BWW Review: HEATHER LUNDSTEDT O'NEILL Nails LOESSER KNOWN HitsBWW Review: HEATHER LUNDSTEDT O'NEILL Nails LOESSER KNOWN Hits
by Don Grigware - May 24, 2016

Loesser Known: The Stories and Songs of Frank Loesser premiered at Sterling's Upstairs at the Federal Sunday May 22 with lovely singer Heather Lundstedt O'Neill doing the honors. Lundstedt O'Neill has a beautiful, classically trained soprano voice that she utilizes supremely, lending her an awesome range. She also possesses a wonderfully delicious sense of humor that added so very much to this, her first LA cabaret appearance. She sang lesser known as well as hit songs from the Frank Loesser Songbook and told brief stories about his family and career....but concentrated more on the singing. Joining her were The Beverly Belles, friends Tiffany and Leah for one song and also guest star Jonathan Hawkins who performed one duet with Lundstedt. Sensational musical director John Boswell was at the piano and Randy Landas on bass throughout the 75 minute set.  (more...)

BWW Review: The Roxy Regional Theatre's AMERICAN IDIOT is Electrifyingly ImmersiveBWW Review: The Roxy Regional Theatre's AMERICAN IDIOT is Electrifyingly Immersive
by Jeffrey Ellis - May 10, 2016

As exhilaratingly in-your-face as only the very best of contemporary theater can deliver, Green Day's American Idiot - now onstage in a startlingly emphatic and exuberant production at Clarksville's Roxy Regional Theatre - exemplifies just how far the company itself has come since its beginnings as a community theater.

BWW Review: Ann Hampton Callaway's Ardent BUT BEAUTIFUL Thrills BirdlandBWW Review: Ann Hampton Callaway's Ardent BUT BEAUTIFUL Thrills Birdland
by Alix Cohen - May 6, 2016

I don't know when Ann Hampton Callaway started this chapter of her life, but she's emphatically in a new one. The artist savors every note, propelled headlong into her songs with uncommon exuberance. Signature authority extends not only to stellar scat but to enacting selected material. Accompanied by The Ted Rosenthal Trio (Ted Rosenthal, piano; Martin Wind, bass; Tim Horner, drums), Callaway shines luminous at Birdland (where I saw her latest show Wednesday night and which continues for two more shows Friday and Saturday night at 8:30 and 11 pm).
