Kristin Chenoweth 'Comes Home' For Trio of Concerts With the Nashville Symphony
by Jeffrey Ellis - Sep 14, 2018

There's just something about Kristin Chenoweth. It's almost undefinable, perhaps even undescribable, yet as with any writer's efforts to put into words how remarkable the woman behind the image is, I'll give it my best shot, attempting to encapsulate the wonder that is Kristin Chenoweth in 2,000 words or less (but if I go over, don't judge too harshly - I'm simply stating the facts that prove the folly of my initial hypothesis).

Pentabus Theatre Company and New Perspectives Present CROSSINGS
by BWW News Desk - Sep 13, 2018

As we approach the centenary of the Armistice of 1918, leading rural touring companies New Perspectives and Pentabus have joined forces for the first time to explore the legacies of conflict and the unexpected stories that emerge from war. Shifting between 1919 and 2019, this subversive piece of new writing by award-winning Irish playwright Deirdre Kinahan looks at solace across the century: those who have found refuge in the English countryside from more recent conflicts in Sarajevo, and those who turned to women's clothing to escape the bravado and brutality of military life in the WW1 trenches.

Emma Ruth Rundle Releases Music Video For LIGHT SONG
by BWW News Desk - Sep 12, 2018

Days away from the release of her triumphant third full-length album On Dark Horses, Emma Ruth Rundle has unveiled a darkly romantic music video for “Light Song.” No stranger to mining her life for inspiration, this new track and its accompanying video celebrate a completely new chapter for the songwriter; after sparks turned to an undeniable infatuation between her and Evan Patterson of Jaye Jayle (resulting in their 2017 Johnny & June-esque split EP The Time Between Us), Rundle uprooted her life on the west coast in favor of Patterson's hometown of Louisville. That sense of settling, of roots digging into new soil and heartbeats steadying into a daily rhythm, is what propels the record. Strapped with equestrian themes and Patterson on backing vocals, Rundle's new environment is as much of a character throughout the album as she herself.  With Rundle's breathy but brooding vocals coupling with Patterson's smoky baritone, “Light Song” flaunts their artistic duality and flair for aural drama, a powerhouse partnership that is only amplified by stalwart backing rhythms. (more...)

BWW Previews: THE GOOD SWIMMER World Premiere at BAM Fishman Space
by Cindy Sibilsky - Nov 25, 2018

The saying, 'Good things come to those who wait,' could certainly be applied to the world premiere of The Good Swimmer playing at BAM's Fishman Space as part of the Next Wave festival from November 28th-December 1st. Defined as a pop requiem for the youth of the Vietnam War, this collaboration between Heidi Rodewald (music) and Donna Di Novelli (lyrics) directed by Kevin Newbury has been the better part of a decade in the making since the two women began working on the piece at a Eugene O'Neill Theater Center residency and left with three songs based on text from out-of-print lifesaving manuals that would become the foundation of The Good Swimmer -- the title song, 'Red Cross' and 'Double Drowning'.
