BWW Review: Los Angeles Youth Ballet's NUTCRACKER Scores With A Delightful, Whimsical And Polished Presentation At The Alex Theatre
by Valerie-Jean Miller - Jan 8, 2019

The weekend before Christmas, The Los Angeles Youth Ballet presented a gorgeous, colorful and professional performance of The Nutcracker at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA. The production was very carefully constructed, with an emphasis on good technique, passion and commitment in performance and lovingly re-created by Artistic Director and Choreographer, Andrea Paris-Gutierrez. It was staged and choreographed optimally for each age group performing. Enchanting might be an adjective to describe the feeling the performers were emitting to the viewers, who's rapt attention was a sign of both enjoyment and endorsement. The Nutcracker Suite was composed by Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky, and has long been the favorite balletic composition to be performed during the Christmas Season. (more...)

BWW Review: Village's I DO! I DO! a Show about Commitment, That Lacks Commitment
by Jay Irwin - Jan 18, 2019

As a self-proclaimed musical theater geek, I'll admit to some gaps in my geekdom and Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt's 1966 musical "I Do! I Do!" falls squarely into that gap. Before going to see the current production at Village Theatre I knew nothing about it. I don't even think I've heard the errant song from it off one of my many compilation albums. And now having seen it I'm more than happy to let it fall back into obscurity. With its paper thin, almost conflict free storyline, and songs that simply peter out into an air of forgetfulness, the only thing that saved the evening were the two people performing the show, Kendra Kassebaum and Peter Saide, but even they couldn't save this one.

As a result, the tale of a young teen's personal growth and exploration, set against a house full of family conflict and financial strife, takes the audience on a ride which they all seemed to greatly enjoy on the evening I viewed the show.

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope Comes To Feinstein's/54 Below
by BWW News Desk - Dec 10, 2018

FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, Broadway's Supper Club, presents Mark Farrelly in Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope on 29th and 30th January 2019 at 7pm. West End actor Mark Farrelly (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) brings his hugely-acclaimed solo play Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope to Feinstein's/54 Below direct from a major UK tour for its first ever American performances. Naked Hope magically brings back to life one of the most memorable wits of the twentieth century. Quentin Crisp (1908 - 1999) spent years in London being beaten because of his sexuality, and famously never cleaned his flat because "after the first four years the Dust doesn't get any worse." When portrayed by John Hurt in landmark film The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin became a star, moved to America, and was embraced as the original Englishman In New York, immortalized in the hit song by Sting. Naked Hope depicts Quentin's life in London and New York, recreating the legendary An Evening With Quentin Crisp. Expect laughter, pathos, and deep truth in this uplifting salute to the courage of the human spirit to be itself… no matter what they say. (more...)
