A 1930's tap dance spectacular that burst on to the New York Stage in 2010 as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival, Fingers & Toes opens the summer season at the Ivoryton Playhouse. A brand new work from Logan Medland, this mighty, mini musical combines snappy dialogue, catchy tunes and some of the fanciest dancing you'll see this year - high-energy tap routines that evoke the magic of the Fred Astaire - Ginger Rogers era. A deliriously delightful and genuinely funny love-letter to the old-fashioned backstage musical. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Entertaining Version of GREASE at The MUNYBWW Reviews: Entertaining Version of GREASE at The MUNY
by Chris Gibson - Aug 5, 2014

There have been a lot of versions of Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey's (book, music and lyrics) GREASE that I've seen over the years. Only one, New Line Theatre's brilliant staging a few years back, actually adhered to the musical as originally conceived. The majority have followed the template laid down by the 1978 movie version that was tailored to fit the stars; Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta. That's the version currently gracing the stage of The MUNY, although it features a number of interesting changes, beginning with a choral version of the opening "Alma Mater" that actually utilizes the lyrics to the song "We Go Together". It's certainly an entertaining ride, and is much improved in many ways over the version staged here back in 2007. (more...)

On opening night, when Corey Mach made his first appearance on stage in 'Flashdance The Musical,' the audience, after being prepped about his entrance by Gina Vernaci, Senior Vice President of Theater Operations, greeted him with a lengthy ovation. During the curtain call, the audience exploded in vocal and physical adoration when Mach came on stage.
