    We rehearsed the Vaughan Williams last night - what a beautiful, transcendent piece. We can't wait to share it with our audience. The Higdon is a total crowd-pleaser, and the short opening work by Macklay adds a fresh, new voice. This is a very cool program! - LS member Collapse

    I absolutely LOVED this production. The script was excellently crafted, and brilliantly and generously acted. The play stands in its own genre of theatre, combining social commentary, humor, action, and the idea of the individual offered as a sacrifice to what society wants. Infused within this are elements of race and worth in the modern society. Because this play is so new, it was easy to feel drawn into something that is speaking of this specific moment in time. The acting was also superb, in particular the protagonist Mace was extremely thoughtfully played by Ricardo Engermann, who combined passion with a sincere reflection of himself that allowed em to follow his story with ease and joy. I cannot recommend this show any more to the seasoned theatre goer, and newcomer alike! Collapse

    Saw Grace recently at Highland Jazz in Newton. Don't be misled by her youth. Musically, she is wise beyond her years. She composes much of her music. A fabulous evening of entertainment!!

    I've attended several Luminarium performances, and have been thrilled with each one. Most recently, I saw "Andromeda" at ArtBeat Festival in Davis Square and again at Somerville Dance Festival in Union Square. Andromeda is just one section of Luminarium's next production "Mythos:Pathos" and I cannot wait to see it. The dancer performed with lights coming off of her body--so creative, and distinct! I spoke with the directors at the last festival, and the rest of show sounds equally engaging. Looking forward to it! Collapse

    I saw Orpheus in the Underworld yesterday, and it was one of the best operas (and shows) that I've seen this year. Singers were great, but they were also wonderful actors; the production was unbelievably funny and well-done. It was pure joy! This was my first time seeing BOC, I will definitely add them to my list of favorites in Boston. Collapse

    A very disappointing concert. Started 30 minutes late. After about 30 minutes of playing RLJ seemed to have trouble concentrating and the songs all sounded alike: sad but spacey. She made little attempt to bond with the audience, even though many were clearly loyal fans. The two supporting musicians were excellent, but the group seemed to have needed more time to practice together. Collapse
