BWW Review: Cecsarini and Tramantano Master the Legend in Next Act's BRAVO, CARUSO!BWW Review: Cecsarini and Tramantano Master the Legend in Next Act's BRAVO, CARUSO!
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Nov 23, 2015

In a backstage dressing room of New York's Metropolitan Opera, Enrico Caruso appears as David Cecsarini, Artistic Director of Next Act Theater. The company's perfectly paired production also features Christopher Tramantana as Caruso's faithful valet, Mario. In playwright William Luce's Bravo, Caruso!. the audiences recalls that even gifted performers face trials and tribulations. During this production, Caruso prepares for what will eventually be his final  performance, this time as the Rabbi Eleazar in the Met's La Juive on Christmas Eve, 1920, far away from where Caruso's heart desires to be, in Napoles, Italy, his homeland that he loves.

BWW Reviews: In LUCIA at the Met, Tenor Calleja Has the Last WordBWW Reviews: In LUCIA at the Met, Tenor Calleja Has the Last Word
by Richard Sasanow - Mar 23, 2015

The title role of Donizetti's LUCIA DI LAMMERMOOR was so important to star sopranos during the last half of the 20th century, that it's hard to recall that in Caruso's day, the tenor was the main attraction. I thought of that during the current performance of the opera at the met, with Russian soprano Albina Shagimuratova as the eponymous heroine and Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja as her beloved Edgardo. Well...the tenor is back. (more...)

BWW Reviews: MARK NADLER's 'Addicted To The Spotlight' at 54 Below Showcases Abundant Talent, Cleverly FramedBWW Reviews: MARK NADLER's 'Addicted To The Spotlight' at 54 Below Showcases Abundant Talent, Cleverly Framed
by Alix Cohen - Feb 19, 2015

When Mark Nadler, singing the iconic Irving Berlin song and Al Jolson standard 'Let Me Sing and I'm Happy,' strolls from the back of 54 Below to his rightful place center stage (accompanied by Nick Russo on banjo), he seems, in all respects, a jaunty, debonair thespian. The song is light, unembellished, infectious. What you're watching in truth is a state of the art ballistic missile unerringly headed for its target. 'My name is Mark and I'm a spotlightaholic.' Tonight Nadler celebrates two 'out of control' spotlightaholics--Danny Kaye and Al Jolson--both of whom put themselves (and kept themselves) in front of audiences every available moment. (The artist designates himself as a 'functional' sufferer of the compulsion.) Memorable anecdotes enlighten and entertain. 'In the spirit of Kaye and Jolson, however, this show is all about ME.' Four decades in, Nadler calls show business his religion. Judging by ensuing narrative, his zealous devotion is, in context, worthy of sainthood. (more...)
