BWW Review: Eric Coble's SWAGGER Mesmerizes Young Audiences
by Courtney Hess - Sep 18, 2018

Palm Beach Gardens, Fl. (September 12, 2018) -  Eric Coble's new play "Swagger", developed by Palm Beach Dramaworks as part of the One Humanity Tour, captivated the sixth grade students at Watson B. Duncan Middle School. The piece and accompanying talk back served to strengthen the bond between young citizens and their local police officers by generating discussion and providing resources without taking a side on what is today a hot topic issue.

Mocking a Personality Cult: PUTIN ON ICE at Single Carrot
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Sep 17, 2018

In a short 2016 profile in American Theatre, Russian emigre director Yury Ornov expounded on the freedoms of theater: 'You can hate people; you can do a hate show about Putin, for example, or about your ex-wife.' It seems that Lola B. Pierson's Putin On Ice (That Isn't the Real Title of This Show) is the hate show about Putin that Urnov, a close associate of Pierson through Baltimore's Acme Corporation, had in mind. (That said, Genevieve de Mahy, the Artistic Director of Single Carrot Theatre, on whose premises that show, a joint production with the Acme Corporation, is now playing, claims in a program note that the idea came from Single Carrot.) In the same profile just mentioned, Ornov emphasized how important and liberating it was to laugh at the things that distress us. Putin On Ice is nothing if not funny, though, as my companion on press night pointed out, there was a risk, throughout most of the show, that the laughs would ultimately obscure the seriousness and the threat of its subject.

BWW Review: Book-It's JANE EYRE Has Fire but Lacks Passion
by Jay Irwin - Sep 16, 2018

Well, Dear Readers, this is a first for me. It seems the first Mrs. Rochester got a little over excited and jumped the gun as we had a fire alarm about 20 minutes into opening night of Book-It's "Jane Eyre" and we all were treated to an early intermission and a breath of fresh air. Luckily it quickly resolved itself and we were let back in for the show to pick up where we left off, ironically with Jane discussing the fires of hell with Mr. Brocklehurst. And while Jane does get quite keyed up in that conversation and her subsequent one telling off Mrs. Reed, unfortunately that's about as passionate as our Jane got. (more...)

BWW Review: Seattle Shakes and Upstart Crow Bring Down the House Again with RICHARD III
by Jay Irwin - Sep 15, 2018

Dear Readers, if you were lucky enough to catch Seattle Shakespeare Company and Upstart Crow's all female epic productions of the "Henry VI" Trilogy that they dubbed "Bring Down the House" and showed in two parts a few years back then you know of the power that they brought to the stage with some of the best female actors sinking their teeth into those traditionally male cast characters. And you also may have had the same wish that many others had, including myself, that they'd keep that train going especially once they'd seen the remarkable Sarah Harlett play the young hunchback Richard, Duke of Gloucester, with such malevolent zeal. Who wouldn't then want to see her go on to play him in the sequel, "Richard III"? Because we all love a sequel. Well, wish granted. The hunchback is back and scheming around the boards of the Leo K. Theatre at the Seattle Rep and is just as glorious as before. (more...)

Kristin Chenoweth 'Comes Home' For Trio of Concerts With the Nashville Symphony

There's just something about Kristin Chenoweth.
