BWW Reviews: JERSEY BOYS is a Blast at the Fox Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Feb 25, 2014

I don't think there's any "jukebox musical" that's as entertaining and interesting as JERSEY BOYS, and there are a lot of musicals out there that rely on classic rock, pop, country and blues for their score. What sets JERSEY BOYS apart from the rest is the fact that it actually has a story to tell (book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice), and it integrates these timeless tunes seamlessly (music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe, although a plethora of other songwriters contribute as well) by examining how they were created and recorded. The current touring production playing the Fabulous Fox Theatre is a nostalgic blast that's sharply performed and staged. (more...)

BWW Reviews: GHOST: THE MUSICAL is Dead on Arrival
by David Clarke - Feb 19, 2014

When GHOST: THE MUSICAL opened on Broadway it was met by a bevy of critical slams and was plagued by technical issues that would stall the production. Now, the troubled movie turned musical turned theme-park ride is limping, zombie-like, across the nation in a Non-Equity National Tour. Luckily, the production is employing a handful of theatre professionals. In many ways, that is this overblown clunker of a show's only saving grace. (more...)

by Misha Davenport - Jan 14, 2014

Shows like 'Ghost: The Musical' are the reason I have nightmares about punctuality (specifically colons when they precede'The Musical'). There are perhaps no two words that strike fear in the heart of theater critics quite like 'The Musical.' (more...)
