BWW Review: LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS at Ridgefield Theater Barn
September 7, 2019

On Friday, September 6, I had the pleasure of seeing Neil Simon's comedy LAST OF THE RED HOT LOVERS at the Ridgefield Theater Barn in Ridgefield, CT.  This amazing cast, under director Michael Ferrara manages to successfully maximize every line and motion.  Whether the line or movement needs to be emphasized or whether it is more comedic if delivered casually, everything they do works!

August 12, 2019

On Friday, August 9, I had the pleasure of seeing the inaugural production of Downtown Cabaret Theatre's Decades in Concert series, which is THE SOUNDS OF THE SEVENTIES. This approximate two hour performance includes nearly fifty different songs, performed by four extremely talented cast members. Mikayla Petrilla, Saige Bryan, Robert Peterpaul, and Everton Ricketts all have incredible voices, strong stage presences, tremendous acting skills, tight stage chemistry with each other, and a positive attitude of genuinely enjoying their performance, radiating positive energy all throughout this packed house! The choreography by Jennifer Kaye helps highlight the excellent dancing and synchronization skills from this first rate cast.

BWW Review: SHREK, THE MUSICAL at Musicals At Richter
July 29, 2019

On Friday, July 26, I had the pleasure of seeing the musical comedy SHREK, THE MUSICAL, as put on by Musicals at Richter in Danbury, CT.  Directed by Lindsay O'Neil, this talented cast brings these characters to life! The outdoor venue on the grounds of the Richter House Arts Center is perfect for this show. I highly recommend this show!

BWW Review: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST at Sharon Playhouse
July 22, 2019

I witnessed the best stage effects I have ever seen anywhere (including Broadway), when  on Saturday, July 20, I had the pleasure of seeing BEAUTY AND THE BEAST at the Sharon Playhouse, in Sharon, CT!   While this story is likely familiar to most people, the Sharon Playhouse grips the audience right from the start, not merely by elevating the Enchantress into the air, but by having the Young Prince transformed into the Beast, on stage, in front of the whole audience, in a manner of seconds, with effective use of strobe lights, a successful undertaking of a greater magnitude than what people can expect in a typical magic show, much less a musical!  Without providing any spoilers, for those of you familiar with how the story ends, that happens on stage too, right before our eyes, with effective use of strobe lights.  Lighting Designer Jamie Roderick deserves a lot of credit for working what appears like magic, on the stage.  Every show I have seen at Sharon Playhouse has been wonderful, but this is the best!

BWW Review: BIRDS OF NORTH AMERICA at Thrown Stone Theatre Company
July 19, 2019

On Thursday, July 18, I had the pleasure of seeing America's East Coast Premiere of BIRDS OF NORTH AMERICA, as put on by Thrown Stone, at the Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance, in Ridgefield, CT.  This play, written by Anna Moench, is yet another brilliant selection by Thrown Stone, bringing a meaningful show to a new audience.   Under the phenomenal direction of Jason Peck, this highly talented two person cast of J.R. Sullivan and Melisa Breiner-Sanders who portray father and daughter, respectively, have such an excellent stage chemistry with each other that, combined with the intimate setting of the venue makes it easy for the audience to forget that we are watching a show, and not eye-witnessing a real father and daughter interacting.  

BWW Review: CRY IT OUT at Thrown Stone Theatre Company
July 12, 2019

On Thursday, July 11, I had the pleasure of seeing the Connecticut debut of Molly Smith Metzler's emotionally intense dark comedy CRY IT OUT, as put on by Thrown Stone at the Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance in Ridgefield, CT.  Thrown Stone is yet again masterfully performing a production that immediately grips the attention of the audience, stimulates the mind, touches the emotions, and captivates us with the story line, drawing us right in, in such an intimate setting that it makes us feel as if we are eyewitnesses to actual events.

BWW Review: SPAMALOT at Musicals At Richter
July 1, 2019

On Friday, June 28, I had the pleasure of seeing the farcical Monty Python musical SPAMALOT performed outdoors by Musicals at Richter, on the grounds of the Richter House, next to the Richter Park Golf Course in Danbury, CT. I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience with Musicals at Richter. I am very impressed at the high level of talent that they have assembled together to perform what is truly a wonderful production for all in attendance, and all on stage. The show is brilliantly directed by Shannon Courtney Denihan with musical direction by Tracey Marble and Claire Simard.

BWW Review: BARNUM at Fairfield Center Stage
June 28, 2019

On Thursday, June 27, I had the pleasure of seeing another Fairfield Center Stage masterpiece, BARNUM in a spectacular manner that I have never seen it before, outdoors, outside the Fairfield Museum and History Center. The performers are so talented that the show comes across as a brilliant combination between a theatrical stage production and a circus. This is consistent with Fairfield Center Stage's innovative ventures of bringing special uniqueness to each show, in this case, presenting the dramatized life of P.T. Barnum (with much poetic license) in a way that makes the audience feel as if they are at 'the greatest show on Earth.'

BWW Review: CRAZY FOR YOU at Sharon Playhouse
June 24, 2019

On Saturday, June 22, I had the pleasure of seeing a phenomenal performance of CRAZY FOR YOU, the musical, at the Sharon Playhouse in Sharon, CT.

June 10, 2019

On Friday, June 7, I had the pleasure of seeing ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST at the Ridgefield Theater Barn in Ridgefield, CT.  This brilliantly written and phenomenally performed dark drama is based on the novel by Ken Kesey and adapted for the stage by Dale Wasserman.  Director Kevin Sosbe brings the best out in this strong cast of actors and actresses whose talents blend together well, creating a show that excels in generating intense feeling and emotion from the captivated audience.

BWW Review: I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE at Connecticut Cabaret Theatre
June 3, 2019

I LOVE YOU, YOU'RE PERFECT, NOW CHANGE is an excellent show that takes a comedic look at male/female dynamics among singles and among married people. The stellar cast of Jon Escobar, Nick D'Angelo, Kristin Iovene, and Cristin Marshall all play multiple roles, all in which all four of them excel. I highly recommend this show for single and married adults. The Connecticut Cabaret Theatre in BErlin, CT has yet again presented a first-rate show.

BWW Review: THE SECRET GARDEN at Fairfield Center Stage
May 13, 2019

I believe that I can say with confidence that Fairfield Center Stage puts THE SECRET GARDEN on in such a manner that Broadway would never be able to compete with!  This show is a brilliant continuation of Fairfield Center Stage's consistent remarkable ability to bring familiar things to an audience in the best way we have ever seen!  Fairfield Center Stage goes that extra mile to bring fantasy production undertakings to reality that they successfully pull off.  On Friday, May 10, I had the pleasure of seeing the opening night performance at the Pequot Library in Fairfield, CT. 

BWW Review: THE WAFFLE HOUSE FIVE at Pantochino Productions
April 29, 2019

On Sunday, April 28, I had the pleasure of seeing THE WAFFLE HOUSE FIVE as put on by Pantochino Productions at the MAC in Milford, CT.  This musical comedy features book and lyrics by Director Bert Bernardi with music by Justin Riggs. This tells the story of Waffle House workers who agree to split the winnings if any of them win the lottery, and how that plays out, if one of them really does win.
