Lyric Theatre Rocks the Plaza With Spectacular ROCK OF AGES Lyric Theatre Rocks the Plaza With Spectacular ROCK OF AGES
by Robert Barossi on October 12, 2017 in Oklahoma

There are few decades that elicit the kind of immediate, emotional and visceral response that you get when you mention the 1980s to anyone who was around during that era. There's just something about the 80s. The movies, the pop culture, the music, the politics, everything that went on during that decade seems to be somehow extra unique or extra special, especially to those who lived during those times. The hair band glam rock of the 80s gets the musical treatment in Rock of Ages, now running at the Lyric Theatre's home on the Plaza. (more...)

Stroll Down Memory Lane with CityRep's A CLOSER WALK WITH PATSY CLINE Stroll Down Memory Lane with CityRep's A CLOSER WALK WITH PATSY CLINE
by Robert Barossi on September 16, 2017 in Oklahoma

There have been many great singers who left an indelible mark on the music industry and who created music that has stood the test of time long after their voices fell silent. Among them is an undeniable country music legend who changed the game in many ways and blazed a trail for numerous female country artists to follow, the incomparable Patsy Cline. Although her life and career were cut tragically short in 1963, Cline's music and voice are still instantly recognizable and her impact is still felt in the country music world even today. To open their season, CityRep is currently presenting a show that provides a window into the life of the legendary singer and a chance to hear many of her most beloved songs, sung live on stage. While A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline does succeed in bringing to life those songs in quite spectacular fashion, the show as a whole is a mixed bag, an odd combination of disparate and at times frustrating elements that never really gel into a cohesive whole.

by Ronn Burton on September 11, 2017 in Oklahoma

Okay, let's just get real for a moment: if one approaches this show as an adult and compares it with the canon of theatrical literature, this a production which often falls flat. However, in comparison to average children's entertainment (which is clearly the producers' targeted demographic) it holds up well. Your average elementary aged kid will be thoroughly and utterly charmed. But the parents who brought them? That might be a different story. The performers are all supremely talented, with dozens of Broadway shows to their credit. Even if I felt they might have been instructed to push every moment, they still allow their glorious voices to shine through. While it doesn't run in the same league as the classic Disney films, this production does its job: providing fluffy entertainment for an evening out after school, getting through everything as quickly as possible to make sure the kids get back home in bed to be ready for school tomorrow.
