Happily, that is not the case with the still-trenchant and thoroughly engaging revival of “Six Degrees of Separation.” Twenty-seven years ago, John Guare’s play was a […]

Eclectic Piano Man, Ebullient Tony-Winner

BY DAVID NOH | Classical pianist Simon Ghraichy returns to Carnegie Hall on October 14 with a concert entitled “My Hispanic Heritage.” The gay, toweringly tall, lean, multi-ethnic musician with a tumbleweed of hair made quite a visual impression when I interviewed him, but it was nothing compared to the impact when he sat down at […]

Yazbek & McClure

Yazbek & McClure

BY DAVID NOH | When I met my favorite living musical composer, David Yazbek, at the June 21 press preview at 54 Below for its upcoming shows, I threw a very unfamiliar name at him. “J.

De Jesus Rises

De Jesus Rises

BY DAVID NOH | Robin de Jesus is still in his 20s, but he is already a Broadway veteran, having literally grown up before our eyes since his big debut in the movie “Camp” in 2003. That film propelled him into an acting career and was followed by his taking over the role of Angel in […]

LuPone-itis

LuPone-itis

BY DAVID NOH | There can be little doubt that Patti LuPone is the current reigning Eminence of Broadway — and cabaret.
