    By David Mermelstein

    June 1, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Many young girls dream of a life on the stage, but few could have envisioned the career now enjoyed by Hila Plitmann, a Jerusalem-born soprano who these days makes her home in Studio City. Plitmann, 32, is not famous in the way that, say, sopranos like Renée Fleming, Deborah Voigt...

    May 25, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    It'll be nostalgia time at the Ford Amphitheatre when Harold Arlen's greatest tunes come alive again for the concert "The Wonderful Wizard of Song."

    The show's title is a not-so-subtle allusion to "The Wizard of Oz," which featured Arlen's Oscar-winning hit, "Over the Rainbow."

  • Tommywood - A Peace of Music

    By Tom Teicholz

    How does an idea come to life? How is it that someone has an idea -- an idea that he or she believes will help change the world -- and it actually takes flight? I'm not sure anyone really knows how that process occurs, only that it does.

    Just ask Zade.

    Here's a strange coincidence: Both my doctor and my rabbi share the same leisure pursuit: They are passionate about attending rock concerts. U2, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen -- If they perform, my good doctors of the body and the soul will attend. They both say it's their...

    The Rolling Stones have done it. Cher has done it.

    The comeback -- that big farewell concert tour followed by a reunion and a new album -- is about as American as apple pie.

    It's not unheard of in Israel, either. While solo artists like Arik Einstein, Shlomo Artzi, Shalom Hanoch...

  • Hip Cynics for Export

    By Amy Klein

    April 6, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    In Israel, no one wants to be a friar -- a sucker, a patsy, a flunky, a tool.

    It's the Israeli equivalent of the Chinese never wanting to lose face. And in Israel, this primary motivation explains much of the country's machismo -- and perhaps even its political situation.

    Yet who...

    On a dark spotlight-lit stage, a man in a long, black suit; yarmulke; and tallit slung over one shoulder fervently sings into a microphone, while a dance troupe in similar -- but sexier -- garb twirls behind him.

    He's not a cantor. He's not a rabbi. He's not even religious. He is...
