For the three people who are not aware of the show, Jesus Christ Superstar is a fabulous rock opera that debuted in 1971 on Broadway and that many know from its 1973 film. It tells the story of the final days of Jesus as told through the eyes of Judas. This show has amazing music and is easily one of my favorite Andrew Lloyd Weber shows. It showcases rock vocals and can be as minimal or as grand as the stage allows.BWW Review: MY FAIR LADY at South Bend Civic Theatre July 24, 2018
There are shows that I believe get rave reviews, awards, and heralded as classics because, at some point, "true theatre people" aren't allowed to not like them. If you bring up Oklahoma, Hello, Dolly, or The Sound of Music, and don't fawn over it for hours, you are expected to turn in your theatre card and walk away from all conversations thereafter. My Fair Lady, as a musical, falls into this category for me.BWW Review: THE REALISTIC JONESES at The Acting Ensemble June 26, 2018
"The Realistic Joneses" is one of New York Times' top 25 plays since 1993 and when you see it at "The Acting Ensemble" you will be able to see why. Seyhan Killic has gathered a group of actors together that seem to effortless fill their roles.BWW Review: SEASIDE CABARET at Art 4 June 26, 2018
If you are looking for a cool night out with friends or a fun date night with plenty of music, look no further than Art 4's Seaside Cabaret. This isn't your normal cabaret, by any means. It's not a sad tale of someone's coming out story, a tale of fighting alcoholism, or a story about how influential all these deep cuts of the Beatles are and don't you feel dumb for not knowing the words to these songs?BWW Review: THE GIN GAME at The Beckwith Theatre Company June 16, 2018
One would think a writer would be mad to take two people, lock them on a porch, and force them to talk through multiple games of gin rummy to entertain an audience. That is exactly what The Beckwith Theatre Company does with its production of "The Gin Game".BWW Review: SKYLIGHT at South Bend Civic Theatre June 12, 2018
South Bend Civic Theatre and Director Mark Abram-Copenhaver have produced a quite insightful and interesting show in 'Skylight'. Written by David Hare, there is very little in the script that takes you into the magical world of 1995 and Mark and his cast keep the show timeless through costuming, big band music being played on a record player, and the decor of the apartment being appropriately understated.
