Jennifer Diamond is set to make her Joe's Pub solo debut on March 27th, at 9:30 P.M. After selling out at FEINSTEIN'S/54 BELOW, with her debut act, IT MY FIRST TIME: PLEASE BE GENTLE, she's bringing it to the LES's music hot-spot with IT'S MY FIRST TIME: DOWNTOWN EDITION. Both were directed by longtime pal Richard Jay-Alexander. They first worked together on LES MISERABLES and a number of benefits, and Jay-Alexander found her uniquely talented and versatile enough to put a special spin on a debut act for her, visiting her arrival into the business, her story as an up-and-coming actress and all the good and bad (and bad) that goes with it. New material has been added and, of course, new stories continue in the saga of "Girl comes to New York to Take Broadway By Storm." (more...)

BWW Blog: Paisley Haddad - 'Falling Slowly' in Love With ONCE and SOMETHING ROTTEN!BWW Blog: Paisley Haddad - 'Falling Slowly' in Love With ONCE and SOMETHING ROTTEN!
by Guest Blogger: Paisley Haddad - Feb 13, 2017

Last Saturday I attended the Broadway tour of Once The Musical. I knew that they had won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2012, but I had never really looked into the show.  I had expected it to be not my favorite of the Broadway series at The Hanover Theatre, but I had been totally wrong. The music was mesmerizing, and the set was cleverly done. Before the show, they let the audience up on stage to buy their drinks from the bar in the pub set that they had created. Not only did that set double as a pub, but also a music store, a house, a Hoover repair shop and much more. Without large changes of sets, they created these different environments with tables, chairs, and a change of lighting. Sam Cieri and Mackenzie Lesser-Roy were strong leads as Guy and Girl followed by an equally strong cast of characters. The simple staging of the show made the small moments usually missed by the audience, more exposed and made the show more emotional. Kudos to Steven Hoggett, the movement director, for flawlessly using movement to move the show along in an eye catching way. Overall, it was a beautifully written and performed musical, that I would see again if I had the chance and would recommend to friends!  (more...)

BWW Review: Brilliantly Funny SOMETHING ROTTEN! at The Fox TheatreBWW Review: Brilliantly Funny SOMETHING ROTTEN! at The Fox Theatre
by Chris Gibson - Feb 11, 2017

I know that some critics will probably refer to Monty Python's Flying Circus or the work of Mel Brooks when they try to explain the appeal of SOMETHING ROTTEN!. There are some similarities to both, but the fact is, this show (book by Karey Kirkpatrick and John O'Farrell with Music and Lyrics by Wayne and Karey Kirkpatrick) is actually something uniquely original. Sure a lot of contemporary musicals have taken the opportunity to crack wise while parodying musical theatre tropes before, but never as thoroughly and hilariously. The current touring show at The Fox Theatre is just great fun, and I highly recommend that you attend! (more...)

BWW Review: SOMETHING ROTTEN! Parodies GeniusBWW Review: SOMETHING ROTTEN! Parodies Genius
by Dylan Shaffer - Feb 1, 2017

The Renaissance was an era of rebirth, new ideas, and particularly in Elizabethan England, grand works of literature. Out of this era produced the cat's meow of writing, the overshadowing Bard, William Shakespeare, but what history doesn't quite tell us is that there were two other great writers of the day. Arguably, Nick and Nigel Bottom's words could compare only to those of Shakespeare's quill. Add in some spectacle, a soothsayer, and tap dancing and the musical Something Rotten! is born. (more...)
