The Reviews for THE LIGHTNING THIEF are In…

The critics were sadly not impressed with The Lightning Thief, scheduled for a brief run at the Longacre Theatre now through January 5.

The Reviews for MOULIN ROUGE! are In…

Moulin Rouge! is open, and while not all the critics are sold on the jukebox-y, mashup-y, remix-y score, they're all in love with the spectacular design and stellar performances.

The Reviews for OKLAHOMA are In…

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 production…
