BWW Review: The Wait is Finally Over - CHICAGO's Fervent Return to Artscape Opera HouseBWW Review: The Wait is Finally Over - CHICAGO's Fervent Return to Artscape Opera House
by Lindsay Kruger - Mar 18, 2019

Fosse'd to the nth degree, CHICAGO returns to the Artscape leaving audiences with one word in mind… "class". Clutching at the heels of the original New York production using choreography by Gary Chryst and the indistinguishable re-creation of staging and costuming, this silky musical is presented like a slice of top-end Broadway on South African soil a decade since its last showcase.

Now, it returns with the requisite stunt casting (Cuba Gooding Jr), but also with a cast of triple-threat stalwarts who illustrate the enduring strengths of this whip-smart, black-hearted musical.

BWW Review: ABT's 'The Golden Cockerel' Is More of a Grandiose Theatrical Production Than a Ballet
by Sondra Forsyth - Jun 8, 2016

ABT's Resident Choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, who created the version of 'The Golden Cockerel' that had its company premiere on June 6th 2016, is quoted in a Playbill article by Caroline Hamilton as saying, 'This production is overwhelmingly theatrical'. Ah, so that explains why there is virtually no dancing in the entire first act and very little in the second act! A little research reveals that Ratmansky reportedly added more dancing after getting less than laudatory reviews in 2012 when his 'Cockerel' opened in Copenhagen. Yet mime still predominates, which is the legacy of the unwieldy and heavy original costume designs by avant-garde artist Natalia Goncharova for the 1914 and 1937 Ballet Russes opera ballet productions of 'Le Coq d'Or' with choreography by Fokine. (In 1914, 'baby ballerina' Tamara Karsavina danced the role of the Queen of Shemakhan with Enrico Cecchetti as the Astrologer. The Cockerel was a stage prop.) (more...)
