BWW Reviews: The MUNY's Smashing BUDDY - THE BUDDY HOLLY STORYBWW Reviews: The MUNY's Smashing BUDDY - THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY
by Chris Gibson - Jul 15, 2015

I think that nearly every review of the MUNY's extraordinary production of BUDDY - THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY will probably make mention of Don McLean's song 'American Pie', which is lyrically centered around the tragic plane crash that claimed the lives of three of music's rising stars one very cold day in February of 1959. In fact, 'the day the music died' has become a rather morbid catchphrase of sorts that has been utilized far too often by the media whenever an iconic musician passes on. I also believe I'm not alone in my assessment that this early'jukebox' musical is an absolutely terrific show that's immensely entertaining. I not only highly recommend this excellent show, but am branding it as a must see production! (more...)

BWW Reviews: Belmont University Musical Theatre's FOOTLOOSE is Exuberant and ExhilaratingBWW Reviews: Belmont University Musical Theatre's FOOTLOOSE is Exuberant and Exhilarating
by Jeffrey Ellis - Nov 18, 2012

Directed with sharp focus by David Shamburger and featuring the expert musical direction of Jo Lynn Burks and the terrific, dance club-infused choreography of Emily Tello Speck, BUMT's Footloose seems far removed from the silly musical theater oddity that debuted on Broadway in 1998, another example of producers seeking to capitalize on a film's success by transferring it to the stage.

Let us know, theaterati!) Here amid the florid prose and flowery praise, you'll find all the stories that don't quite fit elsewhere, some of 'em kind of gossipy, some of 'em stone-cold serious, some of 'em just lists of names you need to know. You'll also find photos from our new "Intermission@" series, details about the latest cast parties and various and sundry minutiae-the veritable flotsam and jetsam-from backstage, onstage, offstage and beyond… (more...)

BWW Reviews: Belmont's HAIRSPRAY is a Shiny, Sparkling Musical Theater TriumphBWW Reviews: Belmont's HAIRSPRAY is a Shiny, Sparkling Musical Theater Triumph
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 17, 2012

This spring's sparkling, stellar production of Hairspray-the musical tale of one Tracy Turnblad, a "stout" girl who loves to dance and loves people no matter their shape, size, color or way of life-is as entertaining a production of the hit musical as you could ever hope to see. Led by a crazy talented bunch of youthful performers (if this were the 1930s, you can bet your bottom dollar they'd be requisitioning somebody's barn for a colorful musical spectacle) who perform their collective heart out for enthusiastic audiences, the production is satisfying on every level.
