InDepth InterView: Lena Hall Talks HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH, Plus KINKY BOOTS, CATS, Upcoming The Deafening Gigs & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Apr 14, 2014

Today we are talking to a Broadway leading lady making a major mark in the gender-bending role of Yitzhak in the new Broadway production of John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's masterful rock musical HEDWIG & THE ANGRY INCH starring Neil Patrick Harris, the affable and idiosyncratically alluring Lena Hall. Discussing sharing the stage with NPH in the raucous and wild rock showpiece, Hall offers a vivid view of her participation in the Broadway iteration of the cult hit - ranging from polishing her vocals for a cover of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" to donning a prosthetic penis and much more. Additionally, Hall opens up about the larger themes of the prescient and timely musical, as well as shares her affection for the rock, pop and punk sound the score so evocatively emulates and recreates. On that note, Hall also sheds some light on her other ongoing endeavor, as lead singer of the band The Deafening, and shares some of her favorite songs to sing at gigs around town - including an upcoming show at Arlene's Grocery later this week. As if that were not enough, Hall also looks back on some of her most fondly remembered roles to date, reflecting on her time spent in the corps of CATS and the lace-ups of KINKY BOOTS through to a new jukebox musical project featuring the music of iconic rock songwriter Holly Knight. All of that, throwback tales involving NPH and much, much more in this wide-ranging conversation with one of the most uniquely compelling Broadway stars of the new season. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Apr 12, 2014

Elie Bernheim, grandson of the eponymous founder of the independent watch brand, RAYMOND WEIL, has taken over the reins from his father Olivier Bernheim, and lead the family company. This act sets the stamp of the third generation at the head of the Swiss watch company. Elie Bernheim was named as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) on 8 April, 2014. Elie Bernheim joined the company in 2006 after graduating from the prestigious Hospitality Management School of Lausanne. Representing the third generation of the family company, Elie Bernheim - grandson of Mr Raymond Weil - has been the guarantor of continuity of the Brand's heritage, founded on the watchmaking know-how and unflinching adherence to its values. With expertise in watchmaking, marketing and company management, Elie Bernheim was in charge of the development and optimization of the global strategy for RAYMOND WEIL during recent years. It was in the context of a continuing respect for this heritage firmly entrusted to him, which has constituted the cornerstone of the remarkable success of this watchmaking Brand over the years, that Elie Bernheim embarked on his career in the company. In parallel with his in-depth product knowledge and expertise, Elie Bernheim will remain the head of RAYMOND WEIL's marketing department. Respecting the founding values remains essential to his vision for the future. This is what will seal the success of all the dynamism, ambition and energy that he hopes to harness for the benefit the family company. While analytical and pragmatic, Elie Bernheim is nonetheless passionate about life, the Arts and music. Essentially inherited from his mother, who is a professional pianist, the passion for Music Is today breathing a new lease of life, animating each new product development or marketing positioning. Elie Bernheim succeeds his father Olivier Bernheim, who proudly passes on the baton. Olivier Bernheim joined the family company in 1982. He became the Chief Executive Officer of RAYMOND WEIL in 1996 and will remain President of the Board of Directors and company consultant. RAYMOND WEIL Founded in 1976, RAYMOND WEIL is one of the last independent, Swiss family watchmaking companies.

Music has always been at the heart of RAYMOND WEIL's universe, as can be seen with the names of the different Brand collections, taken from famous operas, such as nabucco and parsifal, or the musical connotations, maestro and jasmine, as well as the numerous musical partnerships that RAYMOND WEIL has had, particularly with iconic concert halls, prestigious prize awards, online music platforms and charitable activities linked to the music world. Emotions, precision and performance: these are the values common to both music and watchmaking that RAYMOND WEIL aspires to share with its clients. (more...)
