We had rolled into New Bedford, Mass., for the annual Summerfest on Saturday morning, July 2nd, spit out of a twister. By Saturday, I shoulda€™ve been caught up on sleep, but struggled to find the energy for the game of musical chairs at Summerfest.
Over the weekend, each of seven stages off the cobbled streets of the Whaling Museum district grew packed to overflowing. There was no mad dash for us for the first performance at the small canopied area at the National Park Garden Stage. That first act was a€?Introducing Liz Longley.a€? This proved to be a priority-changing event.
I also managed to squeeze in an on-the-spot interview at a surprisingly subdued side room at the nearby, bustling Celtic Coffeehouse. Her father was a a€?really gooda€? jazz musician who played saxophone and had his own band.
Exposure to chorus was minimal in grade school, but when she reached her early teens, she started singing with her dada€™s jazz group and continued until she was 18. Having begun writing on piano, Liz began performing with a friend, Sarah Zimmermann, who provided guitar backup.
Additionally, Liz and Sarah performed at fundraisers, in particular a€?Relay for Life,a€? held every year to raise money for cancer research. They also played professionally at local Pennsylvania folk landmarks Steel City (Phoenixville) and The Tin Angel (Philadelphia). After high school, Berklee College of Music in Boston was the only college Liz applied to because it offered songwriting as a major. She still performs on piano when the opportunity presents itself, and thata€™s illustrated by two slow ballads on this CD where she uses her keyboard skills.
Her upcoming shows dona€™t include anything in the New York metro area, but wea€™re hoping this article will change that. The photograph we found online for our a€?Radara€? July ad showed a drop-dead beautiful face, and we wondered if there was matching talent to back it up. High school proved to be the seeding ground for this musical maelstrom, this force of nature. Also don't forget to visit our completely unofficial Lasgo page with song samples of all the remixes! DJ Philip - resident DJ at the Illusion club and also known as producer of Zippora's Lotus Eater - will bring out a new Tales of DJ Philip II with the beautiful voice of Marsha. The original techno-galaxy will be completely isolated for the true, booming Kozzmozz-sound and from the tribunes the public will be able to watch their friends freak & dance.
The Tech-House galaxy will also be back at its original location and will offer the most qualitative tech-house sounds around.
For the fans there's the drum 'n' bass room again of course and this edition we opted for a huge chill-out with plasma-screens for your viewing pleasure. Will I, the successor of Castles in the sky will presumably released on November 12th, 2001 ! UK: Positiva is planning remixes and promotion to start off at the end of 2001 and a release in the beginning of next year. We ditched the old menu because it was slow on some computers and not really browser-compatible. DJ Tiesto, well known from the danceremix of Delirium's Silence and his own Flight 643 is coming to Belgium ! On November 17th (hey that's two days before my birthday ;-)) DJ Tiesto will be DJ-ing at club La Rocca in Lier from 23h till 5 in the morning ! The full album will probably released on November 15th, 2001 as already reported here on dancevibes.
This year we have seen the release of The Legacy and in February 2002 we may expect Push next single Tranzy State of Mind. In the near future we will make it possible for you to add your own reviews and ratings too! The highlight was offcourse Faithless who won 3 awards !: Best international single with We come 1, best international live act and best international danceact !
The belgian Hooverphonic (a personal favourite) also won 3 awards: best national live act, best national album and best national female singer! Belgian dance artists also won a few prizes: Best national dance Act - Milk Inc, best national single - Something by Lasgo, best national videoclip - Milc Inc. Take a direct, simple story, unfold it with exquisite care, and the result is a gem of a play opening Northlighta€™s 37th season. The snapshots, originally photos clutched in their hands, become large projections on the paneled walls before actually springing to life in the form of two incarnations of their earlier selves: Susie and Danny (Megan Long and Nick Cosgrove) and Susan and Daniel (Jess Godwin and Tony Clarno).
