by Stephen Hanks - Jan 20, 2016

After BroadwayWorld launched its New York Cabaret Awards in 2012, the cabaret section's editors realized that the selected categories and the popular vote nature of the election didn't adequately recognize some great performances and shows for that particular year. So in 2013, BWW added "Editor's Choice Awards" to the mix to not only reward special performances but also to acknowledge people who have helped grow cabaret and foster the spirit of the art form. This year, BWW New York Cabaret Editor Stephen Hanks and his reviewing staff-including Alix Cohen, David Clarke, Billie Roe, Rembert Block, and John Hoglund-selected seven stars of cabaret for this special honor. Now that the Awards for 2015 performances and shows are official, we wanted to tell you a bit about this year's "Editor's Choice Award" winners and offer them a chance to thank the New York cabaret community. Congratulations to all these worthy Award recipients. (more...)

Fotos! GRAND HOTEL holt Berlin der goldenen Zwanziger nach LinzFotos! GRAND HOTEL holt Berlin der goldenen Zwanziger nach Linz
by Iris Moebius - Jan 18, 2016

Die Urauffuhrung der Musicaladaption GRAND HOTEL am Broadway 1989 war mit uber 1000 Vorstellungen sensationell erfolgreich. Choreograf und Regisseur Tommy Tune war wesentlich an der ungewohnlichen Form des Musicals beteiligt. Szenen fließen ineinander und uberkreuzen sich wie die Lebenswege der Figuren; musikalisch wird das Stuck zusammengehalten durch eine symphonische Partitur, die sich an die Musik der Zeit anlehnt. Eleganz, Witz und Emotionalitat charakterisieren den Stil dieses Musicals, das keine Abfolge von Szene, Song, Tanznummer kennt, sondern ein fließendes Ganzes ist. Wir haben hier einige Fotos der Produktion, deren Premiere am vergangenen Samstag stattfand. Vorstellungen laufen vorerst noch bis April, sind aber derzeit komplett ausverkauft. (more...)

Based on his best selling memoir, Lee Tannen's funny, bitter-sweet play, which gets its UK premiere in a four-week season at Jermyn Street Theatre from Tuesday 2 - Saturday 27 February, reveals the real-life Lucy and what is was like being her friend to the end. Most people who wrote about Lucy never even met her. They relied on others to fill in the blanks. Lee relied solely on Lucy. And he paints a rich personal portrait that can only add to our love of a legend. (more...)
