Photo Flash: Main Street Theater Presents DADDY LONG LEGS
by BWW News Desk - May 30, 2018

Main Street Theater presents the Regional Premiere of Daddy Long Legs based on the classic novel by Jean Webster and featuring music and lyrics by Tony Award-nominated composer/lyricist, Paul Gordon (Jane Eyre), and Tony-winning librettist/director, John Caird (Les Miserables).  "This show has the same romantic appeal that draws me to stories like Little Women and Anne of Green Gables as well as romantic period pieces like Downton Abbey and The Forsythe Saga," shares director Andrew Ruthven. "This love story is certainly a 'Rags to riches' tale, but the heart of Daddy Long Legs is a young woman coming into her own.  The show is punctuated by Jean Webster's very strong feminist stance.  She pulls no punches in Jerusha's beliefs in votes for women, equality of the sexes, and the battle of sexes."

BWW Review: THE WILL ROGERS FOLLIES at Goodspeed Opera House
by Joseph Harrison - May 13, 2018

Every once in a while, a person is born who is destined to influence the world in ways yet to be seen. Sometimes these men and women are born into a position of power, such as a king or queen, and other times they do whatever it takes to become great and powerful business or political leaders on the backs of others. But once in a blue moon there comes a man who gains fortune and fame for simply being someone who people connect with, who speaks the truth, and who does his best to make the world a better place than he left it. One such man is the sage from Oologah ,Oklahoma, William Penn Adair Rogers. As time passes, fewer and fewer people are alive who had first-hand experience reading Will Rogers' column, listening to him on the radio, or seeing his films. It is for that reason, that we are lucky a show like THE WILL ROGERS FOLLIES exists, and even luckier that Goodspeed Musicals chose it for the opening production of its 2018 season. Telling his life story over the course of a Ziegfeld follies extravaganza (another thing that many today have no memory of), this dazzling, colorful, and heartwarming musical takes audiences on a journey from Rags to riches with America's "Cowboy Philosopher".

BWW Previews: COOKIN' AT THE COOKERY: THE MUSIC AND TIMES OF ALBERTA HUNTER at Ensemble Theatre Company
by Maggie Yates - Jun 4, 2018

This music-infused interpretation of the Alberta Hunter's life is a true American Rags-to-riches success story. Hunter, a jazz and blues singer, achieved critical and commercial acclaim in the 1920s-50s. In the late 1950s, she abruptly abandoned music to become a nurse. Several decades later, Hunter retired from nursing and returned to the stage for a two-week engagement at renowned New York blues bar, The Cookery. At age 82, this jazz legend rekindled the public's love for her powerful voice and spirit-her two-week stint at the Greenwich Village nightclub stretched into a multi-year, late-in-life comeback.

BWW Review: THE JACKIE WILSON STORY Brings Mr. Excitement Back to Life Using Cutting Edge Holographic 3D Technology
by Shari Barrett - Jul 18, 2018

Due to Wilson's fervor when performing, with his dynamic dance moves, impassioned singing and impeccable dress, he was soon christened 'Mr. Excitement,' a title Wilson would keep for the remainder of his career. His live performances consisted of knee-drops, splits, spins, back-flips, one-footed across-the-floor slides, removing his tie and jacket and throwing them off the stage, and a great deal of basic boxing steps, advance and retreat shuffling, and one of his favorite routines, getting women in the audience to come up to the stage and kiss him. In fact, the only thing Wilson loved more than music, it seems, was women, many of whom you will meet during several interviews about his life included in THE JACKIE WILSON STORY. (more...)
