Jamaica is a musical with a book by Yip Harburg and Fred Saidy, lyrics by Harburg, and music by Harold Arlen. Harburg was blacklisted in Hollywood at the time of the writing of the musical. Set on a small island off the coast of Jamaica, the musical tells about a simple island community fighting to avoid being overrun by American commercialism.



Arlen's music parodies the popular form of Calypso, which was in vogue in the 1950s, largely as a result of the popularity of Harry Belafonte, for whom the musical was originally written. Belafonte withdrew from the production due to illness, and the musical was then tailored around the talents of Lena Horne.

Rose Gordon Releases MY LIFE AS AN OVER-COMER
by BWW News Desk - Sep 21, 2016

'My Life as an Over-comer': a phenomenal account of a life lived for God, filled with wonder and joy. 'My Life as an Over-comer' is the creation of published author, Rose Gordon, who was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and went through many struggles in her life. A single mother that raised three children on her own discovered that there is more to life when it's lived for God. Her testimony of how Jesus delivered her from depression, sicknesses, oppression, and loneliness, led her to share her story to others who are experiencing similar tests. Rose Gordon is a pastor, a prophetess, and a spiritual life coach. She wants both women and men from all over the world, single or married, with children or without children, to experience God for themselves because he is real. There's no limit to what the Lord can do in the lives of many who trust and believe in him. Rose Gordon is a living testimony. All the trials and temptations she has faced and overcome has molded her and shaped her into the woman that God wants her to be. Rose Gordon is an 'overcomer,' and she is also more than a conqueror. Up until this day, God continues to empower her to be all that he wants her to be in life. (more...)

BWW Review: Jeff Harnar Dazzles A Sold-Out Metropolitan Room With An Engaging Revival of His '1959 Broadway Songbook'
by Victoria Ordin - Aug 23, 2016

When a show at the Metropolitan Room starts over thirty minutes late because the staff is frantically trying to find chairs and room for the better part of New York's cabaret community, you know you're in store for something truly special. And unless there's a chair thief on the loose in Flatiron who doesn't like Broadway, someone clearly oversold this show and/or lost track of comps; this was extremely vexing with a heat advisory in effect. Still, the mood was festive in anticipation of Jeff Harnar's 1959 Broadway Songbook, the 12th installment in Stephen Hanks' impressive (and increasingly well-known) New York Cabaret's Greatest Hits series. Harnar's show premiered 25 years ago at the Algonquin's Oak Room. Two years later, PBS filmed the collaboration with musical director Alex Rybeck, whose arrangements honor the original compositions but reimagine them in sometimes astonishing ways, making them genuinely creative acts.

BWW Review: MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING Mixes Shakespeare's Classic Romantic Comedy with a Rockin' Song Score
by Shari Barrett - Aug 17, 2016

Director Gloria Gifford takes her job of inspiring upcoming stars in proper stage presentation, and above all, I must commend her for making sure each actor in MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING at TU Studios understood exactly what they were saying so audience members could not only understand the words but also what was being said in terms of the dialogue's meaning. It is the first production of the play in which I could get the meaning of each line, even though the words as written were foreign to modern English. Some of the actors shared with me that Gloria demanded their line presentation and stage movements make perfect sense, and the actors responded with great care. (more...)

BWW Review: In COCK TALES: Shame on Me! Debra Ehrhardt Honestly Shares Her Sexual Awakening
by Shari Barrett - Aug 15, 2016

Cock Tales: Shame on Me! the new and very personal play from Debra Ehrhardt, the award-winning solo artist and writer of the internationally acclaimed Jamaica Farewell, is a remarkably honest tale about how her repressed and very religious childhood was challenged by her discovery of boys' bodies before she was in her teens. Her 80-minute show is based on Ms. Ehrhardt's colorful history of a lifetime of encounters with a world full of testosterone-fueled gentlemen--and not-so-gentle-men- that has given her plenty of 'source material' from which to create a memorable evening of theater. From her early years as a young girl raised in a religious family, through her sexual awakening as a young adult, she takes us on a bumpy ride over a funny, sexy and emotionally rocky road. I guarantee you will laugh along with her and nod in recognition of our common sexual experiences while fighting with the shame and guilt her experimentation caused her psyche. (more...)
