BWW Review: Porchlight Music Theatre's AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' Brings Swinging Holiday Spirit to Stage 773BWW Review: Porchlight Music Theatre's AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' Brings Swinging Holiday Spirit to Stage 773
by Rachel Weinberg - Nov 27, 2015

Audiences looking for a jazzy and celebratory way to get into a holiday mood should look no further than Porchlight Music Theatre's AIN'T MISBEHAVIN'. This Fats Waller musical revue provides plenty of joy and entertainment but remains distinct among the city's holiday offerings because the show's content does not explicitly pertain to the holiday season. Aside from a few sprinklings of holiday tinsel in Jeffery D. Kmiec's set design, AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' revels primarily in its joyful celebration of Thomas 'Fats' Waller's song catalog--and will have audiences toe-tapping along to the music. (more...)

BWW Review: Porchlight Music Theatre's Intimate, Entertaining SIDE SHOW Brings Sideline Attractions Center StageBWW Review: Porchlight Music Theatre's Intimate, Entertaining SIDE SHOW Brings Sideline Attractions Center Stage
by Rachel Weinberg - Sep 21, 2015

The opening number of the newly revised SIDE SHOW invites audiences to "Come Look at the Freaks." In doing so, however, the musical really prepares spectators to look upon the circus attractions in the show with empathy rather than alienation and astonishment. With this intimate production from Porchlight Music Theatre led by Artistic Director Michael Weber, the Chicago premiere of the 2014 revision of SIDE SHOW (seen on Broadway last season) brings the humanity of the show's characters to the forefront. While I enjoyed the Broadway revival of SIDE SHOW at the nearly 2,000 seat St. James Theatre, I also felt that it put me at a distance from the action onstage. The show had a pervading eeriness to it. But with Porchlight's production, audiences are able to come close to the conjoined Hilton sisters - the result is highly entertaining, with a strong dash of pathos and emotional resonance.
