by BWW News Desk - Jan 18, 2017

KATIE GOODMAN'S "MID-LIFE CRISIS" TOUR comes to Feinstein's/54 Below, Broadway's Supper Club, today, January 18th at 7:00pm. Comedian and on-line celebrity, Katie Goodman, captivates her audience with her unique style of raw humor and gutsy original musical satire.

In the latest development of this ongoing battle, the hashtag #BoycottHamilton has been trending for the past six hours. Considering the fact that the musical juggernaut is sold out into next year, coupled with the recent Trump Cup 'boycott,' (which involves customers providing 'Trump' as their name when purchasing a drink at Starbucks), it remains unclear if the Trump supporters who instigated the hashtag understand how a boycott works.

The first annual HARVARD-YALE CANTATA at Feinstein's/54 Below, a musical competition modeled on the legendary boat race, was nothing short of electrifying. The sold-out show directed and produced by Tom Toce (Yale '78) was one of those evenings that make you grateful and happy to live in New York among so many brilliant and passionate artists. And if you happened to attend either school, it produced a particular pride in all that is wonderful about institutions fashionable to bash in an age of reverse snobbery. (Full disclosure: I graduated from Yale in 1995.) While the second CANTATA played to a slightly smaller crowd, the show featured songs by lyricists who have made lasting contributions to popular music in the 20th Century: Alan Lerner (H '40), Tom Lehrer (H '46 and MA '47), and John Forster (H '69). In more recent years, Cambridge and New Haven have produced Broadway composers such as Larry O'Keefe (H '91 HEATHERS, LEGALLY BLONDE) and Bobby Lopez (Y '97, BOOK OF MORMON, AVENUE Q, and songs from FROZEN), the youngest of only 12 people to win an Emmy, Tony, Grammy, and Oscar.
