BWW Reviews: New Line Theatre Presents Rockin' Production of CRY-BABY
by Chris Gibson - Mar 6, 2012

CRY-BABY is a smash, a musical and cultural send up of drape and square mores, while at the same time, a parody of the typical "boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back" scenarios that we've all been exposed to in more traditional shows. At times, it's like watching a throwdown between Little Richard and Pat Boone over who really sings "Good Golly, Miss Molly" the best and most authentic. And, at other times, it's a completely over the top take off on shows of the past. For some reason, I was reminded of both The Music Man and West Side Story. Scott Miller and New Line Theatre have once again given us something outside the norm, and it's a joyous ride. This revision of CRY-BABY (I confess, I didn't see it on Broadway) is a sheer delight, full of characters and situations from the movie by filmmaker John Waters, but also standing on its own with a clever and hilarious score (music and lyrics by David Javerbaum and Adam Schlesinger), having jettisoned the tunes from the film itself. Go see this play now. It's wonderfully directed, smartly choreographed, and marvelously acted. (more...)

A Comfortable Performance: Let There Be Love
by Daniel Collins - Feb 23, 2010

Avery Brooks, particularly in his TV parts, often plays a smooth customer. Some roles exhibit this more than others, though as Alfred in 'Let There Be Love,' he's a Scrooge-before-the-Ghosts...but that doesn't mean he isn't smooth. This natural actor's comfort in every role he inhabits translates into a wonderful night of theater for the audience. (more...)
