April 24, 2017

Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID debuted in movie theatres way back in 1989, but nearly twenty years of children singing "Kiss The Girl," "Part of your World," and "Pour Unfortunate Souls" led Disney to produce the celebrated story on a Broadway stage in 2009. And although the show lasted less than two years in New York, it is quickly becoming a staple among high schools, regional and youth theatres. Casa Manana's current production (using the edited "Junior" version of the script) is a shining example of what the show is written to inspire: fun and freedom!

There are few theatres doing Greek tragedy these days, but Dallas Theater Center has taken on the challenge of making Sophocles' tragic tale of ELECTRA one that will resonate with a modern audience. Dallas Theater Center's "one-of-a-kind outdoor experience" of the play not only embraces all the drama; it raises the stakes with a fresh, in-your-face approach.

When IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU opened on Broadway in April of 2015, it didn't quite get the reception the producers intended, closing just shy of three months later and receiving zero Tony Awards nominations. But, the producers at Uptown Players saw a hidden gem, and took a chance on this sweet, funny wedding-themed musical and now local audiences have a chance to take part in the nuptial entertainment.

Between their two lofty resumes, Broadway husband-and-wife duo Amy Spanger and Brian Shepard have a grand total of 15 Broadway credits to their names. Adding in their multiple film/TV credits and cast recordings, the phrase 'triple threat' couldn't be a better fit to define their talents. And with the skills they've honed on 'the boards,' the couple is eager to support the next generation of Broadway gypsies through their new training program: 'Married to Broadway.'

Last year, Rose created the role of Misty Mae in the critically acclaimed production of MOONSHINE: THAT HEE HAW MUSICAL, shortly after making a name for herself in Broadway's HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING.

There's one sizable concern that I have about Casa Manana's production of WEST SIDE STORY, and that's the fact that it's only slated to perform for two weekends, with closing night quickly approaching. This version of the classic 1950's American musical may not only be the best production to appear in The Dome in recent memory, but this local showing could quite probably rival any previous incarnation of the show altogetherever.
