Vaudevillians420w_WilsonModels

This decisively proves that Jinkx Monsoon is far more than just the latest winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The artist otherwise know as Jerrick Hoffer is, at the very least, one of the most talented and successfully ambitious drag artists of his generation. At most, his work in The Vaudevillians shows that he has the potential to develop into a drag performance artist worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as Taylor Mac, John Kelly and Justin Vivian Bond.

CD Review: “Pippin” (New Broadway Cast Recording)

CD Pippin

Pippin is definitely an important show – it was the first American musical to successfully combine pop-rock with traditional musical comedy structure. And composer Stephen Schwartz’s score is exceptionally tuneful and memorable, which is well represented in this recording of the latest Broadway revival. The real news here is Andrea Martin as Pippin’s grandmother – I have never seen somebody truly stop the show with thunderous applause the way she does with her big number “No Time At All”. While the recorded version doesn’t have the visual kick of her performance, it does have a vast choir of fans including the likes of Michael Musto singing along with her, on top of a beautifully arranged chorus from the show’s cast – it casts a different, but still exciting, spell of its own.
