Relief came from an unlikely source: A distant cousin sent Carroll a bundle of letters that he was planning to throw away if Carroll didn't want them. Carroll accepted the gift and was inspired by the contents - letters from wartime and letters sent from combat half a world away. (more...)

BWW Review: At Metropolitan Room, Singing Raconteur Eric Yves Garcia Gets Down and Revealing While Pouring Out Spirits and Stories From His Piano Bar Days
by Remy Block - Nov 16, 2015

Eric Yves Garcia has stepped away from the piano. I repeat, stepped away from the piano. The performer strides into the center stage light, his dark eyes twinkling, his jaw defined by just the right amount of stubble. This guy could be a movie star. I was excited.

If anything, the show's politics and humor have been heightened in this iteration, thanks largely to its sensational cast. (more...)
