BWW Review: Spend a Day Filled with Artistic Delights at Art Festivals and THE PAGEANT OF THE MASTERS in Laguna Beach
by Shari Barrett - Jul 31, 2018

For the past several summers, I have attended the Festival of Arts and The Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach. But this year, I also decided to also visit two other art festivals along Laguna Canyon Road rather than spend any time cruising the town as I had done before. The full-day of exploring all the artistic delights on display this year at all three locations left me dazzled by all the talent on display, while wishing I had lot of extra income to purchase and bring home many of the awe-inspiring items that caught my fancy. But the real highlight of the day was viewing the abundance of 'local color' on display in this summer's 'Under the Sun' themed Pageant of the Masters. (more...)

Photo Flash: Waterbury Playhouse Presents THE NETHER
by BWW News Desk - Jul 30, 2018

Waterbury Festival Playhouse is known for doing shows that are intense and that you'll talk about for hours after you've seen them.  Jennifer Haley's, The Nether, is just such a show, a cunning yet creepy play about the not too distant future. Haley, a Los Angeles writer who specializes in the ethics of technology, has created an intricate drama and a haunting thriller set in what may be the near future that makes us question what constitutes crime in a world of relative realities.  The Internet has morphed into the Nether and as her characters spend more time in the Nether than they do in "real life", the distinction between the real world and the virtual realm begins to blur.

by Shari Barrett - Jul 29, 2018

Even if you have seen it before, I cannot stress enough how miraculous the current production of ANNIE is at the Hollywood Bowl, directed with creative ingenuity by Michael Arden.

Miss Hedges is the cornerstone of the production and her soaring, pitch-perfect voice and effervescent stage presence setting the jubilant tone for the entire ensemble. (more...)

On Friday July 13th, I witnessed the incredible performances of Misty Copeland, Isabella Boylston and Jeffrey Cirio as the lead soloists in the mesmerizing and captivating La Bayadere', at the world-renowned Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, at the Music Center in Downtown Los Angeles.

It is a vitally important part of Los Angeles being able to appreciate Dance as one of the primary communicative Arts worth sponsoring and being available to our entire community. It is more important than ever, as, sadly, our support and funding for the Arts keeps dwindling on especially the National level. (more...)
