The Village! A Disco Daydream at Dixon Place

Tonight’s Disco Daydream was an immersive fun-fete celebrating the universal quest for elusive love and where it might be found. The cast touched hearts and drew inspiration from an empathetic audience that sighed at hints of romance, camaraderie, and reminiscences of disco’s glory days. The music never stopped in this story of love and tragedy as it unfolded through incredible dance routines, driving music, humor, charm, and physicality.

Cheek to Cheek: Irving Berlin in Hollywood

The men were dapper, the ladies elegant, they were all beautiful, and together drew viewers into the time best befitting each Irving Berlin song’s historical context. We heard charming anecdotes while reveling in the choreography, lighting, sound, costumes, dancing, singing, and the orchestra — it was all as it should be in a joyous evening of smiling and nostalgia with wonderful music, singing, and dancing.

Isaac Mizrahi at 54 Below

Misrahi is a boyish, lovable character who is bawdy, irreverent, clever, and entertaining with repartee and humor as delightful as his singing. His selection of songs seems to spring from biographical sentiment, and while he can sing to be funny, he can also touch hearts with the intense pathos, sadness, and beauty he expresses in songs like Sondheim’s “One More Kiss” from Follies. The song ended with a whisper, silence, and thunderous applause.

Radioactive

Reynolds and Price are passionate creators and intellectuals of their art. Their work is an alchemy of surpassingly inventive and sympathetic creative minds. They prove that great prose creates great music just as each informs and enhances the other. They are direct descendants of the great songwriting teams who came before them like Kern and Hammerstein, the Gershwins, Rodgers and Hart, and Lerner and Loewe. Their music is fresh, emotional, rich in character, sophisticated, and affects listeners in a memorable and important way.
