Lou Reed Concert Film Berlin Streaming Free Online for the Next Week Last laughs can be sweet, and according to music journalist, Anthony DeCurtis, his friend, the late Lou Reed, “reveled” in the critical drubbing that greeted his 3rd solo album, 1973’s Berlin. Not immediately, however. Berlin, which followed hard on the heels of Reed’s widely adored Transformer, had a painful, protracted delivery. This was due in part due to RCA execs getting cold feet about releasing Reed’s grim concept record as a double albu...

St. Ann’s Warehouse has 10 big double doors and a new air ionization system. … They are pressing state regulators to consider a series of architectural advantages that they say should make their buildings easier to adapt for safety than the glorious but cramped houses that symbolize New York’s theater district.” – The New York Times...

Oklahoma! - Far More Than Just Okay

Reviewed by Judd Hollander The true strength of a classical piece of theatre is its ability to be re-imagined without losing those elements which made it special in the first place. Case in point: the rousing production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's  Oklahoma ! at St. Ann ’s Warehouse. Director Daniel Fish, choreographer John Heginbotham and a top-notch cast transforming the 1943 musical into a stripped-down, semi-immersive experience. With a score that, thanks to the very capable hand...

Ballyturk - Where The End Of The Road Is Just Out Of Sight

Reviewed by Judd Hollander If "sleep is freedom", as one character points out in Enda Walsh's Ballyturk, then it follows that ignorance is bliss and knowledge offers an awareness that can be truly devastating. The play now having its American premiere at St. Ann 's Warehouse. Two unnamed men - referred to as 1 (Tadhg Murphy) and 2 (Mikel Murfi) in the show program - are living in a somewhat homey, somewhat Spartan space. Exactly where and when this space is located and why the...

Faith, Hope and Medical Technology Still Strong in Boston

Excerpted from my address at the Granite Links Golf Course Gala Celebration on April 24, 2016 for students at Elizabeth Ann Seton Girls Catholic High School in Dorchester, Boston. Sometimes we can be our own worst critics! I can't tell you how often I've heard people say that fewer Catholics attend Church anymore. People don't care anymore. But it's often the same people that don't go to Mass who say that. If 8 people had a protest rally against the Church, the police or something against fami...

First Nighter: St. Ann's "Streetcar Named Desire" Leaves a Certain Amount to Be Desired

Although there's much to praise in the Young Vic-Joshua Andrews co-production of Tennessee Wiliams's superb A Street Car Named Desire, now transported to St. Ann's Warehouse, the laurels go mostly to the cast. About other prominent aspects, there's much to question. Indeed, the off-kilter impression begins not when the play, directed with obvious confusion by Benedict Andrews, begins. It commences as the patrons enter to be seated on four sides and get a lengthy gander at the set. (FYI: The Youn...
