BWW Review: AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE's 'La Fille mal gardťe' Revives The Spirits With Bucolic CharmBWW Review: AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE's 'La Fille mal gardťe' Revives The Spirits With Bucolic Charm
by Juan Michael Porter II - May 26, 2016

'La Fille mal gardee', Frederick Ashton has given us folksy innocence, clever games, and sunny smiles. That smile was perfectly embodied by soloist Jeffrey Cirio, making a splendid debut as Colas in the opening performance of this life affirming ballet. He is more than ably assisted by a cast of tremendous artists who give of themselves completely to making these simple country characters sparkle. And what characters! With an opening danced by five chickens -- four hens and one manic rooster -- how could it be otherwise? (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Micah Young - May 24, 2016

What would you do if failure was an option?  What would you think if you didn't need to be right?  I wouldn't suggest leaping off a cliff without a parachute, but I think there is pressure in all fields, to be right and to be successful.  And who doesn't want to be successful?  More money, more power, more opportunities.  But when we are creating, or even having a discussion, being able to simply say, "I don't know" has a stigma attached to it.

It is difficult to examine a situation with clarity.  Often our passion for a project, our love for a job or our opinions about the people involved make it hard to make a clear-cut decision.  There are some situations where our own well-being is at stake; it is in these situations we have to make the hard choice of staying in the situation or finding a way to remove ourselves.

BWW Interview: Choreographer Jennifer Paulson-Lee Talks YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWNBWW Interview: Choreographer Jennifer Paulson-Lee Talks YOU'RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN
by Bob Rizzo - May 23, 2016

It's only a few moments before choreographer Jennifer Paulson- Lee will watch her cast give the press a 'sneak peek' of their rehearsals. They're preparing to perform three musical numbers from 'You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown' which will be presented at The York Theatre beginning this week for a limited engagement. What's unique about this revival is the fact that a pint-sized cast of 9 to 13 year olds is performing all the roles. But don't let their ages fool you. This young bunch of talented thespians has a list of professional credits that any seasoned 35-year-old performer would envy. As the press files into the theatre, Paulson-Lee is busy making last minute corrections on her young charges. She is gentle and soft-spoken yet gets her point across to these eager children who take her notes and make the adjustments on the spot. The mutual love and admiration between this gang of peanuts and their dance master is all too evident. (more...)
What Morley Safer Got Right About Contemporary ArtWhat Morley Safer Got Right About Contemporary Art
by Barry Kostrinsky - May 23, 2016

It was odd watching the pre-memorial segment on 60 minutes a week ago about a soon to die Morley Safe. It felt like a Monty Python sketch and I expected Morley to blurt out, " I'm not dead yet." (more...)

On paper, Lawrence Goldhuber/Bigmanarts contrasted with Christopher Williams -- both theatrically inclined and unafraid of being wacky -- sounds marvelous. Marvelous dance evenings are certainly what Mr. Parker usually presents, but many hours after the fact I am still waiting for the magic of May 19th, 2016 to coalesce.  (more...)
BWW Dance Review: AMANDA SELWYN DANCE THEATRE Debuts Second Year of FOOTPRINTS Modern Dance FestivalBWW Dance Review: AMANDA SELWYN DANCE THEATRE Debuts Second Year of FOOTPRINTS Modern Dance Festival
by Christina Pandolfi - May 23, 2016

Amanda Selwyn Dance Theatre premiered the second edition of its modern dance festival May 19, 2016 at the Marjorie S. Deane Little Theater on West 64th Street in Manhattan. Comprised of six distinct pieces from different choreographers, the night was a tribute to the creativity of movement and how it collectively inspires us all. But the way in which these pieces were curated left something to be desired. The flow felt disjointed; choreographic styles were often polarizing from one piece to the next, making the audience consider only what was directly in front of them without further context or the continuation of any theme.

If you have ever attended a classical voice recital, you probably saw an elegantly dressed performer situated near the crook of a grand piano for the duration of the performance.  Traditionally, recitalists remain standing with "noble" posture throughout their program, and only gesture with their hands and body for extreme emphasis.  (more...)
