Sometimes the piano is front and center. Other times - often - it's forgotten altogether. The ole ivories are a mere MacGuffin, and not a particularly compelling one at that. The show isn't really here to tell us about a piano, or about the characters who buy and sell it...

A girl made of glass. Gods and murders. A serial killer's friends. And a secret in a bottle. Four stories by Caryl Churchill. Let's see what the critics had to say.

All politics is personal, as the saying goes. Seldom is this point made with greater dramatic clarity than in Miss You Like Hell. The ending is powerful, but because of the politics. Miss You Like Hell illustrates, in a very personal and detailed way, how deportation policies damage and destroy lives and families, even away from the border. An enjoyable and uplifting evening of theater.

During his entire career, Peter Joback has gone from musical to pop back and forth. In recent years, he has been dedicated to the musicals as he played the Phantom of the Opera Phantom, both in West End, Broadway and Stockholm. However, together with Kathryn Williams, Tobias Froberg and Tobias Karlsson, he has written songs for a new pop album. The first time he released a taste of it was in London almost 4 years ago when he sang 'Beliver' in a stripped version. Now he has recorded 10 songs, all with amazing arrangements with a band, strings and brass with exception of the song, Call Me By Your Name, performed only by a piano. Resound is a perfect choir which, along with the skilled musicians and Peter's voice, completes every song.

This revival of Kenneth MacMillan's Manon is a visual and aural delight that should melt the heart of even the most reluctant ballet sceptic.

After World War II was over, we saw an increase in the American population thus characterizing that peace, love making lovers as 'the baby boomer' generation. They of course in turn gave birth to what is known as Generation X bringing a new age emergence of punk rock, grunge, and apparently both awesome and tasty cocktails. Generation X gave us millennials.

When describing Hat Trick's brilliantly twisted production of Mindgame, the only thought that came to me as the lights faded to black was "what the" and I word I cannot write in print. The manipulation was so intense, yet you don't realize the emotional roller coaster you were on until the last scene.

Over the past few years DC's Constellation Theatre Company (CTC) has branched out from its mostly classical offerings by presenting a few musicals. They include the blockbusters Avenue Q and Urinetown and one lesser known entity – the Andrew Lippa version of The Wild Party. In all three cases, the shows fit perfectly into CTC's home at Source.

Anemone might be the  brainchild of Montreal's Chloé Soldevila but it's the chemistry between each band member that really brings the band to life. Today the band is announcing their debut album Beat My Distance on Luminelle Records. To celebrate they are releasing a new song from the album titled 'Sunshine (Back To The Start).' Soldevila explains the song is about 'Overcoming the pattern of falling in love with someone who is unworthy, but that you still believed it could work. I called it 'Sunshine' because this song should resonate positively - it is about focusing on the bright side and coming out a stronger person; daydreaming of better, sunnier days.' Flaunt Magazine shared the song today, calling it '...perfect to accompany this Indian Summer.'

Morgan Page's 2008 single 'The Longest Road', featuring Lissie's now iconic vocal is, without doubt, one of the most important records in modern US electronic music, a cut so sweeping and sublime that it captured the imaginations and hearts of a new generation of clubbers and spearheaded one of the biggest cultural youth movements in the history of the United States.

PIECE OF MINE Arts and Theatre Passe Muraille's THE NEGROES ARE CONGREGATING is a wickedly smart, biting examination of what it's like to be a Black person in Toronto today. Through a series of vignettes, the three-person ensemble transform into dozens of characters to portray scenes focused on subjects like police brutality, racial profiling, and micro aggressions. With subject matter like this, it would be easy and understandable for the darker elements of the work to overwhelm. Thankfully, the variety of the ensemble's strengths helps to lift the piece to something that can discuss serious topics with black humour.

After Michel Le Grand's Donkeyskin, which gave the genius composer one more chance to see his immortal music on the stage and the intimate Sondheim review Marry Me a Little in the Studio, Theatre Marigny and Jean-Luc Choplin are now getting into the real thing by putting on a full production of classic musical with a entirely British creative team and cast playing and singing in English with subtitles. Though Theatre Marigny is much smaller than the Chatelet, similar productions there such as Kiss Me Kate and the Sondheim cycle were scheduled for only few weekd runs, An American in Paris was a Broadway tryout, so it easily sold out its two-month run, thanks in no small part to visitors from abroad. My Fair Lady, 42nd Street, and Singing in the Rain had already played in Paris before, although in French or on tour but were already part of the general public consciousness as movie favourites. Guys and Dolls, on the other hand, which has never been seen in Paris before or not even on tour, has an intrinsically American subject matter and only a now hardly watchable movie version, only known among French cinephiles as the only musical in which Marlon Brando appeared, teaming up with Frank Sinatra.

