March 7 – 27, 2016

 

“Elijah Howard: Serendipity” standup comedy routine is quite fresh and up to date.  Mark Anthony Ramirez opens up for Elijah, and he brings the audience into his own world as a father with real life scenarios about his children as to how expensive it is to care for them.  The audience holds on to each word from his mouth as a cautionary tale to parenthood in a very funny way.

 

After Elijah takes over from Mark, he takes the comedy up to another level.  No one was safe in his repertoire of salacious jokes, and the audience gets a belly full of laughs from the beginning to the end.  Elijah lets the audience know what he thinks is the driving force on television in advertising, and the audience thinks that this thing has been the weapon of choice since the beginning of times.

“Vickie Phillips: A Carousel of Colors with Brel, Weill, and Aznavour” written by Vickie Phillips and Bob Ost, directed by Bob Ost, music director Gerry Dieffenbach, and starring Vickie Phillips.

 

Vickie delivers an outstanding performance to a diverse audience with whom she shares the backstory behind the life of each composer.  She educates the audience with the medley of Kurt Weill’s songs that resonates highly with the piano accompaniment.  Her rendition of songs composed by Brel takes the audience into a world that was seen only through his vision.  He traveled from the darkness into light.

 

The song ‘Sailor Boys’ composed by Aznavour takes the audience into a nostalgic mood.  Its interpretation highlights a broader picture that has consequences beyond borders mostly for women and children.  Vickie tells the audience about her quest to get Aznavour’s permission in order to sing his song.

 

After her performance, Vickie thanks John Chatterton, the executive producer of the Midtown International Theatre Festival, Gerry Dieffenbach, and others before she leaves the stage.
