Eerie charm in store in world premiere of "Beatsville"

“Beatsville” is a hip new musical making its world premiere at the Asolo Repertory Theatre. The Asolo tends to explore new musicals in late spring; and I applaud the theater’s efforts to support something so crucial to musical lovers like me – new productions. The theater world places a heavy emphasis on revivals such as the first production of the Asolo season, perhaps the most perfect Broadway musical, “Guys and Dolls," which are as they say, "s'wonderful," it is also critical to expand the…See More

"Girl Groups: The ‘60s Explosion” at the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe is one of the company’s best performances!

“Girl Groups: The ‘60s Explosion” at the Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe was my favorite show of the season and one of the company’s best performances. This show has everything Sarasota audiences love about WBTT.

Gomes turns in a performance for the record books in Sarasota Ballet's Tribute to Ashton

It helps to have friends in high places; and Iain Webb and Margaret Barbieri have ably used their considerable ballet pedigrees to great effect in the Sarasota Ballet decade of Webb. The company scored another major coup this past weekend as the first United States company to perform “Scenes de Ballet” by choreographer Sir Frederick Ashton and was joined by the larger than life ballet star Marcelo Gomes, principal of the American Ballet Theatre. The “Tribute to Ashton” event was everything I…See More

"Born Yesterday" at Asolo Rep is an entertaining clarion call for civic education

Theater is a place of refuge; and Asolo Repertory Theatre’s Artistic Director Michael Donald Edward’s decision to develop a Washington Trilogy in the early weeks of a new administration is nothing short of brilliant. “The Great Society” was a cautionary tale; “The Originalist” was a peace offering extolling the search for common political ground; and “Born Yesterday” is a clarion call to energize citizens to reassert the founding principals of democracy. Don’t get me wrong, there is a heavy…See More

Ed Gero as Scalia wins hearts and minds in "The Originalist"

In these heady times where the Constitution is on everyone’s minds and lips, it was an unexpected pleasure to watch “The Originalist,” a play about famed and recently deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, which premiered at Asolo Repertory Theatre on inauguration day. Scalia’s death last year has thrown the Supreme Court into the forefront of political discourse. “The Originalist,” written by John Strand, premiered in Washington, D.C. while he was still alive. Edward Gero, who…See More

Ashton, Graziano, and Tuckett is a bonafied hit!

Nearly every time I see the Sarasota Ballet these days, I think to myself, they have reached an entirely different level and they have outdone themselves! In fact, this weekend’s performance of the powerful line up of choreographers Ashton, Graziano, and Tuckett was transcendent; and there are three remaining shows (tonight, tomorrow afternoon, and tomorrow night). I was eagerly anticipating “Changing Light” by Will Tuckett, which I first saw in 2013, my favorite piece ever performed by the…See More
