BWW Review: Feel-Good KINKY BOOTS at The 5th Avenue Theatre is Fun-Filled and FabulousBWW Review: Feel-Good KINKY BOOTS at The 5th Avenue Theatre is Fun-Filled and Fabulous
by Amelia Reynolds - May 2, 2016

Picture it: New York City; the year, 2002. A wide-eyed, Broadway first timer awaiting her first celebrity signature after a production of "Hairspray" felt a deep connection with the raspy-voiced actor when he looked me dead in the eye and apologized for his dry sharpie. With one "Darling, I'm so sorry," I felt connected to something that felt so distant to me before. I was probably the only 10-year-old at my elementary school who was a Harvey Fierstein fan (specifically for "Mrs. Doubtfire" and "La Cage aux Folle"). Little did I know that at that exact moment, my love for Broadway would be inextricably linked to my love for drag, so a drag production based on a book written by Harvey Fierstein should be a no-brainer. Throw in a score written by Cindy Lauper and you have a show that had far to fall for me if done incorrectly. Thankfully, "Kinky Boots" at The 5th Avenue Theatre was as fabulous as I hoped it would be. (more...)

BWW Review: It's a Pleasure Getting to Know Lyric Opera's THE KING AND IBWW Review: It's a Pleasure Getting to Know Lyric Opera's THE KING AND I
by Rachel Weinberg - May 2, 2016

Under the direction of Lee Blakeley at Lyric Opera (who originally staged this production for Paris's Theatre du Chatelet in 2014), Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic musical THE KING AND I is heightened to the lavish and beautiful spectacle it deserves. This story of British school teacher Anna Leonowens who arrives in Siam to instruct the many children of the King has moments of sweeping grandiosity but also many of emotional intimacy-the Lyric's production makes the full emotional arc a delight to watch. Visually, the creative team captures every inch of the musical's opulence. Sue Blane's costume designs are breathtakingly elaborate and incorporate an inspiring display of color; Anna's magnificent hoop skirts are definitely a highlight. Jean-March Puissant's set design also captures the grandiosity of a royal palace with many intricate details, while also giving the performers the space they need to execute Peggy Hickey's choreography, and Rick Fisher's lighting adds to the decadent atmosphere.
