Adam's Call: Michael Feinstein's "Showstoppers" at Feinstein's/54 Below: Hits all the right notes and then some

Adam's Call: Two weeks ago I got to attend Michael Feinstein's "Showstoppers" at Feinstein's/54 Below. Michael hit all the right notes & then some! From the minute the orchestra started, I knew I was in for a special night. From his vocal quality to the way he connects to the audience, Michael defines showman. Whether it's a big band number or a gentler, quieter piano only song, Michael reels you in making you want more. Michael Feinstein's "Showstoppers" plays Feinstein's/54 Below through 9/3!

Adam's Call: The Government Inspector: Funniest Show Off-Broadway

Adam's Call: There are just four chances left to see, Red Bull Theater's "The Government Inspector," the funniest show Off-Broadway! I have seen this show twice and was doubled over in laughter both times. This show is truly an ensemble production! Everyone is given their moment to take the lead, but it's their combined talents that really make the laughter ensue! "The Government Inspector" plays at New World Stages NYC through 8/20 only!

Adam's Call: A Very Sordid Wedding: A Real Homecoming

Adam's Call: "A Very Sordid Wedding" Hands down the best part about this film was the way Del set it up. For those of us who were already fans of the "Sordid Lives" play/film/TV series, it's a real homecoming. For someone who has never seen anything "Sordid Lives," Del has perfectly outlined who everyone is, what their relationship is to one another, & a brief history of their storyline. Despite a few cast changes, everything I love about the "Sordid Lives" brand was still there!
Adam's Call: Marta Sanders' "Follow Me" at The Laurie Beechman Theatre is the epitome of cabaret! The evening flew by just like a plane taking off for it's next destination. With just 3 shows left, February 11, 16, & 25 at 7pm, I highly encourage you to get tickets for Marta Sanders' "Follow Me" at The Laurie Beechman Theatre because Marta is one performer you'll want to follow for years to come!

After 20 years on Broadway, "Chicago: The Musical" still has that fresh, exciting feeling! So, "Tap Dance" your way over to The Ambassador Theatre to take in this classic show!
Adam's Call: I recently took in the world premiere of "Yours Unfaithfully" starring Tony nominee Max von Essen. "Yours Unfaithfully" takes a look at the life of a couple in an open marriage and the after effects of this decision. It may have been written in 1933, but it stands the test of time, still holding court in today's world. "Yours Unfaithfully" raises many questions about love, monogamy, and relationships. "Yours Unfaithfully" plays at The Beckett Theatre thru 2/18 only!
Adam's Call: "The Bodyguard: The Musical" has found a way to make itself its own entity, while keeping all our favorite moments from the Oscar-nominated film that starred Whitney Houston & Kevin Costner. "The Bodyguard: The Musical" plays Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn NJ through January 1, 2017 before departing on its US Tour!
Adam's Call:Amy Marcs' "Nice T!ts" at The PIT Loft in NYC has it all...heart, laughter, and Barbie dolls! Amy painted the grim picture of breast cancer perfectly, while infusing a rainbow of colors from her genius performance skills. "Nice T!ts" never diminishes the seriousness of breast cancer, it just finds a way to make it a little easier to digest. "Nice T!ts" has just 3 performances left: Sunday, 10/16 at 4pm, Monday, 10/24 at 8pm, & Thursday, 10/27!
Adam's Call: Michael Raver's "Fire on Babylon": The Heat is On: Michael Raver is a rising playwright everyone should have their eye on! His new play, "Fire on Babylon," which is in the Fresh Fruit Festival, is HOT! In fact, it's scalding with twists & turns that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the whole play. With only two performances left (July 15th & 17th), I suggest you get there before the lights go out forever on this run! "Fire on Babylon" plays at The Wild Project in NYC's East Village!
Adam's Call: Charles Busch: "The Ultimate Playlist" at Feinstein's/54 Below: An Evening Filled with Laughter, Smiles, and a Walk Down Memory Lane. Charles has a way of captivating the audience with his stories. Whenever he tells a story, it feels as though we are seated in his living room around his fire place. I also enjoyed Charles' varied set list. This show made me so happy and I can't wait for Charles' next engagement at Feinstein's/54 Below!
Adam's Call: Latrice Royale: "Here's To Life": Celebration of Love, Life, and Second Chances: Latrice Royale's one woman show "Here's To Life," which is currently enjoying a return engagement at The Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC is definitely one of the best "one person" shows I have ever seen! I hope everyone reading this piece will rewrite their destiny and go see Latrice Royale's "Here's To Life" at The Laurie Beechman Theatre in NYC!
