BWW Review: Stunning TWILIGHT OF THE GODS at the Washington National Opera

Director Francesca Zambello's Gotterdammerung is truly awesome-in both the original and contemporary senses of the word.  The conclusion of a four-part epic, this six-hour installment depicts the final struggle for ownership of a magical ring whose owner might rule the world-but which also holds a dire curse for all who come into contact with it.

Their trail leads them through foul swamps, towering mountains, raging blizzards and lush forests as they seek out the secrets of Michael's existence. They must be wary, however. There are dark forces trying to conquer the lands. From the east rises one who calls himself the Overlord, and he will not rest until all of Valhalla bows to his will. With his grip tightening around the land's throat, there looks to be no one to stop him. (more...)

BWW Reviews: A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM at Cabrillo Music Theatre
by Cary Ginell - Feb 1, 2016

Cabrillo Music Theatre's near-perfect production of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, which opened last night at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza's Scherr Forum, brings back the classic, broad humor from vaudeville, performed by an inspired cast of crazies who not only aren't afraid of anything going wrong, but are probably HOPING for mishaps that would destroy any other show. This is, of course, because Forum is one of those shows where spontaneity and the unexpected is almost as obligatory as Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart's uproarious script and Stephen Sondheim's witty lyrics.
