BWW Interview: Finding Authenticity in RunyonlandBWW Interview: Finding Authenticity in Runyonland
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Jul 6, 2017

'It's a warhorse and has been a guaranteed sellout since 1950, but that doesn't mean a production doesn't need a little spark. DJ [Salisbury] did exactly what I asked him to do,' says Maine State Music Theatre's Artistic Director Curt Dale Clark. 'I asked him not to reinvent the wheel, but to tweak the show with some new nuances.' Clark is talking about MSMT's new production of Guys and Dolls which opened last week to glowing reviews. Clark was part of the popular MSMT community series, PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN panel that also featured Guys and Dolls stars, James Beaman (Nathan Detroit), Kristen Hahn (Sarah Brown), and Stephen Mark Lukas (Sky Masterson), as well as Props Master Elizabeth Frino. Moderated by Broadway World's Maine editor Carla Maria Verdino-Sullwold, the participants at the capacity-crowd event discussed the making of this exciting new production in Midcoast Maine.

BWW Interview: Stephen Mark Lukas: Chemistry?...Yeah, Chemistry!BWW Interview: Stephen Mark Lukas: Chemistry?...Yeah, Chemistry!
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Jun 24, 2017

'There's this line in the show that I think is key to understanding Sky and Sarah's romance. 'Chemistry?' she asks, and he says, 'Yeah, chemistry.' The message is that when that connection between two people happens, it doesn't really matter what you've predicted for yourself. What's real is the chemistry, not the intellectual idea. Sky Masterson and Sarah Brown each have qualities the other is lacking, and together they fill in the gaps.' The speaker is the charismatic young actor, Stephen Mark Lukas, who will be making his Maine State Music Theatre debut in his first ever performances as the suave gambler Sky Masterson in Frank Loesser Guys and Dolls, which runs at the Pickard Theater from June 28-July 15.

BWW Review: The National Ballet of Canada's A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE is Breathtaking From Start to FinishBWW Review: The National Ballet of Canada's A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE is Breathtaking From Start to Finish
by Taylor Long - Jun 5, 2017

No one yells 'Stella!' at the ballet - because they don't have to. John Neumeier's A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, inspired by the Pulitzer Prize winning play by Tennessee Williams, had its National Ballet of Canada premiere on June 3, 2017. The ballet dives deeper into Blanche DuBois' psyche, examining the motivation for her psychological instability. Featuring music by Sergei Prokofiev and Alfred Schnittke, Mr. Neumeier's choreography exposes more vulnerability, fragility and desire than could ever be communicated by words alone. Neumeier's visionary production expands on the context referenced in Williams' play - by showing us more, we feel more. (more...)
