Hong Kong Repertory Theatre Presents PRIDE
by BWW News Desk - Mar 6, 2019

To drift is to float on top of a liquid, appearing still or moving in the direction of the liquid or wind. The term Gang Piao literally means drifting back and forth in Hong Kong, yet its exact definition is not certain are Gang Piao professionals who came to work in Hong Kong from the Mainland? Or are they students from the Mainland? Or tourists who came to Hong Kong to shop? Pride depicts protagonist Jason's struggles to find a place where he can settled down, despite having good academic qualifications, a job and a marriage in Hong Kong since moving from the Mainland many years ago. He continues to drift directionlessly from one place to another. What has Hong Kong actually given him? What can he establish for himself? Pride is another limit-testing work that challenges the bottom line by emerging playwright Wang Haoran, following his controversial Blast and Red Chamber in the Concrete Forest. The current production is directed by HKRep's Assistant Artistic Director Fung Wai Hang, starring a cast including Wang Wei, Lai Yuk Ching, Lau Shau Ching, Kong Ho Yin and Chan Kiu, running 16-31 March at the Hong Kong Arts Centre Shouson Theatre. Tickets are now available at URBTIX. (more...)

by Brett Burger - Mar 25, 2019

In just over a week, Lyric Arts will open their newest production, Evita, on March 22. This show has been the show I have been most excited for since it was announced last year. Full disclosure, I used to work at Lyric Arts and immediately called Laura, their Artistic and Executive Director, to both congratulate her and beg her to let me play Eva.

BWW Review: Seattle Public Theater's Intense DRY LAND Drowns in Gratuitousness
by Jay Irwin - Mar 25, 2019

The word that springs to mind when I think of Seattle Public Theater's current production of Ruby Rae Spiegel's "Dry Land" is "gratuitous". That's the first thing I think of. Not "intense" or "gripping" as the climactic scene was, or "raw" or "honest" as much of the dialog between the young girls felt, but "gratuitous" as all of that is overshadowed by a production that felt the need to, I don't know, shock or fill time? The play is already shocking, and the filler just diluted that shock, so I am only left with "gratuitous". (more...)

BWW Review: WE WILL NOT BE SILENT at Taproot Theatre
by Kelly Rogers Flynt - Mar 23, 2019

Without bells and whistles or fanfare, this show focuses on the heart of the matter. When the laws of the land conflict with what you believe to be right, how will you respond? When the stakes are high, how much are you willing to dare? (more...)

BWW Review: JOHN & JEN Touches Hearts at Imagine Performing Arts
by Vicki Trask - Mar 19, 2019

John & Jen is not a musical I had a lot of (re: any) familiarity with. It's a 1996 Off-Broadway musical from the mind of Andrew Lippa and Tom Greenwald that never quite reached the same notoriety as some of their other works. But, in the words of director Darryl Lindenbach, this show is a labor of love. 23 years after directing the Canadian Premiere of this two-hander musical, Lindenbach is back to bring these siblings to the modern Calgary stage.

Review: FIFTY: WORDS Takes a Brutally Honest Look at What it Takes to Make any Partnership Worth Saving
by Shari Barrett - Mar 18, 2019

The Battle of the Sexes rages on during the Los Angeles premiere of FIFTY: WORDS by Michael Weller at the Lounge Theatre in Hollywood, featuring the remarkable actors Olga Konstantulakis and Eric Larson, directed to perfection by Shane Stevens. Perhaps because the two characters' verbal and emotional interactions with each other so honestly reflect exactly what goes on in my own relationship that I felt completely drawn in, often nodding with the realization that often two such differing outlooks on life cannot possibly find a central meeting ground that works for both people. And yet, we keep trying. (more...)
