BWW Reviews: Sadly A FUNNY THING HAPPENED  On the Way to Being Funny at SMTBWW Reviews: Sadly A FUNNY THING HAPPENED On the Way to Being Funny at SMT
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(4/13/2015) - Sondheim's "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" has been a go to for theaters for years. It's big and loud and can be a crowd pleaser. But should it be? Yes, it can be a very funny show if it's done right. But, as is the case with Seattle Musical Theatre's current production, when it's not done right it can be a plodding mess.


BWW Reviews: STAGEright's Minimalist INTO THE WOODS Alive with CharacterBWW Reviews: STAGEright's Minimalist INTO THE WOODS Alive with Character
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(4/13/2015) - All too often in musical theater the performers have pretty voices but do the standard "park and bark" and just belt out those tunes with no character or story behind it. Such is not the case with the 12 person ensemble of STAGEright's current production of "Into the Woods" who not only sang the Sondheim score beautifully but also managed a ton of both comedic and dramatic timing to actually convey their characters (many of whom had multiple characters) making this one of the best productions I've seen.
