BWW Review: '27' is a Diverting Evening on the Left Bank with Gertrude and Alice B.
by Richard Sasanow - Oct 24, 2016

In many ways, '27'--the 90-minute the chamber opera about Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas and their circle, composed by Ricky Ian Gordon to a Royce Vavrek libretto--is an old-fashioned love story. It just happens to be about two women who entertained and collected (in all senses) some of the most important visual artists and writers of the first half of the century at a time when Paris was still the hub of the artistic world and 27 rue de Fleurus, The Women's home, was its epicenter.

BWW Review: RENT's 20th Anniversary Tour Thrills TPAC Audience on Opening Night in Nashville
by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 19, 2016

It's hard to believe that Jonathan Larson's epic rock musical masterpiece, Rent, debuted on Broadway, making headlines around the world, winning the Pulitzer Prize and bringing a whole new generation of audiences to the theater 20 years ago. Larson who died just prior to the show's 1996 off-Broadway opening didn't live to see the acclaim with which his musical - based upon Puccini's La Boheme - was greeted, but if we believe in such things, we may rest assured that since his untimely demise he has watched over Rent's evolution, which includes the 20th Anniversary production now touring the country in an astounding revival which reaffirms its place among the very best of American musical theater.
