BWW Review: BATTERY DANCE FESTIVAL Continues to Enthrall

'Lovely, never, never change. Keep your breathless charm. Won't you please arrange it? 'Cause I love you.'

It was just a couple of swells dancing with their lady-friends to the type of tunes that Gram and Pops listened to when new; back when 'it weren't no sin' to revel in the unabashed sunshine of life.

BWW Review: CARNIVAL is a Dazzling Magical Delight
by Frank Benge - Aug 12, 2016

CARNIVAL is a musical that originally appeared on Broadway in 1961, with a book by Michael Stewart and music and lyrics by Bob Merrill. You may better know Merrill as the writer of the lyrics for Funny Girl. It is based on the 1953 MGM film Lili. The show is seldom produced; outside of the original production's National Tour; only a handful of productions have been done professionally, and one of those was a staged concert version. The main reason is the difficulty of the music. I am pleased to report that not only does the Summer Stock Austin production handle the score beautifully, the entire production is a dazzling, magical delight. (more...)
