October 19, 2014
During Georgia Southern University's one-act production of John Cariani's ALMOST, MAINE, the most frequent question I asked myself was first, 'Why did those hooligans on the front row come to see this show?' and second, 'Is that a new character?' Student shows of course come with student patrons, but unruly ones have great potential to ruin a production- and these distracting young people very nearly did. And I must say that in a show full of short vignettes, concentration was vital. Thus from a 'kids these days' approach did I view this play, wishing I had brought a cane to wave in frustration.BWW Interviews: Phyllis Newman Talks Broadway, Husband Adolph Green, and the Great ON THE TOWN

December 11, 2012
After the last two weeks' eliminations on NBC's The Voice, I really I didn't know what to believe in anymore. Two weeks ago, an extremely talented fan favorite, Dez Duron, was sent home, and last week Adam Levine's last two mentees, including powerhouse rocker Amanda Brown, left as well. It's times like those when you just have to wonder what all of the voters in America were thinking. So tonight, the Fab Four became only three, and I was bracing myself for another one of my favorites to leave. At the start of tonight's show, the only contestants left were from Teams CeeLo Green and Blake Shelton. So don that more than adequate pessimism and let the nerve-wracking evening begin!VOICE OVER: Elite Eight Become Six with a Shocking Elimination

The results shows are very fun, because it's an hour of variety in which the coaches actually get to show off why they are part of this singing show. This is something that distinguishes The Voice on NBC from other shows like it. Another fun part is that the contestants get to sing together, and they can relax because they are not being judged on their performance. Then of course there are the guest performers, like Rascal Flatts tonight. All of those elements were part of tonight's results show, which revealed the Top 8 by the end.VOICE OVER: The Top 10 Take Risks & Instigate Change
