BWW Review: SEE HOW THEY RUN at Vagabond Players Confuses and Amuses
by Kristen Price - May 30, 2017

A farce should be full of slamming doors, confusion and missed opportunities. Because of this, you need a stage that's able to accommodate the action and actors that understand exactly what's happening at every point, even if the characters they're playing do not. In the case of SEE HOW THEY RUN playing at the Vagabond Theatre, you have the makings of everything that creates a great farce, even if you don't have the best script. (more...)

BWW Review: ME AND MY GIRL at Shaw Festival
by Michael Rabice - May 28, 2017

A 'ME AND MY GIRL' Not To Be Missed It is infrequent for the theatre god of comedy to shine bright enough to induce glee, but that is what occurred on opening night of the Shaw Festival's utterly charming production of ME AND MY GIRL. An alchemy of sorts has melded a super talented cast with the thoughtfully insightful director. The Shaw Festival has not always had a strong track record of completely successful musicals, but under new Artistic Director Tim Carroll's leadership, it seems as if the tide has turned. Of course, the selection of a musical with British heritage ( a rarity of sorts), fits in perfectly with the Shaw Festival's mandate. (more...)

BWW Interview: Gillian Pensavalle and Patrick Hinds, hosts of TRUE CRIME OBSESSED Podcast
by Jennifer McHugh - Jun 5, 2017

When I was 12 years old, the Homecoming Queen in our small town in Pennsylvania was killed in a drunk driving accident. A few months later, her older brother shot the driver of the car that killed her point blank in the head four times. But did he really do it? Was he covering for his brother? Or his father? Now, 30 years later, this story still haunts our small town and is a topic that is still discussed at holiday dinners and when driving by the murder site. The brother was convicted of third degree murder and sentenced to 20 years, of which, he only served 10 for good behavior. (more...)

BWW Review: A HARMONY BOYS CHRISTMAS Closed This Past Weekend As Part of the Hollywood Fringe
by Don Grigware - Jun 26, 2017

Described as 'an evening of song, dance and holiday cheer in support of the 'Force Feed the World' charity fund', A Harmony Boys Christmas as a musical satire revels in being politically incorrect. It concentrates on traditions like Santa Claus coming down the chimney, crackers - fun toys that are popular with the Brits - and even the birth of the 'Sweet Little Jesus Boy' and tears them all to shreds.

BWW Review: NOISES OFF at Connecticut Repertory Theatre

by Michael Rabice - Jul 7, 2017

There can be great comedy in repetition. Allowing an audience to think they know what is coming next but slipping in an unexpected variation on a theme can throw you for a comedic loop. This premise is the basis for Michael Frayn's rioutously successful 1982 farce, NOISES OFF. The Chautauqua Theater Company is mounting a joyous production in their Bratton Theater that has theatre goers giddy with the onstage silliness. (more...)

BWW Review: MY FAIR LADY at Olney Theatre Center is Just Plain 'Loverly'
by Charles Shubow - Jul 6, 2017

I recall with reverence the illustrated cover of the original cast album of MY FAIR LADY by the acclaimed caricaturist, the late Al Hirschfeld (who has a Broadway theater named in his honor). It featured the author of 'Pygmalion' which MY FAIR LADY is based on, George Bernard Shaw, overlooking a cloud in heaven with puppet strings holding up the two lead characters in the show, Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle, It's a true classic. So was the original cast which opened on Broadway in 1956 and starred Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison and later became a smash movie with Harrison and Audrey Hepburn in 1964. I recall having a reserved seat ticket for the film. (more...)

by Sondra Forsyth - Jul 31, 2017

On the evening of Wednesday, July 26th 2017 at Lincoln Center's Koch Theater, the most exciting moment during the Bolshoi Ballet's performance of choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot's ham-handed retelling of the plot of Shakespeare's rollicking comedy, The Taming of the Shrew, was a false fire alarm that sent many audience members scrambling for the exits. The dancers gamely carried on, as noted later in an excellent curtain speech by Lincoln Center Festival Director Nigel Redden, who congratulated them for dancing “impeccably” in spite of the scare.

by Gil Kaan - Aug 28, 2017

The 1941 ARSENIC AND OLD LACE gets a dusting off from the Odyssey Theatre Ensemble providing a wonderfully expressive vehicle for the acting talents of Sheelagh Cullen and Jacque Lynn Colton as Abby and Martha Brewster, the seemingly harmless and most delightful murderers of their single unattached male boarders. Cullen and Colton totally charm while dithering on ever so casually describing their deadly deeds as calmly as sharing a recipe of elderberry pie. (more...)

New Repertory Theatre takes us for a ride in the wayback machine for the Boston-area premiere of one of Lydia Diamond's earliest plays.

Obehi Janice, Alejandro Simoes, and Maurice Emmanuel Parent make the ride worthwhile. (more...)
