BWW Review: The Con is On with DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS at Musical Theatre West
by Michael L. Quintos - Jul 20, 2016

The con is on! With plenty of wit, charm, and double entendres galore, Musical Theatre West's new regional production of the 2004 Broadway musical comedy 'DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS' is one enjoyably silly romp. The show which features a book by Jeffrey Lane and music and lyrics by David Yazbeck continues its final weekend at the Carpenter Center for the Performing Arts in Long Beach through July 24. Based on the 1998 film comedy starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, the stage adaptation eventually garnered 11 Tony nominations during its run. For MTW's fun new local revival, the title roles---a couple of con men who've taken to swindling the riches off of easily-seduced women in the French Riviera---are embodied by stage vets Davis Gaines (now a multiple fixture at MTW) and the incredibly funny Benjamin Schrader (The Book of Mormon).

BWW Reviews: WICKED National Tour Continues to Defy Belief at The Hobby Center
by Bryan-Keyth Wilson - Jul 20, 2016

The magical question is, how do you keep a musical relevant and box office worthy in this day and age when rapping forefathers capture the masses? My answer is, if it ain't broke, then don't fix it. This show evolves in every way, from the music, movement, costume and make-up design we are taken on a magical journey. (more...)

by Guest Blogger: Michael Hartung - Jul 12, 2016

I can't even tell you how many times I have had a conversation that goes something like this: 'Why do I do this?' As an actor this can feel like a hard question to answer.

BWW Interview: Tradition, Tradition . . . and Innovation: Gary John La Rosa Directs FIDDLER at MSMT
by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Jul 11, 2016

'This is like a real homecoming. The last time I worked at Maine State Music Theatre was in 1995, and it was also Fiddler on the Roof,' says nationally acclaimed director-choreographer Gary John LaRosa. La Rosa, who is widely considered one of the reigning authorities on the beloved 1964 Bock-Harnick bitter-sweet musical about Russian Jews confronting a changing world, has in his own words, 'literally done dozens' of Fiddler productions throughout his vibrant, busy career. 'I've actually stopped counting,' he says with a Smile, though we note that among all these, he staged the 50th anniversary Fiddler gala on Broadway, as well as at least four of these won prestigious theatre awards and nominations. This month he finds himself in Brunswick, Maine, directing a thirty-six person cast in MSMT's third main stage show of the 2016 season. (more...)
