The Blind Boys of Alabama Comes to Marcus Center's Wilson Theater at Vogel Hall
by BWW News Desk - Nov 13, 2018

The Blind Boys of Alabama have the rare distinction of being recognized around the world as both living legends and modern-day innovators.

Sloucher Shares Advance Stream Of Debut Album BE TRUE With An Essay By Michael Benjamin Lerner of Telekinesis
by BWW News Desk - Nov 13, 2018

Seattle's Sloucher will release their debut album Be True this Friday, November 16, and today the band is sharing an advance stream of the record on the Talkhouse. The stream comes accompanied by an essay by fellow Seattle musician Michael Benjamin Lerner of Telekinesis, who says Be True 'instantly feels like a classic. It's a best friend, the comfortable blanket of sound I find myself constantly reaching toward after too many electronic or experimental records - a palate cleanser of wonderful melodies, infectious guitar lines, and great no frills rock and roll.'

BWW Review: THE COLOR PURPLE Speaks Directly to the Need for Hope and Redemption During Challenging Times
by Shari Barrett - Nov 13, 2018

I cannot even think of enough accolades to share about the current production being staged by Greenway Arts Alliance (Whitney Weston and Pierson Blaetz, Co-Founders and Co-Artistic Directors) at the Greenway Court Theatre (544 N. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles) through December 9. The totally entertaining and artistically brilliant production, directed and choreographed by NAACP Theater Award-winner Jeffrey Polk, pulled me in from the moment it started until the end, given the amazingly talented cast who bring the characters so realistically to life that you can actually feel all the emotions each is going through from moment to moment. You will laugh, be fearful, cry and celebrate with all of them by the time the show ends. (more...)

BWW Review: CARRIE, A Bedeviled Material Given Every Ounce of Emotional Commitment
by Robert Encila-Celdran - Nov 13, 2018

Sneer if you must, but it seems 'Carrie, The Musical' keeps finding an agreeable audience. The cult classic has endured all manner of critical rebuke and inspired a few vicious parodies along the way. But certain companies remain undaunted, hell-bent on resurrecting a departed and beleaguered heroine (who'd just as soon stay invisible if she had any choice in the matter). (more...)

BWW Review: The National Tour of the Foul Mouthed and Big Hearted THE BOOK OF MORMON Returns to Minneapolis for its 4th Engagement
by Jill Schafer - Nov 13, 2018

If theater is my religion, THE BOOK OF MORMON is my most sacred text. Not the actual book of course, rather the wildly irreverent musical written by the creators of SOUTH PARK (Trey Parker and Matt Stone) along with EGOT winner Robert Lopez. It is a nearly perfect musical, and definitely one of most joyous musicals I've ever seen. One of the brilliant things about THE BOOK OF MORMON is that it allows us to laugh at institutionalized religion (and let's face it, there are plenty of ridiculous things to laugh at) while still espousing the value of faith in oneself and one's friends and community, and 'working together to make this our paradise planet!' It truly is a feel-good musical that has the hugest heart, despite its unbelievably foul mouth. Back when it premiered in 2011, THE BOOK OF MORMON was what HAMILTON is today - a smash hit musical that swept the Tonys and was an impossible ticket to get. Fortunately seven years later tickets are a little easier to come by; tickets are still available (including rush and lottery, click here for details). If you're a fan of musical theater (who isn't offended by profanity and poking fun at religion), THE BOOK OF MORMON is definitely a must-see. And since it's still running on Broadway and touring the country, it likely won't be available for regional productions for many years, so this tour may be your only chance to see it for a while. Don't miss it! (more...)

CINDERELLA: A WICKED MOTHER OF A NIGHT OUT! to Play Pop-Up Venues Across UK
by Julie Musbach - Nov 13, 2018

Taking the term 'pub theatre' literally, Cinderella is an outrageous site-specific show that takes all the best of traditional British panto and tops it off with a pint. Penned by Luke Barnes (All We Ever Wanted Was Everything), this knees up of a night out brings all the characters you know, love and hate, to pull your mates, spill your pints and pour their hearts out on the Karaoke. Crammed with live music, bingo, massaoke, and a touch of midnight magic, Cinderella will have you dancing in the aisles and laughing your bloody baubles off. Think Tarantino meets Shameless, meets ELF...all in a real, local boozer. (more...)
