It's hard to believe The Book of Mormon is already on making its 4th return to Denver. Since premiering its tour in Denver in 2012, the mega-hit returned in 2013 and 2015, yet it's still one of the hottest tickets.And are we really surprised?BWW Review: THE SECRET GARDEN at Performance Now June 30, 2018

Musicals generally give me all kinds of feels, but Passing Strange hit me deep. Give me an existential journey and I'm totally on board, but present it the way this musical does, and it could change the way you look at your own life.BWW Review: Arvada's SUNDAY IN THE PARK Connects All The Dots April 19, 2018
It takes a bit of push to get me to attend more classical works of musical theatre. I didn't grow up with the movies, so the nostalgia is a little lost on me. That being said, I was excited to see the tour of the Lincoln Center's recent production of The King and I, which nabbed a Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.BWW Review: WAITRESS Is Filled With the Right Ingredients December 22, 2017
Rent was one of the first musicals I truly loved. My affinity for musicals didn't start as early as a lot of theatre people I know. I first picked up Rent in junior high, a 2-disc set from the library. I'd borrow it over and over until I learned all the words. Rent is the reason why angsty rock musicals will forever be my niche.BWW Review: BDT's ROCK OF AGES is Hot Shredded Cheese October 31, 2017
Hot. Shredded. Cheese. You know what I'm talking about. That gooey kind that stretches from the plate to your mouth, and you just can't get enough. That's how BDT Stage's current '80s jukebox musical Rock of Ages feels.BWW Review: SOMETHING ROTTEN Definitely Isn't October 24, 2017
Sometimes I wait to pay attention to a certain musical until I can experience it fully. That was the case with Something Rotten!, currently on tour playing the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. I've been impatiently avoiding listening to the music since its release but let me tell you, the wait was worth it.BWW Review: You Won't Feel Like a Wallflower at DCPA's WILD PARTY October 23, 2017
I think I'm addicted to immersive theatre, especially the way Denver Center's Off-Center has been bringing it. Their most recent production is a fully realized musical The Wild Party, a jazzy show set in the Roaring Twenties, where audience members can sip their gin alongside the performers. You're even encouraged to dress up in your best flapper attire.BWW Review: ONCE at Midtown Feels Like Broadway October 12, 2017
Ever since I saw Once on tour, I've been intrigued how it would do regionally. The show itself isn't necessarily complicated, but you need to find actors who can sing well and play a variety of instruments while maintaining accents, or the show just doesn't work.
