BWW Reviews: World Premiere Comedy IT'S THE BIZ Pokes Fun at Hollywood in the 80's
by Shari Barrett - Oct 21, 2013

Nearly everyone who lives in Los Angeles is fascinated with the entertainment industry and wants to somehow be a part of it. To the outsider, show business is the sexiest, most glamorous of pursuits.

BWW Interviews: THE BOOK OF MORMON Percussionist Giancarlo de Trizio
by Heidi Scheuermann - Oct 15, 2013

How many times have you gone to see a theatrical production, and you are blown away by the music? I speak for myself when I say the music is what makes these productions so great, so emotional, so memorable. Believe it or not, folks, those are real people with some really incredible talent in that orchestra pit who don't always get the recognition they deserve. Without the orchestra, we lose those big bang musical numbers, the sound effects, and mood of each and every scene. I recently had the privilege of speaking with one of these musicians who is currently playing percussion on tour with one of the most popular shows out there, THE BOOK OF MORMON. (more...)

Glee-Cap: Puppet Master.
by Robert Lawlor - Nov 28, 2013

You know when I was sitting around with my family having dinner, in between passing dishes and pies, I thought - you know what would make this a better Thanksgiving? Puppets and What Does the Fox Say! I mean, come on - you can't have Thanksgiving without puppets and weird YouTube sensations singing about the sounds a fox makes. So, tonight, we are grateful for Glee and ponder the question - what does the Gleek say? Mr. Schue is stuck working on things, so Blaine takes over glee club, and the glee clubbers are less than pleased with Blaine's ideas, causing Blaine to exit dramatically. Kurt presents Pamela Lansbury with their first gig at Callbacks, while the rest of the group is not feeling the idea of it, Kurt is not listening. Imagining the perfect scenario, Kurt imagines Pamela Lansbury [with himself at the helm] singing 'Into the Groove' to a sold out crowd. Kurt and Blaine talk it up about the glee club rebellion of Blaine, which Kurt attributes to the idea they may find him controlling, which Blaine doesn't understand. (more...)

Glee-Cap: The Untitled Rachel Berry Project.
by Robert Lawlor - May 13, 2014

And here we are, Gleeks - about to bring the curtain down on season five, and what it season it has been - graduations, swan songs, Broadway openings, engagements, and everything in between. Strike up the orchestra for the eleven o'clock number, as we kiss season five goodbye. Mister Conductor, if you please! Rachel gears up to meet the writer of his TV project, who is planning to crash the Monday dinner tradition where Sam and Mercedes are also gearing up for big chances for themselves. Brittany shocks everyone by coming for a visit after getting Tom Hanks-ed on an island after losing her passport. The writer for Rachel's project arrives and proves to be more unique than Rachel was anticipating. Mercedes heads out on a mall tour with Brittany as her back up dancer, and Artie filming the whole thing to document the big event. Mercedes hits the stage and performs her brand new single - "Shakin My Head" for her adoring mall going public, which includes Sam there for support. June and Blaine meet for rehearsal for the upcoming showcase, and Blaine's guilt about lying to Kurt rears its head, but June refuses to hear it. Blaine's guilt leads him to belt out some "All of Me" by John Legend, when Kurt arrives to surprise him with lunch, when the truth comes out, and Kurt gets upset about being lied to and storms out.

BWW Reviews: On-Stage Rapport Shines in CT Rep's THE SUNSHINE BOYS
by Lauren Yarger - Jun 26, 2014

More impressive than two good actors doing what they do best, however, is how Ruiz, pictured right with Kline, fits perfectly in to the mix. He has stood out in roles at CT Rep's My Fair Lady, The Music Man and Man of LaMancha as well as in Yale Rep'sAmerican Night, but really shines here. He conveys real affection for his uncle, admiration for Al and somehow manages to be engaging without getting in the way of the veterans. (more...)
