BWW Review: THE BODYGUARD at Starlight Theatre
August 10, 2017

If you want guaranteed show-stopping numbers create a musical with some of Whitney Houston's greatest hits. That's what Warner Brothers did when they released the movie THE BODYGUARD and what works the best in the touring production of the hit London show of the same name.

March 8, 2017

BWW Review: THE BOOK OF MORMON at Music Hall
December 8, 2016

As a musical theatre nerd, but broke college student, I have heard the cast recording to The Book of Mormon and watched the Tony's performances many times, but have never seen the show in full. Nevertheless, I thought I was pretty prepared for what I was getting myself into when I went and saw it at Music Hall. I was wrong.

BWW Review: GIRLS ONLY-THE SECRET COMEDY OF WOMEN at Starlight Indoor Series
October 12, 2016

As a woman, I know that we go through a lot of struggles, and I'm not even talking politically. There's the fact that you can be a C cup at one store but a B cup at another, there is a ton of pressure from the media to be thin, and don't even get me started on panty hose. But that's where the women of 'Girls Only-The Secret Comedy of Women' come in.

BWW Reviews: THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY at Starlight Theatre

Growing up with fairy tales we are used to a happy ending. In the movie, the guy always gets the girl. But THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY playing at Starlight Theatre changes all of those preconceived notions.

BWW Review: A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN at Theaterleague
March 23, 2016

I was pretty excited to see this show, I do not usually look anything up about a show if I do not know a whole lot about it; I like to go in completely blind. But a minute into this show I started to panic, I knew nothing about Janis Joplin. I guess I should have known from the title what I was in for, but I expected it to be a play where I would learn about her (a la Jersey Boys style), but this was a rock concert, so I started to feel like I would not be able to do a good job reviewing this show. I mean I'm a 90's baby. The first album I ever bought was a two-disc compilation of Britney Spears and 'N SYNC songs, followed by Spiceworld. So what would I know about a 60's rock and roll singer with a love for the blues?