And what songs they are: 28 drawn from 12 successful musicals a€“ all written by Stephen Schwartz. The cast has remarkable voices, clear and compelling and their dramatic ability marches the timbre a€“ moving from humor to nostalgia with ease as past and present intermingle and advice is exchanged back and forth, neatly breaking barriers as they address their earlier selves. Kudos to Jack Magaw for the multi-level set, Karl Christian for musical staging, Steve Orich for Musical direction and arrangements, A and to the orchestra: Chris Sargent, Scott Reed, Paul Dallas, Jeffrey Handley and Marc Hogan. While Act I is stronger than the slower second act, by playa€™s end the viewers responded to much that reached their hearts.A  On opening night, not a few wiped away tears as they joined the rest of the audience for a standing ovation.
The idea works because of the originality of the set-up, but also because Schwartz's songs, filled with aspiration and quizzical wonder, fit the basic premise so well.
I could go on about many more such inspired musical choices here, most of which are beautifully sung, especially by Long and Clarno.
I imagine Schwartz aficionados will enjoy Snapshots as a clever twist on the revue or jukebox musical, but I was impressed that it also works as something entirely new. Touching musical comedy at Northlight blends new lyrics to familiar Stephen Schwartz music. A At the center of one of the most highly anticipated productions of the Northlight Theatre's 2011-2012 season, Snapshots (music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, book by David Stern and directed by Ken Sawyer) are Dan (Gene Weygandt)and Sue (Susie McMonagle), a long-time couple that have been friends since childhood, back when they were still known as Danny (Nick Cosgrove) and Susie (Megan Long).
When the play opens, Sue, dissatisfied with the state of their marriage, is up in the attic of their home, suitcase packed, in the middle of writing Dan a letter explaining that she has decided to leave him.
While puttering around in the attic, talking with Sue, he comes across a box of snapshots on the floor, much of its contents spilled out. Though they do love and care about each other a great deal (therea€™s no doubt about that), therea€™s also no denying that there are real problems in the relationship. SNAPSHOTS is a new musical by the amazing Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Godspell, The Bakera€™s Wife)!! A group of very talented theatre folk and myself formed a theatrical production company called Cardboard Belt Productions. When a box of old photographs tumbles from a dusty attic shelf, Dan and Sue are flooded with memories of their many years together. In many ways, "Snapshotsa€? marks Schwartza€™s return to smaller, more intimate shows.
Lyric rewrites have made many of Schwartza€™s retrofitted songs more suitable for their new settings, but too often I found myself imagining them in their original contexts. Stern has crafted a book whose well-drawn characters and realistic situations offer something every audience member can identify with.
The authors have opted to ignore conventional uses of time and space, a ploy that results in the past intruding on the present and vice versa: a charactera€™s older self giving advice to his more youthful counterpart, and a young girl questioning the woman she fears shea€™ll become. Snapshots will open the 2010-2011 season.A  The remainder of the season will be announced soon.
Blending together some of the best-loved music with some of the genuinely wonderful lesser known gems of renowned Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz, this touching romantic comedy exposes a marriage at a crossroads.A  Newly adapted, this musical reveals the humorous twists and unexpected turns of a middle-aged couple's reminiscence of how love brought them together and why life pushed them apart. Relevant Theatricals and Cardboard Belt Productions have been developing this project for the past several years and most recently workedA on the musical with David Stern, Stephen Schwartz and the creative team in preparation for its Chicago premiere.


Northlight Theatre aspires to promote change of perspective and encourage compassion by exploring the depth of our humanity across a bold spectrum of theatrical experiences, reflecting our community to the world and the world to our community. Snapshots may be available for licensing in the future, and will be appropriate for groups who need a small show, as it involves only six actors, four musicians, and a single set. Bookwriter David Stern brought Stephen Schwartz the idea of using a compilations of Schwartz songs to create a musical scrapbook of a couple's life.
Wednesday night, finish the July issue, then get two hours of sleep; Thursday, pedal-to-the-metal from NYC to Fall River, Mass.
Newly appointed chair police at the main Custom House stage prevented attendees from saving seats for hours at a time. Seats opened up after each act and the first attendees to dash to freshly vacated chairs near the front became winners. As usual, we arrived at the festival at about 9:00 am and the first show didna€™t begin until 11. Liz was scheduled to perform 10 days later on July 12 at the Living Room in New York Citya€™s East Village.
