InDepth InterView: Rob Morrow & Robert D. Wachs Discuss New Paul Jabara Disco Musical LAST DANCE & MoreInDepth InterView: Rob Morrow & Robert D. Wachs Discuss New Paul Jabara Disco Musical LAST DANCE & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Sep 1, 2012

Today we are focusing a super-special spotlight on one of the Fall's most intriguing musical entries trying out in New York, the York Theatre Company's lab mounting of the new Paul Jabara jukebox musical LAST DANCE, by talking to the show's lead, recognizable TV and film star Rob Morrow, and the show's lead producer, noted comedic shepherd and filmmaker Robert D. Wachs, whom filled me in on all aspects of the show in a comprehensive chat late last week just prior to this week's start of rehearsals. In this all-encompassing conversation, Morrow, Wachs and I discuss the genesis of the new disco-themed musical celebrating the life and career of Jabara, the accomplished Emmy, Grammy and Academy Award-winning composer of Broadway shows (RACHAEL LILY ROSENBLOOM… AND DON'T YOU EVER FORGET IT), movie songs ("Last Dance" from THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY; the titular "The Main Event") and numerous pop/rock/disco hits, such as "It's Raining Men" by The Weather Girls, Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer's epic disco duet "Enough Is Enough (No More Tears)" and his many solo hits, as well as the finer points of the story, concept, casting and the ultimate goals of the new Philip William McKinley-directed production, which features a book by Shaun McKenna. Additionally, Morrow and Wachs each generously share showbiz tales from their storied careers involving such big names as Eddie Murphy, Michael Bennett, Jonathan Larson, Tony Scott and many more and both copiously convey their infectious enthusiasm for the forthcoming fully-produced lab presentation of the new musical that will play for five performances beginning September 20 as they prepare for its first viewing before a paying audience. All of that and much, much more awaits! (more...)

BWW Recap: 'Life's a Shipwreck' on BOARDWALK EMPIREBWW Recap: 'Life's a Shipwreck' on BOARDWALK EMPIRE
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 6, 2014

BOARDWALK EMPIRE came in strong this week with assassination attempts, affairs, pregnancies and cockroaches galore! The fifth episode of BOARDWALK's final season entitled 'King of Norway' was one of the best of this season as we had some real movement and development. One of the biggest issues I had with the last four episodes was that as we neared the halfway mark of the last season, there was still no clear direction or driving force for the season. We had through line connecting all the dots and pointing us to what to expect coming forward and now, we're finally laying the groundwork for the real major plot points of the season. More than halfway there, it seems like these last four episodes were one big premiere episode, laying the groundwork for the actual season. (more...)

t's been 40 years - 40 years! - since THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW hit a London stage and had a 5-year run as a popular musical. Think about that kind of staying power, and you will understand why audiences continue to flock to midnight showings of the 1975 film inspired by the musical. You'll also see why it captures new audiences, as in 2010 when the popular TV show 'Glee' used it as the basis for a plot. (more...)

"Will He Like Me?" "Vanilla Ice Cream" and course the entire score to Fiddler. What joy he gave me, and I know he will continue to give me long into the future. (more...)

With over twelve million hits on YouTube for their 'Twelve Days of Christmas' alone, the all-male a capella group Straight No Chaser has become something of a global phenomenon following their humble collegiate debut in 1996. As one of the founding members of the group, Walter Chase recently spoke with me about his passion for music, the trials and tribulations - and joys - of a capella singing, touring the world as part of a group, fame, as well as all about the dazzling brand new Straight No Chaser DVD/2-CD box set ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS, which will be released this week, featuring over thirty holiday tracks - and a few surprises, too!

BWW EXCLUSIVE: Shaiman & Wittman Talk SMASH, CATCH ME & More!BWW EXCLUSIVE: Shaiman & Wittman Talk SMASH, CATCH ME & More!
by Pat Cerasaro - May 18, 2011

