In fact Cusack, who earned a Tony nomination for her Broadway debut in this production, seems lit from within throughout the show. She elevates this effervescent piece, adding depth to sometimes flat lyrics and burnishing every melody to a fine sheen with her delicate twang. The actress also magically transforms from the giddiness of youth to the stiffness of middle age with a simple fluttering change of dress. The musical dances back and forth in time so we meet the older Alice, sharper than ever but also bruised by life, before the younger one. She has become the hard-nosed editor of a Southern literary magazine. There she encounters Billy Cane (A.J. Shively), a fresh-faced GI just back from World War II, eager to become a writer. They turn out to have a bond that goes beyond a love of fiction.

For him, musical theater should try to rise above mere commercial concerns. “You can’t be doing it for the dollars, you have to be doing it because you believe in it deeply,” he says. “People always say I make musicals for people who hate musicals and there is some truth to that. I see them as serious pieces of theater.”. “Ain’t Too Proud” traces The Temptations’ path from a church choir in Birmingham, Ala., where Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams first met, to the glory days of Motown. The pair eventually moved to Detroit and merged with another band, forming the Temptations. When David Ruffin joined the mix, the era of the “Classic Five” was officially launched, producing a string of hits including “My Girl,” “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” “My Baby,” “Just My Imagination,” “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” and the title song “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg.”.
Musical director Katie Coleman and her 10-piece orchestra are set on a divided stairway that recreates a 1920s-era nightclub, Coleman pounds on her keyboard, original art, oil painting "noelle en point" city life, shoes, dancer, girls, ballerina, ballet shoes, wall decor, pin back to the audience, and wrings some explosive melodies out of Kander’s great score, The set alone is worth the price of admission — no, really, Players Artistic Director Patrick Klein designed it, with Jenny Cote as technical director and Paulino Deleal getting credit as scenic artist, Kudos to whoever dreamed up the opening moments when nine screens show a Chicago street scene, which morph into a series of silent movie scenes that also include the usual pre-show announcements to “Turn off your cellphones,” etc..
“We played Coachella yesterday,” Sim said of the mammoth Southern California music festival. “We were so far away from people, we couldn’t really see them. “It’s nice to see people’s faces.”. The band kicked off the 19-song concert with the moody, vulnerable “Say Something Loving,” one of eight offerings from The xx’s third and latest full-length album, “I See You.” The group then moved seamlessly into the breathy, percussive gem “Crystalised,” a standout from the Mercury Prize-winning debut “xx” (2009).
