With a freewheeling energy driven by the still simmering melting pot of influences that drive his musical passion - traditional jazz, R&B and hip-hop - the full length collection is the culmination of a multi-faceted journey that transcends easy definitions. It's always evolving with a sense of grooving and improvisational wonder and discovery. (more...)

BWW Reviews: KISS ME, KATE schafft unterhaltsamen Openair-Abend in Bad Hersfeld
by Iris Moebius - Jul 31, 2014

Nach dem sensationellen Erfolg von „Show Boat" im letzten Jahr warteten die Bad Hersfelder Festspielen in diesem Jahr mit "Kiss Me, Kate" mit einem weiteren Klassiker auf. Das Musical aus der Feder von Cole Porter spielt hinter (und vor) den Kulissen einer musikalischen Inszenierung von Shakespeares "Der Widerspenstigen Zahmung". Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei Diva Lilli Vanessi (Katharina Mehrling), die nach langerer Zeit im Filmgeschaft wieder zu ihren Theaterwurzeln zuruckgehrt ist, um die Rolle der Kate an der Seite ihres ehemaligen Geliebten Fred (Thomas Borchert) zu spielen. Wie bei einer solch explosiven Besetzung kaum anders zu erwarten, kommt es am Premierenabend zu reichlich Konflikten zwischen den beiden, die auch das Geschehen auf der Buhne beeinflussen. Als Lilli frustriert mitten in der Auffuhrung abreisen will, kommen zwei Ganoven zur Hilfe, die finanzielles Interesse am Erfolg der Show haben. Sie uberzeugen Lilli mit nicht ganz lupenreinen Methoden davon zu bleiben. (more...)
