CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio – The closure of Nighttown in 2020 likely meant different things to music fans who regularly frequented the iconic Cedar Road venue. For musical theater students at Baldwin Wallace University in Berea, this meant that an opportunity to gain experience performing in front of a Nighttown audience in a cabaret setting would no longer be available.

As news surfaced that Nighttown is planning to reopen under Gregg Levy’s new ownership in 2022 and once again feature food and jazz music, BW’s young performers have also recently received some good news in this regard. that they will once again have a place, another in Cleveland Heights, to hone their skills.

BW is known for its premier musical theater program, under the direction of Victoria Bussert. For many years, the majority of graduates from the program were signed by a theater officer, an enviable fact for other theater programs across the country. The availability of representation has meant that BW graduates have gained immense experience touring Broadway, off-Broadway and nationally in a company where such experience is difficult to obtain and very valuable.

Bussert noted that several of his former students, many of whom performed at Nighttown, are actively working (or about to do so, as theaters begin to emerge from their COVID-forced disruption) in shows, including Waitress, Book of Mormon, North County Girl, Tina, Hamilton and violin on the roof.

But, before reaching such heights in musical theater, BW students need a place to perform under the professional conditions that Nighttown offers.

Luckily, and through connections, we learned that such a place existed, also in Cleveland Heights. Beaumont School has the “black box” theater room that BW students need and will allow BW to use this theater.

Beaumont, 3301 N. Park Blvd., is home to a 147-seat black box theater – usually a square room with black floors and walls – that comes with professional lighting and sound equipment.

Beaumont President Wendy Hoke readily agreed to allow the use of the school’s theater by BW students, emphasizing the importance of American musical theater and the Great American Songbook.

“We are truly delighted to welcome Baldwin Wallace’s musical theater students to Beaumont School,” said Hoke. “For Beaumont, I think it’s a wonderful way for us to be a resource for the community to help continue to provide a venue for talented young professionals to perform. “

Bruce Hennes, CEO of Hennes Communications, and fan of theater and the BW program, was instrumental in putting Bussert in touch with Hoke, whom he has both known for several years.

“I have known Vicky Bussert for a long time,” said Hennes. “After seeing her (direct) In the woods in Cain Park probably 25 years ago, I took my youngest son and he fell in love with it. We then went to see about 14 different productions over the years, and hers was always the best. That’s because she runs probably the best musical theater program in the United States. And the Clevelanders have no idea it’s right in their backyard.

About 10 years ago, with Nighttown as a client, Hennes approached Bussert to bring Broadway, show tunes, a cabaret, and the Great American Songbook to Nighttown, which only hosted jazz performers.

“She loved the idea,” said Hennes. “We established a formal relationship between the school and Nighttown, and Nighttown became part of the program. She wanted her students to do shows at a little club like Nighttown with the waiters making noise and the customers going up and down, because that’s what they’re going to deal with. Every year, we did the Senior Showcase there, the show for agents and promoters to see the students perform.

After Nighttown closed, Hennes said he was speaking to Hoke and spoke about BW’s dilemma. “She (Hoke) said, ‘We have a black box type theater.’ And I said, ‘What?’ I’ve been (Beaumont) a million times and never knew it, and that’s how it happened.

Jim Wadsworth and his JWP productions are also part of the move to Beaumont, which has handled all music at Nighttown and has produced music events at various venues in Cleveland and Akron since Nighttown closed. Wadsworth noted that the move to Beaumont continues the Nighttown-Baldwin Wallace tradition and once again brings these students to the eastern part of Cleveland.

Without wasting any time, Baldwin Wallace-Beaumont’s first production is slated for October 4 at 7 p.m., when the upper class of the BW Musical Theater Department will present his all-Disney show, “BWMT Does Disney,” featuring hits. from Lion King and The beauty and the Beast To Hercules and Frozen. Wadsworth said it was a kid-friendly program, but one that will appeal to audiences of all ages.

Hennes said he has yet to speak with the new owners of Nighttown about the possibility of returning the BW shows there. In the meantime, he has stated that at least one future BW concert will take place at Beaumont, Kyla Jean Baptiste’s annual concert on February 21. Two more shows will follow, but the venues for these shows have yet to be solidified.

The Oct. 4 show in Beaumont will provide the local audience with the opportunity to see a new group of Baldwin-Wallace theater professionals before starting their careers on the national stage. Tickets, which must be purchased in advance, cost $ 15 per person and can be purchased here. For group sales (10 tickets or more), call 216-978-2047.

Due to COVID restrictions, written proof of two vaccinations must be presented at the door. Unvaccinated children must remain masked at all times.

