Grammy award winning DJ and record producer Peter Rauhofer has died. He was 48 years old.
GaySocialites.com reported in April that Rauhofer had been diagnosed with a brain tumor after he was hospitalized following a seizure.
His manager, Angelo Russo, announced Peter’s death on Rauhofer’s Facebook fan page with this message:
Justin Bieber was attacked on stage while performing in Dubai, but the 19-year-old singer kept going after security removed the man who rushed the stage.
Bieber’s people even say the man who ran on stage during the show was a fan and meant no harm to Justin.
Here’s the video:
Mark Nadler is one of the greatest showmen of our time, capable of leaping from floor to piano bench, tap-dancing madly, singing and keeping steady eye contact with the audience, all this while playing a complex passage on the piano without even glancing at the keys. However, in his latest, I’m A Stranger Here Myself, he takes a somewhat more low-key approach – the abundant theatrics and virtuosity are still there, but applied in a different way. Stranger was originally a cabaret show, but Mark has worked with director David Schweizer to craft it into an even more thoughtful multimedia theatre piece.
If you you know Fiona Shaw only from her film work, then you don’t know Fiona Shaw. Her overpoweringly impressive solo performance in The Testament of Mary is – I’ll just say it – searingly brilliant. I’ve quipped to people who enthuse about “searing” performances that I’d rather theatre not burn me. However, if it’s done as expertly as Shaw does it, I truly have no complaints.
Thank goodness I know this play very intimately – I played Macbeth’s nemesis MacDuff in college – otherwise I might not have been able to follow this artful but somewhat opaque adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy.
