Lamplighters Music Theatre to Present CANDIDELamplighters Music Theatre to Present CANDIDE
by BWW News Desk - Nov 20, 2014

San Francisco's Lamplighters take Candide, his beloved Cunegonde, the absurdly optimistic philosopher Pangloss, and a virtual clown car of other eccentric characters on their picaresque journey around the world in search of the meaning of life. As classic in the realm of operetta as West Side Story is in the realm of American musical theatre, the British Royal National Theatre version of Candide, as adapted for the stage by Trevor Nunn and John Caird, is set to the sublime music of that quintessential modern American master, Leonard Bernstein, and the brilliant lyrics of Richard Wilbur and Stephen Sondheim.

BWW Interview: Victoria Clark Returns to Her PIAZZA Past at Pace University, Preps for GIGI at the Kennedy Center and More!BWW Interview: Victoria Clark Returns to Her PIAZZA Past at Pace University, Preps for GIGI at the Kennedy Center and More!
by Nicole Rosky - Nov 1, 2014

Before Victoria Clark returns to Broadway next season as 'Mamita Alvarez' in Gigi, she heads back to school as the artist in residence at Pace University. Clark directs The Light in the Piazza, the show for which she picked up a Tony Award in 2005, running through November 8 at the Loretto Theatre at The Sheen Center. The Light in the Piazza, by Adam Guettel and Craig Lucas, is based on the novella of the same name by Elizabeth Spencer. Taking place in Italy in the late summer of 1953, it is the story of an American woman Margaret Johnson, who travels to Florence with her daughter Clara, who falls in love with a young Florentine man. As details emerge about Clara's past, their trip turns out to be very much a romantic and psychological journey as Margaret must decide what is best for her daughter, her family, and for herself. The winner of six Tony Awards in 2005, The Light in the Piazza has become one of the great classics of the American Musical Theater, with its lush score and cliff-hanger story. Clark took the time out of her busy schedule to update BroadwayWorld on her adventures in directing, revisiting PIAZZA, preparing for GIGI and more. Check out the full interview below! (more...)

by David Clarke - Sep 29, 2014

Stephen Edwards' TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES, a musical adaption of Thomas Hardy's 1891 novel, is a musical that never found its proper footing. Prior to opening on the West End, the UK tour was met with positive reviews, but poor critical reception at London's Savoy Theatre saw the musical shutter faster than anyone anticipated. Yet, TESS still has life thanks to TESS OF THE D'URBERVILLES (Original Cast Recording). (more...)
