BWW Review: Karen Oberlin Presents Captivating Revival Of Frank Loesser Tribute Show As One Of 'Cabaret's Greatest Hits' at Metropolitan RoomBWW Review: Karen Oberlin Presents Captivating Revival Of Frank Loesser Tribute Show As One Of 'Cabaret's Greatest Hits' at Metropolitan Room
by Alix Cohen - Jan 15, 2016

Karen Oberlin's original performance of Heart & Soul: The Songs of Frank Loesser in 2010 (Loesser's Centennial celebration year) at The Algonquin Hotel's legendary Oak Room earned her a MAC Award nomination for “Best Major Artist” (as well as an award for the Live CD) and sterling reviews. Hence, the show's inclusion in Producer Stephen Hanks' monthly Metropolitan Room series, New York Cabaret's Greatest Hits (which launched last August and runs through 2016). Oberlin's captivating performance Wednesday evening showcased not only her acknowledged prowess with plumy ballads, but also her flair for comedy and an aptitude that handles nuanced jazz with seamless transitions. The vocalist was joined by her original collaborators, Musical Director Jon Weber on piano and Sean Smith on bass, while the show was directed by the piece's original helmsman, Eric Michael Gillett.

by BWW News Desk - Dec 1, 2015

Pianists are often presented with a quandary - to improvise or not to improvise. For acclaimed pianists Jenny Lin and Uri Caine, the response to this dilemma is: why not both?

BWW Interviews: The Pleasures, Perils, and Pitfalls of Casting a SeasonBWW Interviews: The Pleasures, Perils, and Pitfalls of Casting a Season
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Apr 28, 2015

Maine State Music Theatre Finds Its Talent for Summer 2015 When the audience thinks of casting for a Broadway musical, they conjure up the image of a darkened auditorium, an artist onstage peering into the glare and hearing Zach's voice from out of the void with its curt dismissal, 'Thank you.' Since its smash opening on Broadway in 1975 A Chorus Line has come to embody in poetic terms the uphill struggles of countless artists who toil every day on stage and off in pursuit of the metier they love. The rituals of auditioning and casting calls are integral to the life of an actor or theatre director, and each year they are played out in countless theatres large and small across the country, a crucial part of the puzzle that goes into shaping a successful season.

by Remy Block - Apr 9, 2015

While the frat boys parked their boozy asses in the bar car (aka the couch) for the long road to the NCAA's Final Four over the past few weeks, NYC's village cabaret club The Duplex offered an alternative "March Madness": Cabaret shows about being crazy. As a devotee of time on a different sort of couch, I was drawn in to three separate performances--from Michael Shea, Stacie Koby, and Amber Petty--seeking some music therapy to get me through the tail end of a long winter.

BWW Reviews: Maureen McGovern's New 54 Below Show Celebrating Her Singer/Songwriter 'Sisters' Is Overstuffed and Over-SeasonedBWW Reviews: Maureen McGovern's New 54 Below Show Celebrating Her Singer/Songwriter 'Sisters' Is Overstuffed and Over-Seasoned
by Alix Cohen - Mar 12, 2015

Emerging as a pop diva in the 1970s, Maureen McGovern has been somewhere on the scene for decades. She still has a powerful, well-honed instrument, sufficient to perform confident acapella. However, It's difficult to tell from her new 54 Below show, Sing, My Sisters, Sing! Celebrating Women Singer/Songwriters, whether the artist's range has vastly diminished or arrangements and rhythms, often unsympathetic to original tunes, are so similar as to make an otherwise diverse selection of songs homogeneous.
