The Reviews for Annie are In…

November 9, 2012 // 1 Comment

The reviews for Annie are in and critics couldn’t be more pleased with the timing of a dog named Sandy bounding onstage to help heal the woes left by the hurricane of the same name. The show’s big name, Katie Finneran, receives mixed reviews for her performance of Miss Hannigan, but Lilla Crawford as Annie and Anthony Warlow as Daddy Warbucks, [...]

The Reviews for Ghost the Musical are In…

April 24, 2012 // 0 Comments

Yowsa. When the AP is the only one with something positive to say, you know you’re in trouble. Deemed by reviewers to be an unimaginative, boilerplate and overly-sappy musical with a whole lot of video and special effects thrown on top to try to hide the boring mess underneath, Ghost had better garner some fan love if it’s going to survive [...]

The Reviews for Godspell are In

November 8, 2011 // 0 Comments

The reviews for Godspell are in and they are not what Producers were hoping to see. Though some of the cast, like Telly Leung and Lindsay Mendez, get some nice shout outs, reviewers all agree – the show is simply trying too hard and better belongs Off-Off-Off-Off-Off-Off Broadway, at your local high school or community theatre, than at the Circle in [...]

And wow do critics love it. I haven’t seen critical praise this unanimous for years! Every element of the show was lauded – the music, the cast, the writing – everything. They all agree – it’s a book musical done right with a perfect amount of childish cheek layered on top. Congratulations to all involved! NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW [...]

Priscilla Queen of the Desert opened on Broadway on March 20 to very mixed reviews. Most critics agree that is show is made of fabulous fluff, but some were left wanting more, while others were carried away by the elaborate glitz. Have you seen the show? What did you think? NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW “Every conceivable surface has been decked with sequins, [...]

The reviews for Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson are in…

October 14, 2010 // 8 Comments

The newest Off-Broadway transfer to hit the Great White Way – the satirical rock musical, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson – has opened on Broadway and the critics are loving it. It’s John Stewart meets American Idiot in the style of an SNL music video. Though a bit sophomoric at times and perhaps better fit for its original downtown home, [...]

The reviews for Ragtime are in …

November 16, 2009 // 2 Comments

The last time Ragtime appeared on Broadway, a whole new theater was built to house the gigantic production. This time, the show comes from a much humbler place and the critics couldn’t be more complimentary – its fresh, relavant and powerful. Here are what the major publications had to say: NEW YORK TIMES The judiciously pared-down production [...]

October 30, 2009 // 2 Comments

Finian’s Rainbow opened on Broadway to universal critical acclaim. The consensus: featuring a brilliant cast and score and a sweet, simple staging – this production embodies everything a Broadway musical should be. Here’s what the critics had to say, in their own words: NEW YORK TIMES Here is where you should head this fall to warm your [...]
