BWW Review: PARLANDO NEW YORK DEBUT at Merkin Hall
November 11, 2019

Auspicious debuts seem to be in the air in NYC this fall. Last month the new Athens Philharmonic blew the roof off Carnegie Hall with an extraordinary Mahler 2 in its debut, and this month a new ensemble called Parlando did the same at Merkin Hall - in a vastly different kind of program.

BWW Review: NJ SYMPHONY PERFORMS GRIEG AND BRAHMS at Bergen PAC
November 7, 2019

Composer Jean-Féry Rebel was something of a rebel (sorry could not resist) in late 17th and early 18th century France for his use of unusual often dissonant harmony. Les Elémens ('The Elements') which describes the creation of the world was a radical work for its time and still feels surprisingly modern.

BWW Review: AIDA THE MUSICAL at White Plains Performing Arts Center
October 17, 2019

Aida is widely considered one of the grandest of grand operas. The task of converting it to a Broadway musical was a daunting one. Book writers Linda Woolverton, Robert Falls, and David Henry Hwang took liberties with the original libretto in a manner they believed would make the plot more relatable to the general public - while that is a question of taste, what is could not be changed was the epic size of the story - Pharaohs, Kings, and Princesses implicitly carry a certain about of gravitas. And the WPPAC production delivers in a big - very big way.

BWW Feature: THE FUTURE OF CLASSICAL MUSIC IS 'INSIDEOUT' with Maestro David Bernard
September 3, 2019

I have seen the future of Classical Concert-Going and it is called INSIDE OUT! Two years ago, Maestro David Bernard began an experiment in classical concert-going. He had a bold new idea to intimately integrate the audience directly into the concert by literally seating them within the orchestra among the musicians -the idea being to create a totally immersive symphonic experience. Two years and more than a dozen performances later, the experiment has been a success on every level. Thousands of spellbound audience members can attest to the visceral power of live music performed by a 60-piece orchestra on all sides of you.

BWW Review: TUCK EVERLASTING at White Plains Performing Arts Center
August 9, 2019

According to their website, WPPAC's STAGE 2 'bridges the gap between the WPPAC Educational Department offerings and the Mainstage, giving college and community performers the opportunity to work in a regional theatre setting under the guidance of professional artists.' No such disclaimer is necessary for their new production of Tuck Everlasting, it is every bit as first-rate as their mainstage productions.

BWW Review: THE LITTLE FOXES at Elmwood Playhouse
July 23, 2019

'Bitingly sinister' and 'one of the most cruelly realistic character studies yet seen' was the way Lillian Hellman's classic play, 'The Little Foxes,' was first described. And amazingly enough nearly a century later it retains all of its odious power.
