BWW Review: JOEY ARIAS (with Ben Allison) Brings His LITTLE BLACK BOOK and Downtown Sensibilities To PangeaBWW Review: JOEY ARIAS (with Ben Allison) Brings His LITTLE BLACK BOOK and Downtown Sensibilities To Pangea
by Alix Cohen - Jun 1, 2016

Joey Arias, vocalist/songwriter/actor/performance artist/host, has been on the scene here since the 1980s. Visually and vocally distinctive, Arias's signature black bangs and ponytail have been on stages such as Club 57, Astor Theater, HERE, and Abrons Art Center--not to mention playing Mistress of Seduction at Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity in Las Vegas.  To say the physically diminutive Arias is larger than life is a comment on her fully inhabited, unique presence and talent. On May 30 (the third of seven show run through late July), she's aided and abetted in Little Black Book (no idea what the title means) by Musical Director (and superb bass player) Ben Allison and guitarist Brandon Seabrook.

Mabou Mines and Trick Saddle to Stage IMAGINING THE IMAGINARY INVALID at La MaMa This WinterMabou Mines and Trick Saddle to Stage IMAGINING THE IMAGINARY INVALID at La MaMa This Winter
by BWW News Desk - Dec 17, 2015

A classic Mabou Mines feat is to take a theatrical classic, reimagine it from top to bottom, then turn it inside out; the result is a production so spanking new that the original gleams with fresh and unexpected relevance. The tradition continues in a collaboration with Trick Saddle and the 45-year old company. The two companies combine forces in the world premiere of 'Imagining the Imaginary Invalid,' inspired by 'The Imaginary Invalid,' Moliere's piercing satiric take on the pretension, gullibility and vulnerability of we poor mortals. Presented by La MaMa, a production of Mabou Mines and Trick Saddle, the play runs January 21-February 7 at La MaMa's Ellen Stewart Theatre. (more...)
