BWW Review: Benjamin Eakeley Dazzles with BROADWAY SWINGER at Feinstein's/54 BelowBWW Review: Benjamin Eakeley Dazzles with BROADWAY SWINGER at Feinstein's/54 Below
by David Clarke - Jan 11, 2016

Last week, Broadway veteran Benjamin Eakeley delighted audiences with his charming solo cabaret Broadway Swinger at Feinstein's/54 Below. The 60s themed show featured a book by Tim Murray and Eakeley, which was filled with interesting factoids about the decade. It was also masterfully directed by JV Mercanti. Through the songs of Broadway and with a gorgeous vocal instrument, Eakeley charted how musical theater, much like the rest of America, transitioned from the saccharine sweet ideals of the 50s to the uninhibited and libidinous vibes of the sexual revolution.

Premierenreport: Frische Neuproduktion von MY FAIR LADY in KielPremierenreport: Frische Neuproduktion von MY FAIR LADY in Kiel
by Iris Moebius - Nov 9, 2015

Genau so viel Mut wie ihre Heldin Eliza bewiesen Alan Jay Lerner und Frederick Loewe 1956, als sie aus George Bernard Shaws erfolgreicher »Romanze in 5 Akten« Pygmalion ein Musical machten. Doch diese Courage zahlte sich aus - MY FAIR LADY wurde zu dem Musical überhaupt und stellt auch 60 Jahre nach seiner Uraufführung am Broadway noch überraschende Fragen an die Bedeutung von Bildung und Verhalten für unser Fortkommen und das Verhältnis von intellektueller und emotionaler Intelligenz für unser Zusammenleben - verpackt in einer immer noch bezaubernd ehrlichen Variante des Aschenputtel-Motivs. Das Theater Kiel inszeniert den Klassiker in dieser Spielzeit nun unter der Leitung von Ricarda Regina Ludigkeit. Die Premiere fand am vergangenen Samstag statt, und Publikum wie Presse zeigten sich gleichermaßen beeindruckt. (more...)
