BWW Review: Megan Hilty Pairs Vocal Prowess with Holiday Levity in Joe's Pub Christmas ConcertsBWW Review: Megan Hilty Pairs Vocal Prowess with Holiday Levity in Joe's Pub Christmas Concerts
by Casey Mink - Dec 8, 2016

Holiday cheer is considerably tenuous this year, in much of the country, anyway. But damn if that would prevent Megan Hilty from delivering abundant joy in her four-show engagement at Joe's Pub, a run which began December 2.

by Christina Mancuso - Nov 24, 2016

Once upon a time in 1957 there was a helpless young damsel who toiled tirelessly in rags while her cruel stepmother and self-centered stepsisters forced her into a life of servitude.

It's now 2016 and gone are the days when a meek would-be princess sits around waiting for her prince to come, let alone even thinking about leaving a Venetian glass slipper behind. (more...)
