BWW Review: HARRY POTTER IN CONCERT Brings Magic to Audiences at JPAS
by Heidi Scheuermann - Sep 7, 2017

This past weekend, Jefferson Performing Arts Society (JPAS) in partnership with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra (LPO), created the most magical and beautiful synergy of cinema and music that I have ever experienced.  I'm not even exaggerating!  I think I can speak for the rest of the audience as well when I say this the very best way (not only way, because it doesn't happen often enough) to experience the world that author J.K. Rowling created.  While Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone played on the big screen, the LPO was dressed in black with their instruments held high as they played the ENTIRE score from the very first twinkle to the end credits.   (more...)

BWW Review: NEW YORK CITY BALLET'S "Swan Lake" Features World Class Dancing but Lackluster Décor and Costumes
by Sondra Forsyth - Sep 22, 2017

In my 2015 review of the Peter Martins version of Swan Lake for the New York City Ballet, I focused on my dismay about the d cor and costumes by Per Kirkeby that strip this classic of its time and place. Yet because I was prepared for that disappointment this time around, I was able to find more to like about the production on the evening of September 20th 2017 when I attended at the Koch Theater in Lincoln Center.
