by Don Grigware - Sep 6, 2016

Hard to believe, but Kritzerland turned 6 on Sunday September 4 at Sterling's Upstairs at the Federal. Bruce Kimmel and his record company Kritzerland began their series of concerts at the Gardenia for the first year, then moved to Vitello's with Michael Sterling and onto the Federal four years ago. Kimmel and Kritzerland are joined at the hip; it's his brainchild ... and he brings all of his ingenious theatricality and cleverness to each show. This anniversary show was over.the.moon great with terribly eclectic, funny numbers and some absolutely wonderful talent. On board were steadies Sharon McNight, Nick Santa Maria, Ilene Graff and hubbie Ben Lanzarone, Jenna Lea Rosen, Sami Staitman and special appearance by composer Richard M. Sherman.

By the same token, Washington National Opera's new production of the effervescent comic opera deserved just as many ovations. Now playing through Sunday, October 2 in the Kennedy Center Opera House, THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO with Mozart's bubbly score and de Ponte's delicious libretto sparkles as bright as ever.

New York Times Best-Selling Author and Lifestyle Guru, Michael Flocker, is Back with a New Novel
by BWW News Desk - Oct 2, 2016

He influenced millions of men with 'The Metrosexual Guide to Style,' he outlined the path to Nirvana with 'The Hedonism Handbook,' and he skewered corporate life with 'Death by Powerpoint.' Now, he's back with a brand new novel and he wants to change your life again, this time with fiction. Says Flocker, 'Like any other work of art, a great novel should affect you viscerally. Just as you might be moved to tears by a beautiful film, or haunted by a melancholy piece of music, a novel should stimulate your thoughts and emotions. It should leave you with a new perspective or an emotional understanding that you didn't have before.' The Sound of Falling Stars is an unconventional love story that continually shifts direction, location, and even time, as layers unfold and the extraordinary connections between the past and the present, and the colorful cast of characters, are revealed. It is a sly and surprising story that illustrates how love can always come back to us, even after decades of silence, and change everything. When Martin Krumm learns that a beloved character from his childhood in Berlin has died, he returns to his mother's home in England in search of answers. But he gets a lot more than he bargained for when a series of secrets and revelations come tumbling out from the past. Disturbed by what he discovers, he embarks on a strange and twisting journey that takes him from the English countryside to the bright lights of Berlin and the winding canals and cobblestoned streets of Amsterdam. Armed with just a name and an old address, he sets out in search of someone he has never met - someone he must find if he is ever to learn the truth about the secrets that were left behind. About the Author Michael Flocker is a New York Times best-selling author whose works of non-fiction have been published in 22 countries. He has written for a variety of international magazines and newspapers, and USA Today once referred to him as 'The Oracle of Panache,' adding that his 'success bubbles up from his almost Oscar Wilde-like tone.' He has appeared on CNN, BBC, NPR and the TODAY show, and he has done red carpet commentary at the Golden Globes for the E! network. He has also worked as an editorial director, a screenwriter, a photographer, an actor and a television host. This is his first novel.

BWW Review: NINE WINNING ONE-ACTS Play at Group rep
by Don Grigware - Jul 26, 2016

Evenings of short one-acts are the rage at Equity-waiver theatres! In the black box theatre upstairs at Group rep you you are invited to come see Nine Winning One-Acts, plays that stretch a mere ten-fifteen minutes in length. The mini plays were chosen from over 160 entries from across the United States and written by various unknown playwrights. The evening is divided into two acts with five plays comprising Act One and four in Act Two. There is no single theme running through them, so if I had to describe the conflicts ...why ... life, death, dating, marriage, love, gay relationships, infidelity, euthanasia...and even cat abuse, though mild, thrown into the fray. The evening is Group rep's way of utilizing more company actors and directors, many of whom work less on the theatre mainstage, and for the most part, it's pleasantly stimulating and entertaining fare.

BWW Review: K ARTS BALLET Sets A New Standard for Excellence
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jul 13, 2016

The maxim 'Go big or go home' holds. That's one thing that can be said for Korea National University of Art's 'K Arts; Rising Stars of Korea Gala': they dance big; Bolshoi big. The leg extensions were never below 9 o'clock and more often than not floated past 12 o'clock; the pirouettes were never fewer than two and frequently zoomed from three to six; the grand jetes soared with clean splits every single time; and the manner always roared 'I LOVE TO DANCE AND I LOVE YOU TOO'!

BWW Review: CARNIVAL is a Dazzling Magical Delight
by Frank Benge - Aug 12, 2016

CARNIVAL is a musical that originally appeared on Broadway in 1961, with a book by Michael Stewart and music and lyrics by Bob Merrill. You may better know Merrill as the writer of the lyrics for Funny Girl. It is based on the 1953 MGM film Lili. The show is seldom produced; outside of the original production's National Tour; only a handful of productions have been done professionally, and one of those was a staged concert version. The main reason is the difficulty of the music. I am pleased to report that not only does the Summer Stock Austin production handle the score beautifully, the entire production is a dazzling, magical delight. (more...)
