STOMP, the international percussion sensation, returns to Bass Performance Hall April 8-13, 2014. From its beginnings as a street performance in the UK, STOMP has grown into an international sensation over the past 20 years, having performed in more than 50 countries and in front of more than 24 million people. STOMP is presented by Performing Arts Fort Worth.

Fort Worth native John Angeles will be a featured performer in the shows. He attended Nolan Catholic High School and Texas Christian University.

Created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, STOMP continues its phenomenal run with four global productions: the ongoing sell-out production at New York’s Orpheum Theatre, a permanent London company, and North American and European tours. Throughout its life, the show has continued to change by creating new material; next year/this year (depending on when release goes out), it will incorporate two new pieces. It is safe to say you will never again look at supermarket carts or plumbing fixtures the same way… or paint cans, or kitchen sinks or…

STOMP, an overwhelming success marked by rave reviews, numerous awards, and sell-out engagements, is the winner of an Olivier Award for Best Choreography (London’s Tony Award), a New York Obie Award, a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience, and a Special Citation from Best Plays.

In addition to the stage shows, STOMP has received an Academy Award nomination, four Emmy nominations and one Emmy Award for their acclaimed HBO special Stomp Out Loud. Noteworthy TV appearances include The London 2012 Olympic Games Closing Ceremony, The Academy Awards (produced by Quincy Jones), Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, and a series of award-winning international commercials.

The performers “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” says co-founder/director Luke Cresswell. A unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy, STOMP has created its own inimitable, contemporary form of rhythmic expression. Both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in the hands of an idiosyncratic band of body percussionists. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

Synchronized stiff-bristle brooms become a sweeping orchestra; eight Zippo lighters flip open to create a fiery fugue; wooden poles thump and clack in a rhythmic explosion. STOMP uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – dustbins, tea chests, radiator hoses, boots, hub caps – to fill the stage with a compelling and unique performance.

Critics and audiences have raved: “STOMP is as crisp and exuberant as if it had opened yesterday,” says The New York Times. The San Francisco Chronicle declares “STOMP has a beat that just won’t quit!” The Los Angeles Times exclaims: “Electrifying! Triumphs in the infinite variety of the human experience.” “A phenomenal show! Bashing, crashing, smashing, swishing, banging and kicking – a joyous invention!” says The Chicago Tribune.

North Texas loves it some Lucy!

I LOVE LUCY LIVE ON STAGE made its Texas premiere this week at Bass Performance Hall, where it’s proven to be a huge hit, garnering great reviews and attracting near sold-out crowds.

The Star-Telegram’s Mark Lowry wrote, “the giggles, snorts and all-out howls won’t be hard to come by.” He also called the cast performances “fantastic.”

Broadway World‘s Sara Brown also singled out the performances from Sirena Irwin (Lucy), Bill Mendieta (Ricky), Peter Kevoian (an understudy playing the role of Fred) and Joanna Daniels (Ethel), writing, “…at some point I almost forgot they weren’t the real people.”

Theater Jones’ Amy Martin gave the show a thumbs-up, too, calling the inclusion of period TV commercials, “clever”. “The Alka-Seltzer ad is cute, but the one for Brylcreem (“A little dab will do ya”), complete with an 8-foot-tall sandwich board of a tube, caused older members of the audience to visibly swoon.”

Writing for John Garcia’s The Column, reviewer Eric Maskell called the show, “engaging and rewarding, and a time machine for I Love Lucy fans of all ages.”

The cast was up and at ‘em Wednesday morning for media day. Lucy and Ricky performed a little babalu on Good Morning Texas. You can watch the clip here: here.

While Lucy and Ricky were singing and dancing the morning away, across town at KTXD, Joanna Daniels and Mark Christopher Tracy were chatting with “The Broadcast’s” Courtney Kerr and Lisa Pineiro. Watch here.

On opening night, CBS’ Teresa Frosini had a blast with the cast for a live segment.

Performing Arts Fort Worth is proud to present the Texas premiere of I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE, the brand-new, nationally touring hit stage show adapted from the most beloved program in television history. The show runs March 11-16, 2014, at Bass Performance Hall.

I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is the brand-new hit stage show adapted from the most beloved program in television history! America’s favorite foursome – Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel – is live on stage and in color for the very first time!