For their third show of the summer season, Music Theatre Wichita presents A Chorus Line-- Michael Bennett's beloved concept piece about auditioning for coveted spots in a Broadway production. The show itself debuted forty-four years ago this time in July and follows sixteen performers as they fight for a job in the chorus. Auditioning dancers lay out their entire lives on a single line through stories, mostly dramatic, to tell the ultimate truth of what it's like to simply tryout. A Chorus Line ranks top seven in longest running Broadway production in musical theatre history but is now showing until July 14th at Century II Concert Hall for a limited engagement.

We can placate a certain segment of society by providing 'enrichment' courses in the arts, but it should no longer be a mystery that you can't achieve holistic education without a strong emphasis in the arts. The US Bureau of Economic Analysis recently released an astounding statistic that reports over $763 Billion of contribution by the arts sector to the US economy. That's around 5 million workers in the industry, which accounts for hundreds of billions of dollars in compensation. Yet here we are, still waiting for an increase in financial support for arts programs in the schools. You can talk about Broadway, Hollywood, and TV culture all day, but young people are tomorrow's audiences and we owe it to the industry to develop an enlightened culture of young participants and consumers of the arts.

    Wichita's most unique theatre is located at 234 N. Mosely Street. Like the street's name, Mosley Street Melodrama is home to some of the best talent Wichita has to offer and presented in true melodramatic style. Now, if you have never been to a Mosley Street production, there are a few things you ought to know. Every time the heroine enters, you sigh. For the hero, you cheer. But if the villain is cunningly conniving, you boo and hiss. The first act is a melodramatic featured presentation while the second half is a musical revue. Filled with inside jokes only a true Wichitan would understand, Will Santa Drink Canada Dry? Or Go Tell it to the Mountie caps off the theatre company's year in true Christmas-comedic fashion.

To celebrate their forthcoming North American tour, which includes a performance at Coachella, KKB announce a new 7-inch. Featuring TIme 'n' Place highlight “Swimming” as the A-Side, the 7-inch features a brand new B-Side entitled “The Open Road,” which the band says “is a song about our North America tour last year, including anecdotes about the time a lorry nearly jackknifed into us in a blizzard '(We came to a halt in the snow / Swerving on the wet slush below / Just as well we did 'cos / That lorry in front of us / Was gonna tip over)' and getting robbed in San Francisco '(Way out on the north golden coast / Just as we were ready to go / Bandits broke into the van / And took all we had).'” Listen to the new song HERE, stream it on DSPs HERE, and pre-order the vinyl HERE.

In a city that is often associated with cynicism, you may soon feel a little fairy dust sprinkled over town. FINDING NEVERLAND is flying into the National Theatre in Washington DC this week, stoking our childlike wonder that can be easily lost in the daily grind. The musical, based on the Academy Award-winning film, spins a fantasy blending the real life of author J.M. Barrie and his most famous production, PETER PAN. Spenser Micetich stars as Mr. Cromer, a member of the Duke of York Theatre troupe acting in Barrie's latest play.

Stephen Sondheim's cerebral, minimalist COMPANY might not be an obvious choice for a community theater here in Indonesia where musicals are still often seen as jazz-hands and kicklines, but director Fonnyta Amran and JPAC (Jakarta Performing Arts Community) made it work. The production of COMPANY was as game-changing as its original Broadway counterpart back in the day.

Shakespeare may have been in love with Viola in this season's premiering romance/comedy Shakespeare in Love at the brand new installation for TheatreSquared, 477 W. Spring Street, in Downtown Fayetteville, but I was in love with this theatre the moment I stepped inside the venue. The look of the building, the eagerness from the staff, and the fun coming from my fellow patrons made Wednesday night's (Aug. 28) production immensely enjoyable. Running through September 15, this performance is a must see.

As I took my seat in the lobby of Stratford's Festival Theatre on Monday night, the eager patron next to me leaned in and proclaimed a?oeThere is quite the buzz in here!a?? She was absolutely right. We had both arrived early enough to grab seats for WHY WE TELL THE STORY: A CELEBRATION OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN MUSICAL THEATRE--A much anticipated cabaret event conceived by Festival actor Marcus Nance who can currently be seen in LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS and BILLY ELLIOT. After initially selling out months before the Festival season even began, the high demand of this show led to more chairs being added and eventually to 'standing room only' tickets being sold so that as many people as possible could witness what indeed turned out to be a magical night of words and song.

The script spins out a fast funny farce that reminds me of a politically informed Monty Python skit. Even though the premise sounds like a stuffy costume drama, this is more SOUTH PARK meets 1500s Spain.
