BWW Interview: Marisol Montalvo and Jeff Roberson Open Up About the World of Opera and Their Show MAD SCENE Coming to Broadway at NOCCA
by Heidi Scheuermann - Oct 30, 2018

Opera isn't my go-to art form, I'll admit it.  In fact, I don't know many people who truly appreciate opera music nor do they understand what it actually takes to become a successful opera singer.  It's an art that often goes unnoticed because of the stereotypes that it is long, boring, difficult to understand, unrelatable, and only for old, rich people.  But if music is a universal language, and I truly believe this to be true, then why do we insist that we cannot understand and then listen to all forms of music except for this one?  I recently had the honor of speaking with two artists who are radically trying to change the scene, and make opera music accessible to everyone.

BWW Review: HENRY V at Hartford Stage
by Joseph Harrison - Oct 27, 2018

In Shakespeare's day his plays served multiple purposes. In some cases, they created an escape for the people to forget their troubles and laugh or revel with and through the characters on stage. In others, the stories served as cautionary tales that made audiences think about their own lives through the lens of the troubles portrayed. Yet it was Shakespeare's history plays that aimed to take a pivotal moment in history and not only bring it to life for the audience to witness (and hopefully understand better), but to ground those stories in the present and allow those in attendance (and possibly those in power) to learn from the mistakes of the past. Thus, is the case with HENRY V, the current production being mounted at Hartford Stage. (more...)

BWW Review: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at Murfreesboro Center For The Arts
by Payton McCarthy - Nov 4, 2018

When one hears the name, William Shakespeare, one often thinks of tragic lovers, murderous revenge, or tormented royals. If you have not yet become a converted worshipper of The Great Bard, you may even dread the idea of sitting through what you may expect to be hours worth of old, confusing language which is beyond hope of translation, and opt to take a nap instead. Well, whatever expectations you may have from the timeless theatrical master's material, you may leave them at the steps of the Center for the Arts as you enter the fantastical and delightfully entertaining world of A Midsummer Night's Dream. While this story is similar to the classic Romeo and Juliet tale through its introduction of the two star crossed lovers which the show follows, the magical forest on the outskirts of Athens (or, as the Center's production depicts, a world inspired by 1920's New York) is anything but reminiscent of fair Verona or its tragic occurrences when civil blood made civil hands unclean.