From the very first notes, it was obvious that we were going to want to see and hear a lot more from this brilliant 23-year-old. I would not be jumping from tent to tent, looking for the best seats, hoping to find something near the front at the big Custom House tent. For her first eight years her family lived in West Chester, Pa., then they moved a little further west, to Downingtown.
Her mother was an aspiring singer, but lacked the time and opportunity to pursue it as a career. Through her dad, shea€™d gotten exposure to Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan and they were her favorites, the ones she focused on. Other events included the high schoola€™s talent show and the senior prom, with both girls performing in their prom dresses. Liz said that she entrusted major decisions in the studio to producer Glen Barrett and enlisted feedback from her parents to help her decide what, in the end, would be the right sound for her on each track. These include a€?Little White House,a€? seemingly a farewell to her childhood, and a€?Unraveling,a€? another farewell of sorts to her grandmother, suffering from Alzheimera€™s. Her dad told her, a€?If youa€™re going to learn to have a career as a musician, youa€™d better start now.a€? Actually, performing after college was a continuation of what shea€™d been doing since high school and during her four years at Berklee.
Check out the biography of the group and listen to their hit-single Teach me how on the official Whyzer site ! Also released on that day is a new version of their full-album Chances and this version will include special remixes, acoustic versions and video clips !
It's not the regular performance because this time the whole international press will be present, most probably also including people from the USA and Canada ! You can now search through the news and you can also display the news about a certain category only (eg. The three couples interact to sing and dramatize specific, emotion-filled episodes that trace the two from their early days in elementary school A a€“ hitting on many rites of passageA  a€” A before moving on to courtship and highlights of their 30 years together.
The melodies are recognizable from many of these shows which include Wicked, Pippin, A Godspell, The Magic Show, Rags, Personals, The Bakera€™s Wife, Enchanted, Captain Louie, Working, Reluctant Pilgrim and Children of Eden a€“ but the lyrics have been rewritten to fit the new dramatic situation. The musical logo flashes onto the attic walls.A  Ita€™s a powerful kick-off to the singing revue. The playa€™s book is by David Stern.a€?a€?Schwartz, a prolific composer and lyricist whose resume includes Godspell, Pippin, The Bakera€™s Wife, Working, RagsA and Wicked, has taken more than 25 musical numbers from these and his other works and adapted lyrics to fit Snapshots. Just as shea€™s almost done, about to make the move and leave, Dan comes up, genuinely confused about what she might be doing up there.A Rather than giving him the letter or informing him of her plans to leave him herself, she comes up with an excuse. While he gathers them up, one in particular catches his eye -- a photo taken during a trip that they took to the Caribbean many years earlier. Much of the time they act as if they expect one another to be mind readers, each expecting the other to just somehow know what they want them to do or say. Ten years ago we began working with Stephen Schwartz and David Stern to bring this fantastic musical to the stage.

In addition to capturing a moment in time, they hold myriad memories for those whose images are pictured within. A cast of six portrays Dan and Sue at three stages in their lives: as childhood friends, as newlyweds and as a couple whose 30-year marriage is falling apart. As they reflect on their past, they recall happier times they spent together, a few missed opportunities and some of the inevitable challenges every couple faces. It shares similarities with Dan Goggina€™s "Balancing Act,a€? a chamber musical with a main character whose conflicting personalities are played by five actors. Who doesna€™t remember a first crush, an awkward first kiss, rites of passage and missed opportunities? Evans announce the first show of Northlight's 2010-2011 season, A Snapshots, a new show described by the authors as a "musical scrapbook," that includes some of the best-loved music and lyrics by the creator of Wicked, Godspell, Pippin! He collaborated with Leonard Bernstein on the English texts for Bernstein's Mass and wrote the title song for the play and movie Butterflies Are Free. Ken is a BFA graduate of The Juilliard School.A  He is also an alumnus of the Lincoln Center Director's Lab West and the LaMama Italy International Directors Workshop.
Several theatre groups staged new versions of it in the summer of 2007, including Dayton, Ohio's The Human Race, whose production is pictured in the photo with cast members Kristy Cates and Michael Marcotte. Then, with breathtaking suddenness it darted upward, taking the hollow in my chest along with it. The chairs were empty and there were no chair police to prevent us from saving a couple of seats for the first act. Wea€™d see her then, of course, since we never miss WFUV DJ John Platta€™s monthly a€?On Your Radara€? series. Instead, I followed Liz from one stage to the next, seeking the best photos and videos of her that I could get (below).