An “out-of-body experience for ‘Lucy’ fans” according to Showbiz Chicago, I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE takes audience members back to 1952 as members of the Desilu Playhouse studio audience. There, they await the filming of two hilarious and oh-so-familiar I LOVE LUCY® episodes, “The Benefit” and “Lucy Has Her Eyes Examined.” A charming host entertains and enlightens the crowd to the behind-the-scenes filming process of a brand new thing called “television,” the Crystaltone Singers perform advertising jingles in perfect 50s style harmony and the sidesplitting antics of America’s favorite foursome – Lucy, Ricky, Fred and Ethel – are presented live on stage and in color for the very first time! It’s a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience that TV Guide’s William Keck calls “the most entertaining stage production I’ve seen in years – including Broadway!”

Sirena Irwin and Bill Mendieta lead the company as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, reprising the roles they created in the original Los Angeles and Chicago productions. Kevin Remington and Joanna Daniels play Fred and Ethel Mertz, the Ricardo’s loveable landlords and sidekicks. The cast also includes Sarah Elizabeth Combs, Gregory Franklin, Peter Kevoian, Jayme Lake, Carlos Martin, Tyler Milliron, Denise Moses, Cindy Sciacca, Richard Strimer, Mark Christopher Tracy, Carolynne Warren and Tamara Zook.

I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE is staged and directed by Rick Sparks and adapted for the stage with new material by Kim Flagg and Rick Sparks. The creative team also includes Wayne Moore (music direction, arrangements and special lyrics), Peitor Angell (original music), Aaron Henderson (scenic design), Shon LeBlanc (costume design), Kelly Bailey (associate costume design), Chris Wojcieszyn (lighting design), Cricket S. Myers (sound design), Diane Martinous (hair/wig design), Desiree Falcon (make-up design) and Sarah Hall (production stage management).

The I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE on-stage band comprises Wayne Moore (musical director, conductor and first keyboard), Andy Belling (assistant conductor and second keyboard), Ron Barrows (trumpet), Steve Bringelson (bass), Dave Lotfi (drums/conga), David Olivas (saxophone), Nicholas Stankus (guitar, banjo and conga).

The iconic hit sitcom I LOVE LUCY® originally aired on CBS from 1951 – 1957 for a total of six seasons and 179 episodes and is widely considered to be one of the most popular programs in the history of television. The show was a technical trailblazer, pioneering the multi-camera shooting technique (still employed by the majority of traditional sitcoms to this day) and the use of 35mm film for the capture of a weekly, 30-minute scripted television program (which made possible the re-airing of episodes at a later date, what we now know as “reruns”). In September 2012, I LOVE LUCY® was named the “Best TV Show Of All Time” and the “Greatest TV Comedy” by People Magazine and ABC’s “20/20″ special “Best in TV: The Greatest TV Shows of Our Time.”

I LOVE LUCY® LIVE ON STAGE had its world premiere in Los Angeles at the Greenway Court Theatre from October 2011 – February 2012. A subsequent Chicago production was launched that played two sold-out engagements at the Broadway Playhouse, September 2012 – March 2013. The show is produced by Stephen Kahn (executive producer), David George (executive producer), Allan Williams (executive producer), Jeff Davis (executive producer), Hyra George, Kim Flagg, Dede Harris and Sharon Karmizan under license from CBS Consumer Products.

After working its metaphysical magic at Dallas Summer Musicals for two weeks, Ghost The Musical made its debut on Tuesday here at Bass Hall, where it runs until Sunday.

On opening night here, theatergoers raved about the show, calling it “awesome” and “amazing.” BroadwayWorld concurred, calling the show astounding.

To promote the shows, cast members spent a day in Dallas doing press. Steven Grant Douglas and Katie Postotnik, who play the roles of Sam and Molly, absolutely nailed the song “Be Here Now” on WFAA’S Good Morning Texas and KTXD’s The Broadcast. Carla Stewart, who plays Oda Mae Brown (played by Whoopi Goldberg in the movie), was all over the place, chatting with CBS’ Teresa Frosini, NBC 5′s Bobbie Wygant and WFAA’S Midday.

The show is based on the 1990 Academy Award-winning hit movie of the same name, which starred Patrick Swayze as Sam, Demi Moore as Molly and Goldberg as Oda Mae Brown. While the stage version contains the unforgettable song, Unchained Melody, it also features a new score penned by Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart and songwriter Glen Ballard. Stewart chatted with the Star-Telegram about co-writing the score.

But the show’s biggest buzz is about the spectacular special effects. Dallas Morning News’ Nancy Churnin wrote a big piece about these SFX, which include a pair of 25-feet-long LED screens, 350 lights and six projectors.

Presented by Performing Arts Fort Worth, Ghost The Musical runs until Sunday. For tickets and info, click here.

