BWW CD Review: Broadway Records' FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (2016 Broadway Cast Recording) Charms with NuanceBWW CD Review: Broadway Records' FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (2016 Broadway Cast Recording) Charms with Nuance
by David Clarke - Apr 20, 2016

When I saw the current Broadway revival of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, I enjoyed it. So, it was a surprise when I didn't feel the same way about Broadway Records' FIDDLER ON THE ROOF (2016 Broadway Cast Recording) upon first listen. FIDDLER ON THE ROOF is one of my top four favorite shows of all time, so I gave the album another couples of listens, and the charm of this record revealed itself to me. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Passions Erupt in THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY at The Fox TheatreBWW Reviews: Passions Erupt in THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY at The Fox Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Apr 9, 2016

Based on the novel by Robert James Waller, that people seem to either love or loath, THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY would seem to be a story which relies very heavily on particular imagery conjured up in the readers' mind by the landscape the characters occupy. The film version did make a valiant effort to convey that, even if it had a number of shortcomings. But, that would seem to be a rather large hurdle to clear for a stage production, much less a musical. So, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I genuinely enjoyed this musical adaptation. Jason Robert Brown's music and lyrics (book by Marsha Norman) fit each character and moment like a glove, while dancing around different styles to reflect various moods and emotions. Plus, the story is compelling enough to translate to a wide audience, especially those who like their stories a bit sentimental and bittersweet. The current touring production onstage at The Fox Theatre is certainly well worthy of your time and attention, and you can see it through April 17th, 2016. (more...)
