A Broadway Salute to Richard Rodgers on His 100th Birthday


BWW Review: THE PAJAMA GAME at Arena Stage
by Elliot Lanes - Nov 9, 2017

Some musicals from the golden age of Broadway are done to death. Let's face it, how many productions of Guys and Dolls and Fiddler on the Roof can you take? Anytime a theater chooses to produce a show that isn't seen as often as the aforementioned ones I get very excited. When they are presented well, my musical theater geekiness goes into overdrive. Arena Stage has put my geekiness into overdrive with its current production of the 1954 tuner The Pajama Game. With the exception of a production at Roundabout Theatre Company a few years back, this show really isn't performed very often professionally anymore. (more...)

The Rewards Of Delivering Meals To Seniors -- Meals On Wheels America And The Ad Council Focus On The Fulfillment Volunteers Get When They Give
by BWW News Desk - Mar 25, 2018

Today in the U.S., ten million seniors face the threat of hunger, and millions more live alone in isolation. Meals on Wheels already serves over two million homebound seniors annually, though with the senior population expected to double by 2050, there is an escalating need for a new wave of volunteers to step up to help seniors in their communities. That's why Meals on Wheels America and the Ad Council today are kicking off a new chapter of their successful volunteer recruitment initiative, "America, Let's Do Lunch"(AmericaLetsDoLunch.org). Beyond the impact of a warm meal and a friendly smile to those served, the new PSAs turn the spotlight on the meaningful bonds that can develop between volunteers and homebound seniors, many of whom face isolation and loneliness.

BWW Review: AVIGNON THEATRE FESTIVAL Presents TARTIUFAS Directed By OSKARAS KORSUNOVAS
by Wesley Doucette - Jul 23, 2018

An actor once vented to me after a performance that the cast 'had Something Good, but the director screwed it up by trying to make it something important.' The word 'screwed' is my addition. So too is the fatal flaw of Oskaras Korsunovas's Tartiufas, now in performance in the Avignon Theatre Festival's Opera Confluence. The world is glowing in a post-baroque kitsch. The actors are superbly game, throwing themselves into daring feats of theatrical acrobatics. Yet, politically overcompensating, Tartiufas repeatedly doesn't stick the landing. (more...)

In this case, it almost feels like a kind of ceremony-a celebration of this land and a display of mourning for what happened here in the desert 75 years ago. (more...)
