BWW Reviews: Audra McDonald Enchants at Wolf TrapBWW Reviews: Audra McDonald Enchants at Wolf Trap
by Emma Kouguell - Jun 24, 2015

An evening with - the only - six-time Tony Award recipient Audra McDonald is more than listening to her rich, versatile voice sing both older and more recent treasures. Ms. McDonald chooses songs that have strong stories both for her and within the song itself. Her ability to capture these narratives through her voice is one of the many reasons Ms. McDonald is such a brilliant actress and singer. The opportunity to see Ms. McDonald work her magic live is enchanting, to say the least. (more...)

Growing up listening to a vast array of music, my ear fell in love with the classics and one particular song entitled 'Summertime' touched my heart and ears. The Gershwin's music is a staple in the history of American Music, and I was ecstatic to see The Alley Theatre's production of GEORGE GERSHWIN ALONE. (more...)

by Billie Roe - Jun 22, 2015

When BroadwayWorld.com Cabaret Reviewer Billie Roe was invited to the CabaretFest 2015 Provincetown scheduled for June 4-7, it was to attend as a performer, not necessarily as a reviewer. But we couldn't resist the opportunity to have Billie at least report on some aspects of the long, event-filled weekend and record some of her impressions in something akin to a diary. Based on Billie's descriptive account here, this year's Cabaret Festival in Provincetown, MA, sounds like one of the cabaret highlights of the year. (more...)

Pacific Symphony Launches New Concert Programs for  Musician Innovation GrantPacific Symphony Launches New Concert Programs for Musician Innovation Grant
by BWW News Desk - Jun 20, 2015

Orange County, Calif.—June 18, 2015—Inspired by the creative minds and unique backgrounds of its musicians, Pacific Symphony and its Board of Directors awarded four orchestra members with a “Musician Innovation Grant” totaling $20,000 to fund new artistic projects. The grant's purpose is to give musicians the opportunity for original expression, creativity and experimentation, with the goal of serving new communities and developing new or deeper interest in classical music. These four chamber music performances explore such diverse themes as obsession, synesthesia, suppressed musical treasures of the 20th century, as well as classical and Broadway music. Taking place from June through next season, each of the events is free or low-cost to attend and features a chamber ensemble of Symphony musicians and outside artistic collaborators. For more about these projects and Pacific Symphony, call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org. (more...)

BWW Reviews: American Ballet Theatre's SLEEPING BEAUTYBWW Reviews: American Ballet Theatre's SLEEPING BEAUTY
by Barnett Serchuk - Jun 17, 2015

Remember history class in high school? The teacher presented a lecture and told us how exciting a certain historical period had been, going on to incessantly bore us because we had no recourse other than to take indecipherable notes we couldn't understand later, finally coming to the conclusion that history was, and always would be, a painstaking bore, better consigned to the college professors we were bound to meet sooner or later on our educational journey to adulthood and, hopefully, a job. That's very much what I thought about the American Ballet Theater's new production of Alexei Ratmansky's 'Sleeping Beauty.' I hate to sound churlish, but so much ink, not to mention so many dollars, have been lavished on this production, that, beyond some more extra performances and, probably, a showing on Great Performances, it will disappear within two years. At least it will be in the archives for future generations to watch. (more...)
