Paula Poundstone to Perform at PTPA, 10/18Paula Poundstone to Perform at PTPA, 10/18
by BWW News Desk - Sep 5, 2014

The Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts (PTPA) will present PAULA POUNDSTONE on Saturday, October 18th at 8:00 PM. 25 years ago Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country - stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. A high school drop-out, she went on to become one of the great humorists of our time. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR's popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me. She tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: 'Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.' Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: 'I peed my pants.' The Comedy of Paula Poundstone Saturday, October 18 at 8:00 PM Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts, 71 E. Main St., Patchogue, NY 11772 Tickets: $25-$45 + fee, available the box office, by phone 631-207-1313, or at www.patchoguetheatre.com. (more...)

BWW Reviews: GHOST THE MUSICAL Haunts the O.C.BWW Reviews: GHOST THE MUSICAL Haunts the O.C.
by Michael L. Quintos - Aug 9, 2014

On the surface, GHOST, the ultra-romantic 1990 Oscar-nominated box office hit, seems every bit the perfect motion picture to be repurposed into a flashy stage musical. Unfortunately, the musical that eventually emerged (now playing at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts through August 10) is a chaotic, schizophrenic melange of random adult contemporary pop rock songs intermixed with an amped-up mystical mystery where the swoon-worthy aspects of the original gets diluted in favor of dazzling effects and abstract dance numbers. Why water down the romance? (more...)
