 A Grand Night for Singing
 
A Rodgers and Hammerstein Musical Revue

City: Nutley

Additional Notes:
Taste and imagination, the two key ingredients for a first-rate revue, abound in this fresh take on the Rodgers & Hammerstein canon conceived by Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie. Over three decades after the duo's final collaboration, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, took the Great White Way by storm, it was in fact this new R&H musical that opened the 1994 Broadway season with flair and distinction, garnering wildly enthusiastic notices as well as earning two Tony nominations, including Best Musical. Here at R&H, our founding fathers probably never imagined 'Shall We Dance?' as a comic pas de deux for a towering beauty and her diminutive admirer, nor did they suspect that one day a lovelorn young lad might pose the musical question, 'How do you solve a problem like Maria?' But that's precisely the kind of invention lavished upon this new revue, with innovative musical arrangements including a sultry Andrews Sisters-esque 'I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-a My Hair,' a swingin' 'Honeybun' worthy of the Modernaires, and a jazzy 'Kansas City' which leaves no question about how terrifically up to date the remarkable songs of R&H remain.

Additional Notes:
“THE BEST JAZZ SHOW IN TOWN” is back by popular demand at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center!

The Django Festival All-Stars carry on the legacy of the great great ‘gypsy guitarist DJANGO REINHARDT – HOT JAZZ at its best!

Its star, DORADO SCHMITT, from the Lorraine region of France, is a gypsy legend in the true style of DJANGO. Joining DORADO is LUDOVIC BEIER from France – who was written about by Downbeat, after his appearance at The Newport Jazz Festival, “BEIER played as great a solo on his accordina as Toots Thielemans at his zenith.” PIERRE BLANCHARD on Violin is a sensation. On rhythm, gypsy great FRANCKO MEHRSTEIN, and XAVIER NIKI – all from France. And, joining the band on this major tour is DORADOS young son, AMATI SCHMITT, now 20, a virtuoso and rising star!

The band grew out of the very successful DJANGO REINHARDT FESTIVAL, going into its 16th successful year in America, with its home at Birdland and major tours across the country – and has been hailed by LEONARDO DICAPRIO as being made up of some of the greatest musicians in the world!

HOT JAZZ harkens back to the 30s and 40s in Europe, where DJANGO teamed with top Jazz Violinist, STEPHANE GRAPPELLI, to create The HOT CLUB QUINTETTE of France…the greatest musical partnership in European history Jazz history. The ALL-STARS follow in their footsteps, taking the music beyond with original compositions, hip improvisations, and some of Djangos lasting greats.

This ‘hot-swing form of jazz has its roots in American popular music and in the reverence for Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and other top American jazz figures. They swing like crazy and will break your heart with a ballad. Each of them are composers and while this music can harken back to the great music of the past, their interpretations, arrangements, virtuosity, and original compositions bring a newness to Djangos style and take it beyond. The Producers call it HIP HOT!

Additional Notes:
Every single Korean citizen has heard of tragic history of ‘the Japanese colonial era. Korea was invaded by Japan, ruthless crimes were committed against Korean people and Korean culture was almost entirely destroyed. But during the present day, many of us are closing our eyes and ears from this tragic history which we must settle. Many thinks our present life is harsh enough that we dont need to look back to our painful history. But they are wrong. The play ‘Flower Shoes takes a close look at ‘independence fighters and ‘comfort women from the Japanese colonial era. The play brings painful reality of that time into life and talks about stories of our brave ancestors who protected Koreas spirit and soul from unimaginable inhuman acts.In the present day, ‘Korea and its ‘citizens could exist thanks to noble sacrifices and efforts of the ancestors who fought for the protection of our history, culture and nation. We want to share this play with audiences in Korea and abroad to inform importance of being responsible citizens for our descendants and insist on efforts to correct invalid history.
