BWW Reviews: STRIKING 12 Takes You on a Unique and Entertaining JourneyBWW Reviews: STRIKING 12 Takes You on a Unique and Entertaining Journey
by Don Grigware - Dec 9, 2014

Loud repetitious music usually is a turnoff to me, in spite of the fact that the rock and roll of the 60s and 70s constitutes a large part of my musical background. I grew up listening to it and like much of it, but in later years have narrowed my preferences to pop standards, jazz and Broadway fare, which always make me happy. Although Irish, I have learned to love Celtic music more recently; since Once, I have become increasingly enamored of that sound especially at Christmas. When you add violin to keyboard, drums and guitar, as do the creators of Striking 12, now in its Orange County premiere at the Laguna Playhouse through December 28, you get that joyful sound loud and clear, and that plus the brilliance of the four musicians/actors (Brent Schindele ...

THE CONNECTICUT CABARET THEATRE PRESENTS The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee A Musical Comedy by Rachel Sheinkin Music and Lyrics by William Finn Directed by Kris McMurray November 28th thru January 17th, 2015 (No Performances December 26-27 and January 2-3) Join an eclectic group of six awkward adolescents and their proctors, as they work through a daunting and hilarious spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing amusing and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul crushing, pout inducing, life un-affirming 'ding' of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. A delight for young and old and it is worthy of much A-P-P-L-A-U-S-E. Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book (more...)
