Hot, hot hot – Sarasota Ballet Turns in One of its Finest Performances of the Decade

“Redefined Movement” began with “Les Rendezvous” – a gorgeous, frothy confection by Sir Frederick Ashton that, as Marie Kondo would say, truly sparks joy. Dreamy crisp white costumes were punctuated with pink ribbons on the female dancers and blue accents on the males. This was also the first of three performances by relative newcomer Ivan Spitale who, even sharing the stage with the glorious Marcelo Gomes, was truly the MVP of the night. His height and carriage made a splash from the first…See More

A Tremendous Triumvirate Cast Bring a Lyrical Essay to Life

As we crest into the 2020s, John Adams' famous incantation that “facts are stubborn things” has never been more relevant. As a result, Asolo Repertory Theatre’s latest production “The Lifespan of a Fact” has been my most highly anticipated show of the season. We are living through an era where, depending on your point of view, facts are either the most sacred of all things or they are dispensable in a so-called “post-truth” era. With speed and agility, the tremendous triumvirate of Tracy…See More

All Aboard for Fresh and Engaging Murder on the Orient Express

While Agatha Christie’s “Murder on the Orient Express” set in 1934 is perhaps the most famous of the murder mystery genre, I managed to walk into the Asolo Repertory Theatre’s play entirely spoiler-free. As a result, “Murder” was a fresh and engaging production.   Christie’s simple concept of placing a group of intriguing characters in close quarters when a murder takes place is positively brilliant and has spawned a panoply of copycat productions as well as the wildly popular murder mystery…See More

"In a State of Weightlessness" Caps a Night of Tribute to Graziano

Beloved principal dancer Ricardo Graziano, who has been dazzling audiences with his charismatic performances and generous partnering, was honored with a retrospective of his diverse choreography. Eight years ago, Artistic Director Iain Webb suggested Graziano begin choreographing ballets – a wise move for a dancer of Graziano’s calibre to carry on his legacy. Great performers live on in our memories, yet dancer/choreographers solidify their place in dance history every time their work is…See More

Writer, Co-Owner AnythingArts.com
A little about me (so that you know I am a real person and not a spammer!)
I love the arts to my very core. I have lived in Sarasota for eleven years, and this wonderful town has been a perfect blend of aesthetic beauty and thriving arts scene for me. I moved here from Manhattan, where I lived for ten years, where I lived like a tourist seeing Broadway shows, exhibits, dance performances, etc. all the time. I love that my family and I can be busy enjoying arts and culture in Sarasota! I also enjoy having the opportunity to share my point of view of productions with others on a regular basis.

Don't miss Maddie Shea Baldwin's Debut as Maria Extraordinaire in "Sound of Music"

Posted on November 24, 2019 at 2:16pm 0 Comments

Despite my lifelong love affair with Broadway, I have never seen a professional production of “The Sound of Music.” I had the record as a child so I know nearly every song by heart; and, along with legions of fans, I believe the iconic film is the greatest movie musical ever made.

Throw in the chance to see another Josh Rhodes production at Asolo Repertory Theatre and my anticipation for this season’s…
