BWW Review: Annapolis Shakespeare Company Opens Their New Cabaret Space With An Evening Celebrating THE AMERICAN SONGBOOK
by Kristen Price - Oct 16, 2017

The cabaret show has been a staple in the entertainment industry for some time. Singers and performers alike relish the opportunity to tell stories in a different way than they're used to, while performing songs they've never had the opportunity to sing. These evenings are more intimate and audiences are given the chance to feel closer and more in tune with the performers than they would be in a theater or larger concert venue. And while there are music clubs and small venues in Maryland, there aren't many theaters providing this type of intimate entertainment on a regular basis. (more...)

BWW Review: THE PAJAMA GAME at Arena Stage
by Elliot Lanes - Nov 9, 2017

Some musicals from the golden age of Broadway are done to death. Let's face it, how many productions of Guys and Dolls and Fiddler on the Roof can you take? Anytime a theater chooses to produce a show that isn't seen as often as the aforementioned ones I get very excited. When they are presented well, my musical theater geekiness goes into overdrive. Arena Stage has put my geekiness into overdrive with its current production of the 1954 tuner The Pajama Game. With the exception of a production at Roundabout Theatre Company a few years back, this show really isn't performed very often professionally anymore. (more...)
