BWW Interviews: Greg White Talks FLIPSIDE: THE PATTI PAGE STORY
by David Clarke - Oct 08, 2013

FLIPSIDE: THE Patti Page STORY is taking to the road. In anticipation of the production's Texas stops, I chatted with writer and director Greg White about the show. He explains, 'It's not a revue. It's her story,' and that the show itself is 'funny and very poignant.' He also told me that the show has a little something for everyone. After all, 'they call Patti [Page] Country-politan. She was one of the first crossover artists that did country, jazz, and pop. Believe it or not she did some R&B. Patti did everything.' (more...)

Mickey Gilley to be Inducted Into AMERICA'S OLD TIME COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME
by BWW News Desk - Jul 01, 2013

1976 was a big year for the National Traditional Country Music Association,' says Bob Everhart, current president of the organization. 'That was the year of its founding, and it has been running continuously ever since. It conducts the upper Midwest's most successful festival of early American country, bluegrass, folk, mountain, hillbilly, and western music. There's lots of labels and genres to describe 'country' music, but we are pretty much in the time-frame before it became what it is today. Thirty-eight years is a long time to keep any kind of event going, and to see Mickey Gilley one of the best known country music piano players ever, to become one with America's Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame, is indeed a recognition of the importance of the roots of country music. Mickey Gilley's most prestigious year was that same year the NTCMA was founded, 1976, when the Academy of Country Music awarded him with Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year, Single of the Year, Song of the Year, Top Male Vocalist of the Year, and Music City News proclaimed him the Most Promising Male Artist of the Year. 1976, bicentennial year celebration of the birth of America. Amazing isn't it, that in 2013, 38 years later, this same man, Mickey Gilley, will be inducted into this kind of Hall of Fame, that emanates from rural America.' (more...)

The 1950s: Below the Surface
by Roundabout Theatre Company - Jan 24, 2013

Mention of the 1950s is likely to inspire images of housewives rolling out pie dough, sock hops, white picket fences, and teenagers sitting in malt shops. However, we often forget that the '50s weren't all about Doris Day and "Leave It to Beaver". It was also the era of rock'n'roll music and the Beat Generation. This is the reality that the characters of William Inge'sPicnic inhabit. They may have a fenced-in yard, but it's wildly unkempt. Teenagers may drive off to the malt shop, but they're doing a lot more driving than they're telling their parents about. (more...)

InDepth InterView: John Waters Talks HAIRSPRAY: IN CONCERT, HAIRSPRAY 2, Favorite Movie Musicals & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Jan 19, 2013

Today we are talking to the proud "Pope Of Trash" himself - the iconic writer/director of such seminal cinematic entries as cult classics PINK FLAMINGOS, FEMALE TROUBLE, DESPERATE LIVING, HAIRSPRAY, CRY BABY, SERIAL MOM, CECIL B. DEMENTED, A DIRTY SHAME and many more - the one and only John Waters. Packing a characteristically caustic conversation into a relatively brief time slot was no trouble for Waters, for he and I cover a wide range of topics, from his favorite 2012 films to his all-time favorite movie musicals and much more. Most importantly, Waters discusses his process in adapting the hit Tony Award-winning stage property HAIRSPRAY into concert form and what we can expect from his newly-penned narration and role as narrator in the live Baltimore Symphony Orchestra presentation of HAIRSPRAY: IN CONCERT on January 24. Additionally, Waters expounds on his experiences creating the original HAIRSPRAY film and how it compares to both its musical sister, as well as the hit 2007 feature film adaptation of it (in which he makes a cameo appearance as - what else? - "the flasher who lives next door"). Plus, Waters opens up about the plot and themes of HAIRSPRAY 2: WHITE LIPSTICK, a project he was commissioned to create a few years ago as a new film project but which is currently on hold indefinitely. All of that, filming the remarkable 2012 horror film EXCISION, memories of the recently deceased Patti Page and the unforgettable use of the Bob Merrill pop earworm "How Much Is That Doggie In The Window" at the grand finale of PINK FLAMINGOS, an update on his children's film project, FRUITCAKE, as well as details about his new book and what we can expect from Waters in 2013 insofar as personal speaking engagements go - and, how Justin Bieber is the new Shirley Temple. All of that and much, much more awaits! (more...)
