BWW Review: Chromolume Theatre Revives an Intriguing HELLO AGAIN
by Don Grigware - May 8, 2017

With this concise Wikipedia description in mind let's say that Michael John LaChuisa has taken liberties in composing his musical version of La Ronde called Hello Again. The musical first premiered off-Broadway in 1993. Liberties taken primarily are placing 10 scenes and characters in different time periods of the 20th century in a non-chronological order...and utilizing simulated raw sex in many of the scenes. When the whore (a very enticing Michelle Holmes) gets her hooks into the soldier (Cesar Cipriano), it is 1900. In the next scene the soldier comes onto the nurse in 1940. Mores changed with the times and sexual practices diversified, particularly in the 60s and 70s with Woodstock an open haven for hippies and rampant sex, and then later homosexuals coming out of the closet. Within these varying time periods, LaChuisa introduces a variety of musical styles that somehow manage to tie the stories together, making them more colorful and exciting. Now in a rare revival at Chromolume Theatre, Hello Again is receiving a fine production with even direction by Richard Van Slyke and a fantastic cast of 10 actors. (more...)

BWW REVIEW: A Daughter Dances For Answers in Sergio Trujillo's ARRABAL
by Justin J. Sacramone - May 26, 2017

The foundation of ARRABAL builds upon Argentina's tumultuous past of decaying democracy and state-sponsored terrorism while focusing on a single family affected by this conflict. The family here is a captured guerrilla fighter-slash-father, a mourning Abuela, and daughter Arrabal on a quest for closure. Despite sounding overstuffed, the title character's undeveloped journey combined with a vague use of dense themes leads to a performance piece begging to be more. (more...)

Seu Jorge Adds September Dates to THE LIFE AQUATIC - A TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE Tour
by BWW News Desk - May 17, 2017

Though Seu Jorge is one of Brazil's most celebrated singers and actors, he is perhaps best known here in the U.S. for his role in Wes Anderson's 2004 film The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, in which Jorge reinterpreted a number of David Bowie's biggest hits. The songs, performed in Portuguese and featuring Jorge solo on acoustic guitar, became something entirely unique.

Nestor Torres Performs at The Lyric Stage in Master Class
by BWW News Desk - Apr 19, 2017

Latin jazz flute maestro, Nestor Torres took to The Lyric stage, Friday, March 31st, along with 20 student musicians to deliver a 3-hour Knockout performance that brought the audience to its feet in thunderous applause. The concert event was the culmination of a intensive master class, presented by The Lyric Theatre and The Arts Council of Martin County, in which the Grammy-winner worked tirelessly with the instrumentalists over a period of 4 days. For nearly all of the musicians, this was their first exposure to Latin music, posing a myriad of challenges, most particularly in relation to rhythms. Mr. Torres presented the students with a daunting selection of music that they have never seen or heard before.  Astoundingly, in less than a week's time, these students rose to the challenge and accompanied Mr. Torres for the duration of his show 'Havana & Buenos Aires', with the help of only a handful of professional musicians.
