BWW Review: Kristin Chenoweth Graces Wolf TrapBWW Review: Kristin Chenoweth Graces Wolf Trap
by Ellen Burns - Aug 29, 2015

She can sing, my word, can she sing, but when she is on stage, as last night at Wolf Trap, what particularly strikes you is her openness, sincerity and ease with herself and her audience. Chenoweth is a generous performer, warmly sharing the stage with local DC artists and musicians, and her music director, Mary-Mitchell Campbell, a talented vocalist in her own right. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Satiric, Sardonic SEDARIS at Wolf TrapBWW Reviews: Satiric, Sardonic SEDARIS at Wolf Trap
by Andrew White - Aug 5, 2015

Today, Sedaris' work isn't just published in the New Yorker, not just in book form, he is now in huge demand as a reader.

And yet here he stood at Wolf Trap Farm Park's main stage the other night, surrounded by adoring fans, his old-tech file folder and sheafs of paper in hand. We loved it. (more...)
