Brooklyn, the Depression — Coming of Age With Laughter and Tears; Theatre Intime Stages Neil Simon’s “Brighton Beach Memoirs”

Donald Gilpin

Neil Simon, over the past 50 years since Come Blow Your Horn (1961) hit Broadway, has been America’s most prolific and popular playwright. Barefoot in the Park (1963), The Odd Couple (1965), Biloxi Blues (1985), Broadway Bound (1986), Lost in Yonkers (1991) and about 30 more stage plays (most on Broadway), a Pulitzer Prize, three Tony Awards for Best Play, more than 20 screenplays — Mr. Simon’s new work was constantly on Broadway throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s. He slowed down a bit into the 90s and 2000s — He’s now 83 — but his best plays continue to be revived frequently all over the world.

Westminster Choir College’s Williamson Voices Show Mettle in Contemporary Choral Concert

Nancy Plum

The Westminster Williamson Voices of Westminster Choir College aims to be “a voice of composers of our time.” Conducted by James Jordan, the 40-voice vocal ensemble proved to be just that this past weekend in a concert centered on the music of contemporary composer James Whitbourn. In the performance recapturing repertoire from their recent debut in Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, the Williamson Voices demonstrated why, in less than 10 years, it has become one of the Choir College’s premiere choruses.
