GODSPELL is about community. Pandora has revived this 1971 classic in a way that speaks directly to the Louisville LGBTQ+ community today, casting LGBTQ+ artists and staging the production to reflect on our current issues and struggles.

This production is a celebration of the creative and collaborative magic of theatre, and what a night of live local entertainment can offer that scrolling through television channels can't. With this show about Jesus and his teachings, Pandora presents theatre as a new kind of church, especially for those in the LGBTQ+ community that often feel excluded from Christian organizations and yet still seek to commune and explore our own morality and humanity through song, rituals, and storytelling.

Remaining performance dates: 3/23 @ 7:30PM, 3/24 @ 7:30PM, 3/25 @ 7:30PM. Tickets available at or by calling 502.216.5502.

Broadway Beyond Louisville Review: INTO THE WOODS at Tennessee Performing Arts Center

What did our critic think of INTO THE WOODS at Tennessee Performing Arts Center? The star-studded cast is led by Tony Award winner Stephanie J. Block and Sebastian Arcelus as The Baker’s Wife and the Baker respectively. They’re a real-life couple, so their chemistry is justly wonderful, but I cannot express how amazing their individual performances are as well.

Broadway Beyond Louisville Review: Broadway in Cincinnati presents MOULIN ROUGE! at the Aronoff Center

In 2001, Baz Luhrumann's film welcomed the world to the Moulin Rouge. The film is credited as part of the resurgence of movie musicals in the early 2000s, and continues to be an audience favorite. After whispers of a stage adaptation for years and years, the dream became a reality in 2018 with an out-of-town tryout in Boston.  Moulin Rouge finally opened on Broadway in the Summer of 2019, as an instant hit. That Broadway season was cut short in March of 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but when the season resumed in the Fall of 2021, it was nominated for 14 Tony Awards (winning 10, including best musical). The show finally embarked on its highly anticipated national tour in 2022.