Her earliest memories involve driving around with her father in the family VW convertible with the top down and music blasting from the car stereo. The lone cover, a€?People Get Ready,a€? demonstrates a command that allows her to take ownership of the song. While it did come up in our interview, her Facebook page states it more succinctly: a€?In high school, I was a marching band nerd.
It also tells of how people judge others without knowing anything about them, which we, as a couple have experienced so many times ourselves.
What might be clunky in other hands, flows smoothly under the expert direction of Ken Sawyer. He shows up from work, oblivious as ever, and the two end up looking back through their lives as lovers, parents and take-each-other-for-granted spouses, with the wife's impending exit providing the requisite tension. Press about this show has revealed that Schwartz has re-written some of his lyrics to fit the new narrative, but other than noting such changes in a couple tunes from Wicked, I have no idea what was altered or to what extent. Ita€™s a creative endeavor that works well.a€?a€?The show, featuring a pitch-perfect cast bursting with talent, opens in a cluttered attic where middle-aged Sue (Susie McMonagle), packed suitcase in hand, is poking through keepsakes. While they are up there, Dan starts to go through the items that have gathered over the years, pointing out what he feels they can get rid of.
It is also through these glimpses, these memories, that we learn about what really happened versus how they remember certain events in their lives happening, how they went from childhood friends to married couple, to married couple on the verge of breaking up after decades of being together.
Indeed they go to great lengths not to talk about anything of substance, to avoid any unpleasantness or arguments. We then teamed up with Relevant Theatricals (Million Dollar Quartet) and have workshopped SNAPSHOTS at Theatre Works, The Village Theatre, The Human Race Theatre, Seaside Music Theatre and more to come. Schwartz has taken his most famous songs and brilliantly reworked them into an entirely new powerful book written by David Stern.


Ita€™s a creative endeavor that works well.The show, featuring a pitch-perfect cast bursting with talent, opens in a cluttered attic where middle-aged Sue (Susie McMonagle), packed suitcase in hand, is poking through keepsakes. They also have the power to rekindle powerful emotions years, even decades, after they were taken. Schwartz has rewritten many of the lyrics to even the most familiar songs, to stay true to the fascinating story and characters of this new work.A  Funny and bittersweet, Snapshots brings into focus all the wonders and frustrations of trusting your heart and believing your memories. Schwartz was intrigued by the notion, and gave permission for the concept to be developed further.
As she states on her Facebook page: a€?I grew up listening to Joni Mitchell and Karla Bonoff. James Taylor, Karla Bonoff, Joni Mitchell and Sarah McLachlan were among the names she cited. I was surprised that she hadna€™t sought feedback from anyone at Berklee, but kept to the formula stated above. One is a version of Joni Mitchella€™s a€?Rivera€? in which Liz hits some high notes that Joni herself might not be able to handle anymore. Their younger selves, variously played by Megan Long, Jess Godwin, Nick Cosgrove and Tony Clarno, act out vistas from their lives, singing Schwartz as they go, often with lyrics newly penned by the composer himself. Feeling distant from her workaholic husband Dan (Gene Weygrandt), she is ready to call it quits after 20 years of marriage to her childhood sweetheart in order to chase a dream of intimacy that has eluded her.a€?a€?Before Sue can get out the door, Dan comes home early from the office and joins her, and the pair spend time pouring over old photos.

A Snapshots, with book by David Stern, music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, A direction by Ken Sawyer, musical staging by Karl Christian, and musical supervision and arrangements by Steve Orich, will run at Northlight Theatre, 9501 Skokie Blvd in Skokie, September 16 - October 23, 2011. For films, he collaborated with Alan Menken on the songs for Disney's Enchanted as well as the animated features Pocahontas and The Hunchback Of Notre Dame and wrote the songs for the DreamWorks animated feature The Prince Of Egypt. Early versions were produced in the mid 90s, and over time, it evolved in terms of the story and the lyrics.
