BWW Reviews: DISNEY'S TARZAN
by Jude Cartalaba - Jun 21, 2013

Most people think that 'Tarzan' is a love story between Jane Porter, a young artist, and Tarzan, a jungle man. But if one would look closely into the story, 'Tarzan,' the Broadway musical, directed by Chari Arespacochaga, is really about love that transcends into another world. (more...)

Review - The Little Mermaid & Patti LuPone at NJPAC
by Michael Dale - Jun 08, 2013

By Disney standards the year and a half run of the original Broadway production of The Little Mermaid was a bit of a disappointment.  In theory, a competently created musical based on the hit animated film would probably run for a year and a half based on the title recognition alone.  My opinion of that show was higher than most of my colleagues.  I enjoyed it, but mostly for the vaudevillian pleasure of seeing a cast of terrific Broadway performers each getting a star turn or two.  But after some script revisions and a whole new visual concept, director Glenn Casale's production of the new Mermaid that just opened at Paper Mill is a well-crafted, delightfully designed and performed charmer.

BWW Review: THE WIZARD OF OZ at the Fox
by Chris Gibson - Nov 28, 2010

When I asked my son what part of THE WIZARD OF OZ he liked the best he said: 'All of it.' So, I pressed him a little further, and asked who his favorite character was, and he said: 'The Wicked Witch.' I can only say that I wasn't surprised by his answers, but I was surprised by his stamina, as he sat riveted by the action taking place on stage for 2 and 1/2 hours. The touring company at the Fox Theatre this weekend (November 26-28) has conjured up a solid and engaging effort that's greatly enhanced by some memorable special effects wizardry that's particularly effective during the twister sequence.
