BWW Review: Upstream Theater's Truly Special THE GLASS MENAGERIE
by Chris Gibson - May 6, 2016

I've always appreciated live stagings of THE GLASS MENAGERIE far more than the attempts by Hollywood to turn it into a film. They always spoil it by messing with the ending. It's a melancholy slice of playwright Tennessee Williams' life, albeit, one that bears more than a slight resemblance, but which has been fictionalized to a degree. And, you won't find any tacked on 'happy ending' here, which is the way I like it. Williams disowned the first film version, and rightly so. It's not meant to be neatly resolved, and that's why it makes an emotional impact. Upstream Theater's current production is brilliantly staged, cast, and directed. I don't think I've seen a finer presentation, or one that was as engaging as this one. I think it's a must-see, even if you've seen the play many, many times before. This is a fresh and lively take that's well worthy of your time and attention, so go already!

BWW Review: BEN VEREEN Finds Magic to Do at Catalina Jazz Club
by Don Grigware - Dec 21, 2015

On Friday December 18 the legendary Ben Vereen came to Catalina Jazz Club for his latest one-man cabaret An Evening with Ben Vereen. Backed by three fabulous musicians, musical director David Loeb at the piano, Tom Kennedy on bass and Marc DiCianni on drums, Vereen took the stage for 70 minutes and let fly. There was enough energy and passion abounding for three performers, let alone one. Known as a primo dancer, that was at a minimum, as he is approaching 70, but he moved in constant rhythm across the stage and back as he lovingly sang 20 songs, mostly from Broadway. There was very little patter; Vereen poured his soul into the work and kept his packed house begging for more.
