BWW Review: Wicked Good WICKED at PPAC
by Andria Tieman - Sep 23, 2016

The musical WICKED is officially 12 years old, but it isn't showing its age in the slightest.  If anything, in the current political climate, the far away Land of OZ feels more real than ever, and the political issues that drive Elphaba to become The Wicked Witch, draw a spooky parallel with current news stories.  That's not to say that this show is all doom and gloom, but rather just an incredibly smart prequel to the much-loved Wizard of Oz with some of the catchiest and most powerful songs ever.  Marry an excellent story with a phenomenally talented cast, fantastic sets and a powerful orchestra and you have a production that continues to amaze even through multiple viewings.  The national tour of Wicked has resulted in nearly 17 million people watching this show, and it's a pretty safe bet that most of those people would like to see it again.

BWW Review: THE MERCHANT OF VENICE Trades Up And Pays Off
by Herbert Paine - Oct 24, 2016

Southwest Shakespeare Company's second offering of its 23rd Season is THE MERCHANT OF VENICE and it is, to use the Bard's words, a palpable hit.

All three pieces - danced by 2 Faced Dance's all-male company - explore human choice and our decision to take flight or fight the darker side of humanity.

BWW TV Exclusive: BROADWAY SESSIONS Gets A Little Bit WICKED
by Ben Cameron - Aug 15, 2016

WICKED!!!! You tingled didn't you? It's hard not to. No modern musical has had quite the impact that this mega musical has had all over the world.
