BWW Review: From One Sandy Shore to Another, Neil Simon's Journey Triumphs at APABWW Review: From One Sandy Shore to Another, Neil Simon's Journey Triumphs at APA
by Kristen Morale - Aug 31, 2015

Imagine that you are a fifteen year old living in the midst of the Great Depression, living in tight quarters with both your immediate family and a few relatives, with every dollar earned considered precious and vital to getting through each passing day. If this were the case for any of us, it would be difficult to think of anything else except the awful plight that fate seems to have bestowed upon a rather undeserving group of people - a plight that involves all those who are merely trying to survive. Having this as a reality for anyone would be disheartening enough, but watching such a story unfold on stage in the Academy of Performing Arts' production of Neil Simon's Brighton Beach Memoirs is fascinating, as Simon's fairly autobiographical story does not only revolve around the immediate difficulties of the escalating war in Europe and America's current financial situation, but the narrative does a wonderfully heart-wrenching job of making the story of one Brooklyn family so personal. Each member of the family faces his or her own issues, some immediate and some brewing for years, but with each problem is the family ultimately brought together; the journey it collectively takes to get there is what makes this first installment of Simon's trilogy so riveting to watch.

by Ellen Burns - Aug 29, 2015

There are many gifted vocalists in this world (more about that later) and many gifted vocalists with charming personalities, but the sheer volume of gift and charm packed into the diminutive Kristin Chenoweth is a wonder to behold. She can sing, my word, can she sing, but when she is on stage, as last night at Wolf Trap, what particularly strikes you is her openness, sincerity and ease with herself and her audience. Chenoweth is a generous performer, warmly sharing the stage with local DC artists and musicians, and her music director, Mary-Mitchell Campbell, a talented vocalist in her own right. (more...)
