KISSY COUSINS MONSTER BABIES Receives 100th Film Festival Prize
by BWW News Desk - Nov 22, 2018

Can 100 film festivals possibly be wrong in giving a 90s retro comedy lovingly referred to as KCMB, which commenced shooting 26 years ago and finally wrapped in April 2018, as many film festivals nods including "official selections" and other assorted awards?

by Michael Dale - Mar 17, 2019

According to this reviewer's admittedly casual bit of Googling, the first Broadway production based on Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' was playwright Alice Gerstenberg's version, which opened at the Booth in 1915.

BWW Review: Time is the Real Star of Bartlett Theater's Production of CONSTELLATIONS
by Lauren Van Hemert - Mar 11, 2019

Boy and girl meet. Boy and girl meet again and fall in love. Boy and girl meet again, fall in love again, and break up. In fact, boy and girl meet, fall in love, fall apart, time and time again, in Nick Payne's two-person play CONSTELLATIONS. The play is part of Bartlett Theater's current season, a season which finds the company partnering with Northgate Cinema Stadium 10 in Durham. And for the most part, this venue, which worked so excellently for Bartlett's last production THE FLICK, also works for this production. This time around, ethereal projections are cast across the screen, setting the stage for a play that defies both time and space. (more...)

Throwing Out My CDs by Ben Rimalower: EVITA

Woof. This week is the biggest decluttering task I've attempted yet-throwing out my Evita CDs. I got 99 problems and Evita CDs are all of them.

BWW Review: THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, New Wimbledon Theatre
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Feb 12, 2019

Theatre audiences are certainly less easy to shock these days than they were back in 1973 when Richard O'Brien's outrageous musical The Rocky Horror Show first debuted at the Royal Court. These days gender is a much more fluid concept and cross-dressing is commonplace rather than quirky. Shows such as Everyone's Talking About Jamie and Kinky Boots have The Rocky Horror Show to thank for elevating cross dressing to the mainstream. Despite the fact that the show is no longer radical, here's still something deliciously teasing about a show that celebrates an alternative sexual reality and the joy of grown men wearing fishnets.
