BWW Reviews: Virago Theatre Company's AROUSAL and The LoverBWW Reviews: Virago Theatre Company's AROUSAL and The Lover
by Linda Hodges - Sep 9, 2013

Virago Theatre Company's 'shameless passion for theatre' comes alive - twice in one night - with AROUSAL, a new play by George Pfirrmann, and The Lover by Harold Pinter. Together, the two sensuous one acts equal one impressive night of theatre that you won't want to miss. Playing now thru September 28, this double feature satisfies the desire for excellent and though-provoking theatre even as it tantalizes the audience with unanswered questions, and toys with erotic situations and the roles we play in life and love.

'WICKED' Opens at TPAC's Andrew Jackson Hall'WICKED' Opens at TPAC's Andrew Jackson Hall
by Jeffrey Ellis - Sep 4, 2009

Everything you've heard about Wicked is true; it's an awe-inspiring stage spectacle filled with special effects, gorgeous sets and lighting, exquisite costumes, an amazingly gifted cast, a glorious musical score and an immensely entertaining, yet slightly irreverent (and maybe even a little subversive) script. It also has plot points so broad that you could drive a freight train through them, but if you're willing to suspend disbelief and allow yourself to become totally immersed in the phenomenon, you can't help but walk away tremendously satisfied, humming those wonderful tunes and having a sort of 'which came first: the chicken or the egg' debate with your companions.

BWW Reviews: MEMPHIS THE MUSICAL Brings Its Electrifying and 'Fantastical' Tale to Music CityBWW Reviews: MEMPHIS THE MUSICAL Brings Its Electrifying and 'Fantastical' Tale to Music City
by Jeffrey Ellis - Nov 16, 2011

Memphis, the musical, is a lot like Memphis, the city: You either love it or you hate it. But if you let its sincerely heartfelt story and evocatively written music wend its way into your heart, you'll find your soul. With the national touring company now ensconced at Tennessee Performing Arts Center's Andrew Jackson Hall through Sunday, it's easy to see why Memphis won the 2010 Tony Award for Best Musical, its spirit is infectious, its music glorious and its cast - what a stunning ensemble they are! - nothing short of wondrous.

California Author Releases 'Tales From The Loon Town Café'California Author Releases 'Tales From The Loon Town Café'
by BWW News Desk - May 2, 2014

It's the go-go 1980s when journalist Wally Pearson gets mugged in Times Square. It's a jolt that prompts him to throw away his career and open a cafe in his small hometown. Little does he know that in doing so he's about to get entrapped in the collision of fame, fortune, ambition and love in the northwoods of Wisconsin-all tempered with more than a little delusion. 'Tales from the Loon Town Cafe' seeks to capture the unique character and rhythms of small Midwestern towns. But it also recognizes The Undercurrent of despair and sometime downright loopiness that emerges when most everyone thinks they know most everything that's going on. But of course they don't really know all, and that's why 'Tales from the Loon Town Cafe' is ultimately a mystery of life. 'Tales From The Loon Town Café' is available in both print and ebook format. Book Details: Tales From The Loon Town Café By Dennis Frahmann Publisher: DF Books ISBN: 978-1482555073 ASIN: B00BGT0158 Published: March 2013 Pages: 332 Genre: Literary Fiction About The Author: Dennis Frahmann is a journalist, writer and award-winning marketer who grew up in small towns in Wisconsin and now lives in Cambria, California.

SOUND OFF: Another Op'nin', Another SMASHSOUND OFF: Another Op'nin', Another SMASH
by Pat Cerasaro - May 1, 2012

Kicking off the plot-packed night, Cole Porter's classic KISS ME, KATE showbiz paean "Another Op'nin', Another Show" was given a full-bodied and exciting rendition by Christian Borle - with a gloriously accentuated arrangement courtesy of SMASH songwriter Marc Shaiman; seemingly channeling Barbra Streisand and Peter Matz - and, with that, the SMASH train left Manhattan and hit Boston for the tryout of the musical-within-the-series, BOMBSHELL. While Rebecca Duvall (Uma Thurman) may play the director of the show, Derek (Jack Davenport), better than she does her actual role in the musical - Marilyn Monroe - she is not the only member of the rich and varied ensemble on SMASH to be playing or being played (or both) - or hitting the occasional wrong note or two. With only two episodes left in Season One, the threads are being wrapped up into what is shaping up to be a pleasingly complex and colorful tapestry. (more...)

Certainly that's what I've been doing lately, looking back over the past year in Nashville theatre as I pencil in dates in my new 2010 (Here's a question to ponder: Is it 'two thousand ten' or 'twenty ten'...think about it and get back to me) calendar for the shows set to open in the months ahead.

SOUND OFF Special Interview: Rumer's BOYS DON'T CRYSOUND OFF Special Interview: Rumer's BOYS DON'T CRY
by Pat Cerasaro - Aug 15, 2012

Today we are talking to one of the most alluring and anomalous recording stars on the rise all about this week's US release of her sophomore album, BOYS DON'T CRY, a tribute to male songwriters of the 1970s - the ethereal Rumer. Discussing many aspects of this new release, as well as her previous studio work - such as her Burt Bacharach Christmas EP - Rumer sheds some light on what makes her such an arresting and intriguing performer to follow for the enthusiasts of intimate, revealing, performance-based artists around the world, as she herself reveals the early influences - Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand and Karen Carpenter most of all - that have shaped the unmistakable sound she continues to perfect on this moody, subdued and intoxicating new cover album. Plus, Rumer offers forth candid recollections of participating in recent gala concert presentations - none the least of which would be her superb "A House Is Not A Home" on the PBS Burt Bacharach edition of IN PERFORMANCE AT THE WHITE HOUSE - as well as recounts her own favorite performances, performers and albums and what she plans for the future; another new album is already in the ether! Additionally, Rumer also shares her thoughts on GLEE, provides amusing anecdotes about famous friends like Darryl Hall and Duffy, compares the recording industry now to the era BOYS DON'T CRY pays tribute to, recalls reactions to her dynamic new covers of these rare pop gems - all of that as well as much, much more!
