BWW Review: Suzanne Vega Burns Bright Singing McCullers Songs at Cafe CarlyleBWW Review: Suzanne Vega Burns Bright Singing McCullers Songs at Cafe Carlyle
by Troy Frisby - Mar 23, 2017

Suzanne Vega is not a firecracker; she's a sparkler. In the first night of her run at Cafe Carlyle on March 15---since the previous day's show was nixed due to a rude winter storm named Stella---Vega was dazzling, but in the smallest, most personal way possible. Getting up onstage, she spoke with the calm, reassuring but controlled tone of a therapist or a meditation coach.

BWW Review: Brave, Bold, and Beautiful SPRING AWAKENING at Lyric Music TheaterBWW Review: Brave, Bold, and Beautiful SPRING AWAKENING at Lyric Music Theater
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Mar 20, 2017

South Portland's Lyric Music Theater is taking a bold and daring step in presenting the 2006 musical adaptation of Frank Wedekind's 1891 provocative play, Spring Awakening. The wrenching musical drama explores with a piercing honesty the lives of teenagers and their adult authority figures locked in a lethal struggle as the young men and women search for freedom of expression, sexual liberation and fulfillment, and the embrace of their true identities in a dark, corseted world of repression and convention. The issues raised by Frank Wedekind's play remain as potent and relevant today as they did in the late 19th century, and the Steven Sater book and lyrics and Duncan Sheik music remain true to the essence of the piece. Wedekind's world - the world of Freud and nascent psychology - is a bleak place where adults abuse their children psychologically and physically, where creativity is stifled, and love - as a total expression of body and soul - is forbidden. In this dark universe, the young villagers long in secret and search for a path through the pain. (more...)
