InDepth InterView: Michael John LaChiusa Talks GIANT, Upcoming Projects & A Career Retrospective
by Pat Cerasaro - Jun 23, 2013

Today we are talking to a spectacularly talented composer/lyricist noted for his incredibly impressive and accomplished oeuvre thus far, having collectively composed more than twenty full-length musicals, operas and specialty performance pieces - Michael John LaChiusa. Discussing his vast array of projects from BUZZSAW BERKELEY to FIRST LADY SUITE, HELLO AGAIN and THE PETRIFIED PRINCE Off-Broadway through to his double-header in the 1999-2000 millennial season with MARIE CHRISTINE and THE WILD PARTY both on Broadway to his Off-Broadway, regional and international successes since, ranging from LITTLE FISH to another two-show-season in 2006 with BERNARDA ALBA and SEE WHAT I WANNA SEE as well as THE HIGHEST YELLOW and the recent Americana-themed epic musical pseudo-trilogy of LOS otros, QUEEN OF THE MIST and GIANT. Additionally, LaChiusa touches upon some of his lesser-known work, such as his musical revue HOTEL C'EST L'AMOUR, various operatic pieces, additional material he provided for pieces such as The Seven Deadly Sins and his previous and upcoming solo musicals for continuing collaborator Audra McDonald, such as SEND (who are you? i love you) and MARLENE DIETRICH'S ABCs OF LOVE. Most importantly, LaChiusa takes us behind the scenes of the sparkling new deluxe cast album for GIANT, starring Brian D'Arcy James, and discusses the themes, ideas and adaptation of the Edna Ferber novel itself in a fascinating and revealing analysis of the vast, enveloping and vivid score he has composed for GIANT. Also, LaChiusa offers the 411 on this year's Tony Awards specialty song composed for host Neil Patrick Harris and some starry cohorts (Megan Hilty, Laura Benanti and Andrew Rannells), as well as previous Tony show one-offs penned for Hugh Jackman and others. Plus, LaChiusa clues us in on his upcoming projects - including FIRST DAUGHTER SUITE - and much, much more in this career-spanning conversations with one of modern musical theatre's most daring and prolific artists.

Our Houston Theatre Christmas Wish List
by David Clarke & Kristina Nungaray - Dec 24, 2013

'Twas the night before Christmas, and through the Houston area people were shopping, cursing their error. Why did they wait for the last few minutes to buy so many holiday presents? Cozy, at home, two theater enthusiasts discussed theatrical amusements. There were funny shows, and sad ones. Some had music and joviality, while others encouraged civic responsibility. But, sadly, the list of dream shows to see just grew and grew. Wouldn't it be great if Houston produced just a few? They may have been done, but not since we started seeing everything. Oh, Santa and producers, please make true our Christmas dreams. (more...)

HANKS ON HEALTH: Why Americans Can't Always Trust Rx Drugs
by Stephen Hanks - Apr 5, 2013

'I'll tell you why America has a drug problem,' begins a riff of the late and legendary comedian/satirist George Carlin. And before the audience can think his routine will be a commentary on illegal hallucinogens, Carlin careens into another track. 'Everybody has access to drugs because there are so many DRUG stores. Every three or four blocks, there's a big sign-DRUGS. Open all night-DRUGS. We deliver-DRUGS. Cut rate-DRUGS. It's the biggest thing on their signs: cosmetics, sundries-DRUGS! It's no accident that our country is so drug-oriented. The drug companies got us that way and they want to keep us that way. It all starts with that little colored aspirin for children.' While such a cogent commentary would be relevant today given the dangers of some prescription drugs, Carlin performed this drug routine on the album FM & AM in 1972-41 years ago. Carlin's comedic observations have always been ahead of the curve; it's a shame he turned out to be prescient on the subject of pharmaceutical drug use in America. (more...)
