‘Bandstand’ Broadway Review: Dance, Soldiers, Dance! Singing Is Another Story

1 hour ago

It has not been a spectacular season for dance on Broadway — until now. A year ago, Andy Blankenbuehler won the Tony Award for choreographing “Hamilton,” against such stiff competition as Savion Glover and his superb work on “Shuffle Along.” This year, there’s almost no competition for Blankenbuehler’s arresting choreography in the new musical “Bandstand,” which opened Wednesday at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Set in post-World War II America, the show almost never stops dancing, and when it does Blankenbuehler keeps the motion going with a few steps here, a few steps there, that in a later scene will. »

‘Manifesto’ Review: Cate Blanchett Is Every Woman in Trippy Art Piece

6 hours ago

Cate Blanchett practically eats the camera lens in “Manifesto,” a feature by artist Julian Rosefeldt that began life as an installation at the Park Avenue Armory show in Manhattan. Blanchett plays 13 separate characters who deliver various manifestos, and these reach from Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels preaching on economics in the mid-19th century to rules for filmmaking delivered by director Jim Jarmusch in 2004. The surprise here is that Rosefeldt has managed to deliver an intellectually-charged, cheeky, and very funny film that feels unruly and expansive in spite of its tight 12-day shooting schedule and its focus on just one. »
