by Stephen Sorokoff - Apr 18, 2017

The word Artist is never more accurately applied to an entertainer then when it is used to describe Clint Holmes.  Clint starts with a familiar song title on a blank music  page, and then goes on to create something you never thought that tune could become.   His vocal, jazz, acting ability, combined with his creativity cross every music red, blue, black and white music line you ever laid down.  Most of the audience at Jim Caruso's Broadway at Birdland Series were already 'educated consumers' at his performance celebrating the CD Release of 'Rendezvous'  last night.  However, for all, it was a reminder of what a truly great performer can brilliantly accomplish with the same 12 notes and combination of beats that all vocalists have at their disposal.   (more...)

by Robert Barossi - Apr 16, 2017

Rodgers and Hammerstein shows are known for being of a certain type. They are rarely what might be called small or minimalist and it would be tricky for any theater to do minimalist versions of most of them. These are shows that often have the word “big” attached to them and for a smaller sized theater with somewhat  limited resources to attempt one of these big shows is an ambitious effort. Jewel Box Theatre is currently trying to do just that with a fully staged production of one of these shows, South Pacific, and the attempt ends up with highly mixed results. (more...)
