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 Fun Home are In…

April 20, 2015 // 0 Comments

The reviews for Fun Home are in, and the critics agree that this may just – actually – be the best musical on Broadway this season.  Based on a graphic novel by Alison Bechdel, this new musical by Jeanine Tesori (music) and Lisa Kron (book and lyrics) is actually a journey through Bechdel’s personal memories, a journey meant to uncover [...]
