Certainly, if you're looking for a festive night on the town with your family this holiday week, WHITE CHRISTMAS at Dr. Phillips Center is your ticket. There's something quaint about heading downtown for some simple entertainment to ring in the holiday. And to this production's credit, the set design is (for the most part) vivid, detailed, and impressive. Ditto the costuming, a distinctly 2000s interpretation of the 1940s and '50s. The grand finale is stunning in both respects...

I like him right away. He listens to my questions and gives them some thought before he answers. It's the same thoughtfulness I've noticed in interviews over the years when he talks about music, the songs he likes, or the faith he follows. He's called to talk about his brand-new Christmas album, WINTER IN THE AIR, and its accompanying national tour - David's first time on the road in quite a while...

November 3, 2018

As of last fall, JERSEY BOYS has been seen on the stage by more than 25 million people around the world. So,is it really that good? Tough question. My first instinct is to say JERSEY BOYS ain't all that. It's a backstage, jukebox, rise-and-fall musical, a combination that ought to be the broadest, most formulaic thing you've ever seen. Yet, it surprises...

Night after night, three dead-ringers for Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy rush from behind a cemetery gate to the front of the stage, the towering Cinderella Castle lit up in spooky candelabras (impressively projection mapped) behind them. Without fail, the crowd either gasps with surprise or screams in delight, not having been prepared for something quite this true-to-film...

Sometimes the piano is front and center. Other times - often - it's forgotten altogether. The ole ivories are a mere MacGuffin, and not a particularly compelling one at that. The show isn't really here to tell us about a piano, or about the characters who buy and sell it...
