I still remember where I was when I got the text. I bet you do, too. You know the one, that text from your child who is completely and utterly devastated not to have gotten a coveted part.

Ho avuto il piacere di assistere a più di una presentazione del libro La Storia Della Discomusic, edito dalla Hoepli e scritto da Andrea Angeli Bufalini e Giovanni Savastano. Ogni volta sentendo parlare delle mitiche canzoni e degli artisti che hanno fatto la storia di questo intramontabile genere, mi sono ritrovato a pensare a Broadway e ai musical che, soprattutto negli ultimi anni hanno ripetutamente pescato nel repertorio di quel magico periodo musicale.

Living in one of the most expensive cities in the United States as a stereotypically broke college student sounds like a financial disaster on paper. Especially when you're like me and have zero economic impulse control. As the internet youths would say, '[My money] is here for a good time. Not a long time.' And living just steps from some of the most iconic Broadway theatres and productions doesn't help my case much either.

Thanksgiving break is over and just like that it's finals season! The break before finals is always like a taste of winter break. You don't realize how much you needed the rest until it's snatched away from you until Christmas. I didn't necessarily come back from break rested and recharged, but I did come back ready to work. The day I came back was the first time I had visited all of the campus buildings in one day!

Handel's AMINTA E FILLIDE doesn't have much of a libretto--'nymph meets swain and complications arise,' says the program, and that's about it--and there were just a handful of musicians from Juilliard's early music program on stage at the Morgan Library's tiny Gilder Lehrman Hall. for a work that lasted less than an hour. Yet Handel's opera/pastoral/cantata goes on my list as one of the most gorgeous performances of the year in New York, under guest artist-in-residence, William Christie.

Using several of your favorite hits from the 1970s, cleverly strewn together, Disaster: the Musical is an homage to the wonderfully, awful disaster movies of the decade. What begins as a celebratory night at the grand opening of a floating casino and discotheque, quickly turns to...well...disaster as the passengers dodge earthquake, inferno, tidal wave, shark attack, diabetes, out of tune guitars, piranhas and more! Though the title may suggest it, The Pollard Theatre's production is far from a disaster.
