West Side Story

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

westsidestory1

Prices
Tickets: $46.50–$121.50, premium $300

Book writer and now director Arthur Laurents has piloted his infamous gang members, the Jets, out of lovable-ruffian territory into a darker zone, where they often exude a sense of reckless menace. That’s good, since Matt Cavenaugh’s Tony never lets you forget you’re watching a musical. Karen Olivo’s Anita offers a potent mix of sexual bravado and streetwise sadness, and Josefina Scaglione embodies Maria with heart-lifting simplicity. Of course the chief glory of this classic is the Leonard Bernstein score, terrific sounding with a full orchestra. Overall, this subtly recalibrated revival is Broadway in very fine form: standing up to face darkness head on, and unafraid to be a thing of beauty.—AF

Burnt Sugar

Monday, November 16th, 2009

Burnt Sugar features guitar-wielding critic Greg Tate, who probably acquired more than one revelation from Miles Davis’s Bitches Brew. Thankfully, however, Tate has plenty of his own voodoo to run down. Using a conduction method on loan from Butch Morris, he spurs the large ensemble, always well-stocked with downtown-jazz luminaries, to acid-funk ecstasy. Tonight the combo celebrates ten years in the game, and the release of a new disc, Making Love to the Dark Ages.

Prices:
Tickets: at tables $15 plus $5 minimum, at bar $10

When:
Tonight 8pm, 10:30pm

Where:
Blue Note
131 W 3rd St (between MacDougal St and Sixth Ave)
