by Jennifer Broski - Apr 11, 2015

It's 1992. Scrunchies are in and mullets are out. 'Baywatch' is a hit and Time Magazine's Man of the Year is Bill Clinton. He's optimistic, charismatic, and he's bringing saxy back! Clinton the Musical is a sensational and satirical look at the 42nd President who upholds the ideals of Lady Liberty while simultaneously charming the pantsuit off her. With Hillary by his side, he's bringing new life to the party. Clinton The Musical, the new headline making musical by Paul Hodge and Michael Hodge began performances on March 25, 2015. Directed and choreographed by Tony Award nominee Dan Knechtges, Clinton The Musical opened earlier this week at New World Stages (340 West 50 Street). Check out photos from the special night below!

CABARET LIFE NYC: My Second Half of 2014 Cabaret Journey or One Reviewer's Long Procrastination Special as We Bid Farewell to Another Year of Show HoppingCABARET LIFE NYC: My Second Half of 2014 Cabaret Journey or One Reviewer's Long Procrastination Special as We Bid Farewell to Another Year of Show Hopping
by Stephen Hanks - Dec 26, 2014

If you've been a regular reader of this particular reviewer's musings, you know that every year there are long stretches of time where I just haven't been able to critique all the shows I've seen that deserve commentary. So I end up playing what they call in sports, 'Catch-up ball,' and post a mash up of belated reviews from past shows. It's kind of like a critic's version of the song 'Six Months Out of Every Year,' from Damn Yankees. Give or take a month or two, that's usually the time period during which I store unpublished reviews in my fevered brain and then unload them all in one seemingly endless column-like this one is going to be. If my cabaret-show reviewing days will be over (as chronicled here), I might as well go out with a bang-and relieve my procrastination guilt during holiday season. Now I can scratch one New Year's resolution off the list. (more...)
