BWW Reviews: Fringe Review: GIRAFFENSTEIN, Frankenstein with Singing and Dancing GiraffesBWW Reviews: Fringe Review: GIRAFFENSTEIN, Frankenstein with Singing and Dancing Giraffes
by Ellen Dostal - Jun 16, 2014

This original one-act pop musical aims high and often hits its mark although it may not be the musical you think it's going to be. While it contains a fair amount of wry humor, don't expect the kind of silliness you found in The Pokemusical, the team's entry into last year's Fringe Festival. This twist on the Frankenstein story has a more sophisticated harmonic structure and a richer musical texture that gives it an added edge. (more...)

BWW Reviews: SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM is a Lively Revue of Masterful Songs, Now thru 7/8BWW Reviews: SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM is a Lively Revue of Masterful Songs, Now thru 7/8
by Vicky Croisant - May 28, 2012

When all is said and done, Great Lakes Theater should be extremely proud of its first collaboration of PlayhouseSquare as part of the annual Key Bank Broadway Series. The production is on par with the touring shows that stop in Cleveland. Just because SONDHEIM ON SONDHEIM is considered a regional production shouldn't stop people from going to see it. You'll leave the theatre with a deeper appreciate of the theatre process, more knowledge of the amazing Stephen Sondheim and a song or two stuck in your head. (more...)
