Review: 'West Side Story' at Barrington Stage:...

Barrington Stage has gone all out with this production. It has a cast of 27, and when they're all dancing, filling the stage with energy, grace and simply perfect body lines, I realized that even the latest Broadway revival in 2009 wasn't in the same league. The depth of talent is staggering. click for more

Singing! Dancing! Naked Singing and Dancing!

It might require a drive, but you can hear country/western music, Bernstein and great stuff for children in the coming days ... or catch up with nudity that began 50 years ago and caused a sensation on Broadway.

Bernstein, Bang on a Can, and Everything In...

Yes, I'm stretching the word by calling the upcoming shows "pop." But they are popular in the best sense of the word —they appeal to everyone. For me, great music knows no boundaries.

Review: 'Hair' is a Must See

This production of "Hair" is far more than good. It is astonishing! The unbelievable energy of the 15-member cast not only brings that troubling and exciting time of our history to life on the stage, it reawakens our spirits and our souls. We want to get on the stage to dance and protest with them.
