Craft Recordings is proud to announce the release of The Complete Cuban Jam Sessions 5-LP and 5-CD box sets on November 9, 2018. Compiled here in their entirety and original format for the first time, the five volumes of Panart's Cuban Jam Session albums were recorded over a span of almost a decade, from 1956-1964. Together these albums encapsulate a stylistic and historic panorama of Cuban music, from big band son montuno to Afro-Cuban rumba, mambo, cha-cha-chá and country acoustic guajira music. At the same time, they attest to Cuba's long relationship with popular American music and jazz.

Director Julie Kramer and choreographer Jessica Hartman have stayed true to the 1975 vision, but also managed to make it more energetic and faster paced. The dancers often seem to defy gravity and levitate during numbers, and it's all gorgeously staged and executed.

The new feature film 'Mosul,' written and directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan, is now in post-production in Los Angeles.  Shot in secret this past spring on location in Morocco, “Mosul,” explores the true story of an elite police unit made up almost entirely of native sons of Mosul who fought to liberate the city from six thousand ISIS militants. “Mosul” is based on an extraordinary feat of journalism by Luke Mogelson in The New Yorker in which he embedded with the unit for two months and documented the SWAT team's desperate fight, block by block, to destroy ISIS.  Joe and Anthony Russo's AGBO and Condé Nast Entertainment shot the film in Marrakech, Morocco and have been editing in Los Angeles at AGBO.  The film delivers scope, action and quality on par with the best of Hollywood.  Shot by Academy Award-winning cinematographer Mauro Fiore, “Mosul” is beautiful, epic and impossibly tense.

For the first time in seven years, Neil Young has reunited with his most beloved and enduring band Crazy Horse and are proud to announce their new album COLORADO today via Reprise Records. This is the first new music since 2012's critically acclaimed PSYCHEDELIC PILL and is arguably their most important and timely body of work to date. Young, along with Ralph Molina (drums, vocals), Billy Talbot (bass, vocals) and Nils Lofgren (guitars, vocals, pump organ), recorded 11 tracks mostly live in the studio in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. The end results are sonically stunning and as real as it gets; the listener will feel what it's like to be on the studio floor with the band during the actual recording. As for the songs themselves, this is pure Neil at his finest and as stylistically diverse as one might expect once The Horse is out of the barn. Some of the songs have already been performed live during Young's recent live shows and have already become fan favorites. From the classic, familiar feel of “She Showed Me Love,” to the gentle piano balladry of “Green Is Blue” with its lyrical images that recall disturbing images of extreme climate change. “Shut It Down,” the album's next radio track, rocks hard and offers a reset solution to our country's current state of affairs. “Milky Way,” originally shared with the world weeks ago will also strike a familiar chord. The anthemic and inspiring “Rainbow Of Colors” reminds us that “there's a rainbow of colors in the old USA, no one's gonna white wash those colors away.”

Oscar Wilde's 1895 satire, The Importance of Being Earnest, is arguably his most popular, and almost definitely his most widely performed, work. Director Barbara Hatch's director's note references the daunting nature of taking on the challenge of producing such a beloved and well known work; it is my opinion that, with few minor issues, Ms. Hatch and her cast more than did the piece justice.

Theory is an interesting show with a strong cast and solid technical elements. It raises some valid questions about living our ideals and the limitations we set (or don't) on ourselves and others in public, but it never quite figures out how to go beyond that. Still, it opens conversations about these issues, and pushes audiences to reconsider their own perspectives, and there's certainly value in that.

Truman Capote interviewed Marlon Brando in 1957.  The legendary actor was in Japan filming Sayonara.  Hilariously, we overhear one of the movie's sales pitches.  They are using 'real Japanese actors.'  This conversation is one level of the multi-media piece BrandoCapote.  On the flip side, this dance play is a commentary on men and toxic masculinity.

'I love the way Snow White is a strong female character in this version. She doesn't go away with the Prince in the end, and she doesn't feel she owes him anything just because he rescued her. She is written to be a self-aware and smart character,' says Ayanna Stover, who plays the princess in MSMT's Theatre for Young Audiences musical SNOW WHITE.

A powerful, emotionally-riveting, dynamically-staged original stage musical, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is a truly incredible, phenomenal show that I happily admit-in just a few years of its existence-has quickly become one of my favorite Broadway musicals of all time. Not only does it feature gorgeous, memorable songs from Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, it also has a simple but notably layered and impactful book by Steven Levenson that encourages deeper, meaningful discourse long after the end of the show. Even more remarkable is that the show presents a troubled but empathetic title character that demands so much from the extraordinary Ben Levi Ross-the actor tasked to bring him to life-that you are left in awe at his performance's sheer tenacity and brilliance. Thankfully, it has finally arrived at Orange County's Segerstrom Center for the Arts, where the Tony Award-winning musical's first national tour continues its much-too-brief two-week engagement through January 13, 2019 in Costa Mesa.

The onslaught of jukebox musicals doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon, which, in turn, means that there are an awful lot of cast albums that also double as very well-sung cover albums. That's definitely the case with the original cast recording of The Cher Show, which functions okay as a cast album but mostly rides on its cast's considerable talent and the sheer joy of Cher's catalog.
