Danny Barker: A New Orleans Life in Jazz - Jazz at Lincoln Center
May 31, 2019 - New York

He made us believe in the music," says Wynton Marsalis. Jazz raconteur Danny Barker was born in New Orleans in 1909, but he spent most of his career here in New York, playing with Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, and countless others. When he finally returned home as a local legend, he gave the world a gift that you will see on stage tonight. Barker had made it his mission to remind New Orleanians that jazz was their sacred birthright, and he founded a youth group that turned reluctant children into the jazz leaders we know today. An elite group of those musicians now reunites in The Appel Room for a soulful tribute to their mentor. Music director Dr. Michael White is a virtuoso on clarinet—an essential voice in New Orleans jazz. He'll be leading a band featuring master trombonist Lucien Barbarin, trumpet legend Gregg Stafford, drummer Shannon Powell (AKA the "King of Treme"), original Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra drummer Herlin Riley, and trumpeter Leroy Jones, who Wynton says "was the best of all of us." Guitarist and banjoist Don Vappie will play the role of "Mr. Barker," as the musicians still call him. The show also features pianist... (read more)

Hellgrammites - Marquis Theatre
May 31, 2019 - New York

Hellgrammites, Extreme Turbo Smash, Kenaima, Limbwrecker With more than fifteen years of experience playing together, the all-family Denver based band Hellgrammites have fine-tuned their art. Labeling Hellgrammites into a genre (let alone two or three) is extremely difficult, they have been called "genre gymnasts," and for good reason. They're influenced by a plethora of styles, which all poke their heads through the music tastefully. Hellgrammites casually and effortlessly dance between punk, hardcore, indie/progressive, jazz, alternative/rock, with tinges of hip-hop as well. They embody the ferocity of Every Time I Die, the rawness of The Chariot, and the groove-orientation of Glassjaw / Deftones.

C'etait la guerre draws upon two novelistic memoirs, Commander Azzedine's We Were Called Fellaghas (1974) and Jean-Claude Carrière's Peace of the Brave (1989), in confronting the Algerian War of Independence. "Burlesque, unreal, or bloody, the images that I kept of that time in Algeria are the strongest of my life," Jean-Claude Carrière would recall of his service in the French Air Force during the Algerian War. "When I proposed to Commander Azzedine, a mythical figure in the Algerian war of independence, to make a joint film about what our war was, he literally jumped for joy. Soon Ahmed Rachedi and Amazit Boukhalfa joined us, and on our side, Maurice Failevic, himself a former Algerian.

Oh, and it’s not just our opinion, the movie was showered with more awards then we can count. But, the story just keeps getting better. After her incredible movie, Tina Fey didn’t just stop there. She has far greater and extravagant plans for the Mean Girls Franchise. You'd like to know if Tina Fey can write a musical.

Frozen - Broadway Musical - St. James Theatre
Through June 05, 2019 - New York

The spectacular Disney film that captivated audiences around the world has finally made it to Broadway! Following the success of the 2013 animated movie, Frozen the Musical expands on the story of two sisters, giving more time to the characters we’ve come to love. With a book by Jennifer Lee, and music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the show has kept many members of the creative team from the film, ensuring everything on stage is faithful to the original story. Instead of being a direct copy of the film, what Frozen the Musical does is transform these animated characters into something real and tangible. It really takes the time to dig deep into the characters’ motivations, allowing their relationships to develop further. Delving deeper into Elsa and Anna’s past, the extra time given to the young sisters makes their love for each other clear from the start. Young Elsa, portrayed by Brooklyn Nelson and Ayla Schwartz, is the perfect tragic heroine. Her reaction to hurting her sister, and her fear of hurting anyone else, tugs at the heartstrings of every audience member. Both actors convey the role of big sister brilliantly, tapping into the respons... (read more)
