BWW Reviews: Everything's Coming Up Roses at GYPSYBWW Reviews: Everything's Coming Up Roses at GYPSY
by Jeff Davis (San Antonio)

(3/5/2015) - Ask any musical theater junkie what's the best musical of all time, and any worth their spit will answer with one word: Gypsy. The iconic show is highly regarded to this day with good reason. The score's infectious, the sets and costumes eye-catching, and the characters, particularly that of Mama Rose, are on par with those found in plays by Arthur Miller or Tennessee Williams. Gypsy isn't just musical theater. It's a great American Drama, and all that the show can and should be comes to vivid life in The Playhouse's current production.

by Tyler Hinton (Salt Lake City)

(3/5/2015) - LES MISERABLES is a show that Utah knows and adores. With the constant stream of productions in the state since the performance rights were made available, you'd be hard pressed to find a local theatre fan who hasn't recently seen it live. So why see the current production at Hale Center Theater Orem? Because it is, quite frankly, better than any professional or semi-professional production that has been mounted along the Wasatch Front.
