by BWW News Desk - Sep 8, 2017

POONSTRUCK follows a shero's journey told through the orifices of Dr Tallulah, a fiery Sexual Activist, Zen Cosmetologist, and Intuitive Energy Healer. Imagine a metaphysical cross between Archie Bunker, Dr Ruth, Carol Burnett, and Maria Bamford with a splash of cosmic organic viagra! Dr Tallulah's twisted storytelling involves a personal revelation, embodies the zeitgeist of a New Age baby boomer generation, utilizes Qi-Gong Gi-Long foam rolling techniques, and taps into 'La Femme Fontaine' (just a little (spr)YAY!)!

by Herbert Paine - Sep 18, 2017

BWW Review: AVENUE Q at Playhouse On Park
by Joseph Harrison - Sep 16, 2017

As a young child, one of my favorite things to do was sit in front of the television, probably with a bowl of sugary cereal, and see what my friends who lived on Sesame Street were learning (and teaching me) that day. I consider the lessons I learned in my living room as the foundation that my future education was built upon. But what happens when characters like that grow up? Do they still rely upon each other for support and to help work out how to navigate the growing complexity of life? Do they still have helpful lessons to share? And would their style (and humor) grow up with them as well? It is this concept that grounds Robert Lopez, Jeff Marx, and Jeff Whitty's Tony Award winning musical, AVENUE Q, which opens the 9th season at West Hartford's Playhouse on Park. (more...)

The musical, featuring emotionally revealing musical selections filled with side-splitting lyrics written by William Finn, chronicles the overachievers' angst of six precocious adolescents who turn out to be the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom the Bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

Mad Cat Live! to Perform Black Sabbath Vol. 4 at The Gleason Room
by BWW News Desk - Sep 14, 2017

Mad Cat kicks off their 18th season with their popular concert series Mad Cat Live performing Black Sabbath's Vol. 4. Mad Cat Live is a series dedicated to presenting transitional albums by major artists and deconstructing them in order to place them into a current context. Sabbath's Vol.4 is a perfect fit for the series, as it marked a tipping point for the band; pushing their creative limits as well as driving them into a state of drug abuse, paranoia, and violence. Just in time for Halloween, this limited engagement will be a must-see live event for fans of Sabbath; a heavy metal band who began their dramatic 50 year history in Birmingham, England as a jazz-blues quartet called Earth, only to find themselves evolving into one of the most influential bands in the history of hard rock. Breathing life into today's generation of punks and rockers, Black Sabbath provided a response to the punctured love bubble of the 60s, an angry war cry to all things soft, light, and filled with pretense. The audacity of their rebellion in the face of a changing nation, is all the more relevant today. (more...)

BWW Review: Irreverent "Book of Mormon" Delights in Return Visit at State Theatre
by Roy Berko - Sep 14, 2017

One of the major concerns in attending a return visit by a Broadway touring show is that the production will be a lesser version. Those planning on attending 'Book of Mormon,' now on stage at the State Theatre, should have no fears. This reincarnation is equally good as any of the other versions that have trucked into town. In fact, it is probably better than some of the others. (more...)

by Don Grigware - Sep 11, 2017

Neil Simon's Pulitzer Prize-winning dramedy Lost in Yonkers followed his autobiographical trio Brighton Beach Memoirs, Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound. Critics started to take him seriously as a playwright with these plays for he was writing about his own family's life experiences. Lost in Yonkers is set in 1942 in Yonkers, New York where Grandma Kurnitz (Loraine Shields) and her daughter Bella (Roslyn Cohn) run the family confectionery store and live in a modest apartment upstairs. Now in a stunning production at the GROUP rep, Larry Eisenberg directs a perfectly cast ensemble who make the play shine brightly through October 22. Humor is Simon's best suit.
