Yesterday, everyone knew The Beatles. Today, only Jack remembers their songs. He’s about to become a very big deal. From Academy Award®-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later) and Richard Curtis, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually and Notting Hill, comes a rock-n-roll comedy about music, dreams, friendship, and the long and winding road that leads to the love of your life.

Jack Malik (Himesh Patel, BBC’s Eastenders) is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie (Lily James, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again). Then, after a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed … and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed.

The Howard ~ A Hartt School Memory – “ The Rhythm of U.S. by Emma Krishnaswami

 

Howard Steven Frydman
The Hartt School
The Rhythm of U.S.


I just witnessed a spectacular student produced production-“The Rhythm of U.S.” – 

An Emma Krishnaswami Invitation: In mid-April I received an unexpected and welcome email invitation from Miss Emma inviting me to “a show that I have spent 7 months planning and the entire semester directing. It is called “The Rhythm of U.S.” ” –  a collaborative project created by University of Hartford students, co-written and directed by the one and only Emma Krishnaswami.

Howard Steven Frydman, Emma Krishnaswami.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The production features an original piece by Connecticut’s next Mark Twain, famed playwright and friend Jacques Lamarre, plus up and coming student playwright Sam Seleznow. Hartt Student performers include: Scott Burrows, Pedro Fontes, Genevieve Hendrix, Quiana Leigh, Voni Kengla, Arianna Ortmann, Alex Robertson and Mr. Matthew Werner. Of course I’m excepting Emma’s kind Invitation- my first live production in months since the “Big H-Cut” – nothing short of an April blizzard would stop me from seeing this student production. Hartt here I come!!

With Cane in Hand- I make my way slowly to The Handel Performing Arts Center, Studio N125. There is so much creative energy emanating from this room it could light the lights on Broadway. I’m greeted by old friends including, Robert H. Davis, Hartt Professor of Theatre in Acting and Voice & Speech, and my singular choice to take over the role of Ebenezer Scrooge in The Hartford Stage’s annual production “A Christmas Carol”- (are you hearing me Mike Stotts!!), as previous mentioned, my old pal, the legendary playwright and all around “good guy” Jacques Lamarre, and then a whirlwind of a gal approaches me – “are you Howard?” – I reply- “are you Emma”? – I promptly receive a heart healing hug from the one and only Miss Emma Krishnaswami. I could cry!

Jacques Lamarre, Emma Krishnaswami. Howard Steven Frydman

Howard Steven Frydman, Robert H. Davis

Miss Emma’s Production: “The Rhythm of U.S.”, a series of short acting pieces, explores different political issues – women’s rights, LGBTQ issues, the refugee crisis, and anti-semitism. Issues that I personally must state that have been brought “front forward” by a “Enfant Terrible’s trumpeted rage and reign.

According to Emma, “While the production represents different races, genders, cultures and sexualities, the show also unites performers and audience in a commonality we all share: humans trying to live together in America”.
The pieces in this one hour production include; “Bottom of the River”; “Yearning to Breathe Free”, Jacques Lamarre’s “Gaybraham Lincoln”, “Amazing Grace” and the thought provoking “Sunday In The Park with Anne” – Anne being the ghost of “Anne Frank”- told in three parts-and utilizing various “diary” selections. Anne is the illusion of “hemp happy” Jonah as they discuss anti-semitism then and now. A powerful emotional “triptych” that could be made more emotional if the ending was heightened with an unexpected twist- that Jonah is also a Ghost- a victim of someone’s hateful antisemitic rage. Only a suggestion!
I look forward to seeing this splendidly conceived production augmented by additional pieces and produced at other theaters! Great job all!

 

A Questionable Mr. Howard: Several questions that I put forward to Miss Em.

What was the hardest part of putting this production together?
“This process had many difficulties, but I think I was well prepared for each of them with the amount of experience and training I have had in theatre on and off stage. I’d say one of the biggest struggles was coordinating all of the students’ rigorous schedules with my schedule and the availability of rehearsal space. I remember spending full days coming up with the rehearsal schedule for the next 2 weeks. Sometimes we would be in the depths of a rehearsal and we would get kicked out because there was a class. Going into the project, I also knew I had to accept the fact that people may drop out, people may forget about rehearsal or may have to cancel coming to one at the last minute”.

