BWW CD REVIEWS: BUNNICULA (Original Off-Broadway Cast Recording) is Quirky and Laugh Out Loud Funny
by Brittany Goldfield Rodrigues - Jul 23, 2013

Our favourite childhood vampire rabbit is back, and ready to sing. BUNNICULA opened Off-Broadway, with Music and Lyrics by Sam Davis and Mark Waldrop and a book by Charles Busch. This creative team brought the childhood book by Deoborah and James Howe, Bunnicula, and it's accompanied family fun to the stage to mostly positive reviews.

BWW Review: MONTY PYTHON'S SPAMALOT at the Fox Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Jan 10, 2011

As an avowed Monty Python fan, it was with much anticipation that I looked forward to finally getting the opportunity to see SPAMALOT. Unfortunately, this hodgepodge of scenes cobbled from the cult film (although admittedly, it is a very large cult) Monty Python and the Holy Grail, failed to fully engage me.

But, a game cast put on a fine display nonetheless at the Fox Theatre this past weekend (January 7-9, 2011). (more...)
