A Series of Fragmentary Reviews

22 03 2011

In January, I music directed a one-act version of Brecht and Weill’s Happy End at UCLA with director Hunter Bird. In February, I music directed The Civilian’s Gone Missing at UCLA with director Lane Williamson. Now, I am music directing the world premiere of my new family musical Thank You, Mr. Falker at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre, again with director Lane Williamson. On top of all this, I have PhD qualifying exams coming up this spring.

Suffice it to say, I haven’t had the time to review all the shows I have seen this year …

But I have a stack of playbills beside my desk, begging for a paragraph or two. Over the next few days, I plan to craft a few fragmentary reviews based on notes that I took just after seeing the shows. Some of the shows closed months ago, but I blog to remember and reflect, as much as to recommend to audiences. I hope you’ll enjoy the series!
