BWW Review: Joyful Praise for UNEXPECTED JOY at WHATBWW Review: Joyful Praise for UNEXPECTED JOY at WHAT
by Kristen Morale - Jul 28, 2016

This, in addition to the almost absurd talent of the cast and crew that is Unexpected Joy, is why you should all take a visit to WHAT as soon as you possibly can to witness the world premiere of this beautiful show. In association with Jim Kierstead, with a book and lyrics by Bill Russell, music by Janet Hood and now under the direction of Lynne Taylor-Corbett, this one is truly a winner. (more...)

BWW Review: PAGEANT is Pink Cotton Candy EscapismBWW Review: PAGEANT is Pink Cotton Candy Escapism
by Frank Benge - Jun 13, 2016

PAGEANT, when it originally opened in 1991, was almost ground breaking. The idea of doing a musical parody of a beauty pageant performed by men in drag was fresh… and a little bit crazy in all the good ways. However, twenty five years later, in 2016, the concept creaks in a world where we have RuPaul's Drag Race and traditional beauty pageants have been relegated to cable channels few people watch.

BWW Review: Circuit's PAGEANT Offers 50 Shades of PinkBWW Review: Circuit's PAGEANT Offers 50 Shades of Pink
by Joseph Baker - Mar 14, 2016

If you decide to attend Circuit Playhouse's production of PAGEANT in the next few weeks, and if you find yourself blushing at some of the eyebrow-raising humor, there's no need for alarm: Pink cheeks will blend right in, as the stage, many of the dresses and gowns, and much of the make-up are redolent with that color. However, the musical tends more toward the 'purple' at times, with innuendo, knowing looks, and pregnant pauses. Nonetheless, Robert Longbottom's lightweight little satire (with Book and Lyrics by Bill Russell and Frank Kelly and Music by Albert Evans) is a relatively harmless (and highly enjoyable) outing.
