BWW Review: HISTORY LIT Presents Three Immersive Plays at Perfectly Matched Locations Around the Pasadena Museum of HistoryBWW Review: HISTORY LIT Presents Three Immersive Plays at Perfectly Matched Locations Around the Pasadena Museum of History
by Shari Barrett - Jul 19, 2016

When you check in for HISTORY LIST, you will receive a color-coded program which indicates the group with whom and in what order you will walk around the site to witness the plays. The entire audience returns to a central meeting point in front of the historical Fenyes Mansion, led by time period costume-matched Tour Guides who go on to appear as characters within the play at the location where they have led you. Try to stay as close to these guides as you walk with them as their comical banter is not to be missed. I truly enjoy asking them questions as we walked, knowing their improvised answers will perfectly match the characters they are playing. (more...)

BWW Review: Cleveland Orchestra Plays All Beethoven Concert with Yefim BronfmanBWW Review: Cleveland Orchestra Plays All Beethoven Concert with Yefim Bronfman
by Roy Berko - Jan 11, 2016

A recent trip to New York included a tour of Carnegie Hall. As we entered the famous auditorium someone asked, 'How are the acoustics?' The seasoned tour guide answered, 'they are good, but not as good as Cleveland's Severance Hall.' He went on to say, 'Though this is a beautiful setting, it doesn't compare to Cleveland's Severance Hall. This was followed, about ten minutes later by the comment, 'The orchestras that play here are top-notch, especially the Cleveland Orchestra.' Following the tour I asked if he was a northern Ohio native. He responded that he wasn't, but came to Cleveland at least twice a year to hear the orchestra and always attended their performances in the Big Apple. (more...)