But we didna€™t know her, so we figured it would be a good idea to get acquainted before seeing her at the Living Room. The first two use a full studio band, complete with drums, bass, lead guitar backup, pedal steel a€” the works. The second is Van Morrisona€™s a€?Moondance,a€? which gives Liz a chance to show off her jazz vocal skills.
When I wasna€™t on the field, I was writing music (on piano & guitar) and playing shows. These snapshots trigger memories of when they first met, birthday parties, family gatherings, a€?best palsa€? during their college years, dating experiences (with one another and others) and eventually their engagement and birth of a college-age son. Growing up Susie had her own dreams, wanted her own career, all of which now seems to have taken a backseat to raising a family, while Daniel spent much of his time away, often working 70 hours a week. This included a a€?concert night,a€? wherein the school invited students and parents to come to a performance solely by Liz and Sarah. In contrast, her third album, the latest, Hot Loose Wire, completed right after graduation, is stripped down a€” just her, solo, with either guitar or piano a€” pretty much what we see in concert. While those long hours were necessary early on, when they were young a€“ they wouldna€™t have been able support a family without that job a€“ he long ago could have scaled back to a much more reasonable, manageable schedule that would have allowed him to spend more time with Sue, yet somehow he never did, leaving her to feel essentially alone.
His first opera, Seance on a Wet Afternoon, premiered with Opera Santa Barbara in the fall of 2009. Theya€™d bring in a song and other students would dissect it, asking questions like why a word was used in a particular place.
But what really brings them to life are four hard-working cast members who re-enact these various milestones in song and dialogue.
Compounding the problem is that Dan has fallen into a familiar pattern of long hours spent at work, not recognizing that there is any sort of problem at home, whatsoever. There were classes where songs by famous writers were analyzed, and Liz loved it all, soaking up every learning opportunity that came her way. From his perspective, he doesna€™t recognize that a problem exists, therefore there isna€™t one, all of which leads up to the point where the play begins a€¦ the point at which Sue must decide whether she is to leave or stay and try to work their problems out together. Tony Clarno as Daniel, Jess Godwin as Susan, Nick Cosgrove as Danny and Megan Long as Susie are shadow figures from the past, younger versions of Ken and Sue with whom they often interact. Under the auspices of the ASCAP Foundation, he runs musical theatre workshops in New York and Los Angeles, and is currently the President of the Dramatists' Guild. As the events play out, they dona€™t always match how the principal characters remember them.A A A  Many of the rekindled events are hilarious. In the first apartment that he will share with Sue, Dan has a number of surprise female visitors, baggage from his past, who literally pop up from the most unexpected places.
Schwartz has recently been given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and inducted into the Theatre Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Even funnier is a bedroom scene where more ghosts put in an appearance (Godwin, changing wigs and intonation in rapid succession). Other awards include three Academy Awards, four Grammy Awards, four Drama Desk Awards, and a tiny handful of tennis trophies. It reminds us very much of the old cabaret-style records of the twenties and thirties, but up to date. GREAT FUN!i»?Apparently, the multi-taleneted Mike has written this as the theme song for a TV series he has written, titled 'The Bitter End', which he is usure of where to go with it. Brandy's voice is sweet and perfectly suited to the track i»?Forever Young, and yet she can be full of fun as well, as in the track Never Wed an Old Man (Here that Nikki?
The band comprises of Nicko on Bass, Rob on Guitar, Stewie on Drums, Rich on Keys and Sam on Vocals.
Currently working on their self-penned debut album, Section IV's intention is to create thought provoking accesible progressive music.
All the members of the band are experienced musicians, both on the stage and in the studio.Descriptionsection IV. Phil introduced it thus: A I wrote this song in 1998 having been reduced to tears on my knees watching the news reports with poor baby Orangutan's that had been burnt in the forest fires after El nino. An old band member drew a beautiful picture of a baby Orangutan for the cover and I used the International weather satellite image of the area as the back cover. The last I heard he had moved onto enabling the forests to regrow at a much faster rate than normal, which was very successful.
Dr Galdicas, who gave the Orang's their name, meaning "Old Man Of The Forest", at Orangutan International Foundation loved this song also. A  I learned something from every man I met or exchanged emails with, and Lou taught me a few words in Spanish.A  Ole!
