Multi-award winning Foothill Music Theatre presentsÂ Bullets Over Broadway The Musical,Â the Tony Award-nominated musical based on Woody Allen and Douglas McGrath's screenplay for the hit filmÂ Bullets over Broadway. A love letter to the golden age of Broadway,Â Bullets Over Broadway The MusicalÂ brings the classic musical comedy back with a bang.

BWW Review: SAVION GLOVER & GREGORY PORTER - SOPHISTICATED RHYTHMS N' JAZZY BLUES NAT KING COLE STYLE at The Hollywood Bowl
by Valerie-Jean Miller - Aug 21, 2018
He's out there on stage, on a raised dance platform at The Hollywood Bowl, center, downstage, in a simple T-shirt and pants, into himself, making sounds like a woodpecker, a train; a horse trotting,... maybe there are fireworks going off? Maybe gunshots, or a rapid -fire AK-47, even. The sounds are all coming from the bottom of his feet! He is like lightning with tap shoes on. Like bursts of electrical currents that make all kinds of sounds. Snap, crackle, pop, step-step, shuffle, ball-change, flap, flap, then into a tirade of tap accents too fast to count out or give a name to. GREGORY PORTER: NAT KING COLE & ME If you like classy jazz and blues, lovingly remember Nat King Cole and his style, and hearing a beautiful live orchestra playing, Gregory Porter is your man. Vince Mendoza conducts the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra with finesse and aplomb, and Gregory sings one glorious tune after another, starting out with 'Mona Lisa.' It's a sit back, relax and just enjoy it all, rest of the evening. He has a deep, rich voice, sounding very much like the great Nat King Cole and the pipes to sustain those ending notes with ease.
