The Sounds of Silence

Written by Dennis Kucherawy

The Sounds of Silence
A Chat with Ludovic Bource,
Oscar-nominated Composer of The Artist OST

  The silent movie is an emotional cinema, it’s sensorial; the fact that you don’t go through a text brings you back to a basic way of telling a story that only works on the feelings you have created.  It’s a fascinating way to work…I’m interested in the stylization of reality, the possibility of playing with codes.   That’s how this idea of a film set in the Hollywood of the late ‘20s and early ‘30s, in black and white, was formed.”

American Idiot

Written by Dennis Kucherawy

Dancap’s American Idiot:

Off the Stage and Into Your Face!!!


     Dancap blasts into its 2012 Broadway series tonight with the blistering, sneering American Idiot kicking off the much acclaimed show’s first North American tour.  Arguably, this is the rock musical that brought punk to Broadway and now brings it to Toronto and North America.

DAVID KRANE: My Month With Michelle - Pt II

Written by Dennis Kucherawy

Running Wild:

David Krane and His Month with Michelle -- Part II

Actress Michelle Williams’ performance in My Week with Marilyn (MWWM) as the sexy screen legend Marilyn Monroe has critics around the world predicting she will earn a third Oscar nomination.  Previously, she was nominated for her work in Brokeback Mountain and Blue Valentine.

The temperature's rising,  It isn't surprising,  Michelle certainly can can-can!!

In the classic hit musical My Fair Lady, Professor Henry Higgins bet Colonel Pickering that after six months of teaching proper English to Cockney flower girl Eliza Dolittle, he could pass her off as a duchess at an Embassy Ball.

By comparison, within a month New York-based musician David Krane coached Michelle Williams and vocally transformed the former star of TV’s Dawson Creek and the critically acclaimed and controversial Brokeback Mountain into Marilyn Monroe.  Her scintillating performance as the sultry screen legend in My Week with Marilyn (opening nationwide this Friday), has inspired early Oscar nomination buzz.

In Concert with Idina Menzel

Written by Jo Frankel

     When Idina Menzel sets out to do a PBS special/one-woman show she brings it all. And by all, I mean a powerhouse belt, endearing personal anecdotes, and a feeling that she can’t quite believe she’s really there. Her concert, backed by the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, at Koerner Hall in Toronto on Friday night was everything it was promised to be.

Announces Record-Breaking  2012 Season

*One of Harold Prince’s favorite words 

Alright, so for now the Broadway sensation The Book of Mormon and the Broadway-bound West End hit Ghost – The Musical won’t be coming to Toronto as this blog recently predicted.  However, legendary producer/director Harold (Hal) Prince did arrive here today (as predicted) at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts.  He came on the eve of the 50th anniversary of the world premiere of the movie classic West Side Story, the cinematic adaptation of the beloved stage musical that he originally produced on Broadway.

The Phantom of the Opera

Written by Dennis Kucherawy

Cineplex Entertainment Presents 25th Anniversary Celebration of Entertainment and Musical Theatre History’s Most Successful Production

It is the highest grossing production in entertainment history, grossing more than US $5.1 billion worldwide and earning more than such movies as Avatar and Titanic.

As Broadway’s longest running show, its earnings there alone have surpassed US $800 million.  More than 100 million people in 149 cities in 25 countries have seen the ubiquitous chandelier come crashing down to the accompaniment of crashing, chromatic Grand-Guignol chords.  They have swooned to the story’s romance and been terrified by a plot that has almost as much horror and mystery as today’s stock market.

One bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch… Sure! Go and tell that to the Phantom!
Donny Osmond and Colm Wilkinson, stars in Dancap Productions’ season this summer at the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, bring back a fun memory that could actually be described by a classic Rolling Stones’ hit: “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.”

Time and Eternity Meet On A Cross

Written by Dennis Kucherawy

Time and Eternity Meet On A Cross
Review – Stratford Shakepeare Festival’s Jesus Christ Superstar

“…we find the intersection of time and eternity on a Cross on which God dies in the person of a man, and a man rises from the dead in the person of God…”


Malcolm Muggeridge, A Third Testament.

Des McAnuff’s reinvention of the Seventies rock opera, Jesus Christ Superstar (JCS), now playing to sold-out houses at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, brings the esteemed British journalist’s metaphorical description of Christ’s Passion to startling life right from music director Rick Fox’s very first downbeat.

Life Well Done With a Side of Music

Written by Dane Taylor

I can’t remember a time when Song and Script hasn’t been a part of my adult life. If a retail store could tell stories, what would those stories be about? Well they would be about people. About the people who worked there. The people who shopped. The browsers. The TWs or Time Wasters. The neighbours that you like and the crazies that you can hopefully avoid. Its about the neighbourhood. Yorkville.
