 A Grand Night for Singing
 
A Rodgers and Hammerstein Musical Revue
 
Venue: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
Producer: ( Nutley Little Theatre)
Nutley Little Theatre
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.

Put your sawed-off severed hands together! Hot off their premiere in The Public Theater's musical adaptation of Twelfth Night, and just in time for New York Comic Con, Angela Hariell's dance company, The Love Show, reunites with Corn Mo's band, .357 Lover, to mount a fully realized theatrical run of their rock opera nightclub hit BOOMSTICK BALLET: A Bruce Campbell Dance Opera in 3 Acts. The show is a rollicking and reverentially irreverent homage to two Sam Raimi films and one Don Coscarelli film that starred the Cary Grant of cult classic horror flicks, Bruce Campbell! It premiered at (le) poisson rouge on Saturday, October 10, 2015, to an enthusiastic crowd of both seasoned Campbell aficionados and eager newbies. Due to popular demand, it is slated to return on October 6, 7, and 8, 2016 at Theater for the New City. Prepare for an evening of mayhem, beauty and slapstick, told through dynamic contemporary dance, theater, and original live rock 'n' roll!

Hysterically delicious pop rocks!?- John Cameron Mitchell…he brought out his four-piece rock band to bring down the house with mixing classic rock, playfulness, and sheer brilliance.- CMJ.357 Lover are absolutely unique and they tell a wicked story. Corn Mo's voice is simultaneously disarming, unassuming, cocky, and above all, fucking good. His songs are about micro slices of the absurdities in life, those tiny moments that push the pedals of life. These are the moments that fall through the cracks as most songwriters try to literally force you to feel. These songs bring you in and let you cash in on the experiences that we all forget in the shuffle. That's why if you spend three minutes a day listening to .357 Lover you'll literally live longer.- Ben FoldsCorn Mo uses this quirky soundscape to compose mini-anthems, heroic passages and chaotic polkas. If his spiritual father is Freddie Mercury, then his spiritual uncle is Tiny Tim.-Dallas Observer
