April 26, 2018 // 0 Comments

The Drama Desk Award noms are in, and unlike some years, most everyone seems to be in agreement about the winning shows for this season. SpongeBob SquarePants and Mean Girls are once again at the head of the pack, but the most love was given to this year’s revival of Carousel. Join the conversation, bookmark our awards page, subscribe to the blog, ...

April 25, 2018 // 0 Comments

More award nominations are in — those for the Outer Critics Circle Awards — and SpongeBob SquarePants got an incredible 11 nominations, with My Fair Lady and Mean Girls close on its heels with 9 and 8 nominations respectively.  The Drama Leagued snubbed Escape to Margaritaville and Prince of Broadway got a little love from the OCC, but ...

The Reviews for SUMMER: THE DONNA SUMMER MUSICAL are In…

April 24, 2018 // 0 Comments

The critics have spoken and the team behind Summer: The Donna Summer Musical isn’t working hard enough for the money. Excepting LaChanze’s mostly compelling performance of Diva Donna, one of three characters that together depict the legendary Donna Summer, this new jukebox musical may start feeling more like a jokebox musical. With a sanitized ...

The Reviews for MY FAIR LADY Are In…

April 20, 2018 // 0 Comments

The reviews for My Fair Lady are in, and the critics approve of this My Fair Lady for a #MeToo America. Director Bartlett Sher is smart and precise in reimagining the classic, introducing thoughtful text tweaks and employing (what some might call) inventive casting to craft a musical that feels familiar and brand new at once. Lauren Ambrose is a star as ...

AWARDS SEASON 2018: Drama League Award Nominees

April 19, 2018 // 0 Comments

Once again, a musical didn’t take home the Pulitzer this year (Martyna Majok’s Cost of Living received that awesome honor this year) but awards season is here and we are so excited to announce the list of nominees for the 2018 Drama League Awards! We recommend bookmarking our awards page, which will always be the first place we announce ...

The Reviews for CAROUSEL are In…

April 13, 2018 // 0 Comments

The reviews for Carousel are in, and the critics love the new life that’s been breathed into this Rodgers and Hammerstein classic. The direction by Jack O’Brien and the choreography by Justin Peck are (mostly) outstanding… the production is thoughtful in tone, playing honestly to both the light and dark moments, and the choreography is ...

The Reviews for MEAN GIRLS are In…

April 9, 2018 // 0 Comments

Mean Girls is open on Broadway, and the critics say it’s far from perfect, but a pretty fun homage to the beloved 2004 film favorite. With a book adapted by Tina Fey from a screenplay by Tina Fey, Mean Girls on Broadway shares much with its source material, including the plot, characters, and now-legendary one-liners, but smartly evolves to set the ...

The Reviews for FROZEN are In…

March 23, 2018 // 0 Comments

Frozen is open on Broadway, and the critics are… luke warm. The leads (Caissie Levy as Elsa and Patti Murin as Anna) deliver on their parts, offering fully developed characters that feel inspired by the film but evolved enough to capture attention in a live setting. And the production is certainly stunning, even if a bit inconsistent in style, ...

The Reviews for ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE are In…

March 16, 2018 // 0 Comments

Jimmy Buffett’s Escape to Margaritaville is open on Broadway, and this new jukebox musical doesn’t sip champagne on opening night – it slugs frozen margaritas. With tiki hut lobby design (complete with frozen and on-the-rocks margaritas) and “colorful” and care-free music and characters, the production invites you to check ...
