BWW Review: Kevin Smith Kirkwood Embodies Whitney Houston In Dazzling CLASSIC WHITNEY: ALIVE! at Joe's Pub
by Troy Frisby - Sep 8, 2016

Arriving on stage in a tear-away USA tracksuit to wow the crowd with 'The Star-Spangled Banner,' Kevin Smith Kirkwood looked every bit the part of Whitney Houston in the return of CLASSIC WHITNEY: ALIVE! at Joe's Pub on August 31. But as everyone knows, a diva is more than just clothes (although the jumpsuit underneath was admittedly stunning as well). In less adept hands, the show's concept--- that Houston came down on a cloud for a repeat performance--- might have felt awkward or, worse, exploitative. Fortunately, Kirkwood, who is no stranger to glam and larger-than-life performers following his run in KINKY BOOTS, truly embodied the late icon on every level. Opening the show, he addressed the audience with a coy, 'Ladies and gentlemen, it's so good to be back.' (more...)

The Grove Theatre is excited to announce an Evening of Comedy* with Pauly Shore, and featuring Steve Simeone, on Saturday, September 24th at 8:00 pm.  Comic Josh Martin will open the night. Pauly Shore tasted super-stardom in 1990 when his precedent-setting MTV show 'Totally Pauly' hit the airwaves with major fan approval.  The show ran for six years, leading him to roles on numerous television and film shows, including the one-hour HBO television special, 'Pauly Does Dallas.' Pauly then went on to star in and produce his own projects including 'Pauly Shore is Dead' for 20th Century Fox, as well as 'Adopted,' 'Vegas is My Oyster,' and 'Pauly-Tics' for Showtime.  He also starred in the films 'Encino Man,' 'Son In Law', 'Jury Duty,' 'In the Army Now,' and 'Bio Dome.'  He also experienced success with his albums. After his first album, 'The Future of America,' was named Best Comedy Album by the college music journalists in 1991, the National Association of Record Merchandisers nominated his second album, 'Scraps from the Future' for a Best Sellers Award.  (more...)

BWW Review: Smoothly Revised RECORDED IN HOLLYWOOD Returns to LA at Kirk Douglas Theatre
by Don Grigware - Jul 18, 2016

The name of the game in show biz is never to settle for greatness, but rather to go that extra mile and make it better. Such is the case with Recorded in Hollywood. In its transferal from a smaller Hollywood space to the Kirk Douglas Theatre,  the show provides a book by Matt Donnelly and Jamelle Dolphin that opens up even more than before to tell the true story of record producer John Dolphin. The story takes place from 1948 to 1958 in South Central, Los Angeles, when blacks were arrested for the slightest infractions of the law. Since I did not see the initial production, I am basing my opinions on this newer version. It is slick, a very slick show with a dynamic, triple threat ensemble headed by Stu James, directed superbly by Denise Dowse and choreographed to the max by Cassie Crump. The bad feature is that it only runs through August 7. (more...)
