BWW Review: West Coast Premiere of PURE CONFIDENCE Races to the Top of the Pack
by Shari Barrett - Apr 18, 2017

Since I left the theater last Sunday, I have been singing 'Camptown Races' (sometimes referred to as 'Camptown Ladies'), a comic song written by Stephen Foster, known as The Father of American music who was considered the pre-eminent songwriter in the United States of the 19th century. Appropriately, the song was published in 1850 in Foster's Plantation Melodies, making it the perfect theme song for PURE CONFIDENCE, a play set in the high-stakes world of Civil War-era horse racing. This surprisingly funny and daring story takes a look at the complexity of race relations, love and dignity in the second half of the nineteenth century. Against a vivid backdrop of fast horses, gritty racetracks and high-stakes betting, it's an extraordinary tale of human triumphs and failings. (more...)

BWW Review: Thought Provoking THE ORIGINALIST Arrives at Pasadena Playhouse
by Don Grigware - Apr 17, 2017

From the moment the strains of Verdi's La Traviata were heard in the wings and Edward Gero as Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia entered through a part in the curtain pretending to conduct the orchestra in a joyously bemused state, I sensed we were in for a treat. How right I was! In and around the courtroom ... a perfect place for passion and theatrics, this is John Strand's The Originalist, a somewhat factual play set in Washington from 2012-13. The piece boasts intelligent writing, and a grande performance from Gero as Scalia, as well as great work from Jade Wheeler and Brett Mack, all of whom leave an indelible mark by making us think. You actually leave the theatre refreshed ... and somewhat hopeful about the future of our political system. (more...)

Feel the presence of the masters as Pacific Symphony's final concert of the 2016-17 Café Ludwig series explores why the world owes a huge debt of gratitude to “Papa Haydn”—who was so instrumental in the development of chamber music he became known as The Father of the string quartet.
