CABARET LIFE NYC: Two Charming Young Women Performers--Carly Ozard and Nikki MacCallum--Conquer the Challenge of the Personalized Tribute Show at The Duplex
by Stephen Hanks - Jun 23, 2014

The biggest challenge in personalizing a tribute show is when the set list is structured to tell a story about the performer's life. Those songs better be good, that life better be interesting, and that storytelling patter better be clever, humorous, and self-deprecating or an audience (let alone a reviewer) will tune you out quicker than a liberal accidentally hitting FOX News on the remote. I recently saw two different shows at The Duplex from enchanting young women performers—Carly Ozard and Nikki MacCallum--who deftly managed to weave their love of a singer (Bette Midler for Ozard) or a songbook (Kander & Ebb for MacCallum) into a tale of life journey and personal growth to produce charming and entertaining shows.

JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR ist ab Oktober in Dortmund und Bonn zu erleben
by Iris Moebius - Jun 19, 2014

Der Erfolg der Urauffuhrung von Jesus Christ Superstar stand schon fest, bevor sich der Vorhang am 12. Oktober 1971 uberhaupt gehoben hatte; schließlich war die Rock-Oper vor ihrer szenischen Umsetzung bereits als LP ein Verkaufsschlager gewesen, und fur die Vorstellungen am Broadway gab es seit Wochen keine Karten mehr. Da konnte die Presse noch so heftige Verrisse schreiben, religiose Gruppen lauthals protestieren: Das Publikum feierte begeistert das erste abendfullende Werk des erst 21-jahrigen Andrew Lloyd Webber und seines wenig alteren Librettisten Tim Rice. Die temporeiche und beruhrende Inszenierung des Musicalspezialisten Gil Mehmert (The Full Monty) entstand in einer Koproduktion der Theater Bonn und Dortmund, und ist in der kommenden Spielzeit in beiden Theatern zu erleben. Die musikalische Leitung der Band ubernimmt Jurgen Grimm (Funny Girl). (more...)
