STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 4/26/15- COMPANYSTAGE TUBE: On This Day for 4/26/15- COMPANY
by Stage Tube - Apr 26, 2015

Today in 1970, Company opened at the Alvin Theatre (now the Neil Simon Theatre), where it ran for 705 perfrmances. Company is a musical comedy based on a book by George Furth with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The original production was nominated for a record-setting fourteen Tony Awards and won six. Originally entitled Threes, its plot revolves around Bobby (a single man unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage), the five married couples who are his best friends, and his three girlfriends. Unlike most book musicals, which follow a clearly delineated plot, Company is a concept musical composed of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, linked by a celebration for Bobby's 35th birthday.

In 1975, filmmakers Albert and David Maysles brought their cameras into the crumbling, palatial estate of Edith Bouvier Beale (the aunt of Jackie Kennedy) and her daughter, Little Edie. There they found two women ostracized from their community, hanging on to reality by a thread, and surrounded by dozens of cats and raccoons. Grey Gardens, the Musical examines both the back-story of this fascinating family and the fate they couldn't possibly have imagined.

Ieri, dopo lunghe peripezie, sono finalmente riuscito a vedere 'INTO THE WOODS', il film di Rob Marshall tratto dall'omonimo musical di Stephen Sondheim e prodotto dalla Walt Disney. Che dire? Senza dubbio il libretto e la musica reggono piuttosto bene la pellicola, ma se si fosse trattato di un film qualsiasi direi che non mi ha trasmesso niente. (more...)

Circle Theatre to Present EVITA, 5/7-23Circle Theatre to Present EVITA, 5/7-23
by BWW News Desk - Apr 22, 2015

Starting off the Main Stage season in May of 2015 is the musical EVITA, running May 7 through 23. The subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice is Argentina's controversial First Lady, Eva Peron. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president's mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron 'saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military' was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself. (more...)
