In a time when immigrants and artists are at the frontline of social cause, such live theater artworks as Somehow We End Up Here, Again directed by Georgina Bates in collaboration with journalist Jihii Jolly and documentarian Diana Diroy have the power to provoke movement, not only from dance artists, but from the greater society in solidarity with those individuals and nations whose movements are politicized.

BWW Review: SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE at Cotuit Center For The Arts
by Heather Roberts - Jul 17, 2017

Sunday in the Park with George is a musical about the "art of making art" and two artists' journeys of filling in a blank canvas. It tells the story of George, a fictionalized version of the real George Seurat, and the creation of his famous painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," and his great-grandson, who is also named George, and his struggle to create something meaningful and new. With a book by James Lapine and music by Stephen Sondheim, it is a musical experience one will not forget. The original Broadway Production opened in1984 at the Booth Theater, and went on to win two Tony Awards, eight Drama Desk Awards, and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1985. It's appropriate, then, to produce this show in a space that is surrounded by art. (more...)

BWW Review: TAKING LEAVE at Oyster Mill Playhouse
by Allison Rambler - Aug 16, 2017

Oyster Mill Playhouse in Camp Hill, PA, is perhaps known for their ability to bring plays previously lacking in recognition back into the public eye.

With their current production of TAKING LEAVE, Oyster Mill Playhouse once again breathes life into a show that may have otherwise slipped through the cracks. (more...)
