BWW Review: THE FLYING DUTCHMAN at Theater Erfurt - This DUTCHMAN finally takes flight on the wings of Kelly God's magnificently sung Senta BWW Review: THE FLYING DUTCHMAN at Theater Erfurt - This DUTCHMAN finally takes flight on the wings of Kelly God's magnificently sung Senta
by Mark Janicello on April 16, 2018 in Germany

Theater Erfurt's General Director, Guy Montavon was responsible for nearly turning THE FLYING DUTCHMAN, (Der fliegende Hollander) Richard Wagner's technicolor, romantic dream of an opera into a black, white and grey nightmare. The story of the Dutchman, Wagner's tragic 'pale Sailor' cursed by Satan to wander the seas eternally on a ghostly ship, who is finally rescued by the chaste love of a sea captain's daughter, (Senta), was nearly capsized by Montavon's very questionable directorial concept and exacerbated by absurd choices in the makeup-, lighting- and costume designs.

by Mark Janicello on April 02, 2018 in Germany

At the Deutsche Oper Berlin on Saturday night, David Pountney, director of CAV/PAG saddled these beloved works with a concept so profound in its stupidity that it was often mind-blowing and jaw-dropping in its inanity. If there is a special club in Hell exclusively for bad stage directors, Mr. Pountney has earned a lifetime membership. (more...)

BWW Review: WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? at Renaissance Theater - A  magisterial Klaus Christian Schreiber as George saves this WOOLF from devouring itself. BWW Review: WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? at Renaissance Theater - A magisterial Klaus Christian Schreiber as George saves this WOOLF from devouring itself.
by Mark Janicello on March 22, 2018 in Germany

WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? Edward Albee's lacerating diatribe on the power dynamics in a marriage is a dissonant fugue with many variations. Klaus Christian Schreiber, as George, dominates the Renaissance Theater's very commanding production with a magisterial performance that saves Virginia Woolf from devouring itself.  Orchestrating his emotions like Herbert van Karajan with the Vienna Philharmonic, Mr. Schreiber delivers a virtuoso performance that turns this production into a personal triumph.

If you want 'bang' for your entertainment buck, make a beeline to the Theater im Keller's Website and try to secure a ticket to BERLIN? WE! LOVE! YOU! As the show only performs on weekends and seating is very limited, I would advise you to plan ahead and take any ticket you can get, but get into that theater and watch these talented comedic actors strut their collective stuff.

by Mark Janicello on March 04, 2018 in Germany

Last night, at the Comic Opera of Berlin I was gobsmacked.  Their production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF was hands down, the single best performance I have ever witnessed in my 24 years living and working in continental Europe.  Nothing else I have ever seen, anywhere on continental Europe, even comes close. Run, Crawl, Beg, Borrow or Steal... but get tickets to this show. (more...)

by Mark Janicello on March 02, 2018 in Germany

An "officially licensed" touring production with the blessing of both Dan Ackroyd and Judith Belushi (John's widow) The Blues Brothers is a highly-choreographed, very entertaining, commercial product that has no pretense of being artistic … and that is it's greatest asset. This is pure, escapist entertainment. This is a show where you check your brain at the door and just enjoy the music, the atmosphere and admire the discipline and professionalism of the artists onstage. (more...)

BWW Review: GHOST at Theater Des Westens, Berlin - GHOST scares up a star-making performance from former German 'Idol' Alexander Klaws BWW Review: GHOST at Theater Des Westens, Berlin - GHOST scares up a star-making performance from former German 'Idol' Alexander Klaws
by Mark Janicello on March 01, 2018 in Germany

GHOST in Berlin's historic Theater des Westens, has almost every element needed to be a great evening of musical theater. The only thing missing in this musical is the music. The set, video and lighting design (Hans Kudlich and Michael Grundner, respectively) are nothing short of spectacular. The „ghostly" stage effects (designed by Nils Bennett) are surprisingly good and a few times, awe-inspiring. The script (in a very good German translation by Ruth Deny) was written by Bruce Joel Rubin, who was responsible for the screenplay of the 1990 film as well. (more...)
