by Robert Barossi - Dec 11, 2014

Some classic stories, tales, myths and legends do more than stand the test of time. They speak to generation after generation, entertaining and teaching new audiences across the ages. The legends of King Arthur and his knights of Camelot are those kinds of stories. They remain as well-known and beloved today as they have ever been. There are similar theatrical entertainments, plays and musicals, that stand the test of time, entertaining the masses in the same way for years and decades. Unfortunately, Camelot, the musical version of those Arthurian legends, is not that kind of musical. (more...)

BWW Reviews: JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT Ovewhelms PPAC Stage with SpectacleBWW Reviews: JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT Ovewhelms PPAC Stage with Spectacle
by Robert Barossi - Nov 5, 2014

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical that lends itself to a wide range of production styles and interpretations.
