Old Hats

Old Hats is playing at the Signature Theatre located at 480 West 42nd Street. It runs two hours with one intermission. The show closes on March 6, 2016.

Old hats premiered at the Signature Theatre in 2013.

Bill Irwin won a Tony Award for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf in 2005.

Clown One (Bill Irwin) and Clown Two (David Shiner) are moving from the elements that are appearing from behind them. Lighting and other forces of nature are there. All of a sudden it stops. Each one has a remote control with antennas on them and each one is trying to turn it back on and of course it shuts off. They end up having a fight with the remote control. While they are fighting Shaina Taub is walking across the aisle talking on her phone, the others behind her to each other. They sit on the left side of the stage in front of the instruments they will play. Shaina sits down in front of the piano. She tells clown one she will start playing when she is finished talking on her cell phone.

The show alternates between the clowns and Shaina. The songs she sings are different. You think she is going to say one thing but she says something else.

For each act there is a billboard to the right of the stage that tells the name of the act.

This is a hilarious show. It’s is not a play but a vaudeville acts. No words are said. They do hat tricks, magic act and other silly things.

Bill Irwin and David Shiner movements are amazing. They make it look so graceful. Both are so flexible, as if they were made of rubber.

This is an entertaining show. Don’t miss it.

Broadway & The Bard

Broadway and The Bard is playing at the Lion Theatre located at 410 West 42nd Street. It runs eighty minutes with no intermission. The show closes on March 6, 2016.

The show stars Len Cariou. He won a Tony Award and Drama Desk Award in 1979 for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barbour of Fleet Street. He was nominated for a Tony Award for Applause in 1976 and A Little Night’s Music in 1973.

Len is now appearing in the television series Blue Bloods. He also was in the television series Murder She Wrote. In 2004 he was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.

The show opens with Orsino from”Twelfth Night” Act I scene I. Which follows with “Love, I Hear” by Stephen Sonheim /”Falling in Love” by Richard Rogers and Lorenz Hart.

There are ten more scenes from Shakespeare followed by songs that are related to the scene. At the end of each skit Len tells you who wrote the song and if it is from a musical, which one it is.

The pianist is Mark Janas. Occasionally he will sing a line or two from the song Len is singing.

This is a delightful show. A little of the Bard and variety of wonderful songs.

Who knew Shakespeare could be so grand!

Len Cariou did an incredible job. Mark Janas played the ivories with such rapture.
