BWW Reviews: Usually Marvelous LAUREN FOX Missteps With New Show Chronicling Groupies Who Bedded and/or Inspired Rock LegendsBWW Reviews: Usually Marvelous LAUREN FOX Missteps With New Show Chronicling Groupies Who Bedded and/or Inspired Rock Legends
by Alix Cohen - May 21, 2015

With her new show at the Metropolitan Room that opened last night—Groupies: The Muses Behind the Legends of Rock & Roll--the usually smart and meticulous Lauren Fox (as evidenced by her shows that celebrated the music of Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen and later the Pop/Rock that emerged from Laurel Canyon in the 1960s) has here chosen questionable territory--the celebration of women who serially slept their way through the music business or, as Fox more poetically says, “Made it their life's mission to meet the beautiful boys who made the music that moved them.” Hook-ups are exemplified by often unappealing numbers (too much monotone) and bridged with quotes by groupies whose role as “muses” or sources of creative inspiration seems a stretch.

BWW Reviews: The Transcendent Voice of Ageless and Evergreen JUDY COLLINS Once Again Enchants Café CarlyleBWW Reviews: The Transcendent Voice of Ageless and Evergreen JUDY COLLINS Once Again Enchants Café Carlyle
by Alix Cohen - May 6, 2015

Judy Collins, who celebrated her 76th birthday on May 1, has been entertaining us for 56 years "not including childhood." A formidable contributor to the soundtrack of Boomer lives, her transcendent voice conjures memories like few others of any generation. Collins' current show at Cafe Carlyle (which opened last night and runs until May 16) mines familiar territory like evocative comfort food, including retold tales that sometimes go on too long. Many songs take on new coloring both vocally and in terms of changed context, i.e. that of a mature woman looking back. (more...)

by Alix Cohen - Apr 16, 2015

“Lover, when I'm near you . . .” sings the debonair Todd Murray this past Monday night at Birdland, mere feet away from rapt eyes into which he pours himself. He's performing the waltzy song acoustically, voice full out in opposition to lyric mood. The back of the house undoubtedly finds sound muted. “This is how you would've heard a band singer in 1925, before a new technique called 'crooning',” he tells us. “From the time I started working, they always called me a crooner.” (more...)
