Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts Scheduled For April 7-May 1, 2011
April 7, 2011

Lights on, curtains up. It's Philadelphia's moment, as the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) turns a bright spotlight on the city's arts and cultural scene. For three weeks, from April 7 through May 1, 2011, audiences will revel in an array of one-time, only-in-Philadelphia productions by some of the region's top talents-many of whom will partner with or present international performers. PIFA will feature music, dance, fashion, fine arts, poetry, cuisine and more-all generously flavored with the essence of Paris, circa 1910-1920.

All of the hard work, auto-tuning, and themed episodes put in by GLEE's New Directions has paid off - New Directions goes to Regionals!
GLEE-Cap: FunkGLEE-Cap: Funk
June 1, 2010

This week on GLEE, everyone at McKinley High is in a funk, from Mr. Schuester finalizing his divorce to Kurt feeling so depressed he wore the same outfit twice in a week. I can sympathize with the characters' feelings; after last week's Gaga disaster, the show had put me into a mood most foul that seemed as if it could not be rectified. While Funk' had some redeeming, even charming, moments, it did nothing to make up for the perplexing episode that preceded it and ultimately left much to be desired.

GLEE-Cap: TheatricalityGLEE-Cap: Theatricality
May 26, 2010

It has arrived, to the joy of Gleeks and Monsters alike - the long-awaited Lady Gaga week on GLEE. Theatricality' opens with Tina and Mr. Schuester in the principal's office; Tina is told she must change her goth look in order to keep the school safe (and to allay Principal Figgin's fear of vampires). This, paired with the news that Vocal Adrenaline is attempting to tackle Lady Gaga in their repertoire, leads Will to give his own Gaga assignment about theatricality in performance.

Last night, May 18, acclaimed actors Robert De Niro, Ed Harris, Morgan Freeman, and Cherry Jones joined conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Orchestra for the world premiere performance of The Dream Lives On: A Portrait of the Kennedy Brothers, at Symphony Hall in Boston, MA. Written by composer Peter Boyer and lyricist Lynn Ahrens and commissioned by Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops, The Dream Lives On pays tribute to the legacies of John, Robert, and Edward Kennedy.
GLEE-Cap: Dream OnGLEE-Cap: Dream On
May 18, 2010

It seems pretty repetitive to open this week's GLEE-Cap with another sarcastic remark about the insistence of the writing team to keep making arcane, trite 'theme' episodes from week to week on GLEE, but then, it reflects their general style. As the title of the episode indicates, this week's GLEE revolves around the subject of dreams and aspirations, namely those of Will Schuester, Artie, Rachel, and Vocal Adrenaline coach Shelby Corcoran. Even with the talents of director Joss Whedon, 'Dream On' is another in a series of muddled messes for the show.
Players Club Honors Sherman Brothers, Samuel French Inc, & Mint Theater 5/17
May 17, 2010

The Players Club has announced that legendary sibling composers Robert and Richard Sherman will receive the Theatre Museum's Career Achievement Award on May 17. Also set to receive awards are Samuel French Inc. and the Mint Theatre, each being rewarded the Theatre Museum Arts Education Award and the Theatre History Preservation Award, respectively.
GLEE-Cap: LaryngitisGLEE-Cap: Laryngitis
May 11, 2010

Like the episodes preceding it in the second half of the season, this week's episode of GLEE has a theme: finding one's voice. Laryngitis' revolves around Puck's attempts to regain popularity after a trip to the skin doctor forces him to part with his signature mohawk, which in turn leads to his being deposited in a dumpster by the school's geeks, Rachel Berry's tonsillitis, and Kurt's attempts to connect with his father. Ultimately, though, Laryngitis' left me wishing the writers would come down with a case of the illness themselves (I realize the tie-in is forced, but so is most of the show's writing).
BWW Reviews: Blackfriars Theatre Presents A NEW BRAINBWW Reviews: Blackfriars Theatre Presents A NEW BRAIN
May 9, 2010

The plot of William Finn's semi-autobiographical musical, A New Brain, is not typical fare for the genre: the story of composer Gordon Michael Schwinn and his simultaneous battle with a brain injury and artistic creativity. Though its synopsis is gloomy and a little hard to comprehend out of context, A New Brain as staged by Jack Haldoupis and Blackfriars Theatre is bursting with energy, hilarity, and above all, heart.
GLEE-Cap: Bad ReputationGLEE-Cap: Bad Reputation
May 5, 2010

It almost seems too easy to take a jab at this week's episode of GLEE through its episode title, Bad Reputation.' Given the absolute disparity of quality between the episode last week and this one, however, I can't help but go for it: the writing this week could give the popular series a really bad rep.

This morning, May 4, Jeff Daniels and Lea Michele announced the nominations for the 2010 Tony Awards. In the midst of celebration on the part of many, Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil of the Los Angeles Times questions the (perhaps surprising) absence of many left off the list.

April 28, 2010

While not perfect, this week's episode of GLEE finally goes in a new direction that points to a promising future for the series. Though still inconsistent in tone and unbalanced in attention to the cast as an ensemble, GLEE is finally beginning to find a 'Home.'
