Ode To Daggett Street

by Alexis Zanghi | Mar 27, 2015 12:00 pm | Comments (4)

Fake Babies Photo When I first came to Daggett Street Square in 2007, I was taken by its rambling hallways, its pulley-operated elevator. The building may not have been insulated, but it was insular. By that time, few live-work spaces remained in New Haven. There had been others — on River Street; in the Munniemaker cigar factory on State Street; at Chapel and Church, above what is now Gotham Citi—all now shut down.

Now we can add Daggett Street Square to the list: Last week officials ordered it cleared out.

It’s “Curtains” For Co-Op High

by Allan Appel | Mar 25, 2015 2:20 pm

Allan Appel Photo Nearly three dozen actors, 20 student musicians, 12 techies, and a new all-student dramaturgy team have created a murder board in the lobby of Co-op High.

A murder board is a good thing. It’s all part of the school’s presentation of Curtains, a charming play-within-a-play backstage murder mystery musical comedy, as its all-school spring show.

At Stetson, The Gloves Come Off

by Lucy Gellman | Mar 19, 2015 3:05 pm | Comments (2)

When ConnCAT founder Erik Clemons first heard selections from brownsville song (b-side for tray), he realized something very quickly: Even the smallest section of Kimber Lee’s masterfully true-to-life script lent itself to hours of discussions he was waiting to have.

The same was true for youth worker Steve Driffin, who immediately seized on the importance of sharing the play’s narrative — a young, precious and imperiled black life — with the New Haven community as necessary and therapeutic.

Williwaw and Wormser Blow Institute Library Away

by Allan Appel | Mar 12, 2015 4:21 pm | Comments (1)

Allan Appel Photo The williwaw — an icy, mountainous wind that literally drove some GIs crazy during the Aleutian campaign in World War II — made a chilling and beautiful appearance in both words and music, alongside the propulsive verses of nationally known poet Baron Wormser, in a haunting evening of poetry at the Institute Library.

Bad Jews, Worse Play

by Chris Arnott | Mar 9, 2015 1:29 am | Comments (6)

T. Charles Erickson Photo It may be time to call a moratorium on shouty dysfunctional family plays. This season so far the Yale Rep has given us Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ War and Dania Gurira’s Familiar. After the heartwarming season-opening fake-out of Our Town, Long Wharf Theater has presented Dael Orlandersmith’s Forever — which, though it’s a one-woman show, bristles with mother/daughter antagonisms. Now it’s putting on the current small-cast contemporary-setting darling of regional theaters nationwide, Joshua Harmon’s Bad Jews.

Humperdinck Resurfaces

by Mark Oppenheimer | Mar 4, 2015 4:46 pm

Before there was Engelbert Humperdinck, the super-lite English pop singer (sort of the Brits’ Wayne Newton), there was the man from whom he took his name, the great German opera composer Engelbert Humperdinck (1854–1921).
