Ana Gasteyer to Bring I'M HIP to Schimmel Center at Pace UniversityAna Gasteyer to Bring I'M HIP to Schimmel Center at Pace University
by BWW News Desk - Feb 22, 2016

From songs like One Mint Julep and Proper Cup of Coffee to a surprisingly smooth rendition of Carrie Underwood's Before He Cheats, Gasteyer's saucy selections tell stories with humor, heartbreak…and just a little splash of soda. Her vibe recalls that of a time when enter- tainers truly entertained, an era when a broad could bring home the bacon, swing a set of sultry standards and still be a gracious hostess. Ana's heroes are those fun-loving dames who downed a cocktail, donned a dress and fronted a band of dapper gents in sharp suits wielding shiny horns-think Barbara Stanwyck in Ball of Fire as she captures Gary Cooper's heart. And then breaks it. (more...)

GREASE: LIVE Took the Live TV Musical to School with Three Important LessonsGREASE: LIVE Took the Live TV Musical to School with Three Important Lessons
by Matt Tamanini - Feb 14, 2016

Now that we are a full two weeks removed from Fox's first foray into the world of live, televised musicals, I think it is time to look back at the lessons learned from GREASE: LIVE. Though I hailed it as a rousing success in my review, on Broadway Radio's 'This Week on Broadway,' and on BWW's 'Some Like it Pop' podcast, there are a fair number of critics and viewers that had perfectly reasonable hesitations. Whether it was occasional sound issues, too strict a reliance on the film for inspiration, the wonky new song, or uneven performances, I am fine with acknowledging those shortcomings; but to me, there are three things that made GREASE: LIVE the most entertaining and artistically satisfying live musical of this recently reinvigorated phenomenon.
