At its heart, MELISSA ERRICO SINGS HER NEW YORK is not a show about New York, or songs about New York, although both of those things are prominently featured. Rather it is about one woman's lifelong experience of New York City, with all of the dreams, obsessions, joys, heartbreaks, terror, and rapture that come with living, working, and loving in the world's most exciting and most irritating city. It is about a woman who made the short journey from Long Island with nothing but some dance shoes, a voice, and a dream and acquired a home, friends, a career, a husband, and a family, along with a journal full of memories and experiences. In short, a life.

Después de la reciente noticia del fallecimiento del compositor Stephen Sondheim este última semana, hoy en ART ON STAGE llega este homenaje al autor. Este es un espacio creado por Zebra (@pantalonesdezebra) para recordar la importancia de ciertas producciones gracias al dibujo. Este Broadway Baby se enamoró del género gracias a su mentor Oscar Hammerstein II, que a su vez había revolucionado el musical en la época dorada de Broadway con SHOW BOAT primero y luego con OKLAHOMA! Con esta influencia y con este amor por el detalle Sondheim dio un vuelco a lo que se había hecho hasta entonces infundiendo sentido a cada palabra de sus obras, haciendo que sus personajes tuviesen tanta complejidad y tanta vida sobre el escenario que el público se sentiría identificado con sus problemas y tribulaciones.

Although Anita Gillette & Penny Fuller have been in show business for a very long time, their close friendship is not even a decade old yet. Fans frequently mistake them for each other. This is the premise of their show SIN TWISTERS which will open at 54 Below Monday, August 16. The title, of course, is a Spoonerism.  Fuller and Gillette explain that, and the mystery of their mistaken identities in the show. They also sing lots of fantastic numbers from the many stages of their careers. I recently caught up with Anita and Penny on Zoom. It was a chatty, delightful afternoon.
