BWW Reviews: KRITZERLAND 4th Anniversary Show Is a WinnerBWW Reviews: KRITZERLAND 4th Anniversary Show Is a Winner
by Don Grigware - Sep 9, 2014

On Sunday September 7, at Sterling's Upstairs at the Federal, due to an advance sell-out crowd for the 7 pm show, an additional matinee show was performed for the Fourth Anniversary of Kritzerland. Needless to say, both matinee and evening performances were sold out, making the monthly Kritzerland tributes the most popular shows at Sterling's Upstairs at the Federal. The anniversary party was entitled They're Playing Our Song: The Songs That Got Away III and along with special guests Kerry O'Malley and Bruce Vilanch, the big cast also included Robert Yacko, Evan Harris, Madison Claire Parks, Sami Staitman, Jenna Lea Rosen, and also little Hadley Miller, and in chorus numbers of What If?: Kimberly Hessler, Travis Leland, Bruce Merkle, and Adrienne Visnic, all under the baton of super musical director John Boswell. This marked the 49th Kritzerland show since its inception at the Gardenia in 2010, and its host Bruce Kimmel, founder of Kritzerland Records, was in rare form, doling out trivia-worthy anecdotes about every number presented, as well as singing a song himself, due to the absence of Guy Haines.

When Cheyenne Jackson made his debut in the Broadway @ The Art House series hosted by Seth Rudetsky last month, the Cape Cod Times called him 'a singer with tremendous style' and raved that 'his vocal range goes deep for Elvis-like tunes but can flip to a high, yowling falsetto' and 'his dance moves go from sultry to hip-swiveling rock.' On the heels of selling-out all three of his July 4th holiday weekend shows in Provincetown, he has announced a return to The Art House for Labor Day weekend of August 29, 30, 31 at 7:00 PM by popular demand. SiriusXM radio star Seth Rudetsky will join him again as pianist and host. For tickets please visit www.ptownarthouse.com or call 508-487-9222. (more...)
