The Boston Globe: Courtney Love and Todd Almond perform an ‘album’ of greatest hurts (September 26, 2015)
Todd’s stuff is very difficult for me. There’s a lot of pausing, and as he told me, the sex is in the pause. I had to learn that patience and enjoy it. It’s not second nature to me like four-to-the-floor rock is. But it’s new, which is exciting to me.
DigBoston: Talking Kansas City Choir Boy with Stars Courtney Love and Todd Almond (September 16, 2015)
Well, I think that my favorite aspect of theater is the live quality of it, and the fact that you’re making art with [and] for the people that are in the room, at that exact moment.
The story cycle, from the Ghost Quartet’s self-titled release, is by turns humorous and haunting.
Eclectic is the best way to describe Dave Malloy, the award-winning composer/lyricist/arranger/performer who brings his theater piece "Ghost Quartet" to Oberon this Wednesday through Sunday for five performances.
Boston Globe: ‘Ghost Quartet’: a song cycle for the stage, with a concept album vibe (September 5, 2015)
In the grand, old musical-theater tradition, composer/writer/performer Dave Malloy, 39, followed his dream to New York City seven years ago. There, with several decidedly nontraditional off-Broadway hits, he has found fame, along with many of the accolades that the musical theater world has to offer, including two Obie Awards, the Richard Rodgers Award, and a Jonathan Larson Grant.
Ms. Muz is perhaps best remembered for arriving at the opening party wearing only a pale dusting of glitter over her nipples. (A mistake, she acknowledged: “I should have put lipstick on them to make them pop.”)
Stagecraft is never a question at the ART these days. The Broadway design team from the Paulus-directed “Finding Neverland” produces the usual effortless-looking theatrical magic, although this time there’s no actual magic required.
WBUR: With A.R.T.’s ‘Waitress,’ Diane Paulus Whips Up A Musical As Sharp As It Is Sweet (August 20, 2015)
Bareilles has never before undertaken a musical, but her pulsing, piano-driven tunes and sincere, ringing ballads both carry the story and set the now quirky, now aching mood.
CBS: Sara Bareilles Excited For First Musical ‘Waitress’ At American Repertory Theater (August 11, 2015)
By any measure, Sara Bareilles is a major star. Now she is lending that immense talent to the stage. The 35-year-old singer-songwriter has written her first musical, called “Waitress,” based on the 2007 film. It will open this month at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge.
