BWW Interviews: Michael  Winther in NEXT TO NORMAL – From MAMMA MIA! To MarylandBWW Interviews: Michael Winther in NEXT TO NORMAL – From MAMMA MIA! To Maryland
by Charles Shubow - Nov 5, 2014

I have to admit that I was very excited when I read that veteran actor Michael Winther would be returning to Center Stage to star in the Pulitzer Prize winning musical NEXT TO NORMAL. It was Director David Schweizer who asked Winther to come to Center Stage for the role of Dan. Schweizer also directed Winther back in 2007 when he played the role of Dromio in BOYS FROM SYRACUSE along with Manu Narayan and Paolo Montalban. Winther became friends with Narayan when the two both worked on Broadway at the same time, Narayan was the star of BOMBAY DREAMS at the Broadway Theater and Winther was down the street at the Winter Garden in MAMMA MIA! Winther related it was Narayan who called him up last year to take Narayan's place in San Paolo, Brazil to perform in the KIezmer musical THE NIGHT IN THE OLD MARKET PLACE. So Winther spent ten days in Brazil along with another actress from the BOYS FROM SYRACUSE, Charlotte Cohn. (more...)

BWW Recap: Time to Discover SLEEPY HOLLOW's Hidden 'Magnum Opus'BWW Recap: Time to Discover SLEEPY HOLLOW's Hidden 'Magnum Opus'
by Courtney Henley - Nov 25, 2014

It pains me to admit this, SLEEPY HOLLOW, but for a while this season, I felt like you were losing your momentum. Sure, your episodes were fine, but sometimes it seemed like you were reaching. They certainly weren't always the power-packed, dramatic tales from season one that we grew to know and love. Tonight's episode started in quite the same way. And then it made a complete 180 and suddenly, we were back to the good ol' days, fighting Moloch and all his henchmen like it's our job! Just in time, too, since Moloch is growing stronger and the impending apocalypse could happen, like, any second now. (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Ed Dixon - Nov 11, 2014

Tuesday, November 4 Started the day REALLY early with packing. They're moving me to housing right next to the theater. The Pennsylvanian is a lovely place but it's a HIKE and the weather is about to turn cold, so I'm really glad to be getting closer to work. After the move we did some trouble areas of the play and tightened the up considerably. Then I did an interview with Bill O'Driscoll from the City Paper. Forgot to mention, I did interviews with Sharon of the Post-Gazette and Alice Carter from the Tribune last week. Both were very enjoyable. We did a run through in the afternoon and it was the first time the first act had come together. The show is an ensemble piece so almost the entire cast is onstage all the time. This means everyone has to be on their toes ALL THE TIME or cues will be missed. This was the first time everyone kept the ball in the air for the entire first act. The second act wasn't as fortunate… one step at a time. (more...)

Disney is known for bringing the magic to its theatrical events, but there's no enchantment in this touring production of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Instead, NETworks has skimped on the production values and has presented a night of theater that is often tacky and rarely captivating. In other words, this BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is more beastly than beauty. (more...)

Orange County, Calif.—Jan. 26, 2015—The next Santa Ana Sites event is the result of what happens when a classical orchestra, Pacific Symphony, teams up with an experimental music ensemble, wild Up, and explores an eclectic mix of contemporary music at a converted warehouse turned art space in Santa Ana, called Logan Creative. Together, a dozen musicians from each ensemble form a string orchestra under the baton of Christopher Rountree, artistic director and conductor of wild Up. The concert takes place on Saturday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m. and features music by two popular, classically trained musicians of the contemporary rock scene: “Popcorn Superhet Receiver” by Jonny Greenwood, the lead guitar player in Radiohead, and “Lachrimae” by Bryce Dessner, guitar player in the indie band The National. Other pieces on the program include Andrew Norman's “Gran Turismo,” Arvo Pärt's “Summa,” John Dowland's “Flow My Tears” and Dmitri Shostakovich's Chamber Symphony for Strings in C Minor, Op. 110a.

BWW Reviews: STRIKING 12 Takes You on a Unique and Entertaining JourneyBWW Reviews: STRIKING 12 Takes You on a Unique and Entertaining Journey
by Don Grigware - Dec 9, 2014

Loud repetitious music usually is a turnoff to me, in spite of the fact that the rock and roll of the 60s and 70s constitutes a large part of my musical background. I grew up listening to it and like much of it, but in later years have narrowed my preferences to pop standards, jazz and Broadway fare, which always make me happy. Although Irish, I have learned to love Celtic music more recently; since Once, I have become increasingly enamored of that sound especially at Christmas. When you add violin to keyboard, drums and guitar, as do the creators of Striking 12, now in its Orange County premiere at the Laguna Playhouse through December 28, you get that joyful sound loud and clear, and that plus the brilliance of the four musicians/actors (Brent Schindele ...
