The Apollo Theater will bring the New York premiere of TWISTED MELODIES, an intimate one-man production about the life, artistry, and struggles of 1970s soul singer and composer Donny Hathaway, to its iconic stage, 45 years after Hathaway himself last performed on it. From his hits with Roberta Flack, his solo songs, and his work as both an arranger and studio musician for artists such as Aretha Franklin, Curtis Mayfield, and the Staples Singers, to his diagnosis of schizophrenia, Hathaway's personal struggles both inspired and hampered his music. On the 40th anniversary of his untimely death, Hathaway will be honored posthumously with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in February 2019, celebrating his influence and contributions to the music industry that continue today. Directed by Derrick Sanders and featuring Kelvin Roston Jr., this limited engagement at the Apollo Theater opens on Thursday, May 30 and runs through Sunday, June 2. Ahead of the production, a free Live Wire conversation with musician Gordon Chambers, "Everything is Everything, the Music of Donny Hathaway," will take place on May 13 at 6:30p.m. as part of the Theater's education series that honors iconic artists who have impacted the arts and culture.

Following the release of their 7” single 'Runnin', Ohtis today announce the release of their debut album Curve of Earth on 29 March via Full Time Hobby (home to White Denim, Timber Timbre, Michael Nau, Katie Von Schliecher etc). To herald the announce, Ohtis release the album track “Rehab.” The band's Sam Swinson notes, “Rehab was a fox hole prayer, a lot of the songs on the record were. I grew up in an American Christian church that believes in a Santa Claus God, always saying please do this or that, please give us this or that. So naturally when I was hating myself for being a hopeless junkie fuck up I went begging him to make me good. When I did it was usually slightly tongue in cheek, because I hadn't believed in Santa Claus for a long time and I had been listening to the Louvin Brothers a lot so I understood the value of Old Testament irony. I wrote it at my friend Jimmy's house in South Carolina. He'd bought me a bus ticket to come from Stone Mountain Georgia where I'd spent a few days sleeping under a bridge, begging people at Subway for change to get drunk on Steel Reserve. I was stranded there after being kicked out of a type of Christian work camp called Teen Challenge which operates under the guise of being a treatment center. They had me digging graves at a grave yard 12 hours a day everyday except Sundays, which was reserved for letting the lord do his work on us. I ended up drunk driving Jimmy's truck into a ditch and he sent me on my merry way. Needless to say I was feeling very bad about myself which produced this emo country song.” (more...)

BWW Interview: Ashley Lane of INSPECTING CAROL at The Village Players Of Birmingham Says You're Going to Laugh!
by Katie Laban - Jan 15, 2019

The Village Players of Birmingham are kicking off the new year with an uproarious and zany comedy, Inspecting Carol, opening this weekend, January 18th and running through February 3rd in Birmingham. Behind the scenes of a struggling theatre's annual slapdash production of A Christmas Carol, rehearsals are at a standstill. Tim is no longer Tiny, Scrooge wants to do the play in Spanish, and their funding is on hold pending an inspection. When an impossibly bad actor is mistakenly identified as the inspector, the troupe does everything to accommodate his craziest wishes. Mistaken identities lead to side-splitting comedy as opening night draws and it seems only a Christmas miracle will save this production! Ashely Lane is making her directorial debut at The Village Players of Birmingham after directing at the Emerald City Theatre and Farmington High School. Lane was very passionate and excited to discuss with BroadwayWorld Detroit her love of the arts and why Inspecting Carol is such a fun and special show everyone should see. Check out her interview below! (more...)
