April 9, 2019 // 0 Comments

And critics might say they’re in love. This naturalistic re-imagining of Oklahoma! may be less its traditional Broadway polish, but that’s one of the reasons the critics call it “wide-awake, jolting and altogether wonderful.” Set in the center of a mid-western arena, where guns adorn the walls and chili bubbles on the stage, the ...

The songs are, of course, hits, the leads acquit themselves (Stephanie J. Block, Teal Weaks, and Micaela Diamond deliver fine performances as Cher in the Star, Lady, and Babe stages of her career), and the costumes by Bob ...

The Reviews for KING KONG are In…

The reviews for King Kong are in, and while the great ape puppet dominating the Broadway Theater boards may be the king of his stage, this production doesn’t exactly sound poised for the throne.
