Julian Velard Returns to Joe's Pub with FANCY WORDS FOR FAILURE Album Release Show
by BWW News Desk - Jun 7, 2017

Victory has a hundred fathers and defeat is an orphan - at least, that's how the old saying goes. But as passionately as we're conditioned to strive for first place in our success-driven world, deep down we all know we're our truest selves when we're confronted with failure. It's a sobering subject, and perhaps not the first you might expect to inform a hook-filled, piano-driven pop album, but Julian Velard isn't your average recording artist. The New York-based singer/songwriter's fifth full-length LP, Fancy Words for Failure, surveys that universal chasm of disappointment with the bemusement reflected in the its title.

BWW Review: 1776 at Connecticut Repertory Theatre
by Joseph Harrison - Jun 3, 2017

It is a staple image of American History - one that every American child learns about in school and one that comes to mind for many as the barbecues fire up and fireworks are prepared for Independence Day on the Fourth of July. I am speaking of the iconic image of the brave founding fathers signing the Declaration of Independence. But how often does one think about these men and what they actually might have been like (their quirks, their personalities, their dreams) trying to sort out how to move forward in what had to be a stressful and tumultuous time. This story of the men you know (Franklin, Adams, Jefferson) and some you may not (Rodney, Hall, Dickinson) and the journey they take together to work through conflict and declare their freedom from England comes to brilliant life on stage in the Connecticut Repertory Theatre's (CRT) inaugural production of their Summer Nutmeg Series, 1776.

by Jay Irwin - Jun 14, 2017

The 1998 Sam Mendes staging of Kander and Ebb's classic "Cabaret" has come through the Paramount several times. And why not? It's a great show and a big crowd pleaser.

Fortunately for us the current tour at the Paramount is a shiny (or rather intentionally not shiny) example of how good this show can be and why it's still an enduring classic. (more...)
