InDepth InterView: Ricki Lake On DANCING WITH THE STARS, Sondheim, ANNIE, WICKED, HAIRSPRAY & More
by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 24, 2011

With one of the most refreshingly unique career trajectories in recent show business history, the quirky late-80s/early-90s film star known for her outlandish John Waters comedies - HAIRSPRAY, CRY-BABY and SERIAL MOM included - parlayed her big screen success to a decade-long running eponymous talk-show in the 90s and early 00s that is still talked about to this day - look no further than Nicki Minaj's verse on the remix of Britney Spears' "Hold It Against Me" for proof - and, now, with news of the 2012 syndicated return of a new iteration of her show, a new memoir, as well as her current compelling casting on the new season of DANCING WITH THE STARS, Ricki Lake has clearly reached a new career high. Imparting her contagious energy and enthusiasm and amply displaying why she is the foremost queen of gab, Lake generously shares her thoughts on a range of topics - Broadway, Hollywood, GLEE, Sondheim, BOOK OF MORMON and much more included - and reveals details about her many upcoming projects and passion, as well as her ongoing star turn on TV's hottest reality competition, DANCING WITH THE STARS. While in rehearsal on Friday night, talking to me from the backstage costume fitting for DANCING/STARS - tutu included - and on the road back to her LA home - before attending Chaz Bono's party later that evening - Lake and I cover it all and she shows why she has been a TV fixture in millions of homes for twenty years and most likely will continue to be so for the next twenty or more - if we are lucky, that is. Plus, she also happens to be a big BroadwayWorld fan, to boot! Who could ask for anything more? (more...)

REVIEW: Cute WINTER WONDERETTES brings Holiday Cheer to Laguna Playhouse (11/28 - 12/30)
by Michael L. Quintos - Nov 30, 2009

LAGUNA BEACH, CA-With the holidays upon us, the arrival of aptly-themed shows also permeate the theatrical landscape. And like tinsel, egg-nog and Santa, perennial traditions are still what most people crave, especially in these unknowing, unstable times. Hummable, familiar holiday tunes are always a crowd-pleaser, so it's no surprise that WINTER WONDERETTES (now playing at the Laguna Playhouse through December 30) delivers a pleasantly cheerful, though altogether a routine, by-the-numbers, jukebox musical. Tied neatly with a pretty bow, the show is packaged precisely to induce just the right amount of laughs and to entertain enough to fill its audience with yuletide giddiness, without bombarding us with pesky heavy themes or intrusive thought-provoking lessons. Much like the show that preceded it, the holiday-themed sequel to Roger Bean's off-Broadway hit The Marvelous Wonderettes is cute, adorable, cheery and exactly the kind of safe, holiday entertainment that is as tried and true as its music. It is by no means a groundbreaking piece of theater, but judging from the laughter and ovations bestowed by its opening night audience, this show certainly entertains. (more...)

SOUND OFF SPECIAL EDITION: GLEE, The Broadway Bowl
by Pat Cerasaro - Feb 7, 2011

With the biggest budget in the history of the mega-hit GLEE - all-too-befitting of the post-Super Bowl expectation-heavy extravaganza, whatever the network or entity - how did the highly-awaited return of the hottest show on TV fare in its raptly anticipated - making the most vociferous among the gleeks near-rapacious - super-duper Sunday special edition and how did it score across the board? How does it measure up to the massively successful Season One and the best of the best of the rest? What about side-by-side with Season Two? See why 'The Sue Sylvester Shuffle' was a Super Bowl stunner or a lamentable loser of a let-down in this play-by-play recap of the biggest (ostensibly) Broadway-related event of 2011 - at least until the Tony Awards in the Spring; not counting SPIDER-MAN (but that isn't a 'musical' anyway, right?). See who scored big and see if anyone fumbled - and who, at the end of the game, made the stadium truly rock. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Revamped Broadway-Bound JEKYLL & HYDE Makes Hollywood Debut
by Michael L. Quintos - Feb 20, 2013

Now in the final stretches of its 25-week national tour before ultimately making its sit-down Broadway transfer later this Spring, the brand-new, revamped revival of JEKYLL & HYDE - THE MUSICAL has finally returned to Southern California for the next few weeks, this time playing performances at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood through March 3. Although this loud, Vegas-style reboot's changes are swathed in good intentions, very little---not even its trio of impressively talented lead singers---can truly eradicate the show's laughably grandiose histrionics, its weak book, and that inescapable cheese-factor.

BWW Reviews: CATS national tour at TPAC
by Jeffrey Ellis - Apr 2, 2011

Cats is best viewed through fresh eyes, probably, when the wonder of the spectacle is first encountered. The show's technical wizardry, in its time mind-boggling and perhaps even revolutionary, is now old hat (although I can certainly let go of my own cynicism long enough to appreciate the very theatricality of the show) and expected. But, imagine if you will, if you know nothing about the show at all and you settle into your seat and give yourself over to the experience. Chances are - no matter how worldly or sophisticated you are - you'll find yourself just a little awestruck by Cats. It remains an important milestone in musical theater history, despite the derision of theater Snobs the world over. (more...)
