by John Hoglund - Apr 25, 2015

Any seasoned entertainment pro will tell you that the key to success on a stage is keeping your audience happy. It also helps to throw in a bevy of show-stopping songs, parodies, and raucous tongue-in-cheek laughter along the way. Those make up only a few of the ingredients offered in the ongoing Judy and Liza: Together Again show at Don't Tell Mama (now in its fourth year) starring Tommy Femia and Rick Skye. (more...)

BWW Editorial: italiani, ma davvero avete ancora voglia di vedere 'Grease'?BWW Editorial: italiani, ma davvero avete ancora voglia di vedere 'Grease'?
by Francesco Vittorino - Apr 16, 2015

'Grease' e senza dubbio uno degli spettacoli piu amati dagli italiani. Ogni anno, o giu di li, salta fuori una grossa produzione di questo musical e almeno un centinaio di produzioni piccole. E ogni volta la gente e estasiata all'idea di risentire per la millesima volta 'Summer nights' o 'You're the one that I want'. Sara che come spettacolo non mi e mai piaciuto, e se qualche volta riesco a sopportare il film e solo grazie a uno straordinario John Travolta (o di un formidabile Flavio Bucci?), ma non ho mai capito le ragioni di questo amore viscerale.

by Remy Block - Apr 9, 2015

While the frat boys parked their boozy asses in the bar car (aka the couch) for the long road to the NCAA's Final Four over the past few weeks, NYC's village cabaret club The Duplex offered an alternative "March Madness": Cabaret shows about being crazy. As a devotee of time on a different sort of couch, I was drawn in to three separate performances--from Michael Shea, Stacie Koby, and Amber Petty--seeking some music therapy to get me through the tail end of a long winter.
