Orphans, Lucky Breaks and Hard Work! Seven Rags-to-Riches Musicals from ANNIE to ANASTASIAOrphans, Lucky Breaks and Hard Work! Seven Rags-to-Riches Musicals from ANNIE to ANASTASIA
by Jessica Khan - Apr 24, 2017

BWW Review: Talented Cast Sails into SOUTH PACIFIC at Jewel Box TheatreBWW Review: Talented Cast Sails into SOUTH PACIFIC at Jewel Box Theatre
by Robert Barossi - Apr 16, 2017

Rodgers and Hammerstein shows are known for being of a certain type. They are rarely what might be called small or minimalist and it would be tricky for any theater to do minimalist versions of most of them. These are shows that often have the word “big” attached to them and for a smaller sized theater with somewhat  limited resources to attempt one of these big shows is an ambitious effort. Jewel Box Theatre is currently trying to do just that with a fully staged production of one of these shows, South Pacific, and the attempt ends up with highly mixed results. (more...)

BWW Review: THE KING AND I: Still Something WonderfulBWW Review: THE KING AND I: Still Something Wonderful
by Nancy Grossman - Apr 14, 2017

The National Tour of the Tony Award-winning Lincoln Center Theater production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's THE KING AND I brings its parade of adorable children, a pair of star-crossed lovers, an imperial ruler, and a strong-willed, warm-hearted educator to the Boston Opera House through April 23rd. One of the grande dames of the 1950s, THE KING AND I retains its exalted place in the R & H pantheon, thanks to the artistry of Director Bartlett Sher, a songbird by the name of Laura Michelle Kelly, and a flawed King of Siam for our times, Jose Llana.

BWW Review: BROADWAY BY THE YEAR Illuminates the Timeless Relationship Between Art and Culture, Paying Tribute to the 1940sBWW Review: BROADWAY BY THE YEAR Illuminates the Timeless Relationship Between Art and Culture, Paying Tribute to the 1940s
by Casey Mink - Apr 13, 2017

At the most recent BROADWAY BY THE YEAR presentation on March 27, at its usual home of the Town Hall, the 1940s was the sent-up decade from which the evening's performers sang. At a time in the country that currently bears striking and cryptic similarity to that grim period of global history, the resonance of the evening's selections rang eerily. Additionally, they also demonstrated how little the relationship between culture and society has changed over the last seven decades. (more...)
