BWW Reviews: Cabrillo Brings Back BYE BYE BIRDIE
by Don Grigware - Jul 21, 2014

Ah, the rhythms of the 50s/60s! Got 'A Lot of Livin' to Do'! Lee Adams and Charles Strouse wrote the music and lyrics of Bye Bye Birdie to honor a generation of fans who swooned and literally gave themselves over to the rock and roll of Elvis Presley. Conrad Birdie (Austin MacPhee) is an obvious play on Conway Twitty, a rock star of that era who later became a superstar in the world of country. When Elvis went into the army, he became a national hero. Female teens adored him and would give up their own boyfriends just to be near him. This is Bye Bye Birdie in a nutshell now in a rollicking revival at Cabrillo Music Theatre through July 27. (more...)

BWW Reviews: THE BIG A: SCENES FROM A VANISHING LANDSCAPE Gives Perspective at Capital Fringe
by Ellen Burns - Jul 16, 2014

Robert Epstein, the writer and director of The Big A, based the show on his family's own experiences. As a long-time New York and DC actor, acting teacher and Macomb Theater Company founder, Epstein felt that, instead of lecturing about the experience of Alzheimer's/dementia, he wanted to take the audience inside the reality; showing us the effects of the disease from varying perspectives within a theatrical context. We are invited inside the mind of the aging parent as he/she tries to make sense of the chaos that seems to be everywhere, and the struggle to communicate the terror and loneliness that wells up. And then we are back on the other side of that fear, with the frustrated and hurting son, feeling, I daresay, a gread deal more empathy for both sides. (more...)

Zebrina's Wandering Klezmer Hybrids Flourish on HAMIDBAR MEDABER
by BWW News Desk - Jul 1, 2014

Canadian jazz pianist Jonathan Feldman had an epiphany. Raised on a steady diet of Miles Davis and his former bandmates' records like Chick Corea's “Light as a Feather”, Feldman hadn't really explored the music of his family's Jewish faith. Growing up Jewish in Hamilton, ON and attending a Jewish elementary school and summer camp exposed him to some Israeli folk music and the liturgical music of the synagogue, but aside from the avant-garde offerings of clarinetist Ben Goldberg, he never checked out much klezmer music, sometimes called “Jewish Jazz”.
