BWW Reviews: JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at Bayou City Theatrics Super Let DownBWW Reviews: JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR at Bayou City Theatrics Super Let Down
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Apr 22, 2015

It was the summer of 1988 when I first heard the melodious JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR score. After church, Mamma and Nanny T would make rounds to the local garage sales and the original cast album was one of their finds. I had a vintage stereo with a record player and this was my solace after church or rehearsal. When Bayou City Theatrics announced this show my excitement ranneth over and I was ready to head to the theatre to see what the creatives had for the American Stage. (more...)

by Stage Tube - Mar 31, 2015

Today in 2009, the second Broadway revival of HAIR opened at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre, where it ran for 519 performances.

A product of the hippie counter-culture and sexual revolution of the 1960s, several of its songs became anthems of the anti-Vietnam War peace movement. Hair tells the story of the 'tribe', a group of politically active, long-haired hippies of the 'Age of Aquarius' living a bohemian life in New York City and fighting against conscription into the Vietnam War.

BWW Reviews: Don't Cut HAIR: RETROSPECTIVE From Your Theater ExperienceBWW Reviews: Don't Cut HAIR: RETROSPECTIVE From Your Theater Experience
by Steve Wilson - Mar 29, 2015

Artistic Director Eric Rosen directs Hair: Retrospective, which runs through April 12 at the theater on the University of Missouri at Kansas City campus. The retrospective may actually be more enjoyable than the musical itself, (not just my opinion, heard from audience members also). (more...)
