BWW Review: Lipscomb University Theatre's GODSPELL Filled With Heart and Soul
by Jeffrey Ellis - Nov 3, 2018

Patriq James' graceful portrayal of Jesus Christ in Lipscomb University Theatre's production of Godspell - now onstage in Collins Alumni Auditorium on the school's Nashville campus - shines like a beacon in the very center of the show, providing the very heart of every story told by director Scott Baker's 17-person cast. But if James provides the show's heart, it is perhaps the members of Baker's ensemble, which includes a deft blending of experienced student actors with an assortment of newcomers to their company, who provide its soul.

by BWW News Desk - Mar 7, 2019

American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) Artistic Director Pam MacKinnon announced the full cast and creative team for Vanity Fair, acclaimed playwright Kate Hamill's rollicking new stage adaptation of William Thackeray's classic 19th-century novel that pops with 21st-century spirit. Ambitious Becky Sharp may not have been born with wealth or status, but she's determined to attain both-at any cost. Armed with fierce wit and calculating charm, Becky forges her own path through London's high society, dealing herself into a game she was never invited to play. Displaying the celebrated audacity and verve that she brought to her adaptation of Sense & Sensibility, Hamill conjures an inventive and lively period drama that combines a fierce contemporary edge with the theatricality of Victorian Burlesque.

BWW Review: Verge Theater's THE FLICK Best of 2018 to Date
by Jeffrey Ellis - Jun 5, 2018

At first blush, it would be easy to say that there's not much action packed into Annie Baker's The Flick - now onstage in a noteworthy production from Nashville's Verge Theater Company at Belmont's Black Box Theater - but that is, in fact, a pretty simplistic take on a story that is as complex and as diverting as real life itself. And just like life, Baker's Pulitzer Prize-winning script packs a whole lot of drama into its storyline, which is brought to life by a superb cast of actors under the direction of Jaclyn Jutting.

BWW Review: Spirit of Chaplin Lives in VISIONS OF LOVE by Pointless Theatre
by Roger Catlin - Jan 21, 2019

By 1931, technology had advanced enough to allow Charlie Chaplin to make his latest film, 'City Lights,' as a talkie. But why would he? By then, he had mastered his singularly poetic choreography that universally communicated comedy without need for language. Further, he could use advancements in sound to take control of the musical accompaniment. If individual theaters had erratic success in accompanying his films music, now they were not only uniform, but using a full score he composed himself - another Chaplin talent that flowered.

BWW Review: Nashville Story Garden's Stunning IRONBOUND Closes All-Too-Brief Run Tonight
by Jeffrey Ellis - Feb 2, 2019

For Darya, a 42-year-old Polish emigre eking out a meager and bleak existence in New Jersey, life in America seems far less promising than she may have considered at the outset of her journey. But in Martyna Majok's exquisitely crafted and beautifully written play - Ironbound - which ends its all-too-brief Nashville run tonight, there is a glimmer (a very faint one, truth be told, but a glimmer nonetheless) of hope that may augur a brighter future ahead.

by Sam Abney - Dec 20, 2018

Some people go to the theater to find a place to escape from the world around them. If you are one of those people, Studio Theatre's production of Kings wont be your cup of tea. This production is often an uncomfortably real exploration of politics, lobbyists and daily life in the heart of our nation. It takes a moment for the plot to get moving, but once it has left the station, Kings proved to be a thoroughly enjoyable ride. (more...)

BWW Interview: Ira David Wood IV Walks The Edge As Director, Performer And Puppeteer in Theatre In The Park's HAND TO GOD
by Lauren Van Hemert - Apr 30, 2018

Robert Askins' Tony Award nominated play Hand to God is about a puppet ministry in Texas that goes awry when a sock puppet wreaks havoc on the church, the pastor, and the other kids. Billed for mature audiences only, Ira David Wood IV says the irreverent Hand to God is one of those plays that walks the edge but never really crosses the line. Wood not only directs this production, but also steps into the dual role of the troubled teen Jason and his demonic puppet. This is his second time taking on the role of both director and performer, the first of which was Theatre in the Park's 2009 production of Romeo and Juliet, starring his sister, Evan Rachel Wood.
