Mixed Blood Theater Presents A COOL DRINK A WATER 9/17-10/10 2010/08/26
Posted: 9/20/2010
Ken - I’m interested in comments on "A Cool Drink of Water" opening at Mixed Blood. I enjoyed the o pening performance Friday and found it to be comical, insightful and entertaining. What are some thoughts, comments and observations? I liked the contrast between a younger and older couples dealing with interpersonal communication within family conflict in modern society and between the differences in values observed from a past generation. Both presented in an enlightening and humorous interaction. Jones performed Walt; whose character I felt carried the most energy, with exceptional talent. Both couples communication process and evolution in resolving separate conflicts in their relationship was interesting. Answers to the stress of dealing with modern day pace, trust within relationships, and the issues relating to work and career are answered in the portrait of generational values. Each character added dimension and was played with talent. What was the meaning of the value of the home in today’s economy? Was that in cultural jest?

Robin Lipman - ROSLYN KIND IS AMAZING!!!! I HIGHLY recommend anyone in the Los Angeles area or anywhere in the vicinity to make their way to the Catalina Jazz Club to see her perform and to hear her spectacular voice in person on October 8th and 9th! You will be SO glad you did!!! I personally am flying out to Los Angeles from Florida just to see her show, and have done so on many occasions at venues all across the country. She is SO worth the trip! There are literally NO WORDS to describe how AMAZING she is! Her GORGEOUS voice soars as she goes from one song to the next – beautiful ballads, jazzy numbers, and standards. In addition to her phenomenal voice, her comic timing is impeccable and she exudes such warmth and personality, the audience just can't get enough of her! Here is your chance to be one of those lucky people - don't miss your chance!!!!

JRD - Words cannot express how I felt about seeing this show.. As a native New Yorker and seeing many musicals on broadway such a rent, wicked, Lez Miz etc.. I can truly say I laughed and cried numerous times... the emotional impact this show created left me feeling exhausted and exhilarated at the end.... The music was showstopping and heartbreaking and the story of Twist is one I will never forget... EVERYONE should go see it!

@AlexAlano - Joanna was wonderful! She had all of us at our feet with her high notes! I'd love to watch her live again. My favorite parts of the show was when she sang All I Ask of You and The Last Time I Felt Like This with Ariel Rivera, Let's Hear it for the Boy, Defying Gravity and For Good! She was so gracious when we talked to her and asked to have photos with her too! :) God bless you always Joanna! And congratulations on your engagement! :")

BWW Reviews: Twist - an American Musical 2010/09/18
Posted: 9/19/2010
T. Fredericks - This was one amazing play. it was an emotional roller coaster from the opening. The tap dancing that starts off the show is a reminder of the great dancers of the 30's and 40's; literally like watching the hoofers like Fred Astair's agility and grace and even Sammy Davis Jr's leaps and plain fun. I have now seen it 2 times and saw even more on the 2nd night. The singing left me breathless a few times and crying on others. Fast paced - yes, funny, yes, heart warming, yes. A few must see dance numbers is the ghosts in the coffin scene - hold on. it has an African beat with a twist, the orphans number on "meat" and using wooden spoons makes you want to join in. So with song, dance, an emotional story line that is as real today as it was in the 20's or 20's or 40's - this is a hit!!

John - One shouldn't dismiss Carrie as impossible. It may never be a great work of genius, but now, with a cult following and a better understanding of why it was so horrible/awesome the first time, the show is surely reworkable into something people can pay attention and enjoy for its great aspects. Also, I always liked "Don't Waste The Moon." It's a shame to hear they've removed it.

Zimmerman Adapts CANDIDE in Major Musical Revival At The Goodman, 9/17 2010/09/17

Jose Garcia - Except for the singing, it was the worst of all possible worlds! The orchestra was weak at its best. Props were either loudly dropped off stage or accidentally fell down from above, curtains were stuck and then removed by a visible yet unwelcome hand. Lyric's Butterfly was visually plagiarized early on during the second act, shortly before the production had to be stopped due to malfunctioning stage craft. The audience was actually asked to leave the house for more than a half hour, causing some theater goers to leave. The set was stark. Altogether a very bad night.

From the powerful opening number till the last, it was filled with the most amazing musical score and dance interpretation ...one moment after the next. A truly memorable roller coaster ride of an experience. The muscial score was so moving each piece is a stand alone number that singers will love to perform. Bravo!

Addison DeWitt - I was there opening night and although I liked the piece, it sure needs some work. Too many songs and frankly, not enough dancing. But most importantly, it's the book that needs a lot of work. There's a story for certain, but the emotional impact doesn't land and that's because the focus of the piece, despite the title, is not on the young Master Twist. It's on a melange of characters who supposedly influence him yet he's never played by the young man with any real sense of purpose to learn who he is. I might suggest that the point of view for the audience is Twist and therefore he needs to be impacting whether he's in a scene or not. I also felt like Della is a break out character and a tour de force role. Yet she's in and out. Once she births that baby she has to be conflicted and much more engaged in keeping him safe. I liked the musical. it was too long, but once Debbie Allen let those dancers rip it on the floor, I was hooked.

BWW EXCLUSIVE: CARRIE Coming Back to Broadway 2010/09/17
Posted: 9/19/2010
Ray Workman - Bringing CARRIE back to Broadway makes about as much sense as bringing back DUMAS AND SON, 1491, PICKWICK, LOVELY LADIES, KIND GENTLEMEN, GONE WITH THE WIND (The Stage Musical), or ANY number of Broadway musical flops of the past. Why not revive COCO with Nancy Reagan, Barbara Bush or Barbara Walters? Some shows need to STAY BURIED. Remember when some flops "Opened and Closed at the same performance?" That doesn't happen so much these days as most shows open with several months prepaid in the bank.

BroadwayGirlNYC: Luck of the Lotto 2010/09/02
Posted: 9/19/2010
Jay - Nice in theory --- but Broadway is not philanthropic, it's a money-maker. The Producers offer a certain number for Lotto, and I'm quite sure they've crunched the numbers to know exactly how much money they're willing to "lose" to encourage attendance, stoke word-of-mouth buzz, and create even more demand for the show. Perception is almost as important as money, so if the perception is that this elusive ticket or lottery is hard to get, that only inspires people to want it more, and vouches for the show being worth the waiting, clawing and crying to get in. Producers are smart and they wouldn't be in the business if not to make as much of their money back as possible, and that only goes so far when you're giving it away. They're nice but they're not that nice!

Melissa J. - I felt the production had great songs and choreography. It was a bit overloaded with music and the subject matter felt too dated. New Orleans has always had a huge amount of bi-racial people. I read that the author of Twist wrote this some time ago. He might have had more bi-racial people in the production. Anyway, I hope they work out the kinks, because I read they want it to go to Broadway.
