Nancy Opel Talks About "Curvy Widow"


What does a single woman “of a certain age” need most? Not so fast! The answer may not be the obvious—at least, that’s the premise of “Curvy Widow,” Bobby Goldman’s autobiographical musical play, at George Street Playhouse in New Brunswick from May 2 through May 21. Highly-regarded singing actress Nancy Opel appears in the title role. ...

BobFest: Songs of War & Peace
Ever since 1997, Pat Guadagno has been celebrating Bob Dylan’s birthday in a grand way with BobFest. The show returns to the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank on May 25 with this year’s theme: Songs Of War & Peace. In honor of the holiday, Jersey Mike’s is providing tickets for any veterans who wish to see the show.
Hit Her With The Skates

“It was a time when we had our differences, but when it all came down to it you got out on that floor, whether it be the dance floor or the roller rink floor, and all of the difference melted away and we’d just come together and have fun,” said Christine Rea, who wrote Hit Her with the Skates with her husband Rick Briskin.
Bruber

Ever wonder what life is like in the life of an Uber driver? Vincent Brue and his wife Eve take you behind-the-scenes at the crazy characters that come in and out of Vincent’s Prius in the web series, Bruber.
Catching Up With Victoria Williams

For many music fans in the 90s, Victoria Williams was their introduction to Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The Louisiana born Williams was a rising star in the indie world, touring as the opening act for Neil Young when she first began having neurological problems. Faced with a sudden bout of medical bills and without health insurance, 14 artists including Pearl Jam, Soul Asylum, Lou Reed, and The Waterboys covered songs written by Williams on a tribute album entitled “Sweet Relief: A Benefit For Victoria Williams.” The album did so well that it led to the creation of the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, an organization that aids musicians with their medical bills.
Theatre Preview: May 2017

Each month, New Jersey Stage presents a preview of plays coming to the area in our monthly magazine. We have 16 shows this month in our preview, but two are closing at the end of April.
REVIEW: The Lost City of Z

Your attitude to filmmaker James Gray probably depends on your geographical location. The French adore him, Americans are ambivalent, and in the UK and Ireland we barely know he exists, as his movies barely get released here (we’ve given up on a release of The Immigrant at this point). I’ve been largely unimpressed by his CV so far (though I’ve yet to see The Immigrant and may have to fork out for an import disc now), but his latest, The Lost City of Z had the same effect on me as Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood, a lauded filmmaker’s work finally clicking with my sensibilities.

Featured Music Video: "Bones" by Fairmont

This month's featured music video is "Bones" by Fairmont.
Sights and Sounds of Note: April 2017

No fooling - we received a record number of submissions at the office this month. So many of them were good but only a select few have risen to the top. Like choice treats in a basket these are the best and most interesting of the batch - let’s take a peep!
REVIEW: Free Fire

After delivering one of 2016’s most disappointing releases - his adaptation of JG Ballard’s High-Rise - director Ben Wheatley makes a quick return with an equally ambitious project. But while Free Fire is an improvement on his treatment of Ballard, it’s yet another case of Wheatley biting off more than he can chew.
Ambitious Theatre At Paper Mill

Long before Paper Mill Playhouse received the 2016 Regional Theatre Tony Award, the theatre had been begun known as a place where shows heading to Broadway could be found first. The 2017-2018 season will continue that trend in a big way with 2 World Premieres and 2 East Coast Premieres on the schedule. While much of the buzz deals with Half Time, I’m excited to see what they do with The Honeymooners musical comedy.
INSIDE MUSIC: There’s Music in Everything!

Say I’m crazy, but my kitchen can opener whirrs to Bb and might change pitches with each new can. My Betty Crocker blender is a more independent and versatile player in that it whirrs in several keys. My Epson printer emits vocal tones and word phrases with each new document it prints. And don’t get me started on my auto windshield wipers which have kept me in the creative flow as well as the traffic flow through many long rides home from gigs.
Recap Of Zebra at Newton Theatre

(NEWTON, NJ) -- The hard-rock power-trio Zebra played at The Newton Theatre on April 14 as part of their 2017 tour and delivered a performance that showcased why they’ve amassed such a loyal following. Playing for just under two hours, Zebra’s set covered all ground, from the contemplative acoustic Who’s Behind The Door to heavy rockers such as Wait Until The Summer’s Gone.
