by Jeffrey Ellis - May 19, 2017

GOOD MORNING, THEATERATI! Down in the right-hand corner of my computer screen, it tells me that its Friday, May 19 - which means that Memorial Day Weekend is just a week away! - how in the world did we make it from New Year's Day to Memorial Day in what seems to me to be like 15 minutes? When you figure that out, please give me a heads-up so I can better prepare for Christmas shopping! And that, of course, has me wondering what shows we'll be seeing during the next holiday season which, in turn, prompts me to ask the musical question: What's your favorite Christmas or holiday-themed stage offering?

BWW Interview: Theatre Life with Corey Mach
by Elliot Lanes - Mar 7, 2017

Today's subject Corey Mach is currently living his theatre life as part of a play that deals with a true “legend” of pop music. I'm referring to that off-pitch sensation Mrs. Miller. Corey Mach portrays her accompanist Simon Bock in Mrs.Miller Does her Thing, which is now playing at Signature Theatre in Arlington, Virginia through March 26th. (more...)

BWW Review: BUS STOP at Jewel Box Theatre is a Trip Worth Taking
by Robert Barossi - Mar 6, 2017

Let's face it, long bus rides can be an at-times uncomfortable and awkward journey. The seats are not always conducive to comfort and if there are lots of people, it's going to get cramped. But, as the saying goes, it's not about the journey, it's about the destination, and while the ride might be bumpy, getting to our destination is often rewarding and exciting. William Inge's Bus Stop, now playing at Jewel Box Theatre, is a bit like a long bus journey. The ride might have its ups and downs, but it's the destination, the pay-off, that makes it a journey well worth taking. (more...)

'Howard Hodgkin: Absent Friends' On Display at National Portrait Gallery
by BWW News Desk - Mar 22, 2017

Howard Hodgkin: Absent Friends is the first ever exhibition devoted to the portraits of the great British painter Howard Hodgkin, who died earlier this month at the age of 84. The exhibition shows the breadth and nature of Hodgkin's long-standing engagement with portraiture, an important aspect of his work that has been largely overlooked because his work appears abstract. With over 50 works from collections around the world and dating from 1949 to the present, the exhibition traces the development of Hodgkin's portraits, exploring his important contribution to our understanding of what constitutes a portrait and examining key themes within the artist's work: colour, memory, emotion and imagination.

BWW Review: Forum Theatre celebrates #NASTYWOMENREP
by Keith Tittermary - Mar 21, 2017

“Men are like weapons. Women are like wounds.” That is a poignant line and an apt summation of the first part of Forum Theatre's #NastyWomen ethos. The first piece in this horrifying, yet deeply moving, work is Monica Byrne's What Every Girl Should Know, which takes place in 1914 and follows four teen girls in a New York reformatory. (more...)

BWW Review: Elevator Repair Service's THE SELECT: THE SUN ALSO RISES an Exuberant Celebration of Hemingway's Classic
by Andrew White - Mar 2, 2017

Elevator Repair Service, a New York company with a decided literary turn, has brought its lengthy but satisfying staging of Hemingway's first novel, 'The Sun Also Rises,' to Shakespeare Theatre Company's Landsburgh stage for a healthy Washington run. For Hemingway fans, this is reason enough to make a pilgrimage downtown; for theatre enthusiasts, even those who wouldn't normally touch Hemingway with a 10-foot-pole, the sheer exuberance and creativity of the ensemble should be a huge draw.

BWW Review: The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts Asks the Musical Question, 'SHALL WE DANCE?'
by Gary Laird - Mar 16, 2017

The latest iteration of the production on tour is crafted with care and performed with verve. It's an 'old-fashioned' Broadway staple, and it never wears out its welcome. It unabashedly tugs at the heartstrings, tickles the funny bone and jerks the tears, just as it did when it opened 66 years ago this month. Few musicals achieve this kind of longevity, and more than a few of those are from the pens of Rodgers and Hammerstein. (more...)

by Bonnie Lynn Wagner - Mar 16, 2017

A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES by Sarah J. Maas is one of my all-time favorite retellings of Beauty and the Beast. It's also an original, immersive fantasy! (more...)

by Michael Rabice - Jun 9, 2017

A frothy Noel Coward evening on a warm June night sounds like perfect programming. Buffalo's Irish Classical Theatre is presenting his light hearted romp HAY FEVER with mixed results, at best. Although considered one of Coward's lesser works, HAY FEVER has achieved a respectable position in the theatre canon, mostly in part to it's unique opportunities to portray lovably odd characters.

BWW Review: THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE, Churchill Theatre, Bromley
by Vikki Jane Vile - Jun 7, 2017

This take on the Hollywood classic Thoroughly Modern Millie last played Broadway back in 2002. However, regardless of the casts plucky efforts to inject some New York panache to proceedings, 'Millie' emerges as a particularly poor choice for revisiting in 2017. The story features threads that sit uncomfortably in the present day. Mrs Meers with her chopstick clad hair and mock Chinese accent is amusing for ten minutes but after a couple of scenes just seems plain racist. Millie's chunk of the plot hangs on the idea that she needs to find a rich man to marry to get on in life. Where do I even start with that one? (more...)

