A Grand Slam for Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops
by Joseph F. Panarello - May 5, 2009

Summertime. To many people it means that the fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high. To others it means plenty of sun, surf and sand. Yet to another faction of the world's population, summertime means participation in America's favorite pastime: baseball, where peanuts and Crackerjacks reign supreme and the crack of a bat sends shivers of excitement down even the most jaded spine. Keith Lockhart, the conductor of the world renowned Boston Pops Orchestra, falls into the latter category. The handsome maestro is an avid baseball fan and has been since his youth. (more...)

BWW Reviews: DCLO Delights with THE PAJAMA GAME
by Don Grigware - Jun 5, 2012

50s musicals were known for their levity and hit tunes, not for substance, so when a musical such as The Pajama Game had something to say to working class America about standing up and fighting for what they're due, it highly appealed to a middle-class audience... without really meaning to, it served as a precursor of meatier shows to follow in the decades ahead. Of course, Pajama Game is still light... and romantic - it's what audiences craved - with Babe (Karen Volpe) and Sid (Michael Dotson) finding romance and true love while they duke out their differences as labor and management. Now in a pleasantly gleeful production at DCLO (Downey Civic Light Opera) a joyously tuneful piece of nostalgia lives on, as just that - nostalgia, as it does belong to another time and place!
