BWW Review: ArtsWest's THE WHO AND THE WHAT Doesn't Connect with the Who or the What
by Jay Irwin - Sep 8, 2017

Playwright Ayad Akhtar is one of the darlings of contemporary theater with his Pulitzer Prize winning play "Disgraced" as well as his acclaimed "The Invisible Hand" (my favorite of his) getting production after production around the world. He manages to take on seriously hot button topics and expose them with rich and engaging characters and his "The Who and the What", currently playing at ArtsWest and co-produced with Pratidhwani, is no exception. But his shows are by no means bulletproof. These characters need to be performed with engagement so they really connect with the issues and each other and as a result with the audience and that's where the ArtsWest production fails. They don't fail completely but enough that what could have been a searing social-political family drama comes across like a tepid sit-com. (more...)

BWW Review: ANGELS IN AMERICA an Epic Pilgrimage For Us All at fortyfive Downstairs
by Brodie Paparella - Sep 8, 2017

Some argue it is the epic play of our generation, an iconoclast of politics, existentialism and the last health crisis to impact the modern world indiscriminate of race, class or religion. Tony Kushner's opus Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes premiered in 1991 and opened on Broadway in 1993. It became a cult classic: turned into a miniseries and several highly successful remounts, the latest of which is being raved about as you read this; the National Theatre in London's production starring Hollywood hero and homo-controversy-courting treasure Andrew Garfield.

BWW Review: THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME at Downtown Cabaret Theatre
by Sean Fallon - Sep 24, 2017

A spectacular performance with first rate acting, singing, directing, choreography, and lighting brings a classic story to the stage, a story that touches on the equal humanity of all people, and the call to recognize the inherent worth and dignity of every one of God's children, demonstrating that truth by treating each other with love and decency.

Industry Editor Exclusive: The Rise and Fall of Cirque du Soleil on Broadway
by Cara Joy David, Industry Editor - Sep 20, 2017

The early success of Disney on Broadway led other successful entertainment companies to believe that conquering the Great White Way possibly was not that hard. But, as Warner Bros' first foray into the lead producing game, LESTAT, proved, it's not as easy as opening and tossing some money at marketing. And now, after a sole Broadway show, PARAMOUR, Cirque du Soleil has essentially shuttered its theatrical division, Cirque du Soleil Theatrical. A spokesperson for Cirque confirmed that former head Scott Zeiger is no longer with the company. (more...)

BWW Review: The Story of THE KOMAGATA MARU INCIDENT Gets Lost in this Underwhelming Production at the Stratford Festival
by Lauren Gienow - Sep 20, 2017

In 1914, hundreds of British subjects of the Sikh faith were not allowed off of the boat they traveled to Canada on, and denied entry at the Vancouver harbour based on xenophobia and racist immigration policies. This story of the people aboard the Komagata Maru is an important part of Canadian history to be remembered and an important story to tell. The story is told on stage this season at the Stratford Festival in THE KOMAGATA MARU INCIDENT written by Sharon Pollock and directed by Keira Loughran. Unfortunately, the choices made in the way the story is told, cause the power of its message to not resonate nearly as much as it should be resonating at a time when it is so incredibly relevant in society.

BWW Review: Village's INTO THE WOODS Has Moments in the Woods but No Connections
by Jay Irwin - Sep 16, 2017

I'll admit, Dear Readers, that when I saw the cast list for Village Theatre's current production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's classic Into the Woods I was quite excited. It was (and is) quite a list of powerhouse talent and not the usual suspects for a Village show. But Sondheim's show, as much as it's done by every professional house, community theater, or school is by no means a bulletproof show and something egregious must have happened (or didn't happen) between then and now as the production I saw last night, while technically good with well sung songs lacked any kind of emotional resonance, heart, stakes, or even connection between the characters. And for a show like this, pretty singing is not enough. (more...)

BWW Review: Charming Meta Journey with KING OF THE YEES at ACT
by Jay Irwin - Sep 15, 2017

It's a world we may not know much about, that of old school Chinatown, with their family associations and insider customs. Hell, Lauren Yee grew up in this world and even she seems to be cut off from it and her Father Larry Yee runs the Yee Family Association. But that's The Point of her play King of the Yees currently playing at ACT. Bur before you think this is another one of those dreadful family therapy on stage shows (and you know how I loathe those, Dear Readers) the show, with its quick witty dialog goes to a delightful meta and eventually metaphysical place making it an absolute joy.

by BWW News Desk - Sep 15, 2017

The Stage's 35th theatrical season is a benchmark of the region's live professional theater King said .a celebration we could not have realized without the tremendous patronage we continually experience.

BWW Review: A Beautifully-Acted Tragedy Of Ideas: SALLY McCOY at Cohesion Theatre
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Sep 15, 2017

Sally, as realized by Katherine Vary, is amazing to watch, as she constantly calculates what tactic, rhetorical, pugilistic, or personal, to employ next. When her bag of tricks appears empty to us, and apparently empty to her for a moment, she keeps coming up with one more and you can see her own delight and relief at her creativity as she yet again digs up something else.
