclaimed one woman show to The COPA Palm Springs for two performances, January 16 and 17, at 8:00 pm. Lindsey has been performing in theatre, television and film since the age of six. In 1989, Lindsey was cast as a Mouseketeer on the Disney Channel's All New Mickey Mouse Club, performing alongside Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Ryan Gosling and Keri Russell. She was one of only three cast members to appear in the pilot and all seven seasons of the show. On Broadway, Lindsey covered the role of Older Helen in Hollywood Arms (written by Carol Burnett and directed by Harold Prince). In 2006, her one-woman show, Look Ma...No Ears ran for six weeks at the Laurie Beechman Theatre in New York City. I had the chance to catch up with Lindsey, on her lunch break from rehearsals for the Broadway bound FIRST WIVES CLUB, as she was preparing for her Palm Springs weekend. Here are a few excerpts from that conversation. (more...)

BWW Review: Seattle Rep's WELL Hilariously Deconstructs One-Woman Shows
by Jay Irwin - Feb 16, 2017

Author Lisa Kron is known for her one-woman shows. I am known for having issues with one-person shows, as they tend to be someone else's therapy on stage. Luckily Kron also understands that issue as she very self referentially mocks those kinds of shows in her play "Well", currently at the Seattle Rep, as she deconstructs shows like this and really all shows with her hilarious exploration that has "nothing to do with her relationship with her Mother!"

BWW Review: Fiasco Theater Gets Creative with INTO THE WOODS at Kennedy Center
by Jennifer Perry - Dec 9, 2016

While those seeking a similarly scaled production to the original Broadway production (or even the revival) might leave the Eisenhower Theatre somewhat disappointed, those open to experiencing a new interpretation of the familiar material might leave feeling they've had an opportunity to look at an old favorite with new eyes. Perhaps they might better appreciate what drew them to the story in the first place. (more...)

BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL Reinvents Scrooge
by Katherine Waddell - Dec 13, 2016

It's quite a feat to take one of the most over-done holiday shows ever and make it feel brand new, but that's exactly what The Acting Ensemble has done with their recently opened show, A Christmas Carol. It's a story that everyone knows, and has probably seen time and time again, but through the approach that director James Geisel has taken, the show feels infinitely more interesting than the average theaters' take on the classic.

BWW Review: HT DARLING'S INCREDIBLE MUSAEUM at Submersive Productions Explores Life on Another Planet
by Kristen Price - Apr 5, 2017

Immersive theater has been an idea I've heard good things and bad things about but haven't had any real experiences with. I know the general idea - you're sort of dropped into this world and you have to react based on what's going on around you. It's a creative and equally terrifying prospect for actors I'm sure. I can't imagine relying on what random people are saying or doing to shape my character, but that's why they're actors and I'm not. After hearing all of these things and never experiencing them for myself, I thought it was about time I saw this type of creativity first hand, and lucky for me Submersive Productions was setting up shop in the Peale Museum in Baltimore City for their next immersive theater experience.

In this day and age, race and social class are very challenging topics to discuss. Everyone has an opinion, and many are unafraid to share it. These clashing views can sometimes render these subjects somewhat taboo, but Oyster Mill Playhouse is choosing to bring these tricky topics to light. With a touch of humor and heart, their current production of SUPERIOR DONUTS is one that speaks to the genuine power of friendship and empathy, while giving the audience a laugh or two along the way.
