Exclusive: Moments in the Woods- Inside the INTO THE WOODS Original Cast Reunion at BAMExclusive: Moments in the Woods- Inside the INTO THE WOODS Original Cast Reunion at BAM
by Randy Rainbow - Jun 29, 2015

Can you believe it's been almost 28 years since the original production of Into the Woods opened on Broadway? Seems like only yesterday my mother was dragging a 6-year-old me, literally kicking and screaming, from below the marquee of the Martin Beck Theatre (now the Al Hirschfeld) to the Winter Garden Theatre where Cats was playing. (I wanted desperately to see Into the Woods, but a family 'friend' told my parents that Cats would be more appropriate for my age group. Thanks for ruining my life, lady.) In the right light, you can still to this day see my claw marks scraped along 45th Street. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Offering Her Take on the Elvis Costello Songbook, KAREN OBERLIN Reinvents HerselfBWW Reviews: Offering Her Take on the Elvis Costello Songbook, KAREN OBERLIN Reinvents Herself
by Alix Cohen - Jun 19, 2015

With her new show His Aim Is True: The Singular Songs of Elvis Costello at Stage 72 (second show last night), you'll meet the new Karen Oberlin. Gone are the controlled vibrato, upper range, emotional translucence, femininity, and the playfulness of a purveyor of American Songbook/pop. Prepare for a terse, tensile, alto-voiced, punk chick (including shag hairdo) with a foot in rudderless jazz. There's nothing tentative in this raw, almost tone poem-like performance. Oberlin commits herself to her choices. (more...)
