BWW Reviews: Il fantasma del Brancaccio: GHOST arriva a Roma!
by Nino Prattico - Jan 29, 2014

Non si puo dire che la stagione teatrale 2013-2014 non abbia una curiosa attrazione per il "paranormale". Dopo L'ULTIMA STREGA, il delizioso FANTASMI A ROMA e l'esilarante FRANKENSTEIN JUNIOR, le scene romane tornano a essere infestate da presenze ectoplasmatiche con un altro musical la cui trama prende le mosse dal confine tra l'aldiqua e l'aldila. Sto parlando di GHOST, l'ultimo sforzo produttivo di M.A.S. e Poltronissima S.r.l., gia reduci dai fasti di PRISCILLA, LA REGINA DEL DESERTO. Lo spettacolo, diretto da Stefano Genovese (gia regista di GYPSY, AVENUE Q e THE MISSION) e basato sull'omonimo successo cinematografico del 1990, si avvale delle musiche di Dave Stewart (ex membro degli Eurythmics) e Glen Ballard e del libretto firmato da Bruce Joel Rubin. Dopo il debutto londinese nel 2011, lo show si e trasferito a Broadway nel 2012 ricevendo, in entrambi i casi, una tiepida accoglienza. La critica newyorkese, con cui mi trovo d'accordo, lo ha definito un "giretto canoro e privo di emozioni in un parco a tema" che "fa per lo piu affidamento su scenografie video elaborate, modesti effetti speciali e la familiarita della storia d'amore fantasmatica." Altri hanno rincarato la dose affermando che "senza questi trucchi sbalorditivi, lo show non offrirebbe niente di che": lo script toppa, le musiche sono "innocue e dimenticabili" e alcuni numeri sembrano essere motivati solo dall'effetto visivo che provocano e non dal loro essere strettamente necessari all'economia dello spettacolo. È anche vero che, purtroppo, in Italia si ragiona secondo parametri ancora totalmente diversi - se non opposti - rispetto a quelli di Broadway. Pertanto, nella stesura della recensione, mi limitero a commentare la messinscena italiana senza far riferimento alle fallacie strutturali che questo spettacolo presentava gia a monte. (more...)

Ridgefield Playhouse to Welcome Ghost Whisperer James Van Praagh, 4/9
by BWW News Desk - Feb 11, 2014

Known as the original 'Ghost Whisperer' (the TV show that was based on his abilities and for which he was a consultant), the awe-inspiring James Van Praagh bridges the gap between two planes of existence, that of the living and that of the dead, by providing evidential proof of life after death via detailed messages. Since 2011, each of Van Praagh's annual visits to the Playhouse has sold out well in advance with audience members eager to witness his rare abilities. His very natural easy-going style would lead you to believe that Van Praagh is chatting with a friend on the telephone, not communicating messages from the grave. On Wednesday, April 9, at 7:30 p.m. at The Ridgefield Playhouse, he will demonstrate his unique talent and do what he does best -- select people from the audience to participate in the calling of the spirits in a one-night-only event. He will be signing copies of his books such as Unfinished Business, Ghosts Among Us and Growing Up in Heaven in the lobby after the show. Copies of the books can be purchased in the Playhouse lobby the evening of the event or at Books on the Common (404 Main Street, Ridgefield) prior to the show. This event is underwritten by Green Rocks Inn and is part of the Hamlet Hub A Whole New You Series with media sponsor i95.1fm The Home of Rock 'n' Roll. For dinner-and-a-show, Bernard's (22 West Lane, Ridgefield) is offering a special $45 prix-fixe menu, or a free glass of wine with dinner, before these events, when tickets are presented; reservations suggested beginning at 5 p.m. (more...)
