BWW Review: Strawberry Theatre Workshop's WHY WE HAVE A BODY a Head-Scratcher
by Amelia Reynolds - Sep 19, 2017

Everyone has memories that feel rife with significance, but said significance does not necessarily make sense to others. And if the best depiction of said memory is beyond traditional language, then playwrights like Claire Chafee use poetic language to communicate said significance. In Chafee's Why We Have a Body , four women tell their stories in a series of vignettes and monologues using poetic language, and yet any significance Chafee is Trying to communicate gets lost in translation.

Guest Blog: Ben Glasstone On Puppets, Nostalgia and BOOK STORY
by Guest Blog: Ben Glasstone - Sep 19, 2017

It always feels foolish to rail against the modern world. We remember our parents and grandparents disapproving of our youthful frolics and fixations and when our turn comes to be grown-ups, we try to have enough self-awareness not to disapprove too loudly in our turn. (more...)

As the late Oscar Wilde once said: life is too important to be taken seriously , an ethos that Justin Martin is sticking with despite achieving soaring success over the last six years as a producer and international DJ. Justin initially pricked the ears of the electronic music community in 2003 with his first record The Sad Piano? on Ben Watt?s Buzzin? Fly label. Everyone in the electronic music food chain got involved, from the A list DJs like Derrick Carter and Pete Tong that were playing the track, to the international music press that were raving about it. It even translated to the German underground, with Poker Flat licensing it for Steve Bug?s Bugnology? compilation. Like someone that goes bowling for the first time and gets five strikes and a turkey, Justin couldn?t really have hoped for a better entrance. (more...)

BWW Review: Next Stop's DISGRACED a Stunning, Necessary Examination of All-American Prejudice
by Andrew White - Sep 18, 2017

Stop for a moment to think how things have changed; how the election of Donald Trump and the imposition of a travel ban on Muslims and openly anti-immigrant, pro-white nationalist sentiment have torn away at the nation. It is no wonder that Akhtar's searing drama deserves its place on the stage right here, and right now. (more...)

BWW Review: FUN HOME at Winspear Opera House
by Samuel Weber - Sep 17, 2017

Fun Home will always have a special place in my heart. The score and source material are some of the most thoughtful work on the stage in recent years - not to mention the innovation of the Broadway staging. Needless to say, I was curious how well the show would lend itself to tour, perhaps even a bit wary. And yet, with all my expectations, the Fun Home tour indeed made me want to play airplane.

BWW Review: IN THE HEIGHTS in the Moonlight
by E.H. Reiter - Sep 16, 2017

Before there was HAMILTON, there was Lin-Manuel Miranda's other Tony Award winning show, IN THE HEIGHTS.

Join our stars backstage as they now tour the first 'Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?' to star an 'actually disabled' Blanche. It's seen better days and so have they. What can possibly go wrong as they pull back the curtain on their lives, loves and losses? (more...)

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...)

Review: Laughs Abound at THE 25th ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE at the Norris Theatre
by Shari Barrett - Sep 16, 2017

THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE is a hip musical comedy which follows six young people in the throes of puberty, who are overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, as they learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. The musical, featuring emotionally revealing musical selections filled with side-splitting lyrics written by William Finn, chronicles the overachievers' angst of six precocious adolescents who turn out to be the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom the Bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

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.
