Review: HAMILTON at The Overture Center Photo Review: HAMILTON at The Overture Center
by Scott Rawson - August 11, 2022

There have been a million reviews of Hamilton, so you may wonder what could I possibly add? I wondered the same thing. Even as I write this I wonder, there is no real insight here. Everything you have read is true. “It’s amazing!” “5 Stars!!” “Brilliantly written and stage!” All the things. Yes, it ...

What did our critic think? AIN'T TOO PROUD THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE TEMPTATIONS follows the timeline of the Temptations, a Grammy winning group with 42 top ten hits, from conception as narrated by Otis Williams (Marcus Paul James) the group's founder and only surviving original member....
BWW Review: NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 at Four Winds Farm For Capital Photo BWW Review: NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 at Four Winds Farm For Capital City Theatre
by Angie Stanton - June 14, 2022

What did our critic think? Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812 is not your typical musical. It is an immersive, emotional, raucous ride that I was thrilled to have witnessed. It is not, to say the least, your typical musical. In fact, it is an electro pop opera featuring a mix of rock, pop, so...
BWW Review: DEAR EVAN HANSEN at The Overture Center Photo BWW Review: DEAR EVAN HANSEN at The Overture Center
by Scott Rawson - May 12, 2022

Dear Evan Hansen has been a long-awaited show for this reviewer and it did not disappoint. The show was inspired by the true story of Benj Pasek, the show's lyricist, who, after a high school classmate died of a drug overdose, witnessed classmates tell false stories of being part of the deceased stu...

by Scott Rawson - March 23, 2022

The Prom is a hilarious romp about a very weighty and far-reaching issue. The issue of course is that actors are perceived as narcissistic and shallow. Well, that and a high school in Indian is canceling the prom so that out of the closet lesbian Emma (Kaden Keaney) won't attend....

by Scott Rawson - March 10, 2022

I cannot imagine the bravery of the actor in last nights performance of NASSIM. The premise is simple. One actor on stage performing a never seen script....

After nearly two years, the Overture Center welcomes back Broadway touring shows. There’s no better show to usher in the new season than FIDDLER ON THE ROOF with its theme of tradition, and it was a roaring success....

by Scott Rawson - July 05, 2021

It was another beautiful day up The Hill. Today’s picnic menu included canned cocktails (they’re better than you’d think), fried chicken and cholate mousse tort from an area café. It did not, unfortunately, include any Cognac....
