Tribute to The Carpenters with Vocalist Michelle Whited Comes to Spencer TheaterTribute to The Carpenters with Vocalist Michelle Whited Comes to Spencer Theater
by BWW News Desk - Jan 31, 2017

Spot-on phrasing and soothing, sultry tones made Karen Carpenter's voice so categorically unique that it's been considered matchless - that's until Michelle Whited came along. So ideally does this San Francisco-based singer capture Karen's singular style, and pitch-perfect angelic sound that it's much like a virtual reincarnation of the late music star. (more...)

BWW Review: Powerful THE CHILDREN'S HOUR at The GammBWW Review: Powerful THE CHILDREN'S HOUR at The Gamm
by Andria Tieman - Jan 19, 2017

Lillian Hellman's THE CHILDREN'S HOUR is a classic play, which premiered in 1934 and is just as timely and relevant today.  The Gamm's production is a near-flawless retelling of this disturbing story about how much words matter and how the power of a lie can have repercussions far greater than expected.  The intricate and methodical script comes to life under the talents of Madeleine Lambert and Gamm resident actor Karen Carpenter and as two women who run an all-girls boarding school and find themselves with a pupil who seeks to destroy anything that gets in the way of her agenda.

Jim Caruso's Sixth Day of Christmas... Get Jolly with the Carpenters!Jim Caruso's Sixth Day of Christmas... Get Jolly with the Carpenters!
by BWW News Desk - Dec 18, 2016

This ravishing song has an interesting history. The lyric was written in 1946 by a nineteen-year old Frank Pooler, as a gift to a girlfriend he was missing. Twenty years later, a nineteen-year old Richard Carpenter set it to music. In four years, this recording by The Carpenters went to #1, which it did for three consecutive holiday seasons. It sounds as fresh today as it did in 1970, partly because of Richard's lush arrangement and backup vocals, and that famous tenor sax solo. But honestly, it's all about Karen. For my money, Karen Carpenter had one of the warmest and truest voices in the history of popular music. Sometimes the universe makes a terrible mistake and we lose someone way too soon…long before they've finished. That's how I feel about Karen Carpenter. (more...)
