BWW Reviews: Usually Marvelous LAUREN FOX Missteps With New Show Chronicling Groupies Who Bedded and/or Inspired Rock LegendsBWW Reviews: Usually Marvelous LAUREN FOX Missteps With New Show Chronicling Groupies Who Bedded and/or Inspired Rock Legends
by Alix Cohen - May 21, 2015

With her new show at the Metropolitan Room that opened last night—Groupies: The Muses Behind the Legends of Rock & Roll--the usually smart and meticulous Lauren Fox (as evidenced by her shows that celebrated the music of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen and later the Pop/Rock that emerged from Laurel Canyon in the 1960s) has here chosen questionable territory--the celebration of women who serially slept their way through the music business or, as Fox more poetically says, “Made it their life's mission to meet the beautiful boys who made the music that moved them.” Hook-ups are exemplified by often unappealing numbers (too much monotone) and bridged with quotes by groupies whose role as “muses” or sources of creative inspiration seems a stretch.

BWW Reviews: Amy Lynn & The Gunshow Tear the Roof Off 54 BelowBWW Reviews: Amy Lynn & The Gunshow Tear the Roof Off 54 Below
by David Clarke - Feb 27, 2015

The funk soul of Motown is being modernized and reshaped by big name acts like Bruno Mars and Fitz and The Tantrums; however, no one is doing it quite like Amy Lynn & The Gunshow. Strip away the frills of a large record label, throw in a ton of sass, mix with wit and charisma, and garnish with an explosive horn section. That is the recipe for Amy Lynn & The Gunshow's style, and it leaves a whole lotta shakin' goin' on! (more...)

by Katricia Lang - Feb 9, 2015

At one point, I think someone threw underwear on the stage, but I can't verify this, because I'm lying. At any rate, there were more whistles and cheers than applause. That's not customary for a ballet. (more...)

The extremely personable Cheyenne Jackson landed in Cafe Carlyle last night as if on the moon. A hardscrabble, Ohio childhood and late start in the business explain the artist's astonishment at finding himself in the prestigious nightclub. While Jackson's resume includes leading roles in Broadway musicals such as All Shook Up (2004), Xanadu (2007), Damn Yankees (2008), and Finian's Rainbow (2010), he took the Carlyle stage with only one cabaret appearance under his belt so the genre is as unfamiliar to the vocalist as the venue.

by Billie Roe - Dec 17, 2014

The month of December has always been an emotional time of the year, especially for our military families; a period to deeply reflect on family and country. Over the past few months in New York cabaret, a few performers have offered up musical testimony on wars, patriotism, and US military veterans. Recently, two singers fairly new to the cabaret scene--Anna Marie Sell and Kim Sutton--staged shows saluting the brave men and women who serve our country now and in the past. (more...)
