Based on the novel by Henry Fielding

Women canít keep their hands off Tom Jones, a man of unknown parentage but undeniable charm. Tomís heart belongs to the virtuous Sophia Western, but when he finds himself the center of female attention and all manner of romantic complication, everything seems to stand between the two. Former Producing Director Jon Jory returns with his rollicking adaptation of Henry Fieldingís classic comic tale of scandal, sword fighting and the bewildering power of love.

BWW Review: New Line Theatre's Fantastic CELEBRATION
by Chris Gibson - Oct 13, 2016

Though I'm extremely familiar with Tom Jones' (words) and Harvey Schmidt's (music) most popular work, THE FANTASTICKS, I had never seen their follow up, CELEBRATION. What I'd read while doing research was that it really fizzled once it was on Broadway. However, after seeing it I can understand why; it's a smaller scaled show that requires just the right venue to succeed. That's why I'm so glad New Line Theatre opened their 26th season with this fanciful and tune-filled musical. Through their superlative efforts we're able to see the premiere of a version that's been revised by Tom Jones. I'm not sure what was changed, but what we're privy to is a very engaging and entertaining production that will make you wonder why it isn't performed with more regularity. The score itself is gorgeous, and I cannot recommend this neglected gem highly enough. (more...)

BWW Review: SINATRA 101 Puts You at the Sands with Frank and his Big Band
by Shari Barrett - Nov 29, 2016

As a lifelong fan of Frank Sinatra thanks in part to my Mom being one of the bobbysoxers who fawned over him as I did for the Beatles, I was thrilled to jump at the chance to attend SINATRA 101 at the El Portal in Noho on November 26, 2016 at one of the 2 shows they did that date. Since 2011, Matt Mauser and the 101 Big Band led by Pete Jacobs have been playing Frank Sinatra's greatest hits with high-octane arrangements. Their collaboration captures Sinatra at the height of his career at the Sands Hotel in early 1966, backed by Quincy Jones conducting the Count Basie Orchestra. (more...)
