Their struggles with debt, poverty and a Nun who they welcome into their lives is seen through the eyes of little 10 year old Carlo Morelli, a would-be writer, whose vocabulary consist mainly of four letter words. Playwright/Director Messina is best known for his work on the critically acclaimed, off-Broadway hits Mercury, about the life of rocker Freddie Mercury, and Cirque Jacqueline, about former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. He is also directing Richard Vetere's musical Be My Love, about the life of legendary tenor Mario Lanza, which is being produced by Sonny Grosso and Phil Ramone. The cast of A Room of My Own features Tony ?n Tina's Wedding stars Johnny Tammaro, Gina Ferranti, Chris DePierro, Gina Musumeci, and Carlo Rivieccio.

SOUND OFF Special Interview: Julie Reiber's LOVE TRAVELSSOUND OFF Special Interview: Julie Reiber's LOVE TRAVELS
by Pat Cerasaro - Aug 12, 2012

Today we are talking to a multi-talented performer who has performed on Broadway in everything from BROOKLYN to WICKED who made her most recent Broadway bows standing by in both ON A CLEAR DAY YOU CAN SEE FOREVER and PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT - the dynamic and compelling Julie Reiber. Talking all about her new solo album, LOVE TRAVELS, and its various inspirations as well as casting a look back at her many Broadway, touring and regional roles thus far in her eclectic career - ALL SHOOK UP, SWEENEY TODD and many more included - Reiber and I attempt to illustrate her unique place on Broadway and what she would like to pursue in the future, both on the stage and in the recording studio. Additionally, Reiber opens up about her exhaustive song selection process for LOVE TRAVELS and shares candid stories of the recording process of her solo debut, including providing some background on the songs that did not make the cut, how the sterling arrangements arose out of the material and the process of becoming a singer-songwriter in her own right over the project's three-year-long creation. Also, Reiber outlines her experiences performing in the out-of-town tryout of the new musical adaptation of Armistead Maupin's TALES OF THE CITY penned by rock super group Scissor Sisters and expresses her desire to continue with future iterations of the 70s-set Broadway-bound tuner as she looks ahead to her new roles of recording artist, and, also, she is happy to announce, mother. Plus, Julie offers details on her role in the heretofore little-known Meat Loaf-inspired movie musical ECLIPSE OF THE HEART (hopefully released some red moon soon), expresses her thoughts on GLEE and SMASH, compared Broadway now versus a decade ago - and much, much more!

Life is a 'Cabaret'?  Really?Life is a 'Cabaret'? Really?
by Trish Vignola - Apr 18, 2010

Unfortunately the Hypocrites production of 'Cabaret' was a bit hit or miss for my taste. This production just lagged. Were two intermissions really necessary? Also, the Hypocrites pride themselves on presenting a dark twist to the show. I don't know if they accomplished a new dark twist or not. After Rob Marshall's revival of Cabaret on Broadway back in the late 90's, it's kind of hard to reinvent the wheel after it's been on a luxury car. If before the 90's, everything was a pale homage to Joel Grey. After the 90's, everything was a pale homage to that revival. The similarities between this production and the Rob Marshall production were far too many to call this revolutionary. (more...)
