The Allman Brothers
Luba onstage at the Beacon Theatre

I have not always been their BIGGEST fan but a FAN nonetheless over the years. And I confess, this was the first time I saw them play live and was I in for a real surprise! Like clockwork, (I was told), the scent of pot began drifting at the downbeat of 8PM when the show was about to begin. A sold out theater begins to get restless and then slowly starts to roar as the musicians walk out on stage with Greg Allman the last to take his place at the keyboards/organ.

The evening a treat!! Taking you back to the 70's but staying current with the agile and furious playing of lead guitarists Derek Trucks and Warren Haynes. Different styles but both dope. Also Marc Quiñones, their percussionist, adds a complex tapestry of rhythmic fills which drives the music ever so intently. And Greg... amazed how great he still sounds in the vocals! A true testament to defying age.

Catch them ANYWHERE this year because 2014 is the last year they'll be touring.

(Note: the four remaining shows at the Beacon Theater in March have been postponed according to a note on their web site.)

Michael John LaChiusa
(NORTH ADAMS, Mass.) – There will be a work-in-progress public showing of First Daughter Suite, a new work by Tony Award-nominated composer and lyricist Michael John LaChiusa, at MASS MoCA on Saturday, December 7, 2013, at 8pm. The performance is the culmination of a residency by the renowned Sundance Institute Theatre Program’s fall musical and ensemble Theatre Lab that offers workshop support to playwrights, directors, composers, and librettists.
Directed by Kirsten Sanderson, First Daughter Suite is part of a cycle of musical plays that began with First Lady Suite (1992). A fantasia based on historical characters and real events, First Daughter Suite explores the complex dynamic between mothers and daughters, as experienced by the women and children closest to the President of the United States. Despite the rarefied environment of the White House and accompanying trials of the presidency, each faces obstacles that are common to us all.

The Oct. 14 reading included Kate Baldwin, Carolee Carmello, Kathleen Chalfant, Mary Testa, Donna Lynne Champlin, Jessica Grové, Rebecca Luker, Charlotte Maltby, Luba Mason, Theresa McCarthy, Betsy Morgan, Isabel Santiago and Carly Tamer.
