BWW Review: Stunning TWILIGHT OF THE GODS at the Washington National Opera
by Andrew White - May 9, 2016

Director Francesca Zambello's Gotterdammerung is truly awesome-in both the original and contemporary senses of the word.  The conclusion of a four-part epic, this six-hour installment depicts the final struggle for ownership of a magical ring whose owner might rule the world-but which also holds a dire curse for all who come into contact with it. Through unforgettable projections, beautifully-executed music and stunning vocal performances, this is a once-in-a-lifetime artistic event.  (more...)

Fundraising Concert and Play at THE PIT Honors the Memory of a Talented Young Man's Life and Work, 5/22 at 12-3 pm
by Stephen Hanks - May 20, 2016

It was the kind of news that makes you feel like a piece of your heart has been cut out. A few weeks ago, I received an email from a woman named Alison Rosen, saying she knew me because her son Michael Vincent went to pre-school with my daughter Jean Louise (now 23) in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Of course, I remembered Alison and Michael from the play dates, the birthday parties, and one little play that Michael wrote and the kids performed in when they were around three years old. Nobody could know then that Michael Vincent would pursue a career in music, theater, and comedy, ultimately receiving a 'Young Playwright Award' at Brooklyn's Edward R. Murrow High School. Neither could anybody know that Michael Vincent Rosen-Pepitone would be dead at 21 from Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMC), as Alison wrote in her email, 'a treatable side effect of medication used to treat mental illness.'

BWW Review: Children's Theatre Company World Premiere of DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE MUSICAL is Irresistible
by Jill Schafer - Apr 26, 2016

DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE MUSICAL - I've got an animal heart for you. Even though I have no familiarity with the successful book series or movies, I felt obliged to see Children's Theater Company's world premiere musical adaptation because of the talk about a possibly Broadway run, and producer Kevin McCollum also produced my favorite musical RENT. But all sense of obligation quickly went out the window as the show won me over with it's clever and musically diverse score, universally relatable story of a kid trying to find himself in middle school, and most of all this incredible cast of mostly Twin Cities youth. Whether you're a kid stuck in the middle (school), or a jaded grown-up, DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE MUSICAL is simply irresistible, and I think it's going to go far. (more...)
