BWW Reviews: Wilbury Group Lights Up the Stage with High-Energy DETROIT by Robert Barossi - Sep 24, 2013

In terms of longevity and legacy, The Wilbury Group is still one of the newest kids on the block in the Rhode Island theater community. Founded only three years ago, in 2010, they have been growing quickly, moving last season into a new space where they have settled in very nicely. Along with finding their home as far as the physical space is concerned, they also have begun to find their groove, artistically and technically. If the first play of this season is any indication, they are ready for another big growth spurt and area audiences are in for some exciting, riveting works of theater. Detroit is a play that begins with a simple enough premise. A couple living in an upper middle-class suburb have invited their new neighbors over for a barbecue. The suburb could be just outside of the titular city or it could be anywhere in the United States. Middle-aged and seemingly well-off, the first couple are either the picture of suburban harmony or they are trying very hard to fake it. The other couple, younger and definitely lower in class, are just recently out of rehab and everything about them indicates a struggle and desire to make their lives work, if they can only figure out how.

BWW Reviews: EVITA, Dominion Theatre, September 22 2014 by Carrie Dunn - Sep 23, 2014

It seems odd to go to the Dominion Theatre and not see that giant golden statue of Freddie Mercury looking down on you. After this limited run of Evita, one wonders if they'll use the space to honour Madalena Alberto, who gives a simply astonishing performance as Eva Peron.

Kyle Banks, who could be seen in the touring and Broadway casts of The Lion King and more, is not only a talented performer, but a changemaker and philanthropist at the helm of multiple forward-thinking organizations. Taking this Broadway season off, Banks has put his focus on his other greatest passion- supporting marginalized communities.

BWW REVIEW: Heart-warming And Hilarious, MURIEL'S WEDDING THE MUSICAL Is A Brilliant New Australian Musical That Must Not Be Missed by Jade Kops - Nov 20, 2017

MURIEL'S WEDDING THE MUSICAL, the much anticipated musical theatre adaptation of PJ Hogan's iconic movie from 1994, is absolutely wonderful, capturing the heart and soul of its inspiration with an added depth and incredible new music by Kate Miller-Heidke and Keir Nuttall.

BWW Reviews: Room for Doubt in Sugar-Daddy's LADY LUCK at the Intimate Theatre by David Fick - May 26, 2013

The Sugar-daddy Theatre Company's production of LADY LUCK is a pretty bleak affair. Relentlessly nihilistic, the play is set in Cape Town's seedy underbelly, a world in which exotic dancers mingle with mobsters and where loan sharks circle their unfortunate prey.

BWW Review: SWAN LAKE, Royal Opera House by Vikki Jane Vile - Mar 7, 2020

Enough words have been given to the controversy surrounding this run of Liam Scarlett's Swan Lake, its first revival since a largely triumphant premiere in 2018. I don't wish to dwell further here, and instead want to focus on what was one of the most memorable nights at the theatre in quite some time thanks to some virtuoso central performances, a faultless corps de ballet, and the transporting set and costumes of John Macfarlane.

CENTERSTAGE's 'Night Music': Elegant and Charming by James Howard - Mar 21, 2008

BWW Review: Delightfully Outrageous and Incorrect: The PRODUCERS at Biddeford City Theater by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Jul 29, 2018

It is almost fifty years since the original Mel Brooks film and seventeen since the Broadway stage version of Mel Brook's hilarious and outrageously funny, totally incorrect musical, The Producers, hit the stage. And despite it, or perhaps because of the contentious climate in which we live, this glorious tonic of laughter and colorful characters still rings true and commands a wrapt audience. Biddeford city Theater's production, directed by Linda Sturdivant, provides a glorious afternoon escape into the world of parody, spoof, and Broadway innuendo. The production is a large one for this ambitious community theatre, and they rise admirably to the challenge. Sturdivant directs and produces with a sure hand and a very balanced sense of humor - Mel Brooks requires a deft touch, despite the overt quality of his comedy. She expertly captures the iconic moments, keeps the stage pace, moves the action, and helps the cast establish the colorful characters.

BWW Review: HAND TO GOD's Puppet Ministry Gone Wild at Studio by Roger Catlin - Jul 13, 2016

The long ride up the elevator to Studio Theater's Stage 4 is certainly rewarded in the regional premiere of Robert Askins' Broadway hit Hand to God.

BWW Review: Hats Off to Lyric Theatre's Stellar Production of CROWNS by Robert Barossi - Feb 9, 2018

Some musicals or plays can be a little bit difficult to pin down or describe and Regina Taylor's Crowns, now playing at Lyric Theatre's Plaza stage is in that category. The program's Director's Notes say, in part, that the musical is "presented as a jukebox musical," which it is in that it uses previously recorded songs woven into a plot, but that doesn't tell the whole story. To say that it's a "show about hats," would be a huge oversimplification and a disservice to a show that is so much more than that.

BWW Review: Dudamel's Baptism by Fire Turns in a Solid, Throbbing OTELLO at the Met by Richard Sasanow - Dec 17, 2018

Talk about baptism by fire! That's what Gustavo Dudamel--that wunderkind of the classical conducting world--faced as he reached the podium of the Met for the first time Friday night. Not only was he conducting Verdi's great opera, OTELLO, but he was doing so with a last-minute substitute in the title role. The result: All went well with the Met's production of the masterwork.

The Desert Rose Playhouse production of THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL is currently running in the company's new location in Palm Springs.

BWW Recap: Mission Impossible, Wolf Protocol on TEEN WOLF by Jennifer McHugh - Aug 11, 2015

BWW Interview: Kaitlyn Booth And Nova Lorraine of THE UNEXPECTED GUEST at Little Theatre Of Mechanicsburg by Andrea Stephenson - Apr 26, 2019

Add together a foggy night, dead body, clues that point in different directions, twists and turns, and what do you get? Agatha Christie's The Unexpected Guest. The Unexpected Guest opened in 1958 in the West End and was turned into a novel by Charles Osborne in 1999. Test out your detective skills at Little Theatre Mechanicsburg where The Unexpected Guest will take the stage April 26-May 12. I had the opportunity to take a sneak peak of the first act and to speak with two of the actors-Kaitlyn Booth, portraying Laura Warwick, and Nova Lorraine, playing Inspector Thomas.

BWW Opera Review: Met's New ELEKTRA Has the Cast and Conductor--But Where's the Catharsis? by Richard Sasanow - Apr 26, 2016

The Met's new production of Richard Strauss's ELEKTRA is something to behold, with Vincent Huguet recreating the original by the late Patrice Chereau from France's Aix-en-Provence Festival. Starring the glorious Nina Stemme in the title role--and backed by the stellar performances of Waltraud Meier as Klytamnestra, Adrianne Pieczonka as Chrysothemis and Eric Owens as Orest--this is a cast that would be hard to better. Add to it conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen's insightful, propulsive performance with the great Met orchestra. And, yet, there was…something missing: catharsis--no burst of rapture and the urge to jump up and applaud.
