Where: The Hippodrome

When: April 26th-27th 2014

More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it’s back, and mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time. Directed by David Saint, using Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents’ Broadway direction, West Side Story remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The new Broadway cast album of West Side Story recently won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway’s finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as “Something’s Coming,” “Tonight,” “America,” “I Feel Pretty” and “Somewhere.”

news_444-1374499787Wise Up: Thoughts (Remixes & Reworks)

Elvis Costello and The Roots

Grade: B+

This album, definitely takes you on a journey of musical exploration. The title track, “Cinco Minutos Con Von” is a fusion of Latin jazz and and rap. The journey continues into a 50s inspired ballad, represented in the song, “The Puppet has cut his strings.” This 7 song album, definitely is a great listen for those who are fans of Elvis and The Roots, but also for new fans of the music. Wise up: Thoughts, is a great diverge from the general pop music scene out there. For those looking for a refreshing, innovative music, definitely give this album a listen!
