BWW Review: LES MISERABLES at The Orpheum
by Chris Miritello - Nov 30, 2018

There is probably little to say or write about Les Miserables that has not already been said or written. Claude-Michel Schonberg's epic musical, based on Victor Hugo's equally epic 1862 novel, first captured audiences' imaginations as a concept piece in France in 1980. Since the reimagined English language version starring Colm Wilkinson and Patti LuPone premiered in London in 1985, productions, special concert events and revivals have sprung up throughout the world, including on Broadway, where the show's original run lasted over 16 years and it has twice been revived. Les Miserables has also been adapted for film, including the 2012 musical version, which starred the likes of Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Eddie Redmayne, and garnered Anne Hathaway an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Indeed, after more than 30 years as part of our cultural lexicon, Les Miserables remains a musical theater juggernaut, whose enduring themes of redemption, loyalty and love, incredible score and sheer longevity imbue it with an unmatched sense of gravitas.

Mister Tom Musick's Free EP DON'T MIND THE DUST Out 11/30, Final 2018 Show 11/29
by BWW News Desk - Nov 29, 2018

Mister Tom Musick is touched by your concern and consternation, and he appreciates your morbid fascination, but there's nothing to be done for him now. The bloom is off the rose, the hour late. He's been licked by the flames of love; he's been Merloted, Bordeauxed and Shirazzled. The bright dreams of his youth have burned away. And he's the first to admit that he's got no gallant horse to ride; no hopes or ropes to fling you. (more...)

Among the traditions in their little village of Anatevka, the matchmaker arranges a match between a boy and a girl, and the father must approve the arranged marriage.

LA GIOCONDA Comes to La Monnaie
by BWW News Desk - Jan 7, 2019

Amilcare Ponchielli's opera La Gioconda (no link whatsoever with the painting in the Louvre) is one of those works too rarely represented despite its obvious qualities. Once the most successful opera between Verdi's Aida (1871) and Otello (1887), it is now considered a work stylistically so heterogeneous and both vocally and scenically so demanding that few opera houses try their hand at it. La Monnaie takes on the challenge and invites conductor Paolo Carignani and stage director Olivier Py to revive the whole grand opera behind 'The Dance of the Hours'. (more...)

BWW Review: A PERMANENT IMAGE Is A Poignant Yet Eye-Opening View On Death
by Ilana Lifshitz - Jan 16, 2019

I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into Friday night when I went and saw the opening night of A PERMANENT IMAGE (written by Samuel D. Hunter) at Skiptown Playhouse in Hollywood. I read the small synopsis I found online where it said, 'A PERMANENT IMAGE is a darkly comedic look at fraught family dynamics that dares to ask the question, 'Can death actually bring life together?'' Mind you, I had realized 12 hours prior to curtain it was the fifth anniversary of my grandmother's death. 'Was this the best thing sit through?' I asked myself. And you know what? The play may have started off a bit rocky but it blossomed into a beautiful representation of death. (more...)

BWW Review: IN THE BLOOD at Aux Dog Theatre

BWW Review: Studio Tenn's Holiday Season Offering of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

Before Broadway comes calling for Hatty Ryan King, the young Nashville actress with an enviable resume (the Lipscomb University sophomore is a Spotlight Award winner, was a finalist for The Jimmy Award, has worked with theater companies both community-oriented and professional and has proven herself a capable leading player along the way), you might want to get your tickets to see her onstage in Studio Tenn's ambitious, if woefully uneven, holiday season offering of Beauty and The Beast. In a role that could have been written for her, King shines as Belle, the ambitious and eager to learn and to embrace change young woman who is the heroine of the musical which features a score by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice and a book by Linda Woolverton.

BWW Review: Cumberland County Playhouse Sends SANDERS FAMILY Off With Heartfelt Emotion
by Jeffrey Ellis - Dec 13, 2018

Growing up in a small Southern town with fewer than 1,000 people, the prevalent thoughts tend to be centered on how to get out of that stifling, archly conservative community, in order to search for the proverbial greener pastures and to find like-minded people who will make you feel more "at home" with yourself and in your own skin. While that may well be the honest-to-God true story of my youth, nonetheless it always startles me when my emotions are stirred up by a stage musical set in the years long before my birth, with a show that fairly reverberates with the heart and soul, memories and nostalgia usually associated with a trip back home.
