BWW Review: GROUNDED Dramatically Exposes 'Eye in the Sky' at The Rep
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Mar 8, 2017

The Milwaukee Repertory Theater's multi-award winning play Grounded, grounds a pregnant woman fighter pilot while also grounding the audiences in the intimate Stiemke Studio's compelling and complex production. George Brant's contemporary 2013 play demonstrates how drones have transformed both fighter pilots and the 'games of global war' because in the 21st century, drones hover over the skies of foreign countries similar to space ships in a violent video game. Either movement controlled by one person in a solitary cubicle or sitting in front of a tiny screen. Instead of B-15 bombers that fly into the blue manned by pilots, men and women, presently sit in front of huge screens sequestered in silence waiting and watching for any movement so drones may attack from across the world in the name of 'reducing the loss of human life.'

BWW Review: MARILYN HORNE SONG CELEBRATION at Zankel Hall Shows What Makes America Great
by Richard Sasanow - Jan 30, 2017

At last month's concert in Carnegie Hall, Joyce DiDonato was glorious musically but less-than-cheery philosophically--and that was before the guy in the White House started taking aim at arts and education funding. Taking the stage at Carnegie's Zankel Hall on Saturday, at THE MARILYN HORNE SONG CELEBRATION, Marilyn Horne was in a feistier frame of mind about the fight for our hearts, minds and souls--though she admittedly hadn't figured out a way for her personally to take on the battle . It seemed to me that the evening, with emerging singers and the great guest, was a pretty good way to get the ball rolling. (more...)

ABC Announces New Year's Programming, Including CHARLIE BROWN, RUDOLPH, and More!
by TV News Desk - Dec 26, 2016

The ABC Television Network and the PEANUTS gang will ring in the new year with the half-hour animated PEANUTS special, 'Happy New Year, Charlie Brown,' created by late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz. In 'Happy New Year, Charlie Brown,' the PEANUTS gang is ringing in 1986 and Marcie and Peppermint Patty are throwing a big New Year's Eve bash. Charlie Brown plans to celebrate the holiday by curling up with a big book that weighs nearly as much as he does: Tolstoy's War and Peace. The book's weight doesn't stop him from lugging it to Lucy's pre-party dance class, where he cuts a mean rug with a rollicking Patty. With just 1131 pages to go, Charlie Brown takes another break, this time for the party, and summons the courage to invite his true love, the little red-haired girl. She doesn't respond, but hapless Chuck shows up anyway - with Tolstoy in tow. Then he settles down with the book - on a porch swing in a snowstorm, and in so doing, misses the evening's big surprise. This broadcast of 'Happy New Year, Charlie Brown' airs MONDAY, DECEMBER 26 (8:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m EST) on ABC. (more...)
