BWW Review: Tori Scott Provides Post-Election Catharsis in SEEING DOUBLE at Joe's PubBWW Review: Tori Scott Provides Post-Election Catharsis in SEEING DOUBLE at Joe's Pub
by Troy Frisby - Nov 30, 2016

Early on in Tori Scott's SEEING DOUBLE, the woman of the hour deadpanned, 'I've been in a rut since birth.' If that's the case, we should all be so lucky. But on the subject of things that could be going better, throughout Scott's performance at Joe's Pub on November 13, the unofficial theme of the night was, 'Could this year get any worse?'

BWW Review: Paramount's MAMMA MIA! Happily Goes Again, Not ResistedBWW Review: Paramount's MAMMA MIA! Happily Goes Again, Not Resisted
by Patrick O'Brien - Sep 19, 2016

The unquestioned immortality of Mamma Mia! took a hit last year when its Broadway run came to an end after playing fourteen years, two theatres and 5,773 performances.
