BWW Reviews: Theatre Under the Stars' Humphreys School of Musical Theatre's XANADU Shows Off Talented Youths
by David Clarke - Sep 15, 2013

Theatre Under the Stars' (TUTS) Humphreys School of Musical Theatre (HSMT) introduced Houston, Texas to the 2007 stage musical adaptation of XANADU this weekend. The musical film Xanadu opened to mixed-to-negative reviews and audience responses in 1980, but over the interceding years has gained a cult following. However, from its release, the film's soundtrack has been a commercial success. It contains five Top 20 singles and was certified Double Platinum in the US. The musical adaption retains Electric Light Orchestra's original pop songs written for the film, featuring music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar. Douglas Carter Beane stepped in to write the book for the musical, and added a pair of "evil" muses as a plot twist. For the musical, the creative team pieced together a tacky, self-indulgent, and self-referential one act that despite a talented cast is uninteresting and bland. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Sindrome da Musical, tutti i Frattini al prezzo di uno
by Nino Prattico - Nov 26, 2013

SINDROME DA MUSICAL, lo spettacolo con protagonista Manuel Frattini, reduce dal successo della scorsa stagione, ha debuttato per la prima volta nella Capitale - il 21 novembre, al Teatro Parioli - e tornera a grande richiesta al Teatro della Luna di Milano l'1 dicembre per poi proseguire il suo tour in altre citta della penisola. Lo spettacolo, un one man show scritto da Lena Biolcati e diretto da Alfonso Lambo, ruota intorno alla figura di Frattini (nel ruolo di se stesso) che - posseduto dai 'suoi' personaggi - decide su consiglio dei colleghi/amici di rivolgersi ad una psicologa per trovare una cura alla diagnosticata 'sindrome da musical.' Grazie a questa introspezione piscologica ripercorriamo i punti salienti della carriera di Manuel: dal debutto televisivo, al debutto teatrale in 'A Chorus Line' e cosi via fino all'ultimo spettacolo (Sindrome da Musical, appunto). La terapia fa effetto, ma proprio mentre il grigio della quotidianita sta per prendere il sopravvento sul protagonista, anche i suoi compagni - insieme con la dottoressa - vengono 'infettati' dalla sindrome… non grave ma molto, molto contagiosa! Il testo di Lena Biolcati - divertente e 'leggero' - e il pre-testo per mettere insieme le musiche che hanno fatto da colonna sonora alla vita di Frattini e - pur risultando forzato in determinati punti (non tutti i passaggi da parlato a cantato avvengono con naturalezza) - ha il pregio di essere politically correct e confezionato con buon gusto. Lo stesso dicasi della regia di Alfonso Lambo, accurata ma non sempre scorrevole (il primo atto fa fatica a decollare; gli interventi video, seppur spassosi, a lungo andare rallentano e smorzano l'attenzione del pubblico).
