BWW Review: Superb KING LEAR at Avant Bard is Fitting Swan Song for DC Acting Legend Rick Foucheux
by Jeffrey Walker - May 31, 2017

Tom Prewitt, Avant Bard's current artistic director, knew who he wanted to take on this monumental role: Rick Foucheux. A 35-year veteran of stages large and small in the Washington, DC area, Foucheux has played everything from realism to the avant garde; modern and the classics. Capping off his storied career as he is about to leave the limelight to spend time as a grandfather and to travel, Foucheux taking on Lear is a match made in heaven. Effortlessly commanding the stage, Shakespeare's words and the arc of the tragedy seem newly minted in Foucheux's skillful hands. (more...)

BWW Review: Stratford Festival Opens its 65th Season with a Splendid Production of TWELFTH NIGHT
by Lauren Gienow - May 30, 2017

The 65th season of the Stratford Festival officially opened on Monday night with a production of William Shakespeare's TWELFTH NIGHT. Director, Martha Henry has assembled a fabulous group of players and they do not disappoint. Just the thought of Geraint Wyn Davies, Tom Rooney, and Brent Carver sharing comedic scenes together had me rushing to the Festival Theatre to see this play. All three are as fantastic as one could hope for, but everyone else is equally as enchanting in their roles as well. (more...)

BWW Review: KING LEAR Kills at Guthrie Theater
by Karen Bovard - Mar 6, 2017

'Disciplined' may seem an odd word to apply to a production of KING LEAR, a tragedy that is about personal and societal dissolution into madness, both individually and at large. But the current mounting in Minneapolis earns that moniker, both in actorly control and design restraint. The result is a masterful rendering that eschews excess but allows the human relationships to be bared and centered. (more...)

Guest Blog: Writer Mike Akers On Adapting LA STRADA
by Guest Blog: Mike Akers - Jun 13, 2017

La Strada is one of Federico Fellini's most memorable films. It won the inaugural Best Foreign Language Film Oscar and a host of other awards at prestigious festivals all over the world in the Fifties. The story of Gelsomina, a poverty-stricken young woman sold by her mother to Zampano, a brutish itinerant street performer, certainly struck a chord with audiences at the time, and the role of Gelsomina made an international star of Fellini's wife Giulietta Masina.

BWW Review: LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST at Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival
by Joseph Harrison - Jul 16, 2017

"They have measured many a mile to tread a measure with you on this grass." A very appropriate quote from William Shakespeare's comedy LOVE'S LABOUR'S LOST, which is playing through July 30th on the grounds of St. Joseph's University in West Hartford - a performance of the Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival. Appropriate because audiences gather together (on the grass and underneath the beautiful summer sky) on blankets, lawn chairs, and camp chairs to view the outdoor production of the bard's timeless comedy. This experience is not only exciting in terms of the strong production, but also for the unique venue and opportunity to dine/drink al fresco while enjoying a night of theatre. (more...)

BWW Review: LA STRADA, Richmond Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Feb 28, 2017

Federico Fellini's Oscar-winning film La Strada has earned its place as a cinematic classic. As a film, it is a visual feast and so therefore a huge challenge to put on the stage. In a world of extreme deprivation and poverty, a widow sells her daughter, Gelsomina, to travelling strongman Zampano. An erratic and aggressive man, Zampano teaches her to introduce his act and exposes her life on the road. They join a circus, where tightrope-walker The Fool tries to revive Gesolmina's broken spirit. They are expelled as Zampano's violence escalates and the tale turns to tragedy. (more...)
