BWW Review: Broadway's Resilient Moms Gather At Feinstein's/54 Below To Send Love And Light to Ruthie Ann MilesBWW Review: Broadway's Resilient Moms Gather At Feinstein's/54 Below To Send Love And Light to Ruthie Ann Miles
by Troy Frisby - April 2, 2018

Of the many great parts of the Broadway community and the performing arts community at large, perhaps the greatest is its ability to come together and provide support for one another. BROADWAY BABY MAMAS, held at Feinstein's/54 Below on March 15 little more than a week after the unthinkable tragedy involving Ruthie Ann Miles, was an incredible example of just how deep that support runs.

BWW Review: Tilda Swinton Moves Into The Laurie Beechman In The Absurd and Exquisite TILDA SWINTON ANSWERS AN AD ON CRAIGSLISTBWW Review: Tilda Swinton Moves Into The Laurie Beechman In The Absurd and Exquisite TILDA SWINTON ANSWERS AN AD ON CRAIGSLIST
by Audrey Moyce - April 2, 2018

Byron Lane's meditation on the artifice and projection of fame and celebrity is brilliantly explored through the prism of Tom Lenk's exquisitely crafted performance in TILDA SWINTON ANSWERS AN AD ON CRAIGSLIST, which ran March 16-25 at the Laurie Beechman Theatre. CRAIGSLIST's Tilda is almost better than the real thing, because she is utterly raw in being herself, and Lenk was a treat to behold for all of the show's 80-odd minutes; his performance and Lane's writing were equally superb.

by Melanie Votaw - March 25, 2018

For nearly 35 years, I have loved the score of BABY, the Broadway musical that ran for 241 performances from 1983 to 1984 and made Liz Callaway a star. So, it was thrilling to hear the music sung in concert by a stellar cast at Feinstein's/54 Below on March 18, the proceeds of which went to Planned Parenthood. (more...)

by Troy Frisby - February 20, 2018

Already this year, Justin Sayre is working on a new book, a musical album produced by Julian Fleisher, and 'an episodic comedy-horror soap opera' called RAVENSWOOD MANOR, set to be performed like 'a live TV show,' among numerous other projects. But first, the ever-busy performer will return to Joe's Pub with a new series called JUSTIN SAYRE'S GAY-B-C'S: A BRIEF HISTORY OF GAY CULTURE IN 5 PARTS. (more...)

by Karis Rogerson - February 6, 2018

Vivian Reed is a performer, through and through, a fact clear from the moment her feet hit the stage (and even before that if she has to saunter through the room first to get there). Even over the phone, her voice brims with confidence and joy as she talks about her current series at Feinstein's/54 Below called VIVIAN REED SINGS LENA HORNE, a tribute she began in honor of Horne's centennial birthday last June.

by Karis Rogerson - January 30, 2018

Life on the road can be grueling, especially if you're a performer belting "Defying Gravity" several times a week for over a year, as actor/singer Jessica Vosk did from September 2016 to 2017.

BWW Review: Sandra Bernhard Ushers in a New Dawn with SANDEMONIUM at Joe's PubBWW Review: Sandra Bernhard Ushers in a New Dawn with SANDEMONIUM at Joe's Pub
by Troy Frisby - January 16, 2018

'We're gonna keep it up upbeat. Right, kids?' Finding light in the darkness was a dominant, if not the dominant, theme in 2017, so in closing out the year with SANDEMONIUM, it tracks that Sandra Bernhard would work it into her New Year's show---in her own distinctly Sandyland way, as her patented snark is a feature, not a flaw---and the crowd during her December 29 performance at Joe's Pub seemed just fine with that.

by Troy Frisby - January 12, 2018

In SNOWFALL at Birdland, Christine Ebersole and Billy Stritch offered up a holiday show that was equal parts holly-jolly and melancholy. Through it all, though, there was an undercurrent of warm insularity, each bolstered by the other's presence, even when one would sit a number out and simply watch their friend perform. (more...)

BWW Feature: MAC's Best Female Vocalists Create Camaraderie From Competition With TOGETHERBWW Feature: MAC's Best Female Vocalists Create Camaraderie From Competition With TOGETHER
by Ashley Steves - December 15, 2017

This past March, at 2017's MAC Awards, honoring the best of cabaret in New York over the past season, as in most years, there were five nominees for Female Vocalist: Celia Berk, Sally Darling, Meg Flather, Josephine Sanges, and Lisa Viggiano. It's not particularly important, in this case, who won. (Flather did.) If their shared story met the usual expectations, it would've ended there and each nominee would've gone on her own way to do her next big thing. You'll be happy to hear their story defies those expectations. (more...)
