Review: Maine State Ballet Revives the Magic of CINDERELLA

Maine State Ballet revives one of its favorite classics, CINDERELLA, in an elegant and ageless production with the choreography of Linda MacArthur Miele and the design wizardry of Gail Csoboth.  The production, grounded in the Balanchine tradition in which Miele was nurtured, is eloquent in its disarming simplicity of narrative and timeless traditionalism of its dance.  Set to Serge Prokofiev’s stirring score, Miele’s eighty minutes of dance offers an afternoon of enchantment.

The interesting thing about The Nutcracker at the Merrill Auditorium in Portland, Maine is just how quickly an audience can settle into it, year after year, like a cup of hot chocolate on a cold night. The venue is packed with an audience of all ages, some dressed in their 'night on the town' finery while others sport flannel shirts, jeans and a baseball cap. That's the magic of this production, a full-scale ballet and orchestra that appeals to a wide-ranging audience here in Maine.

BWW Review: DEAR BRUTUS, Southwark Playhouse

In a quaint little 1917 English village, a weird old man invites eight strangers to say at his house. The choice of guests is anything but casual, as they all have something in common, even though they don't know what it is. When a mysterious wood appears on Midsummer Night, their lives take an unexpected turn. As directed by Jonathan O'Boyle, J.M. Barrie's Dear Brutus is compelling and elegant, with a text that's still fresh and modern.
