by BWW News Desk - May 05, 2014

Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati closes out its 2013-2014 main stage season with the world premiere of Size Matters, a one-man show about every man's weight, written and performed by Raymond McAnally. Co-directed by Ed Stern and D. Lynn Meyers, Size Matters plays May 7-25, 2014.

Now, Mr. McAnally returns to Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati, having penned his own autobiographical one-man show where he will once again shift from himself to a myriad of other characters throughout the performance.

BWW Reviews: JANE MONHEIT & CLINT HOLMES Dazzlingly Deliver the Songs of Frank Wildhorn at Cafe Carlyle
by Stephen Hanks - Jan 31, 2014

Before the finale of Tuesday night's Café Carlyle show celebrating the varied compositions of Frank Wildhorn, the Grammy and Tony Award-winning composer quoted his frequent collaborator, lyricist Jack Murphy, as once offering that “Great singers are a songwriter's best friends.” Even though Murphy's thought is hardly original, no words could be more true after listening to the scintillating songstress Jane Monheit and the performing powerhouse Clint Holmes deliver 16 solid songs that but wouldn't exactly be called classic examples of what passes for the late 20th century Great American Songbook.

CABARET LIFE NYC: Boston's LYNDA D'AMOUR Deserves Move Love From the New York Cabaret Crowd
by Stephen Hanks - Aug 03, 2013

Given the insular and in-clubby world that is the New York cabaret scene (by nature, not by design), it can be a struggle for non-celebrity, out-of-town performers to generate an audience when they mount shows in Manhattan. One singer facing that dilemma is lovely, Boston-based Lynda D'Amour, a terrific talent who is popular in the Beantown area but hasn't built enough of a following in the Apple to pack a room. Her crowd was again sparse on Sunday afternoon July 28 for the opening of her new show, The Hungry Years (she'll be making the commute again on August 11 and 25, both at 4pm at Don't Tell Mama), which is a shame because D'Amour possesses a strong vocal instrument that would rank her among this area's most accomplished female singers if only she was a New Yawker.
