BWW Review: TheatreWorks Revives an Excellent DADDY LONG LEGSBWW Review: TheatreWorks Revives an Excellent DADDY LONG LEGS
by Harmony Wheeler - Dec 7, 2016

Like many, I was introduced to the charms of Daddy Long Legs when the show recently became the first Off-Broadway production to stream a performance live on the Internet. Bay Area audiences may have an advantage on the rest of the world, though, as the show had its origins at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley. The company is no stranger to Paul Gordon musicals, having given us an excellent revival of Emma as recent as last December. But Daddy Long Legs is perhaps the most fully realized of Gordon's works, exhibiting both his propensity for story-driven songs and some of his most exquisite ballads and duets. (more...)

BWW Reviews: NYMF's SINGLE WIDE is Heartwarming Despite Unintentional CampBWW Reviews: NYMF's SINGLE WIDE is Heartwarming Despite Unintentional Camp
by David Clarke - Jul 28, 2015

My favorite thing about attending NYMF is the fact that I truly never know what to expect from the works I see there. Walking into SINGLE WIDE, I was expecting a completely irreverent musical soiree along the lines of David Nehls and Betsy Kelso's THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK MUSICAL. Instead, I was treated to a nearly complete project with a heartwarming story that was as wholesome as it was entertaining. (more...)

BWW Reviews: PPAC Flashes Back to the '80s with Touring FLASHDANCE: THE MUSICALBWW Reviews: PPAC Flashes Back to the '80s with Touring FLASHDANCE: THE MUSICAL
by Robert Barossi - Mar 26, 2014

When adapting movies into Broadway musicals, it certainly helps to start with a movie that revolves around singing and dancing. Or, at least, a movie that includes some kind of singing or dancing as a major part of the story or plot. That way, adding more singing and dancing should at least have a solid, logical starting point. It would seem, then, that the movie Flashdance is a perfect choice. It's right there in the title. The whole movie revolves around…wait for it…dance! Unfortunately, the Broadway touring production that is visiting PPAC takes a promising start and turns it into a long, bloated and mostly boring slog through two hours at the theater. (more...)
