BWW Reviews: WE WILL ROCK YOU at PPAC Lives Up to Its Title
by Robert Barossi - Apr 16, 2014

It's not every rock band or musical act that could successfully create musical based on its many widely varying songs. There has to be a certain uniformity, power and resonance to the music, all of the music, carrying through many songs, rather than just one or two 'greatest hits.' And they have to be songs that can be strung together to create a cohesive whole that works as a musical with a plot, story, characters, etc. If there's any proof that it can be done, and done smashingly well, it's found in We Will Rock You, the 'rock theatrical' created through the combination of British writer Ben Elton and the music of Queen.

The Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble Presents Its Season Finale, 5/11
by BWW News Desk - Apr 15, 2014

Pacific Symphony Youth Wind Ensemble's season finale celebrates musical learning with programming that makes connections between classical and contemporary composers. The concert begins with two wind ensemble arrangements of Bach's music: “Who Puts His Trust in God Most Just” (arr. James Croft), originally a chorale for four parts, and “Fugue in G Minor” (arr. Lucien Calliet), a masterful combination of counterpoint and Harmony. Next is Eric Whitacre's “Sleep,” a smooth composition with drawn-out harmonies inspired by Robert Frost's poem, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.” The concert concludes with Frank Ticheli's Symphony No. 2, which was composed in 2003 as a tribute to James Croft, director of bands at Florida State University. Its movements—“Shooting Stars,” “Dreams Under a New Moon” and “Apollo Unleashed”—are an evocation of the heavens, tying back to the concert's first number, not just with the dedication to Croft, but with a brilliant finale that quotes the chorale work by Bach. Tickets are $12 with general admission seating. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Good Theater's UNDERWATER GUY Lifts Performance Art to the Poetic
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Apr 14, 2014

Portland's Good Theater closed its season with a highly original and poetic premiere of Stephen Underwood's multi-media performance piece, Underwater Guy. Underwood's play uses video, music, lights, scenery, and a single actor/narrator to recount the protagonist's lifelong obsession with diving, underwater exploration and photography. Part documentary, part dramatic monologue with movement, the rapid shifts in the modes of communication prove stimulating, sometimes surprising, but always engaging. For in Underwood's play, water is more than a habitat or a passion; it is a metaphor for his life's journey, and as such, the piece takes on a deeper significance and resonance. (more...)
