Wednesday night was the second of Marilyn Maye's first 54 Below run (which will continue until March 16) and she sashayed around the stage in front of an almost full house like a woman of 35. Like most of her shows, Maye's performance was a 'live' cabaret Master Class for budding cabaret performers and seasoned professionals alike, and this 'Maye-den Voyage' never went adrift (thanks in part to solid and unobtrusive support from Tedd Frith on piano, Tom Hubbard on bass, and Jim Eklof on drums).

FLASH SPECIAL: A Marvin Hamlisch MemorialFLASH SPECIAL: A Marvin Hamlisch Memorial
by Pat Cerasaro - Aug 8, 2012

One of the most revered and recognizable Broadway and Hollywood composers of the last fifty years passed away suddenly at the age of 68 yesterday - Marvin Hamlisch. Today we will celebrate his life with a collection of some of the most memorable and history-making clips culled from his many endeavors over his rich forty-year career. Carly Simon once comically recounted that when she first met Marvin Hamlisch on the day he played her what would become one of her biggest hits, the theme song for the 1977 James Bond film THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, "Nobody Does It Better", she had also arranged a meeting with a new lawyer and when she answered the door at her home "it was a toss-up" which would arrive first - it turned out to be Hamlisch, yet she didn't realize it until the unassuming figure sat down at the piano and began to play. Such was the relatability and likeability of not only the man, but his music, and, also, that story acts as a reminder of the folksiness for which Hamlisch was known by his many famous friends (Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand included) and one of the contributing factors to him becoming not only a respected, admired and highly-awarded composer and conductor, but also a household name along the lines of Leonard Bernstein, Richard Rodgers, Irving Berlin and Cole Porter; which came as a result of his apparent ubiquity in the 1970s, appearing everywhere from THE TONIGHT SHOW to the Academy Awards, Tony Awards, TV specials and beyond. Indeed, the 1970s were definitely Hamlisch's career peak, kicking off the decade in a big way by conducting LIZA WITH A Z, directed by Bob Fosse - the greatest TV concert ever, hands down. Of course, he had contributed solid work on Broadway (FUNNY GIRL, SEESAW) and in Hollywood (THE SWIMMER, TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN) from the age of 19 on when he got his first break after being discovered while playing piano at parties following his Juilliard graduation, but the 1970s were when Hamlisch mastered seemingly all mediums, all at once. Following his success scoring Woody Allen films and many others, arranging countless albums and concerts and capping it off with conducting LIZA WITH A Z, in 1973 Hamlisch quite quickly found Oscar gold with his Scott Joplin score adaptation for THE STING as well as his double-win that same night for original score and song for THE WAY WE WERE - having won three Oscars in one ceremony that evening, Hamlisch later made history again by going on to become only the second individual in history to be a PEGOT recipient (the other being Richard Rodgers); that is, he possessed the Pulitzer Prize, Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony - and, in 1975 he even managed to somehow top his own prior unprecedented success.

BWW Special Report: PIPPIN's Motown Magic Returns to BroadwayBWW Special Report: PIPPIN's Motown Magic Returns to Broadway
by Kevin Winkler - Apr 3, 2013

As an undergraduate theater major in the early 1970s, I heard music everywhere. It seemed to pour out of every office and workspace around the department. (And in the LP era, if you wanted more than the radio, this meant schlepping a twenty pound record player and a dozen or so albums from your home to the campus, sometimes requiring back-and-forth trips from the car. If you go to that much trouble, you want to keep the music playing.) In the hushed costume shop with its quietly industrious all female staff, Broadway ruled, with Stephen Sondheim's recent Company and Follies in heavy rotation. It was 'men only' in the scene shop where I listened to male balladeers like James Taylor and Gordon Lightfoot while unhappily working off assigned crew hours. Jazz classes (my favorites) in the dance department were conducted to the pre-disco sounds of Isaac Hayes and the Temptations. And late night cast parties were never complete without spins of Bette Midler's first two albums. (more...)
