BWW Reviews: 'Don't Sit Under the Chandelier with Anyone Else But Me' - PHANTOM Haunts the Orpheum
by Joseph Baker - Sep 29, 2014

When Gaston Leroux published THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA back in 1911, little did he realize the numerous chandeliers that would come crashing down through the decades, and I've witnessed a good number of them. First, in 1925, there was 'the Man of a Thousand Faces,' Lon Chaney, Sr., who frightened poor Mary Philbin (a well-done version, even IF the film was silent); then, for Universal in 1941, Claude Rains (Bette Davis' favorite co-star) was a more subdued vocal coach for soprano Susanna Foster (a wooden Nelson Eddy, alas, is a greater impending horror as 'Raoul'). I could go on - even Herbert Lom, the actor who was the harried police superior to Peter Sellers' 'Inspector Clousseau,' took a swing on the old light fixture. (And let us not forget diminutive Paul Williams in the slightly askew PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE.) All of these pale, of course, in comparison to the legendary interpretation by Michael Crawford in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, which first brought the audience to its feet in 1986. (more...)

Aris has taken over the human body of one of Sarah's patients so that he can once again be close to the only woman who has ever captured his heart. If Sarah chooses to become an Immortal Vampire, she must also find the strength to fight a vampire war that could literally destroy everyone and everything she holds dear. Author Devin Morgan answers all the fascinating questions posed in the first two novels in this final novel: Did Sarah and Aris' love first ignite during the reign of Henry the VIII when Sarah was the handmaiden at court, Elizabeth Wyatt? Is the stunningly handsome DeMarco evil enough to murder the only woman he has ever truly loved? Can Sarah find a home in Aris' Catacombs? Will she take up arms to fight for her Immortal love?

BWW Reviews: Stunningly Staged EDWIN DROOD at Actors Coop
by Don Grigware - Sep 23, 2014

Charles Dickens' last novel, unfinished at the time of his death in 1870, supplied the story for the musical The Mystery of Edwin Drood which won five Tony Awards when it first premiered in 1985. Although it won for Best Book and Best Score, I hardly find either completely satisfying. On the musical side, it's very much like operetta, with pretty singing, but with only one memorable song 'Don't Quit While You're Ahead'. As far as the book is concerned, it is a lengthy attempt to complete Dickens' story by allowing the audience to have its say...certainly a novel concept in 1985. Was he murdered? Was he in fact alive at the end? You decide! On the positive side, it is creative and very theatrical as a play within a play encouraging grande overplaying by the company of actors, and making it an assuredly fun entertainment. Despite mixed feelings about the play, I cannot but laud the current production at Actors Coop which is magnificently staged by director Stephen Van Dorn, wonderfully choreographed by Julie Hall and with an astounding ensemble... through October 26.

BWW Reviews: HOW I BECAME A PIRATE Offers Swashbuckling Delight
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Sep 23, 2014

Almost all children (and not a few adults) have a fascination with all things piratical, and the musical HOW I BECAME A PIRATE, currently in production at Columbia Children's Theatre through September 28, yields Plenty of material to indulge that fascination. This fun offering, written by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman, based on the popular children's book of the same name by Melinda Long, has Plenty to engage children and also keep their parents smiling broadly throughout the approximate one-hour running time. Young children will take this fantastic journey into the world of (not-so-scary) pirates at face value, perhaps even responding directly to the actors, while their older siblings and adults will appreciate the sly humor and send-up of buccaneer lore.
