BWW Review: Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp Reflect Upon RENT's Continued Impact in CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF FRIENDSHIP at Feinstein's/54 Belowby Casey Mink - Oct 20, 2016
Often, when performers get their big break at a young age, they spend the ensuing years of their career attempting to escape out from under that encompassing shadow. For Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp, who met in the original Off-Broadway production of RENT in 1995, that is only half true.
In the 20 years since that groundbreaking musical about visionary but disease-stricken bohemians launched their careers, both performers have gone on to perform plentifully inside the theatre and aside from it. However, both Pascal and Rapp have spent the last two decades not basking in the bygone glory of having once starred in a cultural phenomenon, but with the celebratory awareness that each subsequent opportunity likely may not have fallen into their paths without having done so.
For proof of such a mentality, look no further than the duo's two-hander string of shows at Feinstein's/54 Below, ACOUSTICALLY SPEAKING: CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF FRIENDSHIP, the first of which kicked off an impressive 11-performance run on October 8. That title, though, is in part misleading. Although there was ample reflection on behalf of both parties in regards to the near quarter century since they met, the evening consisted of two distinctly separate shows, save for the exception of a select few songs which the two performed together.

BWW CD Review: That 70s Show, DISASTER!by Remy Holzer - Oct 17, 2016
It takes guts to write a parody of 1970s disaster movies. After all, AIRPLANE!, the parody of the AIRPORT series, is one of the most beloved comedies of all time. It also takes guts to write a 1970s jukebox musical. A show you may have heard of called MAMMA MIA! ran for nearly 14 years and 6,000 performances. Nevertheless, into this field of exclamation points flew DISASTER!, a parody of 1970s disaster movies...and a 1970s jukebox musical. The show, co-written by multi-hyphenate Seth Rudetsky (who also plays one of the main roles) and director Jack Plotnick, was perhaps a bit slim for the past Broadway season. Its silliness, specificity, and lack of original songs may have caused it to struggle amid the powerhouse shows surrounding it, and it closed in May after 72 performances. But it did receive some enthusiastic reviews, and in particular acclaim for the breakout performance of Jennifer Simard, who was nominated for a Tony for her performance of a nun with a gambling addiction. (Her big moment in the show, singing 'Never Can Say Goodbye' to a HAWAII FIVE-O-themed slot machine, can be viewed online.) Now Simard will be accompanying the show to London. In the meantime, we have Broadway Records' DISASTER! cast album, which contains 28 (!) songs from the show. (more...)
