Andrew Lloyd Webber Is A Rebel Once More With SCHOOL OF ROCK
by Michael Dale - Nov 18, 2015

The iconic theatre composer who burst onto the scene with JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR has another hard-rock musical. If you weren't there in the early 1970s, when Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice sent JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR out into the world - first as a concept album and then as Broadway and West End productions - it may be difficult to imagine how infuriated a good many people were by their new show.

BWW Reviews: Actress/Singer CANDI MILO Slays at the Federal
by Don Grigware - Jun 30, 2015

On Sunday June 28, actress/singer Candi Milo brought her one.of.a.kind comedic cabaret to Sterling's Upstairs at the Federal and boy, oh boy, is she funny. 'How funny?' you may query. This little lady grew up in a mental institution - well, her father ran one in their home, so she was exposed to craziness at a tender age...and on top of that, she's Italian...and a voice-over artist who does many, many cartoon voices to amazing perfection, starting with Sweetie Pie. She was also a member of 'The Mighty Carson Art Players' on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. What fabulous improvisational training! So it's no surprise that the lady knows how to get a laugh. Humor comes gushing out of her the minute she opens her mouth, and it's never forced. It's all natural and with a multitude of sarcastic asides, it works deliciously on a cabaret stage. (more...)

BWW Reviews: MUSIC MAN Marches Melodically Onto Moonlight Stage
by Don Grigware - Jul 17, 2015

What do the 1950s have in common with 1912? Ages of innocence, both. When Meredith Willson wrote his story with Franklin Lacey about a con artist bamboozling an Iowa town in 1912, which formed the substance of his musical The Music Man (1957), the effect became like that of N. Richard Nash's The Rainmaker. People were jubilant, ecstatic and welcomed Professor Harold Hill, as they craved a good old-fashioned love story coated with ironic excitement. He was a charmer, and they saw way past his bad side. Now in a spirited new production at Moonlight Amphitheatre, Vista , the company pulls out all the stops and yet presents a delightfully down.to.earth show that keeps the flavor of Meredith Willson in tact. With fast-paced direction from John Vaughn and a splendid cast led by David Engel as Hill , The Music Man offers an unrealistic yet refreshing look at the way life should be. (more...)

Meet the Stars of NYMF: Devin ILaw of WEARING BLACK
by Nora Dominick - Jul 12, 2015

New York Musical Theatre Festival is in full swing and BroadwayWorld has taken the time to sit down with some of the stars of this years NYMF musicals. Like any great art form, musical theatre is shaped by the events and philosophies of the day. The strength and vitality of musical theatre lie in its ability to stay fresh and relevant.

BWW Review: Promising New Pre-Broadway Musical EMPIRE Debuts in La Mirada
by Michael L. Quintos - Jan 27, 2016

It's no surprise that a palpable, uproarious reception greeted the opening night performance of EMPIRE - THE MUSICAL, a brand new stage show featuring book, music, and lyrics by Caroline Sherman and Robert Hull---currently having its 'out-of-town' premiere at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts through February 14, 2016. Directed and choreographed by Tony Award nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge (RAGTIME), this ambitious new original musical---advertised with declared aspirations for an eventual engagement on Broadway---fashions an early 20th Century era, multi-character narrative about the construction of one of the world's most iconic skyscrapers: the Empire State Building in New York City. The good news? It's exceedingly entertaining. The not-so-good news? It's a show with lots of potential but needs a lot more tinkering and refining. (more...)

BWW Recap: Josh 'Ping-Pongs' with His Feelings Re: Liza's Age on S2E2 of YOUNGER
by Matt Smith - Jan 14, 2016

Episode 2 — the second of the season premiere double header — wastes no time in getting straight to the point, as we open, just like we did last episode, where the previous half-hour left off.  Caitlin confronts her mother about what she saw in the window of the tattoo studio, and Liza then decides it's time to come clean — that she's dating Josh; she decides to hold back on telling her daughter she's posing as 26 (which, for the record, Maggie agrees is also, at this time, for the better).  (more...)

BWW Review: Tony Winner Idina Menzel Leads National Tour of IF/THEN in Los Angeles
by Michael L. Quintos - Dec 14, 2015

As expected, Tony Award winner and Broadway superstar Idina Menzel drew thunderous applause a mere second into the the start of IF/THEN's opening night performance at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre last Wednesday night. It's no stretch then to say that her mere existence in this very same role she herself originated in the original Broadway production seems, above everything else, to be the immediate draw to the recently launched national tour now on stage at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood for a four week engagement through January 3, 2016. The bonus? She is joined onstage by her original co-stars LaChanze, Anthony Rapp, and James Snyder! (more...)
