Next week, Portland, Maine trio Weakened Friends will head to Europe for a number of dates alongside We Were Promised Jetpacks. Not long after that, they'll pack up the van once again for a lengthy US jaunt with Blis. Which is all to say, there's a good chance that Weakened Friends are coming to a town near you this fall.

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

Gloucester Stage Company is the first theater in the country to produce THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT following its SRO limited run on Broadway. Based on the 2012 essay/book co-written by John D'Agata and Jim Fingal, the play explores the conflict between an unorthodox author (D'Agata) and the young fact-checker (Fingal) assigned by his magazine editor to vet a groundbreaking piece about a teen's suicide in Las Vegas. GSC mounts its production with local luminary and Academy Award nominee Lindsay Crouse, New York and Off-Broadway actor Mickey Solis, and recent Harvard University graduate Derek Speedy, making his Gloucester debut, under the direction of the estimable Sam Weisman.

Of course, it's different but let's hope for the best, it will stay with us from now on. Things have changed, getting into the theater and into your seat might be different but hey, you still get the chance to enjoy live theatre and that's rare these days. Chapeau to the Vienna Volksoper and their team. Their Covid-19 prevent concept made it possible to reopen the house again. SWEET CHARITY, the Musical based on Fellini's movie 'Nights of Cabiria', is telling the story of the taxi dancer Charity Hope Valentine. When you are talking about SWEET CHARITY names like Bob Fosse, Gwen Verdon, Shirley MacLaine are coming to your mind. Fosse created a masterpiece, his choreographies are something unique, and of course something you can't replicate. Director Johannes von Matuschka and his Choreographer Damian Czarnecki decided to create something un-Fosse. When you are used to Rich Mans Frug's Magic and all the Fosse Stuff, you might be disappointed. Nevermind the dance numbers are entertaining bur forget the missing Fosse magic. Enjoy the star of the evening. Austria's very own Lisa Habermann, starring as Charity Hope Valentine is something you can't miss this theatre season, undoubtful a first-class Leading Lady. Habermann is the Charity HOPE Valentine of our time! Charmingly, cheeky, and adorable from the very first minute. Peter Lesiak's performance as Oscar Lindquist brought back memories from the days when Mel Brooks THE PRODUCERS was in town and he was performing his heart out as Leo Bloom. Seems like nothing has changed since then. He is as brilliant as ever. The cast is full of first-class artists like Caroline Frank ( Helene), Julia Koci (Nickie), or Drew Sarich ( Daddy Brubeck) who was dressed as a mash-up from Hedwig and Frank'n Furter a transcendent preacher in a surreal staging. The show lost some of its tempo in Act 2, it felt like slowing down after Drew Sarich's psychedelic performance.

After a successful world tour that saw over 75 artists with over 150 acts touch the hearts of more than twenty-five cities in both hemispheres, La Soiree comes back home where they started off their adventure eight years ago. The show graces the atmospheric setting of the Spiegeltent at Christmas in Leicester Square, and act after act the show is jaw-dropping. From a powerhouse singer to a trapeze artist, from a hola-hooping sensation to vaudeville slapstick comedians, you can rest assured you won't be disappointed.

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!).

Theatre Raymond Kabbaz (TRK) presents La perle de la Canebiere (The Pearl of Marseille). The play is performed by La Troupe du Theatre Raymond Kabbaz (TRK's Gang) and directed by Pierre Leloup. La perle de la Canebiere (The Pearl of Marseille) is a single act comedy, performed for the first time in Paris (Theatre du Palais Royal) in February 1855. The play was written by Eugene Labiche and Marc Michel, both fine observers of the French society of the 19th century. What happens in this pearl ? The action takes place in a very bourgeois and conservative society, greatly unreceptive to poetry and any kind of eccentricity. Thereson Marcasse, the outgoing pearl, the free and generous marseillaise, shatters this incredibly narrow world. The pearl is a bomb of excessiveness in a world of moderation.

Per il quinto anno consecutivo, la Bernstein School of Musical Theatre scalda l'estate bolognese portando in scena cinque musical nell'ambito del Summer Musical Festival. Dopo gli appuntamenti in due dei teatri piu importanti della citta ("All Shook Up" al Teatro Il Celebrazioni e "Crazy For You" al Teatro Duse), il 29 giugno il Festival ha abbracciato uno scenario diverso ed originale: un tendone da circo. Il 29 giugno debuttano infatti due spettacoli di produzione BSMT, "Assassins" e "Bernarda Alba", nel tendone del MagdaClan Circo montato nel Parco di Villa Angeletti, in quella zona della citta con una pessima reputazione piu comunemente nota come Bolognina che, almeno per quattro sere, e stata piu Broadway e meno Bronx.

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.

Rejoicer has announced a new album, Spiritual Sleaze, out February 14th on Stones Throw Records. Today Rejoicer shares the second single from the album, “Pre Memory Circle”, which comes with distinctive artwork from long-time visual collaborator Jengo whose artwork for the album was made to resemble alien rocks, coal from a different planet, or lucky stones — items of obscure natural origin that, much like Rejoicer's music, leave meaning wide open to interpretation.

n the midst of a polar vortex this winter, MN Opera sends an early valentine filled with warmth to the Twin Cities in their production The Italian Straw Hat at the Ordway Center's Orchestra Hall. This comic Italian opera set in 1950's Paris plays similar to a French farce while sung in Italian and accompanied with English subtitles. Composed and written by Nino Rota and his wife Ernesta, the composer earned accolades for his film scores written for Federico Fellini, and "The Godfather," both the first and second versions. In this opera, Rota's mid-century comedy, a groom's horse eats an expensive straw hat on the morning of his wedding day while his father in law's patent leather shoes fit too tight. Sound extraordinary? Yes, all is wondrous mayhem as this Parisian wedding spins out of control and delightful events happen on stage throughout this enchanting opera.

The couple behind (and front and center of) THE EMPTY NESTERS, JW Walker and Pamela Gaye Walker certainly validate the adage 'A couple that works together, stays together.' With a working and personal relationship spanning decades, JW and Pam take time from their respective day jobs, (he producing at Disney/Pixar Studios, she running their production company Ghost Ranch Productions) to bring THE EMPTY NESTERS to the Zephyr Theatre (beginning January 17, 2019) a play they both have a heartfelt connection to. These two multi-taskers were gracious enough to carve out some time to answer my queries.

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.

Last night, I saw the completely charming production of 'La Famille Addams' at Th tre Le Palace. This musical written by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice with words and music by Andrew Lippa is based on popular American cartoon strip 'The Addams Family' which later became a television series with a huge cult following. I fondly recall watching this series when I was a boy. Mr. Charles Addams' characters have also appeared in two Hollywood feature films. I would say it would be hard to find someone who hasn't heard of this kooky family.
