BWW Review: Powerful and Talented Musical Revue Will Make You ROAR
by Ilana Lifshitz - Mar 31, 2017

ROAR, standing for "Rock On American Resurrection," roared to life Thursday at its opening night at the Crown City Theatre Company in North Hollywood.

IRVINE, Calif., April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ Honey-baked ham, bunnies, candy, and festive family egg hunts are commonly associated with Easter, but this Christian holiday rests squarely on one thing: the historical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. If that event didn't happen, then, as St. Paul says, "Christians are of all [people] most to be pitied." That is, if Christianity's claims are false, the Christian faith is futile, and the entire Christian enterprise loses all meaning. St. Paul also said that all that would remain in the face of a cold and unpredictable existence is to, "Eat, drink and be merry." But what if the resurrection actually happened? (more...)

They are rarely what might be called small or minimalist and it would be tricky for any theater to do minimalist versions of most of them. These are shows that often have the word “big” attached to them and for a smaller sized theater with somewhat  limited resources to attempt one of these big shows is an ambitious effort. Jewel Box Theatre is currently trying to do just that with a fully staged production of one of these shows, South Pacific, and the attempt ends up with highly mixed results. (more...)
