BWW Review: PIPPIN at Ephrata Performing Arts Center
July 19, 2019

How appropriate that Ephrata Performing Arts Center selected Pippin as its summer musical. The heat on stage easily matches the muggy temperature of the July night outside

Annie is a great night of summer entertainment for the whole family. Don't wait until "Tomorrow" to go see it

Robbins's choreography was athletic and imaginative. His incorporation of unusual props like briefcases and swim flippers made the dance numbers highly memorable and very enjoyable.

BWW Review: SPRING AWAKENING at Hershey Area Playhouse
May 18, 2019

The show's songs are electric and in your face; movement is sharp and aggressive. In a nutshell, Spring Awakening is the show that American Idiot aspires to be.

BWW Review: NEXT TO NORMAL at Fulton Theatre
May 17, 2019

Tolpegin is magnificent in her portrayal. So often...an actor's depiction of mental illness is totally externalized...sobbing hysterical laughter, jerky body movements. Tolpegin doesn't rely on such tricks. We learn about her through her dialogue and song, but we are not always privy to her private internal struggles and suffering. This is the difference between a caricature and a character.

BWW Review: DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS at Resident Theater Company
March 31, 2019

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a show that is both fun and funny.  The Resident Theater Company has once again upped their game and produced a very high quality show.  Their tagline of 'NY Theatre in West Chester' is no mere hyperbole. 

BWW Review: ONCE at Fulton Theatre
March 23, 2019

Fulton Theatre's current production of Once is plagued by an unforgivable flaw...it's boring.

BWW Review: JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT at Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre

BWW Review: DOUBT at Theatre Harrisburg
March 8, 2019

Theatre Harrisburg's Doubt is a profound, thoughtful and timely night of theater. The horrendous accusations of sexual abuse within the clergy is as relevant today as it was during the show's fictional 1960's Catholic school setting.

BWW Review: LUCKY STIFF at Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre
February 16, 2019

You might not be familiar with the latest Dutch Apple production, Lucky Stiff. The 1988, Off-Broadway show might best be described as 2 parts Weekend at Bernie's, 1 part Brewster's Millions, with a splash of The Bucket List thrown in for good measures. Those who appreciate broad, farcical comedies will also probably enjoy this show.

BWW Review: THE GLASS MENAGERIE at Fulton Theatre
February 16, 2019

Fulton's production of The Glass Menagerie is a very good show presented in a mediocre environment. It's like sitting down to lobster in a school cafeteria.

The Fulton's Chicago is sexy and sultry. It is going to get you hot and bothered. So much so that exit doors were opened during intermission to cool down both actors and audience.

BWW Review: STAND BY YOUR MAN at Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre
January 17, 2019

The Dutch Apple production of Stand By Your Man provides a non-glamorized portrayal of one of country music's biggest icons.  The performances are very strong within a script that could still use a little work.
