A true theatrical event, this legendary masterpiece is considered by many to be the greatest musical ever created.brbrThe time is 1971, and theatrical impresario Dimitri Weissmann (famous for his garish Weissmann Follies of yesteryear) hosts a reunion of ex-Follies performers in his crumbling theatre, setting the stage for a parade of brilliant '20s, '30s and '40s pastiche numbers that have become every bit as famous as their models: "Losing My Mind," "I'm Still Here" and "Broadway Baby," to name a few. Amid the reminiscing, two middle-aged couples confront some unpleasant truths about their past and present and come face to face with the future.brbrSurreal, sophisticated, compelling, heart-wrenching and epic in scope, "Follies" uses the musical theatre as a metaphor for the collapse of American innocence and naivete in the post-Kennedy years. It is a showcase for powerful dramatic actors, featuring a large cast rich in character, which provides opportunities for seasoned older performers.

BWW Feature: Broadway Knows how to Celebrate Birthdays; 10 Birthday Showtunes!BWW Feature: Broadway Knows how to Celebrate Birthdays; 10 Birthday Showtunes!
by Matt Tamanini - Jun 29, 2015

My birthday this year took on extra significance, as the Supreme Court of the United States selected that day to rule that all people had an equal and unalienable right to marry whomever they wanted, regardless of gender. While normally a day to indulge in extreme selfishness, I am quite pleased to cede the importance of June 26th from a celebration of my birth to that of love and compassion for all people. Hopefully Derek Jeter, Ariana Grande, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, and Chris O'Donnell are all on board as well. Despite long considering myself a LGBTQ ally, I am now going to turn this feature back to being about my birthday (because I already had the songs chosen before SCOTUS ruled). So, this month, I am taking over sole duties that I normally share with Jeff Walker, and composing a list of 10 showtunes all about births and birthdays. Feel free to chime in on Twitter (@BWWMatt) or in the comments below with any others you would like to add to the list. (more...)

Linda Roth returns for another memorable cabaret. Linda's appearances in Follies, Sunset Boulevard, The Great One and as the spirited Trudy in last year's Christmas at Lazarus, make her a favorite performer at Short North Stage. So have her several cabarets, most recently 'The Apple Doesn't Fall' with Johnny Steiner and her daughter Allison. We are delighted to welcome her back as she takes her audience through an evening of some of her most embarrassing moments. Maybe This Time she can redeem herself!

BWW Reviews: Good People's MARRY ME A LITTLE Takes Pleasingly Gentle Approach with Sondheim RevueBWW Reviews: Good People's MARRY ME A LITTLE Takes Pleasingly Gentle Approach with Sondheim Revue
by Don Grigware - Jun 22, 2015

During the crazy broohaha of the Hollywood Fringe Festival, there are plenty of loud, over.the.top noisy shows, if that suits your pleasure. Sondheim's Marry Me a Little is a quiet, gentle little 60-minute musical revue that just doesn't fit that bill. And that's totally fine by me! I prefer Sondheim anyway. In Marry Me a Little, conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman Rene, many of the songs are from the then - late 90s - unproduced Saturday Night coupled with a multitude of songs cut from hits like Company, Follies, A Little Night Music and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. It's a two-person intimate show on the vast Lillian stage and as usual Janet Miller has staged the piece adeptly with lots of tender loving care. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Skylark Opera Offers Two Different but Equally Satisfying Music-Theater Shows in their Annual Summer FestivalBWW Reviews: Skylark Opera Offers Two Different but Equally Satisfying Music-Theater Shows in their Annual Summer Festival
by Jill Schafer - Jun 16, 2015

One of the theatrical highlights of the summer, Skylark Opera's Annual Summer Festival, is upon us! As usual, the two shows playing in repertoire include one that's more of a traditional opera (but always in English) and one that skews a bit more towards musical theater: Puccini's LA RONDINE and the Sondheim musical revue PUTTING IT TOGETHER (put together by Sondheim himself). As someone who loves musical theater but doesn't venture into the world of opera very often, Skylark's Summer Festival offers a fun, easy, accessible way to enjoy to dip my toes into the opera scene and indulge my love of musical theater. Both shows are highly entertaining with excellent casts and orchestras. But the runs are short with just four performances of each show. So read on, take your pick, and get your tickets before this all-too-brief Summer Festival is gone like the all-too-brief Minnesota summer! (more...)

BWW Reviews: FUNNY GIRL e l'ambizione della SDMBWW Reviews: FUNNY GIRL e l'ambizione della SDM
by Valeria Venturelli - Jun 16, 2015

Sabato 30 maggio si e concluso l'anno accademico della SDM - la Scuola Italiana del Musical con la messa in scena dello spettacolo 'FUNNY GIRL', per la prima volta in Italia, totalmente in lingua italiana grazie alla traduzione di Alice Mistroni. Puo sembrare una scelta azzardata da parte di un'accademia mettere in scena uno spettacolo di tale livello e fama, portato al successo grazie al film del 1968 che ha visto nel ruolo di Fanny Brice una spettacolare ed indimenticabile Barbra Streisand. E forse lo e stata, una scelta azzardata: per quanto impegno e tempo si sia speso, rimane comunque un saggio di fine anno e sicuramente una compagnia teatrale professionista avrebbe reso piu onore (avrebbe certamente avuto piu mezzi per farlo) ad questo spettacolo sacro della storia di Broadway. Ma personalmente apprezzo il rischio, mille volte 'Funny Girl' piuttosto dei soliti 'Cats' e 'Grease'. (more...)
