And who better to guide an audience through the minefield of snip-tuck Do's and Don'ts than Gate69's three gorgeous goddesses, the infamous Trolley Dollies who are apparently well acquainted with every anti-ageing cream known to man! Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, selfies, blogs and vlogs - social media scrutiny is at an optimum and with the advent of the instant filter, everyone looks beautiful and unblemished, and fake is the new fact.

The Cleveland Orchestra And George Szell Complete Recordings For Columbia Masterworks CD Collection
by BWW News Desk - Jul 18, 2018

“In the heyday of George Szell's tenure as its chief conductor,” declared Gramophone, “The Cleveland Orchestra had few if any peers among the world's great orchestras.” Coinciding with the orchestra's Centennial birthday in December 2018, Sony Classical is excited to announce one of the most ambitious reissue projects of recent times, a comprehensive collection of the Clevelanders' recordings made under the baton of their iconic fourth music director. These span the period between 1947 – a year after Szell inherited a rising national ensemble from Erich Leinsdorf and began transforming it into the elite ensemble it remains to this day – and 1969, a year before his sudden death shocked the musical world. Born in Budapest in 1897, Szell's dream was to create an ensemble that combined “the Americans' purity and beauty of sound and their virtuosity of execution with the European sense of tradition, warmth of expression and sense of style,” in the words of his biographer Michael Charry. That he fulfilled that dream is amply documented in the huge discography that fills Sony's new edition of 106 CDs, “recordings that are prized for their stylistic rightness, clarity of structure, rhythmic tension, and transparency of texture” (The New Yorker).

by Kelly Rogers Flynt - Jul 15, 2018

Sweet Land at Taproot Theatre is a sweet treat of a show. Full of humor, wit, challenges, and struggles, the story of Inge Altenberg and Olaf Torvik becomes an everyman's story. The path to the American dream is paved with suspicion and hardship for immigrants both past and present. Their trials and travails parallel the stories of so many others. In the end, we find that their differences are much smaller than our commonalities. Communities can unite or divide. It is up to each person to decide where and with whom they will stand. (more...)
