BWW Review: Celebrating Irving Berlin: MSMT Launches Concert Series with I LOVE A PIANO BWW Review: Celebrating Irving Berlin: MSMT Launches Concert Series with I LOVE A PIANO
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold on June 19, 2018 in Maine

MSMT's all-singing, all-dancing tribute to Irving Berlin, I Love a Piano, blew the Pickard Theater audience away at two Monday performances with its steady stream of classic hit tunes, its high energy choreography, and the dazzling virtuosity of its youthful cast. This was an afternoon and evening to sit back and revel in the rich history of American popular music and to celebrate a composer whose work provided the soundtrack for the American experience for almost seventy years. It is exciting to watch MSMT's cast of young professionals perform this material with so much connection and commitment. Though this is the music of past generations, the eleven-person ensemble of remarkable triple threat actors brings it vibrantly to life for a contemporary audience, affirming the truism that longevity is what makes great music.

BWW Review: Happily Ever After: MSMT Presents Robin and Clark's CINDERELLA with a Contemporary Twist BWW Review: Happily Ever After: MSMT Presents Robin and Clark's CINDERELLA with a Contemporary Twist
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold on June 13, 2018 in Maine

There is a moment in Robin and Clark's musical version of Cinderella when the scullery maid screws up her courage and hurls a self-affirmation back to her abusive stepmother and sisters, saying, "No! I've always done everything you asked and now it is time for me to do something for myself!" The audience young and old erupts into spontaneous applause for this very contemporary heroine. Though Marc Robin and Curt Dale Clark's musical is more than twenty-five years old, it speaks with a freshness and an appeal that are as lasting as the fairy tale itself, and Maine State Music Theatre's most recent production captures all the delightfulness and the darkness of the story and serves it up with customary flair.
