BWW Review: Mad Cow's PHILADELPHIA STORY is a Joyful Classic ComedyBWW Review: Mad Cow's PHILADELPHIA STORY is a Joyful Classic Comedy
by Matt Tamanini - Apr 7, 2015

I have to admit, I have a significant gap in my pop culture knowledge. I have never seen the movie version of Philip Barry's play THE PHILADELPHIA STORY, which starred Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Jimmy Stewart, and garnered six Academy Award nominations in 1940. While I have seen a stage production Cole Porter's musical adaptation, HIGH SOCIETY (which was also a 1956 film), it wasn't until I saw Mad Cow Theatre's production (running through April 19th) that I truly appreciated the charming wit and sophistication of this classic high comedy. Under the direction of Aradhana Tiwari, Mad Cow's cast is an exceptionally talented group that will bring a Smile to your heart, and just might bring a sentimental tear to your eye. THE PHILADELPHIA STORY is the most enjoyable Mad Cow mainstage production that I have seen. (more...)

BWW Recap: Liza Attempts to Get Steamy and Sexy with Josh on This Week's YOUNGERBWW Recap: Liza Attempts to Get Steamy and Sexy with Josh on This Week's YOUNGER
by Matt Smith - Apr 7, 2015

When we open, Liza receives a text from Josh. She texts back “OKAY,” but deletes it before sending, continually rethinking and shortening her response to fit her 26-year-old persona. Really awesome, clever, and subtle way to show her continual struggle to adjust to the young adult world. Though, she's clearly progressing and gaining confidence in her new “age” — with a smirky Smile, she knows immediately “OKAY” will not fly and “K” with an emoticon is totally the way to go.

BWW Reviews: JOHN MELLENCAMP Shows No Sign of Slowing Down at Rocking PPAC ShowBWW Reviews: JOHN MELLENCAMP Shows No Sign of Slowing Down at Rocking PPAC Show
by Robert Barossi - Apr 17, 2015

Famous celebrities, singers, musicians, actors and the like, can often seem almost other-worldly. As if they're from some other dimension or planet, different from ours, one we'll never fully experience or understand. Others, though, seem so remarkably a part of our world and a familiar resident in it that the quality becomes one of their calling cards. For his entire decade-spanning career, John Mellencamp has been one of those artists. He has always had an everyman quality, as if he has worked the same jobs we have, dreamed the same dreams, lived the same life and had the same experiences. And, of course, he has had some of those same dreams and experiences, he's just been able to craft them into songs which have more than stood the test of time and still have as much relevance and power as on the day he wrote them.

by Alix Cohen - Apr 16, 2015

“Lover, when I'm near you . . .” sings the debonair Todd Murray this past Monday night at Birdland, mere feet away from rapt eyes into which he pours himself. He's performing the waltzy song acoustically, voice full out in opposition to lyric mood. The back of the house undoubtedly finds sound muted. “This is how you would've heard a band singer in 1925, before a new technique called 'crooning',” he tells us. “From the time I started working, they always called me a crooner.” (more...)

by Billie Roe - Apr 14, 2015

It was more than fitting that the New York cabaret community should honor the late Jerry Scott last Saturday night at Parnell's--the last piano bar that Jerry played before he died in April, 2013 at 67. To honor Jerry's memory and his lifetime of achievements, three devoted friends, cabaret reviewer John Hoglund, Allan Armour, and Geri Malino produced The First Annual Jerry Scott Memorial Award Show. This yearly event will not only pay tribute to Jerry's extraordinary talent, but the award will be presented to an exceptional entertainer/performer in the Manhattan Piano Bar/Lounge/Restaurant scene. The first recipient of the aptly named “Bronze Piano” was Bobby Peaco, a well-respected member of the New York cabaret community for more than 20 years. (more...)

by Jay Irwin - Apr 13, 2015

All too often in musical theater the performers have pretty voices but do the standard "park and bark" and just belt out those tunes with no character or story behind it. Such is not the case with the 12 person ensemble of STAGEright's current production of "Into the Woods" who not only sang the Sondheim score beautifully but also managed a ton of both comedic and dramatic timing to actually convey their characters (many of whom had multiple characters) making this one of the best productions I've seen.

by Shari Barrett - Apr 13, 2015

In 1948, a decade before Motown, John Dolphin opened his soon-to-be world famous Dolphin's of Hollywood record store in South Los Angeles, just off legendary Central Avenue, but his contributions to music and the formative years of rock 'n' roll have often been overlooked. Based on the book "Recorded In Hollywood: The John Dolphin Story," this new musical features 16 original songs by Andy Cooper to match the musical era of the 1950s, as well as hit cover songs associated with the story including Sam Cooke's "You Send Me," The Penguins' "Earth Angel" and "Wheel Of Fortune" by The Hollywood Flames.

by Chris Gibson - Apr 1, 2015

Although a handful of playwrights have used elements from Anton Chekhov's canon of classics (such as Neil Simon's The Good Doctor), I can't think of any other writer who's displayed such ingenuity in incorporating bits and pieces from his work the way that Christopher Durang has in his play VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE. Referencing Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, The Seagull, and The Cherry Orchard, Durang has put together a show that's so absurdly funny it hurts! It's not a parody of Chekhov, but instead neatly walks a tightrope that utilizes these traces in enjoyable and amusing ways that act to provide an intelligent depth that engages while it entertains. The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis closes their season on a gloriously high note that will make you wish their productions continued year round. Don't miss this hilarious show! (more...)

There have been a few times in my life where I attended an event, be it a theatre production or a concert, and I woke up the next morning still reeling from the excitement with a cheesy Smile plastered across my face. The first time I remember that happening was when my dad took me and my younger sister to see Hanson (yes, the Mmmbop guys) on their Middle of Nowhere Tour. I also remember feeling like that after I saw NEWSIES for the first time on Broadway. Experiencing THE MIDTOWN MEN at the Mahalia Jackson Theater was another one of those events. Not only are these guys some of the sweetest, most genuine humans I've ever met - we're talking funfetti cupcake status, here - they have a passion for entertaining that is unmatched. (more...)
