Re: “Trio of Justice, Empty Sound

Not to mention (I guess cause they are local?) free jazz collective The Empty Sound whose recent album
" is Zen like, recalling the more atmospheric and challenging west coast jazz from the 1950's (Chico Hamilton, Jimmy Giuffre), combined with modern free improvisational sensibilities. The playing is breezy, deceptively effortless, nuanced and fun..." Stefan Wood

Re: “Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion

54 West is a fantastic music venue. There is something for everyone. You can sit , watch and listen to some of the most phenomenal local and touring bands. If having music in the background is more your speed, the back has pool tables and games. There is also a lounge to sit and get away while still listening. My favorite part however is the backyard. There are lights draped between trees. A hammock to cuddle close to your loved one while looking at the stars, horseshoes, a fire barrel and a cute country back stage for special performances looking over a dance floor! The best part, however, has to be the staff. They will go above and beyond to make your night special. I guarantee if you walk in a stranger, by the end of the night you will walk out a friend. The owner Bill West has gone to great lengths to give the community something it never has before. He has put blood, sweat and tears into 54 West. The least you can do is go for a ride and check it out! What do you have to loose? NOTHING!!! 54 West the CHEERS of Alamance County!!

Re: “Ghost Brothers Of Darkland County

I saw the premiere of this musical last fall at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. The score is by John Mellencamp & the book by Stephen King. Some of the songs & scenes still haunt me... in a very good way! Bruce Greenwood played the lead at the time & who knew he had such an awesome singing voice? Highly recommended!

Re: “Willie Watson, Liz Longley

I have been following the Old Crow Medecine Show for about 10 years, Some say I am not their fan but their stalker. It broke my heart when I heard Willie left the group, he was always my favorite of the group and added so much to their sound which Ketch wisely did not try to replace. Now that Willie is doing is own work and playing with the DRM it's only increased my admiration for him. This is one act you have got to see and you will understand my admiration for him and his career. I can only wish him the best and hope he plays aound the Carolina"s often so I may continue my "stalking" See you at the show tonight or at Mama's Dipps sometimes. Don't let the weather cause you to miss this event Ken

Re: “The Landing

Sometimes classical music fans enjoy a symphony concert, and at other times a chamber music concert of Beethoven’s “late quartets”. Sometimes it is great to see a large-scale musical on Broadway or on tour at DPAC, but is also delightful to see a work such as The Landing, a set of three small jewels now at the Deep Dish Theater. For this work, John Kander, who wrote the music for Cabaret and Chicago, has now brought us a chamber musical. At the Deep Dish we see four musicians accompanying four actors playing different roles in three short works. Instead of bringing us another big musical, 86-year-old John Kander has brought us his own late quartets.

Last year Kander teamed up with 35-year-old playwright Greg Pierce to bring us The Landing in New York. This fall, Paul Frellick of Deep Dish Theater is staging The Landing for its second time. Paul Frellick’s direction is spare, clean, and not self-indulgent. What adds to the stories’ poignancy is the use of the unamplified instruments and voices.

One of the themes of the three stories is that of loneliness and the longing -- and need -- for companionship of different kinds. You will also find common themes among the three stories made clear in the third play, but that each has its own unique twist.

The acting is all top-level. In the second, Mark Ridenour gives an extraordinary performance. Yet he still gives actress Erin Tito enough room to perform amazingly in what is the lead role. With disciplined acting, the second story is a well-crafted example of the theater of the absurd. Equal to the first two actors – and giving us an acting clinic of his own -- is John Allore in a series of small cameos (some of which are stunning) and well as principal roles. The three actors work well-together with marvelous performances by thirteen-year-old Neil Bullard. Under Frellick’s direction, the ensemble plays well together in all three chamber musicals.

In the future, playwright Greg Pierce could certainly write larger-scale plays or musical dramas. But many of us would also be delighted if he and Kander kept working on their own, small-scale works until Kander is 96.

Don’t miss “The Landing” at the Deep Dish Theater. Its three chamber musicals are jewels.