What did you learn?
“Ooooh many many things. One of the most important things I learned was what I am capable of and that I should trust myself. I went in with a lot of self-doubt about my abilities to see the fine points in real moments, which I think are essential to making a piece of theatre believable and relatable. But as the process continued I learned that I had a very good sense of these moments and could actually guide actors in a helpful way. It was always magical when I would adjust something and suddenly the moment came to life. I also learned that I have gained enough acting, stage management, technical, and leadership experience over the years to properly plan the birth process of a show in a timely fashion. I learned to have much more confidence in what I know. I learned that I am a director as much as I am an actor”.

“I also learned that all those years of being taught and directed really did teach me how to get the best work out of actors. In order to create real, relatable theatre you must be willing to let the actors be artists and trust them. Make them comfortable, treat them as equals rather than lesser, and make sure they feel validated in their contributions so that they are inspired to continue contributing.”

“I also learned that actors really need to eat if you want to have productive rehearsals. One weekend we had an 8am and no one had eaten because the dining halls weren’t open that early and people were so slow and cranky. The next weekend I brought food and people were much more lively. The contrast was night and day. Literally.”

Why did you put this project together- was this your concept?
“This project was very much my concept. Prior to the election of Trump, I came up with the idea to tell the Syrian refugee story. I realized I had not paid much attention to this horrible crisis across the sea and that I was one of millions who didn’t bat an eye at it. This had to stop because if it were me over there it would make no sense to me how my world could be falling apart, but there are people out there who still have perfect lives and refuse to help. This bothered me on a deep level. Looking back now, I am not sure how I would have accomplished this. Then the election of Trump occurred and I realized our citizens needed something encouraging, something uniting, but being a student in college it was difficult to feel like I could do anything to bring about change. I saw this show as an opportunity to help. I still wanted to shed light on the refugee crisis, but also on other communities and groups that were negatively influenced by this election.”

Is this your senior Project- how many students were involved-are they all Hartt seniors?

“This is my senior project. There were 12 students involved altogether. 8 actors, 1 student writer, 1 director/writer, 1 music director, 1 dramaturge. The only seniors were Sam Seleznow (“Sunday in the Park with Anne” playwright) and me. All the actors were freshmen and sophomores. Our music director, Danny Brown, was also a sophomore.”

Btw- what was your grade?

“This was actually something I chose to do on my own, not as an assignment, so I have not been graded on this. I am thinking of talking to my advisor about getting credit for it, but I am not sure.”

From Heart to Hartt: It’s a simply amazing serendipitous road on how I was invited to participate in seeing Emma’s theatrical vision. Thank you Emma Krishnaswami! “Thank god for the arts”- and thank our lucky stars for the staff and rising star talents at The Hartt School.

 

I have said it once and I will say it again – these students- these young men and woman at Hartt definitely have wonderful hearts – and here’s my tale and how it led to my visit to see the production of “The Rhythm of U.S.” And its all true- cross my heart!!

A good cast is worth repeating ( Universal Pictures) -all actors enjoy seeing their names not only in lights- but in print- so I am honored to list those participants here again now- Scott Burrows, Pedro Fontes, Genevieve Hendrix, Quiana Leigh, Voni Kengla, Arianna Ortmann, Alex Robertson and Mr. Matthew Werner.

And look out world – Here Comes Emma Krishnaswami! Oh and by the way- Stay off Motorcycles young lady!!!!

The Howard ~ Theater Reviews – The Goodspeed presents “Meredith Willson’s The Music Man”

 

Theater Review by Howard Steven Frydman
Production:                      Meredith Willson’s The Music Man
Theater:                            The Goodspeed
Book, Music & Lyrics:    Meredith Willson
Director:                           Jenn Thompson

It’s great, it’s glorious, it’s Goodspeed !

And so the summer of ‘19 begins…if you are a musical newbie or even a Broadway aficionado – for a sparkling, “Seventy-Six Trombones” of a good time, I strongly suggest you begin your summer with a sojourn to the Goodspeed Opera House, as they launch their season with “Meredith Willson’s The Music Man” starring Edward Watts as that most beguiling Professor Harold Hill and directed by the “oh so” gifted and visionary Jenn Thompson.

