BWW Reviews: SoLuna Studio's XANADU
by Melissa Giordano - May 7, 2014

To see an all-out fun production like Xanadu is certainly a pleasure. The musical, currently running at Hauppauge's SoLuna Studio, is entertaining and the talented cast delivers in all its campy glory.

LEARN TO BE LATINA Plays Milagro Theatre, Now thru 5/31
by BWW News Desk - May 1, 2014

What would you do if you were told that you need to stop being how you are, looking how you look, and loving how you love? That your style of clothes, and the way you walk and talk are not good. Would you agree? You'll also be told what to do, how to dress and even how to love! Would you do that? It sounds unthinkable in our modern western society, where we have been told so often that being yourself is a Good Thing, right? Think again. Isn't that what we hear every time we turn the TV on or flip the pages of any magazine? 'You have to look like this!' 'You must do that!' We may not notice anything odd about this until we come across the smart, critical and satirical portrait of this reality framed in 'Learn to be Latina' by Enrique Urueta, playing at Milagro Theatre from today, May 1-31, 2014.
