BWW Review: Rewritten PAINT YOUR WAGON at 5th Ave is Better but Still Has ProblemsBWW Review: Rewritten PAINT YOUR WAGON at 5th Ave is Better but Still Has Problems
by Jay Irwin - Jun 10, 2016

I'll admit unfamiliarity with Lerner and Loewe's "Paint Your Wagon" before recently. Never saw the original, never saw the movie, and had only a passing familiarity with the bigger songs in it. So to educate myself before seeing this production I watched the movie, which was also rewritten from the original musical version but what I had available to me. Wow, what a train wreck that is! Horrific story, songs that move nothing along and a movie that seems to be there solely for Lee Marvin to mug to the camera. So I was trepidatious to say the least about this rewritten version at the 5th Avenue Theatre and after seeing it I'm of two minds. (more...)

BWW Review: Killer Talent in 5th Ave/ACT's ASSASSINSBWW Review: Killer Talent in 5th Ave/ACT's ASSASSINS
by Jay Irwin - Mar 11, 2016

Only the incredible Stephen Sondheim could make a musical about Presidential assassins and make it work. It's a dark subject that you think wouldn't be sung about. But Sondheim shows off his storytelling prowess by creating a sort of club or group therapy aspect to the group of killers as they attempt to tie all their works together with the act of their most famous member. And while the cast of the current joint production from the 5th Avenue Theatre and ACT certainly has the talent to pull off this demanding show, they don't always feel cohesive or in the same club but hopefully as they settle in that will come.
