The Reviews for Cabaret are In…

April 25, 2014 // 0 Comments

Cabaret has opened in Studio 54, and while the decadent, pre-World War II, night club musical is enjoyed highly by all, most critics needed to pinch themselves to make sure they hadn’t traveled back in time to 1998.  The Roundabout Theater Company production that won such praise the first time around is back and almost entirely unchanged — if [...]

The Reviews for Hedwig and the Angry Inch are In…

April 23, 2014 // 1 Comment

And now for something completely different!  The reviewers give the Broadway premier of Hedwig and the Angry Inch two emphatic rock ‘n roll horns and one long, outstretched Gene Simmons tongue.  Neil Patrick Harris owns the central role in this hard rock musical about the gender-mysterious lead singer of a German rock band.  His charisma, [...]

The Reviews for Violet are in…

April 22, 2014 // 0 Comments

The reviews are in, and the critics love Violet and Sutton Foster, version 2.0.  In many ways, Violet and Ms. Foster is an unlikely pair — a deeply emotional musical about a farm girl with a disfigured face doesn’t typically call for a twirling, big-grin, big-Broadway star.  In this story, though, Ms. Foster reveals an ability to capture her [...]

The Reviews for Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill are In…

April 14, 2014 // 0 Comments

Few shows garner overwhelming critical applause like Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill, and few performers command undeniable respect and admiration like Audra McDonald.  The musical, now playing at Circle in the Square, shows Billie Holiday (McDonald) in a fictional final concert near the end of her hard-fought, tiresome life.  The glory of this [...]

The Reviews for Bullets Over Broadway are In…

April 11, 2014 // 0 Comments

Well, the critics are in agreement about Bullets Over Broadway, but it’s not the consensus that anyone may have expected. Despite the script by Woody Allen and the formidable direction/choreography by Susan Stroman, the would-be comedy musical, based on the 1994 Woody Allen film of the same name, just isn’t funny.  Sure, they say Zach Braff is [...]
