Spotlight On: Eric Taylor juggles his songs at Godfrey's

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 by CAMILLE CAPRIGLIONE Special to The Press in Focus

The songs of Eric Taylor, who is regarded as a lyrical genius and one of the finest songwriters of our time by contemporaries such as Lyle Lovett and Nanci Griffith, are narratives woven with insightful musings and intricate roots-inspired guitar playing.

With nine albums to date, culminating with his most recent release, "Studio 10" (Blue Ruby Records, 2013), Taylor has toured extensively in the United States and Europe, appeared on "The Late Show with David Letterman," won folk music awards, and held songwriting workshops in the U.S., England and Wales.

Tony-winning musical closes season at Civic Theatre

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 by The Press in Focus

Civic Theatre presents the finale to its 2013 - '14 main stage season with the irreverent, laugh-out-loud Tony-winning musical, "Urinetown," May 2, 3, 8 - 10, 15 - 18 with performances at 7 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, 8 p.m. Saturdays and 2 p.m. May 18, Nineteenth Street Theatre, 527 N. 19th St., Allentown.

"Urinetown," inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht, spares nothing with its irreverent humor and sharp wit.
