Review - Hero: Do You Hear The Korean People Sing?Review - Hero: Do You Hear The Korean People Sing?
by Ben Peltz - Aug 29, 2011

Though Hero: The Musical, is being pushed as, 'the first Korean Broadway-style musical to be shown overseas,' it's really of a theatrical style firmly rooted in the West End. Commissioned to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the death of Korean freedom fighter, An Chunggun, Hero comes off at best as a well-intentioned imitation of the power-ballad heavy pop operas of Broadway's British invasion, frequently reminiscent of the revolutionary sexiness of Les Miserables and the military pageantry scenes of Miss Saigon.

BWW Reviews: LES MISERABLES at the 5th Avenue TheatreBWW Reviews: LES MISERABLES at the 5th Avenue Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Aug 27, 2011

There's really nothing like the first time you see one of your favorite shows. The first time I saw "Hairspray" I leapt to my feet on the final note. The first time I saw "West Side Story" I was on the edge of my seat for these tragic lovers. And the first time I saw "Les Miserables" I wept through the entire thing. There really is nothing like the first time. And the 5th Avenue's current touring production of "Les Miserables" is really nothing like my first time. With its complete lack of subtlety and heart, the only thing it has going for it is the amazing voices singing these wonderful songs. (more...)

FLASH FRIDAY: ANYTHING GOES Any Which WayFLASH FRIDAY: ANYTHING GOES Any Which Way
by Pat Cerasaro - Aug 26, 2011

Today, as a corollary column to this week's rave SOUND OFF review of the brand new 2011 cast recording of the revival of Anything Goes starring Sutton Foster and Joel Grey, playing on Broadway eight times a week at the Stephen Sondheim Theater, we have a host of clips from the various versions of Cole Porter's finest score and many examples of the countless iterations of the show that have been performed since its Broadway premiere in 1934 at the Alvin Theater (now the Neil Simon), originally starring the legendary Ethel Merman. With clips from the 1936, 1954 and 1956 film versions, as well as plenty of performance footage from the many revivals over the years - as well as a few surprises - we cover anything and everything Anything Goes and trace its path over the years every which way it has gone. Patti LuPone to Leslie Uggams to Elaine Paige to Sally Ann Triplett to Sutton Foster; Frank Sinatra and Bert Lahr to Howard McGillen to John Barrowman to Joel Grey and Colin Donnell and far beyond - today's FLASH FRIDAY is simply - well - the tip-top!

SOUND OFF: ANYTHING GOES 2011SOUND OFF: ANYTHING GOES 2011
by Pat Cerasaro - Aug 25, 2011

A powerhouse of a performer like Sutton Foster comes along only once a generation or so - the last of her likes on these shores was undoubtedly grande dame EVITA diva Patti LuPone and, across the pond, original EVITA and CATS headliner and current FOLLIES revival star, Elaine Paige - and in her debut lead performance in THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE more than ten years ago Ms. Foster set Broadway babies' hearts aflutter and tongues a-wagging with her steam train take on the title role and nabbed a well-earned Best Actress Tony Award for her considerable efforts. After that, starring roles in LITTLE WOMEN, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN and SHREK followed - as well as a stupendous turn in the Encores! ANYONE CAN WHISTLE opposite Raul Esparza and Donna Murphy - but it was not until this very last season on Broadway that Sutton Foster truly received her shot to tap, strut, belt and, well, blow, in the old big Broadway Diva fashion. Make that even more to the point - in true Ethel Merman fashion. The new Tony on her mantle bespeaks Sutton's power in the theater, yet what about on the fresh new 2011 Broadway revival recording out this week on PS CLASSICS? And, what about her co-stars like Oscar-winner Joel Grey, Broadway stalwarts John McMartin and Adam Godley and the newer generation of Broadway hoofers like Colin Donnell, Jessica Stone and Laura Osnes? Come on aboard the S.S. Broadway World and find out for yourself! (more...)
