Oklahoma!

When it comes to entertainment, I’m more of a sci-fi or action-adventure kind of girl. When it comes to enjoying life, if you have a new thing for me to try, chances are I won’t turn you down. Last night, at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival hosted by DeSales University, I had the chance to see a preview performance of Oklahoma!, the first musical written by the dynamic duo, Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Watching the Freddy's on TV

Last night was the 11th Annual Freddy Awards at the historic State Theatre in Easton. It’s one of the hottest tickets in town. I watched it, like most Lehigh Valley and now world-wide theatre fans, on television, although you could have streamed it online at WFMZ.com, too.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Freddy’s, they are the Tony’s of Lehigh Valley high school theatre. I, personally, both rue and lament the fact that I graduated high school, both not in Lehigh Valley and before the Freddy’s existed! Did I mention that it’s not just any plays that can get you a nomination? It has to be a musical! And every year we’re reminded that you don’t have to watch American Idol or the X-Factor for talent. Watch the Freddy’s and your TV will ooze talent.

An Evening with Groucho

I am a Marx Brothers fan. So being able to see An Evening with Groucho at Miller Symphony Hall this past Saturday night seemed like a blast. It was.

An Evening with Groucho is a show starring Frank Ferrante as Groucho, accompanied by pianist Jim Furmston. It starts when Jim comes onstage to play a Medley from the Marx Brothers Films. From there, hold onto your hat.

Philadelphia Dance Company

Earlier in the month, I had the chance to stop by Miller Symphony Hall in Allentown to catch a show. They may have recently changed their name (previously Allentown Symphony Hall), but the caliber of performances has remained.

After a pre-show drink at Cosmopolitan, I walked across the street to the theatre. The night I attended, the Koresh Dance Company was in town from Philadelphia. The performance was outstanding and was very well-received by the audience. Rather than a few full-length pieces, the company featured snippets of various works from their repertoire over the last 20 years. We were able to get a taste of many different styles, from fierce full-company pieces to emotional duets.

I can't wait to do these again

Everything old is new again and the “same old, same old” is not humdrum. Sometimes attractions and events that happen each year are the most fun Lehigh Valley things that I want to do again this coming year.

April 4th, 2013 is Opening Day for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Last season, our ‘Pigs fell short of replicating their playoff run of 2011, but they were in the hunt until the very end. Meaningful baseball down the stretch starts with a good April and I’ll be there again to cheer them on.

A Lehigh Valley Christmas

“New York may have the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, but Lehigh Valley has the annual A Lehigh Valley Christmas in Concert. The best part of this show is that it’s all home grown musicians assembled to officially begin the holiday season in Lehigh Valley.

I’ve been honored to be part of this show for nearly a decade now and to share the stage with the incredibly gifted Lehigh Valley musicians who deliver such a wide-range of diverse holiday music. Everyone needs to see this show at least one time!”
