BWW Reviews: Good People's MARRY ME A LITTLE Takes Pleasingly Gentle Approach with Sondheim RevueBWW Reviews: Good People's MARRY ME A LITTLE Takes Pleasingly Gentle Approach with Sondheim Revue
by Don Grigware - Jun 22, 2015

During the crazy broohaha of the Hollywood Fringe Festival, there are plenty of loud, over.the.top noisy shows, if that suits your pleasure. Sondheim's Marry Me a Little is a quiet, gentle little 60-minute musical revue that just doesn't fit that bill. And that's totally fine by me! I prefer Sondheim anyway. In Marry Me a Little, conceived by Craig Lucas and Norman Rene, many of the songs are from the then - late 90s - unproduced Saturday Night coupled with a multitude of songs cut from hits like Company, Follies, A Little Night Music and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. It's a two-person intimate show on the vast Lillian stage and as usual Janet Miller has staged the piece adeptly with lots of tender loving care. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Skylark Opera Offers Two Different but Equally Satisfying Music-Theater Shows in their Annual Summer FestivalBWW Reviews: Skylark Opera Offers Two Different but Equally Satisfying Music-Theater Shows in their Annual Summer Festival
by Jill Schafer - Jun 16, 2015

One of the theatrical highlights of the summer, Skylark Opera's Annual Summer Festival, is upon us! As usual, the two shows playing in repertoire include one that's more of a traditional opera (but always in English) and one that skews a bit more towards musical theater: Puccini's LA RONDINE and the Sondheim musical revue PUTTING IT TOGETHER (put together by Sondheim himself). As someone who loves musical theater but doesn't venture into the world of opera very often, Skylark's Summer Festival offers a fun, easy, accessible way to enjoy to dip my toes into the opera scene and indulge my love of musical theater. Both shows are highly entertaining with excellent casts and orchestras. But the runs are short with just four performances of each show. So read on, take your pick, and get your tickets before this all-too-brief Summer Festival is gone like the all-too-brief Minnesota summer! (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jul 1, 2015

Stephen Sondeim's 'A Little Night Music,' winner of four Tony Awards in1973, is a musical comedy that has entranced the world. Suggested by a film by Ingmar Bergman, 'A Little Night Music' explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desiree Armfeldt (Jemima Lipari of Plainfield) and two men who love her: a married lawyer by the name of Fredrick Egerman (Ernest Ray of Bolingbrook,) and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom (Michael Frale of Elk Grove). When Desiree performs in Frerdick's town, the estranged lovers' passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Fredrick's wife, Anne (Savannah Reisenberg of Plainfield), Desiree's current lover, the Count, and the Count's wife, Charlotte (Kathy Fields of Lockport). Both men- as well as their jealous wives- join Desiree and her family on the summer solstice for 'A Weekend in the Country.' With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises. This musical celebration of love contains a harmonically advanced score, and Sondheim's hauntingly beautiful 'Send in the Clowns.' (more...)
