by BWW News Desk - May 19, 2015

The Marriott Theatre, 10 Marriott Drive, Lincolnshire, presents the six-time Tony Award-winning classic, CITY OF ANGELS, winner of Best Musical, Best Original Score by David Zippel and Cy Coleman, and Best Book by Larry Gelbart, previewing June 10, opening June 17th and running through August 2. Five-time Jeff Award-winning Director Nick Bowling brings his exceptional talent to the hilarious and ingenious musical comedy with choreography by Jeff Award-winner Tommy Rapley. Music Director, and Jeff Award-nominee, Ryan T. Nelson enlivens the sensational score, featuring a rich melange of jazz and bebop styles. CITY OF ANGELS is the rarest of musical comedies; one that is not only loaded with music and written in the contemporary jazz idiom, but also filled with sidesplitting comedy, set in the glamorous, seductive Hollywood of the 40?s - the world of film studios and flimsy negligees.

STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 5/8/15- A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUMSTAGE TUBE: On This Day for 5/8/15- A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM
by Stage Tube - May 8, 2015

Today in 1962, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum opened at the Alvin Theatre (now the Neil Simon Theatre), where it ran for 964 performances. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Burt Shevelove and Larry Gelbart. Inspired by the farces of the ancient Roman playwright Plautus, specifically Pseudolus, Miles Gloriosus and Mostellaria, the musical tells the bawdy story of a slave named Pseudolus and his attempts to win his freedom by helping his young master woo the girl next door. The musical's original 1963 Broadway run won several Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Book. A Funny Thing has enjoyed several Broadway and West End revivals and was made into a successful film starring the original lead of the musical, Zero Mostel. (more...)

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

CITY OF ANGELS, Larry Gelbart, Cy Coleman, and David Zippel's musical romp through the seedy underworld of Hollywood via film noir, would be nothing without its dazzling dames. The same holds true for the production soon ending its run at Boston's Lyric Stage. Without the humor and heat brought by the wonderful Leigh Barrett and Jennifer Ellis, director Spiro Veloudos' CITY OF ANGELS would be all steak and no sizzle. (more...)

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...)

More than ninety percent of the audience-members who attend NextStop Theatre Company productions in Herndon, Virginia come from within a 5 mile radius of the tucked-away theatre, housed in a "covert" warehouse location next to Washington's Dulles Airport. But the hidden theatre company continues to achieve the unusual: enticing DC's top artists to travel outside the beltway. (more...)
