All in Concert

REVIEW: Witness the "Black Light"

“Black Light”, an incandescent evening of song and story, stars performance artist Daniel Alexander Jones as his alter-ego, the enigmatic cabaret creation Jomama Jones; rich in meaning and message, its politics pointed but poetic, “Black Light” is a wickedly funny, painfully revelatory, and poignantly beautiful exploration of race, identity, gender, power, history, change, and community that is perfectly calibrated for these turbulent times.  Catch this show if you can.

REVIEW: Encores! “Hey, Look Me Over!”

Two songs from "Mack & Mabel" steal the show at Encores! 25th anniversary concert “Hey, Look Me Over!”—an original concert pulling overtures, songs, and scenes from nine different, lesser-known musicals—overshadowing middling material from the other eight musicals celebrated. A fun experiment after 25 years, hopefully Encores! sticks to full concerts of single shows at a time in the future. 

REVIEW: Catch “Brigadoon” before it disappears!

A sold-out “gala presentation” of the hauntingly glorious 1947 Lerner and Lowe musical “Brigadoon” plays New York City Center through Sunday—starring a stunning cast including Kelli O'Hara, Patrick Wilson, Stephanie J. Block, Aasif Mandvi, and Robert Fairchild—and you will want to catch it (if you can) before, like the mythical town of Brigadoon, it disappears for 100 years!
