It also featured some of those traditional second act problems that often plague new musicals looking for a Broadway home. (more...)

by Michael Dale - Dec 1, 2016

For a musical about the accidental death of six teenagers and a contest to select just one of them to return to life, Brooke Maxwell and Jacob Richmond's Ride the Cyclone, mounted by MCC after development in Canadian cabarets and a successful Chicago run, is curiously lacking in any kind of emotion or tension.

by Heather Hill - Nov 29, 2016

This is the sort of production you can slip into easily; find yourself there in the story. It's an ordinary story about an extraordinary thing-yet another reason to love it.
