by Qianqian Xing - Oct 11, 2018

That is the freedom that I spoke about earlier. Never let the body restrict you. Human bodies have the potential to do anything, if we develop them correctly. Even the most inhuman pointe technique can be something extraordinarily modern. The time they spent on pointe, and the motions they created while en pointe were much longer and more challenging than those typically performed in classical ballet. (more...)

BWW Review: HEDDATRON at Theater Arts Department Boise State
by Leesa Williams - Nov 14, 2017

Let me start off by saying that Heddatron is not a show that most community theaters would choose for a regular season. It is an Absurdist drama that would have a hard time attracting a general audience. Nevertheless, it is a mesmerizing piece of drama with some unique facets that make it an engaging drama for enthusiasts of theatre. First produced in 2005, it's defining characteristic is the use of 'functioning robots' or at least the semblance of such. (more...)

For most people, the ability to connect with others, be touched, and explore the everyday world doesn't take much effort.

BWW Review: Be A Lion: The Third Time's A Charm!
by Vickie Evans - Dec 18, 2018

I had the pleasure to see the award-winning stage play 'Be A Lion', written by Rory D. Sheriff, inspired by the Broadway play, 'The Wiz' for the third time.

Young Pals Music Releases NYC-Based Producer & Songwriter Ayhan Sahin's New Single 'Where Do You Want To Be Tomorrow' from Award-Winning Album 'Pop'
by BWW News Desk - Aug 5, 2018

To acknowledge the Summer of 2018, Young Pals Music has released the new single 'Where Do You Want To Be Tomorrow' along with its music video (click here). This marks the eight release accompanied by the music video from the upcoming album 'Pop,' the first full-length namesake collection from New York City-based songwriter & producer Ayhan Sahin. The joyous chug-along song hints at the best of 70's acoustic rock, with the insistent snap of percussion, a cascading fan of acoustic guitars, and a surprising injection of horns that help propel the infectious beat to toe-tapping bliss. Hearing 'Where Do You Want To Be Tomorrow,' ELO's Jeff Lynne would most certainly offer an affirming thumbs up. The album 'Pop' features 12+ diverse vocalists & musicians across a myriad of styles, including R&B & soul, dance, jazz, country and of course...pop. All songs are co-written and co-produced by Sahin with hit songwriter Bernadette O'Reilly, who has also worked for three decades in artist relations, management and song placement. Among the songs released under 'Pop' are Randy Jones' dance club anthem, 'Hard Times' that launched at No. 42, as the second-highest entry among five new songs on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, for the week of August 26, 2017 with Jones being the only member of the Village People to score a solo hit. Previous single 'Another Bad Mistake' featured lead vocals from beloved disco act Anita Ward, renowned for her seminal No. 1 'Ring My Bell,' which hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100, Disco, and Soul Singles charts in 1979. The album 'Pop' is the first namesake project for award-winning Turkish-born songwriter & producer Sahin. In April, he was awarded The Akademia Music Award for Best Rock Song for 'Pop' single 'Drink' as well as the best music video for 'L.A. Nights.' Meanwhile, he has achieved notoriety in a range of musical genres, from pop, rock and dance to musical theater, while working with Olivia Newton-John, Mexican superstar & Broadway actress Bianca Marroquín, Melba Moore, Phoebe Snow, Turkish superstars Sezen Aksu and Sertab Erener, Sandra Bernhard and five 'American Idol' finalists.

BWW REVIEW: AS YOU LIKE IT at the GAMM THEATRE is a Blue Thumbs Up
by Larry O'Brien - Apr 24, 2018

The Gamm Theatre closes its fifteen year run in Pawtucket with Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT, so it was with mixed emotions that I turned right onto Exchange St. last Saturday, for the last time to be squeezed into the lyric, little bandbox of a theater. Fear not, theatergoers, they're not going away, just going to Warwick, where I trust they will continue to produce some of the most entertaining, interesting and thought provoking theater you can find. They chose to go out with Shakespeare and once again have found a new way to look at a play and led us to a new way to look at reality. It's what they do there. (more...)

BWW Review: CASE SCAGLIONE CONDUCTS THE SAN DIEGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA at the Jacobs Music Center
by Ron Bierman - Apr 13, 2018

Cristian Macelaru made a favorable impression as guest conductor here last year and was scheduled to return again, a sign that he may have been on the short list of possible choices for Jahja Ling's replacement. But the San Diego Symphony has selected Venezuelan conductor Rafael Payare as its new music director. That may have been a factor in M?celaru's decision to step in for Franz Welser-Most with the Gewandhaus Orchestra instead of appearing at the Jacobs Music Center in San Diego this past weekend. Not a problem. Young American conductor Case Scaglione did not disappoint as Macelaru's replacement. (more...)
