There’s nothing like an opening night. Whether it’s the beginning of a Rolling Stones tour, playing with Bob Mintzer’s amazing big band for a week at the Blue Note in Tokyo or the start of a new Broadway show, Opening Night is electric. It’s been a little over a week now since the revival of Pippin opened on Broadway to rave reviews. Many critics have called it the best show of the season.
It has been an absolute delight being involved in this tremendous production, all the way from the brilliant direction of Diane Paulus, the exceptional cast — you won’t believe Andrea Martin(!!!), the superb creative music team lead by Nadia DiGiallonardo, orchestrator Larry Hochman and contractor John Miller, to our fantastical band conducted by the great Charlie Alterman. Tickets are already tough to come by, but if you’re in NYC and have the chance, check out this spectacular production. You’ll be glad you did!
