BWW Reviews: HEPBURN SINGS! @ MACHABWW Reviews: HEPBURN SINGS! @ MACHA
by Don Grigware - Jun 8, 2010

In a thoroughly engrossing and original piece, actor Kevin Dulude portrays Katharine Hepburn in selected highlights throughout her long career. Each segment includes a song from that time period, which though Hepburn never sang originally, adds mysteriously fascinating luster to the Hepburn mystique. If she had recorded an album of these songs, each would punctuate to perfection a feeling, mood or opinion that was undeniably Hepburn.This portrayal is not an impersonation, mind you, but a loving and moving tribute - both humorous and poignant - and, remarkably well etched.

InDepth InterView: Donna McKechnie - Part IInDepth InterView: Donna McKechnie - Part I
by Pat Cerasaro - Jun 18, 2010

Today, I am sharing with you Part I of my exclusive InDepth InterView with legendary Broadway star Donna McKechnie who is perhaps best known as the genius director- choreographer Michael Bennett's muse and primary interpreter as well as the originator and inspiration for the character of Cassie in A CHORUS LINE - for which she won Best Actress In A Musical at the 1976 Tony Awards - in addition to her many roles on Broadway and the West End, as well as all over the country on tours of every kind over the years. In Part I of this comprehensive chat we discuss her earliest featured roles on Broadway, working on the groundbreaking COMPANY and her thoughts on collaborators Bennett, Sondheim and Hal Prince; as well as her thoughts on the current state of Broadway, the out-of-town experience in the Golden Age and creating Cassie in A CHORUS LINE. Plus, of course, we discuss her fantastic new show and much, much more! (more...)

BWW Reviews: Sally Kellerman - A Jazz Hot Baby @ Vitello'sBWW Reviews: Sally Kellerman - A Jazz Hot Baby @ Vitello's
by Don Grigware - Jul 3, 2010

Academy-Award nominated actress/singer Sally Kellerman presented her cabaret act 'Blues & Jazz!' as a sort of CD party for Sally Wednesday June 30 @ Vitello's in Studio City. What a knockout! This lady knows her way around a tune and knows how to envelop her audience. Spontaneous from the getgo, she oozes sensuality from every pore - still intact after 40 some odd years - and utilizes her smoky voice to its greatest advantage, whether she's crooning the jazz of Cole Porter or Chris Caswell. She's fun, makes fun of herself and plucks every ounce of meaning from each and every lyric. I've always said the best actresses make the best singers, because when they love the material and put their soul into it, it traverses the Footlights. She's one-of-a-kind! (more...)
