BWW Review: The Judson Theatre Company's LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE Celebrates Sisterhood and Unity
by Lauren Van Hemert - Oct 27, 2018

LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE by Nora Ephron and Delia Ephron explores the complex relationships women have with their shoes, purses, bras, weight, Madonna, their sisters, and their mothers. Based on the book by Ilene Beckerman, the play opened off-Broadway at the Westside Theater in 2009 after a limited run of staged readings to benefit Dress for Success. It closed The Judson Theatre Company's seventh season last week. The parade of well-known actresses who've performed in LOVE, LOSS, AND WHAT I WORE reads like a who's who and includes Jane Lynch, Carol Kane, Brooke Shields, Rosie O'Donnell, Tyne Daly, Samantha Bee, Parker Posey, and Kristin Wiig. The Judson Theatre's cast too featured some well-known names, including two-time Emmy Award-winner Sally Struthers, who previously starred in the show at The Geffen Playhouse, Kim Coles, who is best known for her role on 'Living Single,' and stage veteran Joyce Reehling. Rounding out the cast were newcomers Ashley Brooke and Olivia Rose Barresi. (more...)

BWW Review: Great Performances Abound in THE ADDAMS FAMILY
by Frank Benge - Oct 25, 2018

The characters in The Addams Family were created by American cartoonist Charles Addams. The characters traditionally include Gomez and Morticia Addams, their children Wednesday and Pugsley, close family members Uncle Fester and Grandmama, their butler Lurch, the disembodied hand Thing, and Gomez's Cousin Itt. The characters are a satirical inversion of the ideal American family: odd, wealthy, macabre and unaware that other people find them, at the very least, bizarre. They originally appeared as single-panel cartoons, about half of which were originally published in The New Yorker between their debut in 1938 and Charles Addams' death in 1988. They've been adapted to multiple forms of media: television, both live action and animated, and a series of films. The most recent adaptation is the musical THE ADDAMS FAMILY with a book by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Music & Lyrics by Andrew Lippa. (more...)

When describing Hat Trick's brilliantly twisted production of Mindgame, the only thought that came to me as The Lights faded to black was "what the" and I word I cannot write in print.

BWW Review: FRANKENSTEIN at StageOne Family Theatre
by Keith Waits - Nov 2, 2018

I'm not sure how many have read Mary Shelley's classic novel, so familiar is the creature from countless generations of the story that have moved further and further from the source. It seems likely that there might be a good number of people who have never read or seen any of these, and only know the Frankenstein 'monster' as a cartoonish icon. But it is in the theatre that we tend to find iterations that hew closer to the original tale. (more...)

BWW Review: Gettysburg Community Theatre Penguin Project's THE WIZARD OF OZ at the Eichelberger Performing Arts Center
by Andrea Stephenson - Nov 18, 2018

It's an unique experience to be a reviewer. We're tasked with having an understanding of theatre and performance and to be able to express what we experience at a variety of different shows to an audience of readers who may have seen the show or may be deciding whether or not to see the show. As a reviewer for many community theatres in the area, I see my role as many-faceted. On one hand, I'm a reviewer, and a review, to be a true review, necessarily includes some level of critique. I feel a responsibility to my readers to give them an idea of what they might expect if they see the show. On the other hand, as a supporter of the arts and a frequent director and performer myself, my personal goal is to promote the arts, to promote the theatres in our area, to lift up the many volunteers who do such amazing work. So, I try to frame my writing from these various points of view. (more...)

by Jimin Lee - Nov 17, 2018

"Nora! Nora! Empty. She is gone. The most wonderful thing of all?" With the last words of Helmer, the roof set began to descend, rapidly decreasing the space of the stage. After The Lights were turned off and I was completely left in the darkness, thousands of thoughts began to come upon me. 'Wow…What have I just watched?' With that question in my mind, I watched as the actors reappeared on stage to take their bow. The incredible mind-blowing show, A DOLL'S HOUSE plays at Seoul Arts Center CJ Towol Theater until November 25th. (more...)

BWW Review: BORDERLINE at Ottawa's National Arts Centre - Company Wang Ramirez Experiment with Dance Fusion and Gravity in a Soaring Production
by Courtney Castelino - Nov 10, 2018

As we wait for the show to begin, a large metal cube, open on three sides, hangs suspended over the stage, gently turning. As The Lights dim, the cube is moved to a corner of the stage closest to the audience. Two figures appear on stage and move as if they are running towards the cube, first slowly, then with increasing desperation. Each time they approach the cube, they are jerked back as if by an unseen force (which, in reality, comes from a rigging system attached to each dancer with a harness). In today's political climate, given the title of the production, as well as the fact that Company Wang Ramirez are from Europe, the imagery evokes the sense of escaping from some dark force to a sanctuary but being thwarted at every turn. Ultimately, a man clad in black appears and breaks one dancer free, while the other is banished into the darkness. (more...)
