Carbonell Nomination! 

Lindsay Bell was nominated for Best Choreography for her work in The Drowsy Chaperone at The Wick Theatre and Costume Museum!

"Lindsay Bell’s vibrant choreography, executed with flair, would make original Brigadoon choreographer Agnes De Mille proud." - Aaron Krause

"But the unsung heroine of the production is Lindsay Bell’s choreography. Brigadoon followed close on Agnes DeMille’s acclaimed work on Oklahoma and Carousel, both of which featured a character-revealing ballet. So the producers gave DeMille free rein to create in this show, dances that were evocative but would seem a bit too prolific for a 21st Century audience that just wants to narrative drive to carry on.

 

But Bell, a dancer who stands out in any ensemble, is equal to the challenge with frequent interludes of spirited faux folk dancing melded with ballet moves, lifts and Broadway chorus line tropes. Her two finest moments are when dancers Steven Del Col and Daniella Tamasi stand in for Charlie and Jean separated before their wedding singing of their love in the lilting “Come to Me, Bend to Me.” The second is an Martha Graham-like solo exquisitely executed by Elizabeth Troxler as Maggie who mourns his death. No matter the rest of the season, go to the bank that Bell will have a Carbonell nomination a year hence."

More Than One Kind of Miracle: The Wick’s Lovely Brigadoon

"...choreographed with exultant beauty by Lindsay Bell" - Christine Dolen
                              Sun-Sentinel

...the explosive execution by the Newsies’ ensemble was exemplary for its energy, enthusiasm and passion. It might not be fair to single out one person in that ensemble but Lindsay Bell, who has also been choreographing local shows as well, simply glows with her exuberance and knife-sharp movement while she stays in character and acts throughout.

"Fiddlehead's West Side Story...."

 

"The Jet's fire up at the dance, however, and the 'Dance at the Gym' offers some of the best choreography of the show. The dance is clean, exciting, and motivated and driven by the story and characters, with a stellar dance performance by Lindsay Bell's Graziella, Riff's girlfriend."

"Another highlight was the 15-minute dream ballet that Joerder choreographed based on Agnes de Mille’s original work. Depicting Laurey wrestling with her dilemma while asleep, the ballet involves the entire ensemble but features a fine Tommy Joscelyn as the Dream Curley and the always wonderful Lindsay Bell as the Dream Laurey.  Bell’s assured fluid grace and her acting while she is dancing here, in the recent Swing! and other shows makes her stand out even in a chorus line."

"Wick’s Swing Is A High-Flying Enthusiastic Celebration Of Big Band Era’s Music And Dance"

 

"The lovely Lindsay Bell and knife-sharp Charles South are paired off in some of most outstanding moments of the show, but never better than in an elegant delicate pas de deux that melds en pointe ballet with modern dance in 'I’ll Be Seeing You.'”

"Concert Staging of 'Zorba!' innovative"

 

"...Cholerton also has hit on a wonderful narrative device to drive the storytelling. A voiceless character, a dancer (Lindsay Bell, who is also the production’s talented choreographer) guides Nikos and the audience through the chronological and emotional journey of the story. In less capable hands, this approach could be waterlogged in movement clichés, but Bell imbues this assignment with emotional intention and nuance."
