As a musical theatre nerd, but broke college student, I have heard the cast recording to The Book of Mormon and watched the Tony's performances many times, but have never seen the show in full. Nevertheless, I thought I was pretty prepared for what I was getting myself into when I went and saw it at Music Hall. I was wrong.BWW Review: GIRLS ONLY-THE SECRET COMEDY OF WOMEN at Starlight Indoor Series October 12, 2016
As a woman, I know that we go through a lot of struggles, and I'm not even talking politically. There's the fact that you can be a C cup at one store but a B cup at another, there is a ton of pressure from the media to be thin, and don't even get me started on panty hose. But that's where the women of 'Girls Only-The Secret Comedy of Women' come in.BWW Review: STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE at Kansas City Actors Theatre September 12, 2016
Growing up with fairy tales we are used to a happy ending. In the movie, the guy always gets the girl. But THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY playing at Starlight Theatre changes all of those preconceived notions.BWW Review: A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN at Theaterleague March 23, 2016
I was pretty excited to see this show, I do not usually look anything up about a show if I do not know a whole lot about it; I like to go in completely blind. But a minute into this show I started to panic, I knew nothing about Janis Joplin. I guess I should have known from the title what I was in for, but I expected it to be a play where I would learn about her (a la Jersey Boys style), but this was a rock concert, so I started to feel like I would not be able to do a good job reviewing this show. I mean I'm a 90's baby. The first album I ever bought was a two-disc compilation of Britney Spears and 'N SYNC songs, followed by Spiceworld. So what would I know about a 60's rock and roll singer with a love for the blues?BWW Review: NEWSIES at Music Hall February 24, 2016
