BWW Review: Garden Theatre's Exceptional BONNIE & CLYDE Cast Makes the Most of Mediocre MaterialBWW Review: Garden Theatre's Exceptional BONNIE & CLYDE Cast Makes the Most of Mediocre Material
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 16, 2016

There is much to love about the Garden Theatre's production of Frank Wildhorn's musical BONNIE & CLYDE; the cast is breathtakingly talented, the set, lighting, and costume designs are gorgeous, and the live (unseen) band is pitch perfect. Unfortunately, there is one major thing not to love about Frank Wildhorn's musical BONNIE & CLYDE, and that is Frank Wildhorn's musical BONNIE & CLYDE. (more...)

BWW Review: Kevin Smith Kirkwood Embodies Whitney Houston In Dazzling CLASSIC WHITNEY: ALIVE! at Joe's PubBWW Review: Kevin Smith Kirkwood Embodies Whitney Houston In Dazzling CLASSIC WHITNEY: ALIVE! at Joe's Pub
by Troy Frisby - Sep 8, 2016

Arriving on stage in a tear-away USA tracksuit to wow the crowd with 'The Star-Spangled Banner,' Kevin Smith Kirkwood looked every bit the part of Whitney Houston in the return of CLASSIC WHITNEY: ALIVE! at Joe's Pub on August 31. But as everyone knows, a diva is more than just clothes (although the jumpsuit underneath was admittedly stunning as well). In less adept hands, the show's concept--- that Houston came down on a cloud for a repeat performance--- might have felt awkward or, worse, exploitative. Fortunately, Kirkwood, who is no stranger to glam and larger-than-life performers following his run in KINKY BOOTS, truly embodied the late icon on every level. Opening the show, he addressed the audience with a coy, 'Ladies and gentlemen, it's so good to be back.' (more...)

BWW Review: Keala Settle Lets Her Astonishing Singing Speak For Itself in Solo Debut with Frank Wildhorn at BirdlandBWW Review: Keala Settle Lets Her Astonishing Singing Speak For Itself in Solo Debut with Frank Wildhorn at Birdland
by Casey Mink - Aug 29, 2016

Keala Settle has made a name for herself in the Broadway landscape due diligently portraying supporting roles, be it the bigoted Shirley in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Norma in 2013's Hands on a Hardbody (a show-stopping performance for which she earned a Tony nomination), or the affectionate but no-nonsense best friend in Waitress, her current gig. However, in her solo concert debut at Birdland on August 22, singing the music of Frank Wildhorn, who also accompanied her performance, Settle valiantly demonstrated she is no mere sidekick.
