BWW Review: THE PHANTOM TOOL BOOTH at Ensemble TheatreBWW Review: THE PHANTOM TOOL BOOTH at Ensemble Theatre
by Roy Berko - Jan 16, 2017

Much like Lewis Carroll's ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND and L. Frank Baum's THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF OZ, Norton Juster's THE PHANTOM TOLL BOOTH is a fantasy adventure. All three are perceived as tales for children, but, in reality, though they are intended to teach youngsters, the messages are often so complex that they go over the heads of their intended audience.

When Betty Nichols was about 12 years old, she came down with rheumatic fever, and the treatment in rural Carbon County more than seven decades ago was to send people with the illness to bed for three months. That was the typical prescription, but awfully boring for a young child. (more...)

BWW Review: Michael Feinstein Salutes Judy Garland at His Annual Holiday ShowBWW Review: Michael Feinstein Salutes Judy Garland at His Annual Holiday Show
by Alix Cohen - Dec 17, 2016

'For 47 years, the world of entertainment was blessed with a force of nature called Judy Garland,' Michael Feinstein begins, 'and for Judy, it all began at MGM.' As the artist takes his time with Arthur Schwartz/Howard Dietz's 'That's Entertainment,' screens on either side of the stage show clips from the film of the same name deftly edited to reflect every lyric. A coda of special material makes 'star' recognition even more specific. In Feinstein's A HOLIDAY TO REMEMBER at Feinstein's/54 Below, we hear songs from Garland's films and appearances, some iconic, others less known. Despite a life of trials, we're told, the performer left a legacy of optimism and joy. She had a quick-witted sense of humor, especially about herself. On one occasion, when Lucille Ball was praised for her humor, she responded that it was scripted, while Judy Garland's was spontaneous. The show is peppered with illuminating anecdotes. (more...)

A Philadelphia native, Ginsburg has enjoyed a varied career on both coasts prior to coming to Cabrillo.
