by Toronto Newsdesk - Mar 12, 2014

After 10 months of playing in the frigid cold of Toronto, Canada, our cast of The Wizard of Oz began a touring experience that currently has us situated in Costa Mesa, California. I had no idea it was so warm here, even in winter. The joy of packing all of my winter clothes into a box in middle of January is comparable to a second Christmas morning. It's my first national tour, and I've picked up a few tips and experiences I'd love to share with you over the coming weeks. For starters, let me tell you a bit about what I do in the show!

BWW Reviews: Strong Cast and Inventive Stagecraft Buoys Slow-Going STARCATCHER
by Veronica Bruscini - Feb 26, 2014

PETER AND THE STARCATCHER has all the right ingredients to be a standout production: a solid literary foundation and engaging storyline, a top-notch cast of actors, and some truly inventive props and staging. Unfortunately, these elements never quite come together as cohesively as they should, and the overall presentation suffers from the script's lack of consistent focus. (more...)

BWW Reviews: WICKED Flies High in Austin Due to Outstanding Supporting Cast
by Jeff Davis - Feb 26, 2014

Wicked certainly has an interesting reputation among theatergoers. Some theater fanatics love the show. Others hate it. I've always found myself somewhere in the middle. Wicked certainly has both flaws and merits, but to those who only see its flaws, I have this observation to share. Of all the long running shows currently on Broadway, there are only three that feature more than one female lead. Of those three shows, only one involves female leads who aren't merry murderesses and aren't singing ABBA tunes. So kudos to Wicked, and kudos to the touring production currently in Austin for making it easier to see the shows merits and more difficult to see the show's flaws. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Tricky New WIZARD OF OZ Storms Into the OC
by Michael L. Quintos - Feb 18, 2014

During my first taste of the show last fall, I was certainly wowed by its technical wizardry and its talented cast, but was sadly underwhelmed by how much of the original film's stirring, emotional magic and innocent fantasy had been stripped away in favor of easy, high-camp laughs, dazzling onstage visual effects, and head-scratching staging choices. I think perhaps a small part of me had hoped that a few alterations have been enacted into the tour now that it has arrived an hour south in Costa Mesa months since that L.A. premiere. Alas, no.... the very same show (except for a cast change or two) is now playing at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Orange County through February 23. (more...)

BWW Reviews: CCT's THE WIZARD OF OZ Pays Homage to Iconic Film
by Charles Edward - Apr 19, 2014

From the moment you hear the first iconic strains of Arlen and Harburg's OZ score, you know you're not in Kansas anymore. Under the musical direction of Jeff Hamm, the score of Columbus Children's Theatre's current production of THE WIZARD OF OZ rarely sounded so good. The orchestra is balanced and well-equipped to handle the nostalgic nuances necessary when an audience knows every note by heart. Fear not, they never miss a beat. Indeed, every moment of the show is meant to stir a nostalgic memory of the 1939 MGM film. (more...)
