BWW Reviews: KISS ME, KATE schafft unterhaltsamen Openair-Abend in Bad Hersfeld
by Iris Moebius - Jul 31, 2014

Nach dem sensationellen Erfolg von „Show Boat" im letzten Jahr warteten die Bad Hersfelder Festspielen in diesem Jahr mit "Kiss Me, Kate" mit einem weiteren Klassiker auf. Das Musical aus der Feder von Cole Porter spielt hinter (und vor) den Kulissen einer musikalischen Inszenierung von Shakespeares "Der Widerspenstigen Zahmung". Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei Diva Lilli Vanessi (Katharina Mehrling), die nach langerer Zeit im Filmgeschaft wieder zu ihren Theaterwurzeln zuruckgehrt ist, um die Rolle der Kate an der Seite ihres ehemaligen Geliebten Fred (Thomas Borchert) zu spielen. Wie bei einer solch explosiven Besetzung kaum anders zu erwarten, kommt es am Premierenabend zu reichlich Konflikten zwischen den beiden, die auch das Geschehen auf der Buhne beeinflussen. Als Lilli frustriert mitten in der Auffuhrung abreisen will, kommen zwei Ganoven zur Hilfe, die finanzielles Interesse am Erfolg der Show haben. Sie uberzeugen Lilli mit nicht ganz lupenreinen Methoden davon zu bleiben. (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Ordway's BROADWAY SONGBOOK: THE FIRST 100 YEARS OF BROADWAY is Once Again an Informative and Entertaining Look at Musical Theater History
by Jill Schafer - Aug 8, 2014

The Ordway is opening its fourth season of the BROADWAY SONGBOOK series with a retrospective of the first 100 years of Broadway. If you're like me, your first question is - when did Broadway begin? It's debatable, but Professor James Rocco - who presides over what feels like a college seminar on musical theater history with live show-and-tell by the Twin Cities' best musical theater performers - tells us that the beginning of Broadway can be marked by THE BLACK CROOK in 1866. This is just one of the things you'll learn in this BROADWAY SONGBOOK, but don't worry, it is anything but dry and pedantic. The stories are fascinating and entertaining (at least to a musical theater nerd like myself), James has chosen just the right collection of songs to illustrate his points, and music director Raymond Berg has beautifully arranged the songs, which are performed with much passion, emotion, and humor by the talented cast of actor/singer/dancers.
