BWW Review: Not All Deals Are What They Seem in THE PRICE
by Herbert Paine - Oct 24, 2016

BWW Review: Lake Worth Playhouse's URINETOWN a Rush of Wit
by Trevor Durham - Oct 22, 2016

Political humor and an abundance of urine aren't an obvious match for downtown Lake Worth's theatre scene. Artistic director Jodie Dixon-Mears and director Clayton Phillips decided, after many years of waiting, that the time was ripe to throw Mark Hollman and Greg Kotis' satirical masterpiece at the Palm Beaches. Boasting a cast of strong vocalists, and the comedic timing this show requires, Urinetown at the Lake Worth Playhouse is a strong stream of wit. (more...)

Getting to Know...JEREMY BENTON Again After His Astaire Award Nomination
by Jeffrey Ellis - May 3, 2016

Hard to believe, but it's been four years since we sat down with Jeremy Benton, whom we've since referred to as Broadway's Best Tap Dancer every chance we've had, and now it seems as that title has become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Just yesterday, Benton - a native of Springfield, Tennessee - was honored with a nomination for a Fred and Adele Astaire Award in the category for best off-Broadway male dancer, heralding his critically acclaimed role in Cagney, the Musical.

BWW Review: SPRING AWAKENING at Runway Theatre
by Kyle Christopher West - May 22, 2016

In 2007, Dunken Sheik and Steven Sater's rock musical SPRING AWAKENING took home eight of the eleven Tony Awards it was nominated for, including the coveted Best Musical award. It was bold, new, edgy - and it caught the hearts and minds of everyone who saw it. Although the current local production at Runway Theatre is unlikely to be held to the same standards, the audience reaction to the company's opening night performance was every bit as excited about the show as the audiences in New York.

Fiddler, Vocalist Maarja Nuut Releases IN THE HOLD OF A DREAM Album Today
by BWW News Desk - Jun 3, 2016

Estonian fiddler and vocalist Maarja Nuut's 12-track full-length album In the Hold of a Dream arrives today, June 3, 2016, leading listeners into an ambient, looping electronic retelling of the village musical traditions of pre-war Europe. Nuut's spellbinding storytelling is an extension of a hushed, minimalistic technique that creates a 21st century intersection of fiddle, vocal etherealism, and a looping pedal re-rendering of the artist's lucid dreams as they meet reconstructions of Estonian folk traditions.

An undercurrent of anger bubbles just beneath the surface and we are told repeatedly that these are days of caution.  (more...)

BWW Interview: A Reputation to Protect: Neil Starkenberg Stars as MSMT's Danny Zuko
by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Jul 16, 2017

'I imagine that Danny is the youngest in a family of boys, and he feels he has to live up to the name Zuko at Rydell High. In the movie he says 'I've got a reputation to protect,' and I think that goes a long way to explaining his behavior.'

BWW Review: Upstream Theater's Haunting SHINING CITY
by Chris Gibson - Feb 15, 2016

Everyone needs someone who's a good listener when they're troubled. And, when you find yourself hesitant or unable to open up to a loved one about something, you can always seek out a therapist to talk to. Therapists offer objective observations that allow their patients to express their feelings without the fear of being judged harshly or over-critically. They're also there to provide assistance in modifying behaviors and thought patterns which are affecting your ability to fully function, at least, if they're any good at what they do. But, they're people too. They have their own lives and their own baggage. Playwright Conor McPherson enters this private world with his work, SHINING CITY, a spellbinding examination of a group of people who all seem to have 'unfinished business', and as director Toni Dorfman notes in the program, 'a need for absolution'. Upstream Theater's production is excellent, and I found myself completely immersed to the point where the play lingered in my memory for days after I'd seen it. That's compelling stuff, and it's the type of work that Upstream does on a consistent basis. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Passions Erupt in THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY at The Fox Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Apr 9, 2016

Based on the novel by Robert James Waller, that people seem to either love or loath, THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY would seem to be a story which relies very heavily on particular imagery conjured up in the readers' mind by the landscape the characters occupy. The film version did make a valiant effort to convey that, even if it had a number of shortcomings. But, that would seem to be a rather large hurdle to clear for a stage production, much less a musical. So, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I genuinely enjoyed this musical adaptation. Jason Robert Brown's music and lyrics (book by Marsha Norman) fit each character and moment like a glove, while Dancing Around different styles to reflect various moods and emotions. Plus, the story is compelling enough to translate to a wide audience, especially those who like their stories a bit sentimental and bittersweet. The current touring production onstage at The Fox Theatre is certainly well worthy of your time and attention, and you can see it through April 17th, 2016. (more...)
