Surviving Love

As Robert Chionis says in "Surviving Love," "It takes a lot of great songs to make a life." That statement is also true for a show. "It takes a lot of great songs to make a show," which very well describes "Surviving Love," a new musical by Robert Chionis which I saw on July 20, 2011 in the Midtown International Theatre Festival.

Featuring songs by Brian Lasser, William Finn, Ricky Ian Gordon, Ben Moody, Amy Lee, & David Hodges, Adam Guettel, Charles Strouse and Stephen Schwartz, "Surviving Love" is about an isolated gay youth from Nowhere, USA who moves to the big city and finds love in the onset of the AIDS epidemic. Robert has put together a great book and mixture of Broadway songwriters and classical composers to bring this show together. From the moment Robert sings, his stellar vocals make his operatic training evident. Robert's big voice raises the roof up to the stratosphere.

"Surviving Love" is being presented during a very timely moment in our history, the 30th anniversary of the "discovery of AIDS. This show helps remind of us of the onset, how far we've come, and yet how far we still have to go. "Surviving Love" has a fresh take on a story you think you've heard before, but haven't. Robert has given a new voice to a topical subject.

With just 2 performances left: July 23 at 5pm and July 24 at 12pm, "Surviving Love" is a show to go see. It plays at the Main Stage Theatre (312 West 36th Street, between 8th & 9th Avenue, on the 4th floor).

-luxury Gucci JewelleryIn the US, dating is very commonplace among both seniors and juniors. While in some cases, dating helps to find your ultimate match, it can occasionally just be a way of socialization. If you are a senior, and planning to date once again after a reasonably long time, it can leave you perturbed. This may also be the case if it's your first date.

Robert Chionis is totally right, and we actually know it, but prefer to ignore the issue and try to look like ignorants... when we also know is simply impossible.

It is impressive how a soundtrack can make the difference and it can improve a lot the impression that people have about the movie or even games. It is impressive how it can change an ad like Buy Viagra