In the world of iconic and honored musical productions, one must agree that “The Music Man” and its character of Professor Harold Hill would head up anyone’s roster part and parcel of the best of Broadway – winning five Tony Awards including Best Musical. In fact, The Music Man was the absolutely first musical as a youth that I ever saw performed on a live stage, and I so vividly remember meeting the legendary musical star John Raitt who was portraying Hill at the time. It was a memorizing event, and ever after – as they say, I was hooked on Broadway musicals.

The Music Man

Since it’s opening in 1957 at the Majestic Theater on Broadway, staring “Hill” originator- the one – the only “The Professor” – Robert Preston, theaters goers have been raving for generations over this grifter, con-man and flim flamer – oh my!!! For you newbies – here is the un-frittered, rebuckled knickerbockers below the knee, Captain Billy’s Whiz Bang tale about Trouble with a capital “T” that rhymes with “P” that takes place right here in 1912 River City, Iowa.

The grifter as you can already surmise is the charismatic Professor Harold Hill, (Edward Watts) who originally sold/scammed folks selling steam powered automobiles, until someone actually invented them. His new scam- posing as a Music Professor and promising gullible parents that he will form and ultimately train a River City Boys Band  – “think Beethoven’s Minuet In G”, all the while selling musical instruments and band uniforms, yet planning to flee as soon as he can scam as much money from the town folks. Into the mix, Harold’s old friend Marcellus Washburn, (Juson Williams), who has gone legit, but warns his pal “Gregory” that the straight laced Librarian and Music Teacher, Miss Marian Paroo (Ellie Fishman) may be the one big threat to his boy band ploy.

Folks – as many of you already know – I so literally enjoy leaving a musical production humming, whistling, snapping my fingers as I relive memorable scores. Being that this is a classic musical – you are indeed in “harmonizing heaven” here with such memorable songs including; “Ya Got Trouble”, “Goodnight My Someone”, “The Sadder-But-Wiser Girl,” “Marian the Librarian,” “Shipoopi,”,  “Till There Was You,” and those duo rousing crowd pleasers – “Seventy-six Trombones” and “The Wells Fargo Wagon”.

The hallmark of any Goodspeed musical comes down to three criteria- their vibrant production,  production, and more production- the sets, dancing, costumes, lights and of course first class actors who are performing and providing us a grand and oh so impressive stage experience. Music Man indulges all our senses with such great favor, that we give a humble bow and kudos to all, especially Director Jenn Thompson, Jenn Thompson,  Jenn Thompson – say it softly it’s almost like praying- (sorry wrong musical this is not “West Side Story”) but we must truly recognize her praiseworthy visionary contribution in making this production so memorable and a not to be missed theatrical event.

As for our performers, Edward Watts as the “Professor” shows tremendous power and range, many of us so rightfully can only think of the incomparable Robert Preston when it comes to Music Man, but when Edward takes on the extensive “Ya Got Trouble” in the first act, we nod appreciatively, sit back and savor his interpretation. We also must state that Ellie Fishman in her portrayal of River City Librarian Marian Paroo has a “voice” – an exquisite singing voice, clear and stirring, not to be missed – we so enjoyed her vocals in “Goodnight My Someone,”.

Ellie Fishman (Marion), Amelia White (Mrs. Paroo) and Alexander O’Brien (Winthrop) in Goodspeed Musicals’ The Music Man, playing now through June 20 at The Goodspeed.

We wish we could single out everyone in this huge cast of 39 – let me state you are all impressive in your respective roles. We do want to present two coveted “The Howard” Noticed You Awards, firstly to Juson Williams as Marcellus Washburn, what stage presence, and so enjoyable in “Shipoopi”, and to Miss Amelia White as the widowed Mrs. Paroo, she reminds one of that great comedian Pert Kelton. All eyes are on both Amelia White and Juson William whenever they appear on stage, they both added greatly to our enjoyment of this production.

Juson Williams starring in The Music Man

Well friends, we have to state that “The Music Man” – it’s terrific with a capitol “T”  and that rhymes with with “G” and that stands for Goodspeed. Indeed the Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam is starting their season with a rousing classic musical celebration that I strongly urge you not to miss. Enjoy!

“Meredith Willson’s The Music Man” will run April 12th through June 20th, 2019. Curtain times are Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Thursday at 7:30 p.m. (with select performances at 2:00 p.m.), Friday at 8:00 p.m., Saturday at 3:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. (with select performances at 6:30 p.m.).
