Molière in the Park: TARTUFFE

Molière in the Park: TARTUFFE

I love the writings of Molière, especially his TARTUFFE. And I adore live theatre and have so missed it during this unusual few months when we haven’t been able to enjoy it. But as I feel about the infrequent, and certainly uncomfortable times I tried to watch some of Steven Cobert’s The Late Show from his home or a ‘live; concert given by performers beaming in from some personal location far from an audience, I can’t get behind any streaming/Zoomed/at-home-streaming-replacement of our ‘new normal.

George Orwell’s, Animal Farm, The Seeing Place @ the Paradise Factory

George Orwell’s, Animal Farm, The Seeing Place @ the Paradise Factory

Taking on the infamous Animal Farm, as The Seeing Place Theatre manages in this 2-hour plus, slog through one of the most famous literary allegories of all time, is surely a Herculean effort. Brandon Walker, who adapted the text, and co-directs; Erin Cronican (co-director as well as Executive Artistic Director of The Seeing Place); Laura Clare Browne, and William Ketter cavort, crawl, bray and buck through 28 different roles between them, in the small, yet well-appointed basement space of their East Village home.

Oral History With Chita Rivera @ Bruno Walter Auditorium at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts  5/7/2018

I got lucky enough to attend an Oral History event with legendary Broadway icon, Chita Rivera presented by The League of Professional Theatre Women at the Bruno Walter Auditorium at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Monday night. These oral histories are an ongoing program from the League of Professional Theatre Women, in partnership with the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, chronicling the contributions of significant theatre women in all fields. For this night Ms. Rivera answered Richard Ridge’s insightful questions for an hour and smiled, made jokes, lead with her honesty that just made you love the lady even more then how much we all love her already.
