AWARDS SEASON 2016: Drama League Award Winners

May 21, 2016 // 1 Comment

The Drama League Award winners are in and Hamilton grabbed the outstanding production award, plus one for creator/actor Lin-Manuel Miranda. (The show lost out to An American in Paris in last year when it played Off-Broadway, so the win has to feel like some sort of extra redemption for the creative team.) The winning revival was surprisingly not She [...]

May 9, 2016 // 0 Comments

If you were wondering what the Tony Awards might have looked like without Hamilton, the Outer Critics Circle Awards might be a good indication. Bright Star took home the big prize, but She Loves Me, the winner for best revival, walked away with the most wins of any show (4).

The Reviews for SHUFFLE ALONG are In…

April 29, 2016 // 3 Comments

The reviews for Shuffle Along Or, The Making of the Musical Sensation of 1921 and All That Followed are in, and the critics are in large consensus – it’s a must-see. Though it starts as a musical about putting on a musical – standard Broadway fare – it finishes as much more, offering profound themes like racial equality, artistic [...]

AWARDS SEASON 2016: Drama Desk Award Nominations

April 28, 2016 // 0 Comments

The Drama Desk Award nominees were announced this morning and producers for Shuffle Along, which had been snubbed by the other award nominating committees, must have been pleased with the Outstanding Musical and other nods. And though neither was nominated for Outstanding Musical, American Psycho and Bright Star did get the most nominations (8 and 7, [...]

The Reviews for TUCK EVERLASTING are In…

April 27, 2016 // 0 Comments

The reviews for Tuck Everlasting are in, and the critics are split…it turns out not all magical stories turn out to be magical Broadway shows. Though there are moments of brilliance in the music by Chris Miller, lyrics by Nathan Tysen, and direction and choreography by Casey Nicholaw, the heavy-handed book offers more challenges than rewards. The plot [...]

The Reviews for WAITRESS are In…

April 25, 2016 // 1 Comment

The reviews for Waitress are in, and this new musical offers a tasty blend of savory and sweet. Based on the 2007 film of the same name, the musical has serious subject matter at its heart – loveless love and spousal abuse – but the creative pair of Sara Bareilles (score) and Jessie Nelson (book) offer just enough sugarcoating to make it feel [...]
