Cabaret Review: Marilyn Maye

Marilyn Maye 2013

“The Marvelous Marilyn Maye” – it’s a phase that me and my husband have come to say with relish, and we get excited every time we get to see her. Ella Fitzgerald once called Maye “the greatest white female singer in the world”, and I can tell you that’s no exaggeration. There are younger singers who have more powerful voices, but I can think of no other singer who possesses Maye’s combination of interpretive ability, rhythmic verve and vocal range, still the envy of singers many years her junior.

Theatre Review: “Jackie”

Jackie

Jackie – a theatrical dissection of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and the myths surrounding her – is without a doubt the best high art solo performance piece I’ve ever seen or read. And, because of love affairs with high art and solo performance, I’ve seen and read more of those than you might think.

Jonathan Warman to direct two “Ridiculous” masterpieces in March

Press Art

March 2013 is going to be one “ridiculous” month for director Jonathan Warman. Ridiculous Theatre that is! First off Warman is to be reunited with the incomparable Everett Quinton, who will be playing the title role in a staged reading of Medea by Charles Ludlam that Warman is directing for the amazing Phoenix Theatre Ensemble, on Monday, March 18 at 8 pm. Everett (alternating with Black-Eyed Susan) created the role when he took over leadership of the Ridiculous Theatrical Company after Ludlam’s passing in 1987. Tickets available here.

Then Warman is going to fully stage – for one night only –  Kitchenette by Ronald Tavel, one of the first “ridiculous theater” plays ever! Adapted from Tavel’s scenario for the Andy Warhol film “Kitchen”, Kitchenette hilariously spoofs the making of an avant-garde movie. Tickets available here.

Joe Biden starts his bid for President

Joe Biden is running for President

Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t seem to be trying too hard to keep his intentions of running for President in 2016 a secret, but it won’t be an easy run especially since he’s starting his bid four years too early and his own flaws aren’t even his biggest obstacle.
