As with most performing arts organizations in the time of COVID, the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony (PACS) is confronted with the challenge of building audiences when live in-person concerts are not possible. Many have attempted to fill this void with video content, whether recorded or streamed —  yet there is a clear need for a more innovative solution, one that catches some of the sense of, and inspires people's eventual return to, the real thing.

Austin Winberg's musical First Date was first seen on Broadway in 2013. It's a classic American story of two mis-matched singletons in New York - Aaron and Casey - who end up on a blind date, and all the complications that come with that. Featuring a contemporary rock score by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, First Date the Musical ran for five months on Broadway and hasn't been seen on these shores in a professional capacity until now.

DOG STUFF presents a touching, hilarious, and brief evening of otherworldly theatre for one night at Charm City Books. A Capital Fringe 'Best of the Fringe' pick, One in Four is a play about four roommates: each one is an alien, and each one believes the other three to be regular degular humans. As the play unfolds, the four contort themselves into increasingly fraught emotional and physical positions to prevent being unmasked as extraterrestrial -- and they learn very little about themselves in the process.

Sometimes it IS enough just to be entertained, ya know? I don't care how socio-politically engaged you are, I think everyone needs at least an occasional break from all the angst and mishegas out there, and that's exactly what Foothill Music Theatre provides with its antic musical comedy 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood.' With book, music and lyrics by Rupert Holmes (yes, he of 'The Pina Colada Song' infamy. Apologies for implanting that deathless ear worm in your head for the rest of the day!), 'Drood' is truly sui generis. Based on an unfinished Charles Dickens novel of the same name, the show reimagines it as performed by a veteran troupe of British Music Hall performers circa 1895. When they reach the point in the story where Dickens left off, the audience is asked to vote on how it ends - who the murderer and secret detective are and - since this is a musical comedy a?' the pair they'd most like to see end up as lovers. The cast then plays out the concluding scenes and songs accordingly. Apparently, there are close to a mind-bogglingly thousand possible combinations, which just adds to the fun and unpredictability of the whole endeavor.

For many years, the character of Don Giovanni was celebrated as “Mozart's bad boy”—an evil but charming anti-hero of opera. But for Stage Director Brenna Corner and Maestro Lidiya Yankovskaya—the duo behind Seattle Opera's streaming Don Giovanni—there's so much more to this masterpiece than toxic masculinity.

It's hard to believe, but the ever-youthful, trailblazing actor/writer/comedian Marga Gomez is now well into the fourth decade of her remarkable career. Known for her funny and touching solo theater pieces as well as her uproarious standup comedy, Gomez recently revived her hit play Not Getting Any Younger for the MarshStream International Solo Fest where it won the award for Best Solo Show. In the play, Gomez weaves commentary through hilarious surreal life vignettes like little Marga visiting the worst amusement park ever with her showgirl mom in tow, and adult Marga trying to get a senior discount at Forever 21. In a swift 55 minutes, Gomez looks back on how even an outspoken lesbian can find herself in the closet for women of a certain age. Luckily for viewers everywhere, Gomez is now reprising the show for two more livestreamed performances on December 5th and 6th. Additional details can be found on the MarshStream website. BroadwayWorld recently chatted by phone with Gomez from her home in the Glen Park neighborhood of San Francisco. Our conversation delved into how she adapted Not Getting Any Younger for virtual performance, her experience as one of the first successful, out lesbian comedians, and her colorful family history in the Latino variety show world. Offstage, she is much as you would expect - naturally warm, funny and down-to-earth - but also surprisingly nerdy about the careful technique that goes into making a successful virtual performance.

When creating a musical, there are many places that one can draw inspiration from. Some, like Lin-Manuel Miranda, read a book and are determined to see the story play out on stage. Others take the songs of others and create a plot around them, like the music of ABBA in Mamma Mia. A few are even able to conjure up entire worlds out of their minds. But one of the more popular forms of media to be adapted in the past few years has been the world of cinema.
