Relaxing has always been a difficult state of mind for me but over the years, as I approach a certain age - my close friends will tell you I have been 30 for ever and even they don't really know how old I am - I am increasingly throwing caution to the wind and appreciating holiday/vacation time

THE MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT, the play that dare not speak its name, has a lot to say. In spite of the almost immediate negative reaction of some people to the title, the production makes for a very compelling evening of theatre. Congrats to Dobama for not steering away from the script because of the title and the realistic language.

Grande debutto ieri al Teatro Brancaccino di Roma: la Capitale accoglie con applausi entusiastici e scroscianti RePlay - the musical, lo spettacolo 'off-Broadway' scritto da Mauro Simone e Fabio Ingrosso con musiche di Fabio Ingrosso e Riccardo Scire, candidato - tra l'altro - ai Premi BroadwayWorld Italia 2013 (qui la notizia). Applausi ben meritati, aggiungerei, di un pubblico che ha affrontato i primi freddi romani pur di assistere a questa delizia. L'idea di base e di per se interessante: quattro personaggi, due storie che trascendono tempo, spazio e dimensioni. Da un lato abbiamo la perfetta love story tra due ragazzi newyorkesi, Dave e Amy. Dall'altro abbiamo l'amore 'travagliato' tra Nico, un insicuro doppiatore italiano, e Giulia, la sua psicoterapeuta. I due piani scorrono in parallelo, sfiorandosi appena in un epilogo dolceamaro che ribaltera le carte in tavola (non svelero altro, se volete sapere come va a finire andate a vederlo!).

There is an embarrassment of riches on display in Tennessee Repertory Theatre's production of The 39 Steps - not the least of which is the cumulative effort of four of Nashville's finest actors showing off everything in their estimable bag of tricks to bring this enormously entertaining play to life. Add to those efforts another stunning set by Gary Hoff, Trish Clark's period-perfect costumes, Michael Barnett's gorgeous lighting and Paul Carrol Binkley's stellar sound design and you clearly have one of the season's most successful offerings, technically and artistically delivered.

Es ist ein schöner sonniger Tag in Berlin. Ich bin mit Daniela Ziegler in einem kleinen Café in Charlottenburg verabredet. Sie kommt mit dem Fahrrad - ganz schön sportlich. Daniela Ziegler ist charmant, sieht blendend aus und plaudert mit mir offen und herzlich über ihre lange Karriere. Sie ist eine Frau mit vielen Facetten und hat eine lange, erfolgreiche Vita an TV, Film und Theaterprojekten vorzuweisen, ist Schauspielerin und Musicaldarstellerin mit Leidenschaft. Wir konzentrieren uns im Gespräch 'nur' auf ihre Musicalrollen und reden beinahe zwei Stunden. Es gibt viel zu erzählen, verkörperte die Ziegler doch so illustre und unterschiedliche Charaktere wie Eva Peron, Velma Kelly, Norma Desmond und ab September die Erzherzogin Sophie in 'Elisabeth', Harry Kupfers Jubiläumsinszenierung zum 20. Geburtstag des Musicals. Daniela Ziegler spricht über ihre Rollen, Glücksmomente im Theater, Pannen auf der Bühne und warum sie keine Auditions mehr macht.

The current Stephen Sondheim tribute show, Our Time, starring KT Sullivan and Jeff Harnar at the Laurie Beechman (which I attended on July 9 and 16; there are two more Wednesday performances at 6pm on August 6, 13), is a charming, classy, and entertaining affair. But it also includes enough flaws in execution that prevent it from being truly great. For one thing, it doesn't really feel like a duo show. It's more like two solo performances within one show, where the performers fit in a couple of numbers together to justify the concept. A critique of the Sullivan/Harnar Sondheim set provides an interesting opportunity to analyze the anatomy of a duo show and the choices that can make it work—or not.

Truly one of the most elegant, though underrated musicals of the new century, THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA---now on stage in a lovely new production at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa through February 23---follows the uneasy journey that a loving, though over-protective mother must embark on when her daughter discovers the wonderfully vulnerable world of adult love. Filled with a gorgeously sweeping score by Adam Guettel and an insanely talented cast, this Italian journey surely ranks as one of the best, most attractive musicals SCR has mounted in recent years.
