BWW Review: LA CAGE AUX FOLLES: The Best of Times at Reagle Music Theatre of Greater BostonBWW Review: LA CAGE AUX FOLLES: The Best of Times at Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston
by Nancy Grossman - Aug 12, 2019

In the summer of 1983, Jerry Herman and Harvey Fierstein put on a show that was light years ahead of the zeitgeist, vis-a-vis the awareness and acceptance of LGBTQ people in America, and about twenty years before the legalization of same-sex marriage. Yet, after a successful tryout at the Colonial Theatre in Boston, they boldly went where no Broadway musical had gone before when they opened LA CAGE AUX FOLLES at the Palace Theatre on August 21, 1983. Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston concludes its 51st Summer Season with LA CAGE, and I am pleased to report that the show continues to stand the test of time. The three most important components for a successful staging of this musical are the two actors who play the leading men, Georges (J.T. Turner) and Albin (James Darrah), and the dance troupe who comprise Les Cagelles, the drag performers at the Saint-Tropez title nightclub owned by the latter couple, and they collectively win the trifecta.

Scott H. Biram and Jesse Dayton Release Collaborative Covers 7”Scott H. Biram and Jesse Dayton Release Collaborative Covers 7”
by BWW News Desk - May 30, 2019

Fellow Texan guitar outcasts Scott H. Biram and Jesse Dayton collaborated for a two-song 7” release, Monkey David Wine / Single Again. On Side A, ground zero outlaw David Allan Coe's “Monkey David Wine” gets a sinister gut bucket blues duet treatment. It lands about 11 feet away from Screamin' Jay Hawkins on a ten foot chain. Side B is Gary Stewart's “Single Again.” The cool-as-can-be song is a shaggy-haired, floppy-hatted prime taste of '70s rebel country. (more...)
