BWW REVIEW: Dames Add Heat to Lyric's CITY OF ANGELSBWW REVIEW: Dames Add Heat to Lyric's CITY OF ANGELS
by Jan Nargi - May 2, 2015

BWW Reviews: Crown Excels with Comedy TonightBWW Reviews: Crown Excels with Comedy Tonight
by Don Grigware - Apr 14, 2015

The now classic musical A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum is silliness personified from its zany characters and inane plot contrivances to its corny yet witty dialogue. It is clever farce set to music. Mistaken identities, zippity fast exits and entrances...it has no rhyme or reason but is terribly, terribly funny with belly laughs about every two seconds. Crown City Theatre's new revival rates an A+ with a devilishly good cast and delicious direction and choreography from Lisaun Whittingham. The production is about as good as it gets. (more...)
