Theater at Monmouth to Present THE MAKING OF A HARD DAY'S NIGHT, 8/7
by BWW News Desk - Jul 29, 2014

The British Invasion continues at Theater at Monmouth with Mark S. Cartier's presentation The Making of a Hard Day's Night on Thursday, August 7 at 7:30 p.m. Join TAM favorite, Mark S. Cartier, as he covers a ten-month period in the history of the most influential band in the rock era: The Beatles. Developed as a final piece of component of the trilogy which includes The Beatlemania Years: 1962-1966 and Beatles: The Studio Years 1967-1970 produced at TAM in the 2012 and 2013 seasons. The Making of a Hard Day's Night starts in late 1963, as Beatlemania blossomed in Britain. United Artists offered the Beatles the chance to star in their own rock 'n' roll film. Mark S. Cartier traces how the group conquered America, unleashed the British Invasion, hosted their own television special, and launched their first world tour-all while simultaneously helping to create what Andrew Sarris of the Village Voice calls "the Citizen Kane of juke box movies."

BWW Reviews: JERSEY BOYS is Sensational!
by Herbert Paine - Jul 24, 2014

Jersey Boys is far more than a jukebox musical. It is deeper and richer in story line, texture, and technique than most~ a tale of invention, of the creative work-in-progress, the sometimes perilous and sometimes glorious alchemy that, in the case of four young men from the gritty streets of Newark, transforms them into one of America's iconic rock and pop groups. And their story is brilliantly conveyed in perfect harmony by Hayden Milanes (whose tenor falsetto is spot-on Valli), Nicolas Dromard, Quinn VanAntwerp, and Adam Zelasko. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Cabrillo Brings Back BYE BYE BIRDIE
by Don Grigware - Jul 21, 2014

Ah, the rhythms of the 50s/60s! Got 'A Lot of Livin' to Do'! Lee Adams and Charles Strouse wrote the music and lyrics of Bye Bye Birdie to honor a generation of fans who swooned and literally gave themselves over to the rock and roll of Elvis Presley. Conrad Birdie (Austin MacPhee) is an obvious play on Conway Twitty, a rock star of that era who later became a superstar in the world of country. When Elvis went into the army, he became a national hero. Female teens adored him and would give up their own boyfriends just to be near him. This is Bye Bye Birdie in a nutshell now in a rollicking revival at Cabrillo Music Theatre through July 27. (more...)