BWW Review: 1984 is Doubleplusungood at Obsidian Theater
by Brett Cullum - Jun 3, 2017

It's certainly a relevant piece for our time, and I applaud the intention of bringing it to life in this era of political debate and mistrust of the media. But if you're going to dig this one up then have the nerve to make it feel dangerously close to the outside world. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jun 12, 2017

PARADISE – consisting of the Portland-by-way-of-Chicago husband/wife team of guitarist/vocalist Steven Denekas and vocalist/keyboardist Tamar Berk – have fashioned a loving homage to the classic rock opera in their third album, Dawn of Paradise, a double-vinyl LP which gleefully references the likes of The Who's Tommy, Pink Floyd's The Wall, David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust, Yes' Tales of Topographic Oceans and even such recent efforts as Green Day's American Idiot.  (more...)

BWW Review: SAND IN THE SANDWICHES, Theatre Royal Haymarket
by Cindy Marcolina - Jun 1, 2017

BWW Review: THE CHANGELING at the Stratford Festival is Disturbing and Exhilarating
by Lauren Gienow - Jul 4, 2017

This season at the Stratford Festival has proven to be a stellar one, and Jackie Maxwell's production of Thomas Middleton and William Rowley's THE CHANGELING on the Tom Patterson Theatre stage is no exception. The questionable morals and values of the characters, and the intense relationships between certain characters leave the audience feeling uncomfortable (as was likely intended by the playwrights) but the performances by the members of the company and the overall impact of the production itself, leaves the audience feeling exhilarated.

BWW Review: THE AMEN CORNER at Pyramid Theatre Company
by Nolan Boggess - Jul 31, 2017

Redemption is on the mind in Pyramid Theatre Company's The Amen Corner, the classic James Baldwin show that completes Pyramid's summer season. Baldwin's play often rests on questions concerning redemption, sacrifice, and spirituality making the show a fitting choice for Pyramid after two successful seasons in Des Moines. While this production is able to bring spirit and liveliness through its passionate performances, often times the delivery gets lost in Baldwin's layered script and comes across as plain confusing.

BWW Review: Thunder Rumbles in Paul Slabolepszy's SUDDENLY THE STORM at the Baxter Theatre
by David Fick - Jul 2, 2017

The Market Theatre production of Paul Slabolepszy's SUDDENLY THE STORM is currently in the middle of its Cape Town season at the Baxter Theatre.

BBW Review: THE NORMAL HEART Highlights a community's struggle at The City Theatre
by Amy Bradley - Jul 13, 2017

The City Theatre Company presents Larry Kramer's THE NORMAL HEART, with compassion and care to the tragic subject matter. This mostly autobiographical tale from Kramer, shines a light on the HIV crisis that hit the gay community in New York City in the early eighties. With the horrifying illness gaining steam, and compounded by little to no cooperation from the community at large, the newly liberated 'gay movement' was stonewalled and devastated by the effects of the AIDS virus. To tell the story of his own experience during this plague, Larry Kramer puts his experiences to paper to share the heart-wrenching realities many homosexual communities faced during this time. At the helm of the activism is an outspoken, abrasive crusader Ned Weeks (a self-reflection of Larry Kramer). THE NORMAL HEART begins in a hospital waiting room with a few young men trading quips back and forth that all will be well. Within minutes, we discover all is not well, and the true villain of the show, the HIV virus, is about to take center stage in these happy young men's lives. Weeks is adamant about finding help for his crusade and passionately tells his fellow peers to 'button it up' for the time being. The timeline of the show follows the rising death toll of the AIDS virus from all over the world. As events escalate, Ned's personal relationships fall victim to his passionate and outlandish tactics in seeking support for their cause. The reflection and passion written by Kramer is nothing shy of breath-taking. With an emphasis on awareness and education, THE NORMAL HEART stays relevant and interesting for the present-day theatre-goer. (more...)

BWW Review: TREVOR Monkeys Around at Catastrophic Theatre
by Brett Cullum - Feb 28, 2017

TREVOR is what the Catastrophic Theatre does best - funny and provocative work that has much to say about the human condition.

BWW Review: TWELFTH NIGHT, National Theatre
by Marianka Swain - Feb 23, 2017

Against the backdrop of a decaying home in middle-of-nowhere country, the air is imbued with history and spirits walk the earth.

by Chris Gibson - Apr 3, 2017

Magicians have always found a home on stage, whether it was during vaudeville's heyday or on Broadway, and THE ILLUSIONISTS is proof that this association is still going strong (of course, the art of magic goes back many centuries, long before either existed). I have to confess that I've never actually seen any magician perform live. Most of my experience has been limited to watching various acts perform on television over the years. But, when you watch them on TV the more skeptical viewer is always aware that even though a particular stunt may seem phenomenal, there's that sense that maybe this was edited or achieved through camera trickery. That's not necessarily a fair assumption, but it's one I think a lot of people share. After having witnessed THE ILLUSIONISTS in person I find myself at a loss to explain how most of their illusions were created. And that's what makes this show so amazing. Their recent performance at the Fox Theatre was a truly wondrous and amusing experience that had me pondering over and over afterwards: "Just how did they do that?" (more...)