Having a `Beautiful’ time in New York – A Report from the Great White Way

Our Director of Marketing Jason Wise (pictured left) took a quick trip to New York this week for the Broadway League’s Annual Winter Meeting – and, of course, to catch up on a few new Broadway shows. Whenever we’re in New York, we always try to see the latest and greatest Broadway has to offer, in hopes that we’ll be able to bring some of the shows to Bass Hall in the future. Jason sends this report from the Great White Way:

I was thrilled to be able to catch the revival of the play BETRAYAL at the Barrymore Theatre on Tuesday night. Starring Daniel Craig, Rachel Weisz and Rafe Spall, and directed by Mike Nichols, the show has a very limited engagement, running only for 14 weeks.

If you’re in the New York area between now and when it closes on January 5, I highly recommend it. BETRAYAL tells the story of Emma (Rachel Weisz), who is married to Robert (Daniel Craig), a publisher, and her long and complex relationship with Robert’s best friend Jerry (Rafe Spall). All three delivered powerful performances.

Wednesday afternoon, I caught A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER, a new musical comedy that has taken Broadway by storm. Playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre, it’s a “knock-’em-dead hit” that tells the side-splitting tale of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who undertakes a, ahem, process of elimination in order to speed up the line of succession. Tony Award-winning actor Jefferson Mays (I AM MY OWN WIFE, GORE VIDAL’S THE BEST MAN) plays all eight doomed heirs, who meet their ends in ferociously funny ways.

Thursday night, I saw BEAUTIFUL, a great jukebox musical chronicling the life and storied music career of Carole King.

The show, playing at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, features all of King’s hits from her Grammy Award-winning album Tapestry, as well as a lot of her songs written for other artists. It was a great night at the theater and definitely a great show for the road!

Speaking of beautiful, I also snapped a shot of the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Plaza. Happy holidays, everybody!

Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club visits Bass Hall Oct. 2!

Performing Arts Fort Worth warmly welcomes Cuban music ensemble Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club to Bass Performance Hall on Wednesday, October 2, 2013, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $27.50 and are on sale NOW!

The 15-member lineup includes Latin Grammy award-winners Omara Portuondo (vocals) and Eliades Ochoa (guitar, vocals), trumpeter Guajiro Mirabal, and laúd virtuoso Barbarito Torres, all of whom performed on Buena Vista Social Club’s acclaimed 1997 self-titled album.

More than a decade after Buena Vista Social Club’s emergence on the international stage via that Grammy-winning album, along with an Oscar-nominated documentary by acclaimed director Wim Wenders, the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club continues the pioneering work of the original group. Each member hails from Cuba and brings his or her unique perspective to traditional Cuban music and Latin jazz.

Omara Portuondo’s latest solo album Gracias (World Village / Montuno) won a Latin Grammy for Best Contemporary Tropical Album. The New York Times raved: “The years have done nothing to mitigate her vocal prowess. Her voice is rich, shapely, dynamic and still sultry.”

Guajiro Mirabal’s distinctive trumpet sound and colorful phrasing have earned him the title of “The Trumpet of Cuba.” He garnered high praise for the Grammy-nominated Buena Vista Social Club Presents Luis Manual “Guajiro” Mirabal, his tribute to the music of prolific Cuban composer Arsenio Rodriguez.

Santiago de Cuba’s Eliades Ochoa is considered one of the most important soneros of all time and is always an audience favorite with his trademark cowboy hat and his unique harmonic guitar: a tres with added D and G strings.

Barbarito Torres has worked with many of the biggest names in Cuban music, including Celina Gonzalez’s Grupo Campoalegre and the Afro-Cuban All Stars. His 2001 solo album, Havana Café, includes guest appearances by Buena Vista veterans Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo.

After graduating from Instituto Superior de Arte and touring Italy with singer Augusto Enriquez, Roberto Fonseca joined saxophonist Javier Zalba to form Temperamento, a group that became his creative platform for the next 15 years. In 2001, Fonseca joined the Orquestra de Ibrahim Ferrer for a world tour. Led by Ferrer — a Buena Vista Social Club alum — the tour marked the beginning of ongoing and fruitful relationships with various members of BVSC.

Full lineup of Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club:

Omara Portuondo, Lead Vocal
Eliades Ochoa, Guitar and Vocals
Jesus Aguaje Ramos, MD, Trombone, Vocals
Guajiro Mirabal, Trumpet
Barbarito Torres, Laud
Papi Oviedo, Tres
