A reader passes on from AtlasVet:

“It is with deep sadness that we inform you of the passing of an AtlasVet family member. Dr. Keith de la Cruz died suddenly and unexpectedly earlier this week. Dr. de la Cruz was with AtlasVet for almost 3 years. Prior to that he was part of the Caring Hands family of clinics. Dr. de la Cruz was a client and staff favorite, our moral and medical compass, and a compassionate and dedicated veterinarian. His wisdom made us smarter and his quirky, dry sense of humor picked us up. He was loved and will be terribly missed. (We will relay information about services as they become available.)”

From a press release:

” The Landless Theatre Company announces the return of it’s award-nominated Sweeney Todd Prog Metal Version at Atlas Performing Arts Center in July, 2015. The production garnered 2015 Helen Hayes Award Nominations for Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Director of a Musical (Melissa Baughman), and Outstanding Music Director (Charles W. Johnson).

Stephen Sondheim granted Landless permission to orchestrate the Progressive Metal Version of his musical masterpiece in December, 2013. “Yes, I did indeed give them my okay,” Mr. Sondheim was quoted in NY Times. “Since I believe that what keeps theater alive is its openness to reinterpretation from generation to generation, I look forward to seeing (and hearing) what they do.”

Mark E. Horowitz of The Sondheim Review wrote: “I was more than pleasantly prised to how well the new arrangements and orchestrations worked. They were particularly effective in the underscoring, by turns thrilling, funny and frightening… the range of colors available in the electronic instruments resulted in several hair-raising moments. This was also the fleetest production of Sweeney Todd I’ve seen, with many numbers seemingly performed at twice their typical tempos. I don’t know whether this was part of the prog metal aesthetic or a separate directorial choice, but it certainly energized aspects of the show.” (more…)
