Recession Launches Recording Career: 'Nu-Vintage' Vocalist Laura Ainsworth Takes Unusual Road to AcclaimRecession Launches Recording Career: 'Nu-Vintage' Vocalist Laura Ainsworth Takes Unusual Road to Acclaim
by BWW News Desk - Dec 30, 2014

DALLAS, Dec. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ As a girl, Dallas-based singer Laura Ainsworth watched starry-eyed as her dad, big band sax/clarinet master Billy Ainsworth, accompanied such lounge/jazz idols as Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett and Mel Torme. She dreamed of following in their footsteps, not realizing she was witnessing the end of an era. She never imagined she would one day help bring it back to life, earning worldwide airplay, acclaim from critics and Grammy-nominated artists, and a concert tour of India and Dubai. Or that it would all start thanks to the 2008 recession. (more...)

CABARET LIFE NYC: My Second Half of 2014 Cabaret Journey or One Reviewer's Long Procrastination Special as We Bid Farewell to Another Year of Show HoppingCABARET LIFE NYC: My Second Half of 2014 Cabaret Journey or One Reviewer's Long Procrastination Special as We Bid Farewell to Another Year of Show Hopping
by Stephen Hanks - Dec 26, 2014

If you've been a regular reader of this particular reviewer's musings, you know that every year there are long stretches of time where I just haven't been able to critique all the shows I've seen that deserve commentary. So I end up playing what they call in sports, 'Catch-up ball,' and post a mash up of belated reviews from past shows. It's kind of like a critic's version of the song 'Six Months Out of Every Year,' from Damn Yankees. Give or take a month or two, that's usually the time period during which I store unpublished reviews in my fevered brain and then unload them all in one seemingly endless column-like this one is going to be. If my cabaret-show reviewing days will be over (as chronicled here), I might as well go out with a bang-and relieve my procrastination guilt during holiday season. Now I can scratch one New Year's resolution off the list. (more...)
