BWW Review: MACBETH, National Theatre
by Marianka Swain - Mar 7, 2018

BWW Review: AN AMERICAN IN PARIS at Chapman Music Hall - Tulsa Performing Arts Center
by Jericho Thomas - Jun 21, 2018

Eiffel in love. A quarter of the way through its second act, "An American in Paris" transforms from a golden-age dancebox musical into full-out modern musical theatre. The quintet of lovers at the heart of its story weave their raw, overlapping passions through three songs written by George and Ira Gershwin. And they do it all while barely moving. It's a welcome moment of stillness in an otherwise kinetic show. (more...)

by David Fick - Jul 2, 2017

The Market Theatre production of Paul Slabolepszy's SUDDENLY THE STORM is currently in the middle of its Cape Town season at the Baxter Theatre.

BWW Review: Confronting the Paradoxes of Faith in EVERYTHING IS WONDERFUL at CATF
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Jul 16, 2017

I do not read Marcantel as indicting religion as such; she shows us how much groundedness and understanding faith gives. Every faith needs, and has, its own 'Ordnung,' but in order to live fully and well, Marcantel seems to be saying, believers will always need to transcend it. And then, as the play hints, believers will also need to return to it. Every faith journey will thus be a work in progress, forever. (more...)

BWW Review: Arts Center of Cannon County's GREASE is Fun, But Out of Step With The Times
by Jeffrey Ellis - Jul 13, 2018

It's fun, perhaps even joyful, and audiences are clearly delighted to reward director Matthew Hayes Hunter's youthful cast with riotous applause at the appropriate moments, but do they really endorse the message of the timeworn Jacobs and Casey script? Heck, do they even think about it? (more...)

BWW Review: 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL, Savoy Theatre
by Marianka Swain - Feb 17, 2019

In a programme interview, Patricia Resnick - writer of both the original 1980 film and this 2008 musical adaptation - notes that Jane Fonda wanted to convey a political message about workplace sexism, but realised couching it in comedy would make it more palatable. Like composer Dolly Parton herself, who appears on video to top and tail the stage show, it's a considered combination of sugar and steel. (more...)

BWW Review: WEST SIDE STORY Comes Alive in Immersive Production at Theater West End in Sanford, FL
by Aaron Wallace - Feb 17, 2019

At Theater West End, you've entered the world of WEST SIDE STORY before even taking your seat. Getting there requires walking across the blue-collar, gang-ridden streets of 1950s New York in the Upper West Side. There's graffiti on the floor beneath you and the walls all around. T-shirts hang out to dry on clotheslines over your head. There's a basketball goal on the cage-wire fence the band sits behind. You might even be seated next to a fire hydrant or a traffic cone. It takes a moment to remember that this same space was home to Madison County's bridges just a couple months ago... (more...)

BWW Review: RAGTIME Revival Couldn't Come at a Better Time
by Ellen Dostal - Feb 15, 2019

How do you scale down an epic musical like RAGTIME for a smaller stage and a different time? When it opened at the Shubert Theatre in Century City in 1997, the cast numbered nearly fifty, the same as it would for its Broadway debut later that year. The stage was enormous and the production filled every inch of it. I still remember how the sheer volume of the choral numbers gave me chills. (more...)

BWW Review: HAMILTON, Victoria Palace Theatre
by Marianka Swain - Dec 22, 2017

Does Hamilton live up the hype - and will it appeal to British audiences? Yes, and yes again. It's not like America has a monopoly on national identity crisis, leadership, immigration, parenthood, grief, sex scandals and political rivalries. But beyond that, it's just a blisteringly great night out: universally thrilling entertainment. (more...)

BWW Review: Musical Adaptation of Jane Austen's EMMA Beguiles at OC's Chance Theater
by Michael Quintos - Dec 19, 2018

While watching Chance Theater's brand new OC-premiere of EMMA: THE MUSICAL--Paul Gordon's charm-filled 2007 stage musical adaptation of Jane Austen's beloved 1815 novel--I noticed a welcome sensation that took over me throughout most of the production… I could not stop smiling.
