BWW Reviews: Gulfshore Playhouse's GOD OF CARNAGE Goes for Laughs Instead of Truth
by Justin Cowan - Oct 21, 2012

Yasmina Reza is not known for creating comedic characters. She is known for creating extremely real and flawed characters that in their truth are incredibly comedic. There is a very nuanced but very real difference there. It is unfortunate that Nickell could not make Heads or Tails of this…because he had the talent in his cast to deliver it flawlessly. (more...)

by N. Morrison - Jun 14, 2014

by Pat Cerasaro - Feb 11, 2011

In honor of Sunday's broadcast of the 53rd annual Grammy Awards on CBS and today's early-morning premiere of Lady Gaga's newest single off of her forthcoming sophomore album (sharing the same title as the song) BORN THIS WAY, in this week's Flash Friday and Saturday we are taking a look at some of the most memorable Grammy moments from the past - and casting a glance towards the future as we take a listen to the new Gaga track. What we can expect from her highly-anticipated first live performance of the electronica anthem - as well as from performances by Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Hudson and more - in the nearly-four-hour broadcast celebrating all genres of music on Sunday? Also, what will win best cast album? We can be sure we are in for one hell of a show - after all, some of us were just born to set the stage ablaze, as today's goo-goo-for-Gaga FLASH FRIDAY and tomorrow's super-special-Babs-blow-out SATURDAY SPECIAL surely do attest.

Exclusive InDepth InterView: Jason Alexander Talks Reprise!, LUCKY STIFF, TWO BY TWO, SEINFELD, Sondheim & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Dec 15, 2012

Today we are talking to a Tony Award-winning Broadway and Hollywood notable all about his terrifically theatrical background - having appeared in musicals ranging from his debut in the ill-fated MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG to his Tony Award-winning work in JEROME ROBBINS' BROADWAY to most recent role as the artistic director of LA's lauded Reprise! Theatre Company - the one and only Jason Alexander. Expounding upon his big Broadway break in Stephen Sondheim & Harold Prince's MERRILY and what it was like to witness the two titans as they developed the piece, Alexander shares his insights into the art of Broadway and also casts a glance back at his roles in Kander & Ebb's THE RINK, Mel Brooks's THE PRODUCERS and directing Sondheim‘s musicals himself (such as SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE with frequent InDepth InterView participant Kelli O‘Hara). Alexander also opens up about some of his most celebrated dramatic and comedic work to date - to say nothing of the iconic TV dynasty of SEINFELD, we also touch upon the TV movie musicals adaptation of A CHRISTMAS CAROL (with a score by Alan Menken & Lynn Ahrens), co-starring Kelsey Grammer, and Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA, (with fellow InDepth InterView participant Bernadette Peters), as well as his recent appearance on HARRY'S LAW and more. Plus, Alexander outlines his featured role in the forthcoming Christopher Ashley feature film adaptation of the Ahrens & Flaherty musical comedy LUCKY STIFF, the future for a revival of the Richard Rodgers/Martin Charnin Bible-based Moses musical TWO BY TWO (co-starring SMASH's Megan Hilty once again, perhaps?) - and much, much more!
