by Jack L. B. Gohn - Jun 6, 2011

In an era when Waller had to enter some of the places he played by a side door, it would have been inhuman to resist completely the allure of white privilege. It's all on view in his song LOUNGIN' AT THE WALDORF, which contrasts the kind of freedom and looseness he could enjoy performing in Harlem with the stiffer, whiter milieu of the Waldorf Astoria. Nevertheless: "Ain't it swell doin' swell with the swells in the swellest hotel of them all? One of the strengths of the show is that it doesn't whitewash (if I may use that word here) this part of Waller's legacy. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THE SOUND OF MUSIC at Clarksville's Roxy Regional TheatreBWW Reviews: THE SOUND OF MUSIC at Clarksville's Roxy Regional Theatre
by Jeffrey Ellis - Jul 16, 2011

Rodgers and Hammerstein's The Sound of Music could very well be the most-often viewed of the legendary duo's iconic works for the musical theatre, what with the seemingly endless parade of televised airings of the acclaimed 1965 film version, the frequent professional revivals of the stage show and, of course, the fondness for the piece exemplified by the multiple stagings in little theaters all over the world. The musical's lush score, its likable heroine, its vaguely historic (if largely inaccurate) retelling of a true story and all those fresh-faced youngsters singing 'Do-Re-Mi' have made The Sound of Music a favorite of musical theater fans since its 1959 debut on Broadway.

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.
