BWW Review: Cute & Charming DIXIE SWIM CLUB is Bubbly Fun
by David Clarke - Mar 9, 2013

Comedies about Southern women talking are a Dime a Dozen. Most audiences cling to Robert Harling's STEEL MAGNOLIAS, imbued with healthy doses of both comedy and drama, as the quintessential Southern women play. However, Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten's DIXIE SWIM CLUB may start giving Robert Harling some competition. (more...)

BWW Reviews: MOON OVER BUFFALO is High on Slapstick but Low on Laughs
by Jeff Davis - Mar 31, 2013

Actress Maureen O'Hara once said, "Comedy is difficult, especially slapstick. The trick is to have fun while you're performing it." As much as I love Ms. O'Hara, there seem to be a few tricks she's ignored. Though it's clear that the cast of City Theatre's current production of Moon Over Buffalo is having fun, they are unable to make Ken Ludwig's mediocre screwball comedy take off. While pratfalls are a Dime a Dozen, laughs seem hard to come by. (more...)

Theatrical shows for children are a Dime a Dozen, but children's theater productions that can also please adults are as rare and unique as the musically inclined animals in The Bremen Town Musicians.

InDepth InterView: Blythe Danner Talks NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT, FOCKERS, Broadway, Hollywood & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Feb 16, 2013

Today we are talking to a notable presence on Broadway and in Hollywood who has appeared in countless celebrated entities - ranging from her Tony Award-winning work in BUTTERFLIES ARE FREE and in the original cast of Harold Pinter's BETRAYAL on Broadway along with dozens of other credits; to starring in feature films like THE PRINCE OF TIDES with Barbra Streisand, and, perhaps most famously the MEET THE FOCKERS franchise; to her newest star turn to date, that of featured player in the hit original Gershwin revue NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT - the elegant and accomplished Blythe Danner. Discussing various roles in a number of wide-ranging projects that she has taken on over the course of her idiosyncratic career thus far - such as memorable turns in four Woody Allen films (HUSBANDS & WIVES, ALICE, CRIMES & MISDEMEANORS and ANOTHER WOMAN) and the classic movie musical adaptation of 1776 all the way to her most recent work with Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller and the Fockers clan in the FOCKERS films as well as THE LUCKY ONE with Zac Efron, DETACHMENT with Adrien Brody, TV pilots and much more. Additionally, Danner shares memories of appearing in the 2001 revival of Stephen Sondheim & James Goldman's FOLLIES, as well as appearing on WILL & GRACE with recent InDepth InterView participant Eric McCormack. Most importantly, she offers her thoughts on NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT as an entertainment experience, Gershwin music in general, her co-stars Matthew Broderick and Kelli O'Hara, choreographer and director Kathleen Marshall as well as what drew her to the hit revue in the first place. All of that, working on one of 2012's most memorable films, DETACHMENT, collaborating with Ryan Murphy and Jonathan Groff on the daring (if ultimately unsuccessful) pilot for PRETTY/HANDSOME, thoughts on her daughter, Gwyneth Paltrow's Emmy-winning work on Glee and much, much more awaits in this career-spanning conversation!

by David Clarke - Feb 11, 2014

It seems that jukebox musicals made to appeal to my parents' generation are a Dime a Dozen these days. However, there is something truly special about Randy Johnson's A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN. His intimate theatrical portrait of the Queen of Rock from Port Arthur, Texas spent three sold-out years on the road before opening to rave reviews and enthusiastic crowds at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre on October 10, 2013. Even though the show just closed on February 9, its magic and energy has been preserved by Broadway Records on A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN (Original Broadway Cast Recording). (more...)

Nashville's FUNNY Fannys: Catherine Mai Holder of Keeping Scores' FUNNY GIRL
by Jeffrey Ellis - Apr 17, 2011

In the upcoming Keeping Scores' concert version of Funny Girl, set for April 29-May 1 at Boiler Room Theatre, director Scott Logsdon has cast 12 different, yet very funny and somehow uniquely qualified actresses to take on the iconic role of Fanny Brice. First brought to national, then international, acclaim by the legendary Barbra Streisand, the role of Fanny Brice is a coveted role among musical theater performers. Despite that, however, things offstage seem to be going swimmingly at rehearsals; meanwhile we attempt to ferret out any backstabbing and catfights - as well as introducing you to all the Funny Fannys, one-by-one. You've met Alex Maddox (who plays a prominent role in today's interview), Cori Laemmel and Corrie Miller, who are all my favorites, of course. Today, the spotlight falls on relative newcomer Catherine Mai Holder, who remains inscrutable and mysterious throughout her interview. Read on, dear ones, and see what you can deduce from this funny Fanny... (more...)

BWW Reviews: FAITH PRINCE Knows A Thing Or Two About Musical Comedy
by Michael L. Quintos - Apr 12, 2010

Faith Prince has a wonderful gift: she is that rare performer that can make you ache with laughter with a flick of an eyebrow or a scream of a line, then instantly make you sigh with melancholy with a heart-tugging ballad. That Fanny Brice-tinged bravado and uncompromising comedic timing, coupled with a full-bodied, bawdy vocal prowess, is why Ms. Prince's solo cabaret show is an entertainingly exciting live stage experience. The talented, Tony-winning Broadway star, who also juggles a healthy career in film and television, recently returned to the Orange County Performing Arts Center to close out the Center's 2009-2010 Cabaret series. Her set, which she spoke about in an interview with BroadwayWorld, is a 'Best of Faith Prince' showcase, in which she dips into many of her previous Cabaret offerings as well as offer new material that she debuted during the wonderfully zippy hour-and-fifteen minute set. Accompanied only by pianist and musical arranger Alex Rybeck, Prince commanded the stage and enraptured the opening night audience with a heartwarming set of jazz standards, Broadway favorites, rarely heard tunes, and some delightfully droll anecdotes from her career on the stage.

BWW Reviews: 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL is a Toe-Tapping Good Time
by David Clarke - Apr 1, 2013

Adaptations of feature films to stage musicals are a Dime a Dozen these days. However, if you want to get a Texas audience excited really quickly, tell them you're doing a musical based on the 1980 film 9 to 5 and that Dolly Parton has written the music and lyrics for the musical you're doing. You'll see a twinkle in the eye and a seat sold. Add in Patricia Resnick's book based on the film's screenplay, fantastic community talent from the Pearland area, and throw it all together inside a great space, and you've got a production of 9 TO 5: THE MUSICAL that is truly worth seeing.
