BWW Review: 84 CHARING CROSS ROAD, Richmond Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Jun 12, 2018

In an age of Instant Messenger, Snapchat and Twitter, many of us may have never experienced the quiet thrill of receiving a handwritten, personal letter. 84 Charing Cross Road is James Roose-Evans' adaptation of Helene Hanff's charming and very personal book of letters. It goes back to a time when people not only hand wrote correspondence, but had to buy their books from a physical bookshop, rather than clicking to purchase them online. The story is an account of the New York playwright's own twenty-year relationship with the manager of Marks & Co. bookshop, conducted entirely through letters. (more...)

VIDEO: Preview THE FORCE OF THINGS Part Of Mostly Mozart At Lincoln Center!
by BWW News Desk - Jul 5, 2018

How do we bear witness to a thing our bodies seem built to ignore? In Ashley Fure's immersive music-theater piece, created with her architect brother Adam Fure and the International Contemporary Ensemble, 24 subwoofer speakers emit sound too low for humans to hear, creating a subsonic sense of ecological anxiety that Ripples around the audience. Under a dense canopy of sculpted matter, tones are "made tactile, objects made audible, noise made beautiful" (New York Times). Drama is steered away from the human, time is stretched to a geologic scale, and seven live performers act as wordless harbingers of a consciousness not limited to the living. (more...)

When the smoke cleared there were 28 lives lost on that cold December day in Newtown, CT.