The Problem with Jon Stewart at Diana the Musical: The Seven Best Shows To Air This Week | Television https://miterceraedad.com/the-problem-with-jon-stewart-at-diana-the-musical-the-seven-best-shows-to-air-this-week-television/ https://miterceraedad.com/the-problem-with-jon-stewart-at-diana-the-musical-the-seven-best-shows-to-air-this-week-television/#respond Fri, 24 Sep 2021 11:02:00 +0000 https://miterceraedad.com/the-problem-with-jon-stewart-at-diana-the-musical-the-seven-best-shows-to-air-this-week-television/

Choice of the week

The problem with Jon Stewart

Apple TV +, starting Thursday, September 30
Perhaps inevitably, satirist Jon Stewart couldn’t stay away from the dumpster fire that is American public life for long. This new weekly show – which will be accompanied by a regular podcast – will address one major issue per episode. Stewart will once again tape his show to a studio audience in New York City with a style that mixes a sharp wit with a degree of sincere liberal desperation. A short teaser, which addressed the pressing issue of Dicks in Space (don’t pretend you don’t know exactly who he’s talking about), also suggested a handful of skits, mixing social commentary with a hint of surrealism.

Starzplay, from Sunday September 26
Black criminal families are generally not allowed to tell vaguely sympathetic origin stories like, say, Italian-Americans. So, for that alone, this series – produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson – deserves to be noticed. Set in the unruly Detroit of the 1980s, it’s based on a true story – the rise of the title Black Mafia Family, led by Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory and Terry “Southwest” Flenory. Big Meech’s son, Demetrius Jr, plays his father and sees Snoop Dogg as a morally ambiguous clergyman.


Hollywood clichés attack!

The visual equivalent of Roger Ebert’s Bigger Little Movie Glossary (inventor of the action thriller trope ‘Flame and Steam Factory’), this unique comedic documentary from Charlie Brooker’s satirical stable takes a look at the addiction of the film industry American with regard to the banal and the hackneyed. Actor Rob Lowe is our guide through a celluloid story of “the cute encounter,” “women running in stilettos” and “running away from explosions” (pictured below), among many other crimes against the originality, with ironic comments from the A-list actors, writers, academics and critics.

“Science is the best,” according to eight-year-old Ada in this American animated series for children from Higher Ground Productions by Barack and Michelle Obama. Along with her friends Rosie Revere, engineer, and Iggy Peck, architect, Ada faces everyday problems, such as her older brother’s smelly shoes or how to carry a stash of pet stones, and tests hypotheses to solve them. . The show keeps the educational aspect light, while a regular epilogue has an actual scientist giving an accessible mini-lecture on their specialization.

Netflix, from Friday October 1
Inspired by Stephanie Land Maid’s bestselling memoir: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive, this drama series from the production team behind Shameless is a brutal but ultimately redemptive take on life at the bottom of the ladder. American. Margaret Qualley is Alex, a woman who runs away from an abusive relationship for the sake of her little girl and soon sees every door slam in her face. It’s the American dream filtered through precarious housing, low-paid work and thwarted aspirations.

For anyone lucky enough who hasn’t seen America’s Greatest Sitcom, all 180 episodes of Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David’s comedy “No Hug, No Learn” are streaming on Netflix. Get ready for the ultimate binge-watch – ideally paired with a bowl of cereal or soup to go. Although it is pre-social media – the show ran from 1989 to 1998 – there is something decidedly modern about the obsession of his New York friends Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer and their almost total lack of empathy for their colleagues, their partners, their parents. or each other.


Diana: the musical

Netflix, from Friday October 1
If you can’t wait for your next The Crown patch, this Broadway musical might be the help for you. Jeanna de Waal lacks the heartbreaking intensity of Emma Corrin as a doomed princess, and as is often the case with American interpretations of British stories, many of the supporting characters are from the 1940s. But, at the very least , it has a certain kitsch value which is reinforced by the musical involvement of Bon Jovi’s keyboardist, David Bryan. Diana’s life often felt like a ballad of melodramatic, maximalist power, so why not?

The Tony Awards are back. Here’s what to expect. https://miterceraedad.com/the-tony-awards-are-back-heres-what-to-expect/ https://miterceraedad.com/the-tony-awards-are-back-heres-what-to-expect/#respond Thu, 23 Sep 2021 20:00:35 +0000 https://miterceraedad.com/the-tony-awards-are-back-heres-what-to-expect/

While Broadway shows are returning, opening, and premiering premieres, audiences – and businesses – will never be the same again.

The community has lost members like actor Nick Cordero and Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally to the coronavirus. At least seven plays written by black artists are expected to open on Broadway stages this season. And the industry doesn’t know if the public is comfortable enough to sit side by side in a theater, even vaccinated and masked.

The Broadway League and the American Theater Wing are looking to the 74th Tony Awards, which will take place at the Winter Garden Theater on Sunday, for their contribution. Originally slated for June 7, 2020, awards have been delayed – and delayed again, after the nominations were announced last October – in a bid to bolster an industry hampered by a pandemic. Here’s a look at how we got here after so much uncertainty.

It’s been over a year and a half since that fateful day – March 12, 2020 – when the curtain fell on the 31 plays and musicals that aired on Broadway. Originally supposed to last only 32 days, the suspension canceled 16 openings scheduled for spring 2020, from March 12 (“Six”, which was only a few hours from its opening night) to April 23 (when “Take Me Out ”was supposed to open).
