When will big-name stars return to Southern California casinos after coronavirus?

Together, J Balvin, Pitbull, Mary J. Blige, Ke$ha and the Hollywood Vampires sound like they should be on a poster for a festival lineup somewhere. In 2019, they were among the big-name stars who played Southern California’s casino showrooms. However, in 2020, nearly all plans for an encore were dashed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Many of Southern California’s tribally-owned casinos with entertainment venues, including Casino Pauma; Fantasy Springs Resort Casino; Harrah’s Resort Southern...

‘Succession’ Star Jeremy Strong, Composer Nicholas Britell on How Season 2’s ‘L to the OG Rap’ Almost Didn’t Happen

A highlight of the second season of “Succession” was the scene in which Logan Roy (Brian Cox), celebrating his 50th work anniversary, gets serenaded by his number one son Kendall (Jeremy Strong). No Sinatra or Frankie Valli here, rather  Kendall takes the stage and breaks into a rap. The nervy, unhinged and cringeworthy “L to […]

Theater review: Will Jimmy Buffett fans want to belly up to see ‘Escape to Margaritaville’?

All jukebox musicals — one of the few formats these days guaranteed to bankroll a Broadway show — are built on hit songs. Whether we want to see these shows often depends most on how we feel about the artist or band who did those songs. For instance, despite its skimpy book, I enjoyed “Beautiful” a lot because I really like Carole King’s music. I liked “Jersey Boys” less than other people mainly because Frankie Valli’s high, nasal voice isn’t my thing. I sat through “The Cher Show” because, basi...

Composers Collaborate!

In the beginning of August 2018, I was in Montpelier, Vermont, preparing to give a talk to the students enrolled in the Vermont College of Fine Arts MFA in Music Composition Program. My talk was titled, “How Many Hats Can a Composer Wear Successfully?”. I looked out at my colleagues in the room. I knew what the response would be: one of beleaguered pride, the pride of a warrior who knows the score and has survived despite the odds against him or her. In that moment, I realized that I didn’t real...
