BWW Review: AMERICAN DANCE MACHINE FOR THE 21ST CENTURY Captivates Audiences with Legendary Musical Theater NumbersBWW Review: AMERICAN DANCE MACHINE FOR THE 21ST CENTURY Captivates Audiences with Legendary Musical Theater Numbers
by Caryn Cooper - Dec 24, 2015

This past Monday marked the opening night of the American Dance Machine for the 21st Century (ADM21) as they returned to New York City. Founded and Produced by Artistic Director Nikki Feirt Atkins, ADM21 is dedicated to creating a living and vibrant archive of classic and current notable musical theater choreography. Continuing the legacy of the late Lee Theodore, who established the original American Dance Machine in 1976 until her death in 1987, and believed that "many great choreographic works are lost with the musical they once embellished," the impetus to preserve these dances drove Theodore and continues to drive Ms. Atkins.

by Peter Napolitano - Oct 5, 2015

This week, Mark Nadler made his solo television debut on WNET (New York/13) and WLIW (Long Island/21) in the latest installment of the new Public Television series 66th & Broadway (photo below). My friends, in the contemporary cabaret world, this is a BIG DEAL. Let's face it: When 100 people show up to a show on the same night it is an event, so the possibility of thousands (or--dare we dream--millions) of people watching Mr. Nadler perform in the comfort of their homes is beyond exciting. It is Cabaret Nirvana, Shangri-La, and Xanadu combined, the kind of exposure a cabaret artist dreams about but rarely receives. (more...)

Klazz-Ma-Tazz Release 'Tangibility'Klazz-Ma-Tazz Release 'Tangibility'
by BWW News Desk - Jul 23, 2015

Klezmer/Jazz fusion group Klazz-Ma-Tazz will release its debut album Tangibility on OneTrickDog* Records.  Founded by violinist and composer Benjamin Sutin, in 2014, Klazz-Ma-Tazz blurs the boundaries of labels and genres.  Rooted in the jazz idiom, the music reflects the influences of folk music from around the world, but particularly from the varied ethnic backgrounds of its band members: Klezmer and Balkan Folk music, Indian Classical Music, Native American Tribal Dance and English Folk Music, among others.  Tangibility is a musical journey that explores the unique chemistry of gifted musicians working to forge a new musical form. The resulting musical melting pot finds an authentic home and voice in a city that has always had its identity in the confluence of diverse cultures. The majority of the tracks on Tangibility are Sutin's original compositions. Tangibilty will be available for purchase September 1, on Bandcamp.com and iTunes.  (more...)