Legends in their own time, ascending to the top ranks of the Hollywood and Broadway songwriting landscape, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman have accomplished and climbed to heights most of what many film fans, Broadway babies and general entertainment junkies only dream of witnessing and ascending to. Marc Shaiman's work with Trey Parker and Matt Stone on SOUTH PARK: BIGGER, LONGER & UNCUT prompted Stephen Sondheim - as he told me himself - to cite it as one of the best musicals of the era. And, it is - as is their Tony-winning Best Musical HAIRSPRAY, based on the film by Pope of Trash John Waters. Featuring John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Zac Efron, Queen Latifah and an all-around-amazing cast of triple-threats, the stunning Craig Zadan/Neil Meron-produced film version of HAIRSPRAY may be the greatest cinematic Shaiman and/or Wittman accomplishment so far. Then, there is CATCH ME IF YOU CAN - one of the snappiest new scores on Broadway in a strangely strong season of original scores - boasting boss Sinatra blues and sizzling Shirelles riffs and everything else that's swingin' in between. Up next for the team - onstage and off - is a stage adaptation of Roald Dahl's CHARLIE & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY directed by Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes, in addition to what is perhaps the most exciting prospect on their impossibly cluttered horizon: the new Steven Speilberg/Craig Zadan/Neil Meron musical/comedy/drama series SMASH which has just been picked up for the Fall season on NBC! In this exclusive, extensive and exhaustive conversation we cover it all from HAIRSPRAY to CATCH ME to CHARLIE to all about SMASH and far, far beyond! (more...)

Cinda McCain is one of the most naturally gifted actors you'll find on a stage anywhere. Thankfully, though, most of her work has been performed in Nashville and over the years the Mississippi native has assembled a resume that's full of some of the best theatrical roles for women: Blanche DuBois in Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire (which won her the First Night Award for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Play); Meg in Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart; Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - the list goes on and on. Most recently, however, she's found herself on soundstages, making film appearances alongside such notables as Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw in the upcoming Love Don't Let Me Down. (more...)

by Don Grigware - Mar 16, 2010

On Sunday March 14 Tamra Lamese Dozier, Dana Shaw, Sheila Ferrari and Melissa Smilow presented their show Sex, Love & Whine @ Sterling's Upstairs @ Vitello's to a packed house, but half hour to curtain... all was not in their favor. During dinner, the lights went off on the entire block of Tujunga Ave, forcing guests at Vitello's to eat and chat by candlelight and putting the impending 7:00pm show at risk. What to do when mics are electric too? Not to be seen or heard; whether 'tis nobler to perform... that is the question! At 6:50 Michael Sterling took the stage and addressed the anxious crowd explaining the situation that there was no backup generator in the building and that the DWP had given no word as to when power would be returned...but, that the four ladies wanted the show to go forward and would present their show, accompanied by their combo orchestra onstage... all with the limited lighting of candles...and at half price for patrons, Sterling encouraged them to return to see an uninterrupted show, that would be rescheduled at a later date. The audience cheeredand ON WITH THE SHOW! (more...)

Sheldon Cohen M.D. Launches Website Showcasing His 21 BooksSheldon Cohen M.D. Launches Website Showcasing His 21 Books
by BWW News Desk - Jun 26, 2013

Upon retiring from a busy 40 year medical career, Dr. Cohen sought out a mind stimulating activity. Writing books seemed like a good idea, but how to start? Especially since the only previous writing emanating from the author were patient medical reports. Fifteen years ago, at age 68, the 'young' author sat down and started work on a medical murder mystery that had been incubating in his mind for many years prior to retirement. Four years of writing activity resulted in Brainstorm. Lo and behold, a publisher accepted the book, worked to publish it for many months-and declared bankruptcy. Welcome to the publishing world! Not dissuaded and fascinated by writing art and science, the next ten years saw many self-published print books pouring out of the author's computer followed by 21 (so far) ebooks in multiple genres including: Historical Fiction (World War II and Jewish history), Historical Fiction (nuclear bomb development), Fiction (medical murder mysteries), Fiction (medical diagnostic puzzle), Non-Fiction (medical), Fiction (terrorism), History (terrorism), History (physics), Healthcare, Autobiography, Children Story Poems. The author will continue writing as long as the years permit. (more...)

Noel Coward's Rarely Done FALLEN ANGELS Lights Up Pasadena PlayhouseNoel Coward's Rarely Done FALLEN ANGELS Lights Up Pasadena Playhouse
by Don Grigware - Feb 5, 2013

The terribly witty genius Noel Coward was a poet, playwright, screen writer and music composer extraordinaire whose theatrical hits in the 30s and 40s were unparalleled successes in both the UK and elsewhere abroad... and in the United States. His farce Fallen Angels is rarely if ever produced and it gives 6 actors, especially the 3 women a field day, in which they can go as far over the top as their hearts desire all the while keeping the audience eating out of their hands. Actors love to act and Art Manke's cast at the Pasadena Playhouse are certainly no exception. They are deliciously campy, irreverent and full of the dickens... or should I say Coward? (more...)
