by David Friscic - Dec 19, 2021

The Kinsey Sicks are back! With a militant vengeance and a satirist’s lampooning eye, this hilarious Dragapella Barbershop Quartet, entertained the Theater J audience in their show The Kinsey Sicks in Oy Vey in a Manger with a raucous and resounding devilish leer. Traditional Holiday lyrics were turned upside down ---and were encrusted with lewdly lascivious lyrics that had the audience almost falling out of their seats with laughter.

BWW Review: PARSONS DANCE COMPANY'S POWERFUL REPERTOIRE AND PERFORMANCE PAYS OFF  at  Photo BWW Review: PARSONS DANCE COMPANY'S POWERFUL REPERTOIRE AND PERFORMANCE PAYS OFF at Segerstrom Center For The Arts
by Valerie-Jean Miller - Dec 4, 2021

Artistic Director and Choreographer David Parsons himself introduced the single performance evening at The Segerstrom to a thirsty audience, eager to see the dance company that had been lauded in advance at the beginning of this year's season and of course the much awaited return to live performances and audiences. He gave us a revised rundown of the pieces that were to be performed that night. He is very personable, relatable and captivating as he explains their endeavors, processes and the added hardships Covid placed on the company. The dancers, over the past year-and-a-half were in seven separate 'bubbles' to be able to work on and perfect the choreography. We learned after the performance, in a short Q & A with the dancers and David, that some of the dancers had only been with the company a few months! Their repertoire is quite extensive and precise with many lifts and lots of technique; not an easy feat! And not easy on the feet! They did not disappoint!
