The Reviews for ALLEGIANCE are In…

November 9, 2015 // 0 Comments

The reviews for Allegiance are in, and though the ambitious mission of the new musical is universally admired, the execution is, unfortunately, not.  The sweeping tale is inspired by the memories of George Takei (the ever-loved Star Trek idol) and lends personal perspective to the shameful period of Japanese-American internment in World War II.  On paper, [...]

The Reviews for ON YOUR FEET are In…

November 7, 2015 // 0 Comments

The reviews for On Your Feet are in, and what the new musical about Gloria and Emilio Estefan lacks in refined storytelling, it makes up in infectious verve.  The jukebox musical features hits from the 1980s, energizing dance, and strong performances – especially from vibrant leading lady Ana Villafañe playing Gloria – all contributing to [...]

The Reviews for DAMES AT SEA are In…

October 23, 2015 // 0 Comments

Dames at Sea opened at the Helen Hayes Theater on Thursday, and critics agree that this once-golden musical has lost a bit of its charm through the years.  The problem isn’t necessarily with the production itself: the small cast, led by Eloise Kropp as the budding starlet Ruby, performs admirably, and the tap numbers, choreographed by [...]

The Reviews for SPRING AWAKENING are In…

September 28, 2015 // 0 Comments

The reviews for the Deaf West revival of Spring Awakening are in and the critics all have goosebumps. Both deaf and hearing actors deliver stunning performances under the expert direction of Michael Arden. The 4-piece band, simple sets, stark lighting and beautiful period-ish costumes come together to make this a lovely, wonderful exploration of both [...]

The Reviews for Hamilton are In…

August 7, 2015 // 1 Comment

Hamilton, the off-Broadway sensation that made a quick leap to Broadway, opened last night to the rave-est of reviews. No, but really, the critics can’t seem to say enough wonderful things about this production. Yes, the show has an exciting score, excellent casting, great costumes, etc., but what has gotten everyone so riled up is that the story is [...]

The Reviews for Amazing Grace are In…

July 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

The reviews for Amazing Grace are in and ouch! With music by a newcomer to the stage, Christopher Smith, and a book by Mr. Smith and Arthur Giron, the critics found the show clunky, uninteresting, melodramatic, overly-sentimental and soapboxy. Producers spent money on this, but not in the right places. The score, though passable and sung well by a [...]

The Reviews for The Visit are In…

April 28, 2015 // 0 Comments

The reviews for The Visit are in, and while the critics certainly admire legend Chita Rivera and the long journey this Kander and Ebb musical has taken to Broadway, there’s no denying it’s flawed.  The musical tells of Claire Zachanassian’s return to her hometown, a dark and dingy European village, to inflict revenge on the man who shamed [...]

The Reviews for Something Rotten! are In…

April 23, 2015 // 0 Comments

The reviews for Something Rotten! are in, and most find the new musical to be something wonderful, while some others feel it’s just a bit more rotten than it should be.  The musical is set in the Elizabethan Renaissance, when Shakespeare (a devilish idol, winningly played by Christian Borle) is the hottest thing in London and the Bottom brothers [...]

The Reviews for Doctor Zhivago are In…

April 22, 2015 // 0 Comments

The reviews for Doctor Zhivago are in, and this new Les Misérables wannabe may lack great music, lyrics, dialogue, and overall storytelling, but hey, at least the gunfire effects are realistic.  Loosely based on the Boris Pasternak novel and more closely based on the 1965 movie, this new musical tells of a love story in an epic era of revolution and war [...]
