Composer George Gershwin had been dead for almost six decades by the time Connor Allston, Lottie Prenevost, J.T. Wood and Morgan Wood were born. Yet the combined power of the voices of that quartet brought back to life the music of Gershwin and his contemporaries in Otterbein University's production of THE ALL NIGHT STRUT. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Lively and Fun HOLIDAY INN at The MunyBWW Reviews: Lively and Fun HOLIDAY INN at The Muny
by Chris Gibson - Jul 7, 2015

I remember as a kid always getting the movie HOLIDAYINN confused with the movie White Christmas, usually because they played them back to back, and of course, both feature the tuneful music of Irving Berlin, as well as a splendid performance by Bing Crosby. A few years back, when I first started reviewing theatre I covered The MUNY's early production of the stage version of White Christmas, and here I am years later taking in only the second presentation of HOLIDAYINN. I think this is a terrific show filled with eye-popping choreography, big splashy numbers, and enough romantic entanglements to please any fan of the original film. If you're looking for a perfect example of how an old wartime flick can be transformed into a lively and fun stage musical, then look no further, the MUNY has you covered with their highly enjoyable production of Holiday Inn.

by Alix Cohen - Jul 1, 2015

Monday night at the upstairs library at The Player's Club, young actor/vocalist Evan Stern collaborated with one of cabaret's treasures, the veteran pianist/arranger/vocalist Steve Ross on a show illuminating the influence of a southern upbringing on the work of iconic songwriter and Savannah, Georgia native Johnny Mercer. The piece was beautifully put together with Stern's intermittent repartee (never dropping a musical stitch), reflecting his skills as an actor as well as a writer. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis' ANYTHING GOES - It's 'De-Lovely'!BWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis' ANYTHING GOES - It's 'De-Lovely'!
by Joseph Baker - Jun 6, 2015

It's early June in Memphis, but, with the recent success of Playhouse on the Square's KISS ME, KATE and, now, Theatre Memphis' sparkling production of ANYTHING GOES, we seem to be having, as my late grandmother might say, 'another 'cole' snap' - Cole Porter, that is. Who would not welcome the giddy book by the great P.G. Wodehouse and Guy Bolton, with a reworking by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse? And who has not delighted to such songs as 'You're the Top,' 'I Get a Kick Out of You,' 'Blow, Gabriel, Blow,' 'It's De-Lovely,' and, of course, the title tune? (more...)
