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.)

One For My Baby workshop Oct 10-12


oneformybaby.com

As reported in Broadway World:
Tony Nominee Stephen Bogardus (Falsettos, Love! Valor! Compassion!) Luba Mason (Chicago, How to Succeed), Anastasia Barzee (Jekyll & Hyde, Miss Saigon) and 25 others have joined two-time Tony Nominee Vivian Reed (Bubbling Brown Sugar, Marie Christine) in the workshop cast of One for My Baby, the new book musical with a Harold Arlen score.

Bogardus plays the brusque business partner of Reed’s self-proclaimed “queen of the nightclubs,” Panama Jones, as they fight to preserve their post-World War II nightclub world that is threatened by underworld figures and the changing habits of high society.

Mason takes on the role of a glamorous society woman trapped in a romantic triangle that includes her new infatuation, played by Damon Kirsche (Encores! Ziegfeld Follies of 1936, Strike Up the Band), and her devious best friend, played by Barzee.

Broadway performers Jennifer Cody (Shrek, The Pajama Game, Grease), Robert Hartwell (Nice Work if You Can Get It), Todd Lawson (Summer and Smoke), Matt Loehr (Movin’ Out, Mary Poppins), Jenelle Lynn Randall (All Shook Up), Michael Scott (110 in the Shade, Follies) and Julie Tolivar (Curtains, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) fill out the principal parts.
