Gema Castaño llevará su 'Gema Latina' al Teatro Arenal 2011/01/07
Posted: 1/8/2011
yoestuvealli - Yo estuve allí y, desgraciadamente, esto es lo que me pareció: Como siempre una buena voz, pero pocas canciones, enlazadas con un texto bastante pobre y vulgar (con comentarios ofensivos) que la artista tenía que consultar en varias ocasiones porque se perdía, cuando al público no le agradaba un comentario (sobretodo en un momento de críticas carentes de sentido a otros artistas del panorama nacional) ella se quitaba la culpa de lo dicho justificando que es lo que ponía en el guión, demasiadas alusiones a amigos situados en el público y totalmente ajenos a otras personas que habíamos pagado nuestra entrada... bastante desastroso, tal vez poco ensayado.

BroadwayGirlNYC: The Quiet Season - Winter on Broadway 2011/01/06
Posted: 1/8/2011
Joanne Theodorou - I hope you will continue your good work...you are a happy medium, not a dour, gossipy critic....between Broadway and its audience and we need a real person (with financial limitations like the rest of us!! )reporting for us. I think stage performers understand the symbiotic relationship between audience and performer i.e. we both need each other, but sometimes that tends to get lost. You manage to remind us all . So keep up your optimism and let us hear from you....!

TWITTER WATCH: Tonight's SPIDER-MAN Performance Halted Multiple Times? 2011/01/07
Posted: 1/7/2011
Betts - Stoppages are not uncommon for this show, there is so much going on. Was at the December 30th show and it was stopped twice. First when Spiderman could not make his platform, his rigging had twisted and he lost momentum, so he needed to be lowered on to the stage. Second time, was near the end, netting props got snagged when it was coming up from below. I am wondering, one month until opening, will they be able to perfect it all, the Flying, Props, set changes, yep, wondering.

James Taylor Concert Sells Out At Memorial Auditorium 3/26 2011/01/07
Posted: 1/7/2011
Jensen - It's no surprise the concert is sold out -- Taylor was the first and still the best of the singer/songwriters. There have been lots of myths about the meaning of "Fire and Rain." I posted the story behind the song's lyrics on my Rockaeology blog at http://tinyurl.com/358fhey Thanks!

Mare - I LOVE Barbara...BUT... she's too big a name. I mean when people go to see Gypsy they won't see Mama Rose, they'll see and hear BARBARA . Arthur, if you're reading this, don't let this happen with such a GREAT story. It will be another "Hello Dolly" ending.

Josh Groban's ILLUMINATIONS Gets 11/15 Release 2010/11/10
Posted: 1/7/2011
Doug Thom - I purchased Illuminations and think it's great but the recording is spoilt by a rumbling base sound on the right channel that begins towards the end of the London hymn track and continues into the Straight to you track. The disc has been replaced twice by the local hmv store in Aberdeen Scotland as they have confirmed the disc has a recording fault. They have offered me a full credit can you advise what I can do now as I think the music is excellent all I would like is a disc that plays properly. In all the years I have been building a record collection I have never encountered this problem before.

Update: Streisand Interested in Starring, Not Directing GYPSY; Producers on Board 2011/01/05
Posted: 1/7/2011
hattanman - Herbie is not really a singing role. Don't forget he has no solos, only sings a little of Small World and You'll Never Get Away From me--"Rose, I love you, but don't count your chickens"--and mostly group or character singing in You'll Never Get Away. Remember that the original was Jack Klugman!

Update: Streisand Interested in Starring, Not Directing GYPSY; Producers on Board 2011/01/05
Posted: 1/7/2011
hattanman - I agree that this is a highly risky project for BS but she's no dummy. I do believe that she is looking for something that will be a spectacular punctuation to her career (not that she needs it.) The other comments that Arthur Laurents made about how she could pull off the obvious age gap with the role as well as things she told him about her own mother being a "Mama Rose" were interesting. And he wouldn't let her do this if he didn't think that she would "go for the jugular" which Rosalind Russel did not. And Streisand's willingness to put this into the hands of a director (other than herself) indicates she's willing to take the necessary risks to make this work. I for one can't await and predict that criticism would run the full love/hate spectrum and that box office would be through the roof...

Gas South Broadway Presents OKLAHOMA At Cobb Energy Center 1/6-9, 2011 2011/01/06
Posted: 1/7/2011
Ben Crider - I was excited to see a new professional company doing musicals in Atlanta. But I was very disappointed by the production of Oklahoma. The actors were talented, But don't expect people to pay your prices to see a cast stand in a straight line and sing along to two synthesizers and a drum set. The sets and props were similarly underwhelming.

Human Race Theatre Mourns Loss of Artistic Director Marsha Hanna Today, 1/3 2011/01/03
Posted: 1/7/2011
Michael McConnell - It was a pleasure to have known Marsha and a privilege to have worked with her at The Human Race. For the theater-going public in that part of the country, and the Race Family specifically, to be bereft at this very sad time would make sense to anyone (except, probably, Marsha). As you all undoubtedly know, she didn't spend all those years and all that energy lighting fires and building bridges for it all to evaporate, so here's to the memory of the glorious Marsha with all best wishes to her thoroughly capable producing partner, Kevin Moore, and also to his talented colleagues. All the best as you celebrate Marsha Hanna, and move the great work forward.

DAVE MIJARES - WORST SHOW I EVER SEEN. IT'S ALMOST AN INSULT HOW BAD DIRECTED IS. THE ITALIAN ACTOR SUCKS. IT'S A SHAME THAT THE REST OF THE CAST WHICH ARE EXTRAORDINARY ACTORS ARE IN THIS PRODUCTION, WHAT A WASTE. BLAME ON THE DIRECTOR AND THE ITALIAN ACTOR WHO PLAYS DRACULA, WHO IS NOT AN ACTOR REALLY AND IS NOT EVEN CUTE. I FELT ROBBED IN A THEATRE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE. 30 YEARS SEEING THEATRE ON AND OFF BWAY AND NEVER SAW SUCH A TERRIBLE SHOW.
