The Reviews for FLYING OVER SUNSET are In…

Reviews are out for Flying Over Sunset, the latest from James Lapine, and critics were largely underwhelmed by the trip. Though the performers and tech all wowed, the story was ultimately too heavy-handed, heady and flat, leaving critics bored and wanting more. Looking for something new and different? This definitely delivers there. But perhaps in a way no one was looking for...

The Reviews for COMPANY are In…

Critics have weighed in on the latest Broadway opening, and with the exception of the New York Times, all came out yelling: "Go see this show!!!" Though they all agree than Katrina Lenk, the Tony-winning Actress from The Band’s Visit, doesn't quite step up to fill the shoes of the regendered lead either vocally or emotionally, the wonderful music, ensemble and design behind this production make up for her performance, and combine to make it a marvelous production none-the-less. Patti LuPone delivers a career toppling turn as Joanne, and with a couple notable exceptions, the gender-swapping worked far better than critics had feared. They found this sharp reconception of a Sondheim masterpiece surprising, exciting, moving and well worth a trip to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater.

The Reviews for MRS. DOUBTFIRE are In…

he premise central to the story, which worked okay back in the 90s, feels cringeworthy at best today, leaving many to question why the adaptation was even attempted.

The Reviews for DIANA: THE MUSICAL are In…

The reviews for Diana are in and ouch did the critics tear it to shreds. They all agree that the tone of the musical is just plain off; the team really missed the mark, often cringingly so. Some feel it's so bad that it actually warrants a hate watch, but with a version available to watch on Netflix, will audiences spend the money on a Broadway ticket for the privilege? Time will tell.

Awards Season 2020: The Tony Awards are Actually Happening!

The dangling Tony nominations from last year's odd season are finally going to be announced. The ceremony will be happening on September 26, but like many things COVID-related, it won't quite be what we're used to. Most of the awards will be broadcast via the streaming platform Paramount+ beginning at 7 p.m. ET, followed by a…

Awards Season 2020: Pulitzer Prize for Drama Winner

The Pulitzer Prize for Drama for 2020 has been awarded to the wonderful new musical, A Strange Loop by Michael R. Jackson - a metafictional musical that tracks the creative process of an artist transforming issues of identity, race, and sexuality that once pushed him to the margins of the cultural mainstream into a meditation…
