Compagnie Marie Chouinard at Wesleyan University Oct 8, 2008

Orpheus and Eurydice played at Wesleyan a few weeks ago, and here's some of the things folks had to say about the show: "This is just to let you know how much I enjoyed Orpheus and Eurydice. Extraordinary! Difficult to categorize. Totally original. Perhaps: Aubrey Beardsley meets Euripides meets Breugel the Elder meets Antonin Artaud meets Laurel and Hardy meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest..." Michael, Middletown CT "I thought it was absolutely great. Entertaining, funny, beautiful.

Don't Miss This Show Oct 3, 2008

This show is a tour de magical necessity. Slight of hand used not for deception but as a gentle "please don't assume anything thank you I love you i love you."

Holcombe Waller @ OtB Oct 3, 2008

I don’t think that the owner of the statement Holcombe Waller is  “the missing link between Jeff Buckley and George Michael ” could be more wrong and I couldn’t be happier.   I was almost driven away by that press.   1/1000 of the time there was a slight vocal inflection that might be compared to George Michael, in timbre alone.     Thank god he doesn’t sound anything like Jeff Buckley, nor is he trying to, unlike every other young male hipster, shoe gazing Jeff Buckley rip-off.   It is such a tragedy that Jeff Buckley has becom

Holcombe Waller | An Evening in a New Home Oct 3, 2008

...or an old home. This show gave me both feelings. Holcombe Waller did his theatrical-musician thing tonight at On the Boards, and even though I've been to OtB may times, and Waller and his team are only here for the weekend, I found myself feeling more like a guest in his world.
